About Erica

I have been working in veterinary medicine since 2006, animal rescue since 2004, and offer a very specialized service. I'm able to watch small, low-key dogs at my 3 bedroom/2 bathroom home. I consider this service to be a hobby that I've been fortunate enough to monetize, rather than a business venture. As such, I see each dog as a temporary family member and generally only watch one at a time.

I have a collection of dwarf hamsters, mice, and cats, all of whom prefer to keep to themselves, though one is a former alley cat and he prefers to live on the front porch. The cats are all more than 10 years old and tend to just ignore the dogs. The house is partitioned so that everyone can have their own space if needed. My rodents are high enough so that the cats and dogs can't bother them.

I work graveyard shift at an emergency animal hospital and I usually bring the dog with me. They have free access to the kennel half of the hospital, so long as they get along with the very easy going, 3 year old cat that lives there. I don't allow the dog to go to the medical side by use of a baby gate, so I can monitor them even when emergencies come in. If I have free time, I sit in the kennel area and let other small dogs (only ones who board frequently enough that I know their personality) out of the kennels to socialize.

She is wonderful, accommodating and kind, my dog loves her. I keep coming back because it is his home away from home.
Erica cared for my Louie as family! She carefully attended to his needs. He is an elderly dog (14yrs and 9 mo) and I can tell that the care was outstanding because he was relaxed and happy when I went to pick him up. She is a wonderful addition to my family! As long as she is available, she will always be my choice for Louie if I have to leave town. Thank you Erica for being so kind and loving to my old man Louie. You are the best.

I'm overdue reviewing Erica for the last few times she has watched our dog, Judy. Judy is always very well-taken care of during her stay at Erica's lovely home. I really appreciate the extra attention she and her family give Judy!
