About Alex

Howdy!

About Me: I‘m a dedicated animal lover, with more than 4 years’ experience as a vet nurse in Melbourne. Having recently moved to Canberra, I’m missing my puppers like there’s no tomorrow! I’m a current student, studying Arts/Law at the ANU, and love getting out and exploring Canberra & its backyard in my spare time. I’m comfortable with dogs of all ages & sizes, and have extensive experience in tableting/injections and management of medical conditions. I'll make sure your doggos' holiday is just as good as yours! I'm flexible with my work schedule, so I can normally accommodate any special requests or requirements – please just ask. I’ll treat your home as if it’s my own, and always leave things spick and span.

My housemates are all big dog lovers, so your pup will never be short on love and attention. We’ve got a great, fully fenced backyard and 5 different human beds for your doggo to choose from!

I service most areas of Canberra for house sitting; for walking and home visits I am normally limited to 2602/2612, but please enquire!

My Doggos in Melbourne:

Bundi - 10 year old purebred chocolate Labrador, lover of cars & bones, terrified of water

Ruby - 9 year old toy schnoodle, sufferer of small dog syndrome and matching superiority complex, charmer of all hoomans and no dogs

Alex took care of our four month old puppy while we took a short break. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She was so friendly, professional, diligent and caring and had such a natural way with our puppy. It is wonderful that this service is available to dog owners and we were so pleased that Chelsea wasn't staying in kennels. Thank you Alex for taking such wonderful care of our pup!

Alex was wonderful. She communicated often and we had lots of pics of Shiro while we were away. Alex asked lots of questions up front to make sure everything was in order for the stay. Our pup is not a lounge-about dog and she handled her really well. I would definitely recommend Alex and will book her again in future! Thanks Alex 😊
