About Nikki

Welcome, Dog Owners!

We would love to have a dog of our own, but work and travel often gets in the way. We are both seasoned dog caretakers, in addition to watching dogs of friends and ones from DogVacay, Nikki has volunteered at the Humane Society and Adam often gets distracted by puppies at the pet store. Since we can't have a dog of our own, we are looking to help people take relaxing vacations where they know their dog is happy and well cared for-- and we get the added bonus of being able to hang out with a dog!

While we prefer to watch dogs on weekends (gives us extra play time at the Shirlington Dog Park), we both have flexible work schedules and can accommodate longer requests. We both take equal care of our guests and typically if we have a dog on Fridays Adam will work from home and keep them company all day.

Nikki and Adam were fabulous with our dog, a 70 pound hound. They are friendly, welcoming, calm, and experienced. They provided updates during the stay, and we never once worried about our dog. They watched him for about 10 days, keeping him on his usual schedule, and he returned home healthy and happy. We highly recommend Nikki!
Nikki and Adam were great! Bella had fun and I received photos of her every day. It was a 5-night reservation and I wouldn't hesitate contacting them again. I know Bella would be thrilled. Thanks!
Nikki was super awesome! Communication before, and during the stay was perfect. She sent constant photos of my doggy. And she is super nice in general! Definitely using them again! Thank you thank you!!
Nikki was great, very flexible and very friendly. She sent me pictures even though she knew I wouldn't have Internet access. And she let my (100 pound) dog sleep on her bed! I would definitely board my dog with Nikki again.
Dexter had so much fun with Nikki! They took lots of walks and he got to play at the dog park, which he loves. She sent me several pictures of him and was quick to respond via text when I asked how he was doing. She was also flexible with pick-up time, as I wasn't sure until that day of what time I'd be returning. Overall a great experience, would definitely recommend!
Midget had a great time, and Nikki was great to work with. She sent photos, worked around our hectic schedule, and our pup came home happy.
Nikki is accessible, flexible, and in contact. Hope she is available to watch Ginger in the future!
Nikki came through for us on short notice and provided excellent care for Ginger. She sent us photos throughout the weekend and Ginger seemed to be very happy staying with Nikki. I would highly recommend her to other pet owners!
Nikki was wonderful! She was very responsive and sent us daily updates on Stella. This was my first experience with DogVacay and she made me feel completely at ease. Would love to have her pet sit again!!
