About Erin

At Barkley inn I offer a safe cage free, cozy and fun environment for your dog. All guests will be treated equally with lots of tender loving care. Your pet will be pampered and taken on daily hikes, walks and or trips to the local dog park. I pride myself on meeting all social and emotional needs for each dog.

I am a lifetime animal lover and have always had a special bond with all animals. I respect all beings and treat everyone as equals. I have worked in a veterinary office, a shelter, wildlife rehabilitation and fostered many dogs and pets over my life time. I have looked after horses, wildlife and even the odd orca whale so I feel highly confident to look after your pet. I have been living in SLC for just over a year. I've aquired an older home which needs a facelift. Caring for your darlings allows me the opportunity time and space to do that.

I strive to keep your pet safe and secure. Your pawsome pooch will enjoy a fun filled holiday and adventure. I can deliver medicines and care for your pets special needs. If you like I can arrange to send you photos and or video clips via email to show you how well your pet is doing. I look forward to having the chance to care for your lovely family member.

Kind regards,
Erin


*I am usually fine with pets who have certain "ticks," as long as we talk them out beforehand and work through how to handle. No breeds are off-limits and size doesn't matter. Late fees may apply. I charge $50 per night on holidays.

Erin is a wonderful lady! My schedule changes several times and she was very accommodating. My doggie came home with us as happy as ever, so it's safe to say she enjoyed her time there immensely!
Erin was very professional and gave good feedback throughout the stay.
My pup came home so relaxed...and didn't seem that excited to see us haha. She is usually panting and stressed out when we pick her up from boarding or a dogsitter.
Erin was wonderful to work with and took great care of my 3 dogs. They came home happy and all tuckered out.
Erin was abosolutely amazing with our dog, Missy. We had never left her overnight with anyone before and I was feeling nervous. Erin put my mind at ease and was wonderfully reassuring. When we picked up Missy, it was obvious she had a great weekend. I highly recommend Erin. She is very knowledgeable and kept us in the loop about Missy while we were away. We so appreciate you Erin! Thank you so much!!

Thanks Erin! Our dog Leo came home rested and Happy:)
My pup was fine but Erin had a party to go to and wouldn't be there for our agreed to pick-up time. She offered to keep him another day for free but I couldn't fit her schedule so I had to come home from my trip a half day early to pick him up. Not ideal.

Erin is great! Made us feel so comfortable and more importantly the doggies seemed super happy to be with her. Can't say enough. I highly recommend her.
Amazing. Will definitely use her again! My dog came back better behaved and able to play more with other dogs. She was really great and flexible with my schedule
We are so pleased with the care our dog received while staying with Erin! We were nervous as first timers, but Erin really went above and beyond! Our dog had some tummy problems during her stay and Erin went to whole foods and cooked her rice and chicken (and Erin is a vegan)! Again, above and beyond! Thanks Erin!

Erin was great with my girl Pepper!!! This was the first time I have ever used a service like this. It was the holiday weekend when I dropped her off I was a little worried to leave her but Erin gave her head & shoulder massages when she had to much anxiety. I would difinetly recommend her to anyone that is looking for a dog sitter she is awesome!!!

My dog seems to be more sociable with other dogs.
Erin was great. She was able to get Watson in for a stay when our other situation fell through. She was even willing to take him for an extra night when we were much later than planned and couldn't pick him up in time. She sent us many updates about his stay and how he was doing. She knows how to handle high energy dogs very well and loves them like her own. Watson is really looking forward to his next stay!

I can't say enough good things about Erin! I found out last minute that my mother in law couldn't watch our Sammie, a 2 yr. old chihuahua. We were to go on a houseboat at Lake Powell for a week and the rules state "no dogs". We've only had Sammie since March where we adopted him from the Humane Society. Cute as he is, he's VERY prone to anxiety-- pretty much anything new makes him nervous. I believe he was a shelter dog twice so he was NOT happy that we dropped him off at a stranger's house (we've always taken him with us on vacations). After we dropped him off, Erin was supposed to run some errands and go grocery shopping. He was so nervous and so upset that she decided to forgo her errands and stay with him to comfort him. I thought that was very kind and sweet of her. She put his needs before her own. That tells me that she loves animals and understands what they need at any given time.It took him a couple of days to acclimate but he eventually fell in love with Erin and followed her everywhere. She said he got along with the big dogs (very ironic as he's so small) and from the pics she sent us throughout the week, it looked like he had a great time, especially playing outside with his new "friends".He even came home it bit more obedient with commands and he seems less stressed now. He used to bark and growl at people when they knocked at our door, but now he seems more calm when people come over. She just has the magic touch with animals. We'll definitely use her again!

Erin was great at providing me with a last minute booking. I emailed her Monday morning and she got back to me very quickly. Our dog seemed happy when I picked him up, clean, and tired from playing with the other dogs, which was perfect. Thanks
Excellent! I have an 11 mo. old lab who has TONS of energy and has been a bit of a chewer still. Erin was absolutely excellent with ensuring he had tons of love, shown in the photos and updates with their activities. So glad I took a chance and will definitely call upon Erin again!

