About Nikki

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I love animals. I'm the little girl who would save a dog and bring it home to my parents not realizing it's full of mange (yes, true story). I grew up owning every animal imaginable. Dogs, cats, birds, frogs. I use to walk around church as a child wearing one of our deacon's snakes around my waist like a belt. I grew up with german shepherds and delivered both sets of puppies our female had (after doing extensive research at the age of 11). There really isn't an animal I don't love. I have a huge soft spot for friendly creatures. My dog, Nina (age 7) is considered a child to me so I absolutely relate to those that feel the same. My parents have fallen in love with her so she stays at their house -- keeping them company in their relaxed, retired life. With that said, I want to extend that same love to other people's animals. Whether it be a cat or dog, young or old. Let me care for and rub the belly of your loved one.

I currently live in a one bedroom apartment that it very dog-friendly. We have a "wooftop" dog park (they named it, not me!) where there is room to play and do their doggy duties. This makes it very easy to take a dog out whether it be 2p or 2a.

Your dog will never be left alone. Before moving to Hollywood, I lived by the beach and still spend as much time there as I possibly can. Some activities your dog will enjoy are the dog beach in Long Beach, the dog park in Playa Vista where I use to reside, or simply playing at my parents home in their huge backyard with my dog, Nina -- who gets along very well with other animals (she especially takes to small breeds).

I don't have many restrictions other than your dog needing to be potty trained. That is my only requirement.
