About Nichole

Outside our dogs get to roam freely among the grass and trees on a fenced one-acre lot. Inside our dogs have 2,700 sq. ft to run around and many comfy, cozy spots to relax. Our days include playing around in the yard with my preschooler, walks in the neighborhood, and trips to the huge dogpark up the street. Bailey and Rylee are friendly dog hosts who gladly share their toys and treats. We would love to have company for a short visit or an extended stay.

nichole is great love her and her home :)
Nicole is great. Tucker is a bashful dog but he had a good time while staying with Nicole. It is nice knowing that your pets are in good hands.
Gladys had a wonderful time as usual. Nichole treats her like her own and gives her such special care. Sometimes I think Gladys doesn't want to return home.
Nichole took care of our Reni like he was her own. This is the third time he's stayed with Nichole for a week or more.

He was happy and well cared for during our trip. We appreciate this!

Thank you Nichole. When we travel again, we will be sure to contact you.
As always Gladys had the best time and not sure she even wanted to come home. Nichole treats her like one of the family and so grateful to have her in our lives. We recommended highly! Thanks Nichole!
Clifford's stay at Nichole's place was fantastic. He has so much fun playing with other dogs and there were friends there for him. Nichole and her family always keeps Clifford engaged in outdoor as well as indoors activities. He is a cuddler and they are able to give him lots of time for that too. This is a wonderful place for your pet. I never have any worries while he is there. I receive pictures of him during his stay as well.
Gladys totally enjoyed her stay and we received several pictures during her stay. This is her second stay and we plan to use again later this month.
Gladys had a great time. They even took her on a field trip to Petco! Looking forward to using Nicole again soon. Tried to click the 5 star but not sure it worked! Definitely a 5!
Thank you.
Tucker loved his time at Nichole's house. He loved her enormous, secure back yard. Very clean and lots of green grass. The backyard is accessible all day. Nichole is sweet. Very competent and accommodating. You can tell that her little boy just loves all the dogs that come through there.
Will definitely book again and highly recommend. Thank you so much!
Our 4th time using Nichole. Everything was great as always. I won't use anyone else. We book our vacations around her avaliablity. Todd and zoey have a great time.
Jake had a great time with trips to the lake, walks with Nichole and playtime with the family. There was even a dogproof wading pool in the backyard that Jake could get into on hot days.
My two Labradors were well cared for and Nichole was an absolute delightful host. She sent me a text with two photos of my dogs having a terrific time in the lovely spacious backyard. They played in the water and laid in the kiddie pool, a Labs dream Vacay! Nichole was very prompt answering my initial inquiry and my emails and texts. She made me feel very confident about leaving my dogs with her. This was my first Dog Vacay experience and it was a total two paws up! I would highly recommend Nichole.
Lovely, dog-friendly home with a great outdoor space for doggie to romp. Nicole was great and the family atmosphere helped our pooch to feel comfortable and not stressed.
Our pups have stayed with Nichole and family twice now. We feel so safe leaving them with her! She sends great photo updates. The house gives us no fear of our younger dog getting into things and is calm enough for our senior dog. They have a great backyard for exercise and play! We can't say enough good thing about Nichole and her family.
Nicole was amazing! The house and yard is like a Disneyland for dogs! I felt like she took extra special care of our older dog, but when I saw her with other clients dogs, they received that same level of care as well! I received regular text message updates and pictures of Ruby, and I could see she was very happy too! When I know that our family dog is being well cared for, safe and loved, it makes our vacation more relaxing too. Thank you Nicole, I will be booking more vacations with you soon!
I highly recommend Nichole. She provided the best home-away-from-home experience for our beloved Renoir. She understands dogs, and has a dog-friendly home and big yard. Her little boy is also wonderful with dogs and they love him. Next time we go on vacation we will definitely use Nichole.

She's in demand though, so book early! Thanks!
George said he missed us but had a great time with Nicole, Carson and the pack. Huge nice fenced yard. Wow, don't know how she keeps her house so clean!
Nichole was absolutely great watching our little guy for a week. He was well loved and got lots of exercise. Would recommend her to anyone looking in the area!
Clifford had a wonderful time at Nichole's dog b'n'b. He had lots of cuddle time, play time and a large yard to play in as well. Thanks to Nichole and family. He's looking forward to another stay with you. I even got a picture of Clifford while I was away, showing how happy he was.
Nichole was great her house was clean and organized. The yard was huge and completely fenced in and trees provided shade for hot days. Our dog Zoey had a great time and we loved waking up every morning to an email with photos of our dog and an update. Nichole's little boy (I never asked his name :( ) was great with all the dogs and was very sweet and happy to play and cuddle with Zoey. We will be using Nichole's services again with no question. Thank you
We were so pleased to find a host like Nichole to take care of our high spirited and active golden retriever while we were on vacation for a week.

She was absolutely the best host. Our dog Renoir got lots of exercise, was groomed and kept clean, and had lots of attention while we were gone.

She took care of him like he was her own, and kept us updated with pics and updates.

I highly recommend Nichole!

Nichole was great. I got email and picture updates during the week when Cosmo was staying there. I know he had a great time because he was dead tired when he got home. She was awesome from the first meet and greet, to the day trial we did, to the stay and all follow through. Highly recommend her. Will use her again.
Nicole and her family took great care of My Hannah. Hannah is 15, hard of hearing and cannot see very well. Being so dear to me, I'm already overprotective and nervous about leaving her. Nicole reassured me that all is well by sending me pictures of Hannah. From lounging on the couch to walking in the park. Her stay went well. I highly recommend her dog sitting/border service and plan on using it again. Thanks Nicole!!
This is the first time Dakota has been away from home and me and I am so happy she was so well cared for. She is going to miss the boys and Nicole and her family. I definitely will take Dakota back the next time I need to be away from home.
Nicole and her family are great. Our dogs seemed to have a great time with them. We will be using them again soon. 5 stars
Nicole and her family were wonderful with our 2 boxers!!!! Love, exercise, and safety were what we were concerned with, and all were exceeded by them!!! Dogs were very happy and so were we. Photos and texts were very much appreciated----we can recommend Nicole's care of dogs with no reservations in the least!
Our dog was a very happy dog! Nichole sent a picture of our pup by text message on Saturday, we could see by the look (and ball in her mouth) that our dog was being well cared for. Nichole was wonderful, flexible and provided a great experience for us. We will definitely use her service again!
Another great stay, we ran REALLY late picking up our dog, but they were more than accommodating!
Nicole and her family are great! They have the perfect house for dog sitting with a fenced back yard and hard surfaces floors. They are definitely dog people, you don't have to worry about if your dog mis behaves or has an accident, they are very understanding and just love your dog for who he/she is. We will definitely use them again!
