About Ellen

50 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
PLEASE NOTE: YOUR DOG MUST BE CAT FRIENDLY.

IF IT HAS BEEN MORE THAN SIX MONTHS SINCE YOUR DOG HAD THEIR BORDETELLA DOSAGE, PLEASE UPDATE. THANKS.

Your host and hostess at Bark Break by the Beach (aka "Jack's Place") will be Jack, the irrepressible Labradoodle whose great joy it is to play with everybody and Magic, the smart and sweet Border Collie, who just wants to play ball .
I live in the Ventura Keys, a waterfront neighborhood, just a short walk to the beach. I have a nice, secure back yard so there is plenty of space for my "guests" to relax after some fun in the sand, perhaps a little doggy massage and an extra cookie.

The neighborhood is very pet friendly, quiet and safe. I am a realtor, work from home so my "guests" are seldom alone. I love our dogs and cats and, I'm sure if asked, they would all agree that life is good. I walk between 5 and 7 miles a day, love the company of a new friend, and delight in watching them play and run on the sand and in the water.

Just a few special requests; your dogs must be cat friendly since I have a very sweet girl named Meeoh and I want her to enjoy my new friends as much as I do. A meet and greet is critical to be certain everybody is comfortable. Love having puppies but would like them to be housebroken. And, one more request; unless your dog is of puppy age, he must be neutered.

I have always loved dogs of all shapes and sizes but little did I know what a joy it would be hosting all of these wonderful creatures. The dogs and their families are all so devoted to each other so it is my goal to send my guests home happy and relaxed. This is their home away from home and when you're on vacay..they are on vacay!! I fall in love with every one of them!!

I look forward to meeting you and your special friend very soon.

Thanks and Best, Jack, Magic, and Ellen.

Ellen was great! Penny is pretty new to the boarding experience, but Ellen really made us feel comfortable on our vacation by sending us pics of Penny on her DogVacay. Would highly recommend!! Thanks Ellen
Ellen was a lovely host and I enjoyed meeting her. She took great care of our dog Rudi and made him feel at home. I hope to send Rudi there again soon.
She has lots of love and our whippet loves staying with her. Can't beat her location for great walking.
