Nina was great with my senior dog. She sent plenty of pictures and updates. She responded to my messages promptly and was very thorough in her discussions. My pup looked well taken care of in every picture. I would definitely recommend using her!

Nina took good care of my two cats while I was on Vacation in Florida for a week! She is very reliable.

Nina has watched Wiley many times while I've been away from the house or at work.

He has a ton of energy and she's great with him. She takes him on more dog adventures (parks, walks, runs) than I do. You'll get more dog pictures than you could possibly want :) Leaving your pup with Nina is definitely leaving him in good hands.

Student & home often, love to run!

I absolutely love dogs, and as a result of my family not allowing pets, I have grown up with and gone out of my way to take care for family and friends' dogs- so truthfully I have 20+ years of experience with them. I've done all of the below so many times I can't even count:
-Housed and cared for dogs overnight at my home (many times, over a week)
-Walked them alone or with ...

What Nina would like to know about your dog

I would need to know how well they are trained, particularly in going to the bathroom (do they have accidents, are they comfortable with waiting until they go outside), and how many times during the day you take them outside. I also need to know the kind of exercise they need daily, so I can prepare the day to best fit your pup. I would also need to know about their attitude towards other dogs and people, if they can't be in the house for more than three hours alone (again, if I have to be on campus for a certain time) or if they have experienced any sort of trauma- understanding this will allow me to best prepare their time spent with me. I would also like to know feeding schedules, any special circumstances or medications, or toys they like.

When Nina watches your pet

I live right by Lake Shore Drive and The Museum of Science and Industry, so it's perfect to take dogs on walks/runs by the lake, or by the many parks near my house! I'm a very active person and I love to run with dogs if they enjoy it, or just walk them if they don't. I get out of the house as much as possible, and will do so with your pup if they need lots of exercise! I'm a very loving and playful caretaker, but able to be strict when/if needed. You won't have to worry about your dog getting enough petting or playtime with me! If your dog is staying with me, I clean and dog-proof my apartment beforehand to make it a safe and comfortable space for them. I will also bathe them for free (but only bathe). I do not dog-sit multiple pups from different owners, so you know your dog(s) is getting the care and attention it deserves.
