Meet the Owner


Nicole Bowdish

Hi! I’m Nicole, the proud owner of Cloud 9 Canine Dog Walking & Pet Sitting! My love for animals was fostered from a young age. I remember moving with my family to Vicksburg, Michigan when I was four years old to a 30-acre property. Soon, the land was populated with an assortment of pets of all kinds. Throughout my childhood, I raised and cared for pets of all shapes and sizes from geckos and rabbits to goats and sheep, and spent many evenings inside watching Animal Planet.

Caring for my first dog, Morgan, greatly deepened my love for dogs and pet care. Shortly after, I began volunteering as a dog walker at the SPCA of Southwest Michigan. I later worked as a kennel attendant and in 2018, began providing pet care services for fun and was quickly enamored by dog walking and pet sitting. Not long after, I realized there is a strong need for reliable, customized pet care in Southwest Michigan, and, well, the rest is history!

“Nicole was recommended to me by my sister Luci, and I am so glad she did. I liked her as soon as I met her prior to my trip, and she was super helpful in getting my booking done right, as I didn’t know how to schedule properly. :)) She looked in on my two cats every other day and sent me videos of her interactions. One of my cats is pretty shy, but she sent a video of her on the floor playing with both of them using the laser pointer. I’ll definitely book again with her. I felt that Cheezit & Quill were in great hands!”
