About Alec

13 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, I'm Alec. I've been a dog owner and professional dog sitter for over 20 years. I have experience with dogs ranging from 3lb chihuahua mixes up to 120lb malamutes. I am currently offering dog boarding and walking services out of my spacious apartment on First Hill. Boarding your dog with me brings two huge advantages: 1. Constant attention. My girlfriend and I both work at UW, so someone is around the house pretty much all the time. 2. Exercise! I am a super active person, and guarantee your pooch will get as many walks as they can possibly handle; my motto is that a tired dog is a good dog. Have a Rhodesian or a Border Collie with more energy than you know what to do with? Ask me about my dog jogging services!

Alec and his wife were excellent hosts! They were flexible with my schedule and good with communication regarding pick up and drop off. Jodie returned a happy pup! Definitely would book again.
Alec is great with Ginger. She loves the long walks and attention from both A&E! Ginger is always excited to see them. I'm not sure she even misses us when she is visiting Alec. I can highly recommend Alec.
Alec was amazing, so attentive to Chester and his energetic nature. Alec also discovered that Chester had gotten sick prior to his vacay and was able to take him to the vet and get him the medicine he needed. Wonderful experience, I couldn't recommend Alec more!
Alec was absolutely amazing, incredibly friendly and professional, we have 4 dogs, one of which is 18, so we had him stay at our house. The place was clean and well taken care of as were the dogs. They were all in great spirits and obviously had a good vacay. Alec was very good at keeping us updated with pictures and videos of our dogs. We will definitly use him again and recommend him to any friends looking fot someone to watch their pups!
Alec and Emily were incredible and gracious hosts to our dog Midas! This was the first time my husband and I used PetVacay and we were nervous about how this would all work out. Alec and Emily's updates put our nerves to rest. They were so sweet to take Midas to parks to allow him to play and get tuckered out. They showed real interest in making sure Midas was happy and we couldn't be more grateful.
Alec did a wonderful job keeping my two energetic dogs tired out and happy! I received many happy dog pictures which made me feel reassured that they were in good hands. Thanks for everything, Alec! :)
Very nervous leaving my dog with a stranger but I wasn't going to kennel her so I contacted Alec. Very responsive and flexible and seems like a pretty good natured person in general. We will definately use Alec again. Thanks Alec!
Alec & Emily are amazing! I can't say enough good things about them. They take incredible care of out two frenchies, and are totally flexible with our changing schedule.. We will be back!
Our dog is shy and slow to warm up but loved Alec right away. I was relieved to know she was getting exercise along with snuggles and love on the couch while we were apart. Thank you Alex!!!
Alec was great! He was extremely prompt with communication and flexible with drop-off/pick-up times. He also kept me updated with cute photos of my dog during his stay. My dog came home very tired, which means he had fun!
Alec was easy to get in touch with, took Ember on multiple outings the few days she was with him and treated her like his own by letting her sleep in the bed. He would send photo updates when asked how she was doing. I would recommend Alec!
Alec was great, he sent a few pictures of Tug while we were gone and Tug is worn out and happy. Couldn't ask for anything more.
Alec kept in touch and posted pictures of Dexter daily! Dexter had a great time and can't wait to come visit again!
