We love Nikki and so does Stewie! She is so wonderful with him and clearly knows a lot about dogs and puppies. She's always reliable and sends us plenty of updates and pics after each visit. We are SO happy to have found such a wonderful human-friend for our pup.

Nikki is great! She stops by a couple times a week to take out my two older (10+ years) dogs. One of my dogs is a little shy about going out, but Nikki is able to get her going with affection and treats. Nikki sends me photos whenever she drops by, and it makes my work day. I am happy to schedule her on a regular basis.

It was love at first site. My dog ran over to Nikki before he knew she was going to be walking him. It is very apparent she is a dog lover. Nikki is always patient, punctual and professional. We are both happy we found her!!

Flexible to Suit Your Needs!

Hi! I'm Nikki. I've been a professional dog walker, boarder, and home sitter for 10 years in the DC area. I started off after college by helping one of my friends maintain her pet care business. I love caring for dogs of all size, personality, and needs! I especially love sharing walks with dogs all throughout our beautiful city! I'd love to meet with you and your pet to learn about your routine and care ...

What Nikki would like to know about your dog

It is my goal to maintain your pets daily routine as they would at home. I like to know your pets walk schedule, meal schedule, beauty routine, allergies, medicine needs, vet and emergency contact information. I also like to know about how your pet socially interacts with other dogs, adults, and children so that I can prepare the most comfortable and safe environment for all.

When Nikki watches your pet

I live in the Brightwood/Takoma neighborhood of DC where the streets are low traffic and the parks are lush and plentiful! When your pet stays with me, you can rest assure that he/she will get lots of walks, social interaction with other friendly dogs in the neighborhood, and cuddly snuggle time with yours truly! I am also happy to run/jog with your pet or take them to nearby dog parks.
