About Erin

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi,

Please note that at this time I'm only taking return clients. Thank you!

I am happy to offer a wonderful place to leave your pets while you are away.

I spent four years working with dogs and training dogs in dog daycare centers. I've taught puppy classes as well as Beginner and Intermediate Obedience. I've studied dog behavior with several certified trainers. I am very comfortable with a group of dogs, and I love engaging dogs in play and games while they are here.

I have four sighthounds, and I know how hard it can be to leave them behind. I would love to offer a happy, comfortable place for them to stay while you are away. While they are here, they can play with my four dogs. They will be part of the family during their stay and will have 24-hour supervision, constant love, and plenty of playtime. As long as you are comfortable with me walking your pup, I like to give every guest pup two walks a day.

The backyard is fully fenced; however, the back fence is 3 1/2 feet tall. I want to be 100% sure every dog is safe here, and I don't want to take the risk of any guest pup jumping the fence. The two side fences in the backyard are 6-feet tall.

I offer multiple-dog discounts. All dogs that visit for daycare and/or overnight care must be socialized with other dogs and dog-friendly.

My four hounds are all on monthly flea and heartworm prevention. I ask that all guest pups are also on flea prevention.

My husband, hounds, and I would be happy to welcome your pup into our home!

Oliver had a great time at Hound Town! Throughout the day Erin sent me pictures and videos which was greatly appreciated. I loved being able to stay connected and see how much fun he was having! Oliver can't wait to go back.
Erin is the best! She took my pup Maya on late notice and made her feel like family. Since this was her first day of daycare I was a little concerned about how she would do. Erin was very accommodating and sent me pictures and updates throughout the day. I really couldn't have asked for more. If you are looking for the best daycare for your Furry family member, go with Erin she truly loves what she does and I can't recommend her enough. Thanks again Erin!

Erin is the best! Nelly lives her and is happy to visit!
Erin is awesome. We have used her in the past, just this past week and will definitely use her again in the future! Our dog is so comfortable there it makes it easy for us to enjoy our time away.
My dog loves it there!
Live Erin!
Best place ever!
Erin is fantastic. Her knowledge and compassion for your fur-babies is limitless. Our 11 and 12 year old Yorkies had a wonderful and loving stay at Erin and Gregs. Thank-you
Rocco and Rylee love going to Erin's and have such a great time. She takes amazing care of them and makes sure they get their exercise.
Our pups love spending time at Erin's. She also was able to take them on a very last minute notice. We are so thankful we found her!
Erin and her hubby are the best!! We got pics and video galore!! So so many updates. We felt like we didn't miss any of the special moments. Winston had a blast and made so many friends. Erin is loving, patient, kind, and extremely passionate. We did not have a single worry. Winston can't wait to go back!! We are blessed!

Our dog, Buddy, absolutely loves staying with Erin! He has such a blast playing with the other dogs and he always comes home happy, clean and exhausted from all the fun. Thank you, Erin, for having a safe and fun place for us to leave Buddy whenever we go away!

Always the best and our 1st choice in pet care! Maggie has a blast with all the playtime and group walks. She always comes home happy and tired. Erin & Greg are passionate & gifted in their ability to read animals. Love all the pics and video clips.

I cannot speak highly enough about Erin! We have used several sitters through Dog Vacay and by far our favorite! She is incredibly knowledgeable on all things dogs and did a fantastic job with our Great Dane. Erin is all all-star
Erin is absolutely fabulous. Isabella has the best time playing with the other dogs and Erin obviously takes wonderful care of her. We never worry when we leave her with Erin. I keep saying she has so much fun she won't want to come home!!!
Cooper loves to visit Erin and play with her other dogs. Erin sends us terrific photos and videos during Cooper's visits. Hound Town is wonderful!
Erin was excellent! She stopped by while we were out of town to look after our two dogs. They both got a walk and some time to stretch their legs in our backyard, and we did not have to worry while we were away because we knew we could trust her! Will definitely use Erin again!

