About Nicchi

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! I'm Nicchi,

I've been around dogs my entire life and am familiar with dogs of all sizes. Growing up I had 5 dogs in my home and am certainly experienced with a broad range of doggie personalities. I've also fostered dogs and my heart is full of love for all of them.

I currently live with my boyfriend and we own a 12 pound Pom named Peaches. She is very friendly to all dogs and would make a great new friend for your furry kiddo! We have a spacious apartment but I'm only accepting dogs of medium size or smaller.

I'm a student and spend most my time at home so your dog will always get lots of attention from myself as well as my boyfriend. The neighborhood is safe with plenty of places to walk and there's also a great dog park nearby that I take Peaches to often. I would love to meet your dog so please contact me anytime!

Nicchi and Peaches have a great spacious, lovely, and new apartment in a great area of Encino. The apartment is dog friendly, secure, and has a nice courtyard area for dogs. Nicchi and Peaches love to take walks around the neighborhood and there is also a nice park nearby.

Nicchi is a student and is home most of the time. She has a love for dogs and she has fallen head of heels in love with Peaches, her rescue.

She is able to give your pup or pup family special love and attention as she is limited to how many dogs she cares for at a time. I would love to book my Charlie for his next vacay with Nicchi and Peaches.
Sasha had an incredible time! All of the pictures and videos that Nicchi sent of her and her other playmates over the several days were awesome. I know that Sasha cannot wait to go back! Thank you Nicchi for everything!
Our first DogVacay experience and it was spectacular. We (especially me) are neurotic dog owners so leaving him with a 'stranger' was a difficult decision. It turned out better than any previous options we used (including pet owner friends). Nicchi sent texts with pics of Oliver almost daily and overall communications were excellent. The home is an apartment so there was no worries about Oliver being outside. He's 7 lbs and we are always concerned about coyotes and bobcats etc. In short, wonderful and we would do it again for next trip.
We are so glad we found Nicchi! Parker took to her warm and calm demeanor immediately. He also got along well with her adorable dog, Peaches!

This is the first time we booked with Nicchi and she took excellent care of Parker. She sent us lots of pics and updates. He was a very happy pup, even though he had a bit of a stomach issue. Nicchi handled it in stride. We are happy to have found her and will use her again without any qualms.
Nicchi was great! I received many updates about how my pups were adjusting and settling in. It brought peace of mind and allowed me to fully enjoy my time away. Both of my dogs seemed happy and calm upon pick up. I will definitely be using DogVacay and specifically, Nicchi, again! Highly recommend!
I was struggling because none of my friends could watch my dog over thanksgiving break. I was trying to find a kennel for him but I wasn't too comfortable doing that because I have never done it before. I suddenly stumbled across this website and thank goodness I found Nicchi. I was very new to the website and putting in all my information was so easy. I like how you can do a meet a greet before you go travel. Her and her boyfriend were so nice! Her dog is so cute and very calm! They got a long really well and they made me feel so comfortable. Nicchi was very flexible with my schedule. We were having issues leaving and getting back into town but she had no problem with anything and was very accommodating. She would send me texts and pictures and it was always nice to receive those. The next time I ever go out town I will send Rango to her, or if one of my friends needs someone I will recommend them to her! Thank you so much Nicchi.
Nicchi is wonderful! We felt at ease leaving our dog with her while my husband & I traveled during Thanksgiving. She updated us with pictures too! I would highly recommend & use her again! Thank you Nicchi!
Nicchi (and Nate) are the best. They treated our dog Bodhi with love and care and gave him the affection and walks he craves. She sent us a picture of Bodhi all settled in in her apartment. He didn't want to go home!
Our second stay with Nicchi and just as awesome as the first! Our baby was so loved and pampered he didn't want to leave. Highly recommend Nicchi to take care of your fur baby.
I had to find last minute dog sitting for my 14 year old pug. Since I had always had someone in my home because she's an adorable "senior", I was very hesitant to have her stay somewhere else. Thank goodness I found Nicchi!! She responded right away to my request for a meet and greet, had me meet her own pooch who is adorable, and made me feel completely comfortable leaving Pepper in her incredibly capable hands. I didn't worry for one minute while I was away and Pepper was loved, cared for and happy! I even got daily photos of her vacay!! Thank you so much Nicchi, I will definitely request you again and again.
This is my second experience with Nicchi and she has been terrific to work with and best of all, my two poodles love visiting her! Nicchi is very accommodating and communicative and has made me feel comfortable when I've used her services, both last minute. I would highly recommend her services to anyone in need of overnight stays or day camp.
Nicchi was wonderful with Scarlett and very accommodating. I would have her watch my pup anytime!! :)
A huge thanks to Nicchi for looking after our Benjie. He had such a good time staying with her and Peaches. We really appreciated the daily updates and photos, and it was very comforting knowing he was in good hands!
I was very happy with the updates Nicchi was giving me along with pictures of my dog. Definitely going back for more sleep overs :)
I was so pleased with my first experience with Nicchi that she was the only person I thought of to watch Dovina who is 17yrs. and is totally deaf.She takes medications that I trust Nicchi to give her. Nicchi is so loving and sent me photos so I could see how Dovina was doing. I recommend her highly.
I met Nathan and my pup Maddy was immediately drawn to him. He reassured me with updates and pictures that Maddy was having a good time while I was away. Would recommend to anyone.
We used Nicchi again while our apartment was being fixed after a leak. She was available last minute and was super flexible during our very stressful time. I don't know what I would have done without her. Knowing that we had Nicchi to trust alleviated anxiety. I'd recommend Nicchi to anyone who wants their pets in excellent hands.
We had to leave our pup for a month while we were out of town. Luckily Nicchi was awesome and allowed us to have a worry free time away from home. She sent us photos almost everyday. Whenever we asked for updates, she was very prompt to respond. Our dog really bonded with her dog Peaches. When we picked up our dog, she was happy and we could tell she had a great time.

