Pet sitting services in North Bend, Washington
North Bend, WA 98045
Hi everyone! I'm Niki and I own Valley Pet Services.?
My boys (ages 23 & 15) and I relocated to the Snoqualmie Valley from Montana in 2013 to be closer to family and to Bellevue College/University of Washington.
I graduated from PIMA-Seattle's Veterinary Assistant Program in May of 2014 and while I loved what I was learning, once I got out into the field the actual hands-on work left me unsatisfied and overwhelmed. There were FAR too many euthanasia procedures for my heart to handle. I desperately wanted to work with animals but not in the way a brick and mortar veterinary practice provides.
I was very fortunate as not one, but two perfect employment opportunities presented themselves over the next 2 years. I worked as the Office Manager for Dr. Robert Hogan, DVM., from April of 2015 to July of 2017. I was also fortunate enough to work as an assistant manager at Pooch Play, LLC. (an off leash dog socialization group) from October 2015 through June of 2017.
The wagging tails and peace of mind I am able to provide to other animal lovers and pet parents in my own community is a dream come true. I am a firm believer that it's never "just a dog" and it's never "just a walk". Our pets are members of our families and in being able to care for them I have found the excitement, joy and fulfillment I was always seeking in a career.
It is my honor to provide Snoqualmie Valley pet parents with exceptionally high quality pet care combined with phenomenal customer service!
I could not have asked for a better person to watch over our home and pets while we were thousands of miles away.
My husband and I just got back from a week long trip out of state and I am still trying to figure out why I didn't reach out to Niki years ago. Niki is hands down the best animal caretaker you could ever ask for. She provides multiple "report cards" throughout the day on such a consistent basis with photos of each of the pets and a cute note about how they are doing. She truly is amazing, I can't say enough good things about her. I am looking forward to using her again in the very near future.
What an awesome pet sitter!!
We have three cats and were gone for about 10 days. The cats were well taken care of, and Niki is really communicative! She sends daily updates (and pictures of our animals) so we did not worry at all! Niki is amazing, and a pleasure to work with! I totally recommend her, and I will absolutely call her the next time we need someone to take care of our pets!!
