Crate-Trained Dogs Only
Erika was excellent. She consistently communicated with me throughout my trip away and checked in during each of her visits. I felt very comfortable with her and my dogs loved her. It is difficult for me to feel comfortable with anyone taking care of my babies so it was such a huge relief! I will definitely hire her again to watch my pups and would recommend her wholeheartedly.
Erika was awesome. She sent us pictures and videos of our dog. Our dog, Yogi, enjoyed staying with Erika and playing with her dog. I could tell as the first night after getting back home, he slept like a rock.
I highly recommend Erika and will let her take care of Yogi anytime we need it.
Erika was prompt each morning, communicated with me and I have a happy dog. Coco and I gives her 5 stars!
Animals Are Family
Having owned dogs and animals my whole life, I know how difficult it can be to part with your pet while you’re away. When your dog stays with me – a loving, attentive mom and dog owner – they’ll feel cared for as if they were at home.
I love how each dog has their own personality. They are very complex, just like humans, and it takes time to learn their personalities. I also love ...
What Erika would like to know about your dog
I’d like to know about any issues with aggression, and how your dog handles introductions to new dogs and people. Any time I introduce a new dog to mine, I always do it without the visiting dog’s owners in the room. This is because I know this is a very exciting moment for both animals and I don’t want the visiting dog to feel they need to protect their owner and possibly be aggressive. I also do not believe in introducing with leashes attached, as this can also spark aggression. My dog has been around numerous dogs and I always just let them sniff it out in a neutral area of my home. I pay close attention to any tension on either part, and I know how to handle these situations — I quickly get in between and let them know I am the pack leader. Like I said, I have a lot of experience with many breeds.
