We used Rover for the first time in a situation where our original care fell through and we desperately needed someone to walk our dog on Labor Day weekend. We contacted Nicole through Rover based on her availability and reviews. Nicole was pleasant, responsive, and thorough in our communications leading up to the walk and she sent photos of our good boy on his walk and after his walk. She clearly is experienced with animals ...

Nicole was awesome. We were new to the neighborhood, and new to Rover.com so I was a bit nervous. Nicole made our little one - Finsta, our cat feel happy, secure and spoiled. Games, cuddles, easy cheerful updates made us feel Fin was getting undivided love and attention as we travelled. The highlight of our vacation was Nicole’s pictures and updates. I felt she cared about him and could deal with any challenge. She was ...

Experienced dog and cat care

Hello! I am a yoga, barre, and fitness instructor who has relocated from San Diego where I also worked as a pet sitter for 3 years at an amazing business called Jules Royalty Pet Care. Since my husband and I lived in an apartment that didn't allow pets, I was able to get my fur-baby fix by walking dogs, lots of cuddles in cat visits, and doing overnights in client's homes. I have been surrounded ...

What Nicole would like to know about your dog

No breed preference - I love them all! Primarily, I would like to know if your dog gets along with other dogs and/or people (kids, males/females, etc.), medical issues, behaviors to note, any training you and your pup are working on, routines, etc.

When Nicole watches your pet

If your dog is active, I will walk, or go on a run with him/her, play with him/her in your home or backyard (tug-o-war is fun, or throwing the ball/toys, or getting their tails wagging and heart rate going in some way ;). I love, love, love cuddle time, so there is usually time spent just loving on them, and even more time spent giving love if they are older and/or not the active type. I always send a picture update with what we are doing and leave a journal entry for our adventures that day!
