About Nelly

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello there,

I am a trustworthy, loyal, respectful animal LOVER that would love to take the time to make your pet comfortable while you are away. I have a profound, deep respect for every living creature and you trust your best friend with me. I am highly active, living right near a dog park and Runyon Canyon and I will play with your pup like they are my own. My apartment is a large 2 bedroom unit with, hardwood floors, pet friendly furniture, and a patio. Additionally, there are plenty of puppies in the neighborhood and even a pet goat! Your dog is guaranteed to have a blast.

I have experience working with animals at various animal shelters and animal sanctuaries and have a knack for working with dogs of all temperaments. In addition to dogs, I am open to sitting for any type of pet. I have been known to cat sit, rat sit etc.. no creature is too big or too small.

I live with my husband, who works from home and is a little puppy charmer! Your furry baby will have attention and love 24/7! We are always available by email, phone or text message and will frequently send you updates on how your best friend is doing. You can even Skype with them if you'd like!

Hope to meet you soon! Cheers!

Thank you Nelly + Taner for always accommodating our crazy schedules and last minute requests!
I always feels comfortable leaving my pups with Nelly and know they are in great hands. Thanks!
Always an awesome experience!
Butters and Sugar love staying with them and I can't say enough amazing things about Nelly, Taner, and Ladytron!
Our Buckley always has a wonderful time. He's given lots of attention and taken such great care of. Nelly is his home away from home!
Nelly was a wonderful host for Lionel! She was very communicative with photos and updates, and Lionel was immediately at ease. We'll definitely be back!
I love Nelly! She is a sweetie. Down to earth, and super loving with pets.
Nelly and Tanner are our go to sitters. They love Lola and always take very good care of her. Nelly always sends photos and updates while we are away. We always know Lola is in good hands when we go out of town.
This was my pups first time staying with Nelly and while it took a bit for him to get comfortable with the other dogs there, Nelly did a great job taking care of him and providing me with updates! He ended up having a great time there and made some new friends!
Great, as always! I love that Nutmeg returns from her stay with Nelly and easily settles back into her routine at home. I also really appreciate that Nelly is always quick to respond to texts and emails.
Nutmeg had a great stay, as usual!
Thank you Nelly, Taner and LadyTron!! xo
Thank you Nelly, Taner and LadyTron!! xo
Nelly and Tanner saved us when we needed a last minute sitter for our Charley. So grateful for their speedy help and flexibility as we tried to handle our last minute travel changes...will definitely keep them on the short list for sitters in the future!
Nelly was beyond responsive and accommodating during this first time dog vacay experience. She was able to help us through the process and really make us feel like Lola was in good hands. She kept us posted on Lola during her stay and even sent photos. When we picked up Lola she seemed to be in fantastic spirits so we know she had an awesome stay. Can't wait to use Nelly and Tanner again!
Nelly and Taner were amazing! We loved the photo updates and our pups came back to us happy and exhausted. They were such a pleasure and extremely accommodating to our schedule. We'll definitely be using them again in the future! Thanks Nelly!
This was Nutmeg's second stay with Nelly and Taner and everything was just as great as the first time! They're very caring dog people and they even seem to appreciate Nutmeg's boundless energy. We also really appreciate the photo updates they send. They're great!
Nelly is fantastic! Maurice has stayed with her on many occasions and I feel like he is in great hands. She is easy to coordinate with and sends me updates on his stay which I always appreciate.
Nelly and Taner always take wonderful care of Wily and Joia. Such a pleasure and comfort knowing that they are there for us. Thanks!
Nelly and Tanner were great hosts! I really appreciated that they asked about food allergies, feeding times, and schedule. They're extremely conscientious and that's very important to me.

We received frequent updates with photos while we were away so we could see for ourselves that Nutmeg was very comfortable. Nutmeg is an energetic dog and they handled her wonderfully, she was exhausted when she came home!
Nelly and her partner Taner took such good care of Lulu. I usually get very anxious leaving our baby behind when my husband and I travel but seeing how Lulu looked forward to her vacays with Nelly made me feel so relaxed about leaving her. Nelly regularly sent pictures of Lulu which was great. She walked Lulu very regularly and even let her sleep on the couch! I highly recommend Nelly.
Nelly was very understanding and patient, which is needed with a blind and deaf dog. His meds were given and he was tired from posing during his night walk.
Thanks for taking care of my Lucy while I was away. Great job!
Thank goodness for Nelly!! Our 10-year-old golden retriever just had a pretty big surgery on his larynx. The vet ordered that he was to remain calm for a couple of weeks and needed to take medication twice a day.
Nelly was super conscientious about our dog's care. She ensured that he was calm during his stay and when he would not take his meds, she became very creative.
Nelly put our minds at ease. She provided us with daily texts and pictures. We are so excited to have found someone so loving and reliable!!
I think Delilah had a really good time. Nelly and Tanner were very nice and responsive considering my last minute request. Thank you!
Nelly and Taner were absolutely wonderful. Very kind and thoughtful. I received fun updates and photos, and the pups came home happy and exhausted. Clearly they enjoyed watching the World Cup with them! Thanks guys!
We love Nelly! She gives us updates and genuinely feel like she cares about Pickles. She's also super flexible which we appreciate.
Nelly took EXCELLENT care of our dog Jake! We were out of town for a week and we were sent photo's/ video's/ text messages with updates and how he had been acting, his walks, ect. She even went out of her way to pick up medication for him! Extremely satisfied with our first experience using dogvacay, it was such the perfect find for us. We highly recommend Nelly, a very sweet person and a true animal lover, if your lucky enough to get her you will undoubtedly share our experience!
Nelly was amazing, I'd leave Wrigley with her any day! Nelly got back to me very quickly about her availability and was very flexible with meet and greet times. Wrigley fit in just great with her and the other dogs at the house and she took him on lots of walks which was great. She sent me lots of pictures and videos of Wrigley, so I knew he was very happy staying with her! I will definitely use Nelly in the future!
Nelly was amazing!!!! She took my dogs last minute. They were so happy and well cared for and she was an absolute doll! Thank you Nelly Roxy can't wait to visit again!!!! Heather-
Nelly is awesome! We were caught last minute over the holidays without anyone to watch our tiny pup Martin, and Nelly more than came to the rescue. She is incredibly trustworthy, responsible ( gave us email updates + pics while we were away), flexible with her schedule and kind. Can't recommend her highly enough - we will certainly book with her again. Thank you Nelly!!
Nelly was amazing!!!! She took care of my puppy over Christmas and even was so sweet to send me pictures to let me know how the pup was doing. Her dog ladytron is very friendly and got along well with Pickles. Her place is super clean and she didnt get mad when pickles made a little puddle on her floor.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND her!!! This is such a great site, and I felt so much better having her with someone who loves dogs then at a kennel. She also took pickles up to Runyon Canyon which was great because after a long day of travel Pickles was just as tired as I was and I didnt have to worry about taking her for a long walk.

THANKS, NELLY!!!! You were awesome :)
