Alex is the only dog sitter we trust! She is caring, compassionate, reliable, and knowledgable. She provides great care for our three dogs and happily reinforces the training rules we use (like not encouraging jumping at the door). Our girls love her! They love just hearing that she is coming to watch them. I feel especially safe since she is a licensed vet tech- I know that if an emergency happened, they would be in ...

As the owner of two lovely Flat-Coated Retrievers, I understand the importance of a good, long, daily walk and consistent socialization.

In addition to being a dog lover, I am an experienced NYS Licensed Veterinary Technician and Force-Free dog trainer certified in Low-Stress Handling methods. I provide friendly and reliable ...

What Alexandra would like to know about your dog

Before taking your dog for a walk, I would like to verify that they are up-to-date with vaccination for Rabies. I would also like to know if your dog has any health issues or injuries. Is your dog fearful or reactive on leash? No problem! I will find a safe, quiet route for your dog to make walks a fun and enjoyable experience.

Can provide daily exercise

If humans had bionic vision and could see 2 teaspoons of sugar in 1 cup of coffee, dogs could smell those same 2 teaspoons of sugar in 3 Olympic-sized swimming pools filled with coffee! Your dog's nose is quite incredible, and they get a tremendous amount of information about the environment with it. Therefore, I like to incorporate ample amounts of time for sniffing breaks on walks to provide your dog with this much needed enrichment.

Since dogs need mental stimulation in addition to physical exercise, I like to work on some basic obedience on walks to help combat boredom and strengthen the human-animal bond.
