Eleanor McCoy, Owner
East Paws Pet Services

Hi, my name is Eleanor McCoy. I am a pet sitter and dog walker in Fort Lauderdale, FL. I started East Paws Pet Services in 2008 and began this pet sitting, dog walking and pet care services journey. At that time I was employed by the School Board of Broward County as a bookkeeper and also worked in fitness clubs as a Certified Group Fitness Instructor.

I have been a member in good standing with the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS) since 2008. I feel education is an asset in any industry and have taken advantage of all the resources NAPPS offers. In 2010 Animal Behavior College (partner with NAPPS) offered a program to become a Certified Dog Trainer. I signed up and excelled in that course and gained the title of Certified Dog Trainer.

Still eager to learn all I could with the care of my client’s pets, I became a NAPPS Certified Pet Sitter in 2011, which included the American Red Cross Pet First Aid and CPR.

In 2013 while attending the NAPPS Conference I was certified by Pet Tech for CPR, First Aid and Care of pets. This is a hands-on course, which for me is a better way to learn by reading it, seeing it and doing it.
To round out my resources for everything pet, I joined Pet Sitters International (PSI) in 2015.

Our pets are dependent on us for all their needs. They say it takes a village to raise a child well, I feel the same way about your pets. I want to be part of your family to help you with the care of your pets when you aren’t there.

When in our care your pets will be in the comfort of their own home with all those familiar smells, sights and sounds!
