Alex was simply amazing!
I mistakenly chose boarding in the sitter's home instead of house sitting, but didn't want to be a pain by changing the reservation. I was anxious about how my dog would do in someone else's home, but Alex did such a good job with her, and alleviated both of our anxieties!

Alex was fantastic with our cute but somewhat neurotic Hilde. Great communication from beginning to end. Will absolutely use again!

Alex was very responsive throughout the entire process, and flexible with drop off and pick up, etc. she sent lots of updates and pics and my dog seemed to have a great time with her (thanks for all the exercise)! She was able to book last minute and I would definitely ask her to watch my dog again!

Foster experience w/car - will run!

I volunteered with City Dogs Rescue, including picking up rescue pups, bathing them, and otherwise preparing them for the foster / adoption process. I also conducted interviews with foster applicants to ensure the pups would have a safe home. I've always had a dog growing up and truly love animals of all kinds.

I am very flexible on weekends and love to take dogs out to a park in Virginia called Scott's Run for longer walks ...

What Alex would like to know about your dog

I don't have breed preferences, but I would like to know whether your dog is a rescue pup or has any history that I should be aware of. Specifically, I'd like to know how your dog reacts to / interacts with the following:
- Other dogs
- Children
- Weather / Storms
I'd also like to know how old your pup is and how far they usually walk before becoming tired!

Can provide daily exercise

When Alex watches your pet

If you're comfortable with me driving your pup, we would go out to Scott's Run on the weekends (a nature preserve located about 20 minute drives out in VA.) Otherwise, I can walk them wherever the pup is used to if they have friends at a certain dog park or certain potty spots they prefer!
