Hello, My name is Erin and I live in Chelsea, West London. I am a US and UK citizen having lived in London now for close to 20 years. I grew up in a family that always included a large dog or a cat but I also have plenty of experience with small dogs as I have an 11 year old Pomeranian (love of my life). Unfortunately he is currently residing in Washington, DC with family, due to his health and travel restrictions back and forth from the UK. I am waiting until I can bring him back home but in the meantime, I was thinking it would be nice to dog sit for other parents of four-legged fur babies that have had just as hard of a time as I did finding someone to trust my little one with. Also, I understand well the heartbreak of leaving them alone, even for a little while, which is why sitting and boarding are both options. I live in a dog-friendly building with 3 beautiful Chihuahua neighbors, just downstairs. I work from home with a flexible schedule, so it is easy for me to dog sit for a couple hours or even a couple days, depending on availability and I will not pop out for more than 2-3 hours, if at all and only during a usual nap time. Whenever possible and safety permitting, I would usually bring your pet along with me as I am well-equipped and used to that with my own dog. I am very happy to go on regular long or shorter walks appropriate to your dogs age and activity level. I live in a third floor walk-up with no lift but I am happy to carry smaller dogs up and down if mobility with stairs is an issue. There are several dog friendly spots nearby for longer walks. I have a nice cozy dog bed a well as water and food bowls if you can please supply proper food and medicine for any dietary requirements. I know how important it is to stick to a regular routine. Having a pomeranian I know certain breeds require a lot of maintenance so I am prepared to do daily brushing, cuddles and belly rubs:) I would prefer full vaccination and potty training. Although I love all dogs, small breed dogs would be a better fit for my current situation. My flat is very clean and cozy with plenty of space to wander and make themselves at home, no area is off limits, even my bed, depending on what your pet is used to. Food will be provided at times consistant with the owner's instructions and of course fresh water at all times. I am available for boarding within Zone 1 and 2, depending on the requirement. If the pet is to be boarded overnight, do keep in mind that collection and drop off times will affect the cost of the boarding. Photos will be sent to provide comfort and confidence that your pet is in good hands. Please feel free to contact me directly with any further questions related to accomodation and services.
We were lucky, Erin is a truly remarkable sitter. She regularly sent pictures and updates and even checked in to see if we were having fun on our family holiday. I'm sure if Kush could talk he would say exactly the same thing. We would definitely use Erin sitter services when we next travel again.
