Doggy day care walker in toowoomba!

Wilsonton, QLD

I'm a wife and mum to a 5 yr old boy. I've always had a keen interest in animals and have been working in the animal industry for 11 years. I understand that pets are like family and should be treated that way. I have a great knowledge for all breeds of cats and dogs and birds. I will send daily photos and updates for peace of mind. I take a keen interest in animal enrichment, including daily walking. I believe it's an important part of owning a pet to help keep them healthy and happy.


About This Listing

I have a fully fenced ( 6ft on two sides and 4ft on the other), medium sized grassed yard with a large undercover area. Have inside laundry for sleeping arrangements if required. They are able to have the freedom of a whole house to explore, plenty of comfy spots to sleep and the attention they deserve. All windows and doors have screens on them. I have scratching posts, comfy cat beds and indoor/outdoor dog beds. Plenty of enrichment activities such as Kong toys

Nikki took wonderful care of my girls, visiting twice a day to feed and walk them. She also gave them a brush and sent twice daily updates. I’d definitely use her again!

Nikki took extra time and care to ensure our birds were safely in their house before night time. She also ensured our property was secured and that everything was set for the birds the following day, including checking their feed and water and making sure everything was clean and tidy. I have no hesitation recommending Nikki to care for any animal.

Nikki was amazing. She is super sweet and so caring, I felt really comfortable and confident leaving my kitten in her care. Her home was very friendly and safe. She was also kind enough to text me photos and updates as to how my pet had settled in.

If you are looking for a reliable, honest, trust-worthy and experienced pet-sitter then Nikki is your best option! Not only has she got a decade of experience working directly with animals at RSPCA, she is an animal lover herself and believes in treating all animals with love and respect. As a family friend, Nikki has looked after many of our animals over the years and we know we can enjoy our time away from them knowing they are in good hands. With all her experience, Nikki can easily recognise when an animal is in any pain or discomfort, fearful or anxious (having owned an extremely anxious dog herself) and how best to treat or interact with them. I recently went away for a month holiday and left my chickens with her during this time; one of my chickens had a very sore leg and I was really worried about her well being and left Nikki with a million instructions on how to look after her. When I came back from holidays I hardly even recognised them! The chicken with the sore leg had improved a lot, they both were in fantastic condition and Nikki even went the extra mile and bought them a bale of hay to pick at/ sleep on! Its so lovely to know that while you are away enjoying yourself that your animals are getting such good quality love and attention - definitely makes me feel less guilty about leaving them! I've known Nikki most my life and could go on and on about how great she is with animals but why not find out yourself... I promise you wont regret it!

I would recommend Nikki to everyone if they needed their pet looked after! Nikki looked after our little pup banjo while we went away to get married! We were super happy that he had a lovely person watching him and playing with him ... I was so hesitant to have our Banjo looked after by someone other then us as he is such a hyer- energetic pup who sleeps in the laundry of a night! But this was no trouble for Nikki! He loved the attention he received! Will definitely use Nikki again! She is fantastic and so friendly! :) Thanks again Nikki! xx

I found Nikki and her family the ideal place to leave my spoilt toy poodle for her first weekend away. Nikki let Zena use her house in the same way she operates at home and I got updates often. I was able to go away confident that she was safe and unstressed. I would not hesitate to give her highest marks and will use her again soon. I have to use this reference system instead of review due to the difficulty of getting the site to accept me.

I booked Nikki to watch our Pug x Laylah for a few hours. She was very friendly and welcomed Laylah with open arms. She has a young son who also enjoyed spending time with. Nikki has a very clean,safe and secure yard. Laylah absolutely enjoyed herself and I would highly recommend Nikki to anyone!She also sent me texts and photos for my peace of mind. If I could give Nikki 6 stars,I would. Thank you Nikki!!!

Nikki looked after our four chickens for three days and I required her to provide clean water for them and ensure enough food was available to them. Nikki was only too happy to help. I was very happy with how the chickens were when we returned, it was obvious that she had taken good care of them. Their water and feed bowls appeared clean and full assuring me that they had been well cared for. Nikki is a lovely, friendly and caring person and it is obvious that she has all the right qualities and passion to look after anybody's pet. I would not hesitate to ask her again and would definitely recommend her.

Nikola is friendly and professional. Very flexible with her time and her rate is low. I dropped my cat off and picked him up a week later clean, happy and well fed. So good to help a local, who's as motivated as Nikki

Wow!! Just wanted to let other people looking for a reliable and caring pet sitter know that Nikki is just amazing. Nikki went above and beyond when I had her look after my bird and cat when we recently went on holidays. Just an amazing person who seems to connect with animals.

If anyone is looking for the most perfect pet sitter I can absolutely recommend Nikki. She truly cares for your pets as if they were her own and for me that is peace of mind to know you can go away knowing your pets are cared for and happy.
