About Erika

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
If you are looking for a pet caretaker with flexibility, reliability, and experience, please consider giving us a try!

I have 2 years of experience as a daycare pack leader and trainer, as well as 8 years raising and caring for my own animals. I volunteer with the Dane County Humane Society and the wildlife rehabilitation clinic. I have administered medication orally and through injection.

Shaula is my 3 year old boxer/pit bull/beagle mix who is simply full of energy and loves to play! She loves meeting new people and dogs, and if your dog is playful too, they will be tired when it's time to go back home!
My condo is large enough to provide a relaxing atmosphere for those who prefer a more laid back day. I have extra rooms, gates, and crates to help create the perfect atmosphere and adapt to any situation. After all, dogs, like people, can act differently depending on who they're around.

I also offer grooming, bathing, and running services if that sounds just right for your pup!

Give us a try and you won't be disappointed!

I can't explain the horror when we found out Erika had left Emma all along in our home. We had met Erika before our weekend away so she could meet Emma and get instructions on Emmas care. She was instructed that Emma is always to be put in her kennel when left alone. On Saturday morning my daughter stop by our house and found Emma loose and alone. She called and of course I called Erika immediately. Erika stated she forgot to put Emma in her kennel and she really didn't think it was a big deal. Here we were out of town and we didn't know what to do. It was very obvious that Erika wasn't taking care of Emma and we were fearful of the damage that could of happened to our home. We called into DogVacay and reported the situation but they were unable to find anyone to care for Emma that night. We ended up having my daughter put Emma in her kennel and Emma had to stay there all night by herself. See my daughter was in the hospital and unable to stay. We were completely stressed the rest of the evening and woke early to head home. The trust I had bestowed on Erika was completely destroyed. I just hope this never happens to anyone else.

We really appreciated Erika staying with our dog while we were gone. Cali was happy when we got home, and the house was just as we had left it. Thank you, Erika!
We were totally satisfied and are hiring Ericka again this spring!
