About Alexis

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hey there, thank you for taking a look at my services!
****I am taking a break from doing in home petsitting, as my work load has grown and does not allow me the availability I previously was afforded. I am, however, still available for dog walks, provided they work into my schedule.****
I am currently the kennel manager for a non profit rescue/daycare/boarding/training facility here in Chicago. As such, I oversee all kennel activities, as well as maintaining a smooth operation for our company. I have hands on experience with dogs from all walks of life, from seriously small to enormous. I also have extensive experience with handling all sorts of temperaments. I am very familiar with dog behaviors and dog psychology and am willing to take on any challenge!
I am familiar with it all, having two dogs of my own, so health issues and behavior problems are not new to me.
If you are looking for a trustworthy, dog savvy person with an extensive background in the dog industry, look no further! I would love to meet your monkey(s)!

Alexis and her dog Charlie live on a quiet dog-friendly street on the bottom floor of a gated 2-flat building. Her cozy apartment is sure to make any dog feel at home. She is able to comfortably accommodate dogs of all sizes. You and your pup will fall in love with Charlie who loves making fast friends with everyone he meets.

After speaking with Alexis, you will know your pup is in good hands. Having several years of experience working at a local doggie day care, her knowledge of caring for dogs is above average.Alexis and her boyfriend will make sure your pup gets all the attention and exercise needed. Her boyfriend is available to walk your dog on his lunch break and Alexis can walk your dog to the gated dog park down the street. Your dog is sure to enjoy a vacay here!

Alexis is awesome! She loved all over my baby, and he came home happy as a clam! I highly recommend her!
Alexis was amazing to my puppy Ellie! She is so experienced with all dogs/puppies and loves them like they are her own. She kept me updated throughout the day with videos, pics, and texts. My puppy enjoyed playing with Alexis and her dog Charlie. She even got to play in a small kiddie pool while it was warmer outside. She gave Ellie a bath and took her to a birthday party to play with kiddos just so she doesn't stay home alone :) I can't say enough good things about Alexis's care. She is compassionate and trustworthy and also just a great down to earth friend. She will definitely be my go-to sitter in the future at DogVacay. Thank you Alexis and Charlie!

Took great care of my Max & got him to go on puppy pad. A+.
I think as a pet parents we are all very concerned and super protective of our babies. We all know it's very difficult to have someone look after your own dog(s) the way you look and care for them. After this weekend I can truly say I can trust someone with my babies. Having Alexis look after my dogs really gave me a peace of mind. I left town and couldn’t get anyone to look after my fur babies. I appreciated her communication, her meeting me before my booking, and the whole process was just so seamless. When I arrived home it was almost as if my pups didn’t miss me! They were very relaxed, and at peace. Thank you again Alexis. I will definitely be rebooking you soon! :)

Alexis was awesome with our dog, Pliny. You can tell she is a dog person through and through. Alexis was super responsive and spoiled Pliny for the week we were gone even taking her to an open field by her house to run. Definitely recommend!
Alexis is awesome! She took such great care of Blue, and sent me pictures/updates every day. She is very knowledgeable, professional, and really accomodating. I'll definitely be utilizing her services in the future. Blue and I are very happy :)
