I have a 13 year old diabetic dog who is insulin dependent. I felt very comfortable that Elaine was a retired RN and completely confident and capable of giving insulin shots and checking blood glucose levels. Elaine went above and beyond making sure my dog ate, even cooking eggs, turkey meat and hamburger meat to get the job done. She emailed pictures and I received daily updates on her levels etc. I would absolutely without a doubt use Elaine to watch my dog whenever I go away. She is the sweetest lady and truly loves all her guests.
Elaine did a great job taking care of my two dogs. My Airedale is a sweetheart and very easy to handle but my 12 year old Beagle is a little more difficult. He's not always friendly with strangers and is very possessive over his space. Elaine created a comfortable environment for him and I felt good knowing he was well taken care of. Always nice to get pictures as well!
My frenchie boy stayed with Elaine during the holiday season. Again, I am very happy to see him happy and healthy.
We are very happy with the care that Elaine & Linda gave a dog, Katie! Katie came home without any notice of stress - at 14 years old that's always a possibility. We will definitely be using them again! Thank you Elaine & Linda!
Mikey has stayed with Elaine 2 times. He enjoyed his stay and I felt very comfortable leaving him. Every day I got an update on him and a picture. She treated him like her own. Thank you. I will continue to use Elaine whenever we go away.
Elaine was magnificent! She sent me pictures of our dog Hershey when we were away and kept me updated on how much fun he was having with a few of the other dogs. When we returned, Elaine was super organized and had all of his stuff together, and Hershey seemed very happy. We will definitely be using her again!
Our dog Morgan had a great stay with Elaine. She was flexible about drop-off and pick-up times and she posted a nice picture of him for us to see.
My dogs had an amazing time...we would definitely be coming back!
Very great experience with Elaine. My Frenchie Piggy stayed with them for three weeks. When I picked him up, he was happy and healthy. I would give Elaine a call anytime if I should need another boarding service.
Thanks for taking care of my pup for 9 days! The pictures you sent me eased my separation anxiety!
Also, it was a very nice service that you came to my home to pick him up; and your offer to drive him home, too!
I will be calling you when I take my next business trip or vacation, so I can go knowing my dog is well cared for.
Thanks again
Elaine took such a great care of our 3 girls for 10 days. I highly recommend her services. Thank your Elaine for making sure my girls were happy and safe while we were away.
My dog returned happy and healthy. It appeared that he was treated well from the pix I received. I would not hesitate to leave home there again.
My dog had just an overnight stay. She seemed happy when I picked her up and was playing. She ate well and wasn't as stressed as I was expecting. I would definitely use Elaine in the future.
Elaine was wonderful, very caring and approachable. Our Rosie came home happy as a clam. So glad we found you!
Our 5 yr old pit bull Georgie stayed with Elaine during our 12 day family vacation abroad. Not only is Georgie very attached to us but we were very nervous about leaving her for such an extended time. We knew we were going to miss her as much as she would miss us. Elaine and Linda set us at ease and were very reassuring. Their dog expertise and knowledge was apparent. We were able to leave knowing our girl was in caring hands. The email updates and photos while we were away was comforting. When we picked Georgie up she was happy and unstressed from the separation. We would highly recommend Elaine and Linda as your pet hosts.
This was the first time I ever tried Doggy Day Care and it turned out great! Elaine kept me updated with pictures and food feedback, and Dante came home exhausted =) Will definitely use her again!
They were great. Dogs came home happy and exhausted!!
Elaine took great care of my puppies. They seemed very happy with her. I would definitely use her again.
Blaze, my English Springer Spaniel, had a terrific two-week long stay with Elaine. Elaine kept me updated with photos and messages and I could tell that Blaze was well taken care of. We will definitely use Elaine again!
I've never left my two dogs with anyone before, so I was a bit apprehensive about this whole thing as I was about to elope with my fiancée to Maine for a few days.Elaine and Linda were so wonderful that I won't hesitate ever again . The dogs came home perfectly happy. The fact that they were picked up from us, delivered home again, and that we received a few pictures over the course of the 5 days made the whole experience even better. Thank you so much!
