My two dogs, Darby and Picabo, are always delighted to see Alex. They love playing and walking with Alex's dog, Willie. Alex is very professional and I highly recommend him.

Alex is a thoughtful and responsible person and a fantastic current dog owner. Though his personal dog, Willy, is a family dog, Willy clearly has an attachment to Alex in particular, demonstrating the attention and care he gives to Willy. He takes Willy on long walks (even when friends are over, Willy still needs to get his walk!), and treats him with love and patience. Alex would be a fantastic person to take care of ...

I will love your dog like my own!

Hello, my name is Alex, and yes that is a Kangaroo in my profile picture!
I have an eleven year old Shetland Sheepdog (think Lassie but smaller) who is a bundle of joy, but full of energy and stubborn as heck. Because of him, I am no stranger to long walks and those frustrating moments we all have as dog owners.
I am a recently graduated Biology Major who has plenty of experience working with ...

What Alex would like to know about your dog

I would love to know what kind of personality your dog has. How are they with people when they sees them on walks or in the home? How are they with other dogs? Do they pull on the leash because they wants to say hi to that dog across the street, or because he doesn't like them? What is your policy on treats? The better I know your dog, the more fun we'll have!

When Alex watches your pet

It depends on the dog. Please let me know what your dog prefers to do! Do they like playing catch more than going on walks? Where do you take them when you go for walks? I love taking dogs for long walks, but I am also fine with just a simple game of fetch in the backyard.
