I highly recommend Ellen as a dog caregiver. I have known her for many years. She is a highly responsible individual and a great animal lover. She has cared for my own pets and I am always confident that they will be fed, walked, played with and loved in her care. I completely trust her and she has even taken care of my Grandchild, house and plants in my absence. You will be very fortunate ...

Verified Stay

Ellen was excellent ! She (and her son) took care of our 13 year old sheltie (Squiggles) over a 3 day weekend for the first time. She immediately made our timid dog feel at-ease and kept us up-to-date both before and during the stay. Ellen is a terrific person to work with, and Squiggles seemed very relaxed staying with her.
