About Alexandra

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a full time student in college but on my spare time I love to take care of my animals. I believe I would be a great candidate because I have had a lot of experience with animals in general. I have own several kinds of pets through my life and I have treated them all like family. I do attend a college but only for three days out of the week but I also have a lot of time on my hands. I know I could be a wonderful host for any pet and they will always experience a great new adventure by my side.I also can be trusted in your home and be comfortable knowing that I will treat your pets just as good as I treat my own.

I have a fully fenced back yard and I accept all types of dogs!
Big or small dogs are just fine with me!
I accept up to 4 dogs at a time.
I also speak fluently in Spanish.

My experience with Alexandra was OK. Her Pomeranian snapped and growled at my 6 month old male Bichon Frise puppy, and Alexandra said that her Pomeranian doesn't like male dogs, but she will settle down. Alexandra left my puppy unsupervised with the Pomeranian, and sent me a picture of damage to a door that my puppy had made while Alexandra was out with the other dogs. In my initial reservation request I asked for a drop off time of noon, and an hour before drop-off Alexandra asked to delay drop-off until 6PM, so I had to rearrange my schedule. Her profile says that dogs sleep in their own beds, but two days after she accepted my reservation request she requested that I bring his crate to sleep in instead of his usual sleeping blanket. My puppy seemed anxious when I picked him up. Alexandra did a good job of brushing him and returned his brushes, bowls, and extra food.

Great as always
She took great care of julie even when she ate her shoes. Stepped in when a freind balef on me at the last second. Came and picked up the dog at took care of it.
Alexandra is a very nice but my experience was ok. Communication was not that great and when I picked up my dog, I saw she was kept in another room with the lights off. I'm not sure if that's because Alexandra was not home or what but I didn't appreciate that as my dog seemed stressed when I picked her up.

Alexandra is great. Sparky enjoyed his stay.
Alexandria took care of my Pug Minion for an entire week. She sent a photo of him and her dog Chole playing which was great. Things when well on the stay as far as I could tell...On the downside I was randomly charged an additional $10 for food because I didn't bring any..huh? Adding additional fees after a contract is signed is a major business practice no-no but I paid the additional cost. Ironically Minion woofed down an entire bowl and a half of food when I got him home which made me suspect he wasn't fed well, at least on the final day but I have no way to prove this. Overall the experience was acceptable.

Responsive, dependable, and flexible, we will definitely call again.
Alexandra was great with my senior standard poodle. I was impressed with her experience and knowledge of dogs and what they need. She quickly observed and understood Sebastian's personality and helped create a space with her dogs so that all got along. She's also really nice and easy to work with. I'd definitely have Sebastian stay with Alexandra again!

Alexandra was an awesome host and our dog thoroughly enjoyed playing her large backyard with her dog. We will definitely use her again in the near future.
Alexandra is absolutely wonderful! She is friendly, thorough, caring, and awesome about keeping open communication. She sent pics, kept me updated on how my pup was doing, etc. Her two dogs are super sweet as well, and got along really well with my dog! Would totally recommend her. :)

Alex was a great host. The stay was a first for our pup and he came back to us happy and refreshed!
Very friendly & flexible!!! I appreciated the good service for Milo.
Alexandra was a fabulous host for our 1 year old Cavapoo, Dax. He seemed to have enjoyed his stay with Alex, Chloe, Leo and another boarder. As he lives in a single dog home, he was excited to have playmates. Alex sent updates and photos while we were away. Highly recommend Alex for boarding your pet. Thanks Alexandra.

