Leah was a great walker! She was extremely responsive to my request and excellent in her communication. Our dog Max walked over to her right away on the first meeting and she was as sweet as be back to him. She asked all the proper questions and took notes. We only need a walker every once in while and as long as Leah is available we would use her.

By far my favorite dog walker!! So sweet with the pup and always follow instructions. Harley loved her and I wish she didn't move so I could have her around for a long time. Highly recommend Leah

Leah was absolutely INCREDIBLE!!! My pup, Bowie, is a recent rescue and he takes some time warming up to people.

Leah was so patient and warm-hearted with Bowie. She made sure he was well taken care of and ensured he felt comfortable in the setting. I’m so lucky to have found Leah on Rover.com! I came home to a very happy boy!

What Leah would like to know about your dog

I would love to know how your dogs are with other dogs, whether they have any allergies, and what their normal sleeping habits are. I love all breeds, but especially great big dogs! I grew up sharing tiny spaces with big Labradors, so I am prepared for your pup, big or small.

When Leah watches your pet

I love walking wherever a dog is most comfortable and usually let them lead for a bit so I can understand their territory. My favorite walks take me through nearby parks and beautiful scenery, and it's always fun to explore with your pup. If your dog is comfortable with a nearby dog park, I am always happy to play fetch and follow them around as they play with other furry friends.

If I get the chance to hang out with your dog over a couple of days, I'll make sure they're tired out during the day and ready to chill out at night. I'd love to lay around and pet their bellies as we recoup from a fun day of frolicking around.
