My Skills and Commitment

I love dogs and most pets! I have had dogs with my ex for 20 plus years (most recently we had 3 bigger dogs before we split up). I am very comfortable looking after so called "bully" breeds like pits, bull dogs, and other misunderstood breeds. I am really good with large dogs and multi-pet families. I recently completed a course on Pet Emergency Response and CPR.

I am great at reading dog body language, I love to play, and I can help re-enforce your commands that you use at home with your buddy. I am also an expert at giving cuddles. I have learned a ton from my ex, who owned a doggy daycare and boarding business, about using positive reinforcement, socializing, and caring for shy dogs. Each animal has a distinct personality and preferences.

I am available 7 days a week and I work from home, so I have a flexible schedule. I also enjoy pet sitting for other kinds of pets too, if that is helpful. I have experience with pet birds, cats, chickens, and I love most animals. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to ask!

"Nicole has cared for our corgis on two different trips and has done a wonderful job! She certainly puts our dogs at ease and they seem very comfortable with her. Nicole kept us well informed if there was a need or concern. A big indicator of her service is when we have returned from both trips, they were happy to see us. We definitely would choose her for our pet sitting needs. We feel she is great with our two and we are happy and confident with Nicole!"  - Kingsley & Molly
