I couldn't be happier with Nicole's care of my dog, Ernie, who is my only child (furry or not). She and her family are truly wonderful... Ernie loves the time he spends with them, as evidenced by the smiles in the copious number of photos she sends, which are an enormous comfort to me when I'm away. I am confident that he's in good hands and is well taken care of and having a blast ...

Nicole is simply amazing and my pup loves going to her home. It seems like it’s always an adventure for my dog at Nicole’s home. Whether she’s baking doggie cookies, playing with the pups or just hanging out, my dog, Penny, is always having fun. Nicole is attentive, caring and is just a great person. Thank you, Nicole! You’re the best!

Nicole was great as usual!! My pup Huey always has a good time while at Nicole's house and she keeps me thoroughly updated on Huey's day with her. If you need a pup sitter in the Alexandria area I highly recommend Nicole, she is awesome and her place is like a home away from home for my pup, Huey!!!

A Doggy Shangri-La

Hi there, I'm Nicole and welcome to Doggy Shangri-La. When your dog stays with me they can enjoy a beautiful, peaceful home away from home. I can't wait to meet both of you.

In our home your dog can roam freely from room to room and spend time in a family environment where they will be treated just like our own dogs. They can curl up in front of our fireplace on a cold winter ...

What Nicole would like to know about your dog

I'd like to know as much as possible about your dog before they come visit. Are they good with other dogs and strangers? Are they up to date on their vaccinations? What do they enjoy? Do they have any separation anxiety? What can we do to make their stay great?!
