About Nyssa

13 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi all! I have 13 years experience caring for dogs of most all sizes, ages, and temperaments and my late, dear jack russell/beagle for 17 wonderful years. I have 6 years experience fostering and volunteering with my hometown SPCA and have cared for puppies, adults, and senior dogs. I also have great success housebreaking and leash training adult dogs. Also ask me about training, baths, and nail clipping! I do it all!

With me, your dog will go on all sorts of (safe) adventures in Downtown Richmond! I am an avid runner, so if your dog is physically able we can run all over the place!

I have raised my family cat to the ripe old age of 21 and also fostered many cats and kitten litters over the years if you are interested in having me watch your cat.

I love all dog breeds! However, if you do have a dog that is a Pitbull, American Staffordshire Terrier, Chow Chow, or dog that is 50-80 lbs (or over) I do ask that you provide a harness for them as they tend to be very powerful breeds and I want to ensure the safety of your pet during their time with me. Please contact me if you are interested.

This was our first time letting a "stranger" watch our 10-month-old puppy. Nyssa did an incredible job watching Stella! She updated us multiple times throughout the day with videos and photos and she always responded promptly to our questions. We will definitely use Nyssa the next time we need a dog sitter.

Our dog stayed with Nyssa over a long weekend and seemed to have a great time! She sent us several photos during his stay to keep us informed about how he was doing. We already plan to book with Nyssa again soon!
Nyssa was great with my dogs! Safe and well taken care of. Would use her service again!
Nyssa kept Bandit overnight and I could definitely tell he had a wonderful time. Usually he whines for 30 mins after picking him up from a kennel (as if he's trying to tell me what a horrible time he had). When I picked him up from Nyssa he was happy and not a whimper! She was very accommodating to my schedule and I would definitely take Bandit there again.

Nyssa took great care of my dog Newton. He was returned to me happy and healthy. I received pictures and updates on how he was doing. Thank you!!
Buddy had a great stay as far as I can tell. Thank you!
Nyssa took great care of Leo for 3 days. Very flexible and she sent us pics and videos.
Nyssa was great! She sent me updates and Sammy had a great time. She was a life saver during the moving process!
