We are grateful for our pet families.

Nicole has the perfect puppy co-mom! She comes mid-day to let our puppy out, feed him, walk him and play with him but most importantly is a sweet source of attention and love. She's reliable and dependable and very communicative. My only hesitation in writing this review was that she might get all booked up! – Catherine S.


Nikki is amazing! Our puppy's love her so much. Like most puppy parents they are my babies and I have a hard time trusting just anyone but Nikki is so good with them, you can tell she genuinely loves spending time with them and cares for their well-being even pointing out when Harley or Levi aren't feeling well. -Manny


Nicole is a wonderful loving mother to both her son and of course her dog. We are so glad to have had her care for our own two very large dogs. We were able to have a peaceful time away from home because we trusted her implicitly. She earned that trust and far more by going above and beyond. On the final day of her dog sitting both dogs attacked a porcupine! She was very calm but remained caring through the whole process as she not only removed hundreds of quills from the backs of their throats and all over their faces but then took them to the vet for us as well. We highly recommend her for your dogs. I'd you're looking for the best dog sitter, look no further. You've found Nicole. -Shannon B


First, let me say we've never used Fox and Hounds before. Our kiddos always stayed with their vet and we didn't see any reason to change that, until we booked a last-minute vacation over Thanksgiving and they were already full! So we gave them a try and we are so glad we did. Second, NIKKI IS AMAZING! She checked in with texts, photos and videos at every visit, followed my pages of instructions and was even able to help with a small injury that one of pups got just days before we left. We loved that our dogs were able to stay home and be comfortable in their surroundings and still get amazing care. Nikki is our go-to from now on, for drop-in visits and for weekends away! Can't say enough good things about her- and both my dogs just love her! -Sarah D


I can always count on Nikki to check on my dog when I have a long day at work. My dog is always so happy when I get home. -Reyna


Nikki is awesome! she makes my boys feel special. -Hal M


Zeppelyn and Luke were much loved and cared for while Nikki was pet sitting. Thank you for keeping the pups happy and healthy. -Cindy B


I don't know what I would do without Nikki! She has been wonderful & caring with my Luke every time I use her services ... he was an abandoned dog, going on 11 yrs I have had him & I could not be happier to have found her! -Analis


Nicole was great. We were just gone for a weekend, but I was nervous about leaving Chopper because I am a helicopter dog parent. Yep, that's me! 
Nicole sent me videos and tons of pictures while we were gone and it brought me sooo much comfort to see him happy and well taken care of. And she doesn't just come and sit, she plays with him!! He was well tired in those pictures and that's great for me to see! 
Thank you Nicole! -Amy


Nikki watched my little 10 week old puppy on such a quick notice. I was in a bind and asked her the day before to watch him most of the day. She was awesome taking him out to play all day! She is really good with animals! I was really impressed with the care she gave my puppy like it was her own! I will continue using her! Thank you so much Nikki for taking care of my dog! -Maria


Nikki is the best! She is so great with our rambunctious Boxer puppy! She is reliable, responsible, and truly loves her job! We had her stay overnight at our house and she was so good about giving us updates with pictures! We are so grateful to have found Nikki! Wouldn't trust anyone else to take care of Bailey! -Ana


We recently started bringing our furry baby Bowdee to meet & play with other puppies. Thank you so much Nicole for making it an awesome visit every time. When Bowdee comes home he's so relaxed, carefree and happy. Videos and pictures of the day's fun times with other puppies makes my heart sing. Thanks again!! -Angela


Nikki dog sat our shih tzu this summer and was excellent. We don't board our dog because she is very antisocial and does much better in the house. Nikki gave us several updates during our trip and even brought homemade treats for our dog. She was responsive and professional; we will be using her again. -Matt


Nikki is awesome! My pug- children are very happy and relaxed when I come back from a trip. She always lets me know what is going on too which helps me relax when I am away bc I know they are well taken care of! -Jane


Nikki did a wonderful job taking care of our fur babies while we were out of state! We have two spoiled shih tzu's and boarding did not work for us. Nikki sent video and photos everyday which was comforting for us & our babies were happy, healthy and waiting for us in the comfort of their own home went we returned!! I will definitely use Nikki again & recommend her service!! -Cindy


Nicole dog sat for us twice this summer and we couldn't be more pleased than we were with her services. We don't like to board our dogs-prefer that they stay in our house amongst their familiar surroundings and she was more than happy to stay overnight at my house since the dogs have never been left alone overnight.

One of my dogs is currently in the last stage of his life-I was concerned that it might be time to put him down while we were gone but she handled the "what if" situation perfectly. Gave her the # of a mobile vet to come to my house if it was time to put him down. Surprisingly, my dog is still hanging in there.

He lost control of his bowel due to his cancer advancing so we have had to start taking him outside to pee no more than 3-4 hours apart, including overnight. Nicole had no problem taking him outside in the middle of the night. Who would do that?? She's amazing to do that so my dog wouldn't pee on our hardwood floors.

She sends me pictures and videotapes of my dogs several times a day and it brings comfort to me. I will use her again the next time we are out of town.  -Catherine D


I contacted Nikki the day before Christmas Eve since our original dog sitting plan fell through, and she was very flexible with when we needed to drop our dogs off since we were coming in from out of town. She sent videos every day, and I would definitely recommend her! -Kristi D


We had a really great experience and Nicole took such great care of Mia. Scheduling was easy, the meet and greet went very well. We received pictures and updates of Mia several times for a one day stay. Nicole also took Mia for several walks. Mia is an indoor dog and she definitely received a good amount of outdoor exercise time and indoor down time. Nicole has a young son who also loves dogs and got along very well with Mia. Nicole and her husband are such nice couple; warm and genuine. We feel comfortable that Mia is in good hands. Mia was happy and very relaxed when we picked her up. Nicole was also great about accommodating our schedule as we were running late on pick up.

We did not have a good experience boarding Mia at a kennel and found Fox and Hounds Pet Services. This was the first time we tried out a dog sitter through them. I can't say enough about how wonderful Nicole was with Mia. For an in-home, loving, no-crate experience – it was a great stay for Mia and will we definitely be boarding Mia again with Nicole!
Thanks, Nicole for taking care of Mia! -Judy K


Nicole did a great job with my new puppy! She made me feel comfortable while I was at work and my pup loves her! -Kimber

Nikki was wonderful with my two dogs. She came over for a meet and greet before and was very responsive the entire time while I was away. She sent picture updates and my dogs loved staying with her! I'll definitely be using her again.-Shaunna S.


I totally give 5 stars to Nikki. This was our first time to have our pup spend the day with someone new and she was clearly taken good care of. Nikki sent pics and videos of my pup having a great time at her house and playing with the other dogs. I had requested a pick up each day and she was right on time. Thanks a million Nikki :)) Jeanne S.


Nikki took excellent care of Bentley. I especially appreciated all the photos and videos she shared during his stay. Also, it was very sweet of her to bathe him before we picked him up! We will definitely use Nikki again in the future. -Lorraine


Cooper has high anxiety about being left behind and about being in the company of other dogs, so we are always nervous about leaving him with someone new. We had our meet-and-greet during a busy time (summer vacation), yet everyone in the household (doggie guests as well as humans) were all calm and peaceful and everything was well organized. We received photos and videos of Cooper throughout our vacation which reassured us that he felt comfortable and was enjoying his stay. Nikki has a great courtyard area that allows dogs to enjoy the outdoors while staying cool in the shade. We would definitely use Nikki's services again.
