About Nina

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I live near a large outdoor park with plenty of room to run.
We also have a couple nice walking paths around lakes.
I live on a street that is sort-of a pass thru residential street so we have plenty of people watching and car watching while, sitting in the yard relaxing.
Dogs eyes and ears will be stimulated or they can relax inside with a nice view of birds and squirrels and trees.

Please know that your loved one will never be alone and will be on a long leash for roaming purposes but not long enough to get close to sidewalks or street. Our association requires all dogs outside to be leashed. Also, I have no dangerous foliage in the yard although, I do have seasonal flowers and a very small veggie garden which I will not allow them to get into.

My children are very kind to animals. My daughter is in school full-time but my son is only 2 1/2 y.o. so he would be home. So he would be playful with the dogs.
We had 2 cats for 16 years. We lost 2 years back and we just lost our other one last winter. Both were very hard for us as a family.

I was raised around smaller dogs. We had a poodle, shih tzu/poo and we fostered a collie at one time.

My own family hasn't had a dog yet because we had 2 cats and a fish. But right now we have no pets. We don't have any intent on getting any new pets to add to our family as of now because losing our cats were too painful.

I also have a best friend who lives 5 mintues away and she is a stay at home mom for the most part but is a vet tech on Saturdays with previous full-time experience. She is a phone call away and loves, loves, loves animals. So you can feel safe should any medical attention be needed that we have a trusted person that could help immediately.

Nina and her family was absolutely amazing to my senior pup Candy. I cannot thank them enough for accommodating Candy's needs and making her truly feel at home. I could tell from Nina's updates that Candy was comfortable and doing well which put my mind at ease since I always get nervous when I leave her :)

I will definitely reach out to Nina again, because I know my pup will be in great hands!!
Nina was simply fantastic. My dog gloved staying with her and her family. In fact I think he is sad to be back home :) Highly recommend!
Amazing!!!!!!!! Worth every exclamation point. One of my dogs didn't want to leave when I came to pick them up. We will be back for all of our travel needs. Nina was so accommodating and her family (especially the kids) were so good with both of my boys including a skiddish 15 year old pom with residual effects of being rescued from a hoarding situation. She sent several updates and had no problem accepting a last minute booking. She was quick to respond and so welcoming. Some days when I feel like running away from being an adult I might ask about boarding myself. It was that welcoming and we all felt very much at ease leaving our family members in her care. I couldn't have asked for better. Thanks Nina!!!!!
Very flexible!
As a first time customer with dogvacay I felt 100% at ease when i dropped my pup off with Nina. Everything was extremely easy and Nina and her family were very welcoming/warm. I knew that my dog would be safe and happy in their home while I was out for the weekend. We received multiple pictures and videos, which all showed how happy she was! Fantastic service, I will definitely be coming back to Nina in the future.

Thanks Nina!
Nina Did a wonderful job with taking care of JJ. She sent me daily updates with photos and took great care of him after he got himself in trouble with getting sprayed by a skunk.
In simple words AWESOME!!!! I made a last minute reservation with Nina and she accepted it. She gave me and my pet a very warm welcome, showed me around her house and greeted my pet as her own, thru out my trip I had a sense of security that my pet was in good hands. Will be coming back to you whenever I have to go anywhere. Thanks
Nina and her family took great care of Tiger. They treated him like part of the family. They are friendly, caring and wanted to be certain that Tiger had a comfortable stay. He will definitely return!
Nina and her family were the best hosts to my pup Nellie!! Nellie wasn't feeling well the first day and kept having accidents in the house, but Nina was so understanding and loving and even offered to take her to the vet if needed! She sent me updates throughout the stay and was really accommodating and flexible with the pick up and drop off times. I would whole heartedly recommend Nina to anyone wanting a carefree and fun boarding experience for their dog!
This is the first time I have left my dog with anyone. I was nervous and worried. Nina made me feel so comfortable and gave me updates daily. She was amazing with my Sparky. I think my dog had more fun at her house then he does at his own house :) Nina was a sweetheart and I will definitely use her again and again. She was great with the dog and her kids loved him too.
