About Nicole

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi everyone! My name is Nicole and I am a certified Dog-Lover. I work from home as a self-employed Commercial Real Estate Property Manager and part time Wedding Photographer. I have a wonderful rescue named Zoey Bear, who is Beagle/Lab pup- she and I have been family for almost seven years now.

I understand the responsibilities of being about to care and provide for our furry loved ones and I love each pup as if he or she were my own. I love getting outdoors for physical exercise, so taking dogs on long walks and bathroom breaks are a pleasure. I also am aware of precautions and dietary restrictions in caring for any dog and I make sure that my dog or any dog that is in my care is in good hands and is treated exactly the same way I would want someone to treat my pup.

I have a large fenced-in tennis court that I use to play with my vacationing pups. It's basically a giant outdoor play area for the pups to run freely and play frisbee and fetch. I do not have a fenced backyard, but as a general rule, all dogs I watch, are never off leash and are under 24/hr supervision.

Do not hesitate to get in touch with me for any questions.

Nicole was a lifesaver. My other reservation got cancelled last minute. I got to my hotel at almost midnight to learn I had no puppy daycare and my family reunion was in the morning. I did a request in the middle of the night and Nicole responded. And, even though she was away, she responded. She made arrangements with Amy, who lives at her house to take care of Danny. The house was beautiful and Nicole's dog was a sweetheart. She singlehandedly made our first Dogvacay a success.
Nicole is fantastic! My dog loves staying with Nicole and Zoey and is always thrilled to return!
Once again, Nicole never fails to make sure my boy is well taken care of. He always has a good time and love's his best friend Zoe. I can't say enough good things!
Nicole was great as always. She's very flexible when it comes to drop off and pick up times which is awesome.
This was our second dogvacay with Nicole. Our experience was, once again, very positive. Nicole is a kind caregiver to our Bailey. We feel very confident Bailey gets all the love & attention she gets at home with us. Nicole goes above and beyond...with special treats, outings, photographs, and grooming!! Nicole is simply the best.
Mia's stay with Nicole and Zoey could not have gone any better! Mia can be "iffy" around other dogs but I already knew that she had a great fondness for her Tuesday night dog walking pal "Zoey". We received text message, photo and video updates throughout her stay that not only reassured us that things were fine, but also made us laugh to see the two of them playing, cuddling and bonding. The house was beautiful and had so much room for Mia to romp, run and play. When we picked up Mia we received a "thank you" bag and inside was a stunning framed photo of Mia, a super nice detailed note and a treat. Mia was content, happy and tired when we brought her home (which is the ultimate sign that she loved it). I would recommend anyone to Nicole if they are looking for outstanding dog sitting service and we will be using her again on our next vacation.
Nicole took great care of our dog Sadie for 10 days. We were nervous leaving her for the first time but Nicole sent us pictures and videos which was wonderful and quickly replied to any messages I sent asking how things were going. We will definitely leave Sadie with Nicole (and Zoey) again.
Nicole and her little dog Zoey are a Delight! Nicole gave exceptional care to my 2 year old chocolate lab Jax for 7 days. I received pictures and videos throughout the week. Jax came home happy, healthy and tired.I absolutely will be using Nicole in the future.
Nicole and Zoey are the best! Ody, our pug, came home very happy (and tired :)). He had lots of fun playing with all his new friends.
Nicole is the sweetest...very thoughtful and conscientious. We will definitely use Nicole whenever when we need a "home away from home" for Ody. Thank you Dog Vacay for giving us Nicole and such a great experience!
Nicole and her dog, Zoey are phenomenal! We had never left our dogs, but Nicole is so calm, kind and patient, that we truly felt like we were sending our dogs on a wonderful vacation! Nicole is very flexible about drop off and pick-up times; great as far as taking the dogs out and exercising them and great too for just sitting down and cuddling with them. We would definitely use Nicole again and really can't say enough good things about her! Thank you for everything, Nicole - and you too, Zoey!
Nicole is a treasure! Her home was a wonderful experience for our dog, not just a place to stay. She took him on dog walks with other dogs, played ball with him, and gave him lots of "cuddle time". It will make it so much easier to leave him again now that we know Nicole. We enjoyed the photos and video that she sent to us, letting us know that he was in good hands and having fun. Perhaps he had a better time on his vacay than we had on ours!!
Nicole was AWESOME!!! We have never boarded our dog Sacha (she either stays with family or friends stop by). Needless to say, I was a little nervous. Nicole certainly calmed my fears. She was very patient with Sacha; even when Sacha had a few accidents. :( She kept her entertained, exercised and very, VERY happy. Sacha enjoyed playing with Zoe and the other guests. The grounds of her home are definitely a dog's paradise! I would highly recommend Nicole and would have Sacha stay over again! This was a great experience! :)
We were delighted by our experience leaving our golden retriever, Webster, and our goldendoodle, Madison with Nicole.

