About Ellen

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
FYI- due to extra work and care, my rates have gone up to $60/per 24 hr period for puppies under 2 years and dogs 40 lbs +. Also, rates are for each 24 hour period; for example an early drop off and late pick up will add a day to my fee.

I am retired special ed teacher with plenty of time to devote to the care and exercise of pooches. My home is in a heavily wooded area with hiking trails that dogs love. Dogs have access to my spacious deck and fenced backyard below all day long. I have a super friendly bichon mix named Charlie and a new little terrier rescue named Bernie Sanders. We love to go to the park, beach or Fort Funston. I am a very attentive friend to dogs and devote a whole section of my living room to doggie toys and bones.

Recently, around the holidays, I lost my dad. When I came home I had three dogs booked for care. What a blessing it was to have those fuzzy faces kissing me each morning. I have had dogs all my life and I really enjoy taking care of guest pooches!

Ellen was a wonderful host and Tapas was very happy staying with her! We were just visiting San Francisco and she agreed taking Tapas without a greet and meet first. She also sent us daily updates and was very responsive in general. We will definetlly stay with her again next time we're in town.
My small dog had a nice time with Ellen. Ellen provided a good space and a good time for my dog including a nice small back yard and play time with her dogs. I would book with Ellen again.
Ellen's home is ideal for a smaller or less active dog versus our
