“Let’s have a puptastic day!”

Hi! I’m Nicole, since I was a young I've been surrounded by animals. From our own dogs & cats to the animals I raised while in 4-H. I’ve learned that every animal is different down to their personalities & habits. I've been pet sitting & walking dogs for the last 6 years through Wag & for friends and family. I’ve now worked with many breeds and different sized dogs, giving each the equal love, appreciation & dedication I do my own. I would love to share that commitment with your fur loves.

“Give every puppo a hug and a squeeze”

After close to 600 walks for canine clients, I've gained much confidence and experience to care for all kinds of puppos. Today I am a proud momma to a German Shepherd mix I adopted, and we're so happy together. Dogs are wonderful creatures. I often feel like we don't deserve such loyalty and undying affection. For all they do for us, I like to give back and remind them how much they are loved and appreciated.
