About Elaine

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I live in a large one bedroom apartment with a balcony in a great Hollywood neighborhood. Our building is like an oasis, filled with palm trees! There is a little outdoor area where the dogs can play in the back. I usually take my dog, Sandy, a maltese/yorkie mix (13 lbs) to Griffith or Runyon, and we frequent dog parks. We take walks and she is rich with toys! She also loves to bask in the sun on the balcony.

Sandy has several friends, is very social, and loves to play.

Sandy and I would be great hosts to your pup, she can't have enough new friends and I love all animals. There are also dogs in the building that your pup can socialize with!

Elaine was amazing! Great communication & photos of our Penny during her stay. She was easy to coordinate with and Penny had a blast! We will definitely be vacay'ing with Elaine again soon!
Elaine was very professional, asked a ton of questions beforehand to make sure she was doing her best to accommodate Duchamp's daily routine and schedule. She took extra care and sent daily photos of him which made me feel at ease and comfortable while I was away.
Duchamp was very happy when I picked him up and they got along super well with Elaine's cute dog Sandy.
I would definitely have Elaine again to take care of Duchamp again, could not have been happier during/after the stay.

Thanks Elaine,
This was my first time using Dog Vacay so I had no idea what to expect but it was great. Elaine was perfect with my dog and sent photo updates throughout the day. My dog was even sad to come home because he had so much fun playing with hers! Would definitely recomme!d.
Elaine was great!! Riley and Minnie had such a good time and felt right at home. Her pup, Sandy, was fantastic and definitely helped them acclimate. We'd definitely recommend her!
Elaine took care of our little boy for 12 nights and she was excellent! Referred to her by a friend after looking into DogVacay. So happy we went this route over boarding. I know that he was spoiled with love and we received several pics everyday. Thank you!
Elaine was awesome! I was nervous leaving my Maya for the first time, but Elaine made it much easier with daily picture and video updates of Maya having fun with her new friend Sandy. I know Maya had a great time, and Elaine was very accommodating of her needs and my schedule. I would definitely recommend her.
Elaine was great with our dog, Skye. Would definitely recommend her.
Elaine and Sandy were absolutely great! This was my first time leaving my Auggie and Elaine sent my photos and updates throughout the day. Will definitely use Elaine and Sandy the next time Auggie needs a vacay.
Our dog Banjo loves Elaine and always comes back happy!
Elaine has a wonderful personality and was really welcoming to our dog. Her own pup Sandy is too and that was really nice as our own dog can be nervous. There was lots of space and our dog came back happy!
Once again, Banjo had a terrific vacay with Elaine and her dog, Sandy. Elaine is so good with our little guy - and sent us plenty of photos to keep us entertained and reassured.
Banjo had a terrific time playing with Elaine's dog, Sandi. Elaine was really kind and seems to genuinely enjoy having our dog visit for his vacay. We feel really lucky to have met her and trust that she will take good care of him when he stays with her. This is our dog's second time with Elaine - and we're hoping to book her again!
Elaine was friendly, professional, and very accommodating. She did a meet and greet with us the very same day I requested one. Our dog got to meet her, as well as her cute dog, Sandy, and check out the surroundings.

When we picked up our dog, he was happy to see us but obviously very relaxed and himself. He didn't seem agitated or freaked out, and I booked Elaine's services again immediately for our next dog vacay.

Elaine is lovely, calm, and sets a good tone for dog care.
Elaine was great with Dante, she sent me pics and Dante was very well adjusted when I got him home. He got along very well with Sandy! Also Elaine was super reliable with appointments for Meet and Greets, pickup and drop off.
