Great dog sitter. Ellen stayed in my house, and took great care of it, and my dog. She sent a picture of the dog as well.

Ellen was absolutely amazing!! She was great with our dog and we felt comfortable with her right away. She took our little one on multiple walks a day (even on runs!) and had no problems following the schedule we left. We will definitely use Ellen again in the future!! Thank you!!!

When Ellen watches your pet

I love hiking and going to the beach, so if your dog enjoys that, I would like to take them along! Going for a run around the neighborhood is also a good time. I have also trained dogs in agility so I can do that with your dog if you like. I am also willing and able to practice obedience training.
