About Carlos

13 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Big home with patio. Very close to Bernal Hill, Holly Park and McLaren Park. Daily walks to these parks are a must. Sunrise and sunsets that dogs love. At night my house becomes a pijama party for dogs. With dog beds and couches everywhere, they can pick and choose their spot. If you need an enclosed environment I have a couple of plastic kennels.

The best host at communication! Loved seeing Daisy's pictures while I was away. She was always so exhausted at the end of each day due to all the adventures! Would happily book again.
Our dog Frances had a great time staying with Carlos and Alejandra! They sent me daily photo updates of their adventures at nearby parks, and Frances came home tired and happy. The booking was easy, and the hosts were very kind. I will definitely book again!

Hamlet came home from his stay with Carlos and Alejandra much as I come home from a great vacation, tired and in need of a vacation :). I could not have been more pleased with the experience and am so happy to have found a home that I have full confidence in leaving my wonderful doggy.

Our pup always receives the best care from Alejandra and Carlos!
Alejandra and Carlos are outstanding hosts. Our dog has stayed with them a few times and he awesome comes back super happy! They are active and send great photos of doggie outings. They are also communicative kind and flexible.
Troy's second stay with Alejandra and Carlos was for 3 weeks. We received photos every day of him out having wonderful adventures - some of them with friends he made last time! He was obviously well loved and cared for, and came home calm and tired from all the fun. I think he actually misses them between visits. Thank you!

6 stars... alejandra was amazing; the pictures were wonderful. our dog went on many amazing adventures, and came home very happy (yet very tired) :) alejandra & carlos are absolutely the best.
I can’t believe we haven’t written a review yet! We have used Alejandra and Carlos almost 10 times and they are amazing. My only hesitation with giving them a great review is that they will always be booked and I would hate for Truckee to stay with anyone else. They have a young daughter and we love that Truckee gets to be around a child, since he isn’t very often. They also have two labs of their own and usually watch other dogs, or at least have dogs that they walk, which is great for Truckee. They go big hikes in the city and around the bay and we always get lots of great picture. They also are extremely accommodating with our crazy schedules. Truckee is a high-energy dog, but every time he comes home he is tired so we know he has been well exercised! Seriously the best hosts and we couldn’t ask for more!

With this being our first time away from our 2 year old Shepherd /Malinois, Angel, Alejandra was great! She updated us with more than 40 photos of their outingl. When we returned to pick our girl up, their Shepard and our Angel had become good friends already! We felt she was very well cared for! I'll not hesitate to use them again!

Alejandra and Carlos are wonderful hosts. Nico always has a terrific time.
Alejandra and Carlos were great hosts! Over 3 days, they sent tons of pictures and took our pugs out on nice long walks. They were welcoming, very easy going, and very easy to work with. Although I ran late in picking them up, Alejandra made it very easy and was very understanding. She even sent them home with Christmas cookies! I would highly recommend them and will be using them again in the future.

Alejandra & Carlos are are terrific. Nico had a great time. Carlos updated us with pictures from their adventures. Nico looks forward to coming back again soon.
We had a very positive experience and our expectations were exceeded. All my messages were promptly answered, and I loved the photos and personal updates. I never had to wonder how my dogs were doing. They were playing at the park and sleeping on big comfy doggie beds, and they came home happy and tired. It was truly a vacation for them too this time!

I was recently in a wedding and there was so much to do and very stressful but Alejandra made my life so much easier. Just knowing Lola was in such capable hands- I was able to focus on the big day. I loved receiving all the photos showing Lola felt like she was at home.
I will definitely be bringing Lola back for another visit.

