About Niki

23 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a 39 year old dog lover living in a 1300 sq ft condo with my dog Oreo. I have been a dog owner all of my life. I work from home so I would be with your dog all day. Oreo is a 15 3/4 year old terrier mix that gets along with all types of animals. We go for walks daily and have play time. Depending on what your dog enjoys, Oreo and I will do our best to entertain them.

My preference is to watch small dogs due to the size and age of Oreo. But if you have older or calmer medium or large dog, it might be a good fit. :-) I do not have the room for a giant sized dog. I have had 3 dogs in my adult life all living long healthy lives in my care, so I have experience with all ages of doggies.

I have been watching my friends pets for years, so this option seemed like a natural fit. If you think we would be a good fit, lets meet up! I would love the opportunity to love on your fur-babies while you are away.

I have completed an online course in Animal Psychology, Animal Training and Pet Sitting and Senior Dog/Cat care.

The boarding rate is charged per 24 hour period. Quotes will be made for a combination of boarding and day care for bookings that are over the 24 hour time period. Just let me know when you plan to drop off and pick up your furbaby! I also require a meet-in-greet before finalizing booking. Stays over a holiday (New Year's Day, MLK Day, President's Day, Easter, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas) may incur a $5 increase in fee for the holiday and the day before and after depending on the length of the stay.

Niki and Oreo are the BEST!
always wonderful!!!
Niki was the perfect person to watch my 2 dogs!! They had a great stay with her and Oreo. Once we had a Meet and Greet with Niki and Oreo I knew Niki loved dogs and would take good care of Parker and Susie. All the photos and updates she sent were a wonderful reassurance that they were doing great! I will definitely make reservations with Niki again in the future.
