About Lena

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Are you looking for a responsible, hard working animal lover that will take the best possible care of your pet? Then look no further! Lena's Pet Services can take care of all your pet needs.

I grew up in a home with pets so I have had experience for over 20 years. I have experience professionally pet sitting for over ten years and I am certified in pet first aid and CPR. I am a reliable animal lover who will make your pet feel at home. I am the proud parent of a sweet, lazy 9.5 year old chihuahua named Sparkle.

You can schedule an appointment for a free meet and greet to determine if it is a good match. I have occupancy for 2 dogs at a time and will accept a dog from two separate owners on a case by case situation when the dogs are compatible. The safety and comfort of your dog is my number one priority!

I can't say enough good things about our recent house/pet experience with Lena. She was great and we will definitely ask her to help us again in the future.

We needed someone to stay with our dog, Griffin, our four rabbits, and to generally look after our house while we went on a week long trip at Thanksgiving. Lena did a meet & greet with us at our house a couple of weeks before we left to get detailed instructions. This was our first experience with DogVacay but we could tell right away that Lena loves animals and would to take great care of our critters.

Lena arrived and stayed at our house just as we had arranged. Throughout our trip, we got lots of pictures of Griffin having fun and no doubt getting a lot more exercise than usual. We had no worries at all about the care our pets were getting while we were away.

After we returned, Lena stopped by to pick up something she had forgotten at our house. Griffin's excitement and joy at seeing her again just reinforced the good feelings we had about having Lena in charge while we were away.

As I said earlier, we will definitely be asking Lena to help in our future pet sitting needs.

Thanks again for everything Lena.

Lena clearly loves all dogs! She is great, personable, allows them on the bed and couch (close to my heart) and always sends pics to keep you at ease while you are away.
Lena was great and sent some updates throughout the day. I felt very comfortable leaving my doggie with her.
I would absolutely let my dog stay with Lena again. Costello made a lot of great new four legged friends, and I got several picture updates every day. I could tell my pup had an awesome time.

I would also like to thank Lena for being accommodating when we had issues with our flight getting back into town.

I would highly recommend letting Lena watch your dog, and I hope that Costello has a chance to stay with her again!
I think Lena is a very dedicated sitter who put my dog's needs above those of her own dog . Every time I Emailed her , she was quick to respond . I would not hesitate to recommend her .
Lena was awesome! We needed extra services, including pick-up and drop-off for our 2 boys, and she was so incredibly helpful. She was very responsive, sent photos and videos, and was a perfect host.
My dog stayed with Lena for 5 nights and he was well taken care of. Lena is a great communicator and stayed in touch with me throughout my time away. She sent multiple photos each day and let me know how he was doing. This was my first experience with dogvacay so I don't necessarily have anything to compare it to from the site, but just from my experience with having other people take care of my dogs, I thought Lena was an excellent caretaker!
Lena is very responsive and sends lots of photos! Do be aware that this host will charge extra for any hours your dog stays with them past 24 hours after your drop-off time.
This was my first time using DogVacay and had a great experience. I work a 12 hour work day and needed someone to take my girl out midday for her time in the sun. Russell and Lena are great with Mocha. Always get updates on her health and attitude. And my girl as Attitude sometimes! But they let her set the pace but maintain her obedience training. I'll keep using them with confidence.
Lena and Russel are great! I was able to get Mocha in with my favorite dog walker on short notice for a short vacation trip to Florida. Received daily updates and photos of my girl enjoy her stay. They worked me even when I had a flight delay. Thanks guys
Lena was great! She sent tons of pictures and kept us updated on our little guy's activities, which we really appreciate. Would definitely recommend.
We didn't anticipate any problems with our poodle but the Hotel told us he was barking so loud they removed him from the room. I immediately needed to find someone to care for him on such short notice; Lena replied quickly. Jaxson came home happy and we were thrilled. We were so lucky to find Lena and have her care for Jaxson on such a short notice. Received photos and immediate response to my texts. I wouldn't hesitate to use Lena again.
Used for daycare
Lena did an awesome job hosting my dog Lola while I was on vacation. She responded quickly, was very attentive and texted me pictures of my pup daily. I would recommend her highly and will definitely use her again. Deidra
This was my first time using DogVacay and leaving my puppy with someone that I didn't know. I was very apprehensive, but Lena quickly made me feel comfortable with the process. We had a meet-n-greet so our puppies could meet, which made me feel more at ease since we'd previously met with more aggressive dogs. She constantly kept me up to date with texts and photo which were very needed, and asked questions to ensure Sirius's and my needs were met. . I really appreciate her caring for Sirius and will definitely come back when we take our next trip out of town.
Lena was very friendly and super attentive. Sent lots of pics which were very much appreciated. Would use again.
Lena was amazing! I felt completely at ease after dropping off Lennie, and he was so excited to stay! Lena was flexible with me when I needed to extend my pick-up time by an hour and is very accommodating. Great location for dog walking. Lennie was a happy pup when I picked him up and I could tell had an amazing time. :) I found my every-time Austin dog sitter!
Super easy going and available to work around my schedule. Gave regular updates on Dagwood to keep me in the loop. Overall very good.!