If you are looking for someone to trust for a long term stay, I'd highly recommend Nicchi!
Nicchi is kind, loving and completely wonderful to my little dog, Oreo. She takes wonderful care of him and is really great about providing updates and pictures. She was very professional and thorough right from the beginning. I can tell that she has a true passion for this and her dog Peaches is so sweet as well! I feel so lucky to have found her and I'd recommend her to anyone!
My dog loved his vacation with Nicchi! Great communication, accommodating to my dogs needs, and loving care are just a few positive attributes that Nicchi has, highly recommended!
Highly recommended!
I am very comfortable leaving my dog with Nicchi. A very warm and friendly setting.
Very nice, professional, on time and loving toward the dogs
My dog had a great day with Nicchi. She was so kind and thoughtful. She sent me pics and updates throughout the day. I felt very relaxed at work knowing that my dog was doing well. He came home happy and tired. I highly recommend her. Will book her again soon!
A wonderful experience. I will use again often. Thank you.
We had never left our dog with anyone before so we were very anxious. Nicchi and Nathan were the third people we interviewed and we felt at ease the second we met the on our meet and greet.
Our dog is scared of dogs so having someone with no dog or a quiet dog was a must. Their dog Peaches didn't scare our dog. She is so mellow and it made us feel so much better. We booked our night stay immediately after our meet and greet.
We got many photos from Nicchi and Nathan. They are excellent at communicating.
We already booked our next dog vacay with them.
Nicchi and Nathan were great. We were able to hire them last minute and they took great care of the pups.

We had a short stay, and the boys didn't need to be walked, but Nicchi and Nathan did it anyway. They were on time for the meet and greet and also for drop off and pick up.

Definitely made our lives easier for this last minute stay.

Thanks Nicchi and Nathan!
Nicchi thank you for caring for Milo and keeping us up to date with the sweet pictures you took of him.
Xena dawg had an awesome time at Nicchi's! I don't think she wanted to come home. Xena was happy, healthy, and spoiled just the right amount. I'd use Nicchi again for sure!
When Olaf first got to Nicchi's apartment he was excited to see Peaches their dog. I felt very confident in leaving Olaf after meeting with Nicchi and seeing her warm and sweet interaction with my puppy!
Olaf was happy and well taken care of by Nicchi. He had a great day and night in her care. He loved playing with Peaches and loved Nicchi to pieces.
I would bring Olaf back to Nicchi anytime and highly recommend her!
Dovina appeared to have a great time. She was all smiles when I picked her up and I could tell she was treated well. Nicchi was very diligent in following all the instructions on her special diet and I am quite pleased. I definitely will book her again.
Freddie and Ginger got along great with Peaches after a meetup, even though they're nosey pups with a lot of energy. Nicchi was a kind and courteous host and my dogs liked her, and she clearly loves dogs as well. Nicchi sent picture updates and was even able to accomidate my last minute reservation. I would absolutely recommend her services.
