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.

It was our first time leaving Alfie with anyone but Allie was great. She was super accommodating and quick to reply with updates during the day. Alfie had a wonderful stay and we'd happily go with Allie again.

Alexandra is so wonderful with dogs. Our pooch has been looked after by her multiple times and we feel so comfortable leaving our beloved Roxie with her. We know she loves Roxie and much as Roxie loves her!

Allie is our go-to pet sitter and she has minded our Staffy many times over the last few years. Our dog requires an experienced and attentive carer and Allie is fantastic. Most importantly, our dog loves Allie and she is great judge of character. Absolutely recommend!
