About Erin

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a dog enthusiast who recently had to put my puppy down due to neurological issues. I'm not quite ready for another dog of my own, but would love to spend time caring for yours while you're away! I know how difficult it can be to leave a dog with someone new, but I assure you that your furry friend will have a wonderful time! And while I will be the one caring for your dog, I have a roommate who is also a dog lover and will be a source of extra attention and love.

I've dog sat for pups of all ages, sizes, and breeds. I live in a dog-friendly building with elevators, and am close to two dog parks. If dog parks aren't your thing, there's plenty of space for long walks in the neighborhood. I'm also an avid runner, so if the weather isn't terrible and your dog has some running experience, I'd happily bring him/her out with me!

I also understand the importance of seeing your dog while you're away, so you can expect lots of pictures and videos!

I honestly do not know if I have ever met a bigger dog lover than Erin. Whether it be seeing a dog on the street, continuously looking for an adoption pup, or being the first to offer her services to dogsit. My roommate and I have used Erin frequently to watch our dog either while we are on vacation or just for an overnight stay. The pup comes back clearly having been exercised and based upon her greetings to Erin, we know there is a true love there. I would trust Erin to watch any breed as she has experience with small to large dogs, and a variety of breeds including pitbulls. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a dogsitter.

I've known Erin for several years. So when I got my corgi, Willow, asking her to dog sit was a no-brainer. Erin has experience with all kinds of dogsā€”puppies, groups, even some who need a little extra TLC, and I whole-heartedly trust her to take care of mine. She navigated introducing my then 6 month old puppy to new dogs and people with ease. Willow had a great time staying and playing with Erin, and as a new dog owner it was a great to get pictures and thoughtful updates while I was away. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Erin to anyone.

Erin is so great! She is incredibly reliable and kind. Our dog, Kita had pretty bad separation anxiety but she has become so comfortable with Erin- a testament to Erin's care! She goes out of her way to spend extra time with Kita especially right when we leave to provide extra comfort. We hated leaving Kita at a kennel and felt so guilty when we did, but we feel so at ease leaving her with Erin. She even sends us regular text updates and pictures of Kita while we're gone! Would highly recommend Erin!

Erin has watched my dog many times and has always been great. I trust her completely to give my dog the time and care that he needs when I'm away and she is always the first person I think of when I need a dog sitter.

Erin was fantastic! I felt like my dogs were truly at a home away from home. Constant updates like we asked and we felt at ease with them there!
Erin was amazing. I've never felt more at ease leaving my dog someplace. She was super flexible and accommodating and just all around wonderful. I almost don't want to leave a great review because I'm afraid she'll be scooped up :) I am soooo happy almost don't want to leave a great review because I'm afraid she'll be scooped up :) I am soooo happy to finally have a reliable, comfortable, loving place where I know my dog will be spoiled. Thank you, Erin!

My pup's visit with Erin was wonderful! We had a last minute change in our original plans, and Erin was more than accommodating throughout it all. We received pics throughout the weekend, and we already have her lined up for another visit!
