Hey! I'm Ellie. I'm that person where if you walk by me with any kind of animal you'll hear some sort of uncontrollable noise that comes out of me and will inevitably ask you if I can stroke them haha.
I've been an animal lover since I can remember and grew up with 2 cats in my family, my grandparents springer spaniel and currently have a cat (not currently living with). I also have experience cat, dog and rabbit sitting for friends and neighbours whilst they have been away or on holiday.
At my previous work I regularly met customers with dogs (and the occasional cat, bearded dragon and even snakes!) who often asked us to watch them or be with them outside as they shopped as it makes them feel more comfortable and I would occasionally get a customer who asks me to hold their dog whilst they shop, much to my delight haha! I have made great friendships through meeting customers dogs and they would specifically ask for me when they come in so I can go and say hello!
My services include but are not limited to dog boarding, sitting and walking, cat sitting and looking after small animals and reptiles. Your pet will be in safe hands and will be spoiled with cuddles and play. I am currently not working so very flexible with the times I'm available (morning, afternoon, evening). Because of this I am happy to spend as much time as needed/preferred with them. From 30 minutes to an hour or more if needed for dog walking and home visits and can do up to two or three a day. I understand that alot of dogs are different and need different types of walks and play and will adjust this accordingly.
Regarding my own home, I live in a 2 bed ground floor flat with a patio (can be gated if needed) and a ungated large grass area at the back and a small ungated grass area at the front. Because of this I would say it would be more appropriate for small and medium sized dogs and obviously small animals like cats, bunnies etc. I am not strict on where the pets sleep but will respect your rules if you crate them etc. Due to my availability your pets would not be left alone. I live with my partner and a friend, though it is me and my partner that are mainly in the flat. I live 5 minutes walk from a large open field which is popular for dog walking and I am less than 10 minute walk away from a vets in case of emergencies. If you have any other questions or queries please feel free to ask :)
Ellie looked after Jet and Humbug for us. We were very happy with the twice daily updates and the photos. Both cats took to her and we would definitely book her again. Diana
We used Ellie for a day care service. Her approach was kind and caring. She made an effort to understand Sebby’s likes and dislikes . We received photo updates of his activities during his time at Ellie’s, which was lovely. Sebby was relaxed and happy when we collected him. Thank you Ellie.
