Rosie really liked her time with Ellen. She was in high spirits when I came home, and didn't seem to miss me at all. Ellen was very responsive and was great about sending photos of Rosie when they were on their walks. She was also great about reaching out with questions, and was very cognizant of taking care of Rosie through the heat. I'm super grateful to have had someone I could trust back home ...

Ellen is a great dog walker! We had a meet-n-greet beforehand and we could tell that she was trustworthy and dependable, and had a sincere interest in getting to know our dog. Each day we received timely messages and pictures of their midday walk. We plan to work with Ellen going forward and highly recommend!

Caretaker and Lover of animals!!

Hello, my name is Ellen. I have am a very patient and caring person. I am a lover of animals, especially dogs. My experience with caring for dogs began as a child who always grew up in a household of pets, including my first Pet Quisha a shepherd mix. From there on having a few other pups along the way. When I was in middle school I began pet sitting and dog walking for neighbors ...

What Ellen would like to know about your dog

I love all different dogs. I've had many different types effect my heart. All different types! Getting to know their personalities and spending time with them. That's fun for me. So I do not have any breed preference. However, I must say I did grow up with mainly Shepherd breed mixes and one Great Dane. So there is always something nostalgic there for me.

Before meeting a dog to spend time with I would just like to know about them...

What their triggers are, what they like to do. What makes them happy, what makes them mad. Any health issues, any history about there life that would help me insure their well being and happiness. I want to know all of the important thoughts the owner has for me. Anything that is important is worth being told. Other than that, I am an understanding individual. So the rest I will take my time and figure out. I do really enjoy meeting the owners before meeting a dog too.
