Monte loves his time with Alex!!! She is very accommodating, and provides an active and loving environment. I feel very comfortable leaving my dog with Alex!
Alex makes Mook feel at home. He loves her large, fenced yard and comes home completely spoiled by her attentiveness. I highly recommend Alex and would not want to leave my baby with anyone else.

Alexandra has watched my baby Teddy for a few years now off and on and Now I have an additional baby Ellie she agreed to watch her as well as we had a last minute family emergency out of town. Alexandra is the best dog sitter I've experienced. I never feel worried or anxious when I leave my babies with her. My new baby is quite the handful and can be trying at times and I truly appreciate her watching them for me. If you are looking for a quality person to watch your beloved pets then I would book with Alexandra.

Our 10 year old has never been boarded and we were worried about leaving him. Our fears were unfounded, and Mook had an amazing time. He had a great yard to run free in and played every day with other friendly dogs. Alex made Mook feel at home and I'm worried that next time he stays he won't want to come home :) Signing up was simple and we will definitely sign Mook up with Alex for our next trip.

Another great stay with Alex. Would recommend to anyone!
Alex is a peach. Thank you very much.
Bobby loves going to Alex's house! We appreciate how well taken care of he is when he's there. We always look forward to receiving a picture and can't imagine sending Bobby anywhere else!
Alex is great - scheduling is always easy and she is flexible when I've needed to cancel at the last minute. Ryno (my Westie) gets very excited when we pull up to Alex's house, which I always take as a good sign :) She also always makes sure to send me a picture of my little guy to show me how he's doing that day.

This was the 3rd time our puppy stayed with Alex and it was great as always. He had a lot of fun playing with the other dogs and she took great care of him.
Alex is great! Very clean house and great yard for the dogs to play in.
5 starts as always. The pup had a great time.
Awesome host, our pup had a great time. Alex was sure to send us a quick update once or twice a day. I will be booking with her in the future for sure.
Alex was wonderful. It was the first time I ever left my big boy. She sent pictures and kept in touch with me so I wouldn't worry about him. I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing a kind, caring doggie lover.
Alex provided such a wonderful home for our dog, Lily! I received daily text pictures and updates on Lily's activities and wellness. My husband and I were able to enjoy our week-long vacation with out worry! I think Lily may have had a more fun than we did!!

Alex did a wonderful job taking care of our lab, Baby. She's not yet 2 and full of energy and she was able to run around and play in her yard and she made some new dog friends! She sent us adorable updates daily so we knew she was having fun!
Alex was a great host. Very friendly and communicative! My dog really enjoyed staying with her.
Bobby spent a week at Alex's house while we were out of town. Based on the pictures we received everyday, it looked like he had a great vacation as well. We look forward to booking with Alex in the future, and I'm sure Bobby does too!
Kinsey loves it at Alexandra's house. She is well cared for there and we have no worries.
Alex is very good with getting our skittish dog to feel comfortable in her home. We know that Casey is well cared for.
Alex came over to play with the pups again this week. We couldn't be happier with her- she's timely, conscientious, and the dogs love her. Alex has become our go-to gal - so pleased we found her, and couldn't recommend her any higher!
Alex was the best.
Alexandra,

Thankyou for the excellant care of our dog ;Daisy May on such short notice. The picture you texted us showed how much she was enjoying her stay with you.
I heartly recommend Alexandra to any who are looking for a safe, secure and loving place to board their Dog with a 5 Star Rating

I seriously could not ask for a better host. Thanks again Alex!
This is the second time that I've used Alex's services. She's great, easy to work with and I know Hope is in good hands when I'm away. It's a "no-brainer" for me in the future when I need to be out of town again. I highly recommend her to anyone new to DogVacay. Don Sebek

Alex is just so easy to deal with! Our dog Rocco once again returned home happy and exhausted! When we say the name Susie he gets excited! Alex is great with the texts and photo updates! We will use her again!
They had a great time again, they love going to "vacation" at Alex's house !!
We are repeat customers with Alex. Lola is well cared for and Alex's flexibility is very helpful. Alex also sends us pictures of Lola during her visit. We love them.
Alex is the best. I can't say enough about her and how much my Oliver enjoys playing with Suzie. He knows her name now so when I tell him we are going to Suzies, he's out of control with happiness! I love our twice weekly play dates. It's so good for the dogs, and I don't feel bad about going to work anymore!

