About Erin
I know how hard it is to be away from your fur babies, and the worry that brings...
We have had to use pet sitting services in the past, and we have high expectations for our beautiful fur babies. This is the same exceptional standard that I offer to you and your pets. You may have met me - I'm the one who is always saying "excuse me can I please pat your dog/cat/rabbit/horse?"
Animals bring us such joy, and to be able to cuddle, pat, play with, walk and nurture your furbaby while you're away will give me such pleasure, and you peace of mind, knowing they are being well cared for.
As many of our pets have their own quirks or special needs, flexibility is important, so if your pet has special requirements, I am most happy to oblige. I understand that it can be stressful being away from your pets, and I will give them the attention they need so that you can enjoy your break, knowing they are being well loved.
We are a family of dedicated animal lovers and work hard to promote responsible pet ownership. We have two beautiful rescue Schnoodles Leni and Mac (Lennon and McCartney) and Mabel the Cat. They are the loves of our lives. Leni and Mac had a rough start to life, but nowadays they prefer the comfort of our bed. When we remind them of their humble farm beginnings, they deny it. They believe they've always been cherished. That gives me hope that with love and patience, any animal who has had a rough time in life may one day only remember the good, that the bad memories will fade away...
We make most of their food from scratch, and bake their dog treats and vet-approved icecream. They sleep on the bed, they love to help us in the garden and Mac loves to go for a swim at the beach with me. Leni prefers to keep his feet dry, but loves a run on the beach. Both Leni and Mac are very well trained. This took lots of work, as we brought them home at aged 6 months, after having spent their puppyhood at a puppy mill. They had had very little human contact, did not even have names, and had never been inside a house or car. We have spent so much time just loving them and teaching them, and the hard work has been worth it. Mabel the Cat rules the house ... the puppies adore her, but she calls the shots.
I can provide home visits for your furbaby, and can visit several times a day if needed. While I prefer the home visits, if you think your pet would be better with us at our home, I would certainly consider it. Leni and Mac adore other dogs (even grumpy ones) and we have a fantastic, large, puppy proof back garden. All animals in our care sleep inside at night.
I can provide testimonies from people who have used my services.
I can also collect mail and water gardens.
I can provide a police check and character references.

Absolutely brilliant! Erin and Nick are simply amazing, we had constant updates and photographs while we were away, it made us feel so comfortable and relaxed knowing how well they were being loved and looked after. I highly recommend them

Erin and her family welcomed our dogs into her home as part of her family. She spent time at the meet and greet to get to know them both and let them get to know her dogs, to ensure they all got along. I was worries about finding a sitter as we had a 15 week old puppy who was still learning manners and toileting. I felt confident leaving our dogs with Erin as it was clear she is a real dog lover and would spend plenty of time with our fur babies and also continue training the puppy. No hesitation in recommending Erin. We will definitely use her again. It’s clear our dogs had a lovely holiday with Erin and her family.

Erin is an amazing pet sitter. We have used her regularly over the past two years whenever we are away. Our standard groodle absolutely adores staying at Erin's house because he gets spoilt rotten. He is always excited when we pull up at her house. Her two dogs are sweet and friendly, even though they are much smaller than our dog. Erin has a large back yard with plenty of shade and lots of grass to romp around on. I can't recommend her enough!

Erin helped me in choosing my dog Mischa 7 years ago. At her suggestion, Mischa first met her dogs as part of his puppy socialisation. I was struck by the rapport that Erin had with the dogs and Mischa thoroughly enjoyed these early play dates and was always ready to rush to the door when Erin came to pick him up. He learned how a different household operated and what was expected of him. Erin has supported me with care of Mischa and has had him for both short weekend stays and extended visits when I travel overseas. Mischa greets Erin with happy anticipation. No dog could have been better cared for, looked after, given such affection and , yes, love than Mischa. He had the chance to experience things – such as going to the beach, being taken on interesting walks, to be rubbed down, and then able to snooze in front of an open fire. Experiences that were not available at home with me. At the same time, he was not spoilt . Well not very much! Erin was in control, and handles her dogs intelligently and very knowledgably, taking individual characteristics and temperaments into account. I have no hesitation in recommending Erin as a dog sitter. I have not met anyone who has knowledge nor the rapport/contact with animals, empathy for them when in strange situations or simply upset/missing their owners as does Erin.
