Ellen is fantastic. She stayed in our Oakland apartment with our two standard poodles for a week and did a great job. She's responsible and dependable, kept us informed, and the dogs were happy and healthy when we returned. Everything was perfect. Will definitely use her again.

Ellen clearly loves the pups and they clearly love her. She was super responsive and went out of her way to flex when things changed on our end. We’ll be calling on Ellen again whenever Bella needs a pal for a sleepover at our house.

Ellen helped us out when we needed some very last minute dog-sitting help. Really appreciate her flexibility and that she took such good care of our Oreo, who was very excited to see her again.

Cesar Millan has nothing on me!

I've never met a dog I didn't love, and I've never met a dog that didn't love me. I'll take my cues from your pup - if they like long, brisk walks or jogs, that's great! If they'd rather cuddle or play fetch in the yard, that works too! No request is too specific; you know what's best for your dog, and I will make sure that your instructions are carried out to the letter.

What Ellen would like to know about your dog

Any questions can be reviewed during a meet-and-greet or via phone/text!
-What commands does your dog know?
-What is your pup's veterinarian's information?
-What are your dog's exercise preferences and routine?
-Does your dog have separation anxiety or other phobias?
-Does your dog have any problem behaviors such as aggression, chewing things, etc.? (Not a dealbreaker, but owners will be responsible/liable for any damages or expenses.)

When Ellen watches your pet

I’m happy to keep your dog at home, or take them with me on adventures! I love going to the dog park, and one of my recent canine clients even came with me to the world championships of dog surfing to watch and enjoy the pet-friendly vendors.
