My fiancé and I have been caring for dogs for over 20 years. We love dogs. They have always been part of our lives. Our experience spans from raising dogs from puppies, to pet & house sitting, to dog grooming.

Cuddles, our two year old Catahoula, would love the company of your fury friend. Our home is pet friendly and will be under 24/7 supervision as I work from home. Cuddles loves to go for walks, play at the nearby dog parks and in her own backyard. However, we are flexible in catering to your dog’s needs so he/she feels right at home. We can’t wait to meet you and your fury friend!

If you are a first time guest with us, a meet-n-greet is required prior to booking a reservation, however, we are not accepting new/first time clients at this time.

Nicole and her pack are absolutely wonderful! They are the best thing to happen to our little family. Thanks for all you do for us.
Nicole is awesome! Sadie had such a great time again and even went home with some homemade dog treats which she loved. I feel very comfortable leaving my dog with Nicole and love to see the photos of the dogs playing and looking happy!
Lucy and Zoey did outstanding and had a good time with Nicole. She was so caring and loving to my dogs and treated them as if they were her own. She kept in touch, sent me pictures every day of them, and let me know how their day went. Some problem areas with Lucy has really improved during her stay. I will definitely be using Nicole again because I never worried while I was gone and I always worry when I leave them with someone else. So that speaks volumes!
Once again Sadie enjoyed her stay with Nicole. She takes awesome pictures of the dogs playing. I am so glad we found her!
Finding Nicole was the best thing for our Gus. He absolutely LOVES visiting Cuddles and his family.

Nicole always goes ABOVE and BEYOND! She even made Gus a 2nd birthday party! I am glad to know I am not the only one who loves to celebrate our little Gus. Thanks for all you do for our pack!
Nicole did a fantastic job. She connected with my dogs and had no difficulty whatsoever in providing attention and care while I was out of town. If you live in the Mesquite/E Dallas area, I would recommend contacting Nicole.
Sadie really enjoyed her stay at Nicole's. I loved seeing all of the great pictures she took over the weekend. I will definitely use her again. This was so much better than traditional boarding. Knowing that my dog had the freedom to run around and play and stay with people who truly enjoy dogs put me at ease while I was away. Nicole was very responsive and answered all of my questions and the pricing is great. Thanks again for allowing Sadie to stay :)
Nicole, Victor and Cuddles are always so awesome! Zoey and Daisy love staying there. They get so excited when we pull up. I get an update with photos every day and I never worry about my fur kids when they are with Nicole. I don't even think they were ready to come home! Thanks again Nicole, you're the best!
As always, Nicole and Victor do an amazing job. She went above and beyond in making my Choco feel welcome, making his special treats and a special bed for him. I completely trust them with my baby!
This was our dog's second vacation with Nicole. It was a wonderful experience and he came home happier than when he left. Trust my dog with her 100%!
The pups were so excited when they pulled up to see Cuddles and Nicole. She always rakes great care of them, sends me wonderful pictures, and they have a great time! Nicole is SO PAWSOME!
Nicole took very good care of our dogs! We felt very comfortable after our meet and greet with Nicole and her fiance and saw where our dogs would be spending their time. We got daily pictures of smiling and playing dogs! Money well spent!
I think my dogs were very happy and well cared for. I got pictures every day. Nicole did a great job,and took them for a walk which is their favorite thing!
Nicole always does such an excellent job with Daisy and Zoey. We feel so at ease when she takes care of our babies. They always come home tired and relaxed from playing with Cuddles. I highly recommend Nicole, she is great!
Nicole always takes such care with our Boone. She is wonderful and amazing. I trust her completely and appreciate the pictures she sends of Boone while he's with her. I couldn't be more pleased with the service and kindness given to Boone by Nicole.
Nicole was great with our dog! She had a great time with Cuddles and came home very happy. Nicole was very responsive setting up the meet n greet and all with messages. I also liked that she sent pictures and a recap at the end of the day. The pictures were so awesome we printed and framed a few! I will always choose to bring our dog to Nicole.
Nicole is in one word AWESOME!!!! She is in a class by herself. She took wonderful care of our sweet boy. Our bulldog is our baby and we are very picky about leaving him with anyone. I felt completely comfortable immediately when we met Nicole that she would take great care of our Oliver - and she did. And, she is also a great photographer and sent us the sweetest pictures every day. I can't say enough good things about the experience. We are so thankful to have found Nicole!!
Nicole did such a great job making sure our dog had a good time, as well as making us feel good about leaving our dog with a sitter. I was afraid he wouldn't want to come back home with us because he looked like he was having so much fun! That's another thing, Nicole has a real talent for taking amazing pictures of the dogs having fun. She was kind, very responsive and accommodating. At the last minute, my cousin wanted to drop off his dog with her as well, and she gladly took both of them in. Those two dogs together love to play and are really rowdy with each other, but she did a great job with both of them. I will first seek out Nicole anytime we need a sitter for Marley!
Nicole and Victor are great with my Choco! I can see how much he enjoys his time with them. And I love how he has learned to socialize with other dogs while with them. They do an excellent job!
My puppies enjoyed the weekend, they got to spend at Nicole's home. She was very understanding when my times keep changing because of everything going wrong when I needed to drop the girls off and pick them up. I felt truly comfortable leaving my girls for the weekend. I saw the updates she has done for other puppies that stayed at her home and could tell my girls were going to be in good hands. I know for sure when I need a puppy sitter I will be calling on Nicole again.
This is our second time we leave our fur baby with Nicole and we were once again pleased with her patience and caring nature she demonstrates towards Boone! We couldn't be happier and have peace of mind while we are away. I'm so fortunate to have found her...
This was the first time leaving my dog alone for the weekend and I was a little worried but Nicole made the process extremely easy for our family. She took amazing photos of our dog throughout the weekend to keep us informed. Our dog was in excellent condition when I picked him up and was definitely happy with his vacation.
Nicole and Victor rock! I had a family emergency come up, and they were able to work me in last minute. That was so appreciated, as I needed to be there for my family. And they take such wonderful care of my dog - they treat him as their own. It gives me peace of mind to know that he is so well cared for.
Our dogs had a great time. Nicole always takes lots of pictures and sends to us and puts on Facebook. She takes such good care of our pups and we don't worry about them while we are away. its such a great feeling.
I forgot to add that she again made home made doggie treats with his favorite - carrots! I would highly recommend you leave your dogs with them!
Nicole and Victor are fabulous with my dog. He was so excited to go, as he loves them and playing with their dog, Cuddles. I know he has a wonderful time, and the pictures she takes are amazing. They are pics you'll want to save! I picked him up and he's tired after all that playing!
We spent our vacation with the peace of mind that Riley was having a better time than us because Nicole took more pictures of him in five days than I have in six months! And awesome pictures, some I want framed. Our puppy came home behaving better than he did when we dropped him off. It is obvious that Nicole and Victor took amazing care of our dog, as if he was their own. Absolutely the best dog sitter ever!
I'm so glad that I opted to go with Nicole. She kept me updated on Boone daily through pictures and texts. Her doggie, Cuddles and other companion, Riley were great company for Boone. I was very happy with the care administered and I'm very happy that she opened her home and welcomed our dog into her family. Thank you so much, Nicole!!!
This was Choco's second visit here. Nicole again was amazing with him. She even made him homemade doggie treats using his favorite - carrots! Choco loved playing with Cuddles, and was so happy. She gets great pictures of the dogs every day. You get to see all the fun things they are doing. I will happily recommend her to friends who need a place for their dog babies.
Nicole is amazing. We left here with two dogs that had many challenges and she was fantastic with them. It gave us such peace of mind knowing our dogs were in good hands while we were away. I can't imagine leaving them in some of the other boarding solutions we looked into (depressing!) Do not hesitate to use her--you and your pet(s) will NOT be sorry.
This was my first experience at DogVacay and it was wonderful! Nicole emailed me pictures of my pups playing and posted even more on Facebook. It was so nice to be able to "see" them while I was gone. It was obvious they were having a great time.

