About Nichola

We have a lovely Labrador, Luna, who is a great companion, very friendly and loves everyone with two and four legs. We love our daily walks on the Ashdown Forest and go out twice a day. We usually go for a longer walk in the mornings and a shorter one in the afternoons, which can be flexible as I work part-time from home. In between walks, Luna and dog friends can curl up dog beds in the kitchen and in the sitting room and they can go out and play in the garden.

Growing up with a dog and cat, and with many extended family and friends with dogs, I have been around dogs all my life. My children (now teenagers) have grown up with cats and then we decided to get a dog of our own, hence Luna, and we are thrilled to bits having her in our lives. We love having a dog and would love to have a second one but don't want to commit to one at the moment.

We still have our cats, who have their own space in the utility room with a separate entrance to the front. Dogs have the run of downstairs and the garden in the back. All works well if needing to be separate.

Luna had a litter of puppies in the summer which was both seriously hard work and an utterly amazing experience. Having dealt with seven lively Labrador puppies in the house, I think I can handle just about anything!

    I can't recommend Nickie more highly. My 10 month old Labrador must have thought she was in heaven. Two walks a day on the forest and the lovely Luna to play with all day. Nickie is very conscientious and caring, and kept me updated with fun pictures during the two weeks. Janie

    Thank you so much, it was such a pleasure to have Chilli to stay. What a lovely, lively, happy and well behaved pup she is! She settled in immediately and Luna loved having Chili to walk and play with and she was very easy to have at home. A lovely young lab and house guest! Nickie

    It was my first experience using a dog sitting service, and as my dogs are not always the easiest, I was apprehensive. However, after an initial pre-booking meeting, we agreed a plan and I felt reassured. Nickie is easy to talk to and clearly loves and knows dogs. My dogs were very well looked after and clearly had made new friends during their stay. Thank you!

    Thank you so much! It was an absolute pleasure having Charlie and Lola to stay. They are lovely dogs and were very happy and well behaved, they settled right in and got on really well with Luna. Very easy little house guests!