We could not be more pleased with the level of care Erin provided for our dog, Abbey. This was Abbey's first overnight with Erin. She made sure that Abbey was comfortable with each of the other dogs. We felt guilty leaving her on Christmas day, however, once we began receiving messages and pictures of Abbey playing with the other dogs and sleeping with a blanket on the couch we realized that she probably wouldn't want to come home. Erin kept an eye on Abbey's sore toe and infected ear. What a great value for the cost too. The dogs are looked after and made comfortable as if they were at home. Our dog stretched out and relaxed as Erin and I chatted at pick up time. For a dog that never stops pacing that was a really good sign. SOOO happy to have found Erin, Greg and their sweet pups.

Erin is always awesome with all the pups!
Erin and her husband Greg are the BEST!! You will not go wrong n u will NOT regret the Best decision for your pups and your peace of mind that your pups are with the most caring people on the planet!!
Once again Erin and her husband took excellent care of Rocco and Rylee. We are in the middle of house construction and did not want to leave them home all day with all the noise while we were at work. She gladly took them on a very last minute request and made sure they were clean before I picked them up.

I miss the pups when they are away but I know without a doubt they are very well taken care of. Rocco and Rylee enjoy socializing with the other dogs at her house and came home completely exhausted.

Erin takes such great care of my dog, Otis! He can't get out of the car fast enough when we arrive and he's always a bit reluctant to leave Erin and his friends when I come to pick him up.
The frequent updates with pictures throughout the day are wonderful and Erin goes out of her way to be as accommodating as possible.
I couldn't ask for anyone better to leave my little guy with when I have to be away! Erin is the best!

Erin is amazing. This was Sky's first stay at Erin's. Other reviewers have said it again and again, Erin is a natural dog mom who understands dogs and treats every dog as one of her own. She knows her dogs, and can "read" dogs' body language, and lets them be dogs. She knows how to build confidence in dogs, makes sure each dog's needs are met, and even teaches them how to share! By Sky's second day stay, Sky was running laps and playing with other dogs, something she was apprehensive about at first. The second day of Sky's stay, when I picked her up, Sky sat next to Erin and put her paw on Erin's shoulder, asking for a pet, and then gave Erin a nice long kiss. That said it all for me. Thank you Erin.

Erin is such a thoughtful and kind dog-caregiver. I have never seen our dog so full of bliss than in the photos she sent of Cooper playing in her backyard with his dog friends. Her messages were an added bonus during the day, we never worried about our pet for a second. She is the best!

Erin is always THE BEST!! My red field retriever and vizsla LOVE it. They get to play all day n come home tired! Yeahhhhh! Thanks so much Erin for being such a great dog Mom!
I can't say enough about the dog vacay experiences that Rosko has had at Erin's house. He now goes to daycare a couple times a week and loves it! So many friends to play with and Erin treats him just like one of her own fur babies. We are so thankful we found her!

I love Erin! She welcomes both me and my pup into her house like family. Not only does my husky/mastiff mix have the time of his life at her house, he also receives training exercises! She practices commands, loose leash walks and more with all dogs she has in her care. My guy has learned puppy play manners from the HOURS of playtime he has with all the dogs in her home. I'm working on training him at home and Erin has given me so much advice and help. I don't know where I would be without her!!

We love Erin! She is awesome with our dog and always lets us know details about his stay. She is very knowledgeable about dogs in general and she treats our dog as if it were her own. Our Doberman, Harvey, loves being there and we can tell he has had a good time there with Erin and the other dogs. She texts the cutest pictures of the dogs activities, so you don't miss out on anything. Terrific person with terrific service. We couldn't ask for anything better!

Erin was able to take our puppy, Bailey, on very short notice for one day. Bailey loves Erin and all her doggy friends that she plays with at Erin's house. No better testimony than that!
Erin does such a great job. Her read on dogs is fantastic as well as her attention to detail and continuous interaction with the dogs in her care. Her love of animals shines through. Our pup had such a wonderful time. We've already booked our next stay! Highly Valued.... We'd give 10 stars if we could!

Erin looked after our 9 month old border collie and it was a wonderful experience. We could not have asked for better care. She had thought of everything and was so attentive. Beren (our dog) was introduced carefully to the other dogs and had a great time playing with them in the yard and out on walks. Erin sent us pics throughout the day and was so responsive to all messages. I could not recommend her highly enough. Thank you Erin!

