Nicola is great with animals of all kinds! I’ve seen her serenade backyard chickens and have them run over and sing with her. She is loving and kind with all animals, but especially with large dogs. She is knowledgeable about training techniques, and is conscientious about reinforcing good behavior while helping to reduce bad habits. Nicola is a dependable pet sitter, and she brings her love of animals to each appointment. Your pets will ...

Nicola Is a reliable and trustworthy champion to all creatures big and small. Even my very scared adopted senior doggo comes out, tail wagging, when Nicola comes over. She also helped my 3-year old conquer her fear of passing cars and loud noises on walks. Now our walks are much less stressful for both of us. She truly has a gift.

When Nicola watches your pet

Scheduled 30 minute dog walks could include a trip to a favor local park, dog-paced walks or runs if requested (extra charge for runs), loose-leash walking training/reinforcement.
Book more time to arrange a custom outing, like an extended in-town adventure or hike to nearby trails.

Scheduled 30 minute check-in visits are great for low-energy dogs or cats who need some moderate exercise, a fun mid-day break, or check-in and feeding if you're away. Each visit includes (at minimum) a 15-20 play session, as much fun as we can cram in, fresh food & H2O as needed, & poop-scoop (yard/patio or up to 2 litter boxes).
