About Leslie

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Board your dog on ten acres of puppy paradise, 45 minutes north of Toronto, 20 minutes south of Barrie. I'm a writer/composer, so I work at home, taking frequent breaks to exercise and entertain my pets and boarders. There is a half acre fenced in area behind the house, and another nine and a half acres beyond. My home is surrounded by forests, parks and rivers, all perfect for walks, swims and romps. It truly is doggy heaven!

My love affair with dogs was sparked by my uncle, who bred, trained and showed his German Shepherds in both conformation and obedience. I grew up, moved away from home and rescued my first dog, Penny, from the Humane Society. She went on to be featured in theatrical performances and TV commercials. My next dog, Jack, followed in Penny's pawprints, and he performed in films, TV commercials and stage plays. Now I live with Lexi, a retired Agility and Disc Champion, and Maggie, a 3-year-old Border Collie who's just beginning her competitive career in both Agility and Disc.

My Golden Retriever is so happy that I found Arden's Garden. Leslie and her partner are exceptional pet sitters, with lots of loving care given the dogs. The large garden and hiking trails are great for my active dog. My dog din't want to come home at the end of his vacation! I couldn't have found a better place!

Arden's Garden was the perfect match for our active 3 year old Vizsla while we were away on vacation. Leslie's home and property is literally an active dog's heaven. We have very few places we feel comfortable leaving our furry family member, so we are so happy to have found Leslie - we never once worried about the abundance of love, attention, care, and outdoor exercise our Vizsla got while we were away. We had one happy, tired dog, and one very carefree family vacation knowing she was in safe, competent, and caring hands. We will return and will recommend to our friends and family with dogs. The pictures and regular updates were great!

Our dog had so much fun at Leslie's house for the week. The pictures that she sent were great and it showed all the different activities our dog was engaged in everyday. It was evident that our dog was loved and a part of the family while she was there. I am glad that we chose Leslie's place and I am sure our dog can't wait until she can return again!