Our meet-and-greet with Erin went very well. Erin was wonderful taking care of our 9 month old puppy for a full week. Erin sent many pictures to keep us posted on all the fun Bailey was having with the other dogs. Erin even administered medication to Bailey daily. Erin is very knowledgeable about dogs (she has 4 of her own)! She is very kind and obviously loves animals. She walks them everyday, lets.them run & play in her backyard, and sometimes takes them to the dog park, too. Bailey was well cared for and we will definitely use Erin again!! She even bathed Bailey so she was "squeaky clean" when we.picked her up. Awesome experience!

Erin is AWESOME!! She took exceptional care of our Flint. We received pics and videos twice daily and daily updates. Flint had plenty of playtime and two walks daily. Erin pays attention to all details and made sure our pup was well cared for. Flint had a ball while he was with her! She cared for him as if he was her own. Thank you so much, Erin!!

As always, Erin is the best dog host ever. She sends tons of pictures and videos, she tells me detailed stories about my dog each day, she makes sure my dog gets exercise and lots of attention, she is flexible with my often changing travel schedule, and, most of all, I truly believe she loves my dog *almost* as much as I do.

Best Dogsitter ever !!!
Erin's amazing! My dog Willy was so happy when I picked him up from Erin's place! She was great about sending me pictures and updates everyday. She also gave him a bath before I picked him up, so he was fresh and clean. I totally plan on using Erin again!

Erin is awesome, takes good care of the pups and send pics all the time to keep us up-to-date on what they're doing and how they're behaving. Very Highly recommended!!!
Erin and her husband always take very good care of Rocco and Rylee. They have been passed out for the past two days once we got back home. It's amazing how well all the dogs she watches get along. I never worry about how they doing when they are Erin's!

5 stars for sure! (I'd give more if I could). Erin is awesome! Immediately you feel comfortable and know that your fur baby will be in good hands. She is experienced and cares for each dog as if they were her own. Any dog would be lucky to spend time at her home. She kept us updated all day long with cute pictures of Rosko and the other dogs which made us feel so happy that he was having fun while we were away. We will never take our dog to anyone else. We've already booked her again for next month. She's the best!
Thank you Erin!

Erin was so great from the very beginning! This was my first time leaving Riggins but Erin took great care of him! He had so much fun with her dogs and the other dogs staying there, he slept for 2 whole days after! Erin was great, taking them on walks, giving him love and attention, and giving me updates with lots of pics throughout the day! Riggins can't wait to go back!!

Our pups love being at Erin's and playing with all the other dogs. They were exhausted when they came home after the fun weekend. She made sure they were bathed before we arrived and seriously takes excellent care of them, like they were her own. We miss them when we go on vacation but know they are having a blast at Erin's. Thank you again and Rocco and Rylee will be back next month!

Erin is great with the pups, they had a great time in their stay with her!. Got pics everyday, twice a day.
Erin was great from start to finish. We have used Dogvacay a couple of times before but we were really impressed with Erin. We knew our beagle was going to be in good hands and never worried about him once while we were away. We will definitely be using Erin again in the future and we will be recommending her to our friends and family. Thanks again Erin!

We left our two dogs with Erin for the second time while we went on a 5 day cruise. She kept us updated via text and email with photos and fun comments about how they were doing.

We were completely comfortable leaving them with Erin while we went on vacation and will be using her again next month. Erin takes very good care of our dogs and I miss them but don't worry about how they are doing because I know they are in good hands.

Erin ensures all of the dogs there play well together and my dogs love playing with them all day long. I cannot say enough good things about how well Erin takes care of Rocco and Rylee!

I'm sorry it has taken me so long to post a review. Erin took great care of our pups! We could tell they had received lots of love and attention! Thanks Erin!
Erin is absolutely wonderful! I am so grateful to know that Otis is in great hands while I'm away. The daily texts, pictures, and email updates share his latest adventures with his new friends throughout the day and are so fun to receive. It's clear that Erin genuinely cares for all the dogs and provides excellent service to their parents, too.

Once again, Erin gave my dog a dream vacation - she walked, she ran, she played, she slept, and she made several new friends. And Erin kept me up to date on almost every minute with photo texts and email updates. She's the best dog sitter ever!
Once again, she has done an amazing job. I know my dog will be taking care of while I'm gone. Thanks Erin for loving my dog so much!
Erin was excellent with out two dogs and I'm so glad I found her on dogvacay. Everyday she would update me via text with several pictures of them playing with the other dogs that were there or just lounging around.

