About Nicole

I love all animals and I have experience working as a dog walker, dog sitter, and doing cat care. That was my job while I was in university. As a pet owner I know how hard it can be to try and entice your friends and family to take care of your pets while you go away yet again ;) I can also provide dependable care for all your pets, plants, and home while you are away.

I am a working professional with four fur-children of my own (2 cats and 2 dogs). I am very open to helping in anyway I can - mail collection, plant care, etc. I do work full time (8:30-4:30) in Surrey with alternate Fridays off. If your home is close enough to my work I can pop in during my lunch hour.

For dogs, I would take them out for at least 20 minutes before I leave for work and a few times after work including an hour long walk (depending on the size and abilities of the dog). I used to have an elderly cat (18 years old) so I am also very comfortable administering medications and am great at following instructions provided for me. I am open to pet sitting in different areas around the city as well. I'm happy to answer any questions you might have to decide if I would be a good fit for you :)

Nicole is terrific! She has taken care of my cat a few times and is reliable, professional, and personable. Most recently I had to cut my trip short and change plans and Nicole was extremely flexible and communicative. During a very stressful time I felt secure knowing that Nicole had my back and that I could trust her to take care of my furry best friend. I will absolutely continue booking with Nicole in the future and highly recommend her!

Nicole was professional, kind, and accommodating in caring for our cat while we were away. Our condo was also clean when we got home and everything in order. Some of the morning visits were a bit later in the morning which is out of routine for my cat, but I'm sure she had multiple visits to do as this is peak pet sitting time. She was very responsive via text which I appreciated. We had to cut our trip short due to the Covid travel advisory and Nicole was kind enough to reimburse us for the remaining days, which she didn't have to do. This speaks volumes to her integrity as a sitter. She was very flexible with key exchanges too. I would definitely recommend her!

I am confident in my ability to handle all sizes and breeds of dogs. I've had experience dog sitting for an anxious pit bull and we got along quite well. I trust that owners will be able to tell me about their animals so I have no hestitations around this. As I mentioned I have experience dog walking which was either about 4 off leash on the trails in West Van or 2 on leash. I realize that off leash does not work for all dogs/areas of town so those details can be discussed. I also have cat care experience and had to administer a few medications to my own elderly kitty.
