HEnlO, my name is Nicki (she/her) and well, I LOVE animals of all shapes and sizes!
I am available to care for your little loved one(s) in your home (home-sitting), or in mine (home-boarding).
Our animals are not just animals, they are family. I can completely empathise with the anxiety of being apart from your pet - it's never easy for both human and animal, therefore it's always my goal to put both human and animal at ease. It's important that YOU are involved in every aspect of your pet's care, therefore it will always be my aim to send you pictures and updates, providing you with consistent reassurance. Your little loved one(s) will be in the best care and company with me - and that is a promise.
When I am not busy snuggling cute animals, you'll find that I am dedicated to my other passions. I am a current MSc student with the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland and I work in the mental health crisis response field. I am blessed to be able to work from home, therefore I am very lucky to have little paws around me as my colleagues - the BEST little supervisors! This means that I have the opportunity to be flexible and stay with your little loved one(s) in their own home - or mine.
My heart is so full of love for animals; I can't wait for my heart to grow even further with love when I get to meet your little loved one(s).
I do not have my own transport but can access transport in an emergency - therefore I am more suited to home-stays, home-boarding.
Plants are pets too. I will sing to them and make sure they watered to allow them to grow and flourish while you're away!
What's included in the services you offer?
I offer home-sits, home-boarding (with walking inclusive in both options).
How long are the dog walks or how many do you offer per day (home-sits, home-boarding)?
Dog walks can be up to one hour per day - depending on their needs.
How many dogs can you board at the same time (home-boarding)?
Up to 4 dogs (preferably of the same family) are welcome to stay with me in my home. I do ask that you let me know in your enquiry if your dog is NOT suitable to board with another dog from a different family.
Will you be home with the dogs all the time (home-sits and home-boarding)?
YES! I work from home full-time, therefore I will be at home with your dog(s) at all times. They are welcome to act as my supervisor and make sure we take breaks for playtime and T R E A T S.
What is your home like (home-boarding)?
It is a 4-bed house - a very comfortable lived-in style home. You can be sure your dog(s) will feel safe and secure here. No home is complete without having animals around.
Who else lives in your household (home-boarding)?
There are 3 adults living in the home - all passionate animal lovers. We also have a yellow-bellied turtle (who lives in his tank).
Where are the guest pets allowed to sleep (home-boarding)?
Wherever they like! As I mentioned, we have a very lived-in cosy home, well used to having muddy paws around!!
What is your backyard like? Is it fully fenced? Are your gates safe and secured (home-boarding)?
We have a garden with tons of things to sniff. It is fully fenced, safe and secure. We also have a gigantic green field in front of the home if they require a longer run about.
I am incredibly grateful to Nicki for the amazing care she gave my two dogs while I was away for a week. From the daily pictures and pupdates to her wonderful attitude- she gave the girls a home away from home. You can tell how much she adores dogs and does her very best to make them as comfortable as possible. I really cannot recommend her enough. If I could give ten stars I would!
- I can administer a variety of medications (oh my goodness, the number of times I have had to get creative - they sure do have some clever tricks to avoid medication!!) - I currently live with Chester the cat (very docile [he sometimes thinks he is a dog] and comfortable with other animals) and Lizard the turtle (lives in his tank), so please keep this in mind when considering my home as an option for home-boarding. - I am available for short-term and long-term house sitting. I just ask that you have a strong WIFI connection so that I can work from your home.
