This was our first time leaving our dog, Lucy, with a sitter for any length of time. After interviewing several both by phone and in person, we were generally disheartened by either the lack of knowledge, the poor behavior of the sitter's own pets, or the sheer number of animals already under their watch. Nicole was, immediately, a breath of fresh air.

Nicole has been walking my dog Winston, and it has been a great experience! She is very trustworthy and keeps you up to date on everything she does. I received photos and a route via text showing me where they walked and for how long they were out! I was so happy to see that my dog was so well taken care of while I am at work. I would absolutely recommend her services to ...

Pack Perfection


Luna and I recently relocated to Fort Lauderdale from NJ. After teaching for ten years, I decided to follow my heart into a new field of teaching- training dogs. I love helping dog owners and teaching their families how to work with their furry friends to ensure a happy, healthy relationship for all. For now, I am volunteering, spending time at a local training facility, and ...

What Nicole would like to know about your dog

I believe a meet and greet on neutral grounds is very important. It is also very important that Luna and the other dogs get along well. She is sweet, submissive, and playful and especially loves romping with dogs bigger than her. I would like to know about size, play style, and if the dog is house trained, and/or crated at night? Vaccination records are a must before staying with us. Prefer dogs that are spayed/neutered. Must provide information about flea, tick and heart worm treatment and provide updated vet records. There is an additional fee for extra large dogs.

When Nicole watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We enjoy the local neighborhood, but also appreciate variety. We like strolling downtown on Las Olas Blvd and along A1A too. At times, we head to parks to walk along trails. New smells are exciting so we keep things interesting!

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Your dog is welcome to sleep where he/she is comfortable. My pup sleeps on a dog bed in my room or in her crate. Yours is welcome to do the same. Many times, I turn our sunroom into a doggie bedroom, especially for multiple night stays.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I am with the dogs most of the day, except if a few errands need to be run. I will always walk the dogs at least two times a day for 20-30 minutes, depending on the dogs needs and the heat. Plus I will supervise all indoor and outdoor play.
