About Elisa

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a mature, responsible pre-med post-bacc student. I separated from the Department of Defense in 2013 and began supporting myself through school taking care of and training dogs in 2015 after working with an applied animal behaviorist to help my mother’s dog, a rescue with extreme anxiety. I have my own business as a professional dog walker and in-home dog sitter and I have over 250 hours of training experience. I hope to complete 300 training hours and sit for the exam to become a certified dog trainer next year. I specialize in dogs-especially rescues -with anxiety and leash aggression. I have a strong love for large and “breed restricted” dogs such as “Pitt Bulls”/ Bully breeds, Rottweiler, Mastiffs, etc.

I volunteer with the Alexandria Dog World Rescue and to date have helped train and place several dogs for them into loving homes.

My promise to you: I will love and treat your dog like he or she is my own. Your dog will never be left alone for more than 4 hours/6 hours max (rare). You will return to a relaxed dog and a mess-free home. My student lifestyle allows me to provide extra attention your dog may need while you are away, as this can be a high stress time for a dog. When you return home, you will know your dog was well cared for.

Services I provide (these are flexible and will be modified based on the specific needs of your dog(s):

Walking/exercise: 30 minutes to 60 minutes. If you have two or more dogs that require different exercise levels, let me know and I can tailor a visit so everyone’s needs are met.

Training (can be done in conjunction with a walk or overnight stay as may be appropriate for training to help with leash aggression, pulling, jumping, etc.).

In home/overnight stays – I will stay over with your pup. If your pup is used to sleeping in bed with you, let me know and I will also allow it.

Elisa is AWESOME! This was my first time ever using a sitter outside the family so I was naturally worried. Elisa made time for a meet and greet and I felt very comfortable right from the start. She and Paddy (my 7 year old hound mix) really hit it off. She walked him every day, cuddled with him, and sent me lots of photos and updates. I could tell he was very happy and content with no separation anxiety. Elisa is also very knowledgeable about dogs needs (dietary and veterinary) so I feel confident that she knows exactly what to do in an emergency situation. Also she is very considerate and left my place spotless. Thank you Elisa! Paddy loves you! ❤️

Extremely happy with Elisa! My dogs loved her, she was tidy and made sure they got lots of love and exercise! Highly recommend!
Elisa was awesome! She showed up on time and was patient while it took me awhile to get going. I was a little frantic because I was running late but she took my dogs right away and played with them which occupied them and allowed me to finish packing. She sent pictures and updates throughout the visit which I appreciated very much. We can't wait to have her over again.
