About Nikki

I'm an artist who has been pet sitting since as long as I can remember and can't see myself ever not doing it. In between performing and being on set, I love walking dogs (there's a few parks to take your dog by my bungalow in West Hollywood, if you choose to have your dog stay at my place) and helping pet owners when they go away by staying at their place, feeding their lovely little ones, and giving them their oral medication if needed. I have two cats in my place, one is a four year old siamese and the other is a two year old tortoiseshell (both the sweetest cats ever) so I can also help with your cats if you have any. I'm flexible these days and would love to help anyone out because your pets all need the best care when you're away!
If you need your dog to stay at my place, I prefer medium to smaller dogs because I live in a cozy bungalow. However, if I am staying at your place, checking in, dog walking, etc. I do not mind any size.

My prices vary and are subject to change depending on what services you require and what works for everyone. I'm flexible :)

-Boarding in my own home: $50
-Me staying overnight at your home: $60-$70
-Just check ins (2-3 a day): $30-$40
-Just dog walking: $20 (30 mins) $25-$30 (60 mins)

We can always work out a custom quote, as well.

I've had dogs, cats, and all other sorts of animals my entire life. I've rescued many and have involved myself in a plethora of animal charities. I recently adopted an Elephant that I provide for out in Kenya, who I love with my entire heart. My goal in life is to spread love, assistance, companionship, and a little more love! :)

Nikki was great! She was communicative while we were away, was not afraid to ask questions, gave a lot of love and care to our dog and two cats, and left our house neat, clean, and odor-free. Most importantly, our animals all seemed happy and well-adjusted when we returned, which is our proof of the attention and love she gave them.
Nikki was great as always with Zooey!
Nikki has come and watched my new puppy Henry a few times while my husband and I were at work. She has such a warm and friendly energy and my puppy took to her immediately. She sent me photos and videos throughout the day as well which definitely brightened up my workday. I will be using her again and 100% recommend her!
Nikki was great! Luna had a great time staying here. I really appreciated how she was so responsive and that she sent me pics and videos of Luna every day. Will certainly look her up again!
Our Pomeranian, Roscoe had the BEST time with Nikki and her fam!! This was his first time staying with someone, and he clearly had a fantastic experience. He was calm and happy when we picked him up, which meant that he was loved and cuddled for his six day stay! Such nice people!! Nikki sent us texts and photo updates - so nice to know that your pet is being loved and spoiled while you're away. We're looking forward to having Roscoe stay again - I can't say enough nice things about our/his experience. THANKS, and see you next time!!
I am hesisant to recommend Nikki bc I want to be sure she is ALWAYS available for my little nugget - she was THAT good. I've only used doggie vacay a handful of times because I always feel more comfortable having a friend watch my pup, but I was in a bind with a last minute work trip and thankfully found Nikki. She was by far better than any other Vacay sitter I've used in the past. I was grateful for all of the updates - literally every morning I'd get photos and/or videos and every evening get a full recap of her day.

Nikki was also very friendly and very understanding of my work sitch - I am lucky to have found someone so accommodating.

I will definitely be using her again!
I've booked Nikki twice (so far) to cat sit for my shy boy Fargo. She's been great with him! She's very attentive, responsive, and reliable. I appreciate the videos she sends along.
Nikki was very sweet, but unfortunately ended up being 45 min late to our appointment and my dog chewed some things up while under her eye. But a very sweet girl.
Nikki is always so great with our dog - Zooey is actually excited when we pull up to Nikki's house and is always wagging her tail.
Nikki was great. She and Chumley really hit it off and he was looking forward to going back. I'm sure we will be back.
Nikki is awesome! Piper told me she had a great time :) I'd highly recommend her, and I've already booked her again!
NIKKI was AMAZING, so easy to communicate with, wonderful with my senior dog. She took great care of him and let me know all along the way how he was doing. Couldn't ask for a better dog sitter / temporary dog mother...
Nikki is wonderful! She was incredibly accommodating to my last minute request and so warm and sweet. Loved the updates and the care she puts into tending to four-legged beings. She was smart, knowledgeable and I'd have zero hesitation having my fur children stay with her again!
Nikki took great care of my pup while I was away and made the meet and greet and drop off very easy and convenient. I picked Zooey up after 5 days away and she was happy as a clam cuddled up on the couch. Would definitely use Nikki again ;)
Nikki is wonderful-conscientious, responsible, caring and kind. She is reliable and even when our travel plans shifted, was quite amenable. Love her!
Nikki was absolutely amazing watching our dogs Chewy & Ollie! We can't wait to book with her again!

She accommodated our meet and greet and vacay last minute, was super communicative and even followed up a few days later to check on the pups and make sure they were doing good.

I highly recommend Nikki to anyone looking for someone loving, thorough and kind to watch their dogs.
Nikki was able to come through last minute and watch my pup. If I could give her 6 stars I would. She kept me updated and at ease while she had my baby. I loved that she sent me pictures and was there at the touch of a button if I needed to reach her. Nikki is so trustworthy and I felt so good about leaving the love of my life with her. I highly recommend Nikki and will definitely use her again.
