    Nicole – Kennel Assistant II

    Nicole joined our team in 2018 for the summer, while on break from college. Nicole is good with dealing with dogs, she has rescue experience and has been around other animals as well growing up on a farm. All the dogs warmed up to her immediately. She has attended college at Tarleton State University in Stephenville, TX. We hired her as seasonal part time, but this turned into a permanent part time job for her. You might have the opportunity to meet her dog Hoshi a Husky American Eskimo mix when she comes for daycare. Hoshi is just an incredibly happy social girl that wants to have fun. Nicole is also an exceptionally talented photographer. Please visit her pet pictures posted on Facebook at “Sit By My Side Pet Photography”.

    Our Goals

    It is part of Companion K-9 Dog Services’ goal to provide your pet with love and companionship while they stay with us. As a guest, your pet will be monitored so we quickly acquaint ourselves with your dog’s routines. Our caregivers will play with, care for and provide TLC throughout the day. Your cherished pet will have ample time to socialize with other canine guests as well as other members of Companion K-9 Dog Services’ team. To maximize your dog’s experience, we provide an abundance of toys, playtime, walks around the property, light training to earn rewards throughout the day, music and a resting spot as needed!
