You can tell that Nikki and her husband are dog lovers as soon as you walk into their house. They live in a nice house with a fenced back yard where your dog will play with their adorable dogs Sushi and Chibi. Nikki stays home so your dog will have undivided, quality attention and care. She also likes to take the dogs for walks during the day and to the beach! They will even share the couch and bed with those who love to snuggle.
Your pup will have a great vacation with Nikki!
This was the first time our pup Grady had slept overnight outside of our home. We were worried dog parents, knowing that he may be feeling anxious, but Nikki was so warm and welcoming, it seems like he felt right at home! She sent us adorable pictures while we were away, which calmed our nerves and warmed our hearts. We will be booking again, that's for sure!
Awesome! Sent videos of the fun my pooch was having.
My dog came back skinny, sticky, and with major scabs. She lost Seamus on a hike and another hiker found him and, thankfully, returned him, and she lost his leash. It took almost a month to get the leash back and she never offered to bring it to me, even though it was her fault. Not a good experience :(
