About Alexandria

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
**Cannot host//CatVacay friendly!**

I'm Alex, 22 years old, California native turned Chicagoan and I have an incredibly large love for our four legged friends. I always had animals growing up due to my mom always rescuing any creature that needed a home. Friends and family refer to me as the "Pet Whisperer" as I am usually found with my pets curled around me and making friends with any animal I come in contact with. Also, my Facebook page is mostly filled with cute animal pictures & videos. I joined DogVacay in August of 2015 as advice for a part time job while going to school full time (graduated from Columbia in May 2016) and I've been sitting numerous puppers (and other animals!) ever since.

If you'd like to set up a reservation, please send me a message with the following
:
- info about your pets
- the dates of your trip/walks/etc.
- what neighborhood you're located in (it helps me to map things out in my head before committing as I do rely on the CTA)

*Prices can be negotiated. I'm fully committed to making sure your pets are well taken care of and disrupt their normal routine as little as possible. I wish to help any and all.

Thanks for checking out my profile and I hope to hear from you soon :)

Alex is fantastic! This was our first experience leaving our pup (still a young guy) while we went out of town for a few days. From our first meeting with Alex, it was clear how much she loves dogs and that Artie would be in great care with her. She gave Artie the all the extra attention a young guys still needs and kept up with his puppy pace. Alex was great about keeping in communication and sending lots of photos while we were at away. At the end of 4 days, we came home to one very happy pup and an extremely tidy apartment. I can not recommend Alex enough! We will for sure be using her again for any trips we take.

For our first trip away from our recently adopted dog, Alexandria was communicative and reassuring. Her experience with different dogs meant she could give us a skilled perspective on just how anxious our Parsley was on the scale of anxious! Alexandria sent me photos each day of our short trip. She was a thoughtful house guest, and I'm so glad she was available.

Alexandria was fantastic! She sent me updates and really took care of my pups. Both of my girls have their own issues - one has high anxiety and the other has high energy - and she was really understanding of all their needs. Beyond that, she also cleaned/straightened up my apartment before I returned which was an unexpected but appreciated surprise (I don't want to set that expectation for any future clients as that may be unfair to Alexandria. She just straightened up and left it better than I had left it for her. So please don't think she's going to also be your maid :) ). Really wonderful experience!
