About Erica

11 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
While I do not host dogs in my own home, I am happy to come to your home, whether it is to spend the night with your dog(s) or just to feed them and give them a nice walk! When I am not pet sitting, I travel to kids' homes to give them weekly half hour piano lessons. In addition to this, I am an actor and am pursuing performing and the creative arts! I am an animal lover and thereby a devoted vegetarian, but I will still feed your pets their meat food products, of course!

Erica is a sweetheart! I have a 16.5 year old Border Collie, and a 9 year old Maltese Mix (who is not very welcoming to strangers). From our first time meeting for a meet n greet, she was attentive, took notes, and very understanding. She has a bubbly and warm personality. While we were away, she kept me updated via text and sent photos of the pups. She is also quick to respond through text and very thorough. Will definitely have her again, next time we leave the pups at home!

LONG overdue & I'm a little nervous about posting it.... why? BECAUSE ERICA IS F-ING AMAZING!! Afraid if I post how great she is, she'll be booked & we won't get her anymore :)... but she truly deserves all the raves!! Looked on dogvacay after my fiancé refused to continue paying for a high priced boarding facility.For awhile we've paid crazy amounts for boarding during vacays (usually over 2 wks) & have been satisfied but not wow'ed. Buttt knowing where my babies are & after years, it was routine, even if they came home under the weather & the staff lackadaisical...

but someone new, getting used to their 'issues' (or mine, being nervous), yikes! After reading reviews & reaching out to diff peeps, Erica was first to respond & in a positive,friendly way.We set up a meet & greet & I gave the disclaimers...2 rescues, not always friendly, at first. Erica was SO understanding & they warmed up to her immediately (what?!). She not only came to meet them but walked w/ us around the block- putting on leashes & harnesses, listened to our concerns, all without even having been booked! Clearly, we booked her & she came 2 days BEFORE we left to get in the groove of things. She took notes! YES! She constantly sent us pics & downloaded an app I suggested to correspond internationally.When we got home, the babies were happy to see us, but sadder to see her go. They slept in the guest bedroom for 3 days after to smell her! I was so worried but didn't need to be. ERICA LOYALTY FOR LIFE!

Erica does a great job! She listens and follows through with your requests. She is responsible and professional. Our dog Duke was very happy to have her as his caregiver! We are repeat clients.
Erica was a great sitter. Awesome communication and I was sure that my furry family was in great hands. I will definitely be booking again!
Erica is fantastic. She took notes about the stay and really cared about doing a good job. Our dogs were comfortable around her and she communicated well with us throughout the trip. We came back to happy dogs and she left the house really clean. I would definitely recommend her to others and also ask her to sit again if she doesn't get too booked up!

This was our first time using dogvacay (or any sitter that we didn't already know), so we were more than a little apprehensive about hiring a stranger off the internet. Erica was an incredible find! She was extremely responsive to our initial inquiry, her prices were very reasonable, and she met with us before we booked her to make sure it would be a good fit. She worked with us to make sure all of our various critters (dogs, cats, reptiles) would be cared for. She soothed our pet-parent neuroticism, and kept us updated while we were gone. She watched our babies for over a week, and really was more of a surrogate parent than a sitter. My only regret is that she is moving out of my area - we would book her again in a heartbeat!

Erica is fantastic! She has a bubbly and attentive personality and it is obvious she cares deeply about the animals she watches over. We were able to have a lovely, stress-free anniversary vacation knowing that our fur balls were in good hands. Highly recommend. :)

As akways Erica was excellent
Erica B took care of my two boxers and did a great job. She is very dependable and when we got back everything was clean and like I left it. I would have her in my home anytime---I highly recommend her!
Erica was terrific. This was her first time with Kodi and everything went perfect. Erica is reliable, communicative and a pet lover. You will be pleased with the results. Mitch L.
Erica was wonderful. She is great with our two dogs. They both had huge dog smiles on their faces! Erica also helped out with some unexpected things that happened the day we left on our trip - we realized the dogs' invisible fence collars needed batteries and that we had forgotten to buy cream cheese for giving Apollo his meds. We left her some cash and she went to the store to purchase those items. When I returned from my trip, the house was clean and Erica had washed the towels. We would definitely hire Erica again.

Erica did a fantastic job watching my 10 week old puppy overnight. She walked her several times, cleaned up any messes my dog left, and basically left my house looking like she had never been there. She sent pictures to keep me updated while I was gone. I will definitely use her again.
