Great sitter! Did everything needed with complete understanding of our pets and house-sitting. Totally befriended our two shelties - played, walked, picked up, made them follow commands, and, of course, snuggled. Erica sent pictures and updates everyday. When we got home, dogs were mellow and content, which for our little guys isn't the norm after we've been gone for several days. We really appreciated her intelligence, courtesy and work ethic. Would definitely hire her again!
Erica has been around dogs and taking care of them since she was a small child. She is great with animals, very sensitive to their moods. She is capable, competent and diligent. She will take care of your pet like it is her own.
Erica is an excellent dog sitter. I have always trusted her to watch my 2yr old German Shepherd, Sadie. She does such an incredible job. Sadie is not the easies dog to look after. As a rescue, she has anxiety but Erica does a great job of managing all of her special needs, especially when taking her walks. She is patient, loves and treats Sadie just as she would her own dog.
Walks,Treats, and Playtime, Oh My!
Hi! My name is Erica, and I want to meet your dog! I love all furry animals, but dogs are my favorite! I've owned dogs the majority of my life and spent 2 years volunteering at the Oregon Humane Society before leaving for college, and even in college I help out my roommate and neighbors with petsitting and training (owners and pets alike). I have experience with traditional and clicker training, dog bathing/grooming, and ...
What Erica would like to know about your dog
I would usually like the opportunity to meet you and your dog(s) first, to build rapport and ease some of the jitters and nerves.
I would like to know about any allergies or diet restrictions, behavioral triggers (squirrels, mailman, other animals, etc) favorite treat, favorite toy, and where they are usually walked. I have no breed preferences- as long as they're furry and friendly, we'll get along great!
