Hey! I’m Alec. I’m from the US but living In New Zealand for a year. I have a big, goofy, pup/son staying back home with family and am itching to fill that temporary void with your pets to walk and care for.
I’ve had pets all my life, trained and fostered rescue dogs in my home, and volunteered with other people and facilities who care for animals.
I’m more than happy to take all your dogs on treks or to the dog park, am comfortable with multiples as well as dogs with any discomfort in certain situations or around other animals. I know some pets out there are maybe older or ill which can be a hard thing to trust someone with, but I do my best to remain fully aware of those needs and happily provide special care and attention wherever.
I believe I can offer a lot to you and your pets because I also know the other side of being a dog owner who’s pet occasionally goes to daycare. I’m always curious what my dog is up to when he’s with a carer: what’s he eating? How’s his temperament? Does he adjust well to the other people and pets? I’m Constantly asking for pictures and updates, which might be annoying, but he’s my child! So in turn, I treat other dogs as my own and you will get all the info on their time with me.
Exercise for your pet depends on what you’re looking for and the pets ability. Walks are typically an hour minimum, while time spent st dog parks or in social settings is more dependent on the dog’s temperament during those activities.
I’m open to helping you and your pets in any way, so please don’t hesitate to ask for anything specific!

Thanks guys can’t thank you enough
Alec and his partner Bridget looked after our two poodle cross dogs for a long weekend and were great to deal with. They were quick to respond to messages and sent us photos of what our fur babies were up to each day. And the house was very tidy on our return. We’ve already booked them for two further dates and would have no hesitation recommending them or booking them again.
I used to rehabilitate abused foster dogs in my home and know some healthy procedures for resocializing them with other animals and people.
