I am very grateful to Elsa. When I brought my dog Maeve to her for training I was very concerned because the first trainer was not successful. At that point Maeve did not seem to see the purpose in being obedient. Elsa gave good clear information, encouraged me to be consistent and it worked. She was right there supporting me and correcting me when I made a wrong move. I learned so much from her. Now because of her knowledge and help I can say that I have a wonderful precious friend in my dog. Maeve is now eager to be obedient and learn and as a result we have so much fun playing together. I feel comfortable in boarding Maeve with Elsa knowing that she will be well taken care of and enjoy her time there.-
I was initially referred to Elsa by my veterinarian. Before I brought my Sally there for a stay, Elsa showed me all around her facility and yard. I was very pleased with the set-up in her back yard, and that it was a small-scale business so I felt confident my dog would not be caged and ignored. Sally has been going to Reilly's B&B for 2 1/2 years now, whenever I have to go out of town. Sally loves Elsa! She loves to go there! And it's obvious when we see Elsa at classes that Elsa loves Sally. I highly recommend Elsa and Reilly's Bed and Breakfast for when you need a place for your dog.
My little Peanut spent a week with Elsa and was cared for like one of her own fur babies. I didn't worry one bit to leave him with with her. Elsa is very competent, and caring and Peanut just loves her to pieces (as do I). I wouldn't hesitate one bit to recommend Reilly's B&B to any of my friends.
Elsa Brett is a wonderful dog caregiver! I am more than able to comment on that fact, as she has cared for my rambunctious, young, and ever-challenging Dutch Shepherd on many an occasion. I have full faith in her abilities, and her strength as a leader of the animals she works with. That is incredibly reassuring for me as someone leaving a dog like mine in her care. Elsa is quite capable and more than deserving of your consideration as a dog caregiver. Do not hesitate. You will not regret it.
I have known Elsa for many years and have trusted her for the care of my dogs as well as my "granddogs". Elsa's background as a dog trainer makes her uniquely qualified in taking care of (and training of) dogs left in her care. One look at her facility and you will see a beautiful "kennel" with huge grassy dog runs, individual kennels for each dog, and a beautiful pool (complete with a dock diving area) for dogs who love to swim. Elsa always treats the dogs in her care like they are part of her own "pack". It is without hesitation that I recommend Elsa when you are looking for a loving kennel in which to leave your dog(s) for ANY amount of time!
We have been boarding our two dogs (a golden retriever and an English bulldog) with Elsa for almost six years. Elsa is just great and our dogs enjoy staying with her. I would highly recommend her.
There is no better place for a dog than with Elsa. The dogs are truly cared for and loved as if they were her own. They get exercised daily, including time in her swimming pool. They are also socialized with other dogs and get plenty of play time running around in her huge yard. My dog loves it there so much, I didn't think she even wanted to come home with me when I went to pick her up. Elsa's prices are incredibly reasonable for all that she provides and she loves each dog as her own. I can't say enough good things about her and the services she provides.
Elsa is not only a loving and thoughtful dog caregiver, but also delight to work with professionally. There are few people I would feel comfortable leaving my dog with - outside my own family. However, Elsa's got it all - a great facility, years of experience, knowledge and hands-on attention to your pet. She has been a wonderful trainer and I would not hesitate to leave my dog's care up to her in my absence. D. Orcelletto
My 4 children and I would be frantic during a move if it wasn't for Elsa's caregiving of our 5 dogs. She gave us updates and pictures while we were in temporary housing. I would even say that my 3 Huskies, Aussie mix and Westie had better housing than we did during that time. It was a hot summer and my dogs enjoyed swim parties, lots of love and an exercise environment to keep them active. We never worried about them for a minute in Elsa's care. Thank you Elsa. Andrea S.
