Who is The Pug Mom?

Alexa here, although some people like to call me 'The Pug Mom'. I am a pet care consultant, wellness coach and have been a creative leader my entire life. I grew up in Southern California and when I wasn’t taking photos or at live music shows, I was at home with the dogs watching Friends. These days I reside in Las Vegas, NV with my two yin yang pugs, Lily & Luna plus my half pug half beagle, Dixon. For the past 5 years, I've been offering Certified Professional Pet Care to Summerlin and Southwest of Las Vegas.

What is Pets of Las Vegas?

Pets of Las Vegas is a resource for pet owners, to help you navigate the journey of MAKING YOUR PET'S LIFE BETTER! It’s an official network directory of service providers who offer professional pet care to the entire community of Southern Nevada. It's the go-to website for pet owners and professional to share their stories and connect through their beloved pets! I originally became a Professional Pet Sitter to help pet owners live the life they deserved, but with time I realized that caring for pets wasn't solving the declining professional pet care of today. At the end of the day, you can hire anyone to take care of your pets, but they all can't be trusted especially those who are not licensed, insured & bonded. Hiring friends or family to care for your pet might work for some families, but a pet professional is like being a part of the family. Pet Care is more than just getting the job done, it's about giving your pet a good life. You can't just ask anyone for help because no one is going to know your pet, the way you do except for a pet professional. For me, it's about quality and trust over affordability and convenience. So I've created Pets of Las Vegas for both Owners and Professionals to UNITE. I'm not a veterinarian or specialist, but I know of the best ones in town who will care for your pet and not your wallet. I’m here as your neighbor and friend to tell you who is a pro, who you can trust, and how to provide your pet with the absolute overall best. I hope you enjoy the website and discover some things to help you through this moment in time with your best furry and fluffy friend!


Meet "The Real Pugs" of Las Vegas and their Corgi Cousins!



The pug who saved my life ❤️ 
Both of childhood dogs passed away within 3 months of each other in 2013 due to unexpected medical illnesses. I was depressed and really needed to fill my heart with the love of a new best friend. I was invited to apply as a Foster for the Southern Nevada Pug Rescue, which 3 months later I got the call asking if I could Foster an adult "black pug". I walked into the vet clinic to pick her up and there she was, just with her smile I knew she was my soulmate and best friend for life.



My mother and her friend found a fawn pug roaming the streets and not only did she have no collar on but she looked deathly ill. After a trip to the vet to confirm she had a microchip but no owner was registered plus a week of full meals to fatten her up, we knew she found us for a reason. Luna instantly became the yang to Lily's ying and we became a family of 3. My 'ol lady' as I love to call her, now lives for food, naps & snuggles. She loves to wake me up in the mornings by playing the drums on my face or barking ☺



At the time he walked into my life I was a regular volunteer for the Southern Nevada Pug Rescue. I received an email that a Puggle desperately needed a new home. His family had loved him since the day he was born but they could no longer afford to pay for his medical expenses as he was suffering from untreatable allergies. Thanks to the help of SNPR and Dr. Blakesley at Southern Hills Animal Hospital, Dixon has been with us for 3 years now hotspot and pain free! He's a total 'Mama's Boy' and he has fun doing a stance for food & treats! 🐶


Winston & Zelda

My older sister Cassandra is a Professional Dressage Rider and travels often for work. Currently she resides in Germany and during this time I get to become the "Corgi Mom" to my fun and playful niece & newphew duo. Zelda is a total diva just like my Lily, lives for food like Luna and Dixon has taught her his food stance. Winston is an old man with degenerative myelopathy. His illness doesn't stop him from living his life to it's fullest and he's one of the many reasons I started this website! 🐾
