About Ericka

In our backyard there is a beautiful ravine that is perfect for taking the dogs for exercise. There is plenty of room to run around our 2,000 sq. ft property. I am a stay at home mom so I am home all day with our dog and will be home all day with your dog too.
Our huge living room windows allow us to always keep an eye on what is going on in the yard so your furry friend would always be safe. We have a little pug and he loves it when we dog sit for our friends. Any dogs that we care for are treated as part of the family so know that your dog will not be stuck outside.

Ericka was great! Mai Lin loved playing with another pug and had an absolute blast!
Overall, my experience with Ericka was good! She accommodated me and my two dogs with fairly short notice, and her rates were very reasonable!! Being a stay-at-home Mom, Ericka's home is a great option if you like the idea of knowing someone will be there most of the day, and if you have M-F boarding needs. Her yard is a great size, and my dogs had very easy in and out access. At our meet-n-greet, she asked a lot of questions to get to know more about my dogs, and let them tour the inside of her home so they could sniff around and get comfortable. I left them with her for 3 days of daycare (so they didn't stay overnight). My only small criticism is I wish I had gotten more updates and photos. I received 2 pictures and 1 text update in the span of the 3 days, and didn't receive anything on the last day they stayed there.
I recently left my two dogs with Ericka and she was amazing! I received text updates and pictures of my pups every day and could enjoy my vacation without worrying because I knew they were in great hands. Now that they are back home I think they actually miss her and her family. I will be leaving my pups with her for my next vacation and am so excited I found someone who will love our pups as much as we do!
This was the 2nd time leaving our two border collies with Erika and her family and it was a great experience both times. They have a perfect setup which gives the dogs 24 hr. indoor/outdoor access, and the backyard is a nice size for exercise & playing (even for our high-energy pups:) Erika & her husband are extremely nice and accommodating, making sure our dogs received walks, calling us with updates while we were away and they were very flexible with pickup & drop-off times. Our dogs got along very well with their sweet little pug and we would be happy to have Erika & family look after them again!
My dog Frankie and I were very lucky to have found Ericka through this website. She was very organized in setting up a meeting at her home to find out more about my dog. She made sure to find out all about Frankie's needs to ensure that he would be happy while staying with her and her family.

I felt very comfortable leaving Frankie in her care. She outlined what a typical day would be for the dogs. While I was out of town I received updates along with photos that really put me at ease. I strongly recommend leaving your dog(s) with Ericka as I know they will have as an enjoyable time as Frankie did.
It was the first time we left out dog, Lucy, overnight with someone and we were a bit nervous. But Ericka was a great dog sitter. She was very flexible about last minute changes to our drop off time and pick up time. And our dog got along well with Pete the Pug and the other dog Ericka was taking care of. Lucy sleep in her kennel in their bedroom at night and had plenty of outdoor space to play around in during the day. When we picked up Lucy the next day she seemed to have missed us, but she seemed also to have had a pleasant time. We were very relieved as Lucy has separation anxiety.
Erika and her family were absolutely fantastic. They were polite, understanding, very flexible and accommodating. I have a hectic work schedule and my dog is normally nervous when he has to stay with someone else, but he had a wonderful time. He got plenty of attention and had a lot of fun frolicking in the backyard with Pete the Pug. I've never seen my dog so comfortable in someone else's home before. I would absolutely recommend Erika to my friends and would love to work with her again.
