About Erika

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Let me care for your furry buddy! My experience includes over 4 years of work at both a veterinarian office and a pet store, plus fostering animals for the Humane Society - all because I adore them. I am away at Stanford, so my motivation for pet-sitting is to have pets in my life again- borrowing your fuzzy buddy to babysit would be the highlight of my day. My family dog was a dalmation-mix rescue but I love all breed sizes.

My place has outdoor green space nearby and lots of quiet, safe residential roads for walkies. There are no stairs so it is suitable for older dogs. As a student, my schedule is wide open and enables me to provide care and attention throughout the day. I am fit and happy to take more active dogs on runs or off-leash (at your instruction).

I will provide you with daily updates on your pet so you know they are safe and happy. To keep everyone healthy, dogs must have current flea and tick prevention and up-to-date vaccines.

I have cared for puppies, kittens, adult and senior cats and dogs, as well as all small animals, fish, reptiles and rodents. My background in vet care includes routine care, administering special diets, working with "problem" pets, providing oral medication, caring for pets with IVs and identifying symptoms of concern that merit vet attention.

I know these little ones are a member of the family. I promise the care and special attention they deserve at a level of professionalism far beyond that of the usual dog lover.

Erika is awesome! She was very accommodating of my early drop off time and updated me many times throughout the day with pictures of Cass. When I dropped Cassidy off for his second day there he seemed right at home. I will definitely be booking again!

Working with Erika was fantastic. She is very professional and communicative. I received daily updates regarding my pup and how he was doing. She answered all my questions in a timely fashion - I have no concerns with working with her, and would likely recommend her to my friends! She's in a great location for me, which made dropping off and picking up the pup super easy. 10/10 - would vacay again.

The experience with Erika was great. She is a very capable dog sitter. I felt very comfortable leaving my dog with her. She gave my dog plenty of exercise and attention. The only reason I gave a 4 instead of a 5 was that she was a little late returning from a walk and I had to wait until they got back to get my dog. But I would definitely recommend her and use her again!

Erika was a pleasure to book and communicate with. She was prompt and professional, and our dog seemed to be very happy with her dog-walking services! We look forward to booking with her again.
Erika was great! She was able to work us in on short notice during the holidays and took excellent care of our puppy!
Erika was fantastic. You can tell she is very comfortable around dogs and connected quickly with our 8-year old Boxer mix. She sent daily updates with pics, was very clean and considerate, and even washed her own sheets/towels when she left. I would definitely recommend her.
