Ellen took care of Argos like he was one of her own dogs. She sent lots of pictures and he came home happy, healthy, and relaxed!

Ellen is great with our puppy Bailey, keeps us updated on his day with pictures, and sends him home good and tired.

About Ellen

  • Verified Background Check

I love dogs! It's always Yappy Hour

I have a spacious home and backyard with outdoor access all day! I send pictures and sometimes videos every single day! My sweet little dogs, Charlie and Bernie Sanders, love to play and would welcome new friends. I have been a dog owner all my life. I am a retired special ed teacher and a responsible, caring person.I find that the behavioral approaches that I used in my teaching career also work with dogs ...

What Ellen would like to know about your dog

It's important to know of the dog's habits and fears (if any), as well as eating patterns, attitudes toward other dogs, any food aggression or leash aggression issues. It's crucial to know if your pooch has any special needs.....physically or behaviorally. I always feed my guests separately to avoid any food issues. Also I would need to know if the dog can manage being left alone for short periods and how he/she can manage in the car.

Due to extra effort/work for larger dogs, my rates increase to $60 for puppies and dogs 40 lbs. +
