About Nicole & Jim

22 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Update: we now have a beautiful 6 foot privacy fence surrounding the entire yard.

Hi there and welcome to Doggy Shangri-La. A beautiful home away from home for your pup. Where your dog can roam freely from room to room. Curling up in front of the fireplace on a cold winters night or stretched out under a shady tree on a lazy summer day. If your pup feels like they just need a minute to themselves thats not a problem we have a private suite where they can relax on a plush dog bed with a peanut butter Kong. We also have a very large yard shaded by white oak trees making the temperature in the back yard much lower then in the front. Where your pup will find bowls of filtered ice water constantly put out for those hot summer months. This mecca of a yard is littered with bones, jolly balls, frisbees, tennis balls and of course lots sticks.
My husband and I have been caring for dogs for over 20 years. We love all breeds pure or mix alike. We also have been volunteering for a local rescue for German Shepherds for over a year now. We have fostered 32 dogs in total to date. We have experience with stepration anxiety, post op, toy aggression, and dog aggression. We have three pups ourselves two German Shepards and a Great Dane who love to meet and play with new friends.

I could tell through the photos Nicole and Jim sent that they were excellent hosts who worked hard to make sure that my dog was happy and received a lot of attention. You could see how my shy dog slowly opened up more each day.

My dog was calm, clean, relaxed and happy when I picked her up. I will definitely come back to this host for future bookings! Thank you for such a great stay!

Nicole & Jim were awesome. They had my 9 month old lab for two weeks while I was on a business trip and took great care of her. I received tons of pictures daily, and Nicole always answered any questions I had within a few minutes. I would definitely board with them again.
