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!

*** Unfortunately until further notice, I am no longer offering boarding and daycare at my place. *** :(

Instead, I am offering to come by your place 3-4 times a day to check up on your pet. Each visit usually consists of 45-60 minutes of feeding, walking, cuddles and play time. We may even take a trip to the dog park! I am only able to look after 2 separate households a day, so please book sooner than later! Please send me a message for more information or for a custom quote if you have more than one pup in the house!

I am also offering a walking service as well! The cost for one pup is $15 for half an hour, or $25 for an hour or a trip to the dog park. For two pups, a half hour walk is $25, or $35 for an hour or a trip to the dog park.

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.

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.

We are very big fans of the dog park located off of Rossland and Harmony. I will always ask you if it is ok if you bring your pet there, and if they are ok to go off leash there or not. If I feel an animal cannot be trusted 100% to come back, then they will be put on a longer leash and not taken off leash. I want them to have some freedom to explore, but I want them to come back too!

Check out my Instagram page and give it a follow for pictures and videos of adventures and cuddles that take place while your pet is on vacation with me. All photos are posted with the owners permission of course! Just copy and paste the link below to see all of the fun we get up too! Don't forget to follow for regular updates!

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

We were so happy with the care our dog Dexter received while we were gone. The hardest part of going on vacation is leaving your fur baby behind, but we knew he was in great hands! Erin sent us texts and pictures and via Instagram so we knew he was doing well. She was able to give our dog the care he required and administered all his medications. We would not hesitate to hire or recommend her! Thank you so much Erin!
Erin was great with Spaghetti.
Cooper had a great stay with Erin while we were away recently. Being a first time user of this site, Erin made our experience very easy and her updates were reassuring. Cooper transitioned very well and enjoyed his time with Erin and Tyler. Thank you for a great experience!
Sara had a great visit with Erin over the holidays She came home tuckered out from her visits to the dog park Thanks so much Erin for taking good care of Sara while we were away!
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.
She was excellent with my pup and VERY accommodating for the unique hours I needed for a puppy sitter. I will be using her service again & would recommend her to others.
