About Erin

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello, Moms and Dads!

Welcome to Little Paws Furbaby Care in Laveen, AZ! My name is Erin Hightower and my husband is Marques Hightower.

Choose a job you love and you will never work a day in your life. Make your passion your paycheck! This is what I have done, and this is why I love what I do.

Your furbaby will be treated as if they were my own. You can travel and work worry-free, because I provide 24/7 love and attention. My goal is for your furbaby to feel comfortable and to keep their at home routine while their parents are away. I get very attached, but don't worry, I always give them back! ;)

I have been caring for dogs all of my life. I love all breeds, but have chosen to only invite small to medium dogs into the house because of our two cats, McKinley and Marina. They make the perfect cuddle buddies for your small to medium sized pup, but they run and hide from the bigger ones.

I do not currently have dogs or children, so your furbaby is my number one priority. The most I ever have for daycare or boarding is two dogs. I take in just a couple at a time so that they are getting the attention they deserve.

Our home has a fenced in backyard for fresh air and potty breaks and the park is directly across the street. The backyard has a pool, so your fur-kid will always be supervised.

Each day I provide 2+ walks around the neighborhood pond and unlimited indoor/outdoor playtime at home. If you board over the weekend, I also include a trip to the library to walk the lake.

I am able to supervise 24x7 if I know that your dog cannot be left alone. I have had dogs with separation anxiety in the past. This is never a problem for me because this IS my full time job.

I will provide transportation to a vet in case of a pup-mergency. I also offer bathing, additional walks, and care for elderly or disabled dogs. If you need to board for the holidays, I am available!

I also love cats and am happy to stay at your house or visit your cat(s) while you're away. I am open to watching any other pets you may have, including exotics, at your house.

If you have questions, do not hesitate to ask. You can message me on here or text/call at 309-262-4001. I look forward to meeting you and your furbaby!

Erin is such a blessing! I travel quite a bit for work and Erin takes such good care of my little bambi! Bambi, my 1 lb. Yorkie loves to stay and play with Erin and her family. I can go to work knowing my fur baby is taking care of stress free. She's the only person I trust leaving my fur baby with. You can tell the moment you meet Erin, she has a warm loving heart and passion for animals! Especially cats and dogs. Thank you Erin for taking care of my precious fur baby.

Erin is THE best person you could ever have to take care of your animals. She is the most caring, loving, and sweetest person in the world. She definitely knows how to speak a dog's language and animals love her. If you pet Erin sit your dogs, they will be the most loved dogs in the world and they will get red carpet treatment. There's nobody else I would trust to take care of my animals than Erin.

Erin is the most loving and caring person I know. She has a passion for animals and loves every animal she sees. No matter if she knows the animal or not, she always shows passion love for the little furbaby and makes it feel loved.

Erin loves all animals like they are part of her own family. She is loving, fun and will treat your furry baby like it is a precious, cherished human baby. You will feel so reassured knowing your best friend is in her care. She is very perceptive, compassionate and caring. I would feel like we are giving our puppy a wonderful, fun vacation while in this lady's care.

No one has a more caring heart for animals than Erin ! She has loved, spoiled and adored all our dogs over the years, I would trust her without hesitation to take care of our furry angels while we're away.

Erin is a wonderful person and and incredible animal lover! She has taken care of my kitty on many occasions and every time I leave her in Erin's hands, I know Kira will be well taken care of. Erin goes above and beyond--not only making sure Kira has food, water, and a clean litter box, but also lots of love and affection! I always get updates and pictures from Erin and it comforts me to know Kira is happy and purring. Erin also takes care of dogs on a regular basis--whether opening up her home or going to their home to take care of them--she loves every minute of it and takes pride in her responsibilities. Your pets will get great exercise, extra TLC, and lots of kisses from Erin! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for pet care.

Erin is a animal lover. She has had dogs and cats her entire life. My wife and I have two labs and she is just about the only person that we would trust with our dogs. They are our family so extremely important to us.

Erin is the friendliest person I have ever met! This makes her a natural fit for animals that both require and love attention. Erin is attentive to detail, caring, and an exceptional human being. If your pet could talk, they would say, "Please let Erin baby sit us again!" If you let Erin babysit your pet, you will never search for a babysitter again!

I would trust Erin any day with my fur child! She loves animals and they are family to her...even if she just is watching a friends dog or cat for a few days. She is a dear friend and your fur babies will love hanging out with her.

I've known Erin Hightower for 10+ years and she has always had a love for animals. She has dogsat all of my dogs over the years and has done an amazing job! Erin has cared for my Boston terrier, German Shepard, American bulldog,and my rescue pitbull. She has always been able to stay in command and yet be their best friend the whole time. Erin is a smart, well educated, professional and there is nobody else I would leave my babies with! Not only have I experienced Erin's ability first hand working at a doggie daycare together, but I've also witnessed Erin with her own dogs in the past. She is wonderful with them! So patient :) We recommend Erin to all of our friends!

Last week was our first time trying Dogvacay.

My wife and I are extremely satisfied with our yorkie-poo Kai Bear's daycare visit with Erin.

Her home was clean and safe which made us feel very comfortable to leave our pup there.

We really liked the well check pictures she sent us throughout the day. We have never seen our pup so happy and well cared for vs. the traditional commercial daycare we have tried in the past.
The one-on-one personal attention is exactly what we are looking for.

We can tell Kai liked being there as well because when we arrived to pick him up and rang the doorbell, he was barking as if he was protecting her home also.

Thank you Erin for taking great care of our Kai Bear.
We will definitely use your services in the future.

I would give Erin 10 stars if allowed. I am so happy to have found her. She made it very easy to not worry about my dogs while being on vacation. I don't go away often because of them but now since I found Erin, I will be able to. Erin sent pictures every day and video even which was wonderful. Anyone looking for someone reliable, trustworthy, nice and personable, look no further. I have 100% faith and confidence in Erin!

Erin was amazing with constant updates on how my pups were doing, she sent me pictures daily (which I really enjoyed and appreciated.) My dogs had a great time at her place and I would recommend her to everyone and anyone! Especially those who constantly worry about leaving your fur-babies at others' houses, like me. I will for sure use her again next time I go out of town.

My pup will be back with Erin soon! Erin is the best! My lil Bambi did not want to leave her and her kitties. Bambi is starting to bond with Erin and her kitties! She's amazing! Thank you Erin! See you next week!
We had to leave our family dog "Toco" behind for a couple of days during our trip. Erin could not have been the better choice if your dog needs to be with someone other than your immediate family member... Erin even lets Toco sleep on her bed and the photo showed how Toco enjoyed staying at Erin's. We were very pleased and highly recommend Erin to take care of your dog when you need to be away...
