Alexandra has housesit for us now on three occasions. Our dogs love her and she takes wonderful care of them. We feel very fortunate to have found her .
Alexandra did a wonderful job on 2 separate occasions with our three dogs. We loved receiving updates and pictures while we were gone. We will definitely hire her again.
I know my dog is in great hands with Alexandra and his needs will be met in a timely and consistent manner. Alexandra goes above and beyond, has exceeded my expectations, and clearly has a big heart for animals!
Loving yours like they're my own!
Updates! I have taken a full-time job that keeps me busy between 7am and 5pm, so I am no longer available for daytime walks and check ins. I've also adopted a darling lab mix named Oliver. He is sweet as can be and loves to play and run with dogs of all sizes, breeds, and ages, but I would still want to introduce any potential sleepover guests to him and make sure everyone gets along ...
What Alexandra would like to know about your dog
I would absolutely like to know about any health and behavior issues or concerns, as well as any veterinary care providers; your pet's safety while in my care is paramount. Beyond that, I'd like to know about their personality, their likes and dislikes, tips and tricks that will help me help them, key phrases, commands, and nicknames they respond to (and those that do not go over well, should there be any). I'd like to know how they socialize with other dogs and if socialization should be avoided when we're out and about. I have experience with dog-loving dogs and dogs that do better with trusted human interaction only, so I'm good either way! I am truly the kind of person who would rather have a book of information about your fur-child than a quick one line (though my common sense and general knowledge is solid, so don't sweat it if you're not the wordy type). No detail is too much for me, and I'm not going to judge you in the least for leaving me an encyclopedia of dog-related information.
I'm fond of all breeds and sizes! I especially enamored with large dogs and have experience with those that could easily knock me over with their tail or jump over my 5'4 self. I've also cared for small and medium sized dogs with joy. I am most experienced with labs and similar energetic, people-pleaser personalities, though I've cared for a range of breeds, ages, and personalities. I do have some experience with "riskier" breeds like pit bulls and do not subscribe to the bad rap hype. That said, if your dog tends toward aggression, I'd like to meet them with you first and make sure everyone is comfortable with each other before setting up any appointments.
