About Alex

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I currently live in Fishtown, Philadelphia, and am working from home as a music producer. Aside from enjoying the relaxing music I write, your dog will enjoy all that Fishtown has to offer. There are 3 parks within walking distance from my home, as well as the PALMER DOGGIE DEPOT that is on the street I am located at. Socialized dogs will absolutely have a great time staying with me as we spend time at the dog park and make new friends!

(see pictures for dog park location)

I have no restrictions on in-home visits and daily walks. As for boarding in my home, my only restriction would be against larger breeds (mastiff, great dane, cane corso, bernese mountain, etc.)

During a long-term stay with me, I will gladly spend individual time with your pooch for naps, massages, feedings, play time, and even aromatherapy (with owner's permission).

My love for dogs started from the day I was born. My parents raised me with a beagle and they could tell I was an animal lover, especially when our beagle had pups of her own. Aside from owning different breeds throughout my life, I spent the past 2 years working at a top quality dog kennel and day care. My love for dogs extends to all breeds, shapes, sizes, and attitudes. I was responsible for monitoring large and small dog play groups, being the peace keeper when things get ruff, but also giving care to the more shy/anxious dogs.

(I have indicated my availability for other pet types because I have previously owned: snakes, lizards, fish, frogs, rabbits, ducks, and cats)

I have Alex watch over my corgis when I go away for the weekend and during the weekdays while I work full time. He has taken really good care of my dogs over the years, and I've always been pretty picky of those who are around and watch my dogs because my corgis are a handful. It has been so reassuring to have someone I can depend on and trust to take care of my pups without concern that they're being mistreated. He makes sure that my dogs are getting enough attention, walks, and care they need. I've even seen how well he handles and treats his dog, and I have watched how well he takes care of the dogs at his previous workplace. The dogs loved him, and I honestly couldn't recommend a better person to be with animals than Alex.

I worked with Alex at a Pet Resort for two years. Whether it was the most gigantic Cane Corso, who went bananas every time he saw Alex, or the tiniest Chihuahua, who loved to perch on his shoulder, Alex was gentle and caring. He was able to maintain a large group of dogs, big and small, but really loved doing one on one play with the dogs that are better off with just people. They responded so well to him, and their owners would ask if he was working, knowing that he would take extra time and care for their babies. He is a truly good person and more than capable of handling any type of dog.
