Hired Alexa to care for my 1 year old energetic puppy. Asked Alexa if she had arrived at my house and her reply was yes. This was not true as was confirmed by my door sensors and my neighbors. This was approx 12:30pm. Around 6:00pm, Alexa kenneled the pup and left my house. Our agreement was that she would stay the night. Alexa did not return to my house until just before 2am. Again confirmed ...

Alexa is amazing. My dogs love her and I’m never worried about them when she steps in to oversee the house. She always responds promptly and is an absolute pleasure to work with!

Alexa was amazing! I felt comfortable leaving our babies in her care and giving her access to our home while we were gone. She not only did a fantastic job with our babies but also keep the house clean and tidy. We will definitely use her again!!

Zookeeper with animal experience

I graduated with a degree in animal behavior, and currently work at the Fort Worth Zoo. I've been dog sitting for various families since high school, and completed an internship at the SPCA of Erie County (Buffalo, NY) working on behavioral modification with dogs. I currently don't have any pets of my own and need more dogs in my life (the dogs in my profile are my roommates), and figured this was a good way ...

What Alexa would like to know about your dog

Before taking care of a dog, I like to know what type of care the dog used to. Does he/she prefer to play in their own yard, or go on long walks, to provide a couple of examples. I am more than happy to accommodate whatever makes your dog the happiest. I have absolutely no breed preferences; I am fine with taking care of anything from a teacup Yorkie to a Pitbull to a St. Bernard or Great Dane.

When Alexa watches your pet

I love going for walks along the Trinity River, if that is somewhat near where you live. If not, I'd be fine with walking wherever your dog takes me, whether that's just down the street or around several blocks. I work Sunday-Thursday, but depending on where you live I would not mind using my lunch break to go spend time with your dog. I would also be willing to take him/her out on a walk and then hanging out in the house with them so that aren't lonely all evening. When it comes down to it, I am very much willing to work with any schedule (how long I'm there, what you need me to do, etc) that you would like. I love playing with dogs, whether that's playing fetch or tugging on a rope toy. Being someone with animal experience, I know what behavioral patterns to look at when playing and know how to respond and make it a great time for your dog.
