As a dog walker, Elaine has been walking our labrador (Florence) twice a week, for a year now. Florence absolutely loves her, starts wagging her tail as soon as she hears her van, and comes back nice and tired and happy. Elaine is extremely reliable, friendly, always punctual, and genuinely has a good rapport with our dog; what more could you ask for? I have used other dog walkers in the past and occasionally felt our dog was ‘lost in the crowd’ – I never felt that with Elaine, it’s always clear she’s looking out for each and every dog in her charge and their individual needs. I also trust Elaine completely to let herself in and out of our home when I am not around, and that’s not something you can say lightly. When our dog was a puppy, Elaine helped out with her training, and she was really reassuring and professional. I can recommend Elaine completely for your dog-sitting and training services.
