I've known Nicole for almost a decade now and she is amazing with animals. She helped me train my hyperactive hound/terrier mix and figure out his triggers. She has dogsat my pups on multiple occasions and has gracefully taken care of any curveball my boys have thrown her.

Professional Care Provider

While obtaining my degrees in biology and psychology, my research focused on evolutionary development and behavioral neuroscience. I am experienced with countless species including: lizards, chameleons, insect feedings, felines, canines, and several exotic species including monkeys, pigs, rabbits, and snakes.

When Nicole watches your pet

This is so highly variable, it’s difficult to make accurate predictions. I am a master fetch thrower (my 17 year old bull terrier rescue still demands it daily), and a master tug toy participant after 10 years with my AmStaff mix. The activities depend on what the family and/or owner(s) are used to doing with their pet. It also can change once the dog trusts me and we need to come up with new activities to keep the dog mentally stimulated and comfortable/exercised depending on needs.
