About Alexandra

I'm new to Waterloo and am looking to do pet sitting as I complete my masters. Previously, I lived in Toronto, where I did Rover for over a year. I loved the experience: meeting new people and their pets, having small dogs and cats over at my place to keep me company, walking dogs in the park, and also doing house-sitting. It was a valuable experience that further strengthened my pet-sitting skills! As a student, this is also a great way of sustaining myself while doing something that I genuinely enjoy. Hopefully once I have my own place, I am looking to take care of a cat myself!

Back overseas, I have a mini Maltese living with my parents whom I adore. While I miss him, it's nice to meet other pets here and explore the surrounding areas. About myself, I would say I am a very agreeable person and like to be out and about. On my dog walks, I would often do extra time free of charge simply because it was relaxing for me (and enjoyable for the dogs as well!)

In my apartment now, I don't take pets, however, I do drop in visits and walking. I can do some grooming and basic oral medication administration. My schedule is flexible I'm available to do sitting for several hours in the day, which can include several walks of half an hour or so. I'm experienced with dogs of most sizes for walks (if they are vaccinated). Afternoons and evenings are preferable. Drop in visits/sitting for cats is always welcome! For home visits, I can also do some housekeeping and check the Mail. I'm also ok with taking care of more than one cat at a time, as I had experience with this during my Rover days in Toronto.

Alex was a great sitter! Very responsive / prompt in her messages, which I really appreciated since I was on a short timeline! She took great care of my lil' cat, and was super easy to communicate with - she sent updates/photos of him while I was away which was appreciated! Thank you Alex!

I was so impressed with Alexandra! She is so kind when communicating, and it is very evident she loves animals!

My cat had a few medical concerns when she stayed with him, and she was very attentive and thorough with his medications. She took good care of my home as well. My cat really enjoyed her company, and I hope to have her stay over again in the future!
