About Erin

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We live in a beach casual bungalow (condo) where dogs rule the streets. Although we are not dog owners, we both grew up with dogs and know how to take care of our K-9 friends. Your dog will be spoiled rotten! We are only a half of a mile from the dog park and just minutes from dog beach. Your dog will enjoy their doggy vacay and you will be rest assured they are in good hands. If you would like updates while you're away, we can send you text, photos, or videos to display.

There may be something better than picking up a totally relaxed and happy dog from his sitter after an out-of-town trip. But aside from purchasing a winning lottery ticket, it's hard to imagine what it could be.
Erin and Jeff were terrific. They asked all three of us over so that Woodie could sniff every room and figure out which couch he preferred. In the end, our only concern was whether he'd actually go home with us. We cannot recommend Erin and Jeff too highly. They are real doggie people.

Jeff & Erin were so great. I am thankful that I found them on such short notice and that they could accomodate me. Highly recommended! Thank you Jeff (and Erin!)
Erin and Jeff were great. I didn't have to worry about my pup for one minute as I knew that he was well cared for.
Erin and Jeff are the sweetest people! My husband and I went on vacation and didn't have to worry one bit about our dog, Dixie. They sent us pictures to let us know how she was doing. I'm pretty sure Dixie didn't want to come home after all the walks and attention she got. This is the second time they have watched her and we highly recommend Erin and Jeff. Thanks for being so kind to us and our dog!

Noah our golden retriever absolutely loved going on his Vacay. He was so happy, he knew he was loved and it gave our family TOTAL peace of mind. We would recommend Erin O over and over again. When you love your animals as much as we do they are not just animals they are family. Erin and her family are now a part of ours. Thank you!!!

They were awesome. Will definitely use them again if I need my dog taken care of again.
Erin and Jeff were fantastic with our doggies. Our dogs loved them from the start. We used them for dog walking services and each time we got home, they were happy and well taken care of. We will definitely be using them again!
This was Berkley's second stay with Erin and Jeff. Jeff was very accommodating with scheduling pick up and drop off. He sent us daily pictures of Berkley lounging and clearly enjoying his vacation! Very comfortable leaving my dog in their care! Great hosts!

Very amazing couple. Had patience with my puppy and sent lots of pictures to set my mind at ease on his comfortable vacay. Communication was always kept in times of questions regarding my puppy Frank. He seemed to have been happy his entire stay here.

Audo seemed sad to leave Jeff and Erin. He had a great time and was well cared for. Jeff sent pictures daily.
The special care and attention that was given to our little poodle, Buddy, was Exceptional !!!!
A quiet home setting, personal attention and pictures sent to us allowed us to enjoy our trip to the fullest. We could see that our little dog was quite relaxed and at home.
We give a recommendation of 1000%.

Erin and Jeff were great! My dog was instantly comfortable with them when he met them, which made it so much easier to leave him. I got pictures and updates everyday, and they spoiled him like he was their own. Thank you so much!!
Came home to a very content doggie once again! He greeted us excitedly and then plopped down to lay and relax. That said it all. Thanks for all the walks & taking the best care of our pooch!!! He misses you guys after his vacay.
It was so wonderful not having to worry about my Frisco while we were away. Erin and Jeff were so easy to communicate with. They were more than accommodating and from the pictures, I could tell Frisco was being well taken care of. They were wonderful!!! I will absolutely use them again and highly recommend them.

Erin and Jeff are awesome! This was our first time using DogVacay and they made it easy. We got updates about our dog, which made our trip a lot more relaxing. I would highly recommend them, they are really nice and took great care of our dog. I don't think Dixie wanted to come home :)

Erin and Jeff are awesome. This was Hazel's 3rd or 4th stay and she was so excited to drive up to her vacation house. I know she is well taken care of so I never worry when I'm gone. I love sharing the pics I get with the people I'm visiting. They think that is so cool to get updates.

Erin & Jeff graciously made themselves available for a meet & greet prior to us booking. Our dog Zoe seemed right at home with them. Jeff works from home and Erin is at home a lot and this is what we needed as Zoe is not comfortable alone in a strange place. Jeff took Zoe for walks and texted us pictures of her. She was very happy. We used Jeff and Erin 3 times while we were in PB and Zoe was very happy to see them every time. We take Zoe with us everywhere, but sometimes you just can't. But you can relax and enjoy whatever you're doing knowing your pet is well cared for while staying with Erin & Jeff.

