About Eleanor

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We have been boarding dogs through since August, 2012. We have a large, fenced yard and a quiet neighborhood to walk dogs. We have two college aged sons that love dogs and help us take care of the animals we welcome into our home. We also have a Great Dane that loves company!

We take daily walks around the neighborhood. Our street is a circle with very little outside traffic, so not a lot of cars on the road. It is exactly a half a mile around the circle and we usually walk the circle twice or go for a little longer walk outside the neighborhood. Tank loves to prance around the neighborhood and say hello to anyone he meets, including dogs. He plays with the neighbor's lab mix and huskie. He also loves to run figure eights in our back yard, don't know why, but he gallops through the yard at top speed when he gets excited. It is like watching a thoroughbred horse run!

We get a lot of joy from our dogs and love having guests. We have always had dogs in our home and are used to all breeds and all sizes. We have hosted everything from miniature dachshunds to English mastiffs. We have hosted more than one dog at a time. Tank loves the company.

We would love to meet your dog and have him visit.

A couple of notes: We do not take dogs that have not be neutered. We do not take dogs under one year. Profile say under 2, but that's just because there is no option for under one. We do take dogs that are house trained from the age of one on up.

Our Loki was well cared for by Eleanor and her family. She was very accommodating and conscientious throughout the entire process. We will definitely be back!
milo is always happy going to eleanors which makes me always happy!
My dog Sadie loves to go to Eleanor's home. She prances right in. Eleanor is always responsive if I contact her while I am away. Often I will get pictures of Sadie hanging out or playing. It is as though she is part of the family. The large fenced yard and comfortable home allows Sadie to have fun, get exercise and feel right at home
Very warm loving family, Mack was very happy and enjoyed his vacay!
As first-time users of DogVacay, we are so pleased we chose Eleanor to watch our old boy. She is an experienced sitter and really helped him feel as comfortable as possible, which is not easy because he can be quirky and nervous. From the photos she sent, it looks like he settled in and enjoyed his time there. We'd be happy to have Eleanor watch our dog again.
Our lab loved being here, great yard, loving home. Will definitely stay here again :)
Our dog Chloey had a great and fun time at Peace of Mind with Eleanor and family.

Chloey loved playing in their huge backyard, smelling and playing with the other dogs that came while she was staying there.