Erin took great care of our lab Shadow while we headed up to Yellowstone for the week. Shadow spent the week with a few other labs playing, hiking and getting into a little mischief! Thanks Erin for a great dog vacay!
My high-energy dog had a great time at Erin's. Erin sent me updates with pictures every so often during my dog's 10-day stay. I could tell she was being well cared for and getting lots of play time.
Erin was great about our dog's intense ball playing demands! She sent updates and pictures, which we loved. Also we had to expand our trip an extra night and she was awesome to make room for him one more night!
Our pup had a great Vacay with Erin. She had a nice place w a yard and also took the pups out for a hike. Thanks Erin!
Erin did a great job with Chopper. He clearly had a good time.
Bear had a wonderful stay with Erin at the Barkley Inn!!! He can sometimes have a difficult time meeting new dogs but Erin was incredibly patient and helpful. He had a great time hiking and was a little hesitant in leaving because he was having such a good time!!! Erin was also flexible in scheduling drop off and pickup which was INCREDIBLY helpful during my dynamic holiday weekend.

Norman loved his stay! Got to go to a puppy party and we could tell that he got plenty of love!
Erin did an amazing job watching my little guy! He can be a bit of a handful, but she was totally knowledgeable and took care of every little issue. She even sent me photos of him to cheer me up when I got snowed into the JFK airport! Bug came back so happy after playing with her other little guests and has been in such a good mood ever since he came home! I'm always so nervous to leave him, but she made me feel totally comfortable and I'd definitely leave him with her again. Thank you, Erin!!

We were so lucky to have found Erin! She was able to get my two pups in on very short notice and she always responded to messages or questions very promptly. My guys had a great time and it was so reassuring to be able to enjoy our vacation here without having to constantly worry about how the dogs were doing.

Being new to the area, we did not have a dog sitter and needed someone new. After reading through many other profiles we chose Erin, and we are so happy we did. She texted daily updates and videos and our husky, Jasmine, absolutely loved being there. Erin seemed to give her a lot of attention, they took walks, and had lots of play time. Jasmine was such a happy dog when we picked her up. Thank you Erin!!

We felt very fortunate to find Erin to care for our 4 legged family member: Ellie. Erin was warm and wonderful from the beginning. She sent us pictures and texted us to let us know how Ellie was doing. She made leaving out of town easy. We didn't worry knowing she was loved and getting spoiled with attention. Erin was amazing and we will recommend her to everyone!

Erin was awesome with our Lhasa Apso, Scruffy! She was so sweet and kind to him. She took him for walks every day and sent us videos and pictures. We are very pleased with the job she did watching our dog. She provided a safe environment for him. We will definitely have Erin watch Scruffy again!

Erin was great with our dog. Our dog seemed very happy and comfortable staying with Erin. She had a good time playing with the other dogs. The process was easy and she was very flexible with drop off/pick up times.
It's always hard to leave a loved one while traveling, but Erin was great about keeping us updated with texts and pictures. She clearly enjoys having dogs around and appreciates their unique personalities and traits. Her approach seemed very patient and understanding and we picked up a tired and very happy puppy when we got back to town.

Patches loved her stay! Erin is knowledgable about dogs, breeds and behavior. This was Patches' first experience playing with other dogs and being in another home, and Erin AND her dog were so patient and loving. We enjoyed photos, video and updates while we were away, and felt confident that Patches was in good hands. I highly recommend Barkley Inn. I would never have expected the high quality of care we received at such a great value.

We recently moved to SLC and had to go out of town for 5 days. Our dog is a bit anxious and clingy with all the change. Erin was so thoughtful and supportive, of the dog, and of me :). She provided wonderful care, daily exercise, and even some extra (quality) dog food when mine ran out. The regular check-ins and photos helped ease my mind while I was gone. Scout seemed very happy and healthy when I picked him up, as did the other dogs in her care, I might add. I wouldn't hesitate ti book with Erin again.

Zippy really had a *pawsome* vacation at Erin's this weekend! I'm so grateful for the care she gave Zippy and her communication with me. Zippy went on morning hikes, afternoon walks, played with other dogs, and had plenty of love and attention from Erin! After 2 full days and nights, we picked up a very happy and tired dog! The next time we're in Salt Lake we will definitely use Erin again!
Thank you, Erin and Dog Vacay for another great experience!
Many blessings,
Jeanine and Dennis C.

Chuck had a fabulous time staying at Barley Inn with Erin! I had to find someone to watch Chuck last minute, and Erin was quick to respond to my reservation request. She is super friendly and obviously an animal lover. I would recommend anyone choose Erin for their pooch's next Dog Vacay.

