Meet the Owner


Nicole is the sole owner of Dakini House LLC dba Home Alone Pet Service. She purchased HAPS as an established business from Joyleigh, who has been a great friend for over 20 years. Joyleigh introduced Nicole to petsitting as a career in 2012 and then graciously allowed her to act as the office manager while she learned the ins and outs of managing a growing team. We are forever grateful to have her expertise remain in our reach while we continue grow and care for the furbabies of more and more of Tallahassee's pet lovers!


Nicole grew up with a cat in her crib and since then has rarely lived a day without a furry critter by her side. She surrounds herself with exotic and domestic animals and is active in the animal fostering community. She has experience caring for cats, dogs, birds, reptiles, amphibians, farm animals, and even some very unique exotic animals!




We specialize in pet sitting and daily dog walking. We have proudly served Tallahassee's pets since 2005.
