“If your pup is happy, I’m happy! :)”

My name is Nicole, I’m 30 and I love, love, love dogs! I have had different dogs all my life and did go through veterinary technician schooling. I feel like when I’m around dogs, pet sitting or spending time with my own, nothing else matters. I am a very hard worker and will treat your pup with as much love as I have!

“I am your best friend’s “second” best friend!”

Hey there! I currently live with and love our GSD and lil Aussie-doodle puppy - our house knows all about high energy! Our favorite things to do are to go on long walks, sniff posts, & run around in our backyard in Canonsburg. Growing up with a dog in my life, I knew four legged friends can bring smiles. I have met so many cool dogs through this service over four years; it has brought such joy to my life! I cannot wait to meet your best friend and I’m hoping I can be their “second-best- friend”!
