"I highly recommend Ellen if you’re looking for loving, responsible, trustworthy pet sitter!

I hired Ellen for 3 weeks to pet sit my potbelly pig Gordy while my husband and I went on our honeymoon.

This was the first time we left for a long period of time and Ellen took all my worries away! I could tell he was so loved and cared for while we were away. I got daily updates and photos and my heart was so happy knowing he was in great hands.

Gordy and I are super thankful for Ellen. She’s the sweetest person and you can tell she is a huge animal lover! Thank you so much again Ellen"

~ Jenna, owner of Gordy, the 12-year-old pot-bellied pig

"Thanks again, Ellen.  You allow us to go away as a family and not worry about our babies and know they are being extremely well taken care of."

~ Melanie, owner of Avery, Zenny, Jordi (dogs), Edward, Harry, and Sophie (cats)

"Ellen cared for our 3 doodles in our home while our family went on vacation to NYC. She gave us daily updates and made sure we knew they were being well cared for. We came home to happy doggies and a sparkling clean house as an added bonus. We truly appreciated her wonderful services and won’t hesitate to contact her again when our doggies need care."

"You are amazing Ellen.... the animals were so well looked after... and the house and barn were spotless...the dogs still miss you and Toby.... "

"I was referred to Ellen by a friend who had used her services and told she was amazing…. Well she did not disappoint!! Ellen stayed in my home with my 4 dogs (1 of which was super shy and took 5 days just to trust her enough and go near her). She updated me daily on the pups and sent pictures. This reassured me that the dogs were ok and most importantly - in good hands. I can not say enough… how pleased I am with her services and highly recommend her. We will be using her next time we travel. Thank you Ellen!"

"When I lost the services of two teenage girls that look after my dogs/cat for many years Ellen was recommended to me by a mutual contact.  I have to tell you that she is just amazing and I would highly highly recommend her for any animal daycare/furbabysitting.  I had no worries the whole time away.  We kept in close contact with updates and I felt she gave the utmost care and attention to my dogs/cat.  I will definitely use this service again.  There is no hesitation in recommending Ellen - she is the best!"

I am totally confident in her abilities to look after my precious dogs while on vacation. It is so refreshing to see someone so conscientious and knowledgeable regarding dogs.
