Ellen is a wonderful dog sitter. She took great care of my Westie last weekend. She sent me photos of him throughout the day, gave him loving care and he had a blast hanging with the other dogs. He was safe and sound when I returned, if not wiped out from all the fun he had. I recommend Ellen 100%

Ellen is the best dog caregiver I have had for my two pugs. Boogie and Bina come home happy and healthy everytime they spend time with her. The dogs that they have are gentle and are all about play time. My wife and I joke around saying that her lovely home is like Disney Land for our dogs. You will no regret putting your pups into her caring hands

I believe in communicating with your dog on their level. I consider them to be my dear personal friends.

What Ellen would like to know about your dog

I would like to know that the dog is not aggressive toward other dogs, that would be a deal breaker. I chose small dogs mostly because I did not want a larger dog to bully my very sweet doberman. Im sorry we cant accept large breed dogs who will grow up to be over forty pounds.

When Ellen watches your pet

We will play fetch, take many trips down to the fenced in barn area, chase squirrels, watch the birds, explore all the fun things to look at and smell in the paddocks. We dont have horses anymore so the dogs have the run of the place!
