About Alex

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My wife and I live in a home in Newberg near the cross streets of College and Mountainview. I work from home and am usually around all day. I have been a dog owner my whole life and have been watching other dogs for about 2 years, with 100% positive feedback. We have a nice back yard for your dog to play in. Our neighborhood is very friendly with a park and great walking trails. Our dog Reggie is a Rhodesian Ridgeback and is very friendly to all breeds.

This was the first time I've ever left my dog with a stranger. Alex was great!
This was Wilsons's second visit to Alex's home and like the first, he was very happy and well taken care of while there. We will definitely continue to use Alex for wilson's doggy daycare needs as availability allows.
Working with Alex was great! He was very quick to reply to all messages. He sent us daily pictures while our dog Ramsey was with him. Ramsey loved being at his place and came back super tired, which meant he had lots of fun with Reggie and the other pups. We would definitely send Ramsey back!
We left our two year old golden retriever Checkers with Alex and Reggie for a week during our Christmas vacation. Alex gave us quick daily updates on Checkers with photos. Knowing Checkers was doing well really helped us enjoy our vacation. Checkers was quite happy when we went to Alex's house to pick him up. This was the first time we used a doggysitter. We used to take Checkers to a boarding school. He was more nervous when we picked him up at boarding school. So Alex did a better job and we are happy with his service.

Reggie is a very nice residence dog. Checkers is also very friendly. But when he first met Reggie at the backyard of Alex's house, Checkers was barking aggressively at Reggie maybe he was nervous. Reggie was very kind and hiding behind my daughter. I did not know what to do next. Alex was very relaxed and asked me to get Checkers off the leash. Checkers started running and Reggie was running after him. Checkers also played one of Reggie's toys and Reggie was totally ok. So they seemed to get along and we were relieved. We definitely will use Alex's service again!
I've had Alex and his wife watch Zoee several times now and she always has a great time and is well taken care of. She just loves their dog Reggie. When I drop her off she runs straight in to see Reggie and doesn't look back, so I know she's very happy there. I highly recommend them!
Amazing dog sitter. Their house and backyard is beyond beautiful and is a safe and dog friendly environment. The dog they have, Reggie, is beautiful and very friendly as well. Jackson (my dog) is always full of energy, but after I picked him up he was tired for TWO days, which means he received an abundant amount of exercise and play. It's wonderful to have a dog sitter you can feel at ease while your away, receive updates, and know everything is okay without the accompanied anxiety I usually have when I leave my pet. Jackson not only had a sitter but I think he had quite a lot of fun, maybe too much fun; essentially the best "dog vacation" Jackson has ever had.

They took well care of my lover/baby, Jackson, and I recommend them to everyone. One of the best dog sitters I have had so far (and I have had many). I highly recommend them to anyone and will be going back to them again.

Thanks again Alex (and wife) !
Alex and his wife were great. Zoey seemed to really have had a good time at their home. I loved all the pictures and details of her day we received. We are looking forward to our next trip and Zoey is looking forward to her DogVacay with Alex!
We were in town and decided to catch a spring training game...only problem was, we were traveling with Sarge, our furry son, and he is not welcome into the ballpark :-/ Sarge is 80 pounds of lab puppy brain, and having never left him at a doggie daycare before, we were pretty nervous. Alex and Reggie were just what Sarge (and we) needed...during the game, I received a text message and pictures from Alex, putting my mind at ease that all was well. I highly recommend Alex and will definitely use DogVacay in the future when we travel.
I left my lab puppy with Alex for a week and he had a blast! Alex sent daily updates and photos of Max playing with Reggie - he was happy and worn out upon returning home. Alex was extremely accommodating and made Max's first time away from home worry-free.
I'm so glad we found Alex! This was our first time leaving our dog with a host family and I was a bit nervous... but Alex was fantastic to work with! His schedule was very flexible and our nerves were calmed knowing our pup would be in good hands. We received text messages and picture updates every other day and our dog looked very happy in every single one. Upon our return home, our pup was tired and moping around for a day or two - a sure sign that he had his fair share of playtime and misses Alex, the yard, and Alex's sweet dog Reggie.
Thank you Alex!! We look forward to Steve's next vacation with you! :)
Alex did a wonderful job with my 3 dogs! Received status update and photos daily just as promised. They were definitely pooped when they got home. That you so much for keeping them. I would use him again.
Alex was great!

I had two of my dogs visit Alex regularly for almost an entire day every week, he accommodated my hours very well.

My dogs both would bolt into his house without looking back once, so that's definitely a good sign. They would come back tired and happy.

He sent me updates of my dogs playing in his yard, and was able to keep a close eye on my bichon Yogi's allergies and indoor marking.

