About Alex

About me

My name is Alex, and I'm a 35 year old tax professional who works from home full-time. 

I have long been a petsitter of choice for friends and family, and have signed up to Pawshake to bring more doggy friends into my home. I love dogs, and have always had dogs, and my dog Wally and I love the company!  

Also looking after your furbabies is Wally. He is a 3 year old groodle. He is a loveable, excitable pooch, and is an excellent best bud and playmate. When Wally isn't doing zoomies around our backyard, he enjoys sleeping and stealing socks. 


Services offered

Doggy day care and overnight visits (boarding) - working full-time from home, I'm able to keep a close eye on doggy visitors throughout the day. Pooches have free reign around my home and the sizeable fully-fenced backyard. Dogs are treated as part of our family and they are allowed to relax on our couches/bed if they choose. However, I will always enquire with you about your boundaries at home, and will endeavour to apply consistent rules while your pooch stays with me.   

We live right between the Darebin creek and the Merri creek, so there are beautiful walking trails nearby. We also have a large track nearby that we frequent for walks on weekdays, and a fully fenced off-lead dog park 10 minutes down the road (double gated) that we head to on weekends. 

At the moment I'm not accepting any new clients for doggy day care, however I welcome new enquiries for boarding :)  

Further notes

  • I generally only accept 2 dogs in addition to Wally at any given time. This makes sure your pet/s get the attention they deserve, and allows me to walk them all comfortably.
  • Wally gets walked at least once every day, and I'd love to bring your dog/s along on our daily walk if you are comfortable for me to do so. I am flexible to incorporate additional daily walks if this is something that your pet is used to, and enjoys.
  • I accept dogs of all ages and sizes. 
  • Wally is fully vaccinated. 
  • I would appreciate if dogs are up-to-date with flea treatments.

    Dog Boarding

    I'm reluctant to say how excellent Alex is as I don't want to share her with others!

    Everything has been thought through by this experienced sitter who was not phased by our large male greyhound. My only complaint is one we all like tohave: Henry was thoroughly spoilt and probably now sees us as a bit second rate in the parenting area. I'm sure he will be jumping out of the car next time we go to Aunt Alex's house and he can once again join Wally and other doggy mates.

    Doggy Day Care
    Biddy, 2022-06-09

    Alex and her beautiful dog Wally are excellent at taking care of Cosmo. As a lockdown puppy who sometimes has separation anxiety, it’s so great to see him run through their front door with such excitement and no turning back.

    Cosmo always comes home happy and exhausted in a satisfying way.

    I love the pupdates - some of the best photos of Cosmo!

    We would highly recommend Alex and will be sending Cosmo there whenever we can.

    Thanks Alex!