I feel like our dog has a second home when she is with Alejandra and Carlos. It's a great feeling. thanks again!
Alejandra and Carlos are super awesome. This is the 2nd time my dog Charmin stayed at their place. My dog had so much fun walking and playing with other dogs. Will definitely use them going forward.
Alejandra and Carlos were great hosts! Jaxy had a great time and I loved all of the pictures that were sent to me. I will definitely be using them in the future
A blast was had! My dog always comes back exhausted and happy which makes me even happier! I would seriously be lost without Alejandra and Carlos!
Roni as always came back happy and tired from all of his adventures with his doggy friends :) That always makes me even happier!
Alejandra and Carlos = the BEST.
Roni had a blast while his mommies were in Reno! I never worry when he is with Alejandra and Carlos - they are so caring and great with dogs. I am super protective of my dog (borderline crazy) and I never ever have butterflies in my stomach when I leave him at their home. They are so great! Look no further for your pup's daycare!

I would be lost with Alejandra and Carlos! They are the absolute best! I never worry about my beloved pup whenever we leave him at their home. this visit was the longest one yet as my wife and I were getting married and going on a mini-honeymoon. I was able to relax and enjoy myself as I knew Roni was in good hands and having the time of his life! Thank you both so much for being YOU!

As always, Alejandra and Carlos took amazing care of Lilly. They are our first choice when going on a trip- second choice is leaving her with family.
Everything was great. Received photos daily. House was set up very nicely for a great dog experience.
Alejandra and Carlos took great care of our dog. There was a great pack of friends for her to play with and plenty of activities and play every day. We received regular updates (with pictures!) and felt very comfortable and confident in knowing A&C were taking good care of our pup.

Alejandra and Carlos are truly the best! From taking our Whippet out daily for exercise, fun and fresh air to sending us the most fabulous photos ever of our dog's day; from keeping their lovely home so fresh and clean to showering our dog with pets, kisses and love - every time we send our Whippet to stay here, she comes back so happy, refreshed and so unbelievably friendly with other dogs and kids!! Thank you both so much for all you do to spoil "Goo"!!

I can't say enough positive things about our dog staying with Carlos and Alejandra. They are dog lovers and professionals. It was really comforting to receive pictures of our dog while we were away. They are truly wonderful hosts.
Alejandra is a dog whisperer! Our dog, Miso, is a high energy dog but was also a little bit nervous going somewhere new. Alejandra’s experience and love for dog was immediately apparent, her calm demeanor and way she interacted with Miso really helped make him feel welcome. Every day she sent pictures of Miso having fun during their daily trips to the park. Also Alejandra was great at communicating before and during his stay, she responded within the hour (or sooner) to all texts and messages. When we picked Miso up he seemed sad to leave his new friends. We will definitely be using Alejandra in the future.

Steiner absolutely LOVED her vacay with Alejandra and Carlos, as did I! They sent me tons of pictures each day of her playing as well as being completely passed out at night (not an easy feat!!). I will be dropping her back off next week and am so happy to have found such a great family to watch her.

I can't say enough about Alejandra and Carlos - they are the only people I trust with my beloved dog Roni. They are so reliable, loving, and great people. My dog is always happy and tired when he comes home from his adventures with Alejandra and Carlos. do not look any further - book your next dogvacay with these two lovely people!

Carlos is AWESOME! Dog lover and just a great guy. It was our first time using Dog Vacay but since we met Carlos we have booked again and will be booking again and again. He treats your dog as he would treat his own and we have a big shy rottweiler. He is flexible on days and times. Our dog, Kona loves going over there and she comes home exhausted as Carlos gives so much attention to the dogs and takes them to parks and beaches and the best part we get multiple pics while we are away. Thank you to Carlos and your family for taking such good care of Kona when we are not able to.

Alejandra and Carlos are the BEST. I needed last minute day care for my pup yesterday and they were so accommodating and helpful and were able to not only take care of my dog, they picked him up and dropped him off - this extra that they offer is priceless and saved me yesterday. My dog had a blast and came home tired and happy. THANK YOU! and he will be back for an overnight stay this Sunday :)

We are extremely impressed with Alejandra and Carlos. Our pup had an awesome time. They sent photos of daily outing and they were available for any and all questions. We are new to San Francisco and it has been very comforting to know our dog was in such a dog-friendly place while we were away. So grateful for their services.

Monster had another great day with Alejandra and the pack. We love the location and it's a perfect place for our dog. thanks Rahul
Alejandra is amazing, caring, loving and truly cares about dogs. She is super responsive over text messages, email and the mobile app.

