About Nic

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Pet sitting since 1998…in your home, short-term, long-term, in town or out. Excellent references, including clients I’ve worked with for over 10 years.

A big perk using my services is that I don’t have a regular 9-to-5 job so I’m around most all the time, good company for your animals & also added security for your property.

Plus, I’m fit & active, happy to walk dogs and even take them hiking in the mountains or swimming in area lakes/rivers.

PRICES My rate is $40/night depending on the situation, location, timeframe, etc. I’m also available to drop-in & check on pets, and for dog-walking. I'm happy to "sit" for CATS too!


BEN/Beagle: “My beagle, Ben, spent the day with Nic, including a hike on the 4-mile Borrega Triangle Trail. Ben came to me after a traumatic early life & he’s now very attached. The best compliment I can give Nic is when I picked Ben up, he wagged his tail, sniffed me & went back out on the balcony to sit in the sun. Obviously, he loved Nic & felt totally comfortable with her.” -Tina-

LULU/Himalayan: “Lulu loves when Nic is over. She makes up games & keeps her purr-fectly entertained. I’ve bought so many toys, yet Lulu only likes the ones Nic creates from everyday household items. Lulu follows Nic everywhere because she is so interactive with her. I couldn’t ask for a better pet sitter, such peace of mind when I’m away.” -Nicole-

SMILLA/White Shepard: “Nic saved my life (& Smilla’s) when I sprained my ankle & couldn’t exercise for months. Even though she was old, Smilla was active & always excited when Nic came over for their 20-minute outings. Also, I trusted Nic to stay at the house, confident Smilla would be well taken care of when I traveled…& she’d get to chase balls, her favorite thing. I’m so grateful Nic came into our lives. I highly recommend her.” -Marjie-

SQUEAKY/Cat: “Nic took great care of my two elderly cats, feeding, giving a pill, AND clearing away a fine-feathered present one had oh-so-carefully wiggled through the cat door. Squeaky & Six didn’t seem to miss me at all. Nic texted great photos of them outside enjoying the sunshine.” -Karen-

NOVA/Golden Retriever: “I whole-heartedly recommend Nic for house & dog-sitting. Nova loves her & hardly seems to notice I’ve been gone! Nic takes her hiking, to the dog park & spends lots of time with her. And, the house is in great shape when I return. I have hired Nic 2x during long vacations with no worries about the pup or house while I am away.” -Kris-
