Leah was extremely responsible, caring, and attentive to our three dogs, all of whom have some type of special need. She kept in contact with us throughout our time away, sending pictures and funny stories. We will definitely ask Leah to dog sit again!

Leah B.
Thank you Jeff, love those crazy boys!

Loving pet care is here!

Hi! My name is Leah. I worked for one of Chicago's premier dog-walking and pet-sitting agencies for over a year and then decided to venture out independently. Being trained by top-tier pet care professionals has given me a lot of insight into working with all sorts of dogs with different personalities. I have experience with extended pet sits, administering medication, non-overnight pet sits, working with aggressive dogs and more. I live in Andersonville/Edgewater and ...

What Leah would like to know about your dog

When I stay with your dog, I love knowing a little about their age, routine, energy level, medical history/current issues, their friendliness towards people and other dogs, and their discipline routines. I am honestly happy to watch any dog that has a charming personality, so no breed preference with me! But I will admit that I hope to adopt a pomeranian/bichon friese mix one day!

When I stay with your dog at your house my only request is that wifi is available and that there is a comfortable place for me to sleep!

When Leah watches your pet

We set up a schedule of your dog's usual times for walks, feeding, and additional care. I make sure that your dog is walked and fed within an hour range of the times we've talked about. I also make sure your dog has a few hours of snuggling and playing each day, which is quite easy for me since I loooove to snuggle and play with dogs! I've been known to tire out even the craziest puppies. I like to check in with pet owners so that they know their little one is in good hands, so expect a few messages from me a day with 2-3 pics per day so you can see what we are up to :)

I love to take dogs with me places! If the dog I am watching is dog & people friendly (and with owner permission), I love to take them to pet-friendly stores and restaurants.
