Nicole is a thorough and caring individual. Willow reacted to her positively from the first moment. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
She ticked all the boxes, caring, confident, thorough, energetic and thoughtful.
Should the need arise I would not hesitate to employ her again..
A thoughtful plus was the lovely pics I received daily, they were a nice touch, which at the onset I thought frivolous, but during the weekend while away I found ...

Thank you, Louise! I had such a wonderful time sitting for Willow. She is one special dog! She reminds me ...

My dog seemed to really enjoy spending a couple days with Nicole. While Ellie was definitely happy to see me return it was obvious she was very comfortable with Nicole and had formed a bond with her. I would not hesitate in using Nicole again or recommending her to someone else.

Thanks Tyler! I loved having Ellie around this past weekend. She is a sweetheart and I would sit for her ...

ITB doggie retreat near North Hills

I live in a 3 bedroom condo just inside the beltline near North Hills with my shy, sweet 12 year old rescue dog named Angel.

I am out of the house from 8am - 11:30 taking a class M-F, but working from home the rest of the time, so your dog won't be alone for too long.

I'll give your dog plenty of play time, nice walks in nearby Prospect Park, and I'll be sure ...

What Nicole would like to know about your dog

I have sat dogs from 7 pounds to 107 pounds so far and we have all been happy! The size of your dog does not matter to me as long as we all think he or she will be comfortable in my apartment. It's also important that your dog gets along with - or at least tolerates - other dogs sharing the same space, since I have a dog.

Also, while all dogs bark, howl, and whine sometimes, I can't take in any dogs that are very yappy or barky. If your dog goes bananas when he or she hears noises or when you leave the house, my neighbors and landlord will not be pleased with me!

Finally, I unfortunately can't take in pitbulls, rottweilers, or dobermans due to my landlord's regulations. I also can't take puppies/dogs less than 1 year old.

When Nicole watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks

Prospect Park is a short walk from my place, so if your dog has the energy, I will take him or her to the park. We will also take shorter walks around the neighborhood in the morning, afternoon, and evening.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement

Most of my clients' dogs seem to like to sleep on the rug at the foot of my bed. If your dog has a dog bed, then please bring it (my dog doesn't like to share her dog bed!) If your dog wants to jump into bed with me, I won't protest!

Time I'll spend with your dog

I will spend the same amount of time with your dog as I do with mine. We'll take a walk in the morning, I'll come home during lunch to walk them again, after work and right before bedtime. .

We can discuss your expectations for how much time you'd like me to spend with your dog, and I will honestly tell you whether or not I can meet your expectations.
