ABOUT US

Pet First Aid & CPR Certified in Bel Air

My name is Nicole Wilson, and I’m the owner/operator of Your Pet AuPair. I am the proud cat parent of Violet & Ivy and Mimi (that’s my grandma name) to my daughter's dog, Daisy Mae.

 

I’ve lived in Harford County for most of my life and have almost always shared my home with cats and dogs.  I’ve always had a very strong connection with most animals, but it wasn’t until Daisy Mae came into my life that I realized how important that connection was to me.

 

I’ve had many jobs over the years: server, real estate agent, sales person, personal assistant, etc., but it wasn’t until I started pet sitting that I knew I had found my calling. I’m truly passionate about my work and I wake up every day ready to get my day started, knowing that I’ll be greeted by all the sits & wiggles I could ever desire!

You can see all of our certifications and associations below.  Continuing my pet sitting education is important to me; I can't be the best if I don't actively pursue knowledge and training.

  • Kim

     

    Hi! I’m Kim and I’m so happy to become part of Your Pet AuPair! A little about myself: of course I’ve always been an animal lover, that goes without saying! I worked 4 years at a Veterinary Clinic as a Veterinarian Tech, and eventually expanded my duties to become a Boarding and Grooming Supervisor. I have training in caring for hospital boarders and animal behavior. ​​

    I have shared my home with a vast menagerie of pets over the years and now look forward to walking yours!

  • Melanie

     

    Hi, I'm Melanie. A lifelong animal lover, I am currently the pet parent of 3 fabulous kitties; Phineas, Lucy, and Elliot. In the past we have been happy to call dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, and hamsters a part of our family. I have volunteered as a dog walker in the past with the Humane Society and am currently a foster parent for Best Friends in Harford County. I look forward to working with you and your pets!

    When I'm not working with animals, I am an independent agent for a small family-owned travel agency called A Scoop of Magic.

  • Linda

     

    My name is Linda and I have lived in the Bel Air area most of my life.  While I have had dogs, cats, guinea pigs, fish, and birds, my current furry family consists of 4 cats, 2 rabbits, and a horse.  Over the years I have taken care of a wide variety of pets from lizards to horses.  I have volunteered at the Humane Society of Harford County and have been a pet sitter for numerous friends.  For the past few years, I have spent much of my time at a horse farm.


    I enjoy spending time outdoors and am looking forward to meeting your pets and keeping them active and engaged.

  • Jamie

    My name is Jamie and I am a native of Bel Air. I grew up in a house full of animals and I am lucky that my 3 children have had the same opportunity. I have cared for a wide range of animals such as fish, birds, hamsters, cats and dogs, and even horses.

     

    I enjoy being active and look forward to helping your furry family members stay active during the day as well.

    My family also owns and operates Stitch Sensations.

  • Claire

    Hi, my name is Claire and I grew up right here in Bel Air. I am currently a student at the University of Maryland and I am studying Public Health Science.

     

    I have had pets all my life, especially dogs, and my family  currently fosters dogs. I have a lot of experience pet sitting, I walked dogs and provided overnight care while I was in high school.  I’m looking forward to working with Your Pet AuPair and loving on your pets!

  • Dr. Shannon

     

    I was born and raised in Arizona and always knew I wanted to be a veterinarian. I graduated  from the University of Arizona (GO CATS!) and headed to Orlando to work as a Marine Mammal Intern at EPCOT at Walt Disney World. After that, I worked as a vet tech while taking conservation biology classes. While I was working to get into veterinary school, I also discovered my love of pet sitting.

     

    I have been in the veterinary field since 2003 and I received my DVM in 2011. I have worked in general practice and also doing end-of-life care services since graduating. In 2013, I helped launch the New Jersey Lap of Love Veterinary Hospice location and went full time with them in 2016. When I moved to Maryland in 2020, I decided to carry on my calling in end-of-life care to my own business - Eternal Pawprints Veterinary Hospice. I know what it’s like leaving my own cat of 17 years at my vet’s clinic to say goodbye. It was very difficult and I know that I am making a difference and fulfilling my call as a veterinarian by helping our pets in their last days.

     

    When I found Nicole and Your Pet AuPair, I instantly loved her and her company. We are both Fear Free certified which means we take pet's stress and behavior to their environment very seriously. Her and her company's dedication to servicing this community is exactly what I am looking to be a part of.  I look forward to meeting your pets and sharing in  their cuddles and kisses.

  • Par

    My Name is Par, a retired LEO, a veteran of the USAF, the owner of 2 German Shepards, male and female, Rico and Eevee.

    I am a longtime Harford County Resident, circa 1975, in Maryland since 1970.

    Our house has always had a dog in the home from a Maltese to a Lab to German Shepard(s).

     

    We met Nicole when we needed to have  Rico and Eevee taken care of for 

    a weekend at the house (we take our dogs with us everywhere). 

    All went well and we were elated with Nicoles service, struck a conversation and here I am.

    I look forward to meeting your pup.
