About Ellen

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Do posh and pampered describe your pup? Then it's your lucky day! Welcome to La Maison de Fifi where your precious pup will receive the ultimate in one-on-one personal care and attention while you are away on business or personal travel! I limit my care to one special guest at a time (unless you have siblings or two pups) who will share Fifi's tranquil space including her own room with toys, bed and TV. Your pup will receive frequent strolls around the neighborhood with Fifi and me from morning until bedtime.

I generally work from home so your pup will rarely be alone - and of course will always be with Fifi :) I have a big sunny terrace to spend time outside on pretty days. Photo texts provided for updates. Fifi likes her food served warm with a quarter of a hard-boiled egg - and your pup will receive their food served to their personal taste, too. We have lot's of toys here to share - a true concierge style home away from home with lot's of playtime and TLC!

Fifi and I look forward to welcoming and pampering your pup soon at La Maison de Fifi!

Ellen offers a unique service for small calm dogs that need extra attention. She and her friendly playful Shih Tzu Fifi live in a peaceful neighborhood in a very beautiful pup-friendly apartment.

Ellen mostly works from home and hosts only one dog at a time so that your pup will be in a peaceful friendly environment totally surrounded by attention.

She has an extensive experience owning small dogs, so she knows perfectly what they need and like. If your pup does not like bigger dogs and is not too active, Ellen's services are the best option.
Ellen was an outstanding host who made our dog feel right at home. A+++.
I recommend Ellen 100%, after a weekend with her my dog came back happier than ever :-) Thanks Ellen!!!!
Ellen was very sweet to my little guy, Teller. He was given the full run of the place and particularly enjoyed hanging out in Ellen's bedroom window to watch the neighbors. Teller is very picky when it comes to eating and so Ellen was also sweet to help out by sharing some of FiFi's hardboiled egg in the morning.

I've been looking for someone regular to watch Teller and Ellen is definitely a great pick.
