About Nicole
My name is Nicole. I'm new to Mad Paws :-) I am a fit, healthy and caring 43 year old professional woman. I adore animals, especially dogs and cats, and I am a keen walker who is happy to walk dogs twice a day (if required).

I've previously owned pets including my beautiful dog Kenickie who passed away on 3 October, 2016 at 15.5 years old (featured in my profile picture). As you can imagine, I miss him greatly (and going for a walk is definitely not as fun without a doggy friend!) so I really enjoy meeting new families and caring for their animals.

I also know how expensive and stressful it can be to put pets into a kennel when going away so am looking forward to offering my services to save you both stress and money.

I enjoy gardening and love a clean and tidy environment. I also am very aware of the trust and respect needed in a house-sitting environment and have experience in doing a great job. I've have also looked after work colleagues pets while they've been away overseas. This included looking after my former boss's dog Micro on three occasions when she and her family travelled to Mexico and France.

'To whom it may concern. Our dog Micro was lucky enough to be minded by Nicole whilst my family and I were on holidays in Mexico (2014) and France (2015). We returned to a content and well-groomed dog who had clearly been well cared for and loved. In my view Nicole has a deep and genuine affection for animals of all kinds. She is gentle and caring whilst also having the organisational skills to stay on top of routines. I would happily ask her to look after my dog again at any time'. Marion Potts

I understand the importance of animals in people’s lives and know how to enjoy their company and provide the necessary care required. I am also experienced in administering medications.
I also have a current police check.

Nicole was excellent , my dog loved her. Even after our return he went to check if she was still there. She updated me twice a day as to how my dog was doing. This helped me to enjoy my holiday. She sent photos everyday.

Nicole was amazing. She looked after 3 of our pets and they loved her. She gave us updates everyday with photos. I would definitely ask her to come stay again if needed.

Nicole looked after our little female terrier whilst we we away for one week. Our dog is older and blind, and Nicole took extra care to make sure she understood everything that Katie required. I felt at ease leaving Katie under Nicole's care - she was wonderful! I would easily book and recommend Nicole for any future pet sitting needs!!
