About Elaine Pflepsen:

For over 35 years, I've been carying for homes, pets and other various opportunities.  What is valued and important to you, I will care for from a platform of respect, strong morals, values, and integrity.  I am retired from my profession.  My career of assisting others in transition, crisis, grief and mental health allows me to transfer my skills and innate ability to deal with any situation that may present itself. Level headedness is my strength. I find house and pet sitting enjoyable and rewarding.  I grew up in Nebraska. There is a reason why it is called "The Heartland".  I was blessed to grow up in a family that owned a hardware store. Starting at a young age, our business allowed me to develop "handy" skills beyond the average person.  As an adult, I've spent many years living in Connecticut and New York City.  In 2018, I started to travel extensively. I've spent a great deal of time in Europe exploring its wonders and pet sitting.  In 2019, I traveled around the world learning about other cultures and meeting amazing people.  I even cared for a dog on a farm in Australia. One of my favorite house/pet sitting jobs entailed a small ranch with 3 horses, 7 goats, 2 dogs and 7 cats ...along with 74 yo aunt with dementia. With my vast knowledge and experience, I'm confident I can fulfill your needs, leaving you with the reassurance that your home will be taken care of and your pets loved.

Upon request, I will provide you with references and answer any questions you may have of me.

Elaine has provided us with loving care for close to 30 years. She first cared for our first born than continued as our pet sitter for our home and 3 precious dogs. Her competency exceeds all expectations. While in her care, we've had medical issues with our dogs which she handled with loving care. She even championed a major sewer backup in our basement. Her knowledge and natural curiosity allowed her to find the issue before extensive damage could occur. Without hesitation, I will continue to use Elaine's services for all my needs.

Elaine has been offering home management, updates, and pet sitting since 2000. She cared for one of our loving dogs toward to the end of his life
She cared for him lovingly through sleepless nights, administered medications, and fed him a diet that nourished him when he wanted nothing to do with food.

Elaine has provided updates and refurbishes on our rental property and home.

I appreciate Elaine's critical thinking skills, compassion and kindness. I will continue to use her services as long as she is willing! I highly recommend Elaine. You will feel comforted as she cares for your needs.
