About Nicole

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We have an extra large property (5500 sq feet) with a double lot fenced in. Tons of play area and plenty of area for them to rest and relax. We will continue any training that you are doing with your dog. We will help puppies with housebreaking as well :) We also live close to the dog park and will make fun doggie "field trips" to the park on nice days! We also recently installed a doggie shower so we can bathe dogs who get stinky or dirty during their stay with us! Check out the photos :)

Our Newfoundland Bubba had an awesome time with Nicole and her dogs. She sent updates and pictures which was great and he seemed very happy when we came to pick him up. There is a ton of space for the dogs to play and you can tell Nicole really puts good care into her dogs. Thanks so much, Nicole! I am sure Bubba will be looking for a place to stay again with you in the future.
Kaylee, my 50-pound Beagle/Lab mix, has stayed with Nicole several times. Nicole does a great job making Kaylee feel welcome. Kaylee is always super-excited when I drop her off for her dog vacay, and she comes home exhausted after having so much fun playing with the other dogs in Nicole's big backyard!

Nicole has been very flexible, in terms of scheduling drop-off and pick-up times for Kaylee. She's also been willing to accept last-minute reservations.
Our pups had a great time!
Our husky, Bruce, seemed to have a great time at Nicole's. She sent daily pics and updates! She even said she loved having Bruce (rarely happens)! Thanks Nicole!!
This was great! Super fast response to our somewhat last minute request. House is huge and very clean. Easy to get to. Note baby and toddler in residence but the toddler clearly has been taught well how to stay safe around dogs, he didn't even blink when we rolled in to pickup. Family couldn't be nicer. Fenced yard. Loved that she sent several photos. The dogs were tired and dirty from playing after two days, which was a good sign! They slept and slept at home after baths. We'd definitely use them again.
I used Nicole for an in-house pet-sitter. She arranged a meet and greet a couple weeks before my trip with the pet-sitter, Sarah. It was nice peace of mind to let her know in advance of my elderly dog's special requirements and routine. During my trip I was sent updates to let me know Mugsy was doing well. Sarah did a great job and I highly recommend her and Nicole for any pet care needs you may have.
Fergus is a very energetic pup who loooves to run! Nicole has the greatest space and host dogs for active dogs! He loves staying with Nicole (and we think Nicole kinda loves him too)
We have had a great experience with Nicole. Max is always happy to go and play in the big back yard! We have used Nicole three times now and always very responsive and easy to work with!
Nicole and family were awesome! She checked in regularly to let me know how things were going over the 2 weeks I was gone with texts and photos. I could tell my dog had fun, and wanted to be close to her temporary family. We'll definitely be back.
Excellent care of my dogs. Felt very secure leaving them in her care.
We scheduled a dog walk with Nicole and she was great. So professional! She texted us lovely pictures of our dogs and they seemed calm and happy when we returned. We are glad she offers this great service!
Wonderful experience for Neko. Neko is usually a little shy and anxious around new people, but she joined right in. Highly recommended.
Our puppy was so excited to go to Nicole's. She and her kids were wonderful with him. He loved the big back yard to run in and got along great with her dogs. We appreciated the photo updates each day.
Nicole is the first person we have left our new puppy Alfred with. We could tell we would her as soon as we met her. She responded quickly each time we contacted her before the visit, during and after. She sent us a few pics of Alfred shortly after leaving showing us he was happy and having a good time. We will definitely be reaching out to have Nicole watch our buddy again the next time we need help!
Fergus LOVED hanging out and playing with Bowser and Yoshi. He came home happy and exhausted. I appreciate Nichole's ability to handle our enthusiastic pup :)) He can't wait to visit again!!!
Nicole was terrific. She was accommodating with drop-off/pick-up times, and took great care of our puppy. She sent updates during the day along with pictures to show how our dog was doing. After a couple of days my dog was running to Nicole to greet her in the morning, so I know he enjoyed his time there. I highly recommend Nicole!
Wonderful! Our 2 dogs had a great time during their stay and we loved getting picture updates during our trip. Nicole was very responsive and flexible, would definitely stay again!
Nicole did a wonderful job with our elderly dog. Choco is 15 years old and Nicole provided a safe, homey place for him to stay while we were away for a couple of days. DogVacay is a nice way to go, as it is less stressful than a typical kennel, especially for an older dog.
Nicole was great and was very flexible with her hours. She took very good care of Avi and gave us updates while she had her. And Avi seemed to really enjoy hanging out with her dog Bowser! Thanks again!
Nicole was great! As soon as we dropped out fur baby off he took off and didn't say goodbye. She kept us updated. She will be our regular sitter from now on. Thank you Nicole!
