About Ellen

I am a qualified Vet nurse, who has had dogs since I was tiny and love looking after them.

I have worked in rescue homes, kennels, vet practices and have been a petsitter/ dogwalker for years. I currently work weekends as an emergency Vet nurse so I am free during the week to care for peoples pets. I would also be able to prevent them from injury and detect if they were to become unwell,and give first aid if desired.

I live next to a large park and am very active so love going for long walks. This suits most dogs! But equally happy to cuddle up with them on the sofa when they're not so hyper.

I have a lovely collie called Louis who is very good with other dogs and loves making new doggy friends.

When staying with me, I will dedicate all my time to dogs and keep them as happy as they can be while you are away!

I live near the Meadows, Princes Street Gardens and often go to Portobello, Cramond etc for day trips with my own dog Louis.

As an experienced animal carer I can walk, feed, play with , groom, bathe, nail clip animals as you wish!

I am happy to cater to picky eaters and also those who need medication, I have administered insulin in the past so can also do this with your permission.

Happy to cater to all types of dog and can let you know how your pet is getting on by text/phone/ send photos if you like!

    Phillip had a brilliant time playing with Ellen’s lovely collie. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
