Alexandra provided her services to take care of my pet, Miso, for a significant amount of time while I had to travel extensively. My little fur baby could not have been happier under Alexandra's care. When I came back to take Miso home, she was content, calm, and in perfect health.

City-savvy cosmopolitan dogsitting!

I'm a 32 year old recent PhD grad from Duke, now working from home to advocate for environmental and wilderness protections across the southeastern United States. My husband is a full-time student, and we both love dogs. Because of our schedules, one of us is always at home -- he's only out for class 4 hours/week, and I'm only out for in-person meetings 3 hrs/week.

When Alexandra watches your pet

We live in lovely (and brand new) Townes at Brier Creek, and there are some lovely walking trails very close to us, as well as a nice neighborhood loop that goes by our mini-park and pool -- any doggy staying with us can expect to visit these 2x daily at minimum. Just outside of our end unit home is a nice grassy area facing a quiet street and a cul-de-sac for brief potty breaks in-between, and there's also a small dogs-only dog park about a half mile away for every other day running-around time!
