About Eleanor

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Veterinary Assistant and 15 years of loving and caring for pets!

My fur-baby Penny and I love entertaining our fury friends! We love taking walks to the beautiful Winnemac Park while chasing squirrels and visiting other fury friends in our very dog friendly neighborhood. On our way, maybe we can stop by Urban Pooch and pick up some peanut butter puppy friendly ice-cream and a duck foot! Indoors we play "Attack the quick, tiny, red creature!" (Don't tell them it's a laser pointer ;) We wrestle (if everyone is in the mood), share belly rubs, and practice our tricks (and even learn new ones).

My boyfriend, Eric, and I have opposing work shifts so it is very rare that the pups are left alone for longer than a few hours at a time, if at all. Please feel very comfortable with contacting me with any additional questions.

We would love to have your pup visit, stay, roll-over, and shake! See you soon :)

Loved using Eleanor. She was great all around - very communicative. We felt at ease leaving Murphy with her, knowing how knowledgeable and loving she is with dogs. We will definitely use her again!
Eleanor was a fantastic pet sitter for my dog Shelley when I was out of the country for 10 days! She was extremely communicative right from the booking date and was very flexible in setting up a meet and greet. I got pictures of my pup every day and never felt concerned about being away since I knew she was in good hands. Eleanor will definitely be my first choice to pet sit the next time I need to leave town!
Eleanor and Eric were great hosts and very communicative and accessible. I felt very comfortable knowing that Eleanor is a vet assistant and she gave me some helpful training tips for my dog. Tink had a great time staying with them and their sweet dog Penny - I know she will love another DogVacay with them soon!
Eleanor & Penny were fantastic...from our meet & greet to the minute I picked Darla up to go home, Eleanor was so accommodating and friendly. She kept in touch leading up to and during my dog's stay, checking in to firm up the drop off time, sending pics & videos of my dog having a blast, and then being really flexible about my pick-up time. She even gave me a parking pass to leave my car in front of her house overnight so I could take the el downtown. I also felt extra comfortable leaving Darla with Eleanor because of her experience working at the animal ER. Who better to dogsit my baby!? The only drawback was that Darla had so much fun with Penny that she just moped around all day after coming home. She misses her new friends, so I plan to book again soon :)
Tucker loved hanging at Eleanor's place and made a new friend with penny. Took great care of my dog!
My pup stayed with Eleanor C and her pup, Penny, while I was gone for 5 days. They are both relaxed, calm and good-hearted. EC sent photos and I could tell Maya was happy and felt at home. EC was very accommodating about pick up time when my flight was delayed. I am relieved to find a good fit for Maya and will definitely book again.
Great experience from meet-and-greet to pick up. Thanks for taking such good care of Kennedy.
Eleanor was wonderful and Bear loved her! She sent pictures & updates via text so we really felt comfortable. What a great first experience with dogvacay & we will definitely be using Eleanor again!!!
Eleanor was so great! She has a sweet dog of her own so Lincoln had a playmate all weekend long. She kept us updated with pictures and texts while we were away. Lincoln had a great time. He was exhausted when he came home and I'm pretty sure he woke up looking for Penny :) I would highly recommend Eleanor to anyone in the Chicago area.
Eleanor was absolutely phenomenal! She went above and beyond my expectations. Picking him up the night before I left and dropping my dog off so he could be in my home when I returned from my trip. I was out of the country, so communication was difficult, but she sent emails and updates as needed and responded quickly to my emails! I was able to enjoy my vacation knowing he was in good hands.

My dog tends to not eat when I'm away and Eleanor tried several different tactics to get him to eat, even going so far as to using her own dog's wet food when the supply I had provided ran out. The fact that she was concerned for his appetite was a relief and I knew he would be fed one way or another!

If you want 100% peace of mind that your pup will be pampered and well taken care of while you're away, book with Eleanor!
