Erika is a wonderful pet person! She’s super flexible, responsive, reliable, conscientious, my dog and cat love her. She does the little extras too like filling the water bowls, which I so appreciate. I totally trust her and feel so lucky to have found her for my dog walking and pet care. Knowing that she’ll show up and take excellent care of my pets has given me a lot of flexibility back into my life! I can’t recommend Erika enough!!!

I am thrilled that Erika takes my elderly dog (Chica Bear) for her walks. Erika is prompt and reliable. I love how Erika pays attention to detail. especially as Chica is also blind. I love my dog with all my heart and I am happy to know that she cares for my Chica and takes her time walking her. Thank you Erika

Details: 1 dog • 10 years or older • Medium (26 - 40 lbs) • Small (16 - 25 lbs) • 30 minutes (standard) • Prefer a private walk for my dog(s) alone • My home, venue, etc.

I booked Erika to feed my cats and the whole process went smoothly. She is definitely an animal lover and caught glimpses of my shy girls on two visits (thanks for the videos!). Reasonably priced, responded quickly to my request for booking, and made sure my sweet girls were taken care of. Thank you!

Details: Cat • 2 pets • Giving food and water • Changing litter or bedding • Short visit (30 minutes) • Once a day • My home, venue, etc.

Erika is great! This is the first time we needed a pet sitter for our cat, and after reaching out to Erika, she responded within minutes to the request! Our kitty is very shy and we were nervous to leave her alone for the first time (for over a week) and Erika gave us daily video updates. By the end of our trip, Kiki was excited when Erika would come over to check on her and stopped hiding under the bed. Next time we have to leave town, we will definitely be reaching out to see if Erika is available! If this is the first time you’re looking for a pet sitter, reach out to Erika, your pet will be in good hands!

    Don't settle! Your animal is important so making sure the bond it has with its care giver is just as important. Make sure your animal feels safe and loved.
