Really Love Dogs via Direct

Lexi and Debra provide service that consistently exceeds my expectations.  My two dogs absolutely adore them, and that feeling seems to be mutual for Lexi and Debra.  They treat my dogs like their own, showering them with love, respect and care.  
Knowing Pluto and Pumpkin are with Lexi and/or Debra means I can relax and concentrate on my work, assured that the dogs are receiving top notch care and love.  Highly Recommended!! || Bernadette and her dogs, Pumpkin & Pluto

Alexandra has been working with our puppy Brady since he was 4 months old. She is simply fantastic. Alexandra has helped to teach Brady to be house trained, have proper puppy walking leash skills and how to meet other puppies while on a walk. We have been so greatly for Alexandra and the work she has done with Brady.  We know that Brady is in great hands while we go to work. Alexandra provides us updates after each walk that include lots of images and videos of our pup! We could not ask for a better dog walker.  Alexandra is amazing!” || Katie, Matt and lovable Brady

Alexandra and Debra are the absolute greatest. We were so lucky to meet a local dog parent on a nightly stroll who recommended their walking service. We were using a daycare service at the time that just wasn’t right for our pup, so we figured we would give Really Love Dogs a try. What we didn’t know, but quickly learned, was that what they provide is not a walking service, but true love and care for our dog. Every day we are able to leave for work knowing that he will have a super fun walk with his doggy crew, and that Alexandra and Debra are taking great care of him. Our dog has been a much happier guy since joining this group: he started eating consistently and is much more comfortable when we leave for the day. It’s been a big relief — we wouldn’t hesitate for a second to recommend putting your loved one in the care of Alexandra and Debra. Their communication with us has always been excellent and we love getting our daily updates via text. It’s easy to tell when someone is just doing their job, and when they are passionate about their work. Alexandra and Debra are rare gems in this city, and we would emphatically recommend them to anyone. || Rachel, Sam and lovable pup, Morty

Thank you so much for all that you do for us! Rigby loves going on her walks, and I love all the photos! Your guys are the best! || Laura and Rigby

Thank you for the past 2.5 yrs! We really appreciate all that you have done for Dunkin since he was a puppy. You make sure that he gets his exercise, give him treats, plus we love that he always poops for you 😉 You are professionals in every sense of the word, but to us you are part of our family. We always knew that Dunkin was in great hands. You saw how special our boy was, even when he was not on his best behavior, and you loved him despite his negative characteristics. Thank you for all that you’ve done for us. || Arielle, Josh and sweet Dunkin

Thanks for helping raise Amund his first year – I know he really misses you and the pack (it’s been tough to find an arrangement as good out here in Brooklyn!) || Nandini, Sid and Amund

So thankful for your caring and reliable pet sitting services. || Caroline and sweet kitty, Opal

We are so lucky to have you in our lives, helping us along the way. Your support means so much to us and we’re very grateful for everything you do for us. The love you show juno and her love for you both allow me to leave her in your capable hands without worry or stress knowing you will look after her. || Naomi and best student, Juno

Thank you so much for taking care of our wonderful Maple Mae. She loves you both so much and we greatly appreciate you both going above and beyond for her. Thank you for giving us piece of mind, altering your schedule for her, feeding her, changing shredded wee pads, dealing with her solo walks, working around crate training and generally helping us become better puppy parents with your expert advice. We are so lucky to have Really Love Dogs as part of our family. Thank you so much for being so wonderful to Maple Mae and for being the best resource as we entered puppy parenthood! || Chelsey, Eric and Maple

Really Dogs is just simply the best. Louie our dog came into our lives from the shelter, thinking he may need some extra attention and maybe some extra walks we contacted Lexie. He immediately fell for her! She is easy to work with and accommodating at short notice. Louie loves her and her mom so much he can spot her a block away! They also took excellent care of him when we were on vacation!  || Jen and Louie

Anyone who lives on the Upper East Side has probably seen it: Single dog walker with a pack of 10+ dogs, dogs wandering into the street while the walker chats with someone, or the whole pack idle while the walker sits on a bench and surfs the web on his phone. Shouldn’t a dog walker actually walk, and shouldn’t your pet get personalized attention during that walk? If your answer to those questions is yes, Really Love Dogs is whom you should consider hiring.

I’ve used Really Love Dogs for dog walking (as well as occasional cat sitting) for more than two years now and couldn’t be happier. Lexi and Debra are 100% reliable, extremely flexible about scheduling, and have clear and reasonable pricing. You can expect a daily text that includes photos from the walk (always a highlight of the day), relays what your dog did during the walk, and flags anything that seems out of the ordinary (Lexi and Debra are quite knowledgeable about pets and pet behavior). Perhaps most importantly, your pet is not just another client – Lexi and Debra are true animal lovers, and work hard to develop a relationship with every animal they care for. I’ve already recommended Really Love Dogs to my neighbors numerous times, and wouldn’t hesitate to do so again. || Emily, Lee and best duo, Minnie and Martin

Really love dogs has dramatically changed my relationship between my two dogs. When I first brought on vicryl(my baby dog) my older dog did not appreciate it and started acting out. I originally had a dog walking service who didn’t work well with them and stitch but them which was out of character. Then o heard about Really love dogs and Alexandra and her team has. Even a Godsend. She worked with them individually initially to try to get them to get along and then integrated them into the walks. They truly love her now and also love each other. She and her team is caring and really loves them and you can tell. She keeps constant communication about the walks and sends pictures daily. She treats my dogs like her own. She is amazing. || Maria and super brothers, Stitch and Vicryl

