I've never met a bigger animal lover than Alex! He's loved all animals his whole life - He grew up with a great big dog named Winston, and lived with my tiny cat Mia for 3 years. He would be the best dog or cat sitter for your pet because he would not just take care of them, he would pet and play with them!

If anyone is to be trusted with a beloved pet, it's Alex. A lover and caretaker of dogs since he was young, Alex grew up with a number of dogs in his hometown of Connecticut. He knows dogs deserve the best—from love and attention to frequent walks and treats. My sister's Pomeranian Lulu and Pomchi Yoshi are big fans of Alex; his sunny disposition and upbeat attitude are infectious. When it comes to dog ...

Positive, Upbeat, Dog Lover!

Hi! I'm Alex. I've had at least one dog as a companion for my entire life - now that I've moved across the country to live in LA, I'd love to put some of my finely honed dog-care skills to work! I am a kind, carefree guy but when it comes to looking out for our furry best friends, I am as responsible as they come!

My most recent furry friend, a Goldendoodle named Winston, is ...

What Alex would like to know about your dog

No breed preferences - though I have a particular soft spot for poodle-mixes and Frenchies. I always want to be as informed as possible when it comes to the health of the pets that I take care of so please be sure to let me know all about your furry friend's diet and any details about health or behavior that I should know about. Otherwise, I love all breeds, shapes and sizes!

Would also be good to know your dog's preferences in terms of socializing with other pets. If I should stay clear of other dogs at the park or on walks, I'll be careful to do so!

When Alex watches your pet

There are tons of great places in the area to go for leashed walks including Anthony C. Beilenson Park/Lake Balboa, Sherman Oaks-Van Nuys park, Wilacre Park, and Dixie Canyon Park. Of course I am open to your recommendations if your best friend has a normal routine!

I'm a very affectionate dog lover and if your guy/gal has the energy wants attention, I'll always oblige! Big fan of catch!
