About Nichola

Hi my name is Nichola and I have been around animals all my life and could never imagine a house without any. We have looked after many animals all ages and sizes and love to treat them as one of the family. 

We currently have a 9 year old beagle an 18 year old cat a rabbit a tortoise and marine fish. We are a laid back family and we allow the animals to roam the house freely. We have an 9 year old son who is amazingly gentle with animals.

We live in a house with a walled in grass garden completely secure. We like to go for long walks especially across the fields.

I currently only work one day a week so I am around all day to give your pet my full attention.

When we look after your pet they will be treated as family and we will follow the rules you have set for them at home regarding feeding walking routines etc. I am happy to follow any diet requirements including cooking if needed, we have had dogs before that only ate chicken.

I am happy to take and send as many photos as you like if that's on walks home visits or when they stay with us.

On home visits I am happy to visit as many times as you need staying for up to 30 minutes or longer on request. I am happy to feed, walk and let out in the garden. clean litter trays and have a good play with your pet when visiting.

On walks i will walk for an hour unless more is required by request. I will walk your dogs on lead at all times. I am happy to walk on a one to one or to do group walks. i am happy to do more than one walk a day as many as is needed. My dog walks can be between 30 minutes up to 90 minutes depending on what is required. I can walk up to three times a day.

I am able to offer collection and drop offs if needed.

I will only board one family at a time.

I am home pretty much 24/7 maybe popping out to shop or school run so pets never left for more then 30 minutes.

I allow pets to sleep where they would originally at home so if that’s in the bed great as love a good cuddle.

Nicola and family were perfect for our Cavalier Archie, we had two nights away and I had no problems leaving our beloved pup with them. Nichola provided plenty of pictures and updates, thumbs up from us 👍🏼

I was a bit nervous of leaving Ollie with someone new. Nichola was amazing and didn’t mind all my messaging and asking for updates. I think Ollie had a good time with her and was always happy to go in and happy to come back as well. He seemed to have some rest time as well, which I appreciate since he’s only 1 year old and needs plenty of sleep during the day. Already rebooked :)
