About Nina

My home has instant access to a fully enclosed, level backyard including grassy areas and a sunny deck. I work from home so my exceedingly friendly, pampered pup and vacationing dogs are always with me. We walk to the nearby off-leash dog park at least once a day. Our dog guests often sleep in our bed and are showered with attention and affection.

We have an incredibly tolerant feline who has managed to befriend dogs who have never been around cats before. However, we prefer small and small/medium dogs for this reason.

Awesomely awesome!
Nina was great! She had a nice spacious and relaxing yard that Tank could sunbathe in, and he could also come and go inside as he pleased.
There was another dog, some cats around (which he learned to just leave them be).

He was nice and tired when I came to pick him up - which is a sign of a great visit! I think he had a great time!
This was my first time I had my dog Maxi boarded at Nina's home while going on vacation and I just want to let you know that Nina is the best and with her dog Biscuit she and Maxi had a great time. She sends me text messages each day and a video of Maxi and Biscuit playing - so cute! This seems a small gesture but it makes all the difference knowing that your dog is doing great and well taken care of. What a relief going on vacation and not worrying about it and just having fun. I will continue to board my dog with Nina. Thank you Nina and Biscuit!
Nina is AMAZING. We absolutely LOVE her. Our dog has separation anxiety and she was so thoughtful and went above and beyond to help him adjust to staying in her home.

She stayed in regular e-mail communication and updated us with photos and videos of our dog playing with her adorable dog and cat.
Nina is so warm and caring, I would leave our dog there any time we were away. She is great!!!!!
Our golden Zoe's experience and our own was truly "paw some"! Everybody liked one another immensely, and Zoe even seemed reluctant to leave! She had lots of walks, head rubs, cuddling, and attention.Nina was wonderful in terms of answering our nervous emails while we were away, and sent a photo of our happy dog. I would definitely leave Zoe with Nina again! Thank you, Nina!
Nina took wonderful care of my little Shelly. She was loved like one of the family. Nina even bathed her. She came home better looking than when she left home. I also received pictures of Shelly while I was on vacation. I highly recommend Nina to anyone who needs great loving care of their family pooch.
Awesome! Molly is usually pretty anxious during and after I'm away on travel, but with Nina I picked her up and she was so relaxed, comfortable, and happy that she got home licked my ankle and passed out. Which means that she was excellently taken care of!!
Nina loves pets and I felt completely at ease leaving my baby Stella with her. I think Stella must have had a great time since she was super tired when we got home.
Nina was an excellent host. My wife and I went home over the holidays and Nina kept our dog Blitz for a week. She walked Blitz every day and sent over text messages and some pictures throughout the week. Blitz got along well with Nina's dog Biscuit as well. Any time we need for Blitz to stay with someone - we will go with Nina. We HIGHLY recommend her.
We had a great experience with Nina. This was the first time I left our mini golden doodle, strudel with someone I didn't know and I was so relieved to feel like Nina would be giving strudel all the love and attention. They bonded right away and I was able to enjoy my vacation. I would choose Nina again for sure.
Nina was just great with Polaris. She was so good Polaris bonded with her. She sent me pictures and texts, letting me know how Polaris was getting along. This was a wonderful experience for Polaris and for me. I won't ever consider a regular kennel again and I would definitely hope Nina was available when I need her.
Somehow she got one of my dogs, who dislikes cats, to become best friends with hers! We are floored!! We will definitely use Nina again.