T-bone loves going to stay with Erin and Jeff! When it is time to come home he just as happy to turn around and go right back in to stay and play a bit longer! Very comforting to know he is in such good hands! Thanks!
This was a great stay for Miley. From the minute we met Jeff, Miley took an instant liking to him and we felt very comfortable as we drove away. We really appreciated the text updates and pictures of Miley feeling right at home. We highly recommend Jeff and Erin and will absolutely use them again.

Wow, we really hit the jackpot with Erin and Jeff. A super sweet couple, both very attentive to our dog's needs and took care of our place like it was their own. You can tell they truly love animals and appreciate each one's special personalities. We felt at ease and really happy to see that Blue was having so much fun and was able to relax while we were away. That made our trip that much more fun and enjoyable, not having to worry about him.

We know Blue is well taken care of by Erin and Jeff, he still looks for them after they leave. It's so nice being able to get away and not worry about our sensitive pup, knowing he is getting the royal treatment while we're gone.
I was looking for a one night stay for my dog Berkley who has not done well in doggie hotels. Erin and Jeff kept him and I couldn't be happier. They provided a meet n greet where Berkley quickly made himself at home. They were accommodating with our drop off and pick up schedule. Erin and Jeff also provided us with frequent updates including pictures of Berkley enjoying himself! Now that I know Berkley was comfortable and happy I will book Erin and Jeff for any future trips.

Erin and Jeff were pawsome with our energetic 6 month old standard poodle, Hazel. I think Hazel met her match as Erin kept her very busy with daily visits to the park, multiple walks, and plenty of other adventures. She slept for hours once we brought her home. After meeting Erin and Jeff we could see that they would take great care of her and we never worried for one minute after we left. I can't recommend them more highly.

This is the first time using dogvacay and was a little leery at first. I sorted through many profiles but when I saw erin and jeffs smiling faces and reviews the feeling of uncertainty dissipated. I live in Las Vegas and had to travel to La Jolla to be in a wedding. I decided i was going to bring my pack ( a husky mix ,chaweenie and Chihuahua) with me so they could experience the off leash dog beach at Ocean Beach (which by the way is a plethora of happy frolicking puppies everywhere!!!! ) I arrived a little early due to I left an hour early for anticipation of getting lost. Erin was very understanding and when her and Jeff came out to the car to round them up I new right away they were in good hands. The pack greeted them with wagging tails and kisses which is amazing since the are all rescues and a little shy and timid with new people. When i handed them the leashes the puppies didn't even look back to see where I was. I was going to be gone from 2-11pm and told Erin that for any reason they have issues to send me a 911 and I would come get them. No 911's came but the entire time Erin sent me reassuring updates with photos and texts on the packs status. When I arrived for pick up Erin and Jeff where coming back from an evening walk with them. Yes, they were happy to see me but I think they could really care less if they had to stay the rest of the year with them due to the love and attention they received. Would I have them stay with Erin and Jeff again? ABSOLUTELY

Maggie and Chili Bean love going to Erin and Jeff's! They're great dealing with our dogs' quirks, which gives me peace of mind knowing they're in good hands!
Erin and Jeff are fantastic! Aria had a great vacation with them! I got lots of pictures and a video to show how much love my fur baby was getting in their care! I would definitely send Aria on a dog Vacay with them again!
So fortunate to have met Erin and Jeff! They took wonderful care of our dog during a weekend stay. Erin and Jeff are such friendly and thoughtful people - every detail associated with a doggy sleepover was considered - from ensuring they fully understood bedtime routines to sending photo updates of a tired pup from the park. Thank you again, Erin and Jeff!

Erin is simply the best! Her home is warm and welcoming, the moment Ruby walked in her home she was right at home and Ruby loved Erin immediately. No anxiety or shyness and Erin had a bowl of water ready when we arrived. She treated Ruby like a queen. The photos and videos she sent me over the weekend were wonderful and Ruby looked so very happy in every single photo. Erin is worth her weight in Gold and there was not one moment that I worried about Ruby. She gave me the peace of mind that allowed me to enjoy my mini vacation without my favorite girl Ruby.

