About Ellie

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Ellie and I am a recent graduate of Portland State University and I live in a house downtown. I worked part-time at a doggy daycare for over a year and was raised in a large family that always had several animals of various types. I have been dog sitting in the Portland area for about 4 years. I love playing and spending time outdoors! My home is conveniently located in downtown Portland and I can bike to locations nearby.

Why I love dog sitting:
I have always had dogs in my life and as a part of my family. I began pet walking as a kid and then dog sitting in early college. At the beginning of my 4th year of college I was hired at a doggy daycare and boarding facility and I still work both there and caring for dogs in my own home.

My experience administering medication:
I have no problems administering medications. I will usually consult the owner to see what tricks they may use (if any) to help the dog consume their medications as easily as possible. I have experience with using pill pockets, peanut butter or nothing at all while administering medications.

Limitations:
I work full time Thursday-Monday so I am only able to do midday walks on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and if I pet sit over a weekend, I will need to go to work. That said, in that case I will always walk the dogs right before work and again as soon as I am done with my job.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have regarding my experience.

Oct 2016
I first met Ellie when she worked at a doggy daycare. I was impressed by her love and compassion for dogs and soon hired her to watch my dog and cat when I traveled.

Ellie is extremely dependable and conscientious. She follows instructions to a tee and has excellent common sense. I especially appreciate the frequent communication when she dog:/cat/house sits. She sends quick updates and pictures which I love. Most of all, my pets adore her!
