About Niki

Hello and welcome to my page!

My name is Niki and I live in a quiet, clean bungalow in Minsterworth ( outskirts of Gloucester ) with my cat, Zhen. I have a large, secure, fenced garden with rural surroundings.

I have an animal care diploma which included subjects such as ( but not limited to ):

Welfare

Enrichment

Transportation

Health and disease

I usually foster rescue dogs and walk dogs for charity (which has been a joy and a privilege!)

Foster dogs have included everything from puppies to disabled dogs staying at my home, some having to be medicated and/or needing enrichment tailored to their needs. The average stay is usually around 2-4 weeks.

I am now looking forward to expanding my professional experience.

I would prefer crate-trained dogs as I use a crate overnight ( for safety reasons ).

Being house-trained once over 4 months old is essential (unless there is a reason for it, disability, etc).

I work from home so the dog wouldn't be left alone for long unless I had an appointment.

Only me and my cat Zhen at home, no children or other animals.

What can I say..... Niki was absolutely lovely and our little dog seemed so at home and relaxed with her. Couldn’t have asked for a more capable dog sitter.

We were looking for someone really last minute, so her fast communication was a huge help. I was able to meet up with her on exactly the same day as first contacting her. And on our return, we got stuck in 3 lots of traffic, meaning we were a little late, however she was patient and really kind about it.

Thank you so much Niki. Will absolutely be back with Smudge again :)
