Elana was a great walker, she arrived promptly, was very good with my dog. I would definitely recommend her to anyone whose pup needs a quick, solid walk.

What Elana would like to know about your dog

When Elana watches your pet

Going on walks in the woods is the best, but we will also enjoy local parks and saying hi to other dog friends.

I am very open to suggestions!
