About Erika

9 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! My husband & I live in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. We have a house with a nice fenced-in backyard in the Village area of Barrington.

PLEASE NOTE: I *do* work approximately 5-10 minutes away (depending on trains crossing!) in Barrington Monday - Thursdays. MOST days I can swing home mid-day to let dogs out in the backyard for a potty break. I do not work Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

**A NOTE ON ACCEPTABLE DOGS: While I welcome all breeds, I cannot accept dogs that have had past aggression issues or are not socialized with other dogs. I do not accept unaltered male dogs. Unaltered females will be accepted on a case-by-case basis; however, if your dog is in heat while on Vacay or goes into heat while with me, there will be a surcharge. I am also not able to accommodate puppies due to my work schedule.

We have 1 friendly Labrador, 2 cats in our house, and 2 gerbils. We do not have children.

I am canine (& feline) CPR & first aid certified through PetTech and am able to give both oral and injected medications. I administer Adequan (injection) to my dog on a monthly basis and I also have experience administering insulin for diabetic dogs. I also give my own dog oral supplements daily, so I am proficient at oral medication.

I am able to take your dog(s) on leash walks, to Lakewood Dog Exercise Area (with your permission only), and I am also able to run with your dog(s) up to about 4 miles (again, with your permission). Of course we also have our fenced-in yard for playing.

I take a maximum of 2 family's dog(s) at one time so your dog(s) will get lots of attention without being too overwhelmed.

As noted above, I ask that your dog be friendly with my own. The cats are able to be separated if necessary. Thank you!

Erika is wonderful! Our dog loves going to her home. He loves that her dog is there. Erika walks him, runs him and takes him to the dog park, plus she has a big fenced in backyard to play in. He feels right at home and enjoys both the dog and she has a big fenced in backyard to play in. He feels right at home and enjoys both the dog and human contact. Erika sends a daily photo which my family loves. We feel luck to have found Erika

Erika was fantastic! She communicated throughout our dog's stay and helped us feel at ease. This was our dog's first time, and it was a fantastic experience.
Erika was awesome! My dog came home well exercised and not stressed out. He even ate well while we were gone, which is not always the case. Erika sent update pictures and let me know all along how things were going. When we arrived at her house sent update pictures and let me know all along how things were going. When we arrived at her house to pick up my dog she was out walking her dog with mine. She took great care of my pup right up to the second we picked him up. I would highly recommend her!
