Alex was a great sitter! He took good care of our Husky Rocket for a weekend - sending photos and updates and taking Rocket to the dog park! He’s also responsive and flexible with timing. Would book Alex again in the future.

Alex was a great sitter for Yoshi! He took him out for walks and to the dog park and sent us photo updates. We felt very comfortable and re-assured knowing Yoshi was in good care. Yoshi was a very happy puppy!

When Alex watches your pet

I am happy to walk, run, or even bike with dogs so we can get some exercise around Boston. I personally love the esplanade along the river as well as the Back Bay Fens, but also would be interested in trying out owners' suggestions. I can stay with pups in a calm, quiet environment or introduce them to my housemates for more socializing.
