About Erin

11 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there! My name is Erin Vermeulen and I have recently moved to the Oshawa area and am loving it! Dogs must be comfortable with men and cats as I live with my boyfriend and my kitty Minou.

All my life I have loved animals and knew I wanted to work with them, and coming from a large family mainly working in the medical field; I found my calling.

I have just graduated from Seneca College of Applied Arts and Technology for the Veterinary Technician program. This means that I am the nurse for your pets at veterinary clinics! I am currently in the process of becoming a Registered Veterinary Technician. Since I am a technician, I do have a extra set of skills that can come in handy with caring for pets. Giving medications, whether they are oral, inject-able, or topical, is not a problem for me and I understand the importance of giving medications on time. I also can trim nails and give baths. Animals who are recovering from a recent surgery or procedure are my specialty. I will keep them calm, rested, comfortable, warm, happy and loved while they are recovering, while keeping an eye out for anything abnormal with the pets behavior or the incision site, so that if something is different, I can notify you and we can decided if we should take them into the vets or not.

I am comfortable with all breeds, sizes, and temperaments of animals. I will treat them as my own and make sure they are comfortable and happy at all times.

When having your pet stay with me I do recommend that you bring everything and anything you think will make him/her more comfortable/feel at home -toys, their bed/crate, food bowls (if they are particular to those like my parents dogs pictured above), enough food and treats for the stay, and a piece of clothing that you have recently worn. I find that helps with separation anxiety and makes them feel more comfortable and at ease in a new environment.
Now that the cold weather is upon us, please remember to bring any coats, sweaters, or paw covers for your pet, we want them to stay warm too!

I do dog sit at your house as well, but I don't stay at your house all day or night as I usually have dogs at my place. I usually go over multiple times a day to feed, walk, play, love and let them go outside. If you are looking for more around the clock care, I prefer that they come and stay with me.

**December and January are starting to get busy! Please be sure to book sooner than later as I do have limited space and hate having to turn people down. And just because my calendar on here says I'm booked, doesn't necessarily mean I am! Please send me a message if the dates you are interested in are blocked off and we can arrange something.**

All dogs staying with me on Christmas Day will receive a small present, just as if they were apart of my family.

I look forward to meeting you and your pet! Please feel free to message me at anytime with questions or inquiries :)

We had the most amazing experience. Thank you Erin for making Eason's time away from home so comfortable and loving.
I would highly recommend Erin's services to anyone looking for a caring and loving place for your pet to stay. Having never used one of these sites before, I was a little nervous about a random stranger looking after my girl! But as soon as I heard from Erin I felt good about leaving my dog in her care. She is very friendly and really cares about the welfare of your animal. She was super accommodating with arranging drop off and pick up times and made the whole process from begining to end a pleasure.
I will def be a repeat customer!
Thanks again!

Erin and (Tyler) were amazing for Bandit!! This was his first time away from us and he couldn't have been in better hands. Erin even sent some pics to a momma who was worried. Bandit made the transition easily and love them to pieces by the end. He was very well taken care of and it made for a peaceful vacation for us.
Thanks again Erin.

Erin and Tyler were so great with our mini aussie. I was quite nervous about leaving JoJo for the first time, but they made it easy and were awesome at providing me with updates. Would definitely recommend them!
Again Erin and Taylor were amazing and Lola was so excited to see them. Thanks for all of the love you give her!
Erin & Tyler were very welcoming and accommodating. Bailey & Jäger had awesome playtime I guess as they were completely exhausted. Being a Vet Tech, Erin has a good command on the dogs and she made sure that they were comfortable as Bailey & Jäger are still goofy puppies. Overall it was a really good experience. See you soon guys!!

A great little vacay for Rufus! Will certainly call upon Erin again!
All I can say about Erin and Tyler is that they are toooo good. I really think my Lola would of liked to just stay there with them. Thank you for the extremely good care and love you gave Lola. See you soon.
Erin was very accommodating on such short notice! Our Sammy was more than happy to have someone here with him while we were gone! Thanks again Erin! We will most likely call on her again!
My puppy girl had a great vacation with Erin and Tyler. They were happy to have her and sent me updates with pictures, which I really appreciated. I plan to use Erin's services again when we go on vacation and I would definitely recommend her for your doggie sitting needs.

Hugo had an amazing time. Came home exhausted from playing all day. Thank you so much Erin. Totally recommend her!!!
Erin was very understanding due to Lola's medical needs and being a graduate of the Vet Technician course it gave me a great sense of comfort to know that Lola would be well looked after and Lola just loved Erin from the very first moment with the amount of kisses Lola gave Erin. I knew that this was a match made in heaven.
Thanks Erin for taking the stress out of leaving Lola with you. Hope your ready for her again!

Lucky had a good time. Very prompt, pleasant. I would have no concerns using Erin again. She took the time to go over his habits including where he usually sleeps.
Erin was great with our 8 month old puppy, he was very relaxed and happy after we picked him up for a weekend away. I will definitely be returning anytime we need someone to watch our Spike. He had a great time!
We were very pleased with the care and attention our Havanese" Lola" received while she was vacationing at Erin's home. Lola went on several walks a day and played and got along very well with Erin's cat and the other dogs on vacation at Erin's home. I call it vacation because I could tell by the way Erin told me all about Lola's 2 week stay behaviour that I think Lola thought she was on a vacation.
I would and already have recommended Erin to family & friends.
