About Nichole and Skylar

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello!

We are returning to DogVacay after taking a 5 month break for Nichole to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail! We are currently only booking through February as there may be another long hike in her future and we like to provide a two-parent doggy home :)

My husband and I live in a medium-sized ranch-style house with mostly wood floors throughout and no stairs to deal with (2 low steps to get up to the front door). We have a lovely private yard in a quiet and friendly neighborhood. It's not fenced in so guests are always leashed when outside, and we love going for long walks in the evenings or spending time relaxing on the patio after dinner. We are about a mile from the center of Morristown and sometimes walk into town on the weekends - let us know if your pup would enjoy coming along! We're rarely out of the house for more than 3-4 hours at a time.

We know it can be a stressful experience planning vacation and leaving your pup behind - we do everything we can to make sure both you and your dog are comfortable. We welcome our guests like one of the family. We do only take one dog at a time (or two dogs from the same family for a discounted total of $60 per night) to ensure our guests feel right at home. Your pup will be spoiled with cuddling and attention!

Looking forward to meeting you, and please let us know if you have any questions!

Nichole and Skylar are wonderful sitters -- responsive, organized, kind and caring. Tucker has always been so happy when we've picked him up after a visit with them! We highly recommend them to anyone looking for quality care and peace of mind.

Nichole and Skylar are AWESOME dog sitters! I found them via this site several years ago when my son and his family could no longer watch Mojo while I traveled, which was a lot. We had a "meet & greet" before Mojo spent an overnight and he made himself right at home immediately. Nichole wanted to know all about him, what he liked and his schedule. When we went back for his first "vacation", he went right up to the door and onto the couch. Nichole and Skylar sent photos to let me know he was doing ok. During the time I was in NJ, Mojo spent many vacations there, some as long as 3 weeks when I was in Hawai'i. I never worried about him and knew that he was being well taken care of. They are flexible about drop off/pick up times and will work with you to find a time that works for everyone. I moved to DE 2.5 years ago and was hoping to find another "Nichole & Skylar" but was unsuccessful. For the first year I was in DE, I would fly out of EWR so that I could leave Mojo with them. I have since found a DE dog sitter comparable to them, but we do visit, just to say hello, when in NJ. You couldn't have a more caring sitter for your fur baby then Nichole & Skylar!

As always, Holly was happy to go to Nichole and Skylar's for her vacation. She obviously enjoys herself there and is well looked after
Our dog can't wait for his next stay with Nichole and Skylar. They are very flexible with scheduling and responsive. I felt comfortable knowing that our dog was in good hands.
Nicole and Skykar were great. I felt comfortable leaving my two dogs with them, and will use them again in the future!
Nichole and Skylar did an AMAZING job watching our dog Hudson, for an extended four day weekend. Nichole was very particular about tending to our dog's specific needs, such as his schedule, habits, etc., which made us a lot more comfortable before we left. Even with poor weather, he got plenty of walks and outdoor activity, and the communication was great with updates and photos. Highly recommended!!!

Nichole and Skylar are a great couple who obviously love dogs. This was Holly's 7th time with them. She loves it there, is always happy to be left with them and comes back to us healthy and stress free. Nichole and Skylar also send us frequent updates and photos during our trips which is a wonderful reassurance for us.

Tinley loves her vacations with Nichole and Skylar! I'm a crazy dog mom and its hard for me to leave her, but I feel good knowing she is safe with them!
Once again, another fabulous stay-cay for my Abbi. Nichole & Skylar are simply the best. Abbi looks forward to visiting them each and every time. My trip is so much more enjoyable knowing how well she is being taken care of.
Nichole & Skylar took great care of our Labador Retriver, Duncan. We appreciated the texts and pictures that they sent to us.
Nichole and Skylar were very good with the girls. I would definitely recommend them.
Nichole and Skylar are quite literally The Best. Thank you again for another wonderful stay, and for true peace of mind while we enjoyed our trip.
Both Nichole and Skylar are very kind and make us feel welcomed. The place is very nice for dog. Nichole updated us with photos and how Ashton was doing daily. Will go back next time.
Excellent hosts. Our older dog has stayed with Nichole and Skylar several times and this past time was the first for our puppy. They both had a great stay and we are very comfortable knowing that our dogs are in their care. Their frequent updates and pictures are comforting. They are also very accommodating with scheduling. I highly recommend Nichole and Skypar without hesitation!

They were extremely flexible in scheduling our pick up and drop off times! Nichole was thorough on the phone before we dropped Tucker off and made me feel very comfortable leaving him with them. Tucker seemed very happy when we arrived to pick him up. We'll certainly use them again!