I feel so lucky to have met Alejandra and would highly recommend. This is her calling and not a job. You can see/feel it.

Thank you Alejandra !

Yet another fabulous few nights of "hosting" our Whippet via Alejandra and Carlos!! We truly cannot recommend this couple enough for the care & love of one's dog!! The countless fabulous photos, the amazing outings they take the dogs on, the warmth and love they radiate towards you, the client, and the dog they take in...! Thank you so much you two!! See you again soon!!

Alejandra and Carlos took very good care of Charlie- they sent many photos of her outings and of Charlie playing with their daughter- She came home tired and content-
This was our dog's second stay with Alejandra and Carlos and for a second time we couldn't have been happier. Everyday we received numerous pictures or our dog Lilly out on outings, walking, playing, swimming and some just relaxing with the family.
Our only worry is whether she will want to come home :)

We couldn't have been more pleased with Alejandra. Moss was immediately comfortable with Alejandra during the meet-n-greet. Alejandra looked after Moss for several days while my family traveled abroad and sent us several pictures of Moss everyday. She took him to various parks and he had a lot of fun with other dogs. We definitely plan to book Alejandra (and Carlos) again!

It took a while to find the perfect match for our Leo, but we finally did with Alejandra and Carlos. I can't recommend them highly enough. Leo seemed to have so much fun romping around all of the parks Alejandra brought him to. I received so many wonderful pictures of their escapades. Leo's found his new second home :)

This is my first experience using Dog Vacay. I have to say that I was very impressed with Alejandra and the manner in which she took very good care of my Yorkie, Cupcake. Her home is spotless and dog friendly. I immediately felt at home and I know my dog did too.
I got a big kick when she sent photos of Cupcake in various outdoor settings. The dogs all seemed to enjoy each others company. It was comforting to know my little one was in good hands. I will definitely use the services of Alejandra and Carlos in the future.

Alejandra was so sweet!! I found out at 9:30 that I needed a pet-sitter for the day and had 2 hours to find one and drop our pup off!! Alejandra responded quickly and was able to take her on this incredibly short notice and even offered to come pick her up if it would help me out!!! There were plenty of dogs for Pepper to play with and I got some great pictures of them all having fun at Chrissy Park together :) My husband got home earlier than expected and was able to coordinate easily with Alejandra to pick Pepper back up. So grateful for the great help on such short notice!!!

Alejandra is fantastic!

She obviously loves dogs and is great with them. She was flexible when we had to make some last minute schedule changes. And she sent us adorable pics every day so that we could see all the adventures Troy was having (at varied locations) with a new group of buddies.

We hope Alejandra is available the next time we need to go out of town.

Alejandra was fabulous. I was nervous about leaving my dog behind when I went on vacation... he is really high energy and can be annoying if he doesn't get enough discipline and exercise. Alejandra knew just how to get him the attention he needed... and I was overwhelmed by awesome, joyful photos! Petey will definitely be back.

Thanks Alejandra!

I can't recommend Alejandra enough! I left my puppy in her care for a week and I don't think he wanted to leave. I received multiple photo updates each day. Alejandra would take him along with her dogs on several hikes and walks each day throughout the Bay Area. I'll definitely board my dog with her again.

This was my very first time using dogvacay com and the first time I have left my beloved pup with someone other than a family member. When I read Alejandra's reviews, I felt very sure that I could trust her with my dog. I am so happy I went with my instincts. Alejandra is AMAZING!! She instantly put me at ease and I knew that Roni was in for a good time. She kept me updated with emails and adorable pictures and I was able to relax and have a good time! Already booked Roni for a wkd in July! .

