About Nikki

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm glad you found your way to our page! Let me tell you a little about ourselves: Together we have a 5-year-old miniature dachshund named Lucy and a 2-year-old golden doodle named Montana, both of whom we love to pieces! We live in a house with a fenced-in backyard where our pups enjoy chasing squirrels, barking at birds, and digging holes (despite their moms telling them not to). My wife and I both work 9-5 jobs, but at least one of us is able to come home during lunch every day to let the dogs out, play with them, feed them, or take care of any necessary day-time needs. We've been dog sitting for a number of years now, and we would absolutely love the chance to take care of your dog(s) when you are not able to!

Nikki, Meredith, Montana, and Lucy are the sweetest family. Immediately at our meet and greet I knew Anakin would be in good hands. I received pictures on a regular basis during Anakin's visit and all the dogs seemed like they were having a great time. Anakin came home well taken care of and tired, which I appreciated after a long work trip. I already have my next dogvacay booked. I highly recommend Nikki and Meredith for sure!

This was our first time leaving our dog Joni with a sitter and it was a great first experience! After meeting Nikki and her adorable pups I was completely at ease and knew we could have a worry free vacation. We received lots of picture updates of Joni having a great time and i'm pretty sure her first day home she is missing her buddy Montana already. We will definitely use Nikki and Meredith in the future :)

This was my first time using DogVacay and I couldn't be happier with it! Nikki was SO accommodating with drop off and pick up times and would keep me up to date with pictures while I was away so I knew my dog was in good hands. Would definitely use her again for my future trips!

Blake was well taken care of and got to enjoy time to run around in the yard with Montanna and Lucy. Nikki and Meredith also sent picture updates of how she was doing during her vacation which gave me a great sense of comfort while I was away. All in all it was a great experience and I will definitely be booking again whenever Blake needs another vacation!

Finnigan stayed with Nikki and Meredith for a week in July. He had so much fun with them and became great friends with Lucy and Montana. He can't wait to stay with them again!
Finley had a great time on her vacation and made new friends. Nikki made us feel comfortable leaving our fur baby for the weekend. She kept us updated and sent pictures throughout the weekend. We always looked forward to seeing those. Finley can't wait to visit her new friends again soon. Thank you guys so much!

Our Dog Brody had an awesome time! Montana & Lucy are great dogs and our pup had the time of his life with them. Had no worries what so ever leaving Brody with Nikki & Meredith and even got some great updates along the way. Nikki & Meredith are extremely great people and your dog will be over joyed to hang out with their pups!

Thanks again!

Fantastic experience! Nikki and Meredith were great, we did a quick meet and greet and I immediately felt comfortable. They handled my dogs special food needs, took them on walks and stayed in touch with pics. I couldn't have asked for more and I will definitely use them again.

Nikki and Meredith are great dogsitters. They were available when we had to update our reservation the day before, and sent us lots of photos of our dog Murphy throughout the weekend. They were incredibly patient when Murphy was nervous about being in a new place. He was worn out when we picked him up and he napped the rest of the weekend. Totally thrilled and will definitely be booking again.

Our dog Murphy had a wonderful time with Nikki and her pups! I loved getting picture updates of Murph having a great time. And Nikki made it super easy to coordinate drop off/pick up around my travel plans.
My miniature dachshund, Sallie, has stayed with Nikki and Meredith many times. From the very first visit, they were flexible with pick up/drop off times, made me feel so comfortable, and treated Sallie like their own pup. They're great about sending pictures and keeping me informed on how Sallie is doing too.

I always get nervous about leaving Sallie with new people because she's so small and could easily escape through fencing or open doors. I never have to worry about this with Nikki and Meredith. Lucy is also a miniature dachshund so I know they know how to care for small dogs. Montana is also great playing with Sallie. Most of the time I think she would rather stay there with them when I pick her up!

Nikki and Meredith are the best, I wouldn't trust any one else with my Sallie girl! :)

Fritz had an amazing time with Nikki and Meredith and their two dogs! This was my first time using Dogvacay so they sent plenty of updates letting me know how much fun he was having. Fritz can't wait for me to leave town again so he can have a vacation of his own!

Our beagles, Jaycee & Penny LOVED Nikki and Meredith and their fur babies! It was the first time we have left them with anyone other than family and we were a little apprehensive. Nikki and Meredith put us at ease from the second we showed up. They gave us updates and photos of the girls looking happy and well taken care of. We are all looking forward to our next booking. It's very freeing and reassuring to know that when we travel our girls will get expert care having their own vacay!

I had initially reserved with Nikki for just a week for my recovery from surgery. Unfortunately I had a fall and ended up in the hospital for 3 weeks. Nikki was able to keep Dallas and take a great worry off my plate so I could recover. Her home provided Dallas with love,stability and routine he needed with such a long absence from his mom. I am so glad to have found Nikki through Dog Vacay and I will use her again always.

Fantastic hosts! Stinson and Montana (Nikki's golden doodle) had a great time. We loved the photo updates!
Our pet Cheerio had a great stay at Nikki's. He had plenty of care and attention and we found that her home was a safe and comfortable haven for him. We plan to schedule more Dogvacay time with Nikki this year!
Nikki and Meredith were great! My dog had a great time playing with their pup, and they were flexible when my travel plans went a bit awry. Stella can't wait to visit again!
Great experience!
Our dogs had a wonderful vacay with Nikki and Meredith! I was worried before meeting them because one of my dogs is high maintenance (to say the least). But we knew as soon as we went for the meet n greet that they were the perfect people to take care of our furry children for the week. They texted us updates and sent pictures and videos of our dogs playing with theirs. At no point did we worry that our pets weren't being taken care of. Also, they were super flexible and accommodating with the meet n greet, as well as drop off and pick up times. Such a great experience! We will 110% use them again!

The four of them are the cutest family you can keep your dog with while you're gone! They were very attentive with my puppy, and made sure she ate and was happy. My puppy also went along very well with Montana, and didn't want to leave. Nikki was great about keeping me posted throughout the day through text, and they even showered my dog when she got dirty (which is not an easy task!). I'd recommend them to anyone, and will definitely keep my dog with them in the future!

Nikki was great with my puppy. He had a great time. Nikki is the gold standard of Dogvacay.com
Nikki and Meredith are wonderful!! I had a great feeling about them from their profile and first communication. Since they have 2 dogs, we arranged a visit to make sure everyone would get along. It went great and I booked my Boston's 3 night stay. They texted me pictures and updates. I am accustomed to his itching and had packed his spray. They took extra care of him and didn't mind spraying his spots. I really appreciated their concern for his itching enough to share with me the area which seemed to bother him. It made me very happy they cared enough to give him relief. With these ladies your dog will be in great hands!