Alexandra and Debra are wonderful! When I first brought my rescue Chihuahua home they were flexible and created a special schedule to help get her housebroken. They have also been flexible when my dog needed special care after medical procedures. It is  great that you get a text message and a picture of your dog with their “friends” on each walk. If my dog sees Alexandra or Debra in the building outside of the daily walks she gets excited and runs up to them. I highly recommend Alexandra and Debra. They truly care about each pet. || Lauren and sweet Lizzy

It was by chance my wife and I met Alexandra and her mother Deborah. We knew right away they were the perfect fit to help us with our sweet 10yr old Jack Russell on her walks. They exude the same care and love for Ryley as we do and are so grateful to have “Really Love Dogs” look after her each and every day. They walk only a small group of dogs at a time, which was very important to us, and all of the dogs are cute and sweet. “Really Love Dogs’ REALLY loves dogs, is kind, responsible and puts the safety of the dogs they walk as top priority. We look forward to working with them for a very long time. || Chris, Lauren and sweet Ryley

Getting a puppy is overwhelming. Working 10 hour days is stressful. Getting a puppy while working 10 hour days is overwhelmingly stressful. The second Hank stepped foot into our building, people were coming from left and right, tenants, doormen and passerby’s, saying “you HAVE to call Lexi, it will be the best decision you make”. The night we met her was after our first night at home with Hank. We were exhausted, overwhelmed and defeated. We were looking for a dog walker, but what we got is so much more. She is Hank’s friend, trainer and company when we can’t be there (someones gotta make the big bucks to pay for all the dog food his growing body is consuming!). He is more polite, more well-behaved and more friendly since Lexi started working with him. The text updates we get after each walk are reassuring, but it’s the pictures of him basking in the sun, or running with his friends, or catching snowflakes on his nose that truly make our days great. We couldn’t be more appreciative of all the Lexi has done for us and Hank. It is only the beginning, but I feel this will be a long, long friendship. || Lindsey and Hank the Tank

Alexandra and Debra have been giving daily walks to the light of my eyes Emma for almost 3 years now. I could not be happier to know that Emma is in good hands and well taken care off while I am at work. 

I was very hesitant to hire anyone to walk her, I was worry that she will be walked with several dogs at the time or aggressive ones but Debra and Lexi have it all work out. She is walked with dogs of similar size and similar temperaments and always in small groups. I absolutely enjoy the daily texts with updates and amazing photos of her walk. They always make sure to leave her dry after her walks on rainy days even going the extra mile as to leave her raincoat hanging neatly to dry OR keep her warm during cold winter walks, not to mention how chic my puppy looks with Alexandra’s clothing line. Her jackets are the best I seen out there.

 They are extremely reliable ad easy to work with, in many occasions they have accommodate a last minute extra walk or given dinner to Emma when I run late from work. I can’t say enough of how good they are with Emma, they go above and beyond for her and I cannot be more grateful for their love, good work ethics and dedication to what they love to do.  They are like family to us and Emma is always happy to go to “school” with them. || Martha and princess Emma

Really Love Dogs on YELP

Lexi was such a huge help while my boyfriend and I were fostering a  pup. Her prices were great and lower than many other dog walkers. Our pitbull was a little high maintenance  but Lexi was not shy and helped keep up with the training we wanted to instill and even gave great suggestions! She was very accommodating to our schedule and did what she could to make sure our pup was taken care of.  We were happy to receive updates and Lexi was happy to do them but of course leaves the choice to opt out in this. She would send pictures and write up report cards (loved these) while we were away. If we decide to foster again or adopt our own furry friend, Lexi is 100% our go to!, DeNea C.

Amazing service.  We have an older and very stubborn dog.  We typically leave our dog at one of those fancy overnight dog spas when we travel but the downfall besides the price is that  he has to sleep in a cage. We traveled for the Christmas Holiday and left my older very stubborn dog in the care or really love dogs care.  He was well taken care of and actually happy. During our time away we received text message updates upon request.  And he was taken care of, fed, and happy. For the time we were away and all in the comfort of his own home! Really Loves Dogs lives up to its name a- responsible reliable and loving !   Would definitely trust them with our furry family member again. Shira S.

Lexi has been walking my dog for almost a year and I could not in any way be happier with her service. She is responsible, exceedingly easy to work with and clearly loves the dogs that she walks. Whether it be e-mailed photos of my dog’s walk or a detailed summary of the day’s walk, I always feel comfortable with Lexi caring for my dog and knowing that she is in great hands. As a dog owner herself, it was undoubtedly obvious right from the start that she is a total animal person and right from the meet and greet I knew that this would be a simple decision (I actually had a couple of meet and greets with other people prior to meeting Lexi and was never fully comfortable, but after meeting Lexi I knew it was a no-brainer). 5/5 stars and completely at ease letting her walk my dog (who is essentially the most important thing to me in this world).     Michael R.

Lexi provides such phenomenal service! I can’t speak highly enough about her. She took such wonderful care of my little chi mix Benny.  She would send me texts with photos during the day when she came to visit.  She would leave me notes about benny when I got home to see how their visit was.  So personalized and so unique. I would highly recommend Really Love Dogs to anyone who is looking for a responsible, professional seriously committed dog lover to take care of your pet!
