• The Pack Sitters "Provide a Staycation for Your Dog!"

    We offer a premium concierge service for dogs Trained By Elaine™ that practice and reinforce good manner skills so they last a lifetime!  Our trained and dedicated Pack Sitters offer much more than boarding or stressful kenneling and go far beyond a typical dog-walking or pet-sitting company! We provide a unique opportunity for dogs currently in training or graduate dogs to practice and polish their skills with an experienced Pack Sitter. Our Pack Sitters are trained to use all of the tools and techniques to ensure that your dog stays on track while remaining in the familiar, stress-free environment of their own home and following their normal routine.

  • If your dog is lacking loose-leash walking skills, then look no further! We can train your dog to heel at your side in only a session or two! Simply contact www.TrainedbyElaine.com to set up an initial assessment and then you, too, can experience the enjoyment of loose-leash walking with your dog at your side without pulling even with everyday distractions!

    Choose from 2 concierge services: Daily Pack Walks or Stay-at-Home with an experienced Pack Sitter while you are away. You may also combine these services to fit your specific needs. Our Pack Sitters undergo background checks conducted by a retired law enforcement officer with over 30 years of experience.
