What My Clientele Have to Say
When our dogs stay with Nicole and her family we don't ever have to worry while we're on vacation, we know they're in good hands. I love that they treat them like their own and they get to stay in the house as if they were at home. Our dogs eat well there, they go for walks, play with her kids and other dogs. I hope she never stops doing this because it would be very hard to find anyone comparable!
I drive 27 minutes each way to bring my dog here because I know he’s well cared for and has a blast. My 1 year old pug Freddy has a LOT of energy, but always comes home from Nicole’s tuckered out and ready to relax! She is flexible with my schedule, understanding of Freddy’s needs and limitations, has never once cancelled or bailed last minute, and is always willing to take on additional requests such as giving Freddy eye drops or cleaning his wrinkles. Another great part of having Nicole watch Freddy is that he gets playtime with Nicole’s little kids, which is great practice and supervised exposure that he wouldn’t otherwise have. 10/10 would recommend.
Nicole (the owner) is absolutely fabulous, and her boarding service is tremendous. She's the only person and only place our cat likes outside of our apartment, and it has been a wonderful experience for her.
Obie loves Nicole - he’s always so excited to see her! And he seems to have the best days out in her backyard with the other pups because he always comes home exhausted. We are repeat customers and will continue to be!
Nicole is wonderful! Wonderful updates, beautiful home with a large secure yard, and she really made us feel at ease on our pups' first day at a new day care. She even went the extra mile by giving our muddy dogs a bath before we picked them up! And of course they slept like rocks after a long day of adventure. We'll definitely be visiting again soon.
I absolutely love this place and would recommend it to anyone looking for a daycare place without a ton of dogs and wants a more personal setting. My mini Aussie absolutely loves it. She has her own three dogs, two Border Collies and I can't remember the breed of the other but a real neat calm older dog.The owner has the best temperament I've ever seen, she loves her dogs and every dog that that stays there. I love the pics and accassional updates on how Ziggy is doing. Great place!
I cannot rave enough about the care my dog gets when he comes here. Nicole is awesome and super flexible. This has become my dogs favorite place ever he gets out of the car and waits at the door to have an awesome time. I am so thankful for Nicole and her boarding services. As a nurse with a super busy schedule i really appreciate the availability and flexibility and the high quality of care for my pet Not to mention my dog is so tired when i pick him up he gets loads of exercise that he misses. I highly recommend and I wont have my dog go to any other sitter!!!
The hardest thing about relocating from NYC to the Madison area was having to find a new sitter for Archie, my 6 yo GSD - Or so I thought, until I met Nicole!!! Nicole was incredibly flexible and accommodating on a very short notice, her property is a heaven for pups, and her own pups and family were just as welcoming and awesome. Archie had such an amazing time with the gang that I actually felt guilty when it was time for him to come back home! --- thanks again for being so great and we will be back soon :)
I love this place so much. I’m so thankful to have found such a great place for our Dog Raffi to stay while we are away. He even goes once a week just for fun now. We miss him while he is on his weekly play date day, but he loves it. The second he gets out of the car he forgets I’m even still there. Nicole is responsive and very understanding to each dog and families needs and wants for their dog! My dog loves her children. 5 stars!
Daxter goes here for daycare 2-3 times per week. It's perfect! Big yard with a fence. Other dogs to play with. And Nicole is amazing taking care of my (super) high energy puppy! Dax has such a good time playing with everyone that he gets sleepy and frequently comes home tired. And a tired pup is a good pup!
Dax is a little over a year old now, and a 75 lb ball of energy. He also has general (and separation) anxiety. But he has a blast with Nicole and her pack! He gets plenty of exercise and attention. It's not uncommon for Nicole to share some updates and pics throughout the day too, which is very much appreciated since we know he can be a handful and has anxiety issues.
Online scheduling and flexible pick-up/drop-off times are amazing. It really takes a huge amount of stress off in getting kids and dogs where they need to go. Plus, online payment makes things super simple.
Daxy has also had some overnight stays. For a boarding option, much like daycare...it's awesome! Dax loves the pack, which includes the rest of the family. Unlike other boarding experiences, Daxter comes home happy and tired. And we know he's not just alone in a kennel all night. He's in a home and happy.
Overall, my experiences have been EXCELLENT! Definitely would recommend to anyone looking for daycare or boarding for their furry ones.
