Maisie and Nando absolutely love their stays with Nicky, it’s a home from home to them, a little holiday of their own. We receive updates, photos and videos which is lovely. Maisie and Nando are always excited when we arrive and we know they’re taken good care of. Thank you Nicky.


Nicky has looked after our cocker spaniel, Mortimer in her lovely home several times in the last year. We are always very happy to leave Mortimer for overnight stays as we know he is very well looked after, goes on long walks and enjoys playing with her own dogs in the garden.
Nicky also provides a cat feeding service so we a go on holiday knowing that all our animals are safe and well fed. We also have chickens and she checks and feeds them.
Nicky is reliable, attentive, has helped us in a crisis situation with a calm and caring attitude. She is very flexible when we are making arrangements. And most importantly, Mortimer loves her!

Luna has been staying with Nicky since she was very young and always pulls towards Nicky’s front door when we get out the car! It is such a relief to go on holiday knowing Luna will be well looked after and have so much fun with the other dogs while we are away. Nicky’s knowledge of looking after and caring for dogs is extensive and we so look forward to receiving videos of her walks or a photo of her asleep tired out at the end of the day – it’s a great way to stay in touch and give us our 'Luna fix’ that day. We just know that she’s having the best time!

I would not hesitate to recommend Nicky to look after your pet – knowledgeable, caring and completely trustworthy. Thank you Nicky for all that you do when Luna is in your care!!


Nicky has looked after our dogs for a total of 10 years from when they were puppies. She is trustworthy, experienced and knowledgeable and she knows their funny ways and how to deal with them.
I trust her implicitly and I know that she would cope if there was ever a problem while I am away or working and she will always do what’s best for the dogs in her care.
I would highly recommend her service for boarding or day care. She cares for my dog as if he were her own and he is always really happy to see Nicky when he is dropped off.

Nicky has been looking after our dogs for almost 10 years and we really can’t recommend her enough. Nicky cares for Rosie and Ralph as if there were her own and it shows in their excitement when they hop in the car for their weekly visit or an extended holiday. Nicky is very experienced and treats each dog as an individual. Rosie is 13 and Ralph is 4 so they have very different needs which Nicky is always happy to accommodate. We get regular updates, photos and videos when we are away so we that don’t miss them quite as much! They always come back happy and contented and you can’t ask for more than that.

5* review.
My dog Harley loves going to stay with Nicky, I never worry about her when she’s there. She has such fun with meeting other dogs and good walks out.
I would highly recommend Home Animal Care.

Home Animal Care has been looking after my bulldog Luna for a few years now and I can’t recommend them enough! They are always very prompt and responsive in our communications. They are extremely attentive with Lunas needs, walks, play and cuddles! We often receive updates and photos too during her stay, which is always lovely.

They are highly experienced and knowledgeable in a home from home environment. As soon as Luna knows she is going on ‘holiday’ she is super excited which is so comforting, she is just as excited for her holiday as I am for mine ?? I can completely forget about my fur baby, knowing she is in good hands.

We cannot recommend Nicky enough. She offers a real home from home experience for the dogs she looks after.
Jessie, our Yellow Labrador is now six years old and has spent many happy holidays at Nicky’s home. As soon as we arrive at the door she can’t wait to jump out of the car and see her doggy friends. She isn’t the first dog Nicky has looked after for us and Maizie, our previous Labrador, adored her stays there too.
After her morning walk Jessie settles down in front of the fire until tea time!
Nicky is extremely competent and we feel she could deal with any emergencies that may occur with the dogs in her care, which gives us total peace of mind and able to enjoy our holidays without worry.
Nothing is too much trouble for Nicky and she sends regular updates and photos of what Jessie gets up to whilst we are away.
I’m not so sure she always wants to come home when we collect her!

I know that when Autumn is staying with Nicky she is going to be treated like one of the family and that Nicky will go above and beyond to make sure she is happy, safe and entertained. Nicky is great at keeping in contact if I am away for a few days and I get lovely videos and pics of Autumn having a great time with whichever furry friends have turned up to play. I can tell by the crazy tail wagging the moment we pull into the drive that she just loves being there.

We are the owners of Millie a very lively 2 year old German Pointer, who has been holidaying with Nicky now for over a year. She isn't the sort of dog that would be happy in normal kennels, but thoroughly enjoys her stays with Nicky in a home environment, in fact she gets really excited to see her and goes off without a second glance, meaning we can go away confident that she will be happy and well looked after.
We can't speak highly enough of the love and care She gives Millie while she is with her.

Our dog, Monty, clearly loves staying with Nicky. He is always excited when he realises we are on our way to her house and comes home fit and happy. Nicky is great to work with, professional and accommodating and we would have no hesitation in recommending her.

Claire & Monty


Nicky has looked after my dogs since 2011 and she has always been kind, reliable and professional.
She is very experienced with animals and able to offer sound advice when needed.
I can recommend her services without reservation and I have no qualms leaving my dog in her care whether we are abroad on holiday or just out for the day.

Nicky has been looking after our dogs for many years now and they always come home happy and healthy . They absolutely love going there and rush into her garden without giving us a backwards glance when we take them - fortunately they also seem pleased to see us when we return! We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Nicky to anyone who wants their dog to have a home away from home whilst they are away.

I can’t quite put in words how grateful I am to Catherine and Nicola for looking after my Boris. Myself and my husband travel a lot and when we go I know I am leaving him in the safest hands. He’s always excited to see them both and gets quite upset when he leaves. They are both wonderful people and great at ensuring my Boris is safe and happy. I can’t recommend these ladies highly enough. If you have any doubts, don’t because it’s wasted. Book with Catherine and Nicola and I’ll guarantee you won’t ever have to worry again about your beloved pet. Thank you so much ladies. Boris sends him love too.
