About Ellie

Our aim is to create an enviroment where your dog feels just as comfortable here as they do in their own loving home. Our house is their house.

Myself and my partner recently moved into our first home due to jobs and schedules unfortunately it’s not the time for us to have our own 4 legged Freind! We live in a 3 bedroom detached house which backs on to farmer fields on a quiet road, we have a large garden that's fully enclosed. We have both grown up in houses with multiple dogs, horses and other animals. We have lots of love to give and the perfect house and surround in order to do so! We have dog sat for 10+ years on and off and have grown up in environments with serveral dogs.

my job means when i am in the uk I work from home, this means I am in the house all day meaning where required 24/7 supervision is required, it is available. my job includes a lot of travel hence it not being the right time to have our own 4 legged Friend. When I am working from home which is 80% of the time I am in the house working flexitime this means I have a the flexibility to walk and tend to your pet as required.

myself and my boyfriend walk and run daily, we have lots of love, attention and experience to give. We often would take high energy dogs running if they have the lead manor do so. The farmer fields behind are very secure ideal for those dogs with recall! I do have a lunge line which I am more than happy to use for thoes doggos with less recall and attention span, who still need a good run out! The area also has great pavement walks and quiet routes for mixed terrain and thoes dogs who just need a little tootle. There is also a great doggy paddock just a 5 mins drive away I am happy to optimise where requested.

Schedule and "a dogs day to day" is considered and mirrored where possible, because of this a meet and greet and discussion around " the normal" is required. Personally the change of scene is enough, Because of this the way your dog is treated at home will be reflected here, this includes walk times, dinner times, sleep patterns, where the dog normally sleeps, what access to the house and garden they hold, access to furniture, walk lengths, training, tone and any behaviour coping mechanisms.

Dog sitting seems to be the perfect way of involving dogs in our lives in the down time I have when I am not travelling, allowing the best of both worlds for both parties.

As dog lovers, we know exactly how it feels to choose the right place for your dog to stay, we like to provide a 'home from home' experience (A dog holiday) As this is not a business venture nor way to make a living and we are doing this solely for the love of dogs and to get our dog dose we only take one booking at a time, we have no resident dogs and no children, this means your dog/dogs are the prime focus and only animal/s in our care.

Experience in caring for dogs stems far and wide from puppies to seniors, most breeds, medical conditions and behaviours. A meet and greet is always required, we want to know the fit is right for us aswell as you.

I also have 16 years experience and am BHS qualified in teaching horse riding and horse welfare, I am more than happy to help with equine requirements where needed.

More than happy to answer any additional questions, I am fairly new to the site specifically, due to re locating and had built up my own little clientele where I grew up, because of this I have lots of additional reviews and references I am more than happy to share where required.

Alice, 2024-07-03

Ellie is an absolute star, constantly delivers again and again, I’m so greatful to have found her and trust her profusely with all our animals. I was recently left in quite the predicament my gorgeous boy had to have emergency surgery after an incident with barbed wire and was recovering. Unfortunately we found our self in a family emergency meaning I had to travel leaving Oscar. Oscar is a very strong, excitable, anxious Doberman who doesn’t do recovering and taking it easy well. Medication, bathing wounds, taking samples, letting him out, but keeping him calm and not pulling on his lead/ or running or jumping is quite the challenge, something we have been struggling with ourselves. Ellie came, gently walked and let Oscar out, staying with him for the day, her calm and tranquil nature meant Oscar was well behaved and slow, her expertise and experience of dogs lead Ellie to find and share a better way of bathing Oscar and is a method we have adopted and is working moving forward. She really is a gem, Oscar is always super excited and happy to see her, they have bonded so well.

Ellie also supported with the horses whilst I was away, turning out, feeding and even riding our youngest. Such an amazing personality we are so greatfull to have met and have her round the corner. Thank you again for everything. Alice, George and your number one fan oscar.
