About Alex & Jenny

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Alex & Jenny here! We're a fun-loving, dog-sitting, house-renovating couple who would LOVE the opportunity to care for your pup! We are self-employed and work from home and we renovate old houses on the side. We usually bounce between our primary house and the house we're renovating so your dog will get a nice variety and 2 backyards to play in! Having dogs around is a great compliment to our life here and we are around full-time to supervise and entertain them. We have lived with dogs our whole life and we do dog training as a hobby (just ask us to show you some of our dog Maya's tricks some time haha). If you need a SAFE and FUN place with a LOVING home for your dog then you've come to the right place!

MEET MAYA:
Maya is a wonderful and sweet 9 year old rescue dog from California (lab mix). She is gentle and caring toward kids, people, and pets of all type. Maya loves having friends over and we're sure she will get along just fine with your pup(s).

LOCATION:
We are located near Grosse Pointe along the Detroit river and near several large parks. We are only a 30 second walk to the nearest park and only a few minutes walk to Grosse Pointe. If we happen to be at the house we're renovating it is also in the same neighborhood just a couple minutes away.

ABOUT OUR HOME
The house sits on a double lot with a large fence-enclosed backyard. There is plenty of room for the dogs to run and play and lounge around. Maya's favorite past-time is to protect the backyard from squirrels and birds so I'm sure your doggie will also enjoy participating :-)

DAILY EXERCISE
We love to play in the back yard (weather permitting) and depending on the season we will also head out for a daily excursion to a nearby park. The dogs have use of the house and we let them out whenever they want to go outside (at least several times per day) so they can spend more time inside or outside depending on their preference.

INSIDE THE HOME
Inside the home, your dog will enjoy several nice cozy doggy beds and more dog toys than you can imagine. :-) We work from home so the dogs can hang out with us or they can play in other parts of the house / yard.

SECURITY
The fence-enclosed backyard provides total security so your dog will be safe and well protected.

PHOTOS
We will take some photos (and possibly video) to document your dog's time here. We also have a Facebook Page for Maya & her furry friends. Facebook search for 'wonderdoggy' or ask us about it. :)

TRAINING
Depending on the nature of your dog and how long they will stay, we are open to helping with some behavior training if you'd like.

AGGRESSIVE OR SPECIAL NEEDS DOGS
We usually prefer to take care of friendly dogs but if you have an aggressive dog or a special needs animal please get in touch so we can discuss the details.

HOUSE BROKEN?
At this time we prefer to host dogs that are house broken. If your doggie might have problems going potty inside we might be able to accommodate them but please understand that this situation creates a LOT more work for us so we have decided to adjust our rates accordingly and will charge an additional $20 per night for dogs who go potty inside. Please let us know about your dog and we will happily adjust the booking to fit your needs.

Very accommodating on short notice! Alex and Jenny took great care of our pup!
Alex and Jenny took great care of my 5 year old dog Chloe. Very friendly and professional. When I went to pick my dog up, I forgot to pick up her dog bed, but Alex so kindly drove over to my apt and dropped it off within an hour. Will definitely be using these hosts in the future, and recommend them highly.

The process was great and efficient and my host was awesome.
Great place and Annie loved it!!!
Alex and Jenny were really nice and even sent pics of my Jax having fun. They were also mindful of his past leg injury which I really appreciate.
Alex and jenny are great people! They watched my GSD and Lab. They sent pictures and were very responsive when i texted to see how they were doing. i would HIGHLY recommend them!!
Henry is always so happy to see Alex and Jenny. He nearly pulls me over running up to the house. I know he has a great time because he comes home tired! I love that Alex and Jenny send pictures of him hanging out and being a good boy.
Alex and Jenny were great caretakers of Munch. They kept me updated on how he was doing and sent me photos. He was very chill and relaxed when I picked him up so I know he had a good time.
Alex and Jenny were awesome! Our pups came home tired after lots of fun playing with their pack. We will definitely use their services again!
Alex and Jenny were great. My dogs had a lot of fun and were well taken care of. They have a fenced in yard for the dogs to play in and their dog is very friendly. They took my dogs everywhere with them and provided 24/7 supervision. They sent frequent pictures and updates. I will definitely use Alex and Jenny again in the future!

Our pups love Alex and Jenny! Would definitely recommend having them watch your pups!
Alex and Jenny are so great! They're always prepared in case we forget something, and have always been very willing to accommodate our schedule, which makes vacations and trips much easier. They have a big fenced-in yard with lots of trees and grass that our dogs can run around in. Their dog is quite friendly and inviting, and it's nice that Alex and Jenny are available to give them a lot of attention throughout the day.

It was obvious that Leroy had a good time, he was completely exhausted. I would have liked if they had followed the instructions that I left and used the travel crate that I supplied so that he could have gotten more sleep at night. Since this was my first time using this service and the first time leaving my dog, I found it a little odd that I was not invited to see where my dog would be staying, since it was a different location from their listing, but I was assured that it was puppy proof. Even though I received some picture updates over the weekend, I was surprised that we were just handed the dog and his stuff without any conversation about how the weekend went. It would have been nice to be invited into the home so we could have inventoried his belongings to make sure they were all there. Instead we had to drive back to pick up the things that were forgotten.

Alex & Jenny were great! We needed a last minute sitter for our dog Ziggy and they were more than helpful. It's always hard to leave your dog with a stranger but Alex was super kind and made sure to send us a picture of Ziggy hanging out at his house. When we picked our pup up, I could tell he had a great time! :)

Alex and Jenny took wonderful care of our beagles! It is obvious that they were loved and happy! We will for sure be using them again if they will have us!
Penrod had a great time and was well taken care of!
Alex, Jenny, and their pup are such great hosts! It was obvious that they really care about the well being of our dog when watching him. They were very communicative when we were away which made me feel more at ease. The pictures were a wonderful touch as it was nice to see our dog having fun with his doggie buddies and relaxing in their home. I hope to have our dog stay with Alex and Jenny whenever we have to go out of town.
