About Erica

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm an Assistant Dog Trainer with Synergy Dog Training. I specialize in caring for small-medium sized dogs and provide personalized care in a calm and relaxing home away from home environment. By default, your dog will instantly become a part of our family and will have heaps of fun! They will receive plenty of stimulation, exercise, socialization and rest. You will receive daily photo updates as I enjoy, and have a knack for, dog photography where I'm able to tap into my creative side and capture the amazingness of dogs while making their humans happy too!

*Requirements for Boarding /Daycare:
1. I only accept small to medium sized dogs (35 lbs. and under). All dogs must be social with other dogs, housebroken, neutered/spayed, up to date on all vaccines and on a flea prevention.
2. A Meet & Greet is required, as making sure that I am the right sitter is my top priority.
3. After the Meet & Greet, I require one half-day of Daycare (@ the standard Daycare rate). This is to ensure the environment is a good fit, and to help ensure that your dog will acclimate quickly and have a happy, stress-free stay. This initial day of Daycare is a four-hour stay. An overnight stay will also be required for new clients requesting longer overnight stays.


*DOG BOARDING: Straightforward, 24 hour pricing starts when you drop off, and you pay only the overnight rate for each 24-hour period your pet stays with me. Just pick up by the same time on their last day.
$55 per night (2 years and older)
$60 per night (Under the age of 2)

*DAYCARE: A great option to consider if you have plans for a day trip, a busy work day, or if you just want to socialize your dog. Daily flat rate. Weekdays only. 7:30 am-6:00 pm. $45 per day

Board & Train: Custom program based on your dog's needs and your goals. Prices vary.

Puppy Socialization: Prices vary.

*Holiday Rates: During the holidays, Daycare/Boarding can book up quickly so please book in advance. Two nights minimum stay required on Boarding.

We look forward to meeting you!

Why I love dog sitting:
Dogs have always been an important part of my life. I've owned 3 Pugs (Lola, Coal and Sampson), a Pit Bull (Z), a Basset Hound (Virginia) and a Terrier rescue mix (Roger). I enjoy meeting and helping people and sharing my home with the fury love of their lives. The unconditional love and affection that dogs provide is contagious and nothing brings me more joy than bringing a smile to their faces.

Erica has watched my pup, Duncan, several times now. She is great with him and keeps me updated on what they are doing and how he is doing with other dogs. I can tell Duncan gets a lot of one on one attention and when I bring him home he is happy. Thank you for taking such good care of Duncan!
This review is long overdue! After we adopted our pup in September, we had to leave a month later for a vacation we had already planned. We were so nervous about leaving, because we didn't want our dog to think he was being abandoned again. We know our dog hated the typical kennel environment, as we had taken him to doggy day care several times and each time he was anxious on edge when we got home. I started looking at home boarding and saw that Erica was a full-time dog sitter. This made me feel so at ease knowing she was dedicated full-time and could be there throughout the day to keep an eye on all of the dogs. Booking was a very easy process and Erica sent us a list of everything she and my pup would need for his stay. I really appreciated her organization and how professional she was. Her home is an absolute paradise for dogs, with a nice backyard and plenty of room to play. Erica gave us daily updates with photos and videos. She even ran out to get our dog another bag of dog food when he ran out. When we came to pick our dog up, I don't think he wanted to leave. Which I took as a sign he felt right at home. I don't ever want to go on another vacation without my pup, but if I must I would absolutely use Erica's services again. Her experience and love for the dogs she cares for is apparent. Trust is everything when it comes to finding a dog sitter and I can't thank Erica enough for the peace of mind she gave us while she watched our pup.
Erica was fantastic and her home is a puppy paradise :) She was very accommodating to our scheduling needs. She also sent plenty of pictures and videos of my baby during her stay. Reina looked like she was having so much fun, which made me feel good. I get more separation anxiety than my pup does... I highly recommend Erica. She will take great care of your pup!
