Hi, I'm Nicole and I'm here to help you with all your pet care needs! :)

I am a full-time dog lover and have owned/been around dogs, cats, and guinea pigs since I was young. You know that person who's usually deep in conversation with the pets at gatherings and parties? Yup, that's me!
I currently pet/house sit and dog walk full-time and have previously worked as a mobile dog washer where I got to meet many different doggos; giving them nice warm baths, ear and eye cleans, and coat brushes to keep them looking their best.
I would love to help you keep your fur babies company and take care of them while you're busy or away -- whether it is bringing them out for walkies, making sure they're fed and well-hydrated, giving them extra cuddles and keeping them engaged and stimulated with playtime, and ensuring they are safe and happy.
Here's a list of some of the services I provide, please get in touch for rates based on your specific needs as the Pawshake system only allows us to show base rates:
Walks: Unable to take your doggo out for a walk? I can help! We will walk nearby your area and surrounding parks. I am happy to suit your dog's energy level, needs, and walking route.
House Visits: Stuck at work and need someone to check on your fur baby and tend to his/her needs? I can help by visiting your house (once or twice a day) to check on and spend one-on-one time with your fur baby. I can help to feed them (can also cook/meal prep if required), take them out to the toilet/clean the litter, and keep them company with extra cuddles and playtime.
Doggy Day Care, Home Boarding, House/Pet Sitting: Going away and can't bring your fur baby along? I can help look after your fur baby either in the comfort of their own home or in my home without the stress of being in a kennel/cattery. I will make sure they are well-fed and kept hydrated; if your pets need freshly cooked food, I can be their personal chef! I will also make sure they get their daily walks, and include lots of playtime to make sure they are engaged and stimulated. Your fur babies will also be showered with extra cuddles and love so they feel safe while you're away.
Your home will also be well looked after, I will keep it looking immaculate by cleaning up any poop or mess that the pets make, help you receive any mail you're expecting, water the plants, take the bins out if it's bin day, turn lights on/off to help make your house look 'lived in' while you're away. I am happy to follow your home routine and rules, anything that your pets are used to.
My home is a 3x2 surrounded by beautiful parks, has a cozy indoor pet play area, and a fully secured backyard. Your fur baby will be able to roam both inside and outside, and sleep indoors overnight. Think of it as a comfortable home away from home for your fur baby! You and your furry loved one are welcome for a home viewing. Alternatively, more photos are available upon request.
Overnight stays in your home or mine are also an option if you need me to keep your fur babies company overnight.
I have a car so I can travel around and transport your fur babies if need be for grooming appointments, vet visits, etc. Additional fee may apply for locations outside of Harrisdale and surrounding areas.
If your dog has any other pet care needs, or if you have specific requirements, or even if you have a cat or any other pet, I would still love to help! I'd be happy to try and customise the services to suit, so that we can do what's best for your furry loved one.
Before any booking, I’d love to first arrange a free no-obligations Meet & Greet with you and your pet. This is a great way for us to get to know each other and for you and your fur baby to see if you're comfortable with me.
Our pets are family, so I know how important it is for you and your fluffy loved one to be able to trust me first before you decide to book.
Thank you for reading and I look forward to hearing from you! :)
Nicole was prompt to respond to our enquiry, managed to fit us in at a short notice. Both Stara and I received a warm welcome during our meet and greet!
Nicole’s place is a beautiful doggo holiday retreat and she keeps you updated with plenty of photos and videos throughout the day too!
Highly recommend her and will be a returning client in the future. Thank you! x ❤️
Book Nicole for absolute peace of mind when needing someone to look after your pets! My partner was very anxious about the idea of having a stranger look after our 2 little cats but we were going away and couldn't take them with us so we set up a meet and greet with Nicole. My partner was quickly relieved after meeting Nicole, as she was very kind and professional and made us feel at ease that our cats would be well looked after. She made sure to keep breakfasts and dinner on schedule as well as entertained the cats every visit. She sent plenty of photos and videos and allowed us to enjoy our time away knowing that our cats were well looked after. Will definitely be booking again when we go away on our next trip!