I cannot recommend Alejandra enough. Responsible and easy to communicate with. My Lakeland Terrier Tessy loves staying with Alejandra!
Alejandra and her family are clearly dog lovers. Bach had an amazing time with them. They took amazing care of him and sent frequent photos-- I couldn't have asked for anything more! I can't wait to book with them again.
I can't recommend Alejandra and her family enough. It's rare to have your most optimistic expectations exceeded but they were. I've never felt better about leaving Lilly anywhere.
Alejandra was great!! Our dog came home happy and tired from lots of playing, and we got so many great pics from her vacay. We've already booked our dog's next stay with Alejandra. Highly recommended!
Another totally awesome DogVacay with Alejandra. Can't recommend her enough!
Alejandra was an awesome dog sitter - super accommodating! I really liked that she has dogs of her own, two mellow white labs. Loved all of Alejandra's phone updates - my dog Tessy truly had a vacay of her own while I was away. I look forward to booking with Alejandra next time...thank you!

If we could give Alejandra and her family 5,000 stars we would!!! From their warm, clean, super dog friendly home (with an awesome little backyard!) to their immense sweetness and the over-the-top generous daily emails we received filled with the best photos of our dog playing and loving life - we couldn't have dreamed of a better place to leave our Whippet while heading out of town! And for "Goo", with what seemed like endless hikes, trips to the dog park and access to every sofa and comfy place in their home - this was unquestionably her dream retreat as her body language and oh-so relaxed self made clear the second she got in our car! We truly cannot thank Alejandra and her family enough for the care, photos and love they provided - and we know "Goo" cannot wait to go back!!

Alejandra and her family were just amazing. I received a ton of pics everyday of my dog out and about at the park, playing with other dogs, and having the time of her life. She just got home today and is totally exhausted, so I know she had a good time :). This was my first dog vacay experience and I am beyond pleased. I feel much better having my dog being looked after by a loving family as opposed to an impersonal pet hotel. I would absolutely recommend Alejandra and plan to book with her again myself!

I feel so lucky to have found Alejandra and Carlos to look after my dog, Disco! After several occasions of dropping my dog off at a local boarding company where he would be whimpering and shaking with a look of terror in his eyes (sounds dramatic-- but really!!), I was always guilt-ridden when I left him and picked him up. Not this time!!! At the meet-n-greet they immediately put Disco and myself at ease. Each day of my trip I would receive tons of photos of Disco on different adventures. Such a relaxed and happy look on his face! He was taken care of so well-- He was definitely part of their family for the week. Since I've been back I can tell he's been daydreaming about all the fun stuff they did together. I can't wait to plan another trip away and know that Disco will be in such loving, responsible care.

Alejandra is the best. I got TONS of pictures every day and I could tell Kipper was having the time of his life!
Everything was great!
Alex always helps us out when we go out of town! Our dog loves hanging out with her and Carlos. They always have a great time.
This was our first time using Dog Vacay and Alejandra was fantastic. We had a meet and greet at her place. Her dogs are nice and mellow. She even picked up our dog on the day we left. She took our dog outdoors to Ft Funston, Bernal Hill and St Mary's Park. We got pics everyday (usually a few times throughout the day). Our dog has his quirks and she listened and followed them (for example, he has a really sensitive stomach and can't eat a lot of other things and she made sure he didn't get into anything he wasn't suppossed to). And our dog was even better than we left him! He had a lot of fun and was happy when picked him up. I would use Alejandra again and hope she is available the next time we go our of town!

I can't say enough good things about Alejandra and her family. This is my third time over the course of 3 months, I've left my mutt with them due to a hectic business travel schedule. I think my dog enjoys his visits more and more each time - and I find each stay more and more convenient and stress-free. My dog has clearly bonded with her family and her dogs. This last time I dropped him off, he bolted into their house and pretty much forgot about me. It was a little blow to my ego (ha ha), but, on the other hand, it was very reassuring to see how at home he feels there. Alejandra is very accommodating and strikes a perfect balance of being professional and personable. I've had to drop him off a bit early once in order to catch an early flight and it was not at all a problem. My flight was slightly delayed on the way back due to all the rain, and again, it was not a problem at all for them. My dog loves staying with them and I am pretty mush stress free when he stays there. What else could I ask for??

Alejandra was amazing! Sent me so many pictures and clearly bonded with my dog Annie. I felt that she got a ton of exercise and play time, but also got to sleep and snuggle with Alejandra's family :) I would definitely recommend her without hesitation!

