About Alejandra

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Need to go out of town for the day on business? Have an exciting week long vacation planned? Just need to get out of town for the weekend but your dog sadly can't come? No worries! I'm here for you!

I currently do not own a dog since my last dog passed away before me moving into Houston. Her name was Princess and was a Chow Chow Mix.
What I enjoy the most about watching dogs is to see their different personalities and behaviors.

I am currently living at The Gael apartments in Houston, TX. The complex includes an area were dogs can play, and Buffalo Bayou Park is 10 minutes from here.

PLEASE NOTE: As much as I want to win the lotto I do have a full time job and can't be home 24/7. Your furry pals will get all the love and attention primarily in the evenings, holidays, and weekends. I do have a mandatory CRATE policy. It is required to provide a crate when dropping off your pup for their stay. Keep in mind, this is a case by case situation and a crate is rarely used, BUT I like to have one around just for peace of mind for both parties. Depending on the dog, this policy may be enforced as a safety precaution for my property and the safety of the dog since some like to explore and get into things, From experience most doggies love to rest/sleep in their crates believing that's their "safety box" especially in an unfamiliar home. If you are aware that your pooch sometimes displays signs of separation anxiety, please disclose this information during the Meet N Greet.

Also, I do have some breed restrictions I CANNOT budge on. This is the leasing office policy, not mine. I have them listed in my profile. Little critters such as hamsters, guinea pigs, turtles, and/or birds are welcomed! If this sounds like a good fit please don't hesitate and send me a message. I look forward to meeting you!!

Alejandra was very friendly and accommodating when it came to scheduling our "meet and greet" and drop off and pick up times. My dog also seemed to like her right off the bat. However, there was an incident one night where my dog was left alone in Alejandra's apartment for several hours. When she returned she found that my dog had made a mess of her apartment (knocking over the trash, pulling things off of shelves, etc) and had done some damage to a few of her and her roommate's things. I agreed to pay for their damaged property, but I believe Alejandra is partially to blame. First of all, this very out of character for my dog as she has never done anything like this at my apartment, when left home alone. Second, she left my dog alone for an extended amount of time at a late hour (she texted me pictures of the mess at 2:30 AM). The most troubling thing was that there were some toxic materials left in a box on the floor, which my dog could have gotten into (thankfully she didn't).

In short, Alejandra is friendly, loves dogs, and is generally an OK dog sitter, but she made a few irresponsible decisions in my opinion.

Alejandra did a wonderful job caring for our dog Pablo. she sent photos each time she cared for him so we knew he was getting fed and walked on his regular routine. I would recommend Alejandra for anyone looking for a sitter!
Alejandra was very sweet and took good care of my pup. We met for a quick meet and greet and she watched my dog for one night. Drop off and pick up were easy.
