Nola is an excellent dog sitter. I never have to worry about the wellbeing of my dogs or my house. She goes above and beyond the call of duty. I highly recommend her and will request her when I need a dog sitter! - Cheryl A. (Las Vegas, House/Pet Sitting and Day Sits)
Nola was great with my girls and respectful of my home. She spent time with my two dogs, and made sure they were happy and cared for. I came back to a clean house like she was never even here. She dealt with unexpected issues with grace, which I really appreciated. I will hopefully get the chance to have her as a sitter again in the future! - Kim D. (Las Vegas, House/Pet Sitting)
I contacted Nola very last minute, and she was very accommodating. I needed her to sit with my sick dog during the day, so I could go to the office. She is obviously very experienced with dogs. My dog took her to right away, and I wasn't worried about him while I was gone. - Marcie J (Las Vegas, Day Sitting with extreme Separation Anxiety)
Nola did an outstanding job with Izzy! He is a 18-year-old dog and sometimes needs special attention. She was on time, took time to get to know our dog, and asked all the right questions about his care. She was attentive and provided us with updates throughout the day to relieve our separation anxiety. She took Izzy for a walk in the afternoon and was very caring. I would highly recommend Nola and will use her again. - Scott B. (Las Vegas, Day Sit)
I am happy to find someone that is compassionate that I can trust with my dogs. Nola is great with them and bonds with the dogs effortlessly. She sends me pictures and gives me regular updates. We will be using her regularly. - Marissa A. (Las Vegas, Walking)
Nola was the perfect dog sitter for my 2 dogs! She did everything as we asked and spent so much time with them. She updated us every day and always communicated. If we had a question. I would definitely use her over and over again. - Kristie L. (Las Vegas, House/Pet Sitting)
“Our dogs love when she comes to visit. She is clean, communicative, and oh so wonderful to our dogs. I can’t recommend her enough!” - Caroline H. (Las Vegas, House/Pet Sitting)
"Nola is simply the best animal sitter I have ever experienced. I know that sounds overly grandiose, but it’s true. And I have had many. Not only did she stay with my dogs in my trailer, but she knows her way around a trailer so I didn’t have to worry about that aspect of it. She literally took one of my dogs to get spayed while I was gone. Even after the first option was not treating us well and she had to leave there she found someone else on her own and took care of the whole thing. She made my vacation exponentially better knowing that she was on top of everything. she truly has an animal soul as well. Mine took to her immediately and was sad that I came back and they were not going with her." - Adam K. (RVer)
"I travel a lot. Nola has looked after my Baja rescue, pit mix, Amu, many, many times at the campground that is my home base. She has also stayed in my travel trailer while I was away and I trust her implicitly in my home and with my dog. Amu has some separation anxiety and she always does fine in Nola's care. I would trust her with any animal due to her lifelong profession and education in zoology. She's worked extensively in zoos and rescue facilities around the world. Nola is my ‘go-to’ person anytime I travel.  Highly recommend!" - Tina H. - Baja
"I highly recommend Nola to anyone in need of a trustworthy and reliable dog sitter. She is not only professional and experienced but also genuinely caring and dedicated to providing the best possible care for your furry friend. I will definitely be reaching out to Nola again whenever I need someone to look after Tiger."  - Michelle S. - Thailand
"Nola has looked after my senior pit mix and my 2 cats at several boondocking sites over the years. She is always calm and kind and knowledgeable. My dog has some separation anxiety and she did fine in Nola's care. I would trust her with any animal, from a horse to a hamster." - Lissa S. (RVer)
Should you choose to book me via the Rover app or have found me through other means, rest easy knowing that I have passed the Rover background check. 
I believe that some of the best examples of my lifetime devoted to animals are my books. Older books are humorous, talking about my own adventures, and misadventures, working with animals. Later, many guidebooks were written in hopes of encouraging people to volunteer with global animal rescues, scientific research programs and more. These days my publishing works focus on activity books, often geared toward life science and natural history which can be used for fun, relaxation or education (aka brain candy).