It was immediately clear when we picked the dogs up that they were comfortable and happy in Nicole's home. They seemed to delight in playing with her own dog, Zoey.

We will leave the dogs with Nicole again in the future and will feel reassured to know they are in excellent hands....
Nicole was flexible with drop off and pick up and was extremely professional and thorough with her approach. We very much appreciated her style and certainly will recommend her to others.
I have a 2 year old 80 lb lab that Nicole watched for me for a week. He is full of energy!! Nicole handled him perfectly! Hopefully she will be available for our next vacation. I would recommend Nicole (and zoey) to anyone. Very kind, knowledgeable, and patient.
This is my dog's 3rd stay with Nicole, and again he came home a more than happy camper; swimming in the lake, hours of play time, walks on the beach, having fun with her dog Zoey, a bath before coming home to me, etc... I will again state that, I will not leave my boy with anyone else! If you really want your dog looked after properly, she is the safest bet I know!
Nicole is wonderful - my lab came home happy, healthy and tired from all the playing and attention Nicole gave her!
Maya, our Lhasa Apso, stayed with Nicole for three weeks when we were away on vacation. We couldn't have been happier with our decision!Nicole is an extremely caring host who loves dogs. It was the first time we were leaving Maya but Nicole's frequent updates and pictures greatly contributed to our peace of mind. Her house is beyond beautiful and we were happy to know that Maya was having her own vacation while we were having ours. We will definitely work with Nicole again in the future!
So great being able to leave my babies and know they are safe and comfortable. Nicole was very sweet and accommodating as well as her baby Zoey. The large fenced in yard was a plus for my high energy pups.
Nicole was amazing and is a true dog lover. She kept me up to date with pictures and videos of my girls. I have an older dog that needs medication and that was no problem for Nicole. They were clean and happy when I picked them up.

My two dogs had wonderful care and I will definitely use Nicole again.
We can not say enough wonderful things about Nicole and her dog Zoey!!!!! We had our dog stay with Nicole for over a week and she was absolutely fantastic! Our dog loved being with Nicole and we received pictures and videos while we were away. Again, Nicole is an amazing Dogvacay host and we will make sure to plan our vacations around when she is available because we can't imagine anyone else caring for our dog! She really is fantastic and you should have complete faith that she will care for your dog as if it were her own.
Dakota ALWAYS has a great time at Nicole's!!! Never a dull moment there.
A week before going on vacation, I found DogVacay and Nicole by chance. I was uncertain of what to expect, but I can't imagine finding a better place to board my dog, Bo, for the weekend! My request was confirmed quickly and Nicole was very flexible with arrangements. While I was gone, it was easy to keep in touch with her to assure that all was going well. Bo had a playmate in Nicole's dog, Zoey, and they all went to the beach. Pickup was easy and if I could rate Bo's stay any higher than a 5, I would. We'll definitely be requesting Nicole's services again. Thanks again, Nicole!

Bailey's stay at Nicole's was awesome! She was loved, exercised, played with, and groomed! Nicole is a kind, accommodating professional. I would highly recommend her services through DoggyVaca. Thanks so much Nicole. See you again & I will certainly recommend you to our family & friends.
Nicole went beyond my expectations. My dog and her dog played the entire time he was there. I don't even think he wanted to come home! He had lots of space to play inside and out, and he went on outings to the beach as well. She even made me a photo album of his time there, which was unexpected and meant a lot to me. She sent lots of photos and videos which was also much appreciated. I could tell he was having a great time, which allowed me to relax and have my own great time without worrying about him.
I HIGHLY recommend Nicole if you want the best possible care for you dog at a very reasonable price! She
