Ellen was very professional from the day we had an initial meeting to introduce Lola.

Ellen absolutely loves dogs and will love and take care of your dog like it was her own. She is extremely patient and understanding of dogs' various behaviors and personalities. She lived with me and my dog, who has behavioral issues, for over a year and my dog could not have loved her more. You will not regret having Ellen watch and take care of your fur baby.

When Ellen watches your pet

I enjoy runs and hikes and would love to take your dog with me if it's something they like doing too. Otherwise I'm happy to get outside for walks, even if it's raining (I used to live in Seattle)!
