About Elan

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! I’m a designer living in a spacious duplex apartment in a doorman building that has both a terrace and a courtyard for fresh air and frolicking. I'll be primarily taking care of your dog myself, but I have four warm and loving roommates who will be sure to give your pup extra love and attention and belly rubs here and there. My parents never let me have a dog of my own, but all of my friends and family friends know me as a dog lover so I have plenty of dog sitting experience under my belt. I hope to get a dog of my own as soon as my office moves to a building that allows dogs, but until then I'd love to take care of yours!
We're only a 3 minute walk from the 87th St. dog run and a 5 minute walk from Central Park.

On a typical stay, your pup and I may watch episodes of the Great British Bake Off together and if they’re the athletic type maybe we’ll take a run by the river before settling in for the night. We’ll be sure to send you plenty of selfies of ourselves having fun and missing you.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or if you want to stop by to see if our home is a good fit for your friend!

Elan's home is the perfect space for any pup who needs space to stretch, play, and relax. The main room is plenty open and spacious. His roommates are kind and helpful. Additionally, the building has several easy access outdoor areas in addition to its close proximity to Central Park and the Riverside Dog Park!

Elan is quick to respond, communicates clearly and is very trustworthy. He's excited and eager to meet and spend time with your loved one!

Elan's the best sitter we've had in years! He kept our dog Sophie at his place and checked in on our cat Orson each day. He sent plenty of updates, so we knew they were having a good time. But what impressed us the most were his photos. Elan's a seriously good photographer, and each update was accompanied by absolutely gorgeous shots of the pets! We also really appreciated how quickly he responded to any questions we had and that he was able to watch Sophie without any other dogs in the apartment (she's a rescue and not great with other dogs).

Of course, the most important thing is that the pets really liked him. Usually when we get back from trips, Sophie seems mildly stressed and a little pissed that we left her. Not this time! After staying with Elan, she was happy and calm... it was clear she had gotten tons of attention and wasn't at all stressed.

I can't recommend him highly enough! Go with Elan, you won't regret it!!!

Elan was amazing with my 5 month old Shiba Inu and that is not an easy job to take! I had a nice weekend to myself and my Jax seemed to have really connected with Elan and felt comfortable and at ease with him.They went for walks, runs and to socialize at the dog park which was beyond perfect! I definitely plan to use him next time I need a sitter.
Thanks again E!