It was a wonderful experience and Chloey wants to come again, especially to play with their dog Tank when he feels better!
Ellie does a wonderful job caring for S'mores! S'mores returns home, a happy dog, after staying with Ellie, her family and family dog, Tank. We love knowing that S'mores gets lots of attention and has the comforts of a home. She's stayed there 6 times!
Eleanor was great to work with. She responded very promptly--literally within minutes--to my initial request query and with all communication afterwards. Of all the people we've contacted through Dogvacay, she was the best in getting responses to us on a timely basis. Eleanor also worked with Katie's sometimes fussy eating habits and with her enormous fear of thunderstorms. She was a very responsible as well as responsive host, and we will be requesting her services again.
Milo's always happy there !
Jay Jay and I were both very, very happy with his stay with Eleanor. She is an excellent communicator and got in touch with me about extending his stay even while she was on vacation!
She noticed a place in her gate that she thought might not be secure enough, so she was careful to
"barricade" any possible openings. He didn't come home absolutely worn out, so I know he felt secure enough to rest when he needed to. I certainly would have him stay with Eleanor again when the need arises.
i am always confident milo is loved and well taken care of !
Eleanor was extremely accommodating. My Cavalier King Charles Spaniel seemed to love her stay with Eleanor and her family. I would definitely recommend her for anyone looking for a home away from home stay for their dog.
Eleanor was great with Milo - he came back happy and healthy. Highly recommend her - we'll be back !!
Eleanor has a wonderful place for taking care of dogs. I could not pick up Lilly when I was supposed to and she was very understanding. Lilly needed extra attention and unfortunately was urinating in her house as well. Eleanor was very undertanding about that as well.
I felt completely comfortable leaving our Sunny with Eleanor. He has meds and eats a certain way and Eleanor was very conscientious about this. While we were away she sent us photos and wrote to us about Sunny. I really appreciated this! My husband and I would definitely leave Sunny with Eleanor again. She is a very sweet lady and cares so much about the dog in her care. Thank you Eleanor!!
Bluetooth had a great stay with Eleanor. She loved playing in the back yard and we enjoyed peace of mind knowing Blue was in good hands. We will definitely return. Thank you Eleanor!
We don't get away without the dogs often, but Ellie is always our 1st choice when we do. We feel very comfortable leaving our dogs in her hands (and Tank's paws). Pickles would probably live there if he could! Thanks again!
I always feel completely comfortable bringing my golden retriever to Ellie. I know that he will be well taken care of and give the attention that he needs. I am so thankful to have her nearby to use to board my dog.
Walden had a great experience. Thanks Eleanor!
Eleanor is a great dog mom and she cared for my dog like he was her own. He was happy and healthy after his stay!
Eleanor took such great care of our Havanese for a week. He loves lots of attention and we are thankful to Eleanor and family for giving lots of love and play time and making him feel right at home! Thanks so much!
Happy always has a great time at Eleanor's house! We feel very comforted that Happy is well taken care of while we are not at home. Thanks again Eleanor for once again taking good care of our Happy!
Bailey has enjoyed ... and thrived ... each time she's stayed with the Walsh family. I have perfect confidence in leaving her.
Grover (my dog) always gets loving care with Eleanor and her husband! We wouldn't go to anyone else!
Another wonderful vacation for Macy. Next time, she can go with the family and I'll stay the weekend with Eleanor W. Macy was well looked after and seems to have found Eleanor a suitable substitute for snuggling in my absence. The dog's exhausted right now, after we picked her up. That's always a good sign--means she played hard and long with the other dogs, one of her favorite activities, and had a great time.
Bailey bounded into the Walsh home...eager again to become one of the family!! I'm always completely confident to leave Bailey with the Walsh Family...and Eleanor is a most compassionate,competent dog 'Mother'...
My high energy Port Water Dog was happy as a clam. She had the host's dog for company and full access to an enclosed back yard to come and go outside as she pleased. Host went above and beyond to soothe our dog the first night of her stay and was kind enough to not hold a grudge when our dog helped herself to the owner's steak leftovers. First impressions are that host is kind, calm and has it all under control and impressions are confirmed after our dog's stay.
bailey-my 7-year-old mixed beagle-bounds into the Walsh house,,,once again eager to become part of their dog-loving family! I'm completely confident and at ease leaving her there...and she LOVES her visit!
Drake always comes back pooped! She is one of my go to sitters!
Once again Eleanor and her family over delivered. JB always looks forward to his stay and seeing his buddy, Brian. Eleanor and her family embrace JB as if he is their own.
