Nicole was wonderful with our dog. She followed his routine and kept us posted with daily pictures. We felt very comfortable having her stay in our home and didn't have to worry while we were away. We highly recommend Nicole and will be using her services again.

About Nicole

years of experience
  • Verified Background Check

Reliable, responsible and intuitive

Pets have been a part of my family my entire life, ranging from dogs and cats to hamsters, guinea pigs and fish. I have been a pet sitter since high school and even have experience caring for birds. After graduating from college I completed two internships in animal training at Mystic Aquarium and the Georgia Aquarium. Following this I completed the dog training certification program through PetSmart. I am currently a Masters student at UMass ...

What Nicole would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preferences. Before caring for a pet, I would like to know if they have any allergies or injuries/sore spots and if they take medication or require special attention, including ear treatments, tooth brushing, etc. I would also like to know if they have preferences for certain toys or treats, particularly anything that calms them when they are anxious (for example while their parents are away). Finally, I would like to know if they have any behavioral difficulties, such as separation anxiety, fear of storms, issues around children or other dogs, etc.

When Nicole watches your pet

I know that some dogs prefer the familiar so I will always defer to the parents first when choosing a place to walk and play. If anywhere will do, I love walking around the Sassaquin Pond neighborhoods, especially where there are sidewalks. It is also fun to go to Buttonwood Park and Fort Taber Park where there are new and fun things to see. Trips to the dog park can also be made, if this is routine. Otherwise, we will play! I am happy to continue any training if there are behaviors that are being practiced.
