Elena is awesome! My boyfriend and I were in need of a sitter for our pup Zooey and were not having any luck with Wag. I contacted Elena on short notice and received a response within minutes. You can tell Elena is great with dogs and Zooey was super excited to get to spend time with her. Throughout the sitting Elena sent me photos and updates about Zooey and put my mind at ease. Zooey ...

Thank you! Zooey was the absolute best to watch. And so snuggly! We had fun :)

Timber, my lab Rottweiler mix has been pretty anxious around everyone she meets the entire time we have had her. Elena was able to work past these anxieties and build a solid, and positive relationship with my baby. Timber (I think) looks forward to her time with Elena, and I couldn't be happier to have her in our service! She is the BEST pet sitter we have had, and the only one we use now.

Elena is an amazing person who has looked after my dog on several occasions. My dog Gus is a highly anxious and energetic lab/staffie mix that requires constant structure to keep him in line which Elena is able to provide. I am always confident that after a stay with Elena, Gus will return a happy pup

Home Full-Time - Loves All Dogs

I have always been a huge dog lover, and have been known to spend more time with my friends' dogs than my friends. I grew up with two dogs (a Bichon and a Lhasa, Tink and Pan), and have dog sat for friends and family since I was a teenager. I’ve cared for dogs requiring daily medications, strict schedules, dogs that struggle with anxiety, and have difficulty with their appetites. I’ve cared for ...

When Elena watches your pet

I live near Hamilton Park, which has both a big and a small dog park. Downtown Jersey City is very dog friendly with most people having dogs of their own, and the neighborhood is very beautiful and peaceful to walk around. It's great for long leisurely walks, or more energetic jaunts, depending on the pupper and their mood. My favorite local pet store is just a short walk from my house, and puppers can expect a bully stick (if their parents allow it!) while they stay with me. There will definitely be multiple games of tug of war, fetch, and just general horsing around. Evenings will be chock full of snuggles, belly rubs, head scratches, and all around spoiling your pupper.
