About Alex

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello, my name is Alex and I am a nurse. My fiancé and I have gone out of town so many times over the past year and have been in tough situations trying to find care for our dogs. They have separation anxiety so finding someone who keeps their word and keeps a close eye on them is an essential factor. I did a little bit of research and found this service and thought wow, I should offer that service since my job is so flexible and I adore animals! So here I am!!! Ready to watch your animal, including any special requests and love!!! My fiancé and I adore dogs and have fostered animals before. We are big into fitness and nature so exploring, long hikes, and plenty of exercise is always in store. I also have a few secret Austin spots to hike in privacy :) Although, if your dog has special needs such as, short-nosed dogs, senior dogs, post surgery, raw diet, etc. I have absolutely no issues altering to you AND their needs :) There is no task I can't do! My sole purpose is to love your animal as my own and meet every request you have! :)

Alex was phenomenal. Everything from coming to pick up Louie to frequently communicating with us while we were away (picture updates are the best!) to all the hikes she took Louie on, he was such a happy camper and so were we. We definitely would request Alex again and highly recommend her as someone you can rest assured-- your pet is in great hands!
Alex was exceptional! My husband and I moved to Austin right before the holidays and we decided on a last minute trip for New Years. We're so thankful we found Alex! She replied to our request immediately and I'm so happy she was available because our dog had a blast :)
It's a huge piece of mind to know that we have found someone we want to leave our dog with anytime we go out of town from now on.
She sent pictures from their hikes all the time and I could clearly see how my dog enjoyed his time in her company. Her dogs are amazing also! Our dog hadn't had much time with other dogs in a while and I'm so happy he got to play with her boxers.
We could tell that she cares and was really considerate about asking all the pertinent info about our dog. 100% recommend. She even added in a bonus doggie bath and drop off at our apartment :)
Alex is awesome! Our dogs were happy to see her again, and we were happy to know they were in great hands! Thanks so much!
Wow. Completely blew away my expectations. Three days before Xmas, my wife and I changed plans with our puppy, Ella. Alex was incredibly responsive and understanding for a first time parent leaving their little one. Due to the holiday, we were unable to do a meet and greet so I had to blindly trust Alex. She was extremely respectful of that and passed along other owners for references. While we were gone Alex stayed in constant contact and sent multiple pictures/videos.

Alex was fantastic and will be taking care of Ella next time we leave town!!
We love Alex and her fiance, Matt! They took amazing care of our fur-baby, Hazy!

It was so hard for us to leave our Hazy over the holidays and we almost didn't end up traveling. It was so comforting to receive updates & videos of Hazy having the time of her life while with Alex and all the other dogs. We can't thank them enough and will surly be using them for pet sitting here on out!
I can't say enough on here. Alex took my puppy in over a holiday weekend knowing he was sick going into it. She cared for him as if he was her own and kept me updated constantly. When things got worse she took time away from her family on Christmas Day and rushed him to the vet. She never complained once and only was worried about my puppy. She is the BEST!!!
Alex is wonderful! She knows a ton about dogs and loved my Lily as if she were her own. Lily got to go on hikes and was so worn out and happy when she got home! Alex even gave her a bath. I already have Alex booked again for this weekend and am SO SO happy to have found a loving home away from home for Lily! I highly recommend her!
She's the best!
Alex was an amazing pet sitter who was energetic, warm and caring towards our dogs and very accommodating to our needs. Her home is a very good venue for our dogs, with a fenced back yard and access to all parts of the house. We will definitely book her services again.
Alex was able to watch my 2 large pups (sorta last min) and I couldn't have been happier with how much fun they seemed to have with her. We came from out of town and I was not able to meet Alex first, so we were a little nervous. Now, I wish Alex lived closer so that she could watch the pups all the time. They went for hikes and had so much play time. She was very accommodating and her home was the perfect size for watching pups and allowing them to have plenty of room! I would highly recommend her to anyone!! :)
Alex is very professional and trustworthy. She gave me regular updates about my dog and made sure to keep him on his schedule. I would highly recommend her.
Highly recommend Alex! She is a dream to work with in scheduling and details, and more importantly, she gives so much love to our pup. In fact, I'm pretty sure Charlotte would have preferred to stay with her instead of coming home!! I got updates during her stay and never worried about how she was doing. I have already booked Charlotte's next stay with Alex and know she will be taken care of very well and loved on endlessly!
