Leah was an amazing sitter for my dog, Kaya. She was so incredibly thoughtful and asked so many questions about Kaya's habits, needs and behavior. I was very anxious to leave Kaya with a sitter since this would be our first time apart since I adopted her, but Leah's kindness and updates over the weekend made me feel 100% comfortable with leaving Kaya with her. I'm very happy to have found a reliable and caring ...

Leah was fantastic! She was very responsive from the very beginning and update me with texts and photos the entire time she was with my dog. My dog, Otto, is still a puppy and can be a bit of a handful at times and Leah handled everything in stride. I'll definitely be contacting Leah again in the future for my dog care needs.

Dog-Lover in Lakeview!

I have been on Rover since March 2016 and I have loved it! I took a bit of a break while I was working a more demanding day job, but I'm back and ready to spend time with pets! I grew up with two cats and around my aunt's dogs. While I don't have a dog yet, I volunteer and foster with Alive Rescue in Roscoe Village. Being around dogs and cats always brightens my ...

What Leah would like to know about your dog

I am not allowed to have aggressive breeds in my apartment, but I am fine with taking care of them at the owner's home.

Before dog sitting, I'd like to know how your dog handles being around other dogs and children so I can be prepared for taking them on walks. I'd also like to know how and when the owner administers treats, what behaviors the owner may be working on correcting, how often the dog gets fed, and any other dietary restrictions the owner's dog may have.

I would like to know how long you can leave your dog alone for, and whether or not you crate your dog while left alone. I am unavailable during the day on weekdays, so I would only be able to board your dog during the week if they're used to be left alone during the day.

When Leah watches your pet

I love to go on walks and explore my neighborhood around the Lakeview/North Center area. If the owner is okay with taking his or her dog to dog parks, I'm happy to take dogs to the Challenger Dog Park or the Montrose Dog Beach (weather permitting). I'm a huge fan of playing catch when the weather is nice or snuggling on the couch when the weather's not-so-nice. I love having a furry cuddle buddy around the house!
