Nikki did drop in visits for my car over Christmas vacation and she was amazing! She came and met the cat and I before hand, then came and got the keys before we left. She provided full write ups about each visit with great pictures, my cat got along with her great. I will definitely be having her cat sit for me again in the future! She even left a cute Christmas card :)

Nikki is an amazing sitter! It was my first time using Rover and I couldn't be more pleased with my sitter. She did a meet and greet beforehand, and was very caring, well-prepared and punctual throughout the visits. She took great care and Kittoo felt right at home with her, I would definitely book Nikki again!

Nikki was a real sweetheart,

she took great care of Denali, gave him plenty of walk, playtime and lots of snuggles.
Before she watched him she made sure everything was clear, she was very well prepared.
I would book her again anytime as the 2 of them really hit it of =)

Pita Pata Paws Dog Walking/Sitting

Hi There!

I am a dog walker and cat sitter that has grown up with dogs and cats all of my life. Both dogs and cats are my passion. I have worked with the City of Vancouver with Emergency Social Services as a Pet Care Coordinator until 2008. I also took a course on pet grooming. I have my Walks n' Wags Pet First Aid, and it is current until August 10th, 2021. I have ...

What Nikki would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preferences …I love all dogs. (Just not any that are ferocious which is very uncommon.)

Does your dog have any allergies? May I give them treats? How long of a walk do they like? Will I be staying overnight? What size is your dog? Is he/she good in cars and do they have a carrier in case I need to take them out of the neighbourhood on transit if they are small? I ask this because I do not drive. Have you filled out your care & emergency instructions on the Rover Site?

When Nikki watches your pet

I do Basic Training with the dogs on there walk all the time. I feel it is essential to keep their mind busy and engaged walk going for their turn. This leads to a happier and healthier dog through their lives. Playtime is also necessary at a young age, and I use this as a method of praise. I use Positive Reinforcement Training while being firm when needed and never contrary, harsh words.
