Nikki was very responsive to my questions and provided a clean, spacious home with a lovely back yard for our golden doodle to play in. She sent pictures during the day and updated me on how she was doing. I would recommend Nikki for doggy day care and will use her again.

Nikki was great! Super flexible and so great with my pup. She sent me updates of my pup during his stay and made sure he was well cared for. Highly recommended!

Home during day, fully fenced yard!

I'm available throughout the day to take care of your pup. I offer a positive, safe environment for my dogs and for any dogs that come into our home. I welcome all ages and all breeds of dogs. I live in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood. My husband also works from home, so he may help out some too. My backyard is a full quarter acre, with a secure 6 foot fence around it. I provide ...

What Nikki would like to know about your dog

I try to keep my calendar up to date, but if the dates you are interested in show as unavailable, feel free to double check with me. Occasionally there is a cancellation or I can make a change in my personal schedule that will allow me to host your pup. Also sometimes dates are blocked out if I am unsure of my schedule, so please ask.

Daycare/Boarding hours: Weekdays 7:30am-6pm, Weekends 8am-6pm. Pickups between 6-8:30pm are an extra $5 fee. No pickups after 8:30pm. If your dog stays past that time, a night of boarding will be charged.

Boarding rate covers a 24 hour period. I will give a 2 hour grace period for pickups, after which a $15 fee will be charged for daycare.

I require that all dogs be either crate trained or that you're okay with me putting them in one of my crates. I have 3 crates available, 2 large and 1 medium. I often have a couple other dogs here, and it's easier to manage them all if they have a space where they can call their own. I occasionally have to leave the house for 1-2 hours, and crates help insure that everyone is safe during that time.

In order to provide boarding services, your dog must be:
1. Up to date on vaccinations.
2. House/crate trained. Able to be left alone for at least 2 hours.
3. Dog friendly, with no history of aggression.
4. No significant destructive behaviors or excessive barking.

I'll be happy to provide you with photos and updates throughout your dog's stay. I know how stressful it can be to be away from your dog, and I want to make it as easy as it can be.

On the day you drop of your dog for boarding, please bring food with feeding instructions and a bowl if you can. If applicable, bring medication with instructions. I also recommend bringing a bed/blanket they sleep with, favorite toys and/or something to chew, and their crate (if possible to transport). It can be scary staying at a new place, so it's good to bring any items that you think will make your dog's stay more comfortable!

Thanks for stopping by! I really look forward to meeting you and your dog!

When Nikki watches your pet

Your dog will get plenty of time in my big backyard. They'll have a chance to play with my dog and with any other dogs they get along with. I supervise all play to make sure that dogs stay safe. I'll throw the ball for them, let them play with toys, pet them, and cuddle with them on the couch (if you're okay with that). If your dog is more laid back, I'm happy to sit and relax with them, enjoying the yard and the house. On weekends, I try to get them out for long walks or hikes in and around Bend. If they're good off leash, they can enjoy the walks and hikes untethered.
