About Eric

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Near 14th & U. If you want your dog to get a lot of attention, enjoy plenty of walks and even get to check out the local dog park (with your permission), then you have come to the right spot!

I am a big dog lover who will care for your dog as if it they were my own! Trust me, Hank, my "child", goes everywhere with me. He is 5 years old and I have raised him since being 10 weeks old. My sister-in-law reminds me all the time that I take better care of Hank than she does of her own kids.

I provide a safe and dog friendly home for great social interaction and playtime.

I have lived in DC for over 20 years.

We live in a two level townhouse (with a medium size backyard) on the 1400 block of Swann St. We are 2 blocks away from the S Street Dog Park and a 1/2 block from 14th street and City Paws.

There is a lot of open space, toys and the joy of being permitted on all the furniture! We have fun! I strongly believe in the cliche, a tired dog is a happy dog!

We enjoy long walks and checking what is going on in the neighborhood (Meridian Hill Park, Dupont and Logan Circle).

If you would like references, please let me know! I have taken care of many furry friends and they are always excited to come back to visit and hang out.

Eric and his pup Hank have a great townhouse just off of U Street and minutes from Dupont in Northwest DC. The townhouse has its own fenced-in backyard that is a perfect play space for any dog. But if thats not enough, it is also a short walk away from several dog parks in the neighborhood!

Hank is an easy going lab mix that would love to share his space with a new friend. If he's not playing in the backyard or hanging out with other dogs at the park, you can normally find him lounging on the furniture. All of which he would gladly share with a fellow canine friend!

A stay with Eric and Hank would be a guaranteed good time for any pup!

Eric took care of our dog and it was our first time with a dogsitter, so I was a little bit nervous but Eric made me feel comfortable, sent us a ton of pics of Barkley and Hank having a good time together. He really treated him like he would his own pet. I was scared he wouldn't want to come home to boring mom and dad!

Our dog has stayed with Eric multiple times and we couldn't be happier with how smoothly things have gone. Eric is incredibly kind, patient, and loving with our pup. He makes sure our dog gets plenty of exercise and bathroom breaks. He always sends photo updates and communicates clearly. Eric's dog (Hank) is very well behaved and doesn't mind sharing the couch! :) Our dog absolutely loves Hank. We feel very lucky to have found Eric through DogVacay. We highly recommend him to every pet owner!

Raven had an amazing time with Eric! He took wonderful care of her and updated me daily with pictures and messages. They went to the dog park and long walks daily. Raven was truly on vacation as well. Thank you Eric!
