About Alec

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! My name is Alec, and I am a film student in college in Aurora, Colorado! I am an enthusiastic, reliable, and down to earth person who has worked with dogs, cats and various pets for 10+ years, along with experience in the pet industry working as a kennel technician, and customer service rep. I am capable of feeding, playing, running/walking, maintaining cleanliness/bathing, administering medications and most importantly, giving cuddles and belly rubs! I have a lot of knowledge on several types of breeds, small, medium or big! A big reason why clients love booking with me is how engaging I am with their pets and treat them with the same love and respect as if they were my own, I provide daily updates and photos to show what a great time everyone is having! I do hope you consider me to watch your pets, and will only provide you with nothing but professionalism, kindness, and treat your pet as if it was my own!

Note: I only travel to your homes, I do not offer boarding in my own home.

It has taken me a while to write this review because I was pretty upset after our first dogvacay experience. I'm not sure if we caught him during some bad time but it was anything but amazing. I think when he was with Bo he treated him well. We got pics and text updates but, well, a lot ended up not being ok. It started off well - my husband and I met Alec and he was very professional and seemed to hear me when I said that our dog has some separation anxiety issues so it was important to not leave him for longer than 5/6 hours. Also that he was on anxiety meds and had been doing much better since. 1st red flag: Right before we left, he told us pretty much last minute that he had some DJ gigs come up so he had asked his friend to watch Bo for the times that he'd have to do that. Fine. Found a solution but not entirely thrilled that a total stranger (or several) would now be in my house. 2nd red flag: He knew we have a doggy cam so not sure why it wasn't thought that we wouldn't notice that Bo was left alone for longer and longer. One day, he was left alone for a total of 13 hours with maybe an hour to two hour break. I know this because of the time stamps. Needless to say, Bo started to revert to his anxious ways of eating and clawing at the wall. I offered to keep our dog walker, btw but he said he'd be around. 3rd red flag: we got home and our place was a mess. There were fast food containers and dirt/leaves in the house. So, not sure what happened.

We are very happy with our first DogVacay experience! For the meet and greet, Alec came by twice before our trip to go over daily routines and make sure the dogs knew who he was which is very helpful. Alec watched our 2 dogs for 8 days while we were away on our trip. He sent us daily updates on the dogs, it was great to see that they were having a great time. He also had no problem administering injections to our diabetic dog. The dogs were spoiled with love and he took care of our home as well. I recommend Alec, he is an awesome pet sitter and I will definitely be using him again as long as he is available. =)
P.S. You get a fun video of your pets at the end!

Very pleased with our DogVacay experience and with Alec's care for Apollo!
We received several messages over the long weekend. We appreciated the info about the things that didn't go so well also! Our pup has a tendency to be pretty destructive when left alone, so nothing that happened was Alec's fault, the important thing was that he let us know right away.
At the last minute before leaving, we had to start medicating Apollo and even with the added "stress" and responsibility, Alec didn't seem to have any issues or qualms about taking care of it.
Thank you!!

Alec was awesome with our dogs and kept us up to date with pictures of our pups. He met us the day before to get to know us and our dogs a little which we really appreciated! We like to travel and will definitely be using Alec again if he is available!

Alec watched our dog Rugby for 9 days while we were on vacation. He came ahead of time and got to know Rugby and his routine, then stayed at our house to take care of him while we were gone. Alec did a great job and Rugby really liked him. He communicated with us each day with pictures and videos. Alec is dependable and he loves animals and they love him.

Alec did a great job with our dogs. He came over to visit with them while I was out of time. The pictures were a great touch. I would highly recommend Alec and plan on using him again the next time I am away.
Alec stayed with our beagle Harper for 3 nights/4 days and we couldn't have asked for a better experience! He was timely, friendly and when we got home it was apparent Harper had a great time! In the past, we had told folks that we liked to hear from them daily, and received seldom updates. Not with Alec! We received multiple photos of Harper as well as messages letting us know how everything was going. We greatly appreciate Alec's professionalism and look forward to booking with him in the future!

Alec was great with Herbie. He left our house clean and was easy to work with.
I have 4 dogs and 1 kitten and they're a handful. I was initially worried no one could take on such a pack. I had already seen that Alec had good reviews so I booked him for a whole week to stay at our house. He sent pictures and texts within just an hour and really eased my mind. When we met for the meet and greet he was very kind and didn't seem to be scared of all the commotion my dogs were making that a stranger was in their home. We had to leave to the airport at 5 AM and he was there right at 5!!! We got back and all my babies were happy and taken care of! I will definitely be keeping his number in my phone! This guy is a professional and very dependable and nice :)

Alec was great- he kept me updated on Babe and sent pictures throughout the weekend! I came back to a clean, organized house and a happy pup. Will definitely re-book.
Alec took good care of our dog and home while we were gone. He sent updates daily.
Alec was awesome! We had photo updates of our pets during our vacation and they looked really happy and well cared for. Alec is very responsible and caring and we highly recommend him if you want to leave your pets in his care.5 stars!
We love having Alec watch Sasha! He is attentive to her special needs and always keeps us informed on how she is doing via text and photos. He even shoveled her a spot out in the backyard for her to go out in after this week's snow storm! He is very trustworthy and reliable and leaves our house clean and tidy. We know our dog is well looked after with Alec.

We've hired Alec before to take care of our dogs and he always does a great job. The fact that Dexter even lets him in the door speaks highly of Alec and his ability to handle them.
We have used Alec many times to watch our dog. He is great about sending pictures and updates so we can enjoy our trip worry free. We're so glad we've found our dog-sitter.
Alec has been a reliable dog "sitter" for us many times. Our dog (german-shepherd) requires being carried outside twice a day, so it's no small feat. He's also proved flexible and understanding, working with our changing schedule.
I was able to book with Alec pretty last minute and was happy I did! I have never used Dogvacay before and was very nervous leaving my little guys. I was able to do a Meet-n-Greet to review terms and a House Visit to introduce him to my pack before my trip. I opted for the House Stay because I live in a pretty rural area. I enjoyed getting status updates everyday and the pictures made me feel at ease. The video was such a bonus! Very talented guy. House was as clean as we left it and dogs were happy! I would recommend him and would book again.

Absolutely amazing! My 8 yo pup has epilepsy so I'm generally pretty nervous about letting other people sit her, but Alec made me feel totally comfortable. He sent me lots of updates and even took care of her perfectly when she had a seizure. I 100% recommend him and will definitely be using him when I go out of town again!

Alec was a great dog sitter. He spent 2 days and 1 night watching my dogs. He kept me updated with photos and text messages each day. I felt great leaving my dogs in his hands. He even made an adorable video recapping the time he spent with the dogs, such a perk! Highly recommended.