I wish I could give Erin 10 stars because she is worth it. I recommend her whenever you are in the Mission Beach, San Diego area.

Thanks for helping us out once again!
Erin and Jeff were wonderful to Gunner once again. Thank you guys for being so awesome!
Thank you for taking such good care of Gunner again! Its so comforting to know he is being well looked after :)
Another fabulous stay with Erin and Jeff! Our dogs seem happy and tired and we felt reassured knowing they were staying with someone they already felt familiar with. Very flexible and understanding about my travel schedule and worked with me... Kept me updated with pictures and texts throughout the weekend:))) Thank you (again)!

I highly reccomend Erin if you are those people who decide to go on a trip in the last minute. She was so kind to me and especially to my dog! She even send me pictures of my dog when i was away!!
This is our second stay with Erin and we couldn't be happier. They are great with our Maggie, who is a lil high maintenance and loves a lot of exercise... the first time we picked her up, she didn't want to leave, literally trying to follow Erin back into the building! Now we have two dogs - with a new puppy named Chili Bean - and again, Erin took care of both of them without any problems whatsoever. We definitely have peace of mind when our pups stay there. Highly recommend!

Repeat customer! Erin and Jeff are amazing. Reliable, detailed, on point, and they also kept instructions from my dog's first visit. All I had to do this time was make the reservation and drop off my dog. A whole lot less stressful - and they tell me that my dog is well behaved. *Woohoo!*

Such fantastic, understanding, and responsive hosts! Our dogs were happy and totally pooped by the end of their weekend with Erin & Jeff! Erin kept us updated with pics throughout the weekend and we could tell our pups were getting lots of attention, care, and exercise. They even got scrambled eggs for breakfast on their last day which we thought was hilarious! (We like to give our dogs eggs for breakfast to supplement their diet, but certainly didn't want to put our dogsitter through the trouble, so that was above and beyond.) best of all, they coordinated their schedules so our dogs wouldn't have to spend much, if any, any time alone during their stay and that gave us so much peace of mind. Would definitely book with them again. Thank you guys and we hope you enjoyed having Miko and Goku over. :)

Gunner had a great weekend! Thanks for looking after him : )
Erin and Jeff were just as accommodating as the first time our dog stayed with them. Its such a wonderful feeling knowing Gunner is in a loving and now familiar home when we are out of town. We definitely plan of booking with them in the future. Thank you so much guys:)

I am so glad that Erin and her husband were able to watch our boxer, Harley! They turned out to be such great sitters. Harley can be a high energy boxer, and sometimes has issues with other dogs, and they were totally willing to work with this, they did great! Erin was a total sweetheart and really easy/pleasure to work with. She sent me pictures of Harley every day, and I could see that Harley was sure having a blast. I can tell they really spoiled her silly. I didn't pack enough food, and they ran out, so they went to the store to get more of Harley's favorite salmon and sweet potato blend. They are so awesome! Harley seems kind of sad ever since we brought her home, I really think she misses Erin and her husband! I hope they'll take Harley again in the future (I promise I'll pack more food next time!) :)

Erin & Jeff are great hosts!

This is what Erin and Jeff had to deal with:
- A PitBull (very well behaved and well trained... but many folks don't know what the breed stands for)
- A very overprotective dog owner because of my dog's breed
- A three page set of instructions of every single scenario that could possibly happen and instructions on how to tackle those situations

Result:
- Lots of pictures and notes to keep my significant other updated on how my dog was behaving
- A very tired and well exercised dog

After bringing the dog home and eating the dinner meal, she went right to sleep!

Erin & Jeff - THANK YOU so much for taking great care of our dog, tiring her out, giving my significant other and I to attend a very important wedding out of the country, (and giving us the opportunity to show that bully breeds can be really awesome)!

Erin and Jeff were amazing!

We received constant updates and photos over our two week vacation. The piece of mind knowing Gunner was being well taken care of, getting his meds and going to the park made the trip so much better. Thanks for taking great care of him!

We highly recommend them, and look forward to booking with them in the future : )
