About Alexandra

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I've had (and loved) pets of all ages my entire life, from full of energy to very calm and from super friendly to extremely skittish and/or aggressive. Additionally, I've regularly pet sat for five homes, three of which were multi-animal, and I volunteered at an animal shelter. I have experience administering medications, feeding, walking, grooming/bathing, training, taking swimming, and much more. I am willing to accommodate any special requests, I'm happy to care for other animals, and I look forward to giving your furry (and not furry!) friends all the love and attention they could ever need!

Alexandra regularly pet sat for me, and she was truly incredible! She watched my 2 dogs, 3 birds, and turtle, in addition to watering my plants, taking the mail in, etc. My two dogs have very different temperaments—one (Bella) was a rambunctious puppy at the time, and the other (Trixie) was a very shy, older shelter dog who had clearly been mistreated in the past—and the way she catered her approach to each dog's needs was remarkable. She could just walk into a room and immediately tell each dog's personality and respond appropriately. Not only did she consider how to treat each dog, but she really considered how to act with both of them in the room in such a way that giving attention to one wouldn't hurt the other. For instance, Bella liked being the center of attention, but Trixie needed a lot of time to warm up to strangers. When Alexandra arrived the first time I hired her, Bella came running up to her, wagging her tail and giving kisses. Alexandra pet Bella for a minute, then sat on the floor so that Trixie would be less intimidated. She continued to pet Bella with one hand, so that she still felt like she was getting attention, and slowly extended her other hand out to Trixie, who sniffed her hand, then went to hide in the other room. While Trixie was getting used to her presence, Alexandra gave her some space and gave Bella a lot of attention, so that by the time Trixie was ready to approach Alexandra, Bella would be worn out and not get jealous of Trixie getting attention. The way Alexandra just naturally and immediately knew what to do to best meet the needs of both of my very different dogs truly impressed me. I've hired a lot of pet sitters in my life, but Alexandra remains the best by far. I HIGHLY recommend her!

I have known Alexandra her whole life. Yes. I'm her mother but, without prejudice, I can say that she is the most loving, gentle and fun person around dogs. We have had dogs from the day we brought Alexandra home from the hospital. When Penny, our dog at that time, licked our daughter's head, as she lie on my lap in our rocking chair, she cooed. Since then it's been a love affair between Alexandra and dogs. Moreover, she is extremely responsible.

Okay, I'm prejudiced because Alexandra happens to be my daughter.

But with that minor disclosure out of the way, she's grown up with our dogs and cats, and always been great with them. She's also a very bright, responsible young woman with a long list of accomplishments and an impressive resume for someone who just graduated from college.

Anyone who hires her to take care of their pets will be getting an experienced sitter who loves animals and understands how to deal with them.

I've known Alexandra all her life, and it's safe to say that she talks about missing her dog at home (her parents' home) more than anything else I've heard her talk about! She's always loved animals, in fact she's been vegetarian since her parents allowed her to be.

Alexandra has been to dog training classes with her dog, she's very experienced with them, and she's a very responsible young woman.
