About Nikki

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I love cats and offer cat sitting as well as dog sitting! I’m happy to visit your kitty while you’re away.

My name is Nikki and I am a work from home parent of my 4 legged babies. I am a HUGE animal lover and have 3 dogs and 1 cat right now. I have been pet sitting for family and friends for many, many years, and have been working with DogVacay for about 3 years.


Since I work from home, I can accommodate almost any schedule (including most holidays), I am very flexible, and your baby will not be home alone usually. I babysit a lot, and there are usually children around to play with during the day too.

I do attend church services on Sunday mornings and teach in the children's class. My animals and any guest dogs would be home alone (possibly) for just a couple of hours. I usually attend first service, so I am usually gone for about 2 1/2 hours. If you need to drop off or pick up your baby, we would need to arrange a time around church.

We are always searching for more friends to add to our family, and size does not matter; we love them all. Our friends can come for a short time, or feel free to stay a while. We have a ranch style house that is always animal friendly, and a large fenced back yard where we enjoy running and playing. Our house is in a safe neighborhood and we can enjoy going for walks and visiting with neighbors at times.

Please feel free to come and visit, or come stay a while. Your baby(s) will be in good hands. We look forward to meeting you!

Nikki watched Brownie, 5 year old yorkie, for us and we were very grateful. Her pick up/ drop off times were flexible which worked out great. She sent us pictures of Brownie as well. it may help in the future is if you asked if the animals have fleas or any other issues. We had taken Brownie to the groomers before dropping him off. He came back with fleas. And his bag and crate smelled of poop.

Nikki was great. Maestro loved his stay!
Nikki was an awesome sitter! Buddy came back very happy and I loved all the pictures she sent! Thanks again!!
Nikki provided my two dogs, TJ And Cinnie great care when I was away on vacation. They were well fed, played with, and walked each day. Nikki came into my home while I was away to care for them. I felt very comfortable that my dogs were able to stay in their own environment while I was away and have someone to check in on them everyday. She even uploaded pictures of them playing and having a great time. I will definitely use her servise again.

Nikki was great! Thanks so much!!
My dog, Hugh, slept through the night after a day with Nikki and the other dogs there. That only means that Hugh had a great time while with Nikki. Thank you Nikki!
Nikki always take great care of our 3 dogs and they love going over there.
Nikki took great care of our dog Chester while I traveled for three days. I even got update pictures of Chester playing with her dogs. I picked up our little guy and brought him home, and he seemed to have a great time at Nikki's. Thanks!
Thank you very much. It's great being able to count on you!
Excellent service, again!
I left my two rather clingy and quirky pups with Nikki for 8 days. I was in a place with no cell service so I could only check on them on rare occasions. Nikki was always prompt to respond. She is a great pet sitter that I would definitely use again and refer others to. I returned home to two very happy dogs! As a pet parent, you can tell when your babies have been put through a traumatic or difficult experience. My babies were very happy and not at all stressed when I returned.

I am extremely happy with the care Nikki provided to my two cats. I was away nearly twice as long as i anticipated, but because Nikki was responsible for their care I was not anxious about the situation.
My two cats and I relocated to another part of the country. After only 3 days in our new home I needed to return to our former city, on business...at the same time as a hurricane was anticipated. Luckily, I found Nikki's profile online, and she was available to help. And what a wonderful help she has been!

I really appreciated the photo updates on my pal. She did this even though Schatzi only spent a few hours there. It was my first time leaving my dog with a sitter but Nikki was reassuring. The funniest thing was how Schatzi came home exhausted from a full day of play! She was a happy pup.

Nikki was absolutely wonderful! She was able to take my pup on short notice and was so very flexible in drop off and pick up times! I loved that she posted so many pictures of Kendall enjoying himself with the other dogs, so I knew he was having a blast. I would definitely recommend her to anyone and will certainly be using her again myself!

Gia and Lilly are always so excited to stay with Nikki. Gia isn't very good at making new friends with other dogs so Nikki takes the time to keep her separated.
I have found Nikki to be accommidating, warm, and generous with her attention. She is able to handle many dogs at a time. She kept me updated through the week even with pictures. To have her so close to home is fantastic. She is a real Gem!
Nikki is very caring with my dogs. The pictures and text messages for updates were great. It was nice to see my dogs having fun with other dogs and enjoying their time at her house.
she was great.cali loved being with nikki and she keep me posted with email pictures of cali. nikki said she did so great i would recommend her 100% to everyone. your pet will be in great hands.
I was able to enjoy my vacation knowing my pups were being well taken care of. I enjoyed the pics sent to me keeping me informed.
Nymeria had a great time with Nikki. She loved playing in her big back yard with her dogs and other guest dogs. Also, Nikki was very flexible with pick up and drop off times. We will be booking with her again if she is available for our next trips.
As always, Lilly loves her visits with Nikki and her pups! Nikki takes wonderful care if Lilly and we can go out of town worry free! Thank you Nikki! Krissy and Kirby
Nikki was very sweet and loving to all of the animals at her house.
Nikki was great and very accommodating! Our pups enjoyed her big yard!
Noah is always SO ecstatic to arrive to Nikki's and see her gang! It gives me great joy to know that he is having a blast while I am away. Again I thank Nikki for taking added precautions to let Noah play with the little guys and keeping him separate from the bigger dogs that happen to be staying at the same time. We appreciate all the love and care you give!

