About Erin

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello and thank you for checking out my credentials for caring for your pet. In June I suddenly lost my cat, Nala, to stomach cancer and really miss having my companion. I am not ready to replace her, so pet sitting feels just right!
I previously owned two beautiful pups: a labradoodle and chocolate lab in a previous life. I've also spent many nights pet sitting for family and friends, so I am familiar and comfortable doing so.
I have flexibility to work at home while pet sitting should this need arise. My place is on a third floor, but I do have an elevator as well, although I would prefer I cared for pups that can make it up and down steps.
Living right by a hiking and walking trail, your pup will have a great visit with much exercise while staying with me. I certainly will care for your pup as I would my own, following your instruction and guidance.
Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have.
I look forward to hearing from you,

Erin was a great caretaker for our French Bulldog, Albert. She was incredibly flexible with her drop off and pick up schedule and took incredible care of him. She walked him regularly, kept up with all of his food and various medication needs (which can be complicated) and even sent us a progress picture with notes of their activities. She is so very close to our house, which is only icing on the cake.
Erin was an awesome host for our dog. Although her place is not very big, she has a big heart and loves animals. We received updates and our dog adores her. We highly recommend Erin.
We came home to 2 very happy pups. Erin was great with Rufus and Sinjin, especially our Boston, Sinjin because she is so shy with new people and surroundings. Erin made sure to make her feel comfortable and safe at her home away from home. We received pictures everyday with fun notes of their activities. We really trusted Erin and were able to relax knowing that our pups were safe and having loads of fun. We will definitely book with Erin again!
Erin took excellent care of our dog Gracie! Erin was prompt with responding to our initial messages and confirming our reservation request. We appreciated how she asked good questions during our meet-and-greet and sought to stick to Gracie's routine as much as possible. It was great to receive a photo and text message update during Gracie's stay. Erin was a great fit for us because she doesn't have her own pets (our dog can be somewhat unpredictable with other dogs). All dogs will love her close proximity to Wissahickon Park trails!
Highly recommend! It was very difficult for me to find a sitter for my 75lbs pitbull. Erin was able to meet up with me and accept my request. She was excellent with updates and sent us a lot of photos. I can tell my dog had a nice vacation while we were away! If you have a special needs dog, Erin is the lifesaver!
My girlfriend, our dog (a one year and 4 month old male German Shepherd), and I met with Erin a week before going out of town. During our meet and greet Erin was extremely welcoming and nice. She felt us out and asked all the right questions. After our meet and greet we really liked her and felt confident in Erin to watch our dog.

During our trip away, Erin texted us pictures and updates letting us know how he was doing. We were really pleased with Erin and would ask her first to take care of our dog the next time we are going out of town. I can't say enough good things about her.
Erin was a lifesaver and was able to watch Nola for us with very little notice! She was excellent with communication the entire time and sent us plenty of updates and pics. We could tell she was very loving to our pup and made her feel at home. Highly recommend!
My husband and I would DEFINITELY recommend Erin!! She is amazing with our dog, we always come home to happy stress free pup (and he's a little nuts himself!!) Erin is super reliable, we totally trust her in our home and Chips loves her!! Whether it's taking our dude for long walks when we're out of town for the day, or having her stay over at our place for the weekend if we're traveling we can always count on Erin to be our surrogate dog-mama!!
Erin has a warm, positive, bubbly personality and upon meeting her I knew she would be a good caretaker for our dog. She was extremely easy to arrange a meet and greet with, and pick up and drop off times. She has a wonderfully cozy apartment and asked all the right questions about how to care for our pup. We got a couple of updates while we were away so we knew our dog was doing well. And upon picking our dog up, she didn't want to leave Erin's place. That's the best indicator that our dog had a good time!
