Unfortunately, no one was home to receive us when it was time to drop off my dog and she didn't answer her phone. I had to find another sitter last minute, which made me late for my holiday weekend plans. I'm still not sure what happened.

Ellen was great! She watched my dog for a week and a half. He had a minor medical issue right before leaving, and Ellen kept an eye on him and kept me posted. I wouldn't hesitate to use her again in the future!

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.

When Ellen watches your pet

I know many dog friendly places! As I mentioned I also enjoy being outdoors and being active. So if your pup is active we can go running on the Schuylkill trail, walk around the city, or venture around Penn's Landing. I am familiar with Philadelphia very much. There is so much to see and do! There are also wonderful areas very close to were I live such as a dog park, south street, Passyunk, the Italian Market... etc. I also am quite good at relaxing if your dog is low energy. We can lounge around, maybe sit outside while at a close by coffee or food place. There are so many things to do. Just as long as your dog is happy :)