Nikki is awesome and my dog Noah loves staying with her and her gang! I would like to leave the added note that I have a pitbull who LOVES little dogs and is usually fearful of bigger dogs and so will become aggressive with them. Usually people aren't willing to work with me on this, but Nikki doesn't discriminate and has no problem letting Noah play with her little guys. He truly is a "little dog in a big dog's body" and she sees that and takes the extra measure to let him play with the little guys while rotating him out with the bigger dogs, if she has some staying with her at the same time as Noah. I really appreciate that she does this because otherwise Noah would have to go into solitary confinement when I am away, which breaks my heart. I have used her again and will continue to use her services in the future! Thanks Nikki!

Nikki is so a sweet! You will see right away how much she loves animals!
Our dog Lilly loves to go to Nikki's house for her vacations. Lilly has fun playing with the other dogs, and gets plenty of exercise.
Nikki even lets Lilly sleep with her at night......Absolutely Wonderful! It is great for my husband and I to be able to go on vacation knowing our dog is so well taken care of!
Thank you so much!

Nikki was great. It was my dogs first time away from us, and I did not know what to expect. Nikki welcomed my dog and cared for her wonderfully. I highly recommend Nikki!!
Lilly had a wonderful time with Nikki. We felt very comfortable when we left Lilly. Nikki is very sweet and great with the animals she cares for! Thank you very much!
Luna and I couldn't be happier with Nikki! She is very flexible and responsive and provides excellent care for my pup. Plenty of room to run and play and plenty of love from the host!!
Nikki was super. She was most accommodating, with our changing schedule. Our dog was given 5 star treatment. I look forward to working with her again. If Nikki cares for your dog you can be rest assured that you and your four legged friend are in good, and capable hands. Two thumbs up!!

shes awesome!
Nikki was great, even with new new dog who's an escape artist. They had fun and I loved the pictures as usual.
Nikki took really good care of my Foxy, sending me pictures and updates which made me enjoy my vacation more. Foxy seemed to enjoy playing with the other pups - and Nikki said she did well with them. Nikki is a true animal lover. We will see her again next month.

Nikki was great. She tended to our senior dogs' special needs. She kept in touch with me everyday and especially when she had concerns about her health. It was reassuring to know when our dog was settling in and getting along with the many dogs at her home. We loved getting the pictures too! Having a ranch home with a flat and fenced big yard was helpful as our dog cannot do steps anymore.

I took Baxter to Nikki to do a test run before I left for a trip since he'd never been away from me for a night before (had him less than a year). Nikki was awesome with him and having the other dogs around made him feel at home and put him at ease. Then, I got sick to the point where I wouldn't be able to take care of him, and Nikki was great to work with and took care of him for the rest of the week while I recuperated. Nikki was awesome and Baxter did great. I really appreciated the updates and photos she sent just to let me know how he was doing. Will definitely be using her again when I take my next trip.

Nikki is a great sitter! I felt so comfortable leaving Maggie with her. She treats the animals like her own and is attentive to all their needs. I will certainly book with Nikki in the future!
I just don't know where to start. Nikki is a very sweet caring dog sitter. Her yard is absolutely fantastic for Ziva to romp around in. She administered her medication efficiently. Ziva came home extremely tired from playing. (Ziva has a lot of energy so for her to be tired is something to see). I HIGHLY RECOMEND NIKKI AND I WILL USE HER AGAIN. Nikki thank you so much for all the pictures and keeping me posted on how she was doing.

Nikki took great care of Zoey while I was away. Loved the photos though my dog does look to sit still.
Nikki was sweet and caring. Charly was well cared for. - She was also very flexible with our drop-off and pick up times.
Super dog sitter! My dog came home happy and healthy. We will definitely bring her to Nikki again on our next vacation! Oh, and the picture updates of our dog making herself right at home at her house....priceless! Thanks so much Nikki! :)
Nikki is great our dog Melo enjoyed his time with her very well an came home super tired she also send up pictures while he was with her. She was also cool with keeping him another day at the last moment, I would give more stars for sure if I could.

We were extremely pleased with the care Izzy got with Nikki! A true lover of animals she provides a safe, happy environment for the dogs. We appreciated the photos of Izzy interacting with Nikki's pups and other guests. Izzy needed a large fenced yard to run and play. So Nikki's place was perfect!

Nikki was wonderful!! She took fabulous care of Coco. I felt completely at ease leaving Coco with her. And Coco obviously enjoyed her stay. She loved being with nikki's other dogs -- she even whined about leaving, LOL! She's really happy to be home now and back in her regular routine, but nikki's house and yard were a true "home away from home" for her. Thank you, Nikki!!

Everything was great. It was so nice to be able to go on vacation and know our dog was going to be happy. Nikki responded quickly, took good care of the dog, and was very flexible with drop off/pick up. Thanks, Nikki!
