Elena is wonderful! She was very professional and attentive and extremely flexible. She stayed at our home and watched our dog for a week and a half and we came back to a completely clean home, happy pup and she had even put all of the laundry in the wash for me! We cannot sing her praises enough.

Elena was wonderful! All my pets loved her. Elena did a fantastic job caring for all my pets. The house was clean and tidy when we got home too. We will definitely ask her if she would sit for us again!

Elena was awesome! She stayed at my house when I went out of town for four days, and did a great job taking care of my two dogs and the house. She was easy to communicate with and sent me periodic pics of my dogs. Very mature and professional, and I will definitely reach out to her for future dog sitting needs.

Happiest when a tail is wagging

Hi there! My name is Elena and I currently work as a research assistant at the University of VA's School of Law. Having just moved out of my parents' house, I am missing my childhood beagle mix and Belgian Malinois. I've started volunteering at the Charlottesville SPCA as a dog walker, and thought my skills could benefit the general public as well! I thoroughly love animals (including cats, though that may make me unpopular on ...

What Elena would like to know about your dog

Though I love dogs of all sizes, I have a fair amount of experience with high-energy, strong-minded dogs! My parents' Belgian Malinois puppy and I spent a lot of time together this past summer- we practiced many commands and often raced each other around the yard (somehow, he always won!). Please let me know what sort of activities your dog enjoys, even if it's just cuddling on the couch. My goal is to make your pet as happy as possible!
