I unexpectedly adopted a dog a month before I went on vacation and was feeling horrible leaving her so soon after adopting her. Alex made me feel more comfortable with the prospect and the pictures I got during my vacation definitely helped my guilty conscience. When I returned I am not 100% sure my dog wanted to go home. I think she may have been happy just to stay with Alex and her family! Thank ...

Alex and Derek were wonderful caregivers to our two girls. They administered some medication they needed with accuracy and sent us pictures almost every day of the walks and adventures they went on. The girls were happy and healthy on our return. I really can’t give them anything but the highest rating of satisfaction. Thank you Alex!

Yogi loved Alex! :). She (and Derek) are both so nice. Yogi is only 4 months old, and they were so understanding. Alex obviously loves dogs and seems very willing to adapt to the needs of the dog that she is caring for. She also sent me lots of updates and pictures so I never worried about Yogi. We will definitely use Alex next time we need a dog sitter!

Dog lover extraordinaire!

There is nothing in this world I love more than dogs. I rescued my first dog, Dobby, a 6-year-old terrier mix about 3 years ago. We added Sophia, a 6-year-old terrier mix, to our family about a month ago. Both of our dogs have chronic medical conditions, so I am comfortable with any special requirements your dog may have, whether it be medication, dietary restrictions, etc, I will make sure your dog is healthy and ...

What Alex would like to know about your dog

I would like to know how often your dog gets walks, what treats he/she enjoys, if there are any special comforts he/she likes, what stressed your dog out, and any dietary restrictions. Plus anything else you want me to know; the more I know about your dog the better. No breed restrictions- I love 'em all! Let me know how often you want updates. When I go out of town there is no such thing as too many photos of my babies because it makes me feel better to know they are being well taken care of. I’m happy to send pictures and updates as much as you want!

When Alex watches your pet

We love walking around the neighborhood and at the MetroParks. We also love playing fetch and tug of war- we have a whole tub of toys to share! I also like running/hiking, if your dog has lots of energy to burn. My dogs love to snuggle so we can spend lots of time hanging on the couch if your dog is more of a snuggle bug.
