About Alexandra

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! I'm Alex!

I have been caring for animals for over 10 years now. I specialize in caring for large and extra large dogs, but open to all sizes. I live in an one bedroom apartment located in Hoboken at Fourth and Monroe with a private access, fully enclosed, large yard. I am also located a few blocks from one of the largest dog parks in Hoboken.

Obviously, everyone on here loves animals. As much as I love them, I hold caring for them to a higher standard than most. Even if a pet is not part of my family, they are treated as one.

PLEASE READ: I am available during the weekends, Friday afternoon through Sunday night, for daycare and boarding. It is highly preferred that your dog can be left alone for 2-4 hours (in or out of a crate) once a day. However, I can be flexible to help with senior dogs, puppies, or those that are sick or healing from surgery. Additionally, please pet me know if you pet is not neutered or spayed.


Please feel free to message me with any questions!
Thanks!

Alex is a long-time dog lover and a good person. I would trust her to care for my dog and I know she takes the welfare of all dogs very seriously. I recommend her dog walking services.

Alex would make a wonderful sitter for anyone's dog. She thinks of them as children and makes sure they get the best of everything. Her love for dogs will make you feel very comfortable that you dog is being well taken care of. She is extremely responsible and would treat your dog as her own.

Alex is the most considerate person I know when it comes to dogs. She is incredibly trustworthy, hardworking, fun, warm, and an absolute delight to be around. Her love and affection for everybody's favorite four-legged friend is apparent within seconds of seeing her interact with any dog, of any breed or size. I've known Alex for a long time and I can honestly say nothing makes her light up more than dogs: playing with them, taking one for a walk, or spending time with dogs in her home. I have watched her with animals firsthand and would trust any creature - especially dogs - with Alex; I know they would be treated like her own and well looked after. I cannot recommend her services highly enough.

Alexandra made using dog vacay such a great experience for us. She was extremely communicative before the trip and was very accommodating when we said we were looking for a sitter for our cat, not dog. She offered to come and meet him at our said we were looking for a sitter for our cat, not dog. She offered to come and meet him at our apartment to make him more comfortable and she let us know exactly what she would need to make the stay at her house as smooth as possible.

While we were gone she sent us pictures every day which made our first time away from our cat much easier for us. It was clear that she went above and beyond to make him extremely comfortable at her home, and he was a very happy cat when we came to pick him up. She even completely cleaned out the litter box and his dishes for us before we arrived

This was our first time using dog vacay and Alexandra made it a wonderful experience for us. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a warm and welcoming sitter!

1. Great communication and flexibility: Alexandra was very flexible on the drop-off and pick-up times and quick in her communication and flexibility: Alexandra was very flexible on the drop-off and pick-up times and quick in her responses.
2. Alexandra sent us some pictures despite the stay being only a couple of days.
3. She gave a good report out on Bruno- e.g. what training we could work on. Appreciate the feedback!
4. Lastly, when I picked up Bruno, he looked very happy compared to a stay at a corporate pet hotel!
He was looked after really well!
