About Elena

Hi everyone!

Looking for a dog walker who loves to train?

My name is Elena and I am 28 years old. I have worked for the DSPCA for a year and Dogs Trust for 4 years previously. In Dogs Trust I was very lucky to be supported in furthering my dog training studies! 

My walks and home visits are priced by the hour with training included if you so wish. I usually walk the dogs locally but you can pay extra time if youd like me to drive somewhere! For house sitting we can talk in more detail about what hours you need etc.

Positive reinforcement training basically means rewarding for the wanted behaviour and I would never ever hurt or upset your pet!

I am extremley comfortable with reactive dogs (dogs who react to other dogs when out), dogs with bite history are no issue to me I will make them as comfortable as I can, and I love making a dog feel more confident in their everyday life!

I love love love all animals and have owned birds, rodents, cats (currently have a beautiful boy Sphynx) and lost my own dog 3 years ago after the best 13 years.

I have my own car and happy for dogs to be in it if needed! Generally very flexible with times as this is my full time job and also can get several references from current or previous clients!

Muzzle training, Confidence building programmes, dog reactivity work, stranger danger programs can be made for you to continue any work I do!

Dogs are talking to us all the time but most people dont 'hear' them. I can teach you all about the warning signs before behaviours escalate and can also teach you how to make your dog the happiest its ever felt because they can be understood!

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to know more! :)

We were delighted with Elena .. as were our dogs. The dogs were really happy and well looked after . Her experience with handling is obvious and we were very comfortable leaving her to look after them in our home . Would have her back anytime .
