My name is Nicky and I am a Health and Wellness professional working in the Taylors, SC area. 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.
I am in grad school full-time and working part-time which leaves me limited to weekend availability for dog care services so I can ensure I provide quality care. I am open to having a dog dropped off on a Thurs evening if needed, so please contact me if that is your request.
I do require that your dog stay in a crate when I am away from my house (or I am willing to let your dog stay outside in my fenced-in backyard, IF your dog is used to that setup at your home). On the weekends 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 about 7-8 hrs early morning-afternoon, but I can provide 1-2 bathroom breaks as needed (I work only 10 min away), and I ensure the dogs get good exercise once I get home.
I have experience caring for cats, birds, hamsters, ferrets and fish, and am happy to care for any of your animals while you're gone!
I would love to provide a caring home for your pet(s) while you're away. 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'm also available to go to your home to care for you pet(s) during the day and/or evening (sorry, I cannot stay at your house for overnight care though due to my own personal dog). If you'll be gone just for the day, I'm available to provide daycare as well.
