About Alice

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My husband and I love dogs. We have a plott hound who we rescued two and a half years ago and we can't get enough of her. But we often find one dog isn't enough. That's why we love whenever a friend asks us to watch their dog while they're out of town. We figured we should stop wishing our friends go on more vacations and instead sign up to watch other people's dogs more regularly!

I work from home three days a week and downtown the other two days. When I'm home, I love taking breaks to give belly rubs. We walk our dog twice a day--a nice morning walk and then one in the evening. We also have an amazing fenced in backyard that our dog loves to lie out in. Since we're on the ground floor (no steps for senior pets to worry about), we tend to just leave the back door open when we're home so our dog can come in and out as she wants. It's a pretty sweet life! We will always supervise your dogs when they are out back and if you don't want them hanging out in our yard, that's fine too.

We also love going to the dog park on weekends (although if your dog isn't great around lots of other pups, we don't have to go). We also really like heading to the 606 and doing a longer walk on Saturdays and Sundays. I'm a runner, so if you have an energetic pup, I'm happy to take them on a nice run.

One note is that we have upstairs neighbors who we don't want to disturb, so we try not to watch dogs that bark indoors.

While we don't allow our dog to sleep in our bed (she settles in on her soft dog bed nearby), we do allow other dogs to get up there. We also crate our dog when we leave and can do the same for you (if you have a crate) or leave your dog out--whatever you prefer.

Alice was wonderful with our 10-month old Golden Retriever, Henry. He is still a puppy and can be a bit of a handful at times, but she, her husband and their dog seemed to take great care of him. She provided photos regularly and it was great to know he was in good hands while we were out of town.

Alice welcomed our baby Ava into her home and kept us updated while we were away. She is super responsive and accommodating. We are so thankful.
Its really easy working with Alice. Flexible drop off / pick up. And Sadie has a great time during her stays!
