Peter and Linda Alexander
Founders and Owners since 2003
Pete Alexander, who hails from Chicago, and Linda Alexander, a San Francisco native, are 24-year residents of beautiful Petaluma. During their years as corporate managers, they frequently had to take business trips or the occasional vacation, and had to find competent, loving care for their beloved Golden Retriever, Jenny.
Over the years, their experiences with hiring many different pet sitters garnered a list of traits that an ideal pet sitter should have: reliability, flexibility, good communication skills, and most importantly, loving care and kindness toward animals. Pete and Linda wanted to feel confident that they were leaving their dear companion in the best possible hands, someone who had the ability to step in and be a substitute pet “parent” while they were away.
With these ideals in mind, they started their own pet sitting company in 2003, naming it Pet Indulgence to reflect their goal to pamper every pet entrusted to their care.
Linda has been an outreach volunteer for the San Francisco SPCA in the Mobile Adoption Outreach Program, and has been a dog walker volunteer for CCI for the past 10 years. Peter has volunteered in the veterinarian clinic, and as a dog walker at CCI in Santa Rosa, and they both continue today as a puppy socializers. Pete was also the Managing Editor of FETCH, a newspaper for dogs and their owners in Sonoma, Marin, Napa, Alameda, and San Francisco Counties. Linda and Pete graduated from the Canine Behavior Academy at the Marin Humane Society in December, 2011.