Eleanor and her family always do such a SUPER job of looking after my picky eater,Grover! They are very careful and creative about encouraging him to eat! I highly recommend Eleanor! Stephanie W.
Chester had a great time--he's still sleeping it off! Eleanor and family were very accommodating and gave us a full report on Chester's stay. You can tell they are true dog people. Thank you for having him!
I cannot thank Eleanor and her family enough. They are so loving and caring- showing JB special love and attention. JB always looks forward to his visits.
As always, Eleanor and her family delivered. JB has a great stay. He came back exhausted from all the play. The bond he has with Brian (Eleanor's husband) is so cute and sweet. Thank you!
This is a second time our Shnoodel Gosha was staying with Eleanor and her family. He loves to be there, and he is part of the family.
He is on the special diet which requires a lot of personal space in the freezer and it wasn't a problem. Gosha looked happy and very well taking care off. It's a great socialization experience for him with a different size and breed dogs. We only wish Eleanor lives closer to us and we can drop him on the way to work. He is definitely more active at her house.
Bailey has boarded with Eleanor and the Walsh family four times....she is a most caring and competent member of the DogVacay program.
Eleanor W was an awesome host. She was kind and loving with our dog, Reilly.
We feel blessed to have found Eleanor and her family! They clearly LOVE dogs, and they give Grover great care! Stephanie W.
As always Sally enjoyed her stay at Eleanor's house! Sally settled right into her favorite chair and had fun playing with the other dogs. Thanks Eleanor!!
Great home for our dog while we are away! Eleanor was great. Our dog had a good time. She is very caring and loving.
Our dog had a great time. He had a great time. Eleanor took great care of Sailor. She is very patient and caring. She was available and returned phone calls when reached. We definitely recommend her. We are glad we found such a caring person to take care or our dog while away.
Another perfect experience boarding Bailey...the Walsh family is so welcoming and caring......
Bruce had a great stay! Wonderful communication and a fantastic host puppy - the yard is a dog's dream. We'll be visiting again in the future.
Another great stay at Eleanor's house for Sally!
I appreciate and value the tender love and care Eleanor and her family showed JB. It was peace of mind knowing JB was so well cared for. JB had an excellent time and is looking forward to his next visit.
Once again, Eleanor gave our dog,Grover, great care! I plan to take him to her house whenever we go out of town ( if she has room for him!).
I always appreciate the Walsh family taking care of Bigi. I know she's being well cared for while I'm away. I HIGHLY recommend the Walsh Inn!
Eleanor took such great care of Trixie for our 10 days away. Not only did Trixie have an absolute blast with the pups, we knew she was in great hands with Eleanor and her family. Trixie needed to take medication at the last minute for the duration of her stay, and Eleanor didn't mind one bit, which put us at ease. We would absolutely recommend Eleanor to anyone needing to board their dog, and will be sure to bring Trixie there for future stays!
Another great stay with Blue's Aunt Eleanor! Eleanor and her family take excellent care of Blue and we use no one else anymore!
Eleanor was terrific with Holly. She clearly loves what she does and is extremely friendly. Holly seemed very happy while playing with the other dogs and got along great with Tank (Eleanor's dog) and the others as well. I would recommend Eleanor and her family any day. Thank you. Chris
Grover's visit with Eleanor W. was excellent! She is a sweet,kind, dog-loving lady, who gave him excellent care! I will definitely ask her to watch him again! Stephanie W.
Eleanor was a great host for our dog! Eleanor was very easy to communicate with when we were scheduling our meet & greet and when we were coordinating drop off and pick up. Eleanor's has a big back yard for the dogs and takes them on daily walks. We really appreciated that she made sure our dog was comfortable with the other dogs. I also really liked that she emailed us the first night our dog was there to let us know how she was doing and sent a few pics as well. I would recommend Eleanor as a dog sitter to anyone!
Our dog's second long stay with Eleanor was just as good as the first. Her dog is great, and she is conscientious about the other dogs she brings in. Our dog came home healthy and happy.
Eleanor was wonderful. Jill was well taken care of. Eleanor kept me updated and sent me pictures. It was easy to contact her and a relief to get her quick response. On the last day, my young dog got into a nest of some sort in the yard and was bitten. She had many mosquito? Bites on her body. Next time, I might look into a repellent for her. She loves to roll in the grass and Eleanor felt terribly about this. I do not blame Eleanor at all and would send Jill there again in the future.
Happy is a Corgi/Collie mix who had only been with us for 3 months when my wife and I had to go to a family wedding in another state. As Happy was newly rescued we really didn't want to put here back into a kennel so we looked on dogvacay for help. Luckily we found Eleanor.