Our dog Stella had a great time at Nchole and Skylar's place, making her feel "home away from home". Stella was at their place for a week of family vacation and was very well taken care of. She was never alone for a longer period, had plenty of walks and attention. We will for sure consider Nichole and Skylar for future DogVacays for our dog Stella.

Nichole and Skylar took care of Olive the Pug last November. They were awesome with Olive who felt quite at home. I received a couple of texts and photos of Olive which was fun. Their home is on the way to Newark Airport which was very convenient. I would definitely use them again and I thank them for allowing me to enjoy my trip without worrying about my buddy.

One of the previous reviewers put it well - When I came to pick up Ellie after 2 weeks she was obviously happy to see me but she wasn't dying to get out the door and seemed like she would have been content staying with Nichole and Skylar for a while longer.

Nichole and Skylar were terrific hosts! Couldn't ask for better people to watch the pups!
Zoey and Bruno absolutely loved their stay with Nichole and Skylar. Zoey and Bruno have stayed with them a number of times since then, and whenever we get near their home, the pups' tails start wagging. Nichole and Skylar allow Z and B to live like they are at home at their house.

This was Henry's 2nd time with Nichole. She send picture updates throughout the weekend, which i love! I'm sure Henry had a great time. My mom picked him up and said it seemed like Henry didn't want to leave! It's comforting knowing he is getting great care with Nichole.

Tucker had a wonderful time with Nichole and Skylar! He was totally relaxed and happy when we got him back. We loved the regular updates and were able to really enjoy our vacation, knowing that he was in good hands.
Once again we were able to have a fabulous vacation knowing our Abbi was in the care of Nichole & Skylar. Thanks for taking such great care of her and for the great pictures/updates you sent. We will definitely use you again and again!
Nichole was such a pleasure to deal with. Her and Skylar did an amazing job watching my Goldendoodle puppy Louie. It went better than I ever could have imagined. She was very kind, professional, and courteous in all of my dealings with her. She gave me picture updates every day that I was gone as well. I got married the weekend that Nichole watched Louie and I did not have one single worry about him. I knew Louie was in great hands, even though I only met her one time. If I ever go out of town again, I would look them up in a heart beat. They were kind and loving and treated my puppy like he was their own!

Nichole and Skylar watched my dog Henry for 2 nights and were great! Nichole was very professional by asking me questions about Henry's routine. She also sent me a couple pictures during the weekend. When i picked up Henry, he seemed comfortable in their house. I'm sure he had a great time! I will definitely be using Nichole again in the future.

I just picked up Mojo from his last long vacation with Nichole. I have moved to DE and will miss Nichole a lot. I have not found another dogvacay.com sitter near my new home :(. If you need a sitter, Nichole is the BEST!
5 Stars! Nichole and Skylar are amazing dog sitters! We sprung a long reservation on them without much advance notice and they were nothing but accommodating and super helpful! They sent us photo updates throughout our trip and our dog always looked so relaxed and happy. When we picked him up, he was happy to see us of course, but I think he would have been ok staying with Nichole and Skylar! Looking forward to making another reservation sometime soon.

Nichole and Skylar were wonderful with our toy Maltese Dash. Dash takes a while to get used to places and this was his first time left alone. He seemed happy and they gave us adorable pictures. We hope to leave Dash with them on our next vacation.
Nichole and Skylar were excellent hosts for my scotty Maisy. As soon as I met them I could tell they were trustworthy and responsible. They asked lots of questions and took copious notes about Maisy's care. Maisy also immediately felt at home with them and they were not at all perturbed when she christened their rug! They truly enjoy caring for other dogs and take lots of photos of their guests. This was my first Dog Vacay experience and it could not have been better. I've already asked about their availability for my next trip. I highly recommend them!

Nichole and Skylar were great hosts. They even shared some photos of him during his stay. Ike seemed to enjoy his time and will definitely go back again
I knew from the minute I walked into Nichole and Skylar's home and they let her on their couch that Katie would be well loved and taken care of. I had no worries at all leaving Katie for the first time and hope to bring Katie back to visit with them soon.

Dutchess had an excellent stay as always!!
Nichole and Skylar were wonderful when I needed a last minute reservation. They took care of my 8 month old puppy, Anya, while my husband and I attended my sister's wedding. My husband dropped her off early that morning and was given a tour of the home. Luckily, Nichole and Skylar were located only a few minutes from the hotel and were even kind enough to drop Anya off at the end of the night. Anya came back happy and well cared for. We couldn't have asked for a better set of hosts for our sweet girl! Thanks and hope to work with you again in the future.

