About Nellie

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello Mommies & Daddies, my name is Nellie and I am a animal FANATIC! I am currently a college student attending TSU and live right outside the medical district. Growing up I've always had animals in my home. I've had cats, dogs, hamsters, guinea pigs, snakes, rabbits and a rooster. I bet you weren't expecting to see a rooster! However, for the past couple of months, Ive been volunteering for the Houston Humane Society to be a dog walker and love it! I am very responsible and take the trust of my clients very seriously. A typical day spent with dogs in my care will get a early morning walk threw the Hermann park. Later in the evening I would take them on another walk. Then if not taken to the dog park, I like to give them a late night walk around my apartment complex. I like to take the dogs at least 4x's a week to the dog park (Johnny Steele Dog Park). Im a very affectionate & active person, so I'll guarantee your pet will feel more than loved and never bored! I have a roommate/best friend, who is also very pet friendly. My home is free roam and pet friendly. Although my apartment complex only allow’s me to have small sized animals , I’ll be more than happy to travel to care for your BIG BUNDLE OF JOY! Cant wait to hear from you

Nellie went way beyond the norm to make our pup comfortable and feel at home !
Nellie, was great! She sent lots of updates / videos of my pup and took excellent care of her. so I always knew that Nina was doing well and happy. :)She was also very accommodating with my schedule, which was a last minute trip.

Thanks again for a lovely experience.
Nellie was great! Very flexible and easy to book and arrange drop off/pick up. Sent me lots of updates! More importantly, my pup was so chill when I picked him up, I know he had a great time!
Sorry for the late comment.But there is something wrong with my dogvacay app. Wonton always has great fun with Nellie. That's why I'll come to Nellie again and again without hesitation!
GREAT Experience!!!!!! Nellie was just AWESOME!!! She kept me updated several times daily with pictures of our Yorkie Zoey!! She was nice and very professional!! Responded quickly with any questions or concerns I had. We were at ease on vacation knowing our dog Zoey was in Great Hands!!! I definitely will be using her again and Highly Recommend her!!!! Very Pleased!!! Thanks Nellie for treating our Zoey as your own!!! We really appreciate it!!!-The Walkers
Nellie was just perfect! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Nellie. I am so happy I found her, she has been a blessing in our life!!!! She kept me post with videos, pics and news about Amigo twice a day or even more, she answered back my texts immediately and she is always 100% willing to help and solve any inconvenience if there is one! She is just the best Nanny ever, very committed with her job and her responsibilities. She treated Amigo as part of her family and as her own dog too. Her apartment is beautiful and neat, and has a back yard where the dogs can go outside and enjoy the day. I have no doubt I will definitely ask Nellie again to take care of Amigo every time I need to go out of town! Just love her!!!
My puppy gravitated to Nellie from the second they met! I was immediately at ease with her and was grateful she could stay in my home so my pet would be more comfortable. She is communicative (texts and updates), helpful (I couldn't figure out the site), and a quality sitter and person. I'm so glad my husband, puppy and I have found her!
Nellie was EXTREMELY flexible and accommodating. She took my reservation 30 minute after I requested/contact her! She has an adorable pug who is just as friendly as she is. I can tell my dog had a GREAT time at Nellie's. I look forward to using her again in the future.
Nellie is so great! She accepted my request in a minute! And come to my place picking Wonton up in ten minutes when I said I had a flight that night. Really do me big help! ! And most important thing is that she takes good care of Wonton. Wonton had a wonderful weekend with her. She even got a lovely bed for Wonton to lay on. She kept sending me videos and pictures of Wonton every day, which is so sweet. I want to recommend her to all dog parents!
Nellie was an excellent host for our dog Trellis. I look forward to her looking after our little guy on multiple occasions.
My husband and I left town over Labor Day Weekend. Nellie was able to do a meet and greet and then helped me reserve all before we needed to leave in such a short time span!

Our puppy is just a couple months old and I was hesitant leaving him with just anybody while we were gone but Nellie was very accommodating and our puppy just gravitated toward her as soon as we met. She also sent me updates (text messages and videos) on a schedule that we agreed upon. Overall, Nellie was excellent with our little pup and we will be using her again!
Nellie was absolutely amazing to work with. She was very accommodating, even after we had a last minute drop off change. She sent me multiple video updates daily, and Dolores looked so happy in them. For a crazy dog mom like me, she really made this an easy and stress free experience. We will only use Nellie for Dolores' vacays from now on. Thanks so much!
Nellie was the best. Whenever I need a sitter she is the one. Friendly polite and Excellance with our dig Cooper.
Nellie was great, her availability and kind personality made my. Pup feel safe until I got back. She sent me updates and videos of my pup through out the stay and was flexible on the day I wanted to pick him up. Great sitter.
