About Nic

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My very friendly mutt Badger and I are always looking to welcome new friends into the home. I myself know the stress of having to leave your furry child behind when going away for a few days, so try to make it as comfortable as possible for others in that situation!
Close to the Wheaton metro, where we love to take walks for some daily oxygen and sunshine. If your dog has tons and tons of energy, I will gladly take them for a jog or play fetch until one of us tires out.
I live in a comfy, smoke-free apartment surrounded by many green spaces and doggy facilities nearby.

We were really pleased with Nicole and the way she cared for our dog. She was always very responsive and sent pictures regularly during our vacation. Her dog, Badger, was very friendly and seemed to get along well with our older labrador. Thanks, Nicole!!

Nic was great! Very responsive, got back to us quickly. Sammy had a great stay with her.
Nic was a great host, very welcoming and accommodating and our pet settled in and had a wonderful stay!
My boys had another great stay with Nicole! She sent picture updates during their stay, so I knew they were comfortable and happy while I was away. Will definitely use her again.
Nic was great. She came to my house a few times a week while I was away to check on my cat. She gave me great updates and was really flexible with all of the logistics. A-class pet sitter.
Nicky was wonderful with our dog. It was our first time using Dogvacay and she made the experience smooth and comfortable. I would recommend using Nicky anytime. She's amazing!
Nicole was excellent! Her place was nice and open and lots of green space outside for the dogs to sniff and play. She also sent picture updates, which I loved! Nicole was personable, easy to communicate with, and very accommodating. I highly recommend her if you're looking for a pet sitter!

Huge thanks to Nic for her courteous, professional, and efficient dog care service. As a first time DogVacay user I was extremely pleased with the quality of care Kaleb received while with Nic and her wonderful dog Badger. I highly recommend her services to anyone. Thanks again Nic and hopefully we can arrange some future play dates for our dogs.

Nicole is awesome! She sent pictures often and it was clear that she was taking great care of my pup! I would definitely use her again :)
I was pleased with Lucky's stay with Ms. Nic. She was warm and friendly and patient with my dog as he adjusted. I appreciate the picture updates and the convenient times that I was able to pick up and drop off Lucky.
Nicole and Badger were great hosts for my dog, Mila. Nicole made me feel at ease leaving Mila for the first time. She sends you updates and pictures, and even went out of her way and fixed the strap on the dog bag! She's a very kind, friendly person and I look forward to using her services again in the future!

Nick is so awesome! Sent pictures and updates daily, my girls had a great time.
Nicole was a fantastic host for our dog! We couldn't be happier. She lives a great place with a nice park nearby. She was diligent about texting updates throughout the weekend. We hadn't asked for updates but Nicole was great in sending them. It definitely put us at ease to see our girl having a good time out sniffing around.

Nicole is very professional and polite and we will definitely be using her again next time we head out of town. Thank you Nicole!

Nic was great. She and her pup are both super friendly and Jai had a great time at her place. I loved all the pictures she sent me of him having a great time. It really put me at ease.
Nic was very responsive to my inquiries prior to our meeting, flexible in regards to working around my schedule & very kind and thoughtful of both me and my dog. Her apartment is in a safe & clean pet-friendly area which includes lush green spaces for walks and an enclosed off-leash park for play. Nic's apartment was open, airy, clean and provided much sunlight for lounging on the many available dog beds. During his stay, Nic sent pictures and updates of my dog which showed he was getting along great with her dog and seemed very happy! Her enclosed sun porch seemed to be his favorite place to hang out on a dog bed with his new pal:) Being new to Baltimore & an overly protective "dog-mom" I was thankful for the reassurance I recieved from Nic's obvious experience and caring nature. I would highly recommend Nic's services for any pet owner looking for a caretaker who will treat your pet as her own! As a pit bull owner, I am always nervous of how pet sitters will treat my dog or how they may unintentially allow him to be placed in a compromising position but Nic was knowledgible and treated my dog both fairly and was as protective as I am. I was very impressed with her services and when the need arises I will certainly utilize them again.

Very caring individual with a lot of experience with dogs.
Nic and Badger were excellent hosts. Nic is responsive and timely. Badger is playful and accepting. By her own account Petunia had a wonderful vacation. She was so tired from all the fun she slept for an entire day after returning home. Nic's apartment is open and has plenty of dog beds. The complex even has it's own small dog park. I plan to call on Nic again the next time Petunia needs a break from her family.