I would highly recommend Nicole to anyone. I felt very comfortable with her after our meet and greet. My dogs and her dog got along fabulously and I didn't worry at all while I was gone. The dogs were happy and relaxed when we picked them up.

This was a great experience for us and our pups. We will definitely use Nicole every time we travel from now on.
Nicole was wonderful with Choco! He is a senior dog, but played like a puppy in his time there. She posted great pics daily, and I could see how happy he was. He came home tired from all his play, and has slept well! They'll do great with your dog.
Nicole was great; was available for us last minute. We really appreciated how accommodating and communicative she was! She sent us pics of our pup every day. Thanks!
My dog Jessie is an 8 month old Aussiepoo. She loves going to Nicole's place. Jessie is great buddies with Cuddles and they play non stop. Nicole is amazing, she bakes dog cookies for birthday parties and Thanksgiving, she walks the dogs several times a day and she truly loves dogs. Nicole sends daily updates and photos. We are very protective pet owners and we HIGHLY recommend Nicole for overnight stays. As soon as you arrive and meet Nicole you know you dog will be very well taken care of. AMAZING!!
It's a great experience for us and Equis for finding a host first time from dogvacay. Nicole is reliable and taking good care of Equis. We appreciate Nicole and Dogvacay made our vacation feel easy in mind.
Nicole is responsible, very easy to communicate with, and good at taking care of dogs. Equis very enjoyed the weekend with Cuddles and other dog friends. I would definitely board with her again in a heartbeat and highly recommend her :)
They were amazing! Appa had a blessed with their dog Cuttles, which I know because they sent us pictures everyday. I will definitely leave Appa again with them :D
