About Nicole & Jim

22 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
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.

Nicole and Jim were absolutely amazing. Our dogs had a blast there. I know because of all the pictures I received and updates. If I ever need my four legged family looked after again I'll definitely be using them again. I'll never go anywhere else four legged family looked after again I'll definitely be using them again. I'll never go anywhere else while I'm here in Virginia.

Nicole & Jim take good care of my dog Teddy, and send plenty of picture updates to let me know how he is doing. I trust leaving my dog with them because I know he'll be well taken care of.
If I could give Nicole & Jim 6 stars, I would! They were such a kind family, meeting us before hand to introduce Murphy to their family. They have a big, fenced yard which Murphy could run and play to his heart's content. Throughout Murphy's stay, big, fenced yard which Murphy could run and play to his heart's content. Throughout Murphy's stay, Nicole was sending pictures of him having a great time--running, cuddled up, chewing bones, just a happy pup. Thank you to this family for a great DogVacay experience!
