About Nicole

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi Puppy!

My name is Nicole and I'm an avid dog lover and owner who understands the struggle of finding a sitter whom you can trust to keep your precious fluff ball happy and stress free while you're away.

I live in a large 1300 sq ft hard wood floor apartment where a dog can roam freely during the day and I have a flexible job that allows me to work from home if need be. There are numerous dog parks near me and I have a list of special places I like to walk the dogs (that fresh luscious grass and clean air is hard to come by in LA!).

On the weekends, I'm an active person that loves hiking, kayaking, and the beach. When a dog is with me, I make it a point to include him/her in all my weekend activities There's no such thing as too many walks or too much fun!

Nighttime can be a stressful time for the little ones, but do not fear! I have plenty of couches, doggie beds, pillows, and blankets for them to cuddle up with depending on what your dog fancies. Your dog is even free to cuddle with me if he/she wants!

To keep you worry free during your trip, I will also send daily updates about your little pooch along with pictures and videos!

I also have a dog of my own named Tofu who travels between me and my mom but when she's here, it's a true puppy party!

Thanks for looking! Have a pup-riffic day!

*Note: I am currently not accepting dogs that are NOT potty/house trained. Dogs must also be up to date on all their shots and be on flea prevention medication. Also, boarding rates are for a 24 hour period, if your dog's stay extends significantly beyond the 24 hour period, there may be an additional charge. Thank you!

Nicole is ready to welcome your pup into her spacious apartment with loving arms. After growing up with dogs and sharing her traveling pup, Tofu, with her mom she knew she wanted to have dogs around more often.

With an active weekend lifestyle she is the perfect person to accommodate your outdoorsy pup. If you're worried your pup won't have enough room in an apartment, think again! She has a large bedroom with some serious lounge quarters for the furry guests, a kitchen that could easily be a separate dining space, and an open living room where everyone can hang together.

On some occasions your pup may even get to check out her girlfriend's place which comes equipped with a pool and a large yard to run around in. Not only will your pup be in a responsible and caring environment, but they are also sure to have lots of fun. Searching for piece of mind during your travels? Send your pup to Nicole.

Fantastic! My dog, Minna, loved her!
Nicole was an amazing sitter for my dog Sammie! She was thorough in asking me questions to make sure she was prepared if anything happened while I was gone. She sent LOTS of mindful and well documented photos, and even wrote out a report card for Sammie detailing the highlights of the weekend! I would love for her to watch Sammie again.

Leo LOVED his time with Nicole!
Nicole was great, we dropped off our pup and she went through a comprehensive checklist to get prepared for their weekend. I left very comfortable with his visit.
Through the weekend she took Leo on lots of walks, and sent us numerous updates (and pictures!).

We came back and were sent home with an exhausted (in a good way!) and happy pup, and an informative report card, and some treats. Really great experience, highly recommend!

Nicole was such a fantastic dog-sitter, I don't even know where to begin...From the beginning she was happy and excited to meet us and our dog, and it was apparent that this is something she loves to do. She sat down with us and asked all the right questions, even the ones I wouldn't have thought of but were relevant for my dog (i.e. how does he feel about dog parks? well, he hates them...) Saying goodbye to my pupster is always difficult but I felt so reassured leaving him with Nicole. During our vacation she updated us daily with pictures and summaries about what they were doing and how he was holding up. It was amazing. She took my dog so many places he loves, like the santa monica walkway, and on long walks every day. I was showing off all the pictures she sent to whomever would look. In addition, when we went to go pick him up, Nicole gave us a baggy full of some new treats that he absolutely loves, and, get this, a doggy report of how awesome their time was together! How adorable is that? It was so sweet I'm saving it in case I ever create a doggy scrapbook or something equally silly. Thank you Nicole, I know for sure Dexter was happy to stay with you and we will definitely be seeking you out in the future.

Nicole is Awesome! Not only did she take Kiki on a field trip to the park, she also brushed her! Nicole will treat your pup as if she's one of her own ??
Nicole is the best! We had a great meet and greet and she was able to see Kiki's personality and how I handle situations when other dogs are around. Nicole is a true dog lover and sent me tons of pics during cuddle time......which I feel is all day! I travel for work and Nicole has been very understanding and flexible regarding my requests. I've booked her for four trips this month.....just shows how happy I am with her service ??

Tootsie had such a great time with Nicole and didn't want to leave when I picked her up! She received the most excellent care and was super spoiled with daily trips to several dog parks in the area, endless belly rubs and lots of love:) I was a little nervous about trying dog vacay for the first time but Nicole really put me at ease with a fantastic one-on-one chat about Tootsie's care during our meet & greet and kept me up-to-date with photos and texts about Tootsie's weekend. She even provided Tootsie with 'thank you' treats and a report card on her weekend. So sweet!! I would highly recommend Nicole to anyone looking for a host!
