About Ellie

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm a stay-at- home mom, originally from Brazil, who loves dogs.I am looking to take care of your pet in my comfortable, cozy home while you are away on vacation, weekends and holidays. I have experience with owning and taking care of dogs. I have a 10 year old blue heeler/springer spaniel mix who loves meeting other dogs. I have done plenty of dog sitting for my friends in the past and would love to take care of yours while you are away. Let me know if you have any questions. I'm NOT hosting dogs OVER 55 LBS ANYMORE. :( Thanks

This was the fourth time we had Ellie care for Sophie, and this time it was for a month while we were overseas. As always we were pleased with the care she received and the communication and photos we were sent. I highly recommend Eliane for anyone wanting a safe and happy place for their dog.
Ellie has been great with our dog. We are definitely repeat customers!
Ellie has an excellent setup in her fully enclosed backyard. Our Welch Terrier spent most of her time outside and the Lakeland made himself right at home exploring her house. Very happy and pleased with her facilities and if we ever back in the area again, we will use her.
Eliane seems to have a calming effect on our somewhat skittish rescue Tibetan Terrier. He has had two two-week stays with her and comes back home well behaved with any easy transition to our routine. Highly recommend!
Another great stay with Ellie. She sent photos and notes every day so that we could see that Soophie was doing well. Thank you!
My boy Sammy had a great time. Ellie even let him sleep in their bed. A very special treat! She sent pictures daily and he had a walk every day. We will definitely go back.
Our Sophie is a shy girl and used to being with us most of the time so we wanted to find a place where she would be in a relaxed home environment. We were very happy to find Ellie and her family to care for our girl. Ellie sent photos and updates while we were gone, which was so reassuring to us. We will certainly be back!
My dog had a great time!
Our dog Noche loved his stay with Ellie! We're always nervous to leave him, but he was excited to arrive and almost didn't leave (after excitedly greeting us, he turned around and went back into her house). I also appreciated her flexibility because our airline flights arrived late. We'd definitely take Noche back.
Eliane was great. Our greyhound enjoyed her stay so much she didn't appear to want to leave when we picked her up. She has watched Rosie a couple times and we couldn't be happier with how well she was cared for.
I'm so grateful to find someone who I can feel totally comfortable to leave my precious pup, Koda, with!! Eliane is great and so is her cute little son. Koda always seems to be comfortable going right in to their home and happy after spending time with them. I'm a repeat client!
We didn't have to worry about Rufus..he was in great hands! He's comfortable at Eliane's and becomes part of the family. Such a relief. I love that she keeps us posted with pics and emails. Thanks so much!
Addy isn't always the most social dog, but she had no hesitation walking inside and making herself at home with Eliane and family, and when it was time to pick her up, she was reluctant to leave. Thanks Eliane!
My dog had a great time. Eliane has a great place to host.
Eliane was a wonderful pet sitter for our two doggies. They were well taken care of.
We were so relieved to find Elaine to take care of Rufus while we vacationed for 10 days. She helped him get past his insecurities after a couple of days and must have given him lots of love cuz he was relaxed and part of the family when we returned. She also sent us a text letting us know he was being a good boy and that they liked our guy! Meant a lot! Loved the darling picture of her little girl walking Rufus ( : I think Rufus was comfortable cuz Elaine was relaxed. Would certainly take him next time and recommend her. Thank you!!
Eliane was great - I got lost finding my way there but she was very patient. Chloe really liked her right off the bat and I could tell she was very happy during her stay. Eliane was also good about sending me pictures of Chloe! We will definitely use her again in the future and highly recommend her!
Eliane, her home, her dog and her care are all wonderful. Annie had a great time, and will be back for more. Everything we want in a dog loving dog sitter: attentive, caring and playful. Annie came home happy, tired and wanting more. Thank you Eliane, we loved Annie's DogVacay with you!
This is Eggs' second stay with Eliane. She is GREAT. He clearly had a fun time in Eliane's home with her little boy Lucas, her dog and husband. Eggs is a very hairy rough coated collie, and he came home well groomed and happy. Given his previous stays with other folks, the grooming was impressive. I highly recommend Eliane, without hesitation or reservation, to anyone looking for doggie care in a warmly welcoming home in the greater Santa Rosa area. RDF
Elaine was very nice and very accommodating given the short notice I made to her. Her home is very dog friendly and close to a park. I would, and will, bring my dog to her again.
Kind and attentive, Eliane was ready when we dropped off Eggs, and ready when we picked him up. No fooling around, no confusions. We're happy and will use her again.
Fantastic experience. She kept me updated and my dog, Gizmo, seemed very happy and content when I picked him up after 3 days. I highly recommend Eliane and will be using her again for my dog sitting needs. Thank you, again.
Thanks again for the nice dog sitting. We guess Zari enjoyed the time at your place. It was also great that you had been available on that short notice. We also liked that you had sent pictures of her while sitting. Definitely we will bring her again and we can strongly recommend you.
Best regards
Carsten and Maria
Ellie was great! She was flexible with drop-off and pick-up times, and was fast at responding to all my questions. Athena had a great time there, and when I went to pick her up she was running around having a great time with Ashley, the resident dog :) I definitely will have Athena stay with Ellie anytime I need a dog-sitter!
Eliane took very good care of my dog who has had separation anxiety. I was very happy with the outdoor space and home environment, and Eliane was very accommodating. I felt very confident that my dog would be safe and well cared for and that is just what happened.
Our experience with Elaine great! Elaine provided exceptional care for our Maggie which has extreme separation anxiety. This was the first time we had boarded Maggie and didn't know of her problem and therefore we weren't able to warn or advise Elaine on how to deal with her. Eliane was able to resolve the situation and provide a safe secure environment for her. Eliane was responsive and pleasant throughout this experience. During our meet-n-greet we could see that other dogs she was watching were completely happy, relaxed, and felt at home.
Elaine took care of our dog this past weekend and I can't say enough about what a wonderful job she did. First off, it was sort of last minute, and she was readily available. This was our first time ever having to use a dog sitter (always had used my parents) and so I was definitely nervous! When meeting and seeing Elaine's wonderful house, dog, and family (not to mention a beautiful fenced in backyard) my nerves were put at ease. We picked him up on Sunday and he was just smiling and exhausted from getting so much play time. We could just tell he had a blast and she even let him sleep on the bed (he loves to burrow in the blankets at night - typical dachshund). We will definitely use her every time we need a dog sitter and highly recommend her!
I would recommend Eliane as she was very friendly and responsive. Lily got to play with other dogs at nice spacious backyard.
Our dogs are happy to visit Eliane's house & we feel very secure with them in her wonderful home!
She is an awesome dog sitter. It was a last minute plan and she came through with it fast. Im so thankful that Elaine had the time to watch my Lo'le.Lo'le enjoys her play time with Ashley ;)That's how awesome Elaine is.Thanks again!
Once again, a wonderful experience! Our dogs come home happy & tired! Thank you!
Super flexible & accommodating, I felt very secure with my two doggies in Eliane's care! Highly recommended.
