Nicole was really wonderful with my pup, Opal! I had to book her within a very short time frame and she was incredibly accommodating. She’s the first person I’ve left Opal with for an extended period of time and I’m so glad I did. She sent pictures and I felt reassured Opal was very well taken care of! Will definitely use her services in the future and would encourage anyone else with ...

Experienced Vet Tech & Animal Lover

I am an experienced (I no longer work at a clinic) vet tech who would love to meet and care for your pet! I don't have any dogs of my own and would love to have your pet be my step-puppy while you're away for me to love and care for <3 Not having a dog of my own enables me to focus on pets that do best on a one-on-one basis without the worry ...

What Nicole would like to know about your dog

-If they are on any medications
-Feeding & Walking schedule
-If they are allowed to have toys/ treats
-If there are areas of their body that they are sensitive to touche. Ie. ears, tail, feet

I do not ave any breed discrimination! I have worked at a veterinarian clinic before, so certain characteristic traits are helpful to know. Is the pet on meds? Are there areas that they prefer to not have pet ie ears? Are they food aggressive? Little tid bits helps the sitting go smoothly :)

When Nicole watches your pet

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
If your pet has a bed, please feel free to bring it! If not, they are welcome to make a bed where they are most comfortable!

Time I'll spend with your dog
Your pet will have someone with him for the majority of their stay. If I am not home, my partner will be able to supervise while I am away!

Time I'll spend with your dog
It varies to each owners preference, the needs of the family member (the dog), and the amount of time that he is accustomed to having spent with him.