My dog Maddy did great at Erin's house. Erin has a really good set up at her place for the dogs. Maddy is an older dog and is often wary of unknown dogs so I wasn't sure how she would do with the other dogs at the house - but she did fine and really enjoyed her time there. She was happy and looked great when I picked her up at the end of my trip. I would definitely use Erin again.

Erin is super easy to work with, and she shows obvious concern for the pets in her care. This was the second time Erin watched one of our dogs, and it was as simple as dropping him off at a friends house. Our dog had a minor injury while playing with other dogs, and Erin took great care of him until we returned.

Stan, our dog, came home happy, clean and stress free. He's an 11 month old golden mix, which means he chews a lot and has lots of puppy energy. Erin was quick to contact us when she needed information about how to help Stan get over his first 24-hour grief of being separated from us. She was calm about his yard digging in her garden, eating a pair of her shoes and eating another dog's bed--puppy stuff. She has a few regular day-sitting dogs, so Stan had loads of playtime in the backyard, which he loved. She sent us lots of fun pictures and videos. Stan was with her for 10 days--which is a big commitment. Erin is congenial to work with and tries to quickly understand each dog's unique traits. Erin's approach is a go with the flow and keep positive energy and discipline going. She has a sense of humor about dogs and is kind.

Erin was super quick to respond and flexible with my last minute schedule changes. Lloyd had a great time, went on some fun hikes, and came home super happy!! Will definitely take Lloyd back to stay with Erin.
Diesel had a great time. Erin took excellent care of him, and we will definitely be return customers.
Erin was great with Butters! Butters original sitter canceled at the last minute and Erin was willing to take Butters in on such a short notice. Butters is a hyper lab, but Erin found a way to wear her out each day. Erin took great care of Butters and made sure she was doing well each day. She even sent pictures, videos, and updates daily that was an added bonus. I plan to use Erin again in the future.

Erin was great with our anxious Mini Aussie! We appreciated her willingness to get to know him and work with him. It was great for him to be able to interact with some new dogs and people and he came home tired, happy and calm! Her communication was great and we got pictures and videos while we were gone. She even helped us out when some unforeseen delays happened on the last day of our trip. Overall a great experience.

Erin did a great job sending us updates! Shef was very happy at the end of his stay!
Maui and Puppy had a great time at the Barkley Inn. Erin was very responsive and helpful, and she kept us updated with photos of our dogs. It's obvious that she cares a lot about our pets!
Diesel had a great time and came home appropriately tired, but more importantly, happy. I appreciated pictures and text updates from Erin. I am so pleased to find a no crate/kennel boarding facility. Am already planning to leave Diesel with her again next month.

I was very happy with how simple it was to set this up with Erin. She was very responsive to my emails and showed genuine interest in being sure my dogs would be happy. I have been told in the past that my dogs can be difficult to watch, but Erin said they were great! They came home very content and so was I.

Erin was great! She sent videos so I always knew how he was doing. I felt very comfortable leaving my dog with her and would highly recommend her.
Erin was great with my very high energy lab, Percy. Although it was extremely hot during her stay, Erin walked Percy everyday and even took her swimming. There were also other dogs staying so Percy had some playmates and made some great doggy friends that she misses. It was great leaving my pup with someone who loves and cares for her as I would and Percy can't wait to go back!!! Thanks Erin!

Erin was very flexible with our need to drop off our dog Koda and pick up later than expected. This was our first time leaving Koda with someone that he didn't know. Koda has always been very temperamental with other dogs, but Erin made him feel very comfortable at her place with 4 other rambunctious dogs during his stay. Thank you Erin for taking good care of our little Shitzu.

Erin is amazing! She made my dog feel completely comfortable and at home and she treated her like a family member. Her pictures, videos and texts let us know that our dog was happy, relaxed and having fun. Thank you, Erin, for taking such good care of Fosca!

Erin was great to work with. She sent videos and pictures of our dog Duke. We had a great experience and will be using her again in the future.
We had an excellent experience with Erin! She sent us great photos while we were gone and our dogs were happy and healthy when we returned. Thanks Erin, we'll be contacting you again!
This was the first time I had to leave my dog with someone and I was extremely nervous. Erin exceeded all my expectations and helped both myself and my dog feel comfortable. She treated Shaftoe like he was part of her family and gave him lots of love! Every day she sent me videos and picture updates showing what a great time he was having, which helped me to relax and be able to enjoy my vacation. Something I really loved about Erin was how much activity she engaged my dog in. She took him for multiple walks a day, played with him in her backyard for hours, and even took him for a hike! I could tell when I picked him up that he had had a fabulous time. I think it is important to mention that my dog is a big, energetic dog with lots of puppy left and not many people can handle him. Erin did more than handle him, she meshed with him and loved him. She understood his little quirks and knew exactly what he needed. I don't think many people are as natural with dogs as she is. I would absolutely recommend Erin, and I can't say enough positive things about our experience with her!

We left our Boston Terrier with Erin for 4-nights and couldn’t have been happier with the experience. We’re so glad to have found a trustworthy go-to sitter for when we’re out of town.