Alexandra was very accomodating considering we had to book at the last moment. Our dog seemed to have enjoyed his stay. He came home in great spirits. All in all, we were pleased with our experience.
Alexandra, who is very sweet and kind, was a great pet sitter for our Pup Cupcake. Cupcake enjoyed having multiple "roommates" for the weekend. She came home happy and tired. It was evident that Cupcake enjoyed her stay.
Alexandra is a great pet host! Our dog thoroughly enjoyed her stay. We will definitely consider her for future visits.
Alexandra was great! She really took care of Godfrey for us. We are going to continue to use for our planned trips in the future!
Alexandra was great! Wally had a great time with her dogs. Looking forward to using her in the future when I travel out of town.
Alexandra was very accommodating with my 2 puppies. The dogs were very happy. Would definitely recommend.
Alexandra is great! My dog can be a bit nervous and whiny around new people and things but she sent me an update to let me know she was doing fine which really made me happy. Also, I was running late to pick my dog up and she was very accommodating. I would definitely use her again!

I have been to Alexandra several times. Every time she takes great care of my puppy and he comes home happy! There is a lot of space for my puppy to play and other dogs that are sweet and loving to play with. She sent me updates and was very capable. I would definitely recommend her to others!

I was worried about my dog initially because he can be shy or anxious around new people. Alexandra was very welcoming and he warmed right up to her and her pets. She was very responsive, flexible, and sent me cute pics of him playing with the other dogs. I will definitely be a return customer!

Alexandra cared for our dog for about a week and did a fantastic job. Her schedule did flex a couple times as we were working out our meet and greet time, but her care of our dog was stellar. She sent pictures and videos of our pooch having a great time. We have already booked her for our next vacation!

Things were very rocky with quite poor communication. Alexandra suggested a meet and greet for the dogs prior to the reservation then didn't even contact me. For the day of drop off, I had told her the best time for me, she proposed a new time, and we went back and forth for a bit like that. Finally we came to a decision on the time, but day of (5 minutes before I was supposed to leave my dog with her) she told me she was not home and not available at the drop off time anymore. As I was attending a wedding out of town, I had to leave my dog with her mother (who did not expect him to be there). I asked Alexandra to call me when she returned home so that I could tell her all of his directions and make sure everyone was comfortable/settling in. She did not call me. I called her a few hours later (because I was getting worried), told her the instructions and she promised she would send me pictures throughout the day/night. I did not hear from her again until around 9pm. In the morning she didn't know when he was supposed to eat. My fiance and I left the out-of-town festivities early on Sunday morning so that we could come home because we felt so uncomfortable. All of that said, Spur our beagle seemed fine when we got to him. Alexandra was very apologetic, but I would never use her services again.

It was a great experience. Mano came home relaxed and happy
Alexandra hosted Sherlock for a night recently, was very welcoming, and it seemed to go really well. She has a lot of experience with dogs and comfort working with many different types of dogs. There were a few other dogs at the house and Sherlock got along great with them, which offered some good and needed distraction. She also offered to meet up and drop him off with me the next day which was nice. Her space is great with a very large back yard for dogs to run around and explore.

Lily loves to stay with Alexandra. When we pull up to her house Lily recognizes where she is and can't wait to go see her. Alexandra's dog Leo is Lily's best buddy. Alexandra is a true dog lover!
She was great
Alexandra was great. She worked around my very tight timeline. What I got back was a very happy tried pup. I would use her again any time
Alexandra was the best!
Alexandra Was The Best!!!!

She fully accommodated my crazy drop-off and pick-up times and she was very attentive to my dogs needs. Given that she is a student, she was able to spend a good amount of time with my dog (Barnabas). Furthermore, she has two dogs of her own which gave my Barnabas a couple of options for playtime. When I returned to town, I picked up a veeeeery happy mut. 5 Stars and I will definitely use her services again!

Very sweet, very helpful
Badger came back happy as a clam after having played with Alexandra and her dogs while I was on vacation!
Alexandra was great! She sent updates and photos. Lily had a great time. I will be using her in the future.
Sophie (my dog) had a good visit. Alexandra had toys and was very patient with our overly shy dog.
Alex watched our 5 month old very active puppy Rosey for a few days over Thanksgiving, and had also watched her for one night about a month ago. Our puppy is very fond of Alex and had a lot of fun playing with her dog. Alex is confident around dogs and happy to reinforce training. She took good care of Rosey for us and we are grateful.
