About Alegre

19 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a work-at-home and school-at-home family, conveniently located just blocks from I-91, who would love to keep your dog company while you are away.

My husband Michael and I work from home and home school our sons in our duplex house, with the first floor serving as Michael’s office and the second floor serving as our main living quarters where the boys and I spend most of our time.

We own our own business and have 2 kids, so the work day hours are more defined by what needs to be done than what the clock says -- which for us means that Michael spends the majority of the day on the 1st floor, and that is also where dogs will stay as our guests!

The 1st floor isn’t just all about the office and getting work done, it is also a functional, important part of our home. It has 3 bedrooms (one belongs to the children’s grandmother who comes to visit often, and one is a guest room in which Michael could sleep if a dog needs a person nearby overnight), a full bathroom, a kitchen, a living room, and a front room. It’s very open and bright, and is set up as a safe and comfortable space for the dogs to enjoy the stay.

Because of the way we have arranged our first and second floors, if you would prefer that your dog is not around children, we can easily keep the boys from visiting the first floor during the stay.

We have a very small yard, so for exercise & frequent potty breaks, Michael is happy to take your dog on multiple neighborhood walks, and at least one longer park walk as needed.

Since Michael and I have a somewhat unique job/house setup, let me give you an general example of what a dog’s day with us could be like:

6:30am -- up and out for a quick neighborhood walk, followed by breakfast
7am -- Michael is back downstairs after his breakfast
8am -- to the park for a longer walk, an hour/mile
9am-12pm -- Michael is downstairs
12-12:30pm -- Michael comes upstairs for lunch, then goes back downstairs
12:30-5pm -- Michael is back downstairs
4-5pm -- doggy dinner time
5pm-5:30pm -- Michael comes upstairs for dinner, then goes back downstairs
6pm -- another walk then Michael comes upstairs to help get kids ready for bed
7pm -- Michael is back downstairs
10-11pm -- get dogs ready for bed, and then Michael goes to bed

We are pretty flexible, so that is just an idea of how things could go! It is important to us that we do what works for your dog. Between the two of us there is always someone home to care for the dogs. In fact, we only own one car, so more often than not if someone has left the house during the day, there is still someone at home.

Michael has cared for dogs since he was a child and he has had a lot of experience handling dogs in both urban and rural areas, while I had dogs on my farm growing up. We have also cared for a few of our own dogs over the past 19 years that we’ve been together. Our last dog, Romeo, passed away after 15 years of love and companionship. In the past couple years, we have watched our friend (who also has small children and home-schools) host many dogs through DogVacay, and we’ve enjoyed getting to meet the dogs she’s cared for, as well as all the great owners. We know how special dogs can be in a family, and we would be honored to have the chance to spend time with, play with, and get to know your dog!

Buddy knew he was going to have a great time when we drove up to drop him off - Alegre was happy to reconnect with him - and kept us updated for the few hours we were gone - we will be using this service whenever we are off on adventures that few hours we were gone - we will be using this service whenever we are off on adventures that might not be pet friendly. Thanks Alegre & Family for the great care!

We can't possible say enough great things about Alegre and her family's care for our fur baby Buddy-- after his initial playdate/meet & greet we had no qualms about leaving him for an extended stay while we were out of state. Alegre sent us daily no qualms about leaving him for an extended stay while we were out of state. Alegre sent us daily updates with pictures and tales of his adventures . We took care of our business knowing that Buddy was very well care for and attended to. We are so happy that we found Alegre to care for Buddy when we have adventures that are not pup friendly. Will definitely book his stay again and again and recommend their care to our friends.

Alegre and her family were very flexible with drop-off, pick-up and special care of our dogs. I feel that they were loved and well taken care of. I appreciated the fact that they had learned specifics about my dogs' breeds to better understand them.