Eleanor is a natural with dogs and even on the initial meet and greet it was only a matter of minutes before Happy was merrily dashing around the large fenced in yard chasing another visiting dog. So a week or so later we went to Tennessee and Happy went to Eleanor. Eleanor looked after Happy well and Happy showed no signs of having been distressed and definitely seems to have appreciated the human company.

Overall a great experience and well definitely consider Eleanor next time we have to go out of town.
Everything about the dog sitting experience with Eleanor was great, from the meet and greet to the drop off and pick up. I received several photos of my two guys playing during their stay, and they appeared happy and well cared for when I arrived to take them home. Eleanor's own Great Dane, Tank, is indeed big but lovable and harmless. Thanks very much, Eleanor!
Warm and friendly home environment with large fenced in yard.
Eleanor is awesome! The dogs had a great time with her and I was very comfortable leaving them with her. I can't wait to book again :)!!
Eleanor was great, sent picture and updates. Wolfi had a good time playing with Tank .
Eleanor was great. She was quick to respond to any questions and was very welcoming to our older dog. She sent us an email and picture the very first day to let us know that everyything was going well. We definitely would leave our dog with Eleanor the next time we travel.
Bailey's second stay with Eleanor and her wonderful family..and Tank,the greatest GreatDane!! Bailey truly became part of the family for 10 days,and tho I missed her I was comforted to know that she was loved and so well taken care of by everyone....highest recommendation for Eleanor and DogVacay!!
Eleanor was very accommodating, we went away for the Thanksgiving and got back later Sat. night, and she had no problem letting us pick our dogs up, and she had company too. I could tell she took good care of our dogs.
I'm so grateful to Eleanor & her family for providing my dog Bailey with a comfortable,safe & loving home for a week while I was far,far away. Her house & large backyard are dog-friendly. Thank you Eleanor..and DogVacay!!!
Eleanor is great with our dog, Bernie. He always loves staying at her house. I love that when I email her to check in, she responds quickly and gives me insight on how Bernie is doing. She also doesn't hesitate to ask any questions she might have. I will definitely have Eleanor take care of Bernie on all of our vacations.
Another great experience! Muskateer was welcomed back with open arms and it was such an smooth transition for him. It truly is a doggy vacay after all!
Eleanor is great, the dogs did not want to come home, now they look forward to going in the car to go to Eleanor's. Thank you.
This is the second time we left our darling dogs with Eleanor and we could tell they were feeling like they were part of her family. They had claimed their favorite spots both in the big yard and inside of the house! But both of them really loved Eleanor's dog Tank. We're coming back!
My dogs are happy to get to Eleanor's! They are frequent guests as Eleanor's and we are all very pleased with the care they receive! Thanks, Eleanor!
Kassi and Ollie loved staying with Eleanor and the family, they also made a new friend with Eleanor's dog who is a great big softie. Thank you so much. Rob.
This was my first experience working with dogvacay and doing any type of in-home boarding and it was positively wonderful! Eleanor was very flexible with times and easy to work with, her home was a great environment for my dog & Tank is just a hunk of love. It worked out so well with my situation and I would definitely do this again!
Our dogs and our family had never been separated before we left them with Eleanor. When we came to Meet & Greet, it was as if Bianca and Blaze had been there before. They immediately bonded with her dog Tank in the big back yard. Eleanor's manner is calm and motherly. After their stay, they were happy and healthy. There is no question that we will be bringing our dogs back to Eleanor again in the future!
Our first experience with Eleanor--and with DogVacay--was terrific. Eleanor was responsive in arranging a meet-and-greet and made sure our dog Pepper and I were comfortable with her as a host. Eleanor has a lovely home and family, and I felt more than confident that Pepper would do well there. We were kept updated during Pepper's 11-day stay, and she came home to us healthy and happy.
Eleanor responded promptly and provided a wonderful environment for our dog. We would highly recommend her to others. She is flexible and really understands pets!
This was the second time we used Eleanor. Once again we were completely happy with the experience. My dogs are happy, happy at Camp Eleanor! I know they are well cared for and can relax when I'm away, thanks to Eleanor and her family.
This is the nicest family you could hope for with the sweetest dog ever! They were wonderfully kind to our Westie. Eleanor is very knowledgeable about dogs and clearly has a great deal of experience in caring for them. I was very confident that she would know how to handle any situation. Very happy we tried DogVacay and found Eleanor.
Due to a family obligation requiring an out of state trip, my husband and I needed to find someone to care for our dog Olive. It was a scary task as we've never left her with any one other than a family member. We certainly did not want to leave her in a kennel somewhere in a cage. Lucky for us, we found Eleanor! After meeting Eleanor and Tank we felt 100% comfortable and confident that we could leave our dog with them and know that Olive would receive all the love and care that she needs.

While we were away, Eleanor was kind enough to take a couple pics of Olive to reassure us that she was okay and having a fun time. How thoughtful! When we called to check in with her, she picked up the phone every single time.

Once we got her back home she slept through the whole next day. She had so much fun and play-time which she is not used to, she was just spent! It was wonderful to know that she had so much fun and was so very well cared for.

