About Erin

11 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am looking for some puppy love to mend a broken heart. In May of 2012, I lost my best friend, Daphne, to cancer. We were together for 11 years, and it has been very hard living without her. Though I know I will one day adopt another furry friend, I'm just not ready yet. In the meantime, to fill that void and get my furry fix, I am opening up my home to care for others' animals.

I grew up with dogs and have much experience caring for and loving dogs of all sizes and personalities. I have a spacious one bedroom apartment on the first floor of an animal-friendly building. My building even has a ramp, so it's the perfect place for pups who are not comfortable with stairs. Dogs will feel at home in my apartment.

I will provide at least 3 walks a day, updates via email or text (with photos!), and lots of love and playtime. I would prefer a meet and greet prior to booking a reservation (though not mandatory) and promise to give 100% of my love for animals to your special furry one.

I do work during the week (M-F, 8:30am-6pm) in Manhattan, so I may not be the best fit if your pup is used to mid-day walks.

Thank you for checking out my profile. I look forward to meeting you and your pup!

Erin was amazing! Our baby, Dean, had the best time. She made sure to send pictures every day we were away, and was so flexible and accommodating to our schedule. We will be using Erin again and every time we are away.
Erin was a perfect match for Penny! She responded quickly and we felt reassured that Penny would be in such great care our two weeks away. We were kept updated with photos and messages whilst we were away, and Erin was very responsive when Penny needed her care. I will definitely book Erin again in the near future!

Erin is incredible! She is flexible, loving and has a sweet disposition that makes any furry animal feel comfortable!
This is at least the fifth time I've left my dog in Erin's care. I can't imagine it being the last.
Erin was wonderful! She took care of Sasha's needs, and she made her feel right at home. We would use her again.
Erin is awesome! I always feel a little worried leaving Peetie because adore him and he has some issues with other dogs. From the first time I met Erin I knew they were going to get along great! She sent me pics and updated me on how he was doing and it was so clear that he was well loved while I was gone.
He was such a happy boy when I picked him up and I could tell he had a great time.
Thank you Erin, you made this experience so amazing for us both!

Erin was great with our dog Ringo! He was well taken care of and had a great time. Erin sent us several photo updates over the course of the week and was very responsive. Thanks again Erin!
Erin is Herschel's top-choice caretaker.
Herschel loves staying with Erin K. I will always check Erin's availability before researching other options for dog care when needed.
Erin has looked after my Roxy several times now and I'm still so happy to have found her on DogVacay. She is phenomenal: she communicates promptly, has taken excellent care of my little dog, and is just a delight to interact with. I look forward to using her services again in the future. I highly recommend her!

Erin was a great help! Courteous and kind, she was very accommodating to our schedule. My dog took to her immediately and looked as though he thoroughly enjoyed his stay.

Thanks again Erin for your help! I will most definitely give you a call whenever we need a petsitter.

Erin was fantastic as usual. It was clear Herschel bonded with her and that is what keeps me coming back.
Erin was a wonderful host for Charlie. She met with us the week before, even though she'd just gotten back to town, and when we had to extend our trip, she was happy to cover the full weekend. During our trip, she updated us with pictures of our dog hanging out. He looked like he felt at home.

Amazing host. She really seems to love the dogs she's watching and shared pictures with us everyday. Our dog Henry has severe arthritis and she had no problems caring for him, giving him medicine and even carrying him down the 3 steps from her front door.

Erin puts our minds at such ease, and our dog Lady obviously loves her! Happy to be repeat clients!
Erin took great care of Herschel while I was away for six days. Herschel clearly developed a strong bond with Erin, he was clearly hoping shew would follow him out the door when we departed her apartment after her stay.
This was the second time that my dachshund Roxy stayed with Erin. Everything was excellent again this second time around. I'm just so glad to have found Erin. Roxy really enjoyed her repeat stay! Erin is wonderful, attentive, and super-easy to work with. Thanks agian, Erin! Till next time.

Erin made my first DogVacay experience seamless and comforting. On our first meeting, it was obvious that he would be in good hands. Her home is cute and cozy - perfect for Cody who likes cushy things to sleep on. She sent pictures regularly during his stay and made me feel totally at ease with her calm demeanor and willingness to answer my regular "how's he doing?" texts.

I highly recommend Erin!

We know Erin treated Lady as if she was her own. We are so grateful how comfortably she took on our gentle giant. Erin also stopped by our place to care for our beloved ornery kitty. We will certainly be reaching out again when other pet sitting needs arise.

Erin is awesome!! She is very responsive and easy to communicate with. She got along very well with my dog Roxy. I received multiple photo updates every day, and it was just comforting to know that Roxy was well cared for while I was traveling, and that she was having a good time to boot. I would rely on Erin again in a heartbeat when I need someone to look after my dog. Thanks so much Erin. Roxy and I will see you soon!

Erin was amazing with our little Delilah. She was extremely flexible with meet and greet and dropoff/pickup times. She knows dogs and it shows. Delilah always takes a bit of time to warm up to anyone - especially in a new environment - but it was clear from the pictures throughout the weekend that she took to Erin quite quickly. We received a photo/text update over the weekend and she was also quick to respond to texts on our way out and way back to the city. Overall a great first experience for us using DogVacay and we will definitely go back to Erin when we need someone to watch Delilah in the future. Thank you!!

This was the second time my dog got to stay with Erin, and just like the first time, he loved it. Erin sent me updates and photos and was attentive to my dog's leg injury. I highly recommend her - she's the best dog boarding I've ever had!
Erin was wonderful, She is sweet and warm and really love dogs, We had some problem with our flights and Erin was supportive and understanding. Highly recommended.
After a meet and greet with Erin, I knew my little Cheerio had found a "vacation home". I had only had Cheerio for 1 week when I unfortunately had to go out of town for the weekend. I was grateful that Erin was able to take my last minute reservation. Cheerio is a 5-year old terrier who had to have her eyes removed because of a serious infection that she had as a stray. Erin was so calm and loving with Cheerio and when we got her back Cheerio seemed to be more at ease and happy. I plan to use Erin again and highly recommend her as a sitter!

Erin was great! She made it so easy for me to leave my dog with her, and my dog was instantly in love with her. I will always feel good if he is staying with Erin!
Erin was an excellent host! Her demeanor is so sweet and calm, our 6 month old puppy, Maple, was immediately at ease with her. It was amazing. She also sent us photos and messages everyday to reassure us everything was alright. I loved seeing photos of our pup while we were away, we really missed her! I'm glad Maple had fun and seemed so happy with Erin, I would never hesitate to call her again if we have to leave town. Thanks Erin!!

Our dog River had a great time with Erin! He immediately took to her, which is a big deal because he is a nervous greyhound with separation anxiety. He often refuses to eat or go on walks when he's away from his family. Erin was so patient and sweet with him that River forgot about his anxieties almost entirely. He ate his food, walked around the block and even played in her apartment! She sent us regular updates, which really helped us enjoy our vacation even more. Erin was the perfect host - I highly recommend her! She'll be our go-to whenever we're heading out of town.

Erin is a great sitter! When everyone's schedules line up, I will most certainly book with her again.
Erin was great. We will definitely try to book her again for our next vacation. She send us pictures and updates on a daily basis. She immediately took a liking to our boxer and gave us the feeling that she enjoyed the companionship just as much as our dog liked chilling out with Erin.