All went great. Made our vacation that much more enjoyable knowing Marco was being well cared for
Elaine and Linda were great hosts to my weimaraner. They were clearly experienced dog people and were very flexible and understanding on pickup/dropoff time. My weim enjoyed being with Maya , Elaine's young chow, and he was clearly well cared for. Furthermore, Elaine sent frequent photos of him outside in the backyard.
We immediately felt comfortable leaving our large, energetic puppy with Elaine and Linda! Getting pictures of Kaan happily playing outside while he was there was wonderful-it was great to know that he was in such good hands. We would not hesitate to leave Kaan with Elaine and Linda again. Thank you so much!
I immediately felt safe leaving my dog with Elaine. Home was clean and well maintained. The family members were friendly and obviously love dogs. Bentley had a great time. Would definitely use again.
We had a great experience with Elaine and Linda watching our dogs. Very reasonable price and they were flexible on the drop off and pick up time which was very convenient. Our dogs seemed to be happy and healthy which is all you can ask for. Next vacation we'll definitely be taking them back, wouldn't even consider using anyone else.
Our animals loved their stay at Elaine's! We have two dogs and a cat, and they were all able to stay for a week while we went to MS. Elaine was easy to communicate with, and was concerned for all the animal's needs. Elaine was also flexible with our check in and out which made it way easier dealing with all the hassles of flying/rental cars/etc. I would definitely recommend having your pets stay with Elaine. She even sends daily pictures and updates! Such a great experience!
My dogs Buddy and Brixton stayed at Elaine's for a week, and I was very happy and relieved. They were in good hands, as I met Elaine, her mom, and their 8 y.o. Chow. I got photos of my pups having a grand old time playing with toys and outside in their large backyard. I also love that my dogs were never left unattended in a big house, and that there were puppy/safety gates galore. During our initial meet and greet all questions were answered, and Elaine has a lot of dog sitting experience. My big mush Buddy fell asleep under the kitchen table as we talked, a great sign of how comfy he felt at Elaine's. Also, they asked if it was ok that my dogs got some chicken mixed in their food as a treat, and what doggie doesn't love chicken? I always gauge my dogs' experiences with sitters when I pick them up. If Brixton's ears are back when he climbs into my Jeep and acts nervous, like he's pacing, I feel awful because I know something wasn't right and I never use that sitter again. This time Brixton's ears were forward, he was happy to sit in the car and he was alert like he was ready for another adventure! I was so happy, because my dogs were happy, and now I found a great host and plan to use Elaine's services for my next trip and even for doggy daycare!
As this was the first time that it has been necessary to find a sitter for my puppy "Lobo", I searched through the internet looking for someone local who would be keeping my boy in a home environment, I had rescued him after about 6 months in a cage and I did not want to see him back in that type of environment. I came across Elaine's profile and she sounded perfect, and she was! She handled my extremely energetic 105 pound puppy with ease, promptly responding to messages and allowing me to conduct by business trip without worry. Thank you Elaine!
Elaine and Linda took very good care of our wonderful dog while we were away for a week and always sent updates via e-mail. They also sent pictures which are so very nice to have. Thank you so very much for taking good care of our pup.
Misty and Tiffany were cared for like royalty. Elaine and Linda treated my girls like they were their own, and gave me good suggestions for feeding them, since they can be fussy eaters. They also kept us updated on how they were doing, and sent us pictures as well. They will come and visit them again in the future.
They were absolutely wonderful with Milou and it was such a relief knowing he was being well taken care of! He will be staying there again soon and we could not be happier!!! Thank you so much!!!
Our pups had a great time! They were well cared for and we even received photo updates while we were away.
Elaine was great with my dog. Cali was well cared for, happy and I even received photos of her while we were away. They were so kind an accommodating for our schedule. I liked that someone is always home with the dogs and it is not a kennel, but the dogs are cared for in their home. She even mixed chicken in with my dog's food (my dog is a picky eater) to encourage her to eat. I will definitely use them again and recommend them to my family.
