I am an avid dog lover who finally got sick of leaving his pup at home, unattended for a 9-5 period. My love for dogs and my dislike for leaving cute puppy eyes at home at another monotonous day at a regular job is what led to my desire to dog sit. Being responsible for multiple dogs is a job that I feel will positively stimulate your pets and I both mentally and physically. My German Shepherd, Titus, is a mild-mannered dog, who if enticed, becomes a great playmate who loves showing affection to dogs of all shapes and sizes, without showing any aggression at all.
My girlfriend, Anna, and I are passionate animal lovers. We are both recent college graduates who love exploring the landscapes of Washington with the company of our pup Titus. We live in a 2 bedroom apartment located in Northgate at Thornton Creek. Our apartment complex has paths around the creek that are great for dog walking. We are also within close proximity (5 minutes away)of the Northacres (fenced in) off-leash dog park, which offers great running room for your dog(s) to socialize with other pups, as well as an abundance of plants and trees for your pet to wander around and sniff!
Reviews from past dog sitting:
"Alex is very friendly and makes a good effort to accommodate yours and your pups needs during the stay. He sent pictures almost daily and updated me as to how my pups were doing. I'd like to also mention that one of ours is a rescue (read: timid) and Alex was awesome with making sure she was okay. I think we've got our pup sitter now :)" - Michelle E.
"Alex was wonderful! He is incredibly sweet, caring, and a passionate dog owner and lover. I was so impressed by how dedicated he was to making sure Tucker was comfortable and having fun, taking him on walks and to the dog park. And we loved that he sent pictures so often! It made us so much more relaxed on our trip to know our pup was in good hands." - Susan R.
"Alex and his girlfriend are genuinely nice people and very good host/esses. I was planning to go out of town for about 8 days and I originally had another sitter lined up to take care of my 5 month old puppy but at last minute plans fell through. I came to Alex in sort of a panic and he responded very fast, was able to meet the following morning for a meet and greet and it turned out to be a good test run. During the days I was gone he sent me PLENTY of pictures and statuses of how my baby is doing and I was very pleased with that. He even let her sleep in his bed between him and his girlfriend hahaha I thought that was pretty awesome. There are people who like dogs and then there are DOG PEOPLE. Alex is definitely a dog person!!! I highly recommend booking with Alex!!!!!" - Gretchen L.
"I didn't personally meet Alex since I was on vacation and my dog was staying with my sister most of the time. However, there was a weekend that she was going away also, so I set her up with Alex for those few days. She had nothing but good things to say and told me that Alex was relaxed, had a beautiful and friendly German Shepherd, and that my dog was relaxed and happy at the end of her stay. Alex texted me some photos of my dog having a good time and was so flexible with our arrangements - I feel like he was a tremendous value and should probably charge more. :)" - Christopher B.
