Spayed and Neutered Dogs
No Females in Heat
Elena and Marty are so wonderful! Thurman is usually pretty shy the first time he stays with new people, but I could tell he felt right at home with them. He got so much love and attention while he was there!! They took him on a bunch of great walks and sent lots of photos and updates. I definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a great staycation for their pups. :)
Elena and Marty exceeded expectations! Not only were they sweet people but they also took our dog on LONG daily walks and sent updates at least twice a day. Then they went above and beyond when they took him to the vet because of an issue with his paw. I would absolutely use them again for my Rover needs and suggest them to anyone else looking for amazing dog sitters. Thanks so much Elena and ...

About Elena & Marty
Big Yard+Trail+Creek = Doggie Fun!
Let two lifelong dog lovers show your dog some love! We're an active couple who jump at the chance to take our friends' and neighbors' dogs out for a walk or in for the weekend.

What Elena & Marty would like to know about your dog
We haven't encountered a breed of dog yet that we don't love! We do have a slight preference for poodles and poodle mixes, due to the lower amounts of shedding. And as stated above, we love active dogs who come ready to play, as we feel we can provide a great experience for them.
When you reach out to us, we'd like to know:
-How does your dog react to strangers, or to you leaving them?
-How does your dog react to other dogs--in the house and on walks?
-What are your dog's behavior quirks? Feeding, bathroom, and exercise routines? Favorite activities?
-Does your dog have a history of aggressive behavior--either toward humans or other dogs?
-Does your dog have a tendency to chew, scratch, or otherwise destroy any household items?
-What commands and tricks does your dog know?
-Does your dog "speak" Spanish, French, German or Hungarian (because we do!)?
-What else do you feel we should know?