Our Abbi had a wonderful time staying with Nichole & Skylar. They are a very loving, nurturing couple and provided numerous emails with pictures of Abbi enjoying her staycation while we were away. I will definitely use their services again in the future. Thanks again!

Tucker loves Nichole and Skylar, and so do we! He was relaxed and happy when we picked him up, and they kept us posted throughout his stay on how he was doing. Skylar also took some awesome pictures of Tucker and made a Christmas card for us! This was such a win-win for everyone: cheaper than a kennel, he was happy, and we could actually relax knowing that Tucker was in good hands.

Dutchie had an excellent stay as always. It is extremely comforting to go away knowing that she is in such good hands!
Nichole and Skylar did a WONDERFUL job taking care of our dog, Louie. Louie is a large, crazy, anxious labrador. He can really be a handful. They welcomed him with open arms and treated him like he was one of the family. They gave him everything he needed to be happy: food, love, and exercise. When I dropped him off at their house, he was wild and anxious. When I picked him up a week later, he was calm, happy, and obviously well-taken care of. I will absolutely ask Nichole and Skylar to care for Louie again.

Dutchess absolutely enjoyed her stay with Nichole and Skylar. They were the perfect hosts and Dutchie is definitely looking forward to visiting again. They have a great house on a quiet street with a nice big yard. Dutch definitely loved the long walks and special attention that she got during her stay. It's obvious that they clearly love dogs and take care of them as their own. I have no hesitation whatsoever recommending them as hosts!

This was Dakota's second stay with Nichole and Skyler. They were attentive and caring to her needs. Receiving daily pictures is always a comfort, knowing she's ok.
Nichole and Skylar were great hosts--definitely 5 stars! They were very prepared when we arrived and spent a lot of time making sure that they had all the information that they needed to help Tucker have a great visit. They sent us text updates with a photos/video, which was very nice. When we picked him up, Tucker was relaxed and happy. We look forward to having Tucker vacay with them again!

Nichole and Skylar are very friendly. Winston seemed to be very comfortable with them, and from the pictures and text updates Nichole sent, both people and pooch enjoyed each other's company.This made our little vacation much more pleasant. It is wonderful to know there is a home away from home for Winston.

Nichole & Skylar were great with our two dogs! They made the entire process really easy, were very flexible with drop off and pick up times and sent us regular updates. They made our dogs feel very welcome, which helped them settle in quickly. We would highly recommend them, and will definitely use them again in the future!

We have since been back to Nichole a few more times, with longer and overnight stays. Oliver and Zoe stayed over during our Christmas break. We were happily surprised to see pictures of our babies and updates via text messaging. We are very pleased with the care and the dogs are happy to be going to Nichole's house.

I only cried once after I left for my week long trip. This is because of my daily updates with pictures (requested) on how my big guy was doing while with Nichole and Skylar. Bentley has some special needs and I am so nervous to ever leave him with anyone. From the first meet and greet I could tell of their genuine love of animals and natural care taker personalities. My trip had some snags which I needed an earlier drop off and also later pick up. They were happy to work with me on this. I am so glad I found DogVacay and this couple. I now look forward to future trips knowing Bentley is in good hands.

Thank you!
Crazy Dog mom : )

Mojo had an awesome time as always!
Nichole and Skyler were wonderful to Dakota. Since we were on vacation out of the country, Nichole's emails and photos were a huge comfort to us knowing Dakota was in great care. We highly recommend them.
Mojo had a fabulous time, as always. I'm very comfortable going on vacation now that I have found Nichole & Skylar!
Nichole & Skylar are the best!! Mojo is so happy I found them!
I cannot say enough about Nicole & Skylar! I am so happy that I found them. Mojo loves going there. This was his second time and he was excited to see them; made himself right at home. Nicole sent me a photo update, just to let me know he was doing great. I now make sure they are available before I book my next vacation. They are the best!

This was the first time I have used dogvacay.com and I am so happy I stumbled across this site. I love Nichole & Skylar and so does Mojo! He was excited to see them when I brought him over for his vacation and made himself right at home. Nichole emailed me the next day, with a photo, to let me know that Mojo had settled in. I have already booked Mojo's next few vacations with Nichole & Skylar to be sure I have a spot :).

Oliver and Zoe, our two rambunctious dogs, were greeted with care and attention during the first stay. We had specific instructions for walking our dogs (still going through leash training) and they did not seem to mind using the specific collars I brought. The first visit was not an overnight stay so I can't comment on that however next time we will be booking overnight stays.

Very friendly, confident, efficient, knowledgeable and accommodative. It was a pleasure not to worry while I was away and even received a picture text message of Reilly acting quite at home in Nichole's and Skylar's home.
