Nicole is the best dog sitter I've ever had. She is well versed in dog behavior and training techniques. She does an excellent job managing the dogs in her care to make sure they all get socialized with new dogs while also getting to play with their favorite friends in smaller groups. She sends lots of very cute videos of my dogs when they're there which I appreciate a lot. She has given me a ...

Nicole is just great! My 7 1/2 month old pup has been spending several days a week at her house for many weeks now. Nicole is caring and insightful, organized and a great communicator. She is a dog trainer, and a dog owner and just seems to know so much about dogs -- a big help for a first time puppy parent!
Under close supervision, my pup plays inside and out, (many pics videos are ...

Doggy adventures, rain or shine!

I'm a certified dog trainer(Michael Ellis School for Dog trainers) more than happy to work with dogs that have issues or aren't that great with walking on leash. Reactive and fearful dogs welcome! Providing these dogs with a safe and calm experience is what I strive towards. My philosophy is based in positive reinforcement, providing plenty of love and patience, with a good dose of fun and interactive exercise.

My goal is to help ...

What Nicole would like to know about your dog

I prefer to keep clear lines of communication open so I can provide you and your dog with the best experience I am able to share. Changes to pick up and drop off times are not a problem, I ask only to be kept updated.

Aggression, fear, special requirements/needs, and other behavior problems are not deal breakers, but I absolutely must know these things in order to provide a safe environment for all under my care. Please tell me of these issues in advance.

Please label your dog's food/treats with their name and include a note on how much they should receive per meal. Provide the scoop/cup if you are unsure on the exact quantity. If food/treats are not provided for me there will be a $2 charge added to the service per day per dog since I will have to use my own.

When Nicole watches your pet

Nail trims are an optional add-on that I offer with all services and cost $5. Daycare and Boarding clients be sure to ask me about my dog treadmill and the benefits it can provide for your dog. Rates are $10 per session and are guaranteed to provide your dog with a good workout regardless of their fitness level, age, or outside conditions.

Walks during daycares are highly weather dependent and length of time varies accordingly. I never walk more than one dog at a time and do not leave those under my care at home unsupervised during walks for more than half an hour. Hikes and park visits can be arranged, talk to me beforehand about your preferences and we will see what can fit in with your dog's stay!