Alejandra sent me multiple pictures every day so I could see that my dog was happy on her walks and comfortable in the home. This was helpful to us, as that was one less thing we had to worry about and could just relax and enjoy our trip.
Alejandra is the most amazing host we've ver had.
She treated our two dogs as part of teh family, brought them out for really long walks to the beach and even let them sleep on the bed of her guest bedroom.

She kept on sending pictures and updates all the times.

Simply amazing!
Read More...
Our dog has stayed with Alejandra twice now—and had a blast both times! Alejandra is an awesome host... she takes all the dogs to the park, the beach, you name it. And she posts the cutest pictures of all of the adventures they've had each day, so it's easy to check in :).

Alejandra did a great job watching our dog Nettie! She sent lots of pictures and took her out on several walks/dog park visits each day.
The best of the best!! Alejandra has a passion for loving dogs, she is meant to take care of yours! We couldn't have found a better home for our dog during our trip away. We just moved to the city a month ago and I was a little stressed about finding someone who could watch our dog and provide a comforting, fun time for her. She provides updates, LOTS of pictures- they were even professional quality- and such love for our little girl. You may search high and low and all around the city to find someone as dedicated as Alejandra is to caring for your pup.. and you still won't find anyone like her. We wondered if our dog would be willing to leave her after the long weekend! She is not only a dog lover, but a loving individual who eases any worry for the owners as well. She is very flexible with drop off and pick up and is so welcoming the minute you meet her. Can't say enough good things!

This was my first experience ever using DogVacay and am more than satisfied thanks to Alejandra and her family. From my first general inquiry, to the meet and greet, and till I picked up my dog - they were friendly, professional, responsive, and just seem like genuine dog lovers I had a regular dog sitter for my dog for over 5 years and was a little apprehensive about how he would do at a new sitter. Within 5 minutes of my first visit to meet them, Rocco (my dog) was visibly content and relaxed in their environment. They sent me one or two pics a day so as to keep me updated without feeling distracted. The most telling part was when I picked up him up after 8 days away - sure, he was happy to see me, but also kind of at ease and not in a hurry to leave their home. I was surprised to see it and more importantly, very pleased to see that he bonded with their family. I've never seen him be so mellow and content when I pick him up from boarding either at a kennel or a private home. That indicated to me that he received plenty of attention, affection, and the occasional independence he likes. I cannot recommend them enough. Thank you Alejandra and Carlos!!

Our dog, Yuki, had the best time with Alejandra. We could tell from all the happy smiling updates and pics we received while away. Knowing Yuki was well cared for made being away much more enjoyable. She came home happy and tired from all the fun outings she went on.

It was easy to set up a meet and greet and drop off/pick up times. The host was very accommodating. We have every confidence recommending Alejandra to other dog owners.

Alejandra and Carlos were great! Our dog had a fun time with them over the weekend. Their dogs are very friendly and loved to play. They took him to dog parks and to the beach where he could play! would definitely recommend and utilize them again when we need another sitter.

Alejandra and her family were amazing with our dog! Not only were they able to accommodate a last minute reservation, they were great with our baby!

They sent many pictures and were always available when we texted for more! We felt that our dog was in good hands :) We will be using them next time we go out of town!

Very professional and caring. Our dog had a great time and enjoyed the walks and outings a lot.
My little dog Shelby was very happy on her first dog vacay stay! I was a bit nervous to leave her, as she's very shy, and had escaped from a dogsitter in the past, but she had a great week in her home-away-from-home while I was out of town. It was great to see pictures of her having fun while I was gone! I hope they'll be able to host Shelby again in the future :-)

Awesome sitter! I had never left my dog with anyone before. So naturally I was hesitant because I needed someone to watch my baby for 2 weeks! I was extremely pleased with the care given to my boy. Having three dogs themselves, I felt confident that they would provide a great home away from home. My instincts were right, they provided many photos and I could tell Boss had an awesome time on his vacay! Thank you!!
