About Nina

21 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 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 3 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-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 minutes 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. When we lost Tigger last year, it was extremely hard on me. I got him at 6 weeks old for my husband as a gift and we bottle fed him. He was our baby. When he passed - peacefully at home - yet unexpected (that soon) my friend was to my rescue. She took my Tigger home and prepared all of his cremation and gave me a mold of his paw coated in brass as a keep-sake and she also gave me a porcelain urn shaped into a cat sleeping. Tigger remains with us in spirit - here at our home. The urn is ivory so my daughter likes to draw on it for holidays with dry erase markers to wish him a happy holiday. Couldn't ask for a better friend to have with superb knowledge on all animals.

I am very thankful I found Nina in DogVacay to take care of my baby. She and her family did a wonderful job! Nina was very communicative and gave updates everyday, which helped put my mind at ease knowing that my dog is in great care. She also sends pictures and videos. I will definitely use her again and I highly recommend her. Thanks again Nina!

Nina was great and kind! She took good care of my puppy Maggie and made me feel relax (first time customer with Dogvacay). Thank you very much Nina and your family!
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!!
