About Alexandria

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! My name is Alex DeFlorio and I would love to welcome your pets into my home for their own mini-vacation! For your convenience, I have listed out some quick useful facts for you to skim over, if you're short on time. Otherwise, I have written all information I find relevant! If you ever have any questions or need any clarification, please feel free to message me at any time. I look forward to hearing for you and meeting your fur-babies!

Quick Useful Information:
- Every pet that stays with me receives a complimentary bath before pick up.
- Every pet gets to pick out their own special gift to go home with.
- I have successfully cared for over 300 animals in my home.
- I have a large grassy yard that pups love to play in! I also like to set up doggy pools and have swim days with them.
- No pet is ever in my backyard unattended! I go out with them for play time and potty breaks!
- There are two beautiful parks in my neighborhood, both within walking distance.
- I am a full time online student through ASU and do transcription from home, so I am always available to have fun with your pets and to send you cute updates!
- I am a trained through the Arizona Humane Society.
- I am trained to administer vaccinations, administer medication, and treat injuries, if requested.
- I am trained to do light grooming, including nail clippings.


Experience:
I have been a foster parent through the Arizona Humane Society for six years. I have taken in numerous dogs and have experience caring for injured animals, animals who require medication, under-socialized animals, and animals who are too young to be adopted. I worked in a boarding facility, as well, where I fed and exercised up to 30-50 pets per day. In the last few years I began rescuing animals off of euthanasia lists, bringing them into my home, socializing them, and independently finding them new homes. I have also been boarding pets in my home for just under a year.

Why is my home a good fit?
My home is a wonderful fit for your fur-child because it has all of the toys, treats, and love they could ever want! My house is all tile, so you will not have to worry about your pet having accidents. My backyard is fairly large and has a ton of grass for your pet to roll in and play on! My dog, Lorelei, is two years old and is an Australian Cattle dog. She adores having new friends to play with. Beyond all of this, I am currently a full time online student through ASU and I also do transcription work from home, so I am always available and will always be here to keep your pet company.

What would a stay at my house entail?
If your pet were to come stay in my home, we would play fetch, go for walks to parks in my neighborhood, eat yummy (dog friendly) treats, set up shallow dog pools for them to splash around in, and just have a really fun time! I do complimentary bathing for each pet that stays in my house, I can clip nails if requested, I am able to administer vaccinations if needed, and every pet leaves with a special present!

Other information:
Drop off is at 8:00 AM - 7:00 PM
Pick up is 8:00 AM - 7:30 PM

Alexandria was great with my 2 dogs. I would recommend her.
Alexandria was great and extremely friendly! She updated us everyday about Dolce and was extremely flexible with our pick up time when we had unforeseen issues come up! Would definitely leave Dolce with her again :)
We were SO happy with our experience with Alex. We booked a stay for Oliver very last minute on a holiday weekend and she was happy to have him. Drop off and pickup were easy and Oliver was so happy when he was picked up, he even came home with some new toys which he LOVES. The whole process was easy and knowing he was safe made our vacation out of the country easier! We will definitely be booking with Alex again and I would recommend her to anyone! It's easy to tell that she truly LOVES taking care of animals and isn't doing it just for extra money.

I'm new to the area and was leaving town for a work function so my fur baby needed a sitter. Alexandria was fantastic! She kept me updated with pictures, and when my work function was going to run over by an entire day (last minute), Alexandria was able to extend my dogs stay. Her home is nice and well kept. We will be using her for our next trip!

LittleFoot loved her stay with Alexandria! She seemed easy going and relaxed when we got home, came with a bag of goodies and was fluffy and soft to boot. I appreciated the regular updates and would definitely use her again.
I felt very comfortable leaving my Rocky with Alexandria for the weekend and have since taken him back for a couple days of doggie playtime. I will definitely use Alexandria again in the future.
What can I say about Alexandria? Not enough. She is a true GEM!! I knew that my little ones were going to be in good hands after I met with her before my trip. I was immediately comfortable and my mind at ease & my babies were already having a good time just visiting. While she watched over them she would send me pics and info on how they were doing. On top of all of this my flight was delayed in returning home and I was not able to pick them up as originally planned. She was gracious and understanding and let them stay another night. When I picked them up they were excited to see me but not frantic. While I missed them when I was gone I never worried about them. I knew they were in great hands & they were. Thank you Alexandria!!!.

