Hi there fellow pawshakers. I am Alex, your new favorite dog sitter in your area!

    About me, in as short as I can be.

    With more than 9 years spent with my forever morphing dog (which is randomly called either a dear, a fox, a lab) named Joy, I feel like I am more than skilled to spend the day / the night / the entire weekend with your pup.

    I had my fair share of close-calls along the way with my naughty Joy:

    - like when she was diagnosed with tick-bite disease (Babesiosis) and we had to spend 24h in a vet office under close surveillance or

    - when she stole and ate a full box of Ibuprofen winning an all-inclusive full weekend in the vet office

    I think I am quite prepared to deal with all sorts of unplanned situations (hopefully there will not be such cases)

    As a dog lover as I am, I was part of a supporting group (back home in Romania, before moving to Melbourne) helping stray dogs connect with their future "parents" (guardians). That being said, when I was actively involved in Rescueyhdistys Kulkurit / Rescue Association Hobo Dogs (from Finland), I travelled several times between Romania and Finland with 3-5 dogs on board (flying) making sure the new puppies will be adopted securely. I have to say that was one of the best memories I have as a volunteer carrier (I was the not-so-good-looking Jason Statham from Transporter) and I really hope they will continue to help stray dogs find a shelter and a loving familyfor the rest of their life.

    Moved to Melbourne since October 2018, I unfortunately was not able to take my dog Joy with me (due to the strict rules and regulations Australia has) and I miss her so much (I mean, we have Skype sessions, but thats not the same). Being able to help you and your dog will bring some comfort and will fill the hole I have in my heart.

    I am a full time worker that means I spend 8h per day in the office (or remotely connected). The good news is that my schedule is extreamly flexible. Mondays and Fridays I do work from home (sometimes Wednesdays also) which should be perfect for you and your dog. He / She will stay home with me, we will have a break every 2-3 hours with outside short walks and play time (the indoor garden is well suited for dogs, fully fenced, with both access to shadow and sun areas for perfect relaxation). I live in a spatious enough 2-room flat, with access to the balcony (a couch can be found there, for relaxing or just getting the warm touch of the sun), I don`t have kids nor any other pets of my own. There is room to sleep over night, either on the floor (if it will be too hot) or on the couch (if it is too cold).

    I look forward to meeting you and your lovely pet. Just one click away, don`t be afraid, contact me and ask for help. Being flexible, we will surely find a way to work around any request.

    I was a bit unsure about leaving Lola, my 6 months kelpie pupp with somebody I didn't know to start with, but as soon as I meet Alexandru I knew that she was going to be in good hands. Communication was very easy and fluent prior, during and after the sitting, and during the day they were out and about Alex sent me really lovely photos of Lola with a big smile on her face which was actually very conforting. Being a kelpie, Lola is very energetic, however when she was brought back home after being out all day she was well tired and calm. I would totally recommend Alexandru if you need a sitter!!
