About Erin

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

I'm a stay at home mom able to watch your dog! I've owned terriers my whole life. I grew up with a Cairn now I have a male Wheaten Terrier named Buster. Buster gets along well with all female dogs and low key male dogs. I have a large fenced in back yard, great for playing fetch! There will always be someone around to love and spoil your dog while you are on vacation. I will send regular pictures and updates! Weather permitting we will do a long daily walk at Stonehurst Forest in Waltham so it is a plus if your dog is good off leash for maximum exercise!!

Due to the extra care and walks that puppies require there my puppy rate is $65 per night. I'm sorry but I can not accept dogs that are not house broken.

I have a baby and 3 year old son so it is important that your dog is ok around kids. No drop offs before 8am or pick ups after 8pm. Please book am extra day if necessary. I'm always happy to arrange a meet and greet.

Do you want your pup to meet you at the airport and drop you at home? $60 airport fee pick up/ drop off fee. Ask for a custom quote!

Thank you!

Erin and her family took such good care of Wally! He was well cared for and loved for almost two weeks while we were away, and Erin made sure to stay in daily contact with us.Thank you!!
Erin does a fantastic job caring for our dog Haley. We often times receive pictures of Haley relaxing with her kids or running off-leash in the woods. Thank you Erin!
Erin and her family are very sweet, they took good care of Pinpon, they had alot of patience with her because she usually takes a while to get used to new people, she sent many pictures, thank you so much!
Gracie our 5 year old 7 pound Perkapoo just had a wonderful vacay with Erin and family. Erin was easy to coordinate drop off and pick up, took Gracie on fun walks, and gave her special love and attention. Erin sent us pictures everyday so we could see what adventures they were having.
We will definitely ask Erin to give Gracie another vacay in the future!
Excellent Experience! Left my dog for a weekend where he was taken on plenty of walks and I received lots of pictures. Definitely recommend.
As a dog parent who always hates having to leave my dog anywhere and anytime, I always read these reviews with care! As such, this review is heart-felt! My Yorkie loved his time spent with Erin and very cute young family. Erin is a dog person and this is clear. I could see when picking my fur baby up after almost a week away, that Bear didn't want to leave! He was relaxed and looked at Erin as a long lost friend! She was the best. Pictures were sent and ongoing commentary of his day were shared. I was as relaxed being away as possible!
I would absolutely recommend this wonderful family for all your boarding needs. I have already reserved my next time away.
We've had nothing but great experiences with Erin's care the two times we booked her -
She is super professional and very responsive, even able to fit us in last minute! Her dog, Buster, is great with other dogs! Erin has even taken them on adventures together to hiking trails and the dog park. Truly an awesome Vacay for my dog, plus I receive photo updates throughout the day, so I know he is having a great time!
Our shepherd mix recently stayed 9 days with Erin and her family, and we couldn't be happier with our dogvacay choice! This is the longest we have left our dog with someone, and he also has somewhat special needs (allergies, hip dysplasia), so I was a bit anxious. My anxiety soon went away as we started receiving daily pictures and text updates from Erin showing our dog happy and frolicking with his new friends. He slept for almost the entire day after we picked him up, so we knew he also enjoyed his vacation. We will definitely use Erin again!
Erin was great, responsive, and lovely to deal with. Easy drop off and pick up at convenient times and it was no hassle at all. Most importantly the dogs seemed very happy. We got text messages almost every day with pics and video of our 2 wheatons having a great time with her; taking walks, playing with each other, and just laying around the house relaxing. She is a true dog person! - She did not flinch when our Sandy got nervous when we she got there and pooped on the floor (of course my husband was mortified) and when our dogs climbed all over her indoor and outdoor couches. When our dogs got home with us after vacation we could tell that they had been well cared for. They were calm and happy which has not been the case in the past when we had used other dog care places. We would definitely use her services again for our next vacation if she is available!!
Erin is awesome! After prior plans fell through I needed a last minute sitter for two nights for my dog, Duke (~100 lbs lab mutt). Erin was super accommodating with drop off times, and kept me in the loop with everything via text, like asking if it were ok to take Duke to different places, photos of his adventures, etc. She even cooked him carrots to calm his upset stomach his first night away from me, reassuring me that it's not uncommon for that to happen a pup's first night away. Duke's typically a huge momma's boy but he didn't even want to leave when I came to get him! I absolutely plan to use Erin's services again and wholeheartedly recommend her!
Was available on short notice, no problems and my dog didn't seem to want to leave. Would definitely use Erin again.
Erin was so very amazing and accommodating! She is a true dog lover and understands nervous pet owners. Would definitely use again!
Erin was excellent! She was able to accommodate my dog, Reggie, only the day before we left for our vacation and was wonderful throughout his entire stay. She kept us up to date with photos of him and made us feel comfortable leaving him from the moment we dropped him off. Also, he made a great friend in Erin's dog, Buster and came home one very tired and happy pup!

Thank you so much, Erin! We will definitely be bringing him back to you next time!
Erin was dependable and responsive throughout the process. Jack had a great time at her house and I felt completely reassured during my vacation. Jack managed to get himself sprayed by a skunk and Erin handled it very professionally. She clearly loves dogs! I couldn't have been more satisfied.
My dog Banjo had such a great time with Erin during his vacay. Erin sent us pictures each day and when we returned I could tell he was a very happy worn out pup. I definitely recommend Erin to anyone looking for a fun and safe place for their dog to stay. She did a great job!
Erin was nice and had a nice house and yard. I got a few pictures and was very happy with her service.
I can’t say enough good things about Erin and highly recommend her! Her house was a very welcoming and friendly environment for myself (nervous about leaving my pup) and my dog Hydro. Though I have the feeling he wasn’t quite as nervous about being left as he was already making a new friend in Buster in that quite large backyard of theirs. I felt she was truly engaged and cared about my dog's well being while being very responsive to my messages as well.
Izzy had a great stay with Erin and Buster over the fourth of july weekend when we couldn't take her along!
Hi Erin was very good. She took care of my dog and sent pictures throughout the week of her playing etc. She had everything ready when I came to pick her up. Highly recommended
When I went to a wedding out of state for the weekend, my dog Boone stayed with Erine and had the best time! From the moment I arrived at her lovely home to drop him off, I immediately noticed how welcoming and dog-friendly her family was. Her home is a dog's paradise, complete with a HUGE fenced in backyard, which was perfect for tiring out my energetic pup. Over the weekend she sent numerous updates (pics included) to let me know that Boone was doing fine and getting along with everyone. As a sometimes nervous dog parent of a sometimes stubborn dog, this was perfect for me- she was always easy to reach, quick to respond, and clearly had a way with dogs. When I picked Boone up, it was obvious that Erine and her family had treated him like one of their own. He didn't want to leave! I couldn't recommend Erine enough as a dogsitter and will definitely be requesting her again in the future.
Erine did a great job of taking care of our 2 young dogs (ages 2 and 3). The fenced in backyard was perfect for our Beagle who is really good at escaping. She kept us updated with pictures and was easy to get in contact with. Our dogs are "vacaying" with her again this week! Thanks Erine!
Erine cares Mika just like her own dogs or kids. She even soap her when she gets dirty! I am definitely gonna come back.
