This was Elissa's first time sitting for my two pooches, Bella and Bishop. She did an excellent job, spending time with them, sending me pictures and communicating. I plan on using her for future jobs. Highly recommend!

Elissa is a caring person with extensive experience in animal care including special training in horse care and experience in working in a kennel dealing with all types of dogs. I would fully trust her with all 11 of my horses and with my dog. She is honest and trustworthy - I would trust her to sit with my house as well. You cant go wrong with Elissa.

I highly recommend Elissa as your dog, cat and house-sitter! She is responsible, trustworthy, and she is a loving care-taker of all animals, large or small. She grew up surrounded by horses, dogs, cats, and many other living creatures, and she is studying to become a Vet. I trust her with my beloved pets, and they are always happy to see her!

What Elissa would like to know about your dog

I would like to know the age of your pet, personality with other pets, personality on a leash, any habits to watch out for (good/bad), and any previous medical conditions. Also if treats are acceptable, any known food aggression.

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
Senior Dog Experience
Can provide daily exercise
Injected Medication Administration
Special Needs Dog Experience

I love to be outside and getting exercise so if yo have a hyper dog that enjoys a run or feel your dog needs a workout, 10-20 minute jogs on the leash after bathroom breaks are available.
