My name is Nicky and I am a Health and Wellness professional working in the Taylors, SC area. I am in grad school full-time and working part-time which leaves me limited to weekend availability (Fri-Sun; Mon afternoon pick-up upon request) for dog care services to ensure I provide quality care. For now, I only accept 1 dog at a time for overnight boarding, and up to 2 dogs for daycare.
I have one dog of my own, a Siberian husky. I rescued her from a husky rescue in Aug 2015. Prior to her, I had another female husky for 10 years. I grew up with dogs, and enjoy being around them. I have always had larger breed dogs, sometimes two or more in the house at a time. I am comfortable with walking 2 dogs at a time, and will go on multiple walks if needed to make sure everyone gets their exercise. I believe in daily walks and exercise time, using high quality food (I currently use Taste of the Wild), and providing great care for any animal entrusted to me. My house has a good-sized fenced in backyard that provides lots of room to run.
On the weekends (Sat-Sun) when I am watching a dog, I typically am not away from my home much (without taking the dogs with me) and often let the dogs play outside the majority of the day if the weather is acceptable. I do work on Fridays, typically around 5-6 hrs from early morning-afternoon, but I can provide 1 bathroom break during that time if needed, and I ensure the dogs get exercise once I get home. When I am away from my home, I do not leave multiple dogs out and about unsupervised. I have one area in my home I can section off to separate 2 dogs. Please be aware I have a crate that I will use if needed based on the level of training/manners of your dog, i.e. if I do not feel comfortable leaving your dog free in a section of my house, then I will put your dog in the crate. This is both for the protection of your dog and protection of my house from damage.
I am willing to send you updates by text or email if you request it, and you are always welcome to contact me if you want to check in on your pet. I also provide visits to your house, up to 3 per day Fri-Sun (within 10 miles), if you would prefer for your dog to stay at your home while you're away. If you'll be gone just for the day, I'm available to provide daycare as well for up to 2 dogs.
