Nicole has been our pet groomer for many years. We had to go on a WAIT list to become clients because she is so wonderful! We have had senior dogs who required special care and she has always been so good with every single one of them. I cannot say enough about how much our family appreciates her. Now that she’s doing this, I know she’ll do just as wonderful a job as ...

Nikki is amazing with dogs. She watched my dog Blaze who is a handful and she handled him like a pro, and he loved her. Nikki has a ton of patience and all the love in the world for dogs. She is a kind hearted person that treats other dogs as her own. The best dog sitter in my opinion!

I am so excited that she is going to be pet sitting, because I have never left my dogs with anyone ...

20+ Years Pro Pet Care Experience

Animals have always been my life. Every pet will receive the love and attention they deserve. I grew up with dogs, cats, rabbits, birds and even rats as pets. I got to work with horses at a stable, and various livestock/farm animals. My first job at the age of 16 was working as a veterinary assistant where I also learned the basics of dog grooming, and operating a boarding kennel. The clinic I worked ...

When Nicole watches your pet

When the weather permits, walks around the neighborhood will be enjoyed with plenty of time to stop and sniff. For dogs that have energy to burn, we will keep a faster pace. When the heat picks up, I will be considerate of your dogs’ feet and the heat, and walks will be restricted to cooler grassy areas. During the peak summer heat, outdoor exercise walks may only happen in the early morning hours, otherwise indoor play would be a better option.
