About Nicole

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Now that I have been doing this for two years I love dogs even more. I am an active person who loves to go to the dog park, but I also like chilling on the couch reading or watching a movie. Since I have one pug of my own I only watch one family's dog(s) at a time. This is why I say I only take one dog, but will take more from the same family upon request. I have enjoyed getting to know all of the dogs that I have watched as well as their owners. I love sending pics and updates on what we are up to. Your dog will be loved, played with and safe while spending time with me. The best part is since I am a teacher I am home a lot over the holidays and summer:)

Nicole is the most patient, kind and loving person with animals. No one else could keep my dog with his anxiety but Nicole and her family understand and take him in like one of them. Now I have a sitter! Thank you Nicole.
Stanley came down with an upset stomach prior to visiting and needed medicines administered. He is much better after his visit, and Nicole and her family went out of their way to make Stanley better. Further, her little dog became very close with mine in short order, and I will definitely be booking with her again!
Nicole was a great host! Maddox had a wonderful stay and really loved their dog. I will definitely be using Nicole again.
Nicole did a great job with our puppy, Abby. We are leaving for a week in January and decided to do a trial run for a night. I can now say that I feel completely comfortable leaving Abby for a week- she has so much fun there that she probably won't even miss us! Their pug is very friendly and Abby had a blast running around with her. She was exausted when she came home. I can tell Nicole really loves dogs and takes great care of them!
This was our 1st time using DogVacay & we were very pleased. Nichole took wonderful care of our westie! She was very friendly & accommodating & kept us updated with texts and pictures of how Zoe was doing. We were gone 2 weeks & Zoe was happy & very well cared for when we picked her up. Will definitely being using Nichole T. again.
Nicole was wonderful. She took great care of Lulu !! She kept us updated by text and pictures. Definitely would use Nicole again!!
Nicole did a fabulous job of providing thoughtful and compassionate care for our senior dog while we were on a 7-day vacation. Even though our dog got sick just before we left for our trip, Nicole made sure to properly administer all of his medication and make us feel comfortable leaving him behind. We are extremely grateful for Nicole and her family, and would definitely recommend her to anyone.
We are very protective of our Gracie, and after this initial stay, we have no hesitation in hiring Nicole again. She provided a safe and puppy friendly environment.
Looking forward to our second babysitting session
Nicole is friendly and loving. She sent wonderful pictures and updates while she had our furbaby! When we picked up CC she knew her so well and she was so comfortable in the home that it made me feel great about being away from her. Excited to have a second home for her when needed!!!
She was very good with my dog, always responded quickly and took care of him very well. I would recommend her to anyone.
Nicole was great with our puppy! She provided updates the entire time we were away and was very attentive to details about our dog. Her home is welcoming, clean, friendly, and fun. We will definitely be booking with Nicole again!
Nicole provided a home away from home for my puppy. She did an amazing job taking care of her and I loved all the updates, pictures and videos of my puppy's stay with Nicole. I highly recommend! I will definitely be a repeat customer!
Nicole is awesome! This is the second time I have had Nicole watch my dog and at the start my dog trotted into her house like she had come home. She provides excellent customer service and was flexible on time of day for pick-up and drop-off. Her family showed my dog a lot of love over the 5 days and she even sent a photo so I felt close to my dog even though I was so far away.
Nicole was amazing! My dog was in great hands, and Nicole was perfectly accommodating with scheduling. I loved the frequent updates and pictures.
Nicole was warm and welcoming to our dog. She sent pictures to us as our dog settled in for the weekend. She also swung by afterwards to return the dog bed that I had mistakenly left at her house. We are happy to have found her!
It was so great to have Nicole and her family take care of Onyx so we didn't have to leave her at home alone. Onyx was so happy to run up to the door when we dropped her off - that's a great sign!
Nicole was great! I wish my pups behaved a little better, but thank you so so much for putting up with them!
Cosmo had another fantastic stay with Nicole and her family. He got lots of love, exercise and attention while we were away for a long weekend.
Excellent stay. Took care of Archi's anxiety and food allergies. Had no worries, will use again.
Always so sweet and just a lovely place to bring my puppy!
Nicole was wonderful! She responded almost immediately, accomodated our very urgent need to find someone to care for our dog on short notice, and was extremly flexible!

She communicated regularly throughout our dog's stay, and sent some great pictures along the way.

When we leave town again, we will surely try to have Nicole and her family care for our dog again, and we would recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone!

Thanks so much, Nicole!
She was so sweet to Onyx and sent me pictures of her during her stay. She even sewed up her toy twice after Onyx ripped it!
Nicole was awesome in taking care of my dog Korra. I received tons of pictures and updates on how my dog was doing. Will use her again.
Nicole took Teddy on lots of walks and even runs! She gave him plenty of physical activity! She also communicated with us before, during and after process very professionally and often! We would use Nicole again and recommend her to friends!
I would definitely recommend Nicole as a pet sitter. She is organized and nice to work with. There are no steps in her home, which helps my Roxie get around easily. She has sweet and gentle children, whose company my dogs enjoyed. Jake & Roxie were relaxed when I picked them up, and not especially eager to leave. Always a good sign.

Overall, I was VERY comfortable leaving my babies with Nicole and will do so again sometime.
Nicole and her family did a WONDERFUL job taking care of our Frenchie, Cosmo during his recent stay with them. Nicole was extremely flexible and accommodating, as our reservation request was somewhat last minute and over the holidays. While we were away, we received frequent pictures and texts to let us know how Cosmo was doing, which was much appreciated. It was clear that Cosmo quickly settled into his new home and became part of their family during his time with Nicole and her family. We would definitely recommend Nicole to others and will most definitely be contacting her again to watch Cosmo.
Lyndon loved his stay with Nicole. He is a bit needy and she was able to take care of him.
