Alena was very flexible with my short, last minute booking, which was much appreciated. She took Bailey for a hike and sent several photos of their adventure. I highly recommend Alena.

We cannot speak more highly about Alena! She watched our 6 month old Sheppard again while we were on vacation and we received daily updates, tons of great photos and even a few videos. With our approval, they went on their own mini vacation where our pooch got to even experience snow for the first time! She is very, VERY recommended!

Nature's Great Guidance

I HONESTLY AND TRULEY CARE AND RESPECT YOUR DOG AS MY OWN. MY WHOLE DAY REVOLVES AROUND THEM MAKING SURE THEY ARE COMFORTABLE AND NOT WORRYING ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE BUT WHERE THEY ARE, AND HAPPY WHERE THEY ARE.

Start the morning walk while the sun's still arising! A two minute walk to a open lush grass space where your lovely pooch can smell everything he or she desires on leash or if well behaved off ...

What Alena would like to know about your dog

I very much love getting to know a dog on it's own due to their own behavior. It takes a short time for me to understand a dog's motives and personality. I like to learn behavior from the dog personally rather then the humans take. :) I LOVE ALL breeds and give every dog a chance. Sometimes my little Chihuahua can have the same temper of a pittbull just depending on the energy around. I DO NOT LABEL ANY DOG BY BREED, but by their own personal behavior and energy that surrounds them.

When Alena watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I have a GREAT neighborhood with many sidewalks around lush green grass and bushes. I will walk your dog often throughout the day on these sidewalks. 5 minutes away is a WONDERFUL OPEN LUSH GREEN PARK that i love to take my dogs every morning to start their day off right. Your dog is welcome to play freely off leash, or if more comfortable on leash still able to roam plenty of wonderful trails and sights. If its a beach day.. WERE GOING TO THE BEACH!! there are many wonderful trails around that i love to explore and its just great having good companions around for company! YOUR CHOICE, MY WATCH.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Your dog is welcome to sleep wherever he or she prefers. Some people may want to bring their own dog beds (which is great) to keep their behavior standard here, as is home. Other's who don't mind, your dog may post up on the couch, on my bed, any blankets you may bring, the cool tile floor (if enjoys coolness) or any carpet offered. I am very easy-going and have all tile for easy cleaning. Whatever YOUR HEART DESIRES, i will OBEY.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I make a huge effort to be around your dog ALL day. I do not love leaving a "new" dog to my eyes alone in a place where they are not very comfortable. I want the dog to feel support and comfort their whole stay. If that requires extra pets, extra love, sitting on the floor with them , extra walks etc, SO BE IT. I love each dog as their own and want them to feel welcome, not abandoned or worried about when their owner will come back. I have two loving dogs who are great comfort hosts as well ;)
