About Elissa

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! I'm Elissa. I have loved and owned dogs since I was a child, and I would love the opportunity to help you by providing love and care for your fur bebe while you're away. I love dogs of all breeds, shapes, sizes, and age. I have experience taking care of older dogs who need medication, oral or injections. I can give details if asked. Currently, I have two fur bebes in my home: Tosca and Bella. They are sweet, playful, loving (and spayed) girls who love all people and dogs. I have a fenced in back yard with dog door access, dog crates, several dogs beds, and lots of love to give. Let me know if I can be of service to you. :)

I brought my dog, Buttons, back to Elissa's for a 2nd stay & she was excited to get there. She didn't walk in... she ran! I felt safe leaving her there.
I boarded my dog, Buttons, a Jack Russell terrier/Pointer mixed 2 yr. old, w/ Elissa R. for 13 days. I was very happy w/ the physical accommodations, especially the doggie door & the fact that the backyard was fenced.

Buttons returned to me as a happy, friendly pup just as I had left her. Elissa had sent me several pictures of Buttons during my absence in which I saw a dog at ease & comfortable. She was well cared for & safe.

I hope to allow Buttons to stay there again. Elissa was very friendly to Buttons & I.

Elissa was great. She took good care of Lily and gave me peace of mind while on vacation. We would love for Lily to stay with her again.
Elissa did an excellent job taking care of my cattle dog for a 3 night stay. She has obviously taken care of dogs for a number of years, and had 2 friendly dogs of her own who got along well with my Crikey. My dog doesn't just freely take commands from anything than less than competent, confident people, and Elissa handled him with ease. He quickly became her shadow, as cattle dogs often do with natural leaders. Elissa was very accommodating when I wanted to meet her to take my dog to the beach for an afternoon, and she even sent me regular pics of his contented self chilling with her at home while I was away. She was professional, and her price point very reasonable. I recommend Elissa and would use her pet sitting service again.

Elissa was amazing! She very graciously accepted a last-minute boarding request and was amazing when it came to communication. Izzy got along really well with Elissa and her dogs, and had a lot of fun at Elissa's place. Elissa also sent me pics of Izzy enjoying herself and promptly let me know about her schedule, when she needed to go out for a bit. I'll definitely leave Izzy with Elissa the next time I'm in Wilmington.
