⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Heather P.

I adore Niki! She is amazing with our fur babies. She has helped us out on so many occasions, and is very flexible with our needs. She treats our babies as if they are her own... She is very detailed and I love the fact that we get daily updates and pictures. She makes sure they are loved and happy. I couldn’t ask for someone better to take care of my babies. She does drop in service and also she does boarding/overnights at her home. I have used both services thru her. She is friendly, professional and above all trustworthy. I feel so comfortable leaving my babies and have no worries when I am gone because I know they are well taken care of.

As safety is a major concern for families, it is also a concern of ours. We require a "Meet & Greet" with you and your pets prior to pet sitting job acceptance. All dogs will be screened for aggression and a client intake interview will be done.

References are available and all staff are background-checked.

Key lock boxes are a great way to keep you in control of your own house keys. Many clients provide a garage code or spare key instead.