I would not ever hesitate to leave Olive in Eleanor's care, in fact, it's nice to know of someone that treats and cares for our dog like their own. I would definitely VERY highly recommend her services and will be sure to see them again when the need arises.
My dog didn't want to come home. Eleanor is delightful and really loves her charges.
We just love Eleanor, her family, and most of all Tank! This was a great experience! Our dog had unexpected teeth surgery done right before his stay. He was recovered enough that we felt OK leaving him, but he was on a soft food diet and a pill for the time he was with Eleanor and Fam. They were amazing and made his food every morning and evening to soften it so it didn't hurt the stiches in his mouth. They sent photos and kept us updated while we were gone. When we picked him up he was just finishing a couch cuddle session with Eleanor and Tank, and he didn't seem in a big hurry to want to leave his new extended family :-).

Anyway, I would absolutely recommend Eleanor and her family. They are all very warm and friendly, and they make their dog guests feel so comfortable and welcome in their home. Tank is a really special friendly dog too. We just love that he's friends with Cesme. We've already booked our next sleepover!
Ralphie feels at home at Eleanor's place. He and Tank do a great job wearing each other out! They make our getaways stress-free!
My dog loved being with Eleanor's family and Tank. They treated him like their own. Sandy loves to play outside and had lots of fun there. Eleanor was very easy to work with and made me feel very comfortable about leaving my dog.
I was very nervous leaving my two paw-babies behind while we went on vacation(out of the country, i might add!). I had never really left them before. Especially, since Sadie has separation anxiety and Rocky is our rescue.
Rocky, blended right on in from the very first second. He was thrilled to add Tank, Eleanor and Brian's Great Dane, to his list of best friends!
Sadie, on the other hand, did not. The first night she cried and howled. Luckily, I chose Eleanor and Brian to paw-sit! They were patient and loving with my girl. They treated her just like they would their own dog. They were worried about her stress level and asked me, if they needed to, ask for our vets advice/help. Luck would have it though, that their patience and love was enough and she slept better the second night.
My dogs were in great hands. Their sons also enjoyed time with my dogs. They have two teenage sons who also helped their parents care and play with the all the dogs. Their dog, Tank, is a hoot! He is one of the most friendliest dogs I have ever meet. He loves to play and seems to enjoy all the company! I know Tank and my pups are looking forward to many playdates in the future!
I know that their house is nothing compared to home with mommy and daddy but it comes close as possible. They allowed my pups to sleep with them, snuggle with them on the couch, have free reign of the house and all the hugs and cuddles they want.
I can tell you that if we ever have to go out of town again, there is no doubt who we will leave our pups with... Eleanor, Brian & family! I can not recommend them highly enough!
Eleanor took tremendous care of Ralphie, or should I say Tank? Ralphie had a blast! As soon as he got home, he was ready for a nap. A tired dog is a happy dog! We will definitely arrange regular "play dates" for Ralphie and Tank.
Hartzel had such a great time with Tank! Eleanor & her family really took such great care of him. He looked so happy & comfortable when we picked him up. We will definitely be taking Hartzel back in the near future!
Our two dogs spent a weekend with this host. It was an excellent experience and I cannot think of a way it could have been better. We will definitely use Eleanor again! I give her 5 stars!
This was my first time using Dog Vacay, so naturally, I was a bit scared to leave my Lola with someone new. However, I have to say it was a great experience. Eleanor, Tank and the rest of her wonderful family did a great job of caring for Lola while I left on a last min trip. Tank is such a gentle giant. Lola is usually not very relaxed around large dogs but at our meet and greet they got along great. And, after talking to Eleanor and her family I felt comfortable and confident she was in good hands. She has a large yard, which was great for Lola since she loves to run around. Eleanor was also great about working around my departure and arrival times which was very helpful. Thanks Eleanor!!
My 2 dogs had a great time with Eleanor. When I got home they were worn out from an action packed stay with her and her family.

Eleanor's family was very friendly and welcoming, and her home is in a great neighborhood with a huge lawn for the dogs to play in.

I would highly recommend anyone to approach Eleanor for their next dog stay.
