what we do


"Nicole has been helping take care of my dog Rickie Lee for the past year and a half. She is great with dogs and has taken wonderful care of Rickie, who is a shelter pup and is skittish around most people. Nicole knew just how to deal with her and they have become best buddies. She sends photos, videos and reports at every visit, which set my mind completely at ease. She’s honest, smart, fun, and follows directions precisely." Robert K. - Rickie Lee's Dad

We love Nicole as much as our baby dogs, Lulu and Izzy, love her.  Since the moment we met Nicole we realized that our dogs would be in great hands!  You can tell the genuine love and attention that Nicole pays our babies.  It is evident by how happy our babies are when they wait patiently by the window for their Nicole.  We trust Nicole implicitly with our dogs; we know that Nicole is intuitive when it comes to their care; Nicole takes great pride in the care she gives our girls."