Thanks man!
I had one happy dog on hand when I returned from my trip. Alex was incredibly easy to work with and sent pictures throughout Zoee's stay there. She had a great time with Reggie all week, a lot of play time and cuddling. I wouldn't hesitate to have them watch Zoee again.
Alex and his dog Reggie were amazing hosts for my dog Turk. He was very accommodating. Alex was completely understanding when my flight home was delayed. He even offered to watch Turk for an extra night. We will absolutely be using Alex again.
Alex is great! He has great flexibility and availability and responds very promptly to messages. We've had Minnie stay with Alex (and Reggie) twice, and she comes home tired and pretty happy. Alex is also great in taking instructions if your dog needs any special care, and sends pictures every day to let you know your pup is okay. Will keep sending our doggie back!
He did such a good job with my over energetic dog Mya (lab mix). I was glad she had another dog bigger than her to play with. She was all tuckered out when I brought her home.
We consistently use Alex and his wife for our vacation dog sitter! Our Doberman LOVES going to play with their super sweet Rhodesian ridgeback and even is a bit sad to come home because he has so much fun! Alex is always so accommodating and makes us leaving our boy so much easier. Highly recommend him!
Alex takes wonderful care of my pups!
Boomer enjoyed his stay with Reggie and friends. He's feeling at home with Alex. Great job!
First time with Alex. Boomer did well and enjoyed time with Reggie.
Sadie had a good stay and was well taken care of.
My husband & I felt extremely comfortable with Alex K. & his wife after the meet & greet. Their rather large, but loveable Reggie, set our minds at ease that our small pug mix would be just fine. Alex K. and his lovely wife took such great care of my 17 month old puggle, Honey, for 3 nights. I received pictures & text updates on how she was doing. They provided a safe & loving environment. I would highly recommend Alex to take care of your pet.
After the meet and greet with Alex I felt very comfortable leaving my dog, Bella, with him. I will definitely be using Alex's DogVacay services again. Thanks Alex!
If you live in the metropolitan area and aren't having your dog stay with Alex and his lovely wife, you are missing out on an amazing experience. I have a six month old puppy that has an assuming amount of energy (as puppies do), and they took such great care of her. They have a lovely dog that acts much like a puppy, and they got along wonderfully. I received text and picture updates throughout her stay and felt very comfortable being away from her for the first time. I will definitely be using them again!
I felt like Molly was in good hands at Alex's home while I was out of town. I received pictures and status updates on how she was doing every day of her dog vacay. I will use Alex again next time I need a dog sitter!
I recently left my dog Daisy with Alex for two weeks. I was very apprehensive as she is a high-energy terrier not used to being away from her family. She and Reggie had a great time playing, and I know Alex did his best to make her comfortable and more at ease. It was such a relief to go on vacation and not have to worry about her well-being! I certainly won't hesitate to reunite Daisy and Reggie if need be!
My dog titan had a GREAT time staying with Alex and his sweet dog Reggie. I felt that he was in very good hands and appreciated daily updates and photos of my boy while I was away. Alex made me feel very at ease about leaving titan which made for a much more enjoyable vacation. I would be happy to have titan go stay with Alex again in the future!
I left my pup with Alex for a few days when I went out of town. He did a great job looking after him and provided updates along the way. I highly recommend Alex and will be returning myself next time I am out of town.
My Dldogs are a handful and Alex did an amazing job!
Mel had a great time over at Alex's place. I was sent pictures via text, and I didn't ask or expect it, but from one of the pictures, Mel was even taken for walks! Reggie's a fun dog, and it looks like Mel got along nicely with him. Knowing that there's always somewhere there gave me a lot of peace of mind. Highly recommended.
This was Oscar's first time experiencing a doggy daycare. Alex was a great host and he kept us in check with Oscar by sending us photos as well as updating us on his overall well-being. It was noted that Oscar also gained a new friend , Reggie, Alex's dog. By the time of the pick up, Oscar looked like he wanted to stay and play. All in all, I am very pleased with how everything turned out and I highly recommend Alex's services. If I ever need a to find a place for Oscar to stay, I would book it with Alex again.
Phil did his first day of doggie day care with Alex and Reggie yesterday and had a great day! The hosts are great and you can tell they go out of their way to make the dogs comfortable and enjoy their vacay. Phil will be back for another day soon!
I am so happy to have found Alex! Besides being so convenient to work, my dog loves playing with Alex's dog and I love the pictures that I get of them playing together during the day. Boomer is so excited when we drive up and passes out on the way home!! I will continue to bring Boomer as long as Alex will have us!!
My dog, Phil, recently had an awesome dogvacay with Alex, his wife, and Reggie (their dog)!! This was my first experience using this service and I would highly recommend it. The hosts were very friendly and sent me pictures throughout the stay to keep me updated on how Phil was doing. When I went to pick him up from his stay they went over details and also what they did to keep him at ease during the stay (he has a little bit of anxiety). They were great hosts and Phil had a wonderful vacation!
