Alexandra took great care of
Alexandra is a great sitter! She took excellent care of my chihuahua, and was great about communicating with us. She is detail oriented and attentive. I will book with her again!
Alexandra was a life saver. She was super sweet and communicated with me very well while I was gone. Her and her sister walked my pup while my girlfriend was at work for a few weeks. She made it very easy for me to leave knowing my lil boy was in good hands. I will be rebooking her again in the future and would recommend her to anyone looking for a dog walker in the ...
Looking to make four-legged friends
I am a recent college graduate, and moved to Austin in May of 2016. Having grown up in a large family filled with dogs and cats, I love them both dearly and have spent a lot of time walking, petting, bathing, playing with and feeding other people's animals. I also own one perfect cat named Bachan, who I am very much in love with. However, I have never been fortunate enough to have a puppy ...
What Alexandra would like to know about your dog
I always think it's a great idea to meet you and your pup beforehand. It's a great way to make sure I can care for your loved one in exactly the way he/she needs to be. Peace of mind is the key to a happy boarding! We can go over any special needs or instructions to make sure everything goes as seamlessly as possible. Making a list of any questions you may have for me or anything you would want me to know is always helpful too.
When I meet a new client and their dog, there are some questions I like to ask before the stay. I believe that having a thorough conversation about your pet's history, behavior, temperament, level of socialization, and individual quirks, will ensure that I am a great match for you and your dog. All of the questions I ask at a meet-and-greet are aimed at giving me the best overall picture of your pet's personality, and will provide me with the information I need to provide top quality care and a worry-free visit. Also, all breeds are welcomed, all doggie visitors will feel at home!
Some typical questions I will ask at a meet-and-greet are:
-How long have you had your pet? Please give me a brief history of your relationship together.
-Does your pet have any medical issues or special care instructions?
-How often does your pet interact with other dogs? Please describe those interactions.
-Does your pet pull on the leash? Do they lunge at other pedestrians during walks, or try to chase after cats, cars, squirrels, etc.?
-What are your pet's favorite games to play/treats to eat?
-Are they up to date on their required vaccinations?
-How many times a day are they walked/fed & how much for each serving?
-Does your pet get along with children? I do not have any children, but kids love to play with animals and I wouldn't want any mishaps on my walks with your dog.
-Is your pet housebroken?