Alex really loves animals and it shows. She is very tender and kind to my Toby who is a rescue dog. I feel very comfortable leaving him in her care when I have to travel.
I highly recommend Alexandria to take care of your dog. It is obvious that she loves dogs. Her house is set up to take care of dogs and be dog friendly. Cinnamon, my dog, has always just been with my wife and me and is not comfortable around other dogs or unknown people. But Alexandria got her to adjust to other dogs and be happy in her new set-up. Alexandria sent me regular updates and pictures. I highly recommend her and would take Cinnamon there again if I am out of town.

We couldn't have asked for a better pet sitter.I left a longer review on his last stay dates as I had to extend the stay and Alexandria couldn't have been more accommodating.Dont hesitate one second book with her.
Alexandria actually had our Labradoodle for almost 2 months while we traveled for Business. She took such great care of him! I would recommend her to any fur baby owner.She sent texts, pictures and videos so I could keep up with Abe's daily activities .I didn't worry and was very comfortable knowing he was so well cared for.When I arrived to pick him up he was groomed and bathed and happy! Abe shows absolutely no signs of stress from being away from us for as long as he was.Couldnt be happier and I wouldn't hesitate to ask for her to keep him again.

Alexandria was great in fact, Daisy, our golden retriever didn't want to come home! We were kept informed with pictures during our vacation and never worried about our girl.Thanks Alexandria for your love and care for our pet. I'm sure Daisy will choose you again soon!

Alex was a great pet care giver and turnaround text messages were awesome! Will go back for sure.
Alexandria was wonderful. I have never left my dog with anyone and she eased my fears and took excellent care of my baby. I will definitely use Alexandria every time I have to leave my baby.
Alex cared for our 2 dogs for a week while we were out of the country.

We couldn't be happier with Alex!! We are so pleased to have found Alex through this service and definitely plan on this being a long term relationship!! She was so good to our dogs, they felt completely at home with her.
We looked for the right dog sitter for some time before meeting Alex. She stood out because of her credentials but once we met her in person, we saw so much more. She was so warm and welcoming. She had a gentle and loving spirit that the dogs picked up on right away. She had lots of energy for them and just made us feel great about leaving them in her care. Our black lab had an instant connection to her. And our little beagle warmed up fast. We received regular updates from her, and she gave the best care,... even gave them a bath before they came home. (We didn't even ask for that. It was a pleasant surprise.) Needless to say, I think we found our home away from home for our babies! Thank you Alex for all that you do!

I'm very happy with my experience with Alex! She sent me daily updates and pics too! Benny got sick while he was there and she showed concern and kept me well informed on how he was doing. I highly recommend Alex to anyone who is looking for a pet-sitter!

Alexandria was amazing with my pup Louis! She went the extra mile, being very understanding and I would definitely use her again in the future! Thank you Alexandria! :)
Alexandria was so awesome! I had a very last-minute need for some doggie daycare and Alexandria got back to me within the hour. She was extremely flexible and made it so easy for me to work around. Max had a great two days there and we'll definitely be back for some more fun times!

both of our dogs had a blast! we got pictures everyday and they had so much fun! we would recommend her to anyone and will be bringing our dogs back to her for sure!
Alex was so quick in response and was last minute! She was amazing with my boy! He loved her and she sent updates and pics to show me how he was doing. He will defently go back to her in the future!
The weekend my Lola spent with Alexandria went seamlessly, would definitely board with her again :^)
Alexandria was more than a perfect host for our pup Luna. She helped make our time away from her reassuring and pleasing. We got stuck on the way back but she was very forgiving & was able to work with us. Luna was even returned with a gift! More than met our expectations and we would certainly book her again! Superb sitter (:

We needed to go on a trip and the friends that care our dogs werent available. Alexandria was quick to respond and accept my request even I was new on dogvacay and didnt have all my dogs information completed. She welcomed my dogs with kindly courtesy and always a smile she kept me informed of them during the trip. I'm very pleased with DogVacay and Alexandria help.
