About Alejandro

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My partner and I had two great dogs but they have since past away and we miss the love dogs can give. We are dog lovers and we can provide a very comfortable and playful environment.

Our home has a large yard to run and play and also an enclosed porch. We work from home so your puppy will get lots of love and attention.

We like long walks around our neighborhood and in near by Rock Creek Park. We can provide a safe and caring home.

Alejandro's house would be an ideal retreat for one very lucky pup. He and his partner keep a beautiful, clean, and spacious home that includes perks for pups like a grassy backyard and an enclosed porch for catching some afternoon sun and sleep. There is also a large carpeted basement with a door that leads to the backyard.

Alejandro works from home, so dogs will have 24 hour supervision and care! He is a very kind person who is experienced with dogs. Since his own dogs passed away, he is looking forward to having DogVacay guests to love! I would definitely feel 100% comfortable leaving my own dog with Alejandro - he is responsible, thorough, attentive and I know he will be a loving host!
My Daisy dog seemed to be happy and well-cared for - what more can I ask for! I will definitely choose Alex again for my future vacations! Thanks!
Alex and Daniel are absolutely wonderful. My little guys are usually VERY slow to warm up to new people, but when we arrived at the meet and greet they were instantly comfortable with them. I was kind of shocked, because it was so unlike how they typically respond to strangers, but I guess it's true that dogs really are the best judge of character :-).

Alex and Daniel have a beautiful home that is warm and inviting. They are kind, caring, and responsible individuals, and most importantly, I know my dogs are safe in their care. I am a super nervous pet parent, but their attention to detail and frequent updates helps to put my mind at ease while I'm away. When I pick up my little ones, they are happy to see me, but not stressed or frantic, and they don't need to "recover" once we get home. It's very clear that it's a relaxing, comfortable, non-stressful experience for them. I really can't say enough good things about Alex and Daniel, and I'm so, so grateful for them!
Could a dog be more lucky than to stay with Alex? He is a wonderful communicator, was ready to receive when we got there, sent photos during the week-end, and sent her on her way happy, rested and cared for.
another great stay. Starley loves going - and she usually only likes being at home
Alejandro and Daniel are the best. They are careful, detail oriented and do anything you want for your pet. The absolute best, my only hesitation in recommending them is that they will become more popular.
As always, Alejandro and Daniel provided a safe and loving home away from home for my old girl. They were very understanding of her needs, even above and beyond. I highly recommend them. Great people.
Alex and Daniel couldn't have been nicer--they even gave Dexter a bath during his stay! My dog (who has never stayed with anyone else) seemed perfectly happy. I would definitely use them again!
Great host!
Alex is always my first choice in dog sitters. I can't imagine a better person to leave Champ with!
I have used Alex a number of times, he's actually my first choice in dog sitters but he's so great that his time gets booked pretty far in advance. He's such an enthusiastic and loving dog person that I know Champ is spoiled the whole time he's there. I can't ask for a better person to leave my fur baby with!
Great host. Lovely quiet retreat for my dog who prefers solo getaways to those with lots of pups. Attentive care, Alex asked a bunch of questions to make sure she was well taken care of, took her on a lot of walks and even was kind enough to make her special rice when she needed it.
Alejandro was so sweet, gentle and attentive to my very shy Husky mix and was very accommodating to when I needed to drop off and pick up. Nothing was too much trouble!
Alejandro was wonderful and very attentive to all of my dogs needs - I will definitely be using him again (if he isn't already booked) :). He was kind, attentive, welcoming and I felt safe leaving my dog with him!
Angel had a great time. From the time she got out of the car she was pulling me toward's Alex's house. I received frequent updates and pictures. I am a very nervous pet parent and Alex made me not worry. He will stay at the top of my list to watch Angel.
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! From the moment I met Alejandro and Daniel during our Meet-and-Greet it was quite apparent that they are dog lovers as well as kind gentlemen. While I chatted with them for over an hour (because the conversation was so engaging), my dog Shell-Bee simply laid down on the area rug and fell asleep. That was it for me - there's no better judge of character than a dog and I knew that she felt entirely comfortable in their home.

I received regular updates and photos from Alejandro. My dog is older and both gentlemen were very sympathetic to her ailments. She was able to enjoy the warm sun (which she loves) from both inside the house and in the backyard. She was so excited to see me when I picked her up but I could also tell how comfortable she was around both Alejandro and Daniel. I have no doubt that she was in great hands.

I will absolutely use Alejandro and Daniel any time I have pet sitting needs. In fact, I have already reserved with them for September!
We enjoyed our vacation knowing that Daisy was in good hands, with someone to keep her company all day long, and also getting out on regular walks. Alex was flexible with our drop off/pick up times, making it easy on us, and sent us much-appreciated photos of her during her stay at his house. When we picked Daisy up, he smiled as he let us know that she may have been a bit spoiled...he discovered that she likes to cuddle up and nap under a blanket. :) If we need to travel again and can't bring Daisy along, I'll definitely see if Alex is available!
I honestly don't know where to start with this experience. While I've met nothing but wonderful hosts and Champ has never had a DogVacay he didn't wholly enjoy, this was far and away the best experience we've had.

My normal sitter was on a vacation of her own and I had procrastinated scheduling a stay for Champ. Alex took us last minute and I'm so glad he did. From the moment we met his love of dogs was obvious and he was immediately comfortable with my boisterous little monster. Even though this is the longest I had ever been away from Champ, I never once felt nervous, uncomfortable, or like my VERY playful and energetic dog was a burden to him at any point. He was flexible for the drop off and the pick up. I got pictures almost daily of how much fun everyone was having and I think both sides were spoiled with love and snuggles. They even gave Champ a bath! Let me tell you, there is nothing better than greeting a happy, clean pup after a week away.

If you're looking for a loving home away from home for your dog, stop here.

Thanks again Alex and I can't wait for our next vacay!
