About Me

I have been involved with animal rescue, welfare and rights my whole life. I am a long time vegetarian and currently volunteer at Animal Rescue New Orleans every Wednesday from 9am-2pm. My 2 dogs were adopted from the LASPCA 15 years ago and 3 cats are all rescues. My Pumpkin Kitty is a Katrina rescue. What a story there! I own my home and know my neighbors, many of whom I pet sit for when they are out of town.

I am a licensed Tour Guide in New Orleans, I have been background checked, fingerprinted and drug tested which are requirements to be a Tour Guide in New Orleans! I am gone from the house just a few hours a day and days I don't have tours I am home all day. My schedule varies week to week. I will be happy to share great places to visit, things to do and restaurants that are a must. There is a lot to do and see in New Orleans. I have maps, brochures and info at the house that I will share with you to make your visit to my wonderful city a great one. All this and your will know that your beloved dog will be lovingly cared for!

I am also a drummer in a Jazz Band so away from the home 2-4 hours when I have gigs. I have a regular Sunday Jazz Brunch from 11am-2pm, so dogs could not be dropped off or picked up during these times. My son lives 3 houses down from me with my grand-dog Dexter, so arrangements can be made if he is available. I live in the Uptown area 6 blocks from the St. Charles Streetcar line which can be taken to the French Quarter. Really nice "hood", great area for dog walking and Palmer Park is just a few blocks away.

I require that all dogs be neutered, chipped and or tagged. I will have a tag with my information that will be put on your dog while he or she is at my home. Can't have too many tags is my motto! Dogs will sleep on my bed if they want to or dog bed on floor. They will stay inside and will go on supervised walks. My backyard is fenced and I am out in my Tropical Paradise a lot, so they will go out when I am out there.

The photo is one of me Fat's Domino and Al Carnival Time Johnson for those who did not recognize "The Fat Man". He is not fat at all as you can see!

So, if you are considering a trip to the Crescent City, you have made a great choice for a vacation and I will be happy to take great care of your furry member of the family.

Below are some reviews of Nita H from real dog owners who have used their services on DogVacay.com!

Average Rating:
  • My dog had such a big time - what a treat for her! I have a very energetic 9 month old puppy that loved playing with Nita's pup, T-Bone. Not only is her place very convenient, Nita was flexible on her arrangement for picking up my dog. We would definitely use and recommend Nita.

  • Nita is a true animal lover! She didn't bat an eye when my dog peed on her floor upon our first meet-up. That's a patient and understanding pet owner! She is also attentive, responsible and smart about what your dog needs. Nita has a great crew of other animals that my dog loved being with. When my flight got in later than expected, Nita was very flexible with a new schedule that would work for both of us for picking up my dog. Great experience and would use Nita again when I go out of town!

  • Hi! If you want to have someone look after your dog and to treat your baby like they should be treated - Nita is the perfect person to see. Her house is inviting. There is a happy air to it and she loves dogs. This our second time with Nita. I feel comfortable leaving my sweet one with her. There are tons of things to do and walks are long and interesting plus Nita has a yard for pups to run around in that is neat and clean. We are planning a long trip in April. Usually I'd be agonizing over the fact that we have to be away from our pup for so long. Having her stay with Nita makes us feel better about the time that we're going to be away.

  • My dog, Lucille, had the time of her life at Nita's house while we were away. Nita is a true dog lover. She has two of her own that are sweet, well-mannered and loving. They welcomed Lucille and, from the very start, she felt at home. Nita's house is large enough for the dogs with plenty of fenced-in space backyard where Nita gardens while the doggies play. She lives in a nice, safe neighborhood. She kept in touch with us while we were gone by sending pictures and notes filling us in on Lucille's daily adventures. When we went to pick Lucille up, it was obvious that she had been well treated and paid good attention to. Nita does volunteer work with the homeless dogs at our local pound and has also fostered dogs from time to time. I will always ask Nita, whenever we are out of town, to take our love because we know she will not let our sweet girl be lonely or feel uncared for. Thanks DogVacay, you have a real gem in Nita.

  • Nita was awesome! She is so nice and personable, and has a real love for animals. She treated my babies like they were her own, and they loved her so much! My dog Sam, even sat on top of her piano and looked out the window. She is a fabulous host, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a dedicated person to watch their babies too! We will only be using Nita from now on. Thanks so much for getting us together.