Alex is awesome. She was so accommodating and you could tell how relaxed she was around the dogs. Mine is a young lab mix with a lot of energy and he seems to have had a great day playing while I was at work. He's much more calm this evening than usual. It makes me feel a whole lot better bringing my Oliver to Alex's friendly house to play with her Susie for the day while I'm gone at work for so long, and knowing he'll be in good hands. I highly recommend Alex.

Extremely happy with Alex. Our anxiety was eased with texts, updates and photos of our dog while we were away. We were also excited that our dog has another dog to play with to help him with any fears. Totally using Alex again!
We appreciate Alex's care so much!
Casey once again had a great time with Suzy and Lola. Thanks Alex and Tony.
Alex was great I loved all the pictures she sent us while on our trip. Plan on her taking care of our dog on our next trip.
Wonderful experience from beginning to end. Alex is extremely easy to work with and is totally competent in dealing with her "house guests". The 2 days of this visit were actually tacked on to ten previous days that Hope was there due to our being stuck in Florida because of the weather in Chicago. Alex was accommodating & understanding when I had to call and let her know of our delay in returning home. She also sent a lot of pictures over the phone of Hope socializing with her new buddies. I have every intention of utilizing Alex's services for Hope whenever I travel in the future. Don Sebek

Alex and Tony are great! I was nervous at first leaving my 8 mth old puppy alone for the first time, but when I did a meet and greet with Alex and Tony, I could tell how much the other dogs that they were taken care of that day liked them and knew that they were good people. Mickey (my puppy) had such a good time that when we were leaving he turned around and tried to go back into the house. LOL

PS: I have already booked another reservation with Alex.

Indy is a shy dog and Alexandra & Tony were great. The daily updates and pics were GREAT!
Alex takes excellent care of Lola. Lola and Suzi get along well. We never like leaving Lola but at least we know she is well cared for. Alex has also been very helpful and flexible when we've needed it. I have recommended Alex to neighbors.
Alex has been wonderful! We met her in advance, were instantly comfortable with her, and more importantly, our pups loved her! Alex is always flexible and incredibly accommodating. She makes sure to send a quick photo, and somehow always manages to get all three dogs in the shot. We couldn't be happier, and will continue to book with her.

LOVED how easy Alex was to work with! My situation and need for dog care was a little different than most, and she was so compassionate and understanding. I really liked her, and more importantly Blueberry liked her! Will definitely use her services again, and will recommend her to friends and co-workers!

First time using the service and the host. Alex was a great host from our very first meeting (meet & greet). The environment for our Jordan was perfect. My boy had a playmate and great surroundings. Alex kept us updated on Jordan's progress with photos and emails. Thanks Alex for helping us have a stress free vacation. Our first choice whenever we travel again, paws down.

Jax absolutely loved his stay with Alexandra, he had a great time with the other dogs! He didn't act like he missed us very much so I know he was in good hands! We already have another vacay reserved with Alexandra.
Alex is great! My very energetic 6 month old pup comes home exhausted. He loves playing outside with Suzie!!
Great job! Kailey very happy. Thanks for special care. JC
Alex is the best! My dogs love playing with Susie and they are exhausted when they get home. They love their vacations with Alex and Susie!!
Alex was amazing. Ogie had a great time, she sent me pics of him and I could not ask for a better home away from home for our Ogie. Thanks!!!
Lola had a great time with Alex and Susie. Lola gets to run around and play with Susie in their house and beautiful back yard. I also appreciate that Alex is home with the dogs all the time so I don't have to worry about Lola. Alex has been so helpful on short notice with day care and I really appreciate it!

Second time using Alex and Casey had a great time with Alex, Tony and Susie - he can't wait for his next sleepover.
Casey had a great time with Alex She took great care of him and sent pictures and texts letting us know how he was doing. Casey and Suzie became fast friends. Will definately use Alex again.
Alex was great and very flexible, especially when our plane was delayed. My dogs love her and her dog, Susie. Highly recommend!
Alex did a great job with Bridie! She sent pictures & updates - let us relax knowing Bridie was in great hands! Will recommend her to friends!

Teddy had the pleasure of staying with Alex, Suzie & Tony and was well taken care of. Alex was great with keeping me updated with pics and texts. I will definitely be using Alex Again...
Alex and Tony were wonderful and very patient with Ronan, who can be very excitable! She sent pictures and it seems he and Susie got along very well. I would highly recommend Alexandra !