One of my dogs has a grass allergy. As soon as she became aware that he was itching more than necessary she gave him the necessary medicine so he did not have a full break out.

I was completely comfortable leaving Rocco and Rylee there because she took care of them like they were her own. When we got home they were completely worn out from their daily walks, bike rides and running in her large backyard.

Erin was a great dog sitter!!! She went above and beyond what I expected. I will definitely be using her again anytime we go out of town. My dog loved being there too!!!
Erin is fabulous! I love dogvacay for the photo and story updates but I never imagined I'd get so many updates - I loved it. Throughout each day, Erin sent me photos and stories of my dog's antics and each day would cap off with the official dog vacay email with more photos and more comments. My dog loved Erin's dogs and their HUGE fenced backyard! When the pup got a little muddy the last day, Erin washed her so she could come home to me spic n span. Erin also graciously dealt with a very late pick-up time that became even later when my flight was delayed. I couldn't ask for a better (or more flexible) surrogate pet mom for my little girl.

Erin is seriously terrific! My fiancée and I had a business meeting in Orlando, and last minute our dogsitter was not able to watch our dog in Atlanta. We had to scramble to find an option here, or bring him with us and leave him somewhere in Orlando during the week. Erin promptly responded to my message, and we decided to use her. She was awesome! I can't say enough good things about her. She is a genuine person and a true dog lover- and I could tell immediately that she has a huge place in her heart for animals. She even let our lab sleep in her bed with the other dogs! She constantly kept us updated via texts and pictures, too. Our lab loved playing with her dogs in her fenced-in backyard, and he got plenty of exercise between that and the daily long walks she took him on. I wish she lived in Atlanta because we still haven't found someone like her here yet! Thank you, Erin!!!

U cany go wrong with Erin! Rosie and Lincoln are repeat guests with Erin n her husband and they are the BEST!! LOVE LOVE LOVE them and so do my 4-legged kids!!
Erin took care of Hershey during our extended holiday vacation. She was truly amazing! Starting with seamless communication before Hershey's stay all the way through picking him up when we got back, the whole experience with Erin was awesome. Hershey got lots of playtime with Erin's dogs and her other doggy guests, we were updated daily with texts, including pictures. Erin lives in a nice neighborhood and her fenced backyard offers plenty of room for her dogs and doggy guests to move around and play. We're so glad to have found Erin and Hershey now has his vacation spot in Orlando!

Another great stay! My dane absolutely loves his vacations with Erin, I may start going out of town more often!
Erin and her husband are AWESOME!! LOOOVVVVE them!! (and so did my 4-legged babies.) The dogs had a great time with their new doggie friends. She sent pictures every day. My dogs had a ton of exercise which they desperately need! Terrific experience!! Even though I live in Reunion, I would definitely make the trip to their house again!!

I am absolutely overwhelmed with gratitude and satisfaction from my experience! Erin's customer service is above and beyond and I couldn't have selected a better host for my 3. I was updated regularly and the dogs seemed to have loved it. Their stay was short, but they were so comfortable there when we picked them up...it's like they were right at home. She is patient, flexible and very knowledgeable. I would definitely have my dogs vacay there again because I know they enjoyed their stay and I am confident Erin will care for them like her own. Thanks a ton Erin!!!

Erin is professional, wonderfully friendly and very knowledgeable about caring for a group of dogs as well as each pup's individual needs. Her frequent updates put me at ease while away from my fur-child and her spacious house provides ample play space for all her guests. My great dane was exhausted from all the playing and asleep five minutes after arriving home from a weekend at Erin's! He had so much fun! I highly recommend Erin if you're considering booking with dogvacay!

Erin was absolutely wonderful! She accomodated us at the last minute and kept us abreast sending pictures of Nala everyday. In one of the pictures we could see a faint smile on Nala's face :). We highly recommend her and will absolutey use her again.
Can only say excellent. And her couches, well any dog won't want to get off of them. My dogs had so much fun and I was sent pictures and updates. Definitely will have Erin again.
Erin was fantastic! She treated my dog like it was one of her own. My mind was completely at ease the entire time my dog stayed with her.
We had a wonderful experience with Erin. She is so loving. She kept us up to date with pictures and messages. She was so sweet and caring to our puppy. We are definitely coming back for more!
