From my first contact with Alex, it was clear he loves animals and would care for my dog as his very own! I was very nervous leaving my dog alone since he has special needs (dog aggression, separation anxiety, medication needs, etc.) but Alex took the time to comfort Broccoli and give him the attention and care he needed while I was away. While away, he sent updates every time he came to care for ...

Alex LOVES dogs and it shows in all his interactions with them. He is loving but firm and is always in control when interacting with his charges. He deeply cares for the well-being of his own dogs as well as others'. He always treats the dogs with loving kindness and they respond. I would trust my own dog with him for any length of time. If Alex is taking care of your dog you can ...

Alex has been watching my dog for several years. He is reliable, and so good with my girl Brownie. He treats her as if she is her own when she’s there. Gives her lots of love, takes her on many hikes/walks and even makes her homemade food! Brownie loves staying there, it’s a vacation for her! I would recommend Alex to take care of anyone’s dog- he is absolutely the best!

I especially like getting out in nature with them, and that is why my specialty is taking them on trail walks in Balboa Park. I can tell they appreciate the trail walks over a simple around the block ...

When Alex watches your pet

My favorite thing to do is go on walk/hikes in Balboa Park. There are so many trails, it's a great variety of options. It's easy to see the higher level of excitement from the dogs when visiting the park vs just around the neighborhood, they love it! I love to go to the dog beach too!
