Alex is responsive, responsible, and great with dogs! We were so impressed by him and have already booked our second stay. He came to housesit our dog Sophie for us over a long weekend trip away. Alex instantly bonded with Sophie and showed genuine care and concern for her wellbeing. He was prepared and handled her reactivity without an issue. We came home to a happy dog and amazingly clean house. Thank you Alex!

Daphne and Banjo clearly had a blast with Alex! He was on time, communicated frequently and clearly, and followed their routine to a T. Alex clearly knows how to read dog behavior and I felt very confident with him walking/sitting for these two, especially since they can be a handful together. I would work with Alex again in a heartbeat!

Alex has years of experience taking care of all sorts of dogs and cats. He often cares for my 35lb cattle dog and 10 year old grumpy cat when I am away. My dog is VERY high energy, but she is always tired when Alex is done with her! He is a reliable dog sitter and truly cares about the dogs he watches. I highly recommend him.

Loving Care When You're Not There

Reactive? High-energy? Puppy? Senior? Whatever makes your pup special, I can handle it, and I enjoy the challenge!

I currently work in Sacramento at the Foundation for California Community Colleges, assisting with foundation-wide operational functions. Before this, I was a medical case manager in San Diego for over 5 years where I gained valuable medical knowledge which has helped me in my care for dogs. I have also grown up with dogs ranging in size ...

What Alex would like to know about your dog

What is their normal routine? Any reactivity to other dogs, people, or animals? Any medications or dietary restrictions?

When Alex watches your pet

Lots of walking, lots of tug-of-war, and lots of love.

If needed, I can give you pooch a bath. Trips to the dog park are also okay, only at owner's request.
