About Elena

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Let your dog experience the royal treatment overnight. KING or Queen, small, medium or large, any breed welcome. I also take care of kitty cats too! I go to your home & take care of everything that you need to have done while you are away!
I just started pet sitting and already have a number of clients. I grew up with always having dogs around me. I am a very competent, trustworthy, responsible person who loves dogs! No need to worry about them getting exercise, enough love & affection! I have my own business from home in which I manage to and have adequate time also to care for dogs. My own business is called "Dog Dynasty." I live in a beautiful area in Heritage Hills of Westchester by myself with no other children or animals. I would love the opportunity of meeting & caring for your special animal. I even take care of cats too!

Let me start off by saying, I am very picky and diligent when finding a pet sitter. Elena spent about an hour and a half getting to know my husband and I and our dogs at our meet and greet. I could tell she would be a great fit from that first meeting. We left our 2 dogs and our foster with Elena for the first time this past weekend and could not have been more comfortable and happy about our decision. This is the first time we have left our dogs and I didn't stress about them and their well-being the entire time. Looking forward to planning more trips in the future...
Thank you for such a wonderful visit! Layla had such a great time, felt very comfortable and came back rested and happy. The whole process from meet&greet to reservation request and drop-off and pick-up was handled smoothly. Elena gave great communication and even sent a picture of Layla on vacation! Highly Recommend! Definitely will use Elena again!
Elena is the Dog Whisper of Somers, NY. I'm so lucky to have found her. She connected very well to our gentle little terrier. Our dog immediately bonded with Elena. She's a very warm loving spirit. I was able to enjoy my holiday and not worry. I'll definitely use her services again. Thanks again Elena.?
Maggie and Zuko had a great time with Elena. She's warm, loving and happily enjoyed the energy of our two Australian Shepards. Maggie and Zuko are already asking for more playdates. Elena is a delight. We highly recommend her.
Elena was great and very experienced in taking care of my large breed dog, would definitely book another vacay with Elena.
Elena was wonderful with our girl Shawnee. She took good care of her for 3 nights and we will definitely be using her services again. We just know that Shawnee was loved and cared for while we were away. Thank you so much Elena!!!
Elena was great! She was very professional and made me feel at ease about leaving my dog for a week. During our meet and greet I could tell she was an experienced dog sitter and her place was spotless which really impressed me. I searched high and low for a dog sitter and Elena was the only person I felt I could trust. I highly recommend her.
Elena was fantastic with my boy Dante. She kept him mentally stimulated and comfortable. He was happy and active when I picked him up. It was clear they bonded. Wonderful!!
Elena provided a wonderful home for Chess and Maggie while we were out of town for over a week. At our earlier meet and greet, it was clear that both dogs felt very comfortable with Elena, her lovely home and gorgeous neighborhood. Elena picked up our dogs very early (6am!!!) on the day we left so we could easily meet our morning flight. During the dogs' stay Elena drove them to our vet so that Chess could receive her arthritis booster - a 40 minute drive each way - and she also administered oral meds to Chess daily. Texts and pictures Elena sent allowed us to feel very comfortable that the dogs were very happy and well cared for while we were away. When I picked them up, Chess and Maggie were very relaxed and happy. We are so very happy with Elena's exceptional care and love that she provided for Chess and Maggie while we were away.
Elena was wonderful!!. I was going away for a week and need to board my 2 dogs with someone. I was very nervous leaving them, because my chihuahua (lola) can be very anxious & nervous around strangers. But by the end of our initial meet and greet, my lola was sitting on her lap :). While I was away my other dog kept itching & Elena asked if it was ok to bathe her and even was thoughtful enough to get a special oatmeal shampoo to reduce itching. She is really great , cares about the animals in her care and I would definitely feel comfortable leaving them with Elena in the future.
Elena was wonderful! She took great care of Layla, my dog and kept in touch with me throughout Layla's stay with texts and photos. She was super willing to accommodate my dog (who is aggressive toward other dogs, so she has to stay alone) and I was very, very appreciative of that. Layla returned to me happy, healthy and stress free! Will definitely return to Elena when I need a dog sitter! :)
Elena was wonderful! She accommodated our schedule completely so that we could make our event. We were completely comfortable with her immediately and our puppy loved her too. She kept in touch with us from the moment we dropped off our dog and I never spent one second worrying about anything. Our dog came home very happy and relaxed and very well behaved too! We hope to use Elena again and again.
Elena was excellent. It was obvious that she loves dogs. My dog was comfortable with her. She sent me texts and updates to keep me aware of how he was doing. She is very friendly. We would definitely use her again.
Elena was a warm ands ring dog sitter for Casey. She walked him many times a day; she kept him on a schedule that we wanted; she took pictures and communicated with me regularly about how he was doing. She understood his fears and worked with him so beautifully!!! For example, he slept on her bed as he does with us which made us feel good.
In short, Elena is terrific and we will use her again when needed.
Elena is wonderful and I would highly recommend her! She is so kind and compassionate and gave our pups (2) so much love and attention. Elena sent updates and pictures via text and assured us that our pups were having a great time. They have stayed with Elena a few times now and they clearly love her! They get super excited to see her and enjoy their vacation too! This enables us to have a great vacation and peace of mind knowing that they are being very well taken care of.
Elena was great. She was very reliable, responsible and kind to my two dogs. Her home is very well kept. She communicated with me on a daily basis letting me know how my dogs were doing. I felt secure in leaving my two dogs with her. I highly recommend her as a pet sitter.
Elena was such a great host to our English Bulldog. He is not an easy dog, but she let us know that was okay. Elena provided regular updates and pictures and made us feel 100% comfortable leaving our little guy in her care. We would absolutely book with Elena again, because we know he will be receiving the best care possible. She goes above and beyond.
Elena is clearly very experienced and reassuring. she and my dog go along very nicely, and the dog was calm and happy when we picked him up. I would recommend Elena without reservation
Elena took wonderful care of our dog, a mix breed of shar-pei and lab. She is a large dog who needs a decent amount of exercise. They went for long walks, Elana sent pictures and when I picked up Annabeth, although she was clearly happy to see me, she also didn't seem eager to leave at all. We'll be back.
Excellent. An amazing love for the dogs she cares for. Very supportive to a new dog owner. My puppy loves her.
I would highly recommend Elena to any animal lover who needs to find a place where their beloved pet will be cared for. Elena made it easy to leave our pet knowing, she would get the best of care while we were away. Elena had an enthusiastic warm personality, and our dog was well cared for, putting our minds at ease. We will definitely call her for future vacations.
I was so happy to have found Elena. She was extremely caring and patient with my dog Leo. She even sent a quick text to let me know things were going well. I would highly recommend her. Thanks again Elena!
Elena was amazing with our dog. She was sweet and loving. Our pup got a little tummy ache while there because he missed us and Elena was wonderful. She kept me informed of his condition and nursed him like he was her own. I could not have asked for more. Thank you Elena!
