My Cavalier King Charles stayed with Ellen for a long week-end and was wildly happy about his visit and playtime with her two big dogs. She is very responsive to communication, sends pictures daily, is flexible regarding drop-off and pick-up and attentive to details and specific needs and requests. Jasper is a high energy young dog and he came home happy and worn out from his fun week-end! We will definitely be back for return ...

Thank you. We had a wonderful time with Jasper, too. Looking forward to hanging out with him again :)

Ellen was great at watching our dog. He was there for a week, and had a great time with Truffle and Toffee.

Ellen (and Toffee & Truffle) took great care of our Mini Aussie, Toby, for 10 days! Ellen sent photos nearly every day, and we could tell that Toby really enjoyed spending time with two other Aussies. Thank you!!

Thank you. We had a lot of fun hanging out with Toby, too :)

Responsible and Dog Loving Couple

My husband and I both grew up with dogs and always consider ourselves the luckiest couple in the world to have toffee & truffle (our Australian Shepherd girls) in our life.

As a Ph.D. student (Ellen) and an architect (Yu), we are very responsible and very meticulous to details. And as a couple with 2 picky Australian Shepherds, we can handle any kinds of doggy requests (They train us well <3)! We also understand ...

When Ellen watches your pet

[Daily Walks]
A donut stroll (about an hour round trip) every morning to Top Pot Doughnuts with toffee & truffle for our daily dose of coffee and sweet (doggy treats for the paws!).
Multiple shorter walks around the quiet neighborhood throughout the day.
If your pet prefers, we can also visit the off-leash area of Magnuson Park for some off-leash socialization.

Inside the house wherever your pet feels comfortable. You can bring a favorite blanket/dog bed/crate if that would make your pet feel more at home.

[Snacks & Treats]
Toffee & Truffle always have a small piece of grain free biscuit after each meal and a daily chew. We'd love to share with your pet the same treats and snacks with your permission. You can also bring a favorite snack/treat.
