About Alex

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Sorry I am out of the country for work and vacation till November 21st. My services will resume on November 22nd.

Hi, I'm Alex. I work from home and have ample space in my work space/loft (2000 sq ft) for your doggies to roam around. I also have plenty of experience dog sitting many of my friend's dogs on a regular basis.

The best part? Your doggies won't be bored in the company of my giant Pomeranian, Pandora. (Pandora allows all/any dogs to play with all of her toys!) And since I am home all day too, your doggies will also have plenty of human interaction/company.

Pandora is on a 4x a day walk schedule so your doggies will get plenty of exercise and time outside.

Alex was a fantastic host for Mocho. His place is spacious and clean. He kept me updated with lots of photos and notes about the vacay. I felt really comfortable knowing that my little guy was in good hands while I was out of town and I'd happily leave him with Alex again!

Alex was a very hospitable host (my dog told me so). He took care of my pup and sent me updates on a regular basis (with commentary). Alex has a large loft with dog beds all over; a great place for dogs to roam (and even jump on the furniture). I would definitely leave my little guy with him again.

Alex, you couldn't have been more perfect! And many thanks for recommending the Stella & Chewey's! Arabella loves it, just as you said. Much appreciation for all. --Elyse
Great, wide-open space where my dog could do his own thing, yet stay comfortably close to Alex throughout the day. Thanks, Alex!
Alex is awesome and easy to work with. My pup Simba enjoyed staying with Alex in a daycare, as well as boarding. We will definitely come back again.
ALex and his dog Pandora are just so adorable . This is the first time I had to leave my 6 year old Maltese, curry , with someone other than my husband and girlfriend so I am having some separation anxiety. Meeting Alex and Pandora put my heart at ease immediately. They are both very friendly and laid back and Curry loves hanging out with them. He took great care of her and sends me pics during my trip of curry having fun. Thanks! He is also extremely easy with fixing time to pick up and drop her off and of course, his neighborhood and place are both so cool. Highly recommend!

I don't know what Alex did but our 7 month old Frenchie came back to us calmer and better trained after she boarded with Alex for 6 days!

Alex was very attentive particularly to those new to boarding their doggies. The first night Nara boarded Alex continuously updated us on her condition, to the degree he updated several times within the hour to let us know if she was eating (since we were worried about her having separation anxiety and not eating).

We received regular updates of videos and/or pictures. Pandora, Alex's doggie is a sweet little bear and although our puppy, Nara, was instigating for the first couple of days Pandora ended up warming up to our mischievous puppy.

We would definitely put Alex on our priority list as a sitter if he's ever available when we need him!
Thanks Alex, we don't know what magic you worked but you certainly returned to us a calmer, more well trained puppy! Highly recommended!

Thank you!

Alex was an amazing host to my dog Wolfie. He sent multiple photos and updates of my dog Wolfie throughout the day and was oh so patient about my dog's quirks. I felt total confidence in Alex's ability to watch over my furbaby and we will definitelyh be repeat guests if he would have us again!

Alex is a great communicator. He sent me photos constantly to make sure I know what's going on with Vee while I was away. I'll ask him again to be a host in the future.
Alex was amazing! It was my first time ever boarding my puppy so I was very stressed with the idea of leaving her. However since the very first moment Alex made me feel that I was leaving her in good hands. Besides being a very nice person, he kept me well informed of how she was doing all the time. He sent me pictures. He was easy to contact whenever I had a question and he perfectly followed all of the instructions regarding my puppy's routine, which was very important to me since I'm still training her. I would definitely recommend Alex without hesitation!

From the second I arrived, I felt comfortable leaving Aly with Alex. He has other dogs that Aly got along with really well, he was super friendly and genuine.
Over the weekend Alex sent me multiple updates every day of Alaska playing, sleeping and letting me know how she was settling in after I left, always really quick to respond too.
He was great and I definitely feel comfortable leaving my pup with him any time.

Highly recommend.

Alex was an amazing dogsitter! He kept me constantly informed and sent tons of pictures and even a video! I would recommend him to anyone and would definitely ask him to vacay my dog again. :)

Alex took great care of our dog over a very hot summer weekend in the city. His place in soho is spacious and comfortable and had a bunch of dogs all happily scrambling around. He regularly sent photo and text updates to keep us in the loop with how our pup was doing, and was very flexible with our timing—which, with the summer traffic, we really appreciated! We would recommend him highly.

Alex is as good as it gets. I was the first person that did day boarding with him while I worked. His space is large and extremely convenient to get to. Pandora his dog was very friendly and Buddy my dog seemed to get along with Pandora immediately. During the day Alex took photos and updated me on Buddy. By the end of the day Buddy was pooped. He went on a couple walks with him and Pandora. I hope to make the day boarding a recurring thing with Alex.

Sam had a great time at Alex place and he looked very well taken care off when I picked him up earlier in his spacious apartment. Alex was very quick to respond and flexible in accommodating our schedule. He sent daily photos and videos. Sam got along well with his dog. I can definitely recommend Alex!

Alex took very good care of my little princess. He sent me many pics. He is very easy going and flexible with meeting time. He has a great space where she can run around. I was very happy I found him to take care of my precious puppy.
Kota fell in love with Alex and his dog Pandora after the first visit. I received updates throughout my trip to ensure that my fur baby was doing okay. I highly recommend your dog to stay with Alex and Pandora.
Alex was amazing! He kept me updated and sent me pictures of my dog Huchoo regularly. I really liked the fact that he was very specific about her everyday behavior during the whole time. I could tell Huchoo was getting comfortable at his place and having a good time. Will definitely book him again.

My Dog Sam was well cared for by Alex!
Upon my arrival Alex took close notes for Sam's Feeding and Walking Schedules.
There was plenty of room at his place for Sam to run around and play.
Alex provided multiple texts and photos during the day to give me Sam updates!

Thanks Alex for a great stay!

Boarding Ollie with Alex couldn't have gone better. Alex was super easy to work with and was very responsive both before we booked, and while Ollie was with him. The space here is great, offering a lot of direct sunlight, which our little guy loved. His dog, Pandora, is a sweetheart too. I would recommend Alex in a heartbeat and will use his services again if and when needed.

Thanks!
