About Alexandra
Please call me Allie :)

I'm an American marketing professional based in Surry Hills. I've been here for over seven years now have become the go-to dog sitter for friends.

I enjoy the company of animals so much and look forward to having more of it in my life with Mad Paws!

I have been trusted with several breeds, ages and requirements. I'm patient and caring. I can easily handle super social pets, as well as those that need a bit more care.

I grew up wanting to be a vet until I realised (or rather, accepted) that it wasn't all playing with puppies. My family had a dog and cats growing up, so pets have always been a big part of my life. In previous jobs I've travelled a lot so I haven't gotten my own yet but pet sitting is the perfect solution.

Happy to travel a short distance for any pets or to host a small dog at mine. I have a slight allergy to cats but that's easily solved with benadryl. Also happy to do walks and checks during the day. Work from home a few days a week (outside of lockdowns) so I have some flexibility.

Of course, meet and greets are welcome and encouraged! Happy to arrange them at suitable times and places with anyone interested in bringing me on as a sitter.

Allie was great, really friendly and welcoming to Margot and super easy to communicate with. She was kind enough to come to our house for the meet and greet and she seemed to have an immediate connection with our dog Margot, who has come home seeming very content and tired (from all the fun)! We would recommend Allie very highly. Thanks for looking after Margot for us!
