Alex was excellent with Louis. He sent photos and texts throughout the day(weekend) to keep me informed of his reaction to his temporary new environment. I learned some things from Alex that I may have to try out for myself now. Thanks Alex. I appreciate the last minute response.

Alex and Betsy take excellent care of my boy, and he loves staying with them when I have to go out of town. Their kids absolutely adore Max and love playing and cuddling with him, and Max loves them in return. You could not make a better choice of sitter for your furry child!

If I could issue a 6th star I would! I can't speak highly enough about Alex and Betsty. I think if Abby could speak when I drop her off she's say "G'bye Mom" and run upstairs. She loves the kids and feels very comfortable when she stays at Alex and Betsy's house. I also feel so at ease knowing that she's well cared for. I LOVE all the pics - she's such a little spoiled mess ...

Responsible, Reliable & Professioal

We are a loving family of four living in a three-story townhouse with a 6-foot-high wooden fence surrounding our backyard. There is plenty of safe, private space for dogs to play. A Vivent alarm system protects our home 24/7. Our air-conditioning or heating is always set to the low 70s for a nice, comfortable environment. There is a path behind our house where we like to take dogs for walks, and also local dog ...

What Alex would like to know about your dog

I would like to know whether the pup sleeps in a crate at night, and whether the pup is house-trained and plays well with children. I would also like to know if drop-off and pickup can occur in the evening after 4:30 pm when both my wife and I are home together.

When Alex watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
There is a path behind our house where I like to take dogs on walks. If the dog is comfortable riding in cars we may take a trip to a local dog park. It just depends on what your dog needs.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
We usually have owners bring crates for the pup(s) just for nighttime and we put the crates on our bottom floor level in a nice environment around 70 degrees. We do make exceptions with dogs that are not crate-trained depending on the dog. If your dog is not crate-trained we are happy to have a meet and greet to assess. It just makes it easier at night for everyone, but if your dog is fine at night without lots of attention, then we will definitely consider.

Time I'll spend with your dog
We will spend almost all day with your dog. Either my wife or I are usually home. I have the ability to work from home some days. On occasion my wife will work part-time during the day for a few hours. Your pups will get our full attention when we are home but if we are working they may need to spend a few hours in a crate while my wife is working her part-time job (usually 4 hours max).
