About ellie

I'm a 21-year-old female student who is currently on a gap year from studying fashion design at the University of Brighton. I live with two other people who are master's students so our home is peaceful and welcoming. We are well situated close to the city centre and parks and a short bus/train journey from bigger countryside areas such a Stanmer/the downs/devils dyke which I often frequent. 

I come from Stoke-On-Trent but moved here to study and have fallen in love with the city, I'm vegan and liberal and love most activities and outside fun!

I have had dogs all my life, specifically Staffordshire bull-terriers. Two of which were rescues. I'm comfortable around boisterous dogs with quirks and will respect any rules needed to be adhered to to ensure the comfort and safety of any animal id be lucky enough to look after. I've felt after moving to uni in 2018 that I was deeply missing my dogs. Last year was lucky enough to have my brother living in the same city who also has a dog so during last year I would look after his dog : ) I would love to adopt my own but feel I'm not in a place to fully commit ten plus years of my life yet as I hope to travel etc in the next few years. 

I'm happy to look after all types of dogs and would be ok to meet with you prior to any commitments so we can chat/discuss things and see if we are a good match.

I can offer a fun and relaxing environment where your pets should feel comfortable. I'm available usually in the mornings until late afternoon. I can visit your home if preferred to water plants and look after dogs from there however I would prefer to have pets overnight in my own home if they need looking after for a prolonged period of time. I cannot administer medication that isn't oral/mixed in with dog food.

Ellie was great. Gave us regular updates on Lena whilst we were away for a week and looked after her very well with walks etc. Will definitely use her again.

Ellie took care of our girl Lexi for 9 days whilst we were away. She was so attentive and clearly loves animals. Lexi is a rescue and certainly has her qwerks but Ellie took it all in her stride and updated us daily. Thank you so much and highly recommend! Xx

Familiar with dog training techniques
I can offer a home where your animals will get lost of attention and the required rest time needed. I can provide each animal with more catered care depending on the requirements of the pet. On average a dog walk would be a few hours if I was looking after I would make an effort to go to stammer or the downs. I would not be able to administer medication or offer any professional training or grooming but would be able to shower them if they got muddy from a walk. I would take up to 2 dogs for boarding, no more as to not overwhelm myself. I can offer one long walk and one smaller walk per day. I have a flexible schedule at the moment and mostly work evenings currently, therefore I am happy to take on dogs for days or even overnights on my days off from work. I would love overnight stays as I love evening cuddles with pooches! I am also happy to take them out with me if I'm meeting a friend for lunch etc... All my friends are animal lovers and are already a sitter here. I usually have two days off completely free from work a week and these change per week due to my job in hospitality. I would supervise any pets 24/7 for daycare and overnight stays would ensure only to pop out for important errands. As it's a basement flat my bedroom looks straight through the kitchen and into the garden so they can play there whilst I am also able to watch them. The guest pets can sleep on my sofa, bed, or on the floor of my room if they so wish. The garden is fenced and secure.
