About Alexandria

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
**Cannot host**

**CatVacay friendly!**

Hello there, I'm Alex! I'm 22 years old, a recent graduate of Columbia College Chicago and I absolutely adore animals of any kind. I'm originally from California and I've been living in Chicago with my roommate from college and her cat for about 3 years now. I have two dogs and a cat backin California, so I'm really never without a pet of some kind.
I've just always had a deep love for animals. My mom loves them and has been rescuing/caring for animals my whole life.
grew up with an assortment of multiple pets at a time (chickens, reptiles, fish, tortoises, etc) so handling multiple pets of all kinds is not a problem for me.

If you're interested in having me watch your pet, please send me a message and we can work everything out.

Thank you for checking out my profile and I look forward to working with yo!

I highly recommend Alex to take care of your pets needs, whether it's feed and walk or house sitting. Communication was very easy and rates are very reasonable. We will use her again for future needs.
Alex stayed overnight at our place to watch our bulldog for two days, one night. Everything went great and she sent a lot of pictures and updates! She was very quick to respond to my initial request and very accommodating in meeting our dog and picking up keys. I would definitely recommend her.

This is my second booking with Alex and again everything was great! I've already scheduled 2 more stays with her!
Alex was very accommodating to some last minute changes in our travel plans. We thought we'd only need afternoon walks while I was away for work...but my husband had to go out of town during the same week.
We asked Alex if she could change the daily walks to four days of full-on living in our home. It was a tall ask at the last minute, but she graciously accepted...and gave us so much peace of mind.

We've hired Alex at least 4 times!!!

Alex is Super Awesome! Our pets were stoked to see her again - so reassuring!

So, Alex basically lived at our house for almost two weeks taking care of our little guys. Not only did she send me photo updates, but the photos were often depictions of our pets sleeping on or near her. Obviously, they love her.

Before we left, we let Alex know that she could feel free to eat/drink whatever she wanted...and that she could have a friends over if she'd like. After all, she's got a life, too. :)
Actually, this has been our policy every time she's watched over our pets...and it's always worked out well. Our home is always clean and just as we left it....and in some instances a little better than we left it.

Alex gets two paws up, all around!

Our little critters were happy and calm thanks to daily visits by Alex. :)
Alex stayed at our place for the weekend and watched both of our dogs, a 13 year old pit and a 7 year old mix. All went well and we got a lot of updates.
This was my first booking with Alex. She sent texts/photos to let me know how things were going, the apt was clean when I got back in town and she kept me updated throughout her stay with my dog. I have already booked her again for upcoming trips!
Alex dropped in to check on my cat while I was on a short vacation. She kept me up-to-date and even sent me a pic of my fur baby during her visit which gave me peace of mind while I was away. Thanks, Alex!
I had a great experience with Alex. She sent me daily pictures of my pup! she even put up with my crazy cat while she was there. My apartment was neat and tidy when I came back. I will use her again in the future.
If you are looking for a true dog lover look no further! I contacted Alex for a 2-week gig that required her to stay in my home with my two teenie Long Haired Chihuahuas, MeiMei, and Kikilu!

To say I am pleased would be an understatement. Not only;y did I come home to two happy healthy clean little pups, my house was immaculate which was an added plus as I lost my wallet and had a rough trip back home.

You could not go wrong by booking Alex! She is a true find!

Alex was amazing! She stayed with our anxiety-riddled pittie Moose and sent lots of updates of him blissfully passed out/getting belly rubs. Moose was barely even excited to see us when we got back which proves he had a great time with her!

Will definitely be asking her to help us out again.

We could not be happier finding Alex to watch our sweet Bennie over the weekend. On Thursday morning I left a request for Alex to see if she was available this weekend especially being so last minute. She responded several hours later and by the evening she came over for a meet and greet! Bennie immediately went to Alex for lots of pets and we could tell Alex is a complete dog person just from the way she was interacting with our pup. We left Friday and by the night we received updates and pictures of our sweet pup. The communication between us and Alex was great and made our hearts warm knowing we found someone to look after our girl that we could trust. We will definitely be reserving Alex for future non-dog vacations and as well as other services! Thanks again so much Alex!

Alexandria came through in a pinch. I had a corporate function that was going to go later than I thought. I texted her that morning to ask about a late evening walk, and she was able to accommodate me. She followed all my instructions (I have condo building with strict rules on pets) even fed my pets as well, which really helped me out. I'd use her services again for sure!

Alex is awesome!!!
She stayed with our pets for 10 days making sure they were happy and loved and cared for.
When we first met, I knew that Alex was an obvious animal lover - my pets knew, too, as they took to her right away.
During her stay, Alex made sure to take our dog, Pepper on frequent walks to the dog park in addition to giving her a lot of quality play time at home.
What's more is that she would send me the cutest photos, reassuring me that everyone was as happy as can be!
We will definitely hire Alex again in the future!

Alex was great! She took my reservation at the last minute for Thanksgiving weekend to take care of my cat Bean. She stopped by daily to feed Bean and play with her, and cleaned the litter box once. Bean seemed happy when we got back, so I was happy.
Alex was great with our dogs! I had her come walk my pitbul and lab while I was gone for the weekend. She helped me out pretty last minute and came the day after I talked to her to meet the dogs. Overall I felt safe leaving my babies with her!
Alex was so sweet! We contacted her last minute and she offered to stop by and meet my dog (Elsie) the day before my husband and I were going out of town, which made leaving much easier. We showed her all of Elsie's things and Elsie quickly warmed up to Alex.

Alex sent us pictures and updates while we were gone and was very flexible with our schedule. I would recommend her to anyone and definitely work with her again.

We hired Alexandria to walk our dog two to three times a day while we were out of town. The job wasn't as easy as it sounds b/c she had to also contend with my mother-in-law who can be a bit difficult. Alexandria handled it well and completed the job which we are super thankful for. She got along well with our dog, Riley, and was able to bridge a cultural divide with my mother-in-law. We would recommend her for your pet sitting needs!

Alex was great when dealing with the kids and the animals on her visits to the house. Sammy did great when we got home, he was way better adjusted then he is after being boarded.
Alex was great with my dogs! She took the time to play with them and text me with updates while I was on vacation. I would recommend her to anyone. Would definitely use again.
