About Alexandra

My husband and I have two miniature schnauzers that are practically our children. We spoil them rotten with love and affection! We have a very secure fenced in backyard where the pups love to play (with supervision of course). We also love to take our puppies on daily walks around our safe neighborhood. We have a lot of toy play time in side the house and the dogs are always allowed on the couch and/or bed for some extra snuggles and petting. We also like to have "training time" and we work on tricks with the dogs. They love to learn new things. When we watch your furry friend all of these amenities will be included in their vacay! We will treat them like one of our own.

I am a teacher which allows me to have weekends, typical school vacations, and summers free. I am also home by 4:00 which gives me plenty of play time with the pups in the evening. My husband is home during the day so this works great for our dogs because there is very little alone or crate time. They are rarely left alone for more than an hour or two at a time. As soon as I get home from work we go for a nice long walk and then spend evenings playing in the backyard or snuggling on the couch.

Both of our puppies get along great with other dogs. They have grown up around other family members dogs and neighborhood dogs and have never been aggressive. They love to play!

The animals in our house are always treated like royalty, hence the name "2 Pups Palace." We can't wait to meet you and your furry friend!

Katie always loves her stays here.
Always a good stay for Katie
Alexandra was amazing! She was very flexible with drop off and pick up times and was very attentive to Orwell. She kept me updated with pictures and videos and treated him as if he were her own pup. If you are on the search for a temporary home for your pup, search no further!
We left our dog, Max, with Alex, Dante, Louie, and Gracie for a week while on vacation, and it was AWESOME. Max had the best time and, I fear, didn't want to come home. Alex treats the dogs (both hers and yours) as if they are part of the family, so I couldn't have felt more comfortable leaving my fur baby with her. We will definitely use Alex again if she'll have us!
We have used Alexandra and her husband to host our 2 labs twice and will continue to go to her first. She and her husband are amazing. She sends pictures and videos and respond to my texts within minutes. My labs are extremely happy there and they are treated as though they are in their own home.
Here are a couple reasons that are important to me and why I use Alexandra:

1. Great communication. She always responds, send pictures, videos and gives me several updates daily.
2. She genuinely loves her host dogs as much as her own. I think my labs get away with a little more at her house (couch time etc) and even more "human time" than my own, which I'm very thankful for. It literally probably feels like a vacation for them to go.
3. Play time and routine. Alexandra asked me several questions to help her trailor her care for my labs. She went beyond the normal "what time do they eat etc" and asked more detailed questions about their habits, routines, walk etiquette, sleep location and my house rules. I'm not a fan of human food for my dogs and she was quick to ensure me that she understood and wouldn't feed them anything I wouldn't. She got them out for walks and the seemed to have played quite a bit because they were dead tired when my wife picked them up.
My #1 concern when someone watches my boys is that they are treated and cared for as well or better than I do. With Alexandra, I have no worries that she does just that. Thank you!
The experience was positive from the very first. Alexandra kept communications open and even sent pics and videos of my dogs as they played (and slept!). She handled any separation anxiety with love and care and her two adorable dogs were very welcoming! I never had a single worry while I was 1200 miles away! When we all returned home Gunny would not get out of the car and both dogs were ready for a ride when we tried unpacking the next day. I just hope Alexandra is available the next time I have to leave town!
Always awesome. I think Katie was a little depressed to have to come home even.
We are very grateful for the wonderful care that Dasher experienced at Alex's home. Like many dog owners, Dasher is so much a part of our family and we could tell right away that Alex and her husband feel the same about their own dogs and gave that caring to Dasher. We love that area of the mountains of Virginia and look forward to returning on future vacations. We are glad to know that Dasher can have a home away from home again when we do return. Thanks so much and thanks for the pictures of Dasher!
Always a great experience. Katie loves it and so do her puppies.
Katie had a wonderful time with Alexandra, so much so she didn't want to leave. I will be taking Katie back when ever I can't take her with me for sure.
Macy enjoyed being with Alexandra and her two pups so much that she actually seems sad to be back at home with her family! We plan on using Alexandra again in October when we go to Disney World! Great experience!
My 5 month old lab puppy spent the weekend with Alexandra and Dante and it was a very rewarding experience for Noe and for me. I was totally comfortable leaving her with them. Alexandra posted pictures and videos so that I knew she was being well cared for. Noe was treated as if she were part of the family and I know she misses her new friends Gracie and Louie.
Alexandra was fantastic! She took great care of my baby, going above and beyond to make sure he was eating and happy! She has two very sweet and friendly doggies of her own and they got along great with Vito. She also sent lots of updates and videos! I have already recommended her to others!
