Alena is very reliable and helpful - my cat loves her and she takes good care of our house and is able to help out in a pinch.

Will use Alena again and highly recommend her very reliable and gave consistent updates on visits and was flexible with schedule changes and updates. House was in good condition and kitty was happy!

Your Pet's Best Friend

Sit! Now stay. That's all you might need to tell me to get me to watch your dog.

Currently a struggling art student attending an expensive university, I can't afford to completely spoil a pet of my own (tragic)......which is why I want to spoil YOUR pet instead!

You heard right. I have all this love to give but no furbaby of my own to hang out with. I just want to spend some ...

What Alena would like to know about your dog

It would definitely be important for me to know how socialized your pup is so we can take the best route to having a good time; so if your dog likes meeting other dogs great! We can probably take a walk to the local dog park like Columbus Square. If they're the solitary type that's cool I understand that we can have fun without going to a dog park.
Of course anything medical, anxiety issues, level of exercise they might want, even favorite treats and activities are great to know. I want your pet to have the experience of a great sitter! I don't discriminate against any breed.

Additional Skills
Oral Medication Administration
First Aid/CPR

Can provide daily exercise

When Alena watches your pet

Depending on the neighborhood the dog I'm watching lives in I'll mostly walk within the area of the home or wherever you recommend your pet likes to go, whether it be a usual route or a park. When my schedule is tight due to work or school I work in tandem with my partner who is also a huge pet lover! No extra pay required for him, he just likes to help me out. When we visit together with your pets its double the fun and you'll probably get some great high quality photos in the process as my partner is a photographer.
