About Elena

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Until recently I have never lived without a dog in my life. I grew up around dogs. As a teenager I showed my award winning Tibetan mastiff. I went on to adopt three rescue dogs who lived with me until ripe old ages of 15, 16 and 18.
I have tons of patience with young or old dogs. I am a retired (but very young) school teacher who tutors part time. I have plenty of time to spend walking, brushing, petting, and playing with your dog. I have enjoyed boarding dogs for the past two years in my large dog friendly apartment. I have references from clients as well as veterinarians. I look forward to spending time with your pet. Please contact me and we will schedule a visit so we can get to know each other.
**We have a country home in the Catskills where (if you like) your city doggie can hike and enjoy a taste of country living.
*** While my daughters visit often and play with my doggie guests and my husband offers lots of love and attention, I am the primary caregiver. I do all the walking, feeding, and most of the loving !
****Please note holiday rates will be higher .
*****I usually book two doggies at a time - if your doggie prefers to vacay alone then we can work out a special rate - just let me know :)

Elena lives in a wonderful area of Manhattan, in a quiet building with an elevator (perfect for senior dogs!).

She has owned dogs her entire life, and when her family pups passed away she decided to start looking after other people's pets to fill her heart with love. Watching dogs allows her the freedom to travel with her husband while still getting in quality snuggle time with some furry friends.

Although she lives with her husband, and her daughters will definitely dote on the dogs she watches, Elena is the primary care giver and walker for your pets. She has plenty of experience, and is well qualified to look after any personality type. Five stars!

Elena was amazing! I got constant updates all weekend (because I asked for them). I could tell he was in great loving hands all weekend and was a super happy puppy when I picked him up. I will definitely use Elena next time I go out of town!
Elena was absolutely fabulous! I left my Lucy with her for 8 days and she kept me updated with tons of pictures and videos! She's caring, reliable and very available. I highly recommend her!
Elena was a delight to meet. She is warm, attentive and kind. She communicated all details in advance and sent frequent updates during our pup's vacay. Our pet was very relaxed when I picked her up which is a sure sign that she was comfortable with Elena. This was an outstanding experience all around.
