About Alex

Hi! I'm Alex and I live in a big apartment on the upper west side (with a yard!). I work semi-remotely, so I'm around to give your dogs lots of love and attention. I'm active, so dogs get tons of exercise (if that's their thing). That usually means walking a block into Central Park, or throwing the ball in a dog park. We have a mixed breed and a cat so the house is totally animal proofed. When I heard about dog vacay I thought it was fake- I couldn't believe I could get paid to play around with dogs. Dream come true.

Alex was really wonderful! Adelaide was clearly comfortable with her right away, and since we were a tiny bit worried about needing more than 3 walks per day, it worked out great that Alex's apartment had an outdoor space so our pup could run out to pee anytime she wanted. That eased our anxiety a lot about her being too needy of a dog visitor! Alex sent pictures and videos while we were away, and it was so comforting to know we had left the dog with someone who was truly passionate about being with our dog, we know she got lots of cuddles. My only hesitation in the future (which is very small) is that Alex's roommate has a small dog who is territorial, and I'm not concerned about HER dog, I'm concerned about OURS, and whether she would be too mean and competitive in getting attention. It felt extra good knowing that for her first visit, she was the only dog for most of the holiday weekend. In the future, we wouldn't hesitate to leave our dog with Alex again, even if the other dog was around, as long as SHE was OK with it, since I'm more worried about the other dog and not ours!
