About Nikki

About Me:

Make sure you ask for a custom quote as we offer specials on weekly walks and weekly sleep overs.

I grew up in an animal environment with 5 dogs, a cat and a bird. My parents bred English bulldogs from the time I was a small child to a teenager. I worked as a vet assistance in my 20's where I learned to administer medicine orally and under the skin. I also learned the signs and symptoms of when an animal is sick. Then I moved on to manage a non-profit No Kill Dalmatian rescue where I cared for 200 plus dogs. From the time they woke up to the time they fell asleep, 7 days a week, I was their to take care of them. Rest-assure if your pet stays with me he or she will be taken care of and treated as if he or she is in a 5 star resort.

I now have my pooch, Lucky, who is 12 years old and a Lab Mix. He is definitely my little buddy. I only feed Lucky organic foods and filtered water. I will do anything it takes to keep him healthy and give him a better quality of life. I will treat your kids the same love and compassion. Lucky goes on 4 walks per day, where your buddy will join. The first walk is at 7:30AM, the second is between 12-1PM, the third is between 5-6pm, and the last walk at 10PM, right before bed. We have a huge park a few blocks away where we can all enjoy a nice long walk.

Where your Dog will Staying:

I live in a secure, dog-friendly apartment in Guttenberg, NJ. The building is modern, well-maintained, and has an elevator. No pesky stairs for your little ones. I have a 2 Bedroom Apartment with all hardwood floors and central air conditioning (Non-Smoking Home). Plenty of bedding and pillows. I keep my apartment very clean, as well as, my dog. I always have on hand wipes for paws and lots of love.

I am centrally located just off of Blvd. East for easy drop off on your commute or I can pick up your pup.

What your dog can expect:

-Fun Time with me and Lucky
-Four Walks per day (additional walks available for a fee)
-Daily Updates via Test Message or Email
-Follow your dietary guidelines for your dog
- Playtime
-Cage Free Environment, unless provided by the parent

I only take 2 dogs at any given time to ensure each pet gets all the one on one attention they need. If your dog requires any meds, special diet or meal preparations this is all included with your pups stay. Because I can give 24/7 attention, I am very diligent when it comes to the responsibility (feeding times, medicine times, playing time, etc) of taking care of your pup. I also keep the parents updated daily on their activities via photo, videos, text messages and emails. You can view it as an all inclusive resort for your pup.

Boarding and Daycare Requirements:

Once again JJ had a great stay. I think i've found JJ's home away from home! Lucky and JJ get on so well, it's nice to know she has another dog to play with. Thank You Nikki!!!!
I can't say enough great things about Nikki! My dog had a great vacay. Nikki gave me updates and pics so I always knew how JJ was doing. JJ got to go on 4 walks a day and had tons of love and attention. I never had to worry about her the entire weekend I was away, which was a huge relief! We are new to area and I am so happy I found dogvacay and Nikki
JJ even got a bag of dog biscuits to go home with.
Highly recommend!
Thank You Nikki
Kate & JJ
