Mary Ellen was a excellent sitter, took care of our multiple pets ( special needs dog 4 birds, and 2 turtles. We were kept up to date with pictures and text..She walked Bob our dog several times a day and gave him his meditation as needed. I would use Mary Ellen again to care for my pets.

About Mary Ellen

years of experience
  • Verified Background Check

LOVE,respect animals;never eat them

I listen and observe the dog. I only use positive training techniques. I have a strong belief that dogs teach us our humanity. I have done workshops, training and volunteering at Beat Friends Animal Society in Kanab, Utah for three years in a row. I consider each dog as an individual with his/her own preferences.
I was a high school English teacher for 28 years, so I am patient! I often use reading aloud ...

What Mary Ellen would like to know about your dog

No breed preferences, but I am a small person and I would prefer to stay @60 lbs for the dog's weight. (I weigh 105)
I want to know the dog's likes/dislikes; routines; any special needs. I always want to know what the owner's requirements are to provide a "regular" home environment for the dog. I have no preference about the age of the dog.

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
Special Needs Dog Experience
Senior Dog Experience
Can provide daily exercise

When Mary Ellen watches your pet

I will be at the dog's home, so wherever the owners usually walk the dog. I like to walk and allow the dog to smell everything and dawdle.
I always sing and/or keep a conversation going with the dog.
I have 3 chihuahuas and they love to walk and "talk"!
