About Erin

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have been the owner of beagles and a basset hound for the last 14 years. I routinely watch friends' and family members' dogs and cats (in their houses or mine). I can provide references if necessary.

I do work full-time during the week. So if you're going on vacation, your dog would either be alone during the day or I can transport him/her to their regular day care, if you use one. Some people have a neighbor or family member let their animals out during the day.

Matilda is excellent with other dogs. She is laid back and friendly. She has attended doggie day care since she was a puppy and she is used to other dogs being in our home/my care.

We have plenty of toys and plenty of couch and bed space to share! Please note we do live three flights of stairs up from the ground, so your dog needs to be able to do the stairs or small enough for me to carry.

I have had dogs that have seizures, allergies, gastric issues, regular medication, etc.. I also live less than ten minutes from the Emergency Veterinarian Hospital in Manchester.

Also, although it says I will only watch one dog at a time in my home, if you have "siblings," I will absolutely have two dogs over.

We walk at the Rail Trail (about five minutes from my home) and we go to the Derry Dog Park, but only if your dog has been to a dog park or in that kind of environment in the past (and has done well).

Any other questions or requests, just ask!

Erin did a fantastic job. I had planned a night away from home and wanted Lucy (my cocker spaniel) to have a fun night away also ! I found Erin on DogVacay and she lived very close by and welcomed Lucy right into her home. She sent a couple emails/texts prior just to let me know what to bring. After I dropped Lucy off at Erin's for the night, Erin sent me lots of cute pictures of Lucy going for a walk or hanging out with Erin's dog, Matilda. I think Lucy had a great time ! I am sure that I will call on Erin again for future Dog Vacays. Thank you Erin !
Erin watched out dog for a weekend and really did a wonderful job. She was super nice and very accommodating and flexible with pickup times. She also kept me updated with lots of pictures, which were appreciated. We would recommend her any time.
Erin took excellent care of our dog Tonka in our home. We were away for 4 days and needed Erin to follow a specific diet and routine for Tonka.
Erin did a great job in making sure that Tonka had his daily medication and was very careful about his diet and needs.

Upon coming home, our dog was healthy and happy and our home was left clean and neat - I would hire her again in the future!
Erin was great!! My dog loved her and her dog Matilda!! Highly recommed her!!!
Erin made a home visit to feed and walk Charlie. She sent updates as to what was happening, one of which was he went swimming, which he had never done before! I believe he had a great time because he's still swimming!!
We are grateful for Erin and the wonderful care she took of our puppy while we traveled for 4 days. Our puppy can be shy and particular about who he is comfortable with and Erin's confidence and care in handling him made him adjust quickly. She sent pictures and updates every day, helping us know that he was being well cared for and kept busy. Oh, and I personally fell in love with her Basset Hound, Mathilda! So precious!
Hi Erin W,
Thanks so much for taking such good care of Buddy and Zoe yesterday. I hope they were well behaved. It was so nice to be able to enjoy my husband's surprise birthday party and not have to worry about them. Seeing the pictures you sent helped me to relax more. I can't thank you enough.
I'll certainly call you again in the future.

I can't thank Erin enough for taking such good care of Molly. We got frequent updates and photos to let us know what our dog was doing well, which was appreciated more than she'll ever know. It's been two days since Molly has been home and she is still tuckered out from playing with Matilda! We will absolutely have Erin watch Molly again in the future!
Erin was awesome! We received frequent updates with pictures and Tucker came home a tired and happy pup from all the play time he had! She even sent home a goodie bag of treats which he loved as well!
