About Erin

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My teenage children, husband and I love caring for dogs. We would love to open our home to other people who need a trustworthy, loving care provider while they work or travel.

I owned a home-day care for 10 years. I am a therapist for Autistic children and work as a Principal in a preschool. Needless to say, caring for others is who I am!

Eric has been a pleasure to work with. She's taken care of our two dogs on two separate occasions. Highly recommended.
Erin is wonderful! We have used her many times and our dog is happy and well-taken care of each and every time. Highly recommended.
Callie spent Christmas with Erin and her family. Lucky dog! I know she is loved and well taken care of. We are blessed that they are Callie's second family when we are traveling.
Erin was so attentive to our tender hearted lab during our relocation. She was even able to extend his stay at the last minute to save him extra stress from the move. Thank you!
Erin was so attentive to our tender hearted lab during our relocation.
We left our 3 mths old Keke with Erin. Erin sent photos and updates throughout her stay. I felt very safe with Erin pet sitting.
My dog loves Erin and the kids. She seems sad when she comes home. They take great care of her and are great with communication.
Erin was very flexible with dropoff/pickups and very pleasant to work with. She updated me daily with photos of our two dogs in her care. I would recommend Erin for any dog boarding services.
Erin and her family took great care of our basset hound, Franklin. They were very responsive and extremely sweet to him. We really love all the picture updates that they sent. Judging by how comfortable he looked, we were surprised he wanted to come home. We definitey would leave Franklin with them again. Thank you for taking care of our boy!!
Nellie seemed to have a great time at Erin's while we were away. She ran around and played in the fenced in yard and came home tired. Always a good sign of a fun few days. Will def. book again.
Sandy always has so much fun with Erin and her kids! The other dogs are so sweet and she fits right in. (: It gives me peace of mind to know that Sandi's medication schedule will always be followed closely. She loved her stay once again!
Erin and her son watched our pup for a long weekend, and we could not have been happier with the experience. Right off the bat we could tell this family had a lot of experience with dogs, as they have 2 dogs, and were watching a third. My wife and I felt very comfortable leaving our pup with Erin, and we received an update on our dog while we were away, which really put us at ease.
Erin provides a true home away from home for our Callie. She is happy to arrive at her house and is greeted by Erin's two sweet dogs. We feel so fortunate to have Callie so well cared for. Karen M.
Erin is wonderful. We had a nice meet and greet and our little guy was comfortable right away. Her home is definitely a home away from home that dogs, big and small, will be well taken care of in. We are so glad to have found someone dependable, reliable, and as caring as Erin. Getting the photos of our dog and regular updates was wonderful too!
Erin is always flexible with pick-up and drop-off times. It was my first time leaving my dog with someone else, and she made the process very stress-free.
Erin was wonderful and Bear enjoyed his stay there. She took great care of him and also sent us daily updates on how he was doing so that we knew he was well. We will use her again for sure!
Erin did a great job as always! We had some last minute stuff that made us have to change pick-up and drop-off times, and she was super flexible about it!
We could tell right away at the meet and greet that Erin was the right person to take care of our dog. She was warm, freindly and made us comfortable that our dog would be well taken care of. During our trip she sent pictures and stayed in touch which made our trip worry free. We highly recommend you consider her and will be recommending her to others as well.
We feel so fortunate to have Callie stay with Erin and her family. She is so well taken care of and comes back to us happy. She and Erin's dogs get along well. Would highly recommend.
This was our first visit with Erin. We particularly appreciated Erin's almost daily texts (often with pictures). Seeing a picture of our dog stretched out comfortably and lying on the middle of Erin's living room floor eased our anxiety quite a bit!
Erin is terrific. She sent many messages and pics of our dog, which made us feel comfortable about enjoying our vacay knowing that our Breezy was in a happy home environment!
We were anxious about who we would leave my 11/2yr old Giant Schnauzer with while we were on vacation until we met Erin. Her family, including her adorable dogs, made us feel very comfortable. My dog Irie can very quite a handful and silly, but Erin assured us that her family was up to the task. Erin contacted me daily with updates and sometimes pictures sharing Irie's vacation with us. Erin even stayed up late so we could pick Irie up when we got back from our trip. Irie was happy and tired when she got home.
Erin was very flexible in scheduling our visit. She was great at staying in touch while we were away.
Once again, my dog Naya had a great stay with Erin and her family. They were easily available for me for the drop off and pick up times, and Naya looked like she had a good time.
This was Callie's first visit with Erin and it was a
success. Callie came back home happy. Erin
sent us pictures and text messages almost every day to let us know how our pet
was doing, how she was eating, adjusting to her new environment, what she was doing etc.

Erin is a warm and caring individual. She has
two dogs of her own and Callie and her dogs got
along without issue. I would definitely recommend
Erin and actually we plan to have our dog stay
again very soon.
Erin was flexible and accommodating on our very short notice. Lucky certainly seemed to enjoy his vaca. He made himself at home and that was OK with Erin. Coming home he was happy and tired, which is always a good sign! Thanks Erin Lucky will see you again. -Peggy O
Sandi had another great experience with Erin and her family last week while we were overseas. She loves hanging out with their little dogs and seems to feel right at home! We received updates during her stay and they were very careful about her medication and diet. Thanks for taking such good care of her!!
Erin A. was a tremendous help with my dog. At first when I was browsing the site and had questions and messaged her, she would promptly answer them within 24 hours of me reaching out to her. Erin was very polite, honest, and direct. She was willing to accommodate all of our needs. She took him on walks, she took pictures and sent them to my wife and me while we were away. It was clear that she did a great job when he was sad to leave her home. She gave us good feedback on his behavior and gave us thorough assessments of how he acted during the days he was with her. Further, she took care of his toys, bowls, and other belongings. I highly recommend Erin A. for any of your DogVacay needs! She will treat you, the owner, very well, and she will treat your dog even better!
I am a first time Dog Vacay client and overall my experience with Erin was GREAT! She was really accommodating with drop off and pick up times, and I knew my Boo dog was in safe hands. Last minute, I ended up needing to leave town a day early, and Erin was more than happy to help us out. I will definitely be using Erin again!
Our dog stayed with Erin for 8 nights, and we were confident that he was in good hands. As first time dog owners, Erin was warm and welcoming by allowing us to visit her twice before making a decision to board with her. Throughout our vacation, we looked forward to receiving photos and reassuring texts from Erin every day! Erin was accommodating and worked around our pick-up and drop-off schedule. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, and we will definitely use Erin again for our boarding needs.
Our puggle, Sandi, had a wonderful time with Erin and her family. We enjoyed receiving some fun texts and photos during our time away to let us know how she was doing. Sandi seemed to feel right at home and is now sleeping blissfully - dreaming of her time with her new doggie pals and her new friend, Megan. (: Highly recommend!
It was great to be able to get away for a couple days and know that our dog was in very capable hands. Our kids loved seeing the photos Erin would text us and talked about how their dog was staying with friends, she sure was! Will absolutely use Erin and her family again for all our boarding needs.
Another great visit with Erin and family. My dogs are always glad to go see them!
This is the third time my two dogs have stayed with Erin and her family, and they are beginning to feel like Erin's home is their second home. They ran to her door and were happy to go in. They didn't even look back when I left! She is definitely providing good care for them, and they are always happy and healthy when I pick them up.
Another great stay for my doggies at Erin's. They had fun in the snow, and pick up and drop off times worked really well for us.
Erin and her family did a great job with my 2 dogs. They were happy and healthy when I picked them up, and I got pics of them with Erin's family every day. We had no issues scheduling pick ups and drop offs either.
