About Alexa

11 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My passion for animals started when I was young. I’ve worked with many different breeds, sizes, ages, and of course personalities. I definitely have a soft spot for pugs, but any four-legged animal has my heart! (Corgis & Doxies!)

My experience with animals adds up to about 12 years total. Through the years I've been a Rescue Volunteer, Grooming Salon Bather, Pet Boutique Manager, Pet Supply Clerk, Veterinary Receptionist & Certified Veterinary Assistant.

Currently I am a Full Time Pet Sitter known as "The Pug Mom" in Las Vegas. In addition to running The Pug Mom, I enjoy being a Personal Assistant to a top Entertainment Talent Buyer helping run Bogus Productions, Smash Magazine and I'm on the Guestlist. I also participate in music festivals like Life is Beautiful.

In my free time, I am enjoy reading books on my kindle, being a film critic at Regal Cinemas and taking a break from reality with adventures at Disneyland.

** PLEASE NOTE: MY CALENDAR IS ALWAYS MARKED OPEN AS I OFFER FULL PET SITTING SERVICES, BUT MY BOARDING AVAILABILITY MAY NOT ALWAYS BE AVAILABLE. I AM A LICENSED INSURED AND BONDED PROFESSIONAL. I ONLY BOARD DOGS THAT ARE 30LBS AND UNDER BUT AM OPEN TO AT-HOME CARE FOR THOSE OVER 30 POUNDS! I LOVE ALL AGES & BREEDS!**

I'm super happy I found someone I trust completely to watch my pup Milka while I'm away home.
Alexa kept me updated with adorable daily pictures and she spoiled her as she was her own giving her kisses, hugs, treats and letting her sit on her couch! Lol.
Thanks Alexa, Lily and Luna for your hospitality and we'll see you soon for the Thanksgiving weekend!

I was feeling so nervous leaving my two dogs with a stranger. But from the moment I met Alexa I was put at ease. She is the best! Not to mention her two pug daughters are the cutest. I left my dogs with her for a week, and they came home the happiest pups ever. She sent daily photo updates and written updates. Feel much better about moving to Vegas knowing we have someone like her to take care of the dogs when we need it. Will be repeats for sure!!

I was a bit anxious to leave for the first time ever my senior dog Milka being pet sit by a stranger but the moment I met Alexa a.k.a The Pug Mom and her adorable little pack I knew my Milka was in good hands!

Her pugs and their corgi cousins are welcoming and super friendly and Alexa is the sweetest, most capable hostess. I'll be confident and happy to leave Milka again under her care.

We had a wonderful experience with Alexa a.k.a The Pug Mom. She was more than accommodating since we were somewhat of a last minute booking, and was always willing to answer any questions you had. Easily available by text, phone, website, or email, and friendly. We will definitely be a repeat customer, and I feel like she took good care of my Zeuss with love and compassion. She even managed to give him a bath!
