About Ellen

With 15 years of dog ownership experience and currently being away from my 3-year-old dog, Alfie, my motivation to be a dog sitter in Australia is driven by a desire to extend the care and companionship I've always enjoyed with dogs. As I miss my own furry friend, I am committed to providing a reliable and professional dog-sitting service, ensuring that each dog receives the attention and care they deserve in their owner's absence. 

I aim to create a secure and nurturing environment, offering peace of mind to pet owners while sharing the love and responsibility of caring for their canine companions. I also work in the per industry and am responsible for the organisation of Australia's largest Veterinarian expo and conference. In this space, I have acquired an extensive knowledge of pet care. I believe all my experience makes me the perfect sitter and would love the opportunity to look after your pet. 

I work from home on Mondays and Wednesdays and can be flexible with other days. 

I live right beside a dog park and a beach which is perfect for walks.

Familiar with dog training techniques
I have been a dog owner basically my whole life! Having dealt with caring puppies up to very elderly dogs. My dog Alfie who’s three we got during covid and is an extremely nervous dog, this has made me well equipped with dealing with nervous and shy dogs. I used to work in a veterinarian surgery practice, so have knowledge or pet care from a medical stand point, I am also the project director of Australia’s largest veterinarian expo which has equipped me with so much knowledge.
