Seventeen years ago, Alex, Alpha's founder, worked a corporate job which required frequent travel. Not wanting his dogs in cages for weeks at a time and not being able to constantly lean on friends and family, Alex decided a professional pet sitter was the best option.
And so the search begins.
Unanswered phones, unreturned messages, no one had a website, email or text messaging (the iPhone woudn't be invented for another 6 years). Even worse was the pricing: there were extra fees for just about everything: weekends, multiple dogs, last minute, going for walks.
Seeing an opportunity, in August of 2001 Alex decided to start his own pet care business. His mission: to offer services that are reliable, easy to use and provided by people who are experienced, trustworthy and love what they do.
Fast forward to today.
It's 2018 and Alpha Pet Care, LLC is trusted & beloved by more pet parents (and believe it or not, other pet sitters!) than everyone else combined and continues to be THE largest and fastest-growing independent in-home pet care provider in Southern California.
The secret to our success isn't really a secret it's just common sense:
It's the little things.
