About Erin

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm a lifetime little dog lover. I grew up in a house of AKC bred show Shih Tzu's. I have my toy Yorkie, Leia. My little girl adores playing with other dogs so we make frequent trips to the small-dog side of the Conejo Dog Park in Thousand Oaks.

I am experienced with rescue dogs and am very patient with traumatized or skittish little guys. I have boarded and adopted from the Simi Valley shelter - Chihuahuas, Min Pins, Pomeranians and Pugs. I love all dogs but I have a 20 pound limit* on ones I can board because of Leia's small size.

*If you have a larger dog that is very docile with small dogs or prefers to be boarded with a small dog we can do a meet-n-greet to see if the size will be an issue. My dog loves big dogs but she is only 4 pounds so if a big dog likes to rough house we'll have to pass :)

I work 8 to 5 Monday through Friday. I live close to my work so I go home for lunch. I get to spend time with Leia and save money. I walk the dogs in the morning and evening. I keep the dogs inside when I am gone, lay out puppy pads and your dog will have access to my safe and secure balcony. I have Pergo flooring and tile throughout my condo so if accidents happen it's no problem. My furniture is pet-friendly so our guests have free range of the sofa, beds, chairs...anywhere they want to nap or snuggle.

Your dog will be a part of my family during their stay. And Leia will be happy to entertain them. :-)

Erin is very accommodating and caring. I have left my dog with her on several occasions and he is always well taken care of. She even lets him sleep on her pillow.
Our reservation was smooth and easy with Erin. My Shih Tzu enjoyed his stay with Erin and her adorable little dog. I give Erin 5 stars and would highly recommend her. She is kind and her home is clean an inviting.
Erin was very accommodating which made leaving our little pup for the first time easier. Gypsy seemed to be happy at pick up. thank you Erin!
So happy we found Erin! She was WONDERFUL!!
Erin is awesome! She has the cutest little Yorkie and after meeting the two of them we felt instantly relieved that our tiny toy poodle was in good hands. Erin's super friendly and responsive and texted us with updates. i let her know that he usually sleeps with us in bed and she texted me that night with a picture of my dog cuddling with her little dog!! I was not worried at all and if I'm ever back in the area, I will definitely want my dog to stay with Erin again! Thank you so much!

Mocha was safe and well taken care of at Erin's house. I would definitely use her again to take care of my dog.
Erin and her little dog were so sweet! My puppy felt right at home, definitely will use her again!
Ziggy LOVED Erin and Leia!! He cried for about 20 minutes after leaving her so we know he was very well cared for and had a wonderful time. How awesome to know there's someone close by that we can trust to watch our sweet baby!! We'll DEFINITELY call on Erin again!! Thanks for such an awesome website/app, DogVacay!
My little Shih Tzu had a wonderful stay. Thank you Erin!
The girls (Treasure & Molly) had another great stay with Erin. After so many visits, Erin is their second home - - trips are "no fuss, no muss" and everybody's happy!
Erin is a wonderful host. She is warm, professional, trustworthy, caring, and detailed. She did a fantastic job with my senior dog, and was sweet to take our last minute booking. I highly recommend her, and will be booking with her again this week.
Erin was a great host for Charlie, our 17lb Cockapoo. She was incredibly easy to work with from booking, to drop off, to pick up. She even sent us pictures of Charlie doing well while we were away. Being brand new to the area, we were very nervous about leaving Charlie for a few days. Erin alleviated our concern, and we were happy to see that Charlie had a great time. I think he was sad to leave! Thanks for making it such an easy process Erin, we will definitely see you again!
Fantastic! She was available and happy to take Bernard for my 3 week vacation on less than 24 hours notice! Not only that, but she was pleasant to deal with both in person and online and I completely trusted that she'd be loving to Bernard and professional as a dog-sitter.

I hope to use her services again!
Erin was very responsive to our inquiries. She took the time to text us pictures of Georgie having fun.
My dogs Treasure (8# Maltese) and Molly (10# Maltipoo) have stayed with Erin twice and will be going back again shortly. Erin and her son Quinn are just great with the dogs, giving each one what they need. They take gentle care of Treasure with her weak hips and give Molly the active play time she loves. Erin is also so helpful with her flexibility, enabling late pick-up. Great job, Erin!
Erin was a great host to Wesley. I don't even think he missed us! Erin was super accommodating!! I would highly recommend her!
My dog had a great time staying with Erin and her little Toy Yorkie Leia.
Erin was accommodating to my last minute booking and looked after my dog as if she was her own. She took pictures and updated me on my dogs stay. I could tell my dog had been eating and drinking well which is not always usual when she stays away from home.
I recommend Erin as a host for your dog.
