My boy loved his DogVacay Alex is highly recommended.
Not so great, I do have a very friendly and active dog who has already being spending nights out at other hosts without problems. This time after picking her up she was very suspicious on us and did take a fully day to her her back normal.
Bella had a great stay with Alex! She was in good spirits when we picked her up and seemed like she had a lot of fun playing with her dog :)
Ellie had such a great time! Such a relief for puppy owners who never leave her anywhere. Definitely a return customer.
Thank you, Lexy, for taking such good care of Aries. We are so pleased of your warm accommodation to our pup while we were away. We will definitely be coming back :)
Big thanks to Alex and her family for providing a fun environment for our pups!
Our dog had a wonderful time with Alex and her family! We were nervous to leave her for the weekend because she was rescued and has some fear of new situations and people, especially men. We are told she played well with everyone, including the resident dog. She was in great spirits when we picked her up. We recommend Alex!

Thank you Alex for taking care of Tootsie while I was away. I wish she could talk, she would tell me she had a fabulous time and she is already coming back for more!
5 *****
Our Mr Baggins loved being at Alex's house which was evident right from the start at the Meet and Greet. He had so much fun just exploring the big backyard and didn't want to leave. Alex and her husband were very kind to our 14 year old bassett hound who can no longer do the stairs. As he has severe separation anxiety (howling all night) they made sure that he was with them upstairs when they all went to bed for the evening. This meant carrying him up the stairs so that he wouldn't feel as if he were left alone. We are so blessed to have found this loving home and hope to be able to have them as Bilbo's care givers again.
Sincerely,
Esther M.

Our dog Luna had a wonderful stay with Alex and her family. Luna got great exercise, playing with the other dogs there. She was very well cared for overall. Alex was very prompt and thorough in all of her communications. We loved the photo updates as well.

We picked our pups up earlier this afternoon, and hours later, they're still tuckered out! They must have had a blast with Alex and her family this week.

One of our dogs needs special eye drops during the day. Alex was quite willing to take on the challenge, and after one week, our dog's eyes still look great.

Thank you so much for taking great care of our fur babies!

Alex is amazing! She was able to help out in a pinch and my 1yr old pup loves visiting with her! He always come back tired! Definitely have found my go to sitter.
All good. My pooch was taken care of and I didn't have to worry about her. Alex and her husband are very nice.
I have struck GOLD! leaving our dog for such a long time is a very stressful feeling, but with Alex it was the most wonderful and stress FREE time. Bobi was truly at home. 5 stars!!
Alex is a great sitter! She is very responsive and sent me pictures of Gracie during her stay. She came home super tired from playing all weekend. I feel at ease leaving my pup with her for short or long stays. Alex was also able to accommodate another last minute booking a few days after her stay, which I appreciate very much.

Alex is awesome! My dog was excited to go to her place ever since the original "meet and greet". The fact that she has a back yard is essential to me. My basset needs to sun bathe! She weathered the storm of his neediness and special needs with ease. Understood when I was having some troubles and stayed calm and pleasant with sending me picture updates of my beloved Toshy Tosh.
Overall, a great and loving host.

My parents are our standard pet-sitter. However I found out last minute, that they were re-painting the kitchen, dining room, and hallway, and couldn't have dogs around. I was in a panic because it was only 3 days before our vacation. Miss Alex was our savior! First, she clearly loves dog and our furry baby was happy right away. The large backyard has different trees, bushes, grass. They have a slider right onto the patio and there are no steps. When we dropped off our dog, he didn't even want to come back in to say goodbye, and when I picked him up, he wasn't as excited to see me as he normally is. He was just so happy and relaxed! Thank you so much Miss Alex. We would highly recommend and certainly return.

Alex did a very excellent job. We know that our 2 baby giants could give anyone a hard time as they are huge but Alex and her family were able to manage them especially with Luna who is a princess diva. We really thank you for looking after them for a week with no issues. Hope, you will still be available next time.

Alex "The Dog Whisperer" is fantastic! When Alex initially met with our dog, she quickly started to form a trust connection (with the help of some treats, of course).

We suspected that getting our dog to cooperate enough for a walk might be a bit of a challenge since Kona faced some neglect issues growing up. We were impressed with Alex's ability to bond and her caring nature.

Your dog is in good hands with Miss Alex!

It was my dog's first time with DogVacay. We set up a dog meet and my dog was comfortable with Alex and her family and their dog, Aries. My dog was even the one who was noisy and barking at Aries. My dog seemed excited to be with them and Alex handled our dog very well. During our vacation, Alex responded promptly to my messages and even sent pictures.

Thanks Alex for making our baby, a part of your family, for a week. We will surely turn to Alex the next time we go away on vacation.

I have two pups that were rescued from high kill shelters and they have anxiety/fear issues. I told her they need to be socialized and I wasn't sure how they would react. My one dog came into her house (at meet and greet) snapping and growling at her dog, (I figured this would deter Alex from agreeing to take my pups) but she got down on the floor, called to him, and talked him down. Alex not only was willing to work with me/them but it was clear upon meeting her that she loves dogs. So my pups stayed for a day, and now Alex and I are going to see if we can get them to stay overnight. Thank you Alex, for giving my fur babies a chance....
If Alex can handle my two crazy rescue pups, she can take care of yours with ease!

Absolutely a pleasure! Enzo and Aries seemed to be best buds after his vacay with you and your family. Thank you Alex for welcoming my pup into your home and treating him like your own. We will see you all soon! ??
