About Alex

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello dear dog owner. I would like to extend my services to you. I've owned dogs all my life ( 2 countries and the East and West coast).

I'm a 15 year Venice Beach resident and I share my beach bungalow with my brother.

I'm a work from home freelance editor that is perfectly happy never leaving my little oasis. It was picked out specifically for it's ideal doggie environment. With a 360 gated run around the bungalow for the most energetic of breeds to play in and a patch of grass for their unscheduled needs, it's the happiest of environments. And extra safe!

I'd love to say that I trained my own dog well but the truth is he trained me. I walk twice a day thru the beautiful neighborhood because we all know that sitting for the majority of your work life is not good for you. I just happen to take poochies with me:)

Alex and his dog Bowie were the best host. Alex made sure my dog was completely comfortable, and Bowie might just be the sweetest and most welcoming dog we have ever met.
Alex made us feel comfortable from the beginning to the end! We've never left Emma with anyone other than family members before, & he gave us peace of mind knowing she was having fun & safe! We will definitely be contacting him again before our next vacation!!
Alex is really cool and friendly. My dog had a great time with him and his dog--they get along instantly. He has a fully fenced yard so the dogs can run around and chase each other without worrying about them getting loose. He was quite flexible working around our flights and ever changing schedules which was definitely appreciated.
Alex was very friendly and the dogs looked like they had a great time! I would absolutely use him again.
Fantastic! I interviewed a lot of people to watch our Golden. Alex was super accommodating, obviously loves dogs, and our dog had a great time while he was there. Will definitely go back!
Alex was an amazing host with a great house, perfect for my dog. He took him on long walks and I could tell when I picked him back up that he was well cared for. 10/10, I would definitely recommend Alex.
Alex and Bowie are the perfect hosts! The way they welcomed us at the meet and greet and the hospitality they showed made my husband and I feel comfortable enough to leave Cokis with other than family members for the first time ever. Cokis was so happy with her stay that we actually rebooked a second vacay before we even had time to write this review!
I would definitely leave my dog with Alex again! He was friendly, reliable and accommodating. His place has a backyard, which is really great for dogs such as mine, who enjoy being outside. Alex also sent me some pictures of my dog, even though I hadn't wanted to request them so as not to cause him extra work.
Alex is amazing! He treats my Chica like the princess she is and there's never a worry that she is being loved and well cared for. She loves the back yard, that Alex is at home with her during the day, and the long walks with Bowie. Couldn't be happier
What a great host! I can't thank Alex (and his dog Bowie) enough for taking such a good care of our little dalmatian when we were away for a whole week. He asked us a lot of questions at the "meet and greet" session to make sure those parties were a good fit. While we were away, the communication was very easy even though we were in Europe in a different time zone. Alex sent me pictures every day, which I enjoyed very much.
Scarlett made a new friend, Bowie, who became her vacay buddy. They got along right away and became inseparable. We cannot wait for Scarlett to spend more time with Alex and Bowie next time we go away. :-)
Alex and his pup made my dog's time with them look like vacation time! Theo played so much and received so much love that it made it a little more bearable being away from him. Alex was super attentive, responded all our calls, sent pictures, gave theo his medicine, he was fantastic. We will definitely use him again! Thanks Alex!
Alex is great. Out dog Cherry had great time. Alex works at home and he has a dog of his own and Cherry never had any moment to be alone! We sure will see Alex again in the near future! Michael & Emiko & Cherry
Brogan loved his weekend with Alex and Bowie. Great outdoor space and loving home.
Yet again Pippa had an amazing time and was well taken care of. I know she loves staying with Alex because she goes nuts in the car when we're half way to his home. And when she sees him she runs into his outstretched arms. We're very happy to have met Alex (and Bowie) and know she's safe staying with him.
