Leslie is incredible! She is everything you wish for in a dog sitter, and more! She fell in love with our Newfoundland from the start and took such great care of him, including cleaning his ears and eyes and feet throughout the day and giving him allergy medicines. She checked in with us often, presented solutions to his itching problem, and sent pictures of him daily. On top of all of that, she is a ...
Leslie is so caring and has a good sense for the dogs. She had come to know my dogs so well. She recognized and identified that my Bina was not herself and called me right away. My Bina declined rapidly from a ruptured tumor in her spleen. Had Leslie not called me, Bina would not have spent her last night at home and her last hours in my arms. I am grateful that Leslie had ...
My dog, Ringo, loves his new sitter!!! Leslie was everything I could have hoped for--kind, gentle, firm, and highly responsible. I have already booked a second visit, and I'm so relieved not to have to leave my boy at a traditional kennel. Thank you Leslie!
Responsible dog lover with backyard

What Leslie would like to know about your dog
I like to have a chat with the owner in advance to ask questions so that I learn about their pet, her/his preferences, so that I can be prepared. Also, I do not accept any dogs which have aggressive behavior, (including biting and/or excessive barking problems,) are not house-broken, which are used to being the "alpha," which are not trained to follow basic commands, which jump up on furniture.
As I was mauled and attacked unprovoked by a pit bull, I will only accept a pit bull or pit bull mix if it is VERY docile and friendly and does NOT have the inbred viciousness many have. If I do accept it, my fee will be increased by $10 a day, and require a signed waiver that your dog has not bit anyone and that if he does you will accept full legal consequences.
I do not accept them do not accept any chihuahuas as every one I have ever met has an obnoxious, high-pitched bark which is too stress-inducing.
