About Nichole

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a pet lover! Aren't we all?

During my last career I was nicknamed the dog girl because the owners of the company would all have me watch their dogs... they sometimes even got to go to work with me... bed, toys, and all. I have a VERY well-behaved and friendly non-alpha dog and a cat that loves to curl up in a hiding place and be "lost" for most of the day. I've owned up to three dogs at a time and have quite a bit of experience with medical attention (if needed). Let's just say, my little guy was in love with our vet and would make any excuse to go see her. He was also an adrenaline, adventure boy as a puppy and loved to play with random animals even when they didn't want to play with him.

Our property is 5 acres on a quiet street in Appling and has plenty of run room. We also have a very large, concrete floor barn (with dog beds) that can be used if I need to go run out for a bit. Dogs are allowed in the house and have certain furniture that is ok to be on but we do not allow our dog on the bed (we built a fancy, and expensive, one for the animals!) or on the couch. There are quite a few dog toys to play with and Tucker is good about sharing them. I will feed dogs separately as a rule since that's an area where some dogs are a bit more protective.

I go on a walk or run early morning and sometimes in the evening. Most likely, if we have dog guests, we will spend a lot of time outside. Afterwards, if the woods were part of the adventure, we get some good belly-rubbing time to look for possible ticks. It's rare that I find any but I am cautious about it.

I also have experience giving medicine that is enjoyed and not enjoyed and have a vet tech friend on speed dial for any questions that come up.

I love cuddling with any and all dogs and am definitely an attention giver. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Nichole is an excellent choice as a pet sitter. She is patient and does not discount the importance and eccentricities of "special needs pets"--like mine!

She clearly understands that pet sitting ranks up there with babysitting for both the pets and their human families.

I have no hesitation recommending her as a pet sitter.

Nichole has always had a love for animals. She is very patient and loving with them. Nichole is even tempered with all animals even in the most trying of situations. She is reliable and trustworthy.

Nichole is an animal lover and to some people she often thinks about how animals think and feel a little too much. I guess you would say simply that she is really loving of furry little creatures and very attentive to their needs. I think Nichole would be an excellent person for this opportunity as this is something she is very good at, has patience for, has much experience doing in the past and simply enjoys being around animals as often as possible.
