Dog walker extraordinaire, Alexandra Sleightholm, has always been an animal lover. Growing up in a house full of cats, she has known from an early age that she wanted to spend her life surrounded by four legged friends. But it was her eternal longing for a dog that inspired her to rescue her first pup as soon as she lived on her own. And when her sweet dog passed away in 2009, she was determined to continue living a life full of animals.

She started Care of the Dog in 2010 to fill the void left behind by her precious pup and has loved every second of it. Walking dogs is truly her calling and she feels so lucky to get to spend her days surrounded by the best buddies anyone could ask for.

She lives downtown with her partner in crime and their amazing kitty cat, Jabber, and they dream of the day they will add a canine companion to their family.
