Erika is a dog trainer and worked with Maggie each day to help with her deep-seated fears and anxieties. She walked Maggie twice a day and helped lessen her displeasure with other dogs. We are grateful for Erika’s hard work and dedication and highly recommend her, as she is a ...

So I freely admit that I am one of those crazy shiba inu owners that never takes vacations because I am aware my dogs can be challenging! A trip to Hawaii came up and with no one I trusted to watch James and Miles, I decided to look to Rover for some assistance. I booked with Erika based on her extensive experience and qualifications, and after returning from Hawaii this morning I am 100% pleased ...

It doesn’t give me any pleasure to write a negative review but, in this instance, I have no choice. We hired Erika to stay with our rescue pup, Lucy, for 8 days while we were in London. We’ve used Rover several times in the past and had wonderful experiences. Not so much this time…. We discovered, about half-way through our trip, that Erika had a full-time job and thus was leaving our house ...

I have handled reactive dogs and special needs dogs of all ages. I like to work on manners and basic commands as well as invent new games ...

What Erika would like to know about your dog

I have no breed or size restrictions. I recommend a meet and greet beforehand but I am also available on short notice if my schedule allows. Instruction sheets are invaluable and go a long way as a reference guide for me when learning about a new client.

When Erika watches your pet

When I meet a client for the first time, it’s important to know what routine the dog is accustomed to. I am able to accommodate all activity levels and customize my service to reduce stress on the pup while you are away. This includes walks, trips to the park, socializing with people and other dogs, etc.
I think it is important to keep clients up-to-date on the wellbeing of their pets, so I always include photo check-ins with details about the stay periodically.
