About alex

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello, my name is Alex, and I am a dog lover. And my dogs and I can't wait to have some fun. I Have a house, with a nice big backyard. Also, I have 3 Old English sheepdogs that love other dogs and people.

The dogs will have no trouble coming and going cause i have a big doggy door that is always open. And when they get tired no problem sleeping on the couch , or in the bed. Also i am some what of a homebody, so i will usually be at home hanging with my dogs.

Super easy going and offered the right amount of attention for our dogs. They had a great stay. Alex clearly enjoys having the animals and sent us pictures the whole time they were there which gave us extra peace of mind. Will use again. Thanks!
My dog had an awesome time with Alex and his dogs! I didn't worry a bit while I was away. I think she missed her boyfriends after she returned home. We will for sure have Alex dog sit again!
Alex was great, very accommodating and we booked last minute for our dog Aja with no problems. Our dog got along great with Alex's dog and we got informed by photos on Aja's progress. We are new to the area and are really happy we were able to find Alex, thanks for saving our trip!!

Alex is awesome! He was able to take Cocoa on very short notice and is very laid back and flexible. Cocoa seemed excited to go back to Alex's house after our initial Meet & Greet. I know she had a TON of fun swimming in his pool and playing with his dogs. I would highly suggest sending your pups to Alex.

I have 2 very active standard poodles. the boys were happily exhausted after their overnight with Alex and his pups. We will be using him again!
Wyatt had a lot of fun playing with Alex's dogs.
Wyatt had a great time.
This was my first time away from my large breed puppy. Naturally I had concerns about her special needs. Alex did a fantastic job of not just caring for her but of addressing my own needs for reassurance. His regular updates and great communication were much appreciated. I highly recommend him. Thank you!

Alex and his pack were all very laid back so we felt very confident that our two rambunctious coonhounds, Roxy & Buddy would be well taken care of. What we particularly liked is that Alex has "dog-proofed" his home so that it's a comfortable and welcoming place for his DogVacay guests. All went well and we all thank Alex for taking such good care of Buddy & Roxy.

This is a late review- but better late than never! I had the pleasure of Alex watching my pup, Zeus, 3 month's back when he was only about 3 months old. I was very nervous as Zeus was still in the process of being potty trained and wasn't sure how he was going to be with my being gone for a couple of days but he was excellent with Zeus. Alex and his roommate were very understanding and patient and they assured me that my pup would be fine in their care despite him being so young. They had 3 very large dogs and I was somewhat nervous because they were very excited to see Zeus and Zeus being only barely 3 lbs at the time time, I was concern that they might be too rough on him. It turns out that they all got along great; they were gentle giants! Alex would send me videos and pictures of all of them playing together and I was extremely happy and grateful for the pictures. Overall, I came back to a very happy puppy and I think Alex did a wonderful job of watching him. I would go back to him again for future dog sitting needs and would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a good dog caretaker.

My puppy henry had such a fun time, i think once we got back home he was depressed and missed Alex's three big dogs! Alex was super flexible nd sent me photos everyday i was gone! we will definitely come back for more play time!
Oreo had a great time with Alex and his dogs. Alex sent pictures daily which helped put my mind at ease. Oreo can be difficult but Alex seemed to handle her well. I Would recommend Alex and use him again.
Alex is really great with dogs. He is responsive and reliable. Mickey came home happy and tired after her stay. I feel comfortable leaving my dog Mickey with Alex again in the future. I recommend Alex strongly.
Alex and his three dogs kept our guy entertained and happy.
Alex and his beautiful sheep dogs made my two boys super happy. Alex was very flexible with drop off times and pick up times. I travel mostly on weekends and always leave at odd times. Super great to have a reliable dog sitter. The home is also big enough with an awesome yard for the pups to play around! Already prescheduling for next visit.

Alex was friendly, did a meet and greet before the stay. His three Old English Sheepdogs are awesome. He sent pictures everyday while I was gone. Fun to see my dog having fun during the stay. When I picked Reggie up, he had a much better demeanor than if I were to pick him up from a kennal. He seemed tired from the stay, so he definitely got a lot of attention and exercise. Thanks!

Sadie had a good stay with Alex and his pups. Mit was quick, but she had fun?
Alex was great when we needed a very last minute dog sitter. With little more than 24 hours notice, Alex was very responsive, flexible, and accommodating to watch our English Bulldog Maggie. His three sheep dogs were very friendly and they seemed to get along really well. There is a pool without a gate which was concerning to us and Alex assured us he would always supervise Maggie's time outside. We got several pictures throughout our trip which was really nice and reassuring that she was being well taken care of. Thanks Alex!

Alex and his 3 extremely friendly sheep dogs were great with my energetic full grown pup, Diego. When he was picked up, he was exhausted but happy... the mark of a good host!
Alex was also very flexible and accommodating with our last minute booking and timings. I will definitely be leaving Diego with him again, and look forward to many more visits in the future.

Alex was wonderful. He made certain that both "Foxy" and I were comfortable in our decision to stay with him. Not only did he send photo's of Foxy daily, he was prompt in answering emails/texts when I would question how she was doing. The home was clean, roomy for "ruff housing" , with a "doggy door" to the spacious back yard for true freedom and comfort. I would use Alex,again. A side note is that Alex has two sheep dogs. They are friendly and well behaved. Foxy enjoyed them. But, this should be considered if your pet is a loner.

We have 2, 11 year old, 110lb labs that have never been cared for outside of our home. They are big sweethearts but they can be a handful just because of their size. Alex was awesome with them! His home was the perfect set up with tile floors, access to a doggie door, pool time and nice dog friends to play with. Alex made sure it was ok with us for the dog door to be accessible and that we allowed them to use the pool. He said it would not be a problem to limit the use but our boys loved that part. He was very flexible with our pick up/drop off times and our pups came home happy. We will definitely work with Alex again.
