About T. Nichol

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Big or Small, we love 'em all!

We started using DogVacay a couple of years ago so that we could make sure, while we were on vacation, our dogs were well taken care of. Just like you, we decided to do a search for alternate boarding resources because, it just didn't sit well with us that our dogs would be confined to a kennel, in a potentially stressful environment, while we were out having a good time. We knew that in order for us to thoroughly enjoy our vacation, we had to know our pets were just as comfortable as we were. DogVacay gave us that reassurance so, in return; we decided to open up our home.

Our home has a medium-sized, fenced in back yard that your dog(s) will have access to at all times. The exterior door leading from our laundry room has a built in pet door that allows dogs to enter and exit our home at their leisure. (If your dog is unfamiliar with using a doggie door, we will train them. Most dogs get the hang of it with in the first couple of minutes.) We promise a kennel free environment allowing your dogs to have free run of our home. They are welcome to sleep in our bed and will be loved as if they were our own. (We guarantee oodles of belly rubs and back scratches too!)

Weather permitting, we like to take the dogs for long hikes and even swimming at a nearby lake. We have a pup-mobile set aside specifically for all our dog outings. If you are comfortable with us transporting your dog(s) and allowing him to go "off campus", this is certainly something your dog can enjoy during his stay.

As a courtesy, pictures/videos will be sent to you daily so you can see just how comfortable your dog is while he is under our care.

Our dogs love meeting new friends. They grew up in a doggie day care, have never met a dog they didn't like and actually enjoy showing new dogs around our home. In no time at all, your dog and ours, will become the best of friends.

We are very hands on dog owners. We travel with our dogs, "talk" to our dogs and spend all our free time with them. We are extreme home bodies, so our dogs get a lot of human love and attention. We enjoy taking out the dog toys and playing with our dogs as most people would their kids. Your dog will receive the same love and attention here at The Ruff Life as we give our own.

We are constantly aware of the safety of the environment when walking our dogs, while they are in our home and while they are either inside (or out of) our fenced in yard. We make sure to see other animals, children or cars before our dogs do so that we can prevent potential accidents from occurring. We never leave food out and always separate dogs when feeding.

We keep our home clean and our pets clean. So, if your dog stays with us 5 nights or more, we promise to give him a complimentary doggy bath before your arrival. That's just one less thing you'll have to worry about when you get home :)

Thanks for taking the time to read our introduction. The concern you have for your dog and his comfort level is the same concern we have for ours. We promise to foster your dog(s) with the utmost care, love and responsible eye that we know you would. You can put your trust in us.

Thanks again...we look forward to hearing from you.

BE THE PERSON YOUR DOG THINKS YOU ARE :)

We can't express enough how much we appreciate Nichol and Eric for always being willing to take care of our pup and loving on her! Highly recommend these sweet folks!!
Nichol and Eric are amazing as always with our pup, Hayley! They are such sweet people and Hayley always comes home tuckered out and happy as can be when she's stayed with them!
Myley has the best time when she goes on vacation with T. Nichol. I have been more than pleased with how well they take care of my baby. The pictures of her having fun playing are icing on the cake.
