Very pleased! Elena exceeded our expectations. She took excellent care of our babies, keeping us updated, took them for walks and lots of cuddles. Being able to let them stay in their own home environment lent to a wonderful experience for our babies.

Elena is awesome! She agreed to dog/house sit for us at the last minute, came over to meet our pup, and we booked the same day. She was extremely professional, and she went above and beyond to make sure our dog had the exercise and care he needs. We will definitely be booking with her again!

Elena was great. She was easy to work with in terms of our schedule and very patient with our dog, who can be anxious around strangers. She kept us posted on how things were going and took great care of the house. This was our first time using a Petsitter and we wouldn’t hesitate to use Elena again.

Happiest when a tail is wagging

Hi there! My name is Elena and I am a current part-time student at Georgia Highlands while also applying to medical school. I thoroughly love animals (including cats, though that may make me unpopular on Rover!) This love for animals is what inspired me to go vegetarian four years ago and I am now currently vegan. I have the utmost respect for creatures of all kind and would genuinely treat your pet as my own ...

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!

Please note that the price Rover totals for you may not be the price I end up requesting. I like to know more about your pet's needs and schedule so that I can be sure it is a fair price for both of us.

When Elena watches your pet

Walks and runs are a must! As a former track athlete, I'm used to long runs and am happy with a four-legged running buddy. However, especially with the older dogs I love, I find walking is a great form of exercise for both of us! Since I'm new to Durham, I have been exploring all corners of the area! I'm happy to spend some downtime petting or playing gently in a yard too.
