About Alex

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We're a dog loving couple who can't wait to spend time with your pup!

My job provides the flexibility to work from home guaranteeing your furry friend gets lots of attention, walks and potty breaks. I have experience training service dogs for 'Canine Companions for Independence' in New York so I can assure that your dog will have a safe and joyful vacation at our home.

My girlfriend has 3 years experience caring for a pug with health issues and she loves caring for dogs with special needs.

We are both active and live walking distance to 3 dog parks so we are happy to give your pooch as athletic a walk (or run) as he enjoys!

We typically do not accept long-term boarding (1 week+).

Alex took amazing care of Dr. Radio!

When we retrieved Dr. Radio from Alex. Dr. Radio was happy to see us. He appeared calm and confident—so much so that his behavior suggested that he could have stayed longer without any issues!

Alex kept us in the loop during our time away. He provided updates with their activities together; sent us photos of Dr. Radio, and he also gave Dr. Radio a bath! Alex was very easy to communicate with.

Since we've retrieved Dr. Radio, he has been the same good ol' puppy that he always has been.

If there was any indicator that Alex was a great host, it was this.

We would absolutely ask Alex to look after Dr. Radio again. Thank you Alex for easing any concerns for leaving Dr. Radio in your kind and great hands.

Alex was Very flexible and accommodating with pick up and drop off. He took great care of Penny and she came home nice and tired.
Alex was always quick to respond and made arrangements a breeze for drop off and pick up. I was happy to see my dog settled in nicely when Alex sent me a photo update. I would'nt hesitate to book with Alex again.
Alex took great care of Pewi as always!
Alex was great with Pewi as always :) thanks for the frozen blueberry treats. Great idea!
Thank you Alex for taking Scarlett for a vacay! I appreciated your flexibility in drop off and pick up times. I was looking for a place where she would be the only dog as she is not always friendly with other dogs, so I was glad to find you. Scarlett seemed in good spirits when I picked her up. A great first experience with Dog Vacay.
