About Leana

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

My name is Leana and I've lived my whole life with dogs. In the past 13 years, my husband Tony and I raised our sweet pitbull Blanca (the white dog snoozing on our porch in my pictures) from young pup to arthritic senior. She was the love of our lives and passed away on March, 8th of 2016. After losing Blanca, we've found that our lives are too empty and quiet without a wonderful furr-baby around. When your dog is here, you can trust that we'll give them all the love and care that we gave our baby Blanca for so many years. Please check out what we offer to make you and your dogs more comfortable during their stay:

- FIRST TIME VACAY: a meet-n-greet prior to vacay is REQUIRED! It's important to see if your dog's needs can be met during their stay with us and also give you the chance to get to know us and ask questions. So, don't be afraid to schedule a meet-n-greet! It's FREE, we're very friendly, and we keep lots of boiled chicken on hand to sweeten the meet with your pup(s)!!
- Proof of up-to-date vaccinations, flea treatments, and NO ongoing flea issues.
- Dogs MUST be fully house-trained (no pads, etc).
- Dogs MUST be friendly with other dogs and people.

- Meds: we can administer vet prescribed meds/post-surgical physical therapy.
- Emergency: 10 minute drive from Northtowns 24-hour Vet Emergency Services.
- Warm weather: a large, fully-fenced backyard and covered patio for shade.
- Cold weather: a warm living room with a big rug and pillows for cuddle parties!
- UNLIMITED potty breaks!
- 24/7 Supervision: I'm a housewife who's home all day with access to my own car.
- Husband is a registered nurse and is home evenings/weekends.
- Senior dog friendly: we have taken care of dogs with arthritis, multiple potty break requirements, and multiple medication requirements.
- Pitbull friendly: Blanca was a pitty, so we understand the difficulty of finding safe accommodations for these so-called "dangerous" breeds. We've taken care of many powerful breeds (Pitbulls, German Shepherds, etc.) so we know what to expect when it comes to establishing boundaries that will make your dog feel comfortable, relaxed, and cared for.

- PROOF of vaccinations and flea treatment (if flea treatment is ongoing). Dog will NOT be boarded without this documentation.
- Dog food for the duration of your dog's stay.
- Dog leash & collar (no need for poopy bags - we have TONS).
- Dog bed, pillow, or something that smells like you to remind your dog of home.
- Dog crate (if desired).
- Medications (if required).
- Toys or any other fun items your dog loves!

Thanks and we look forward to having your furr-baby stay with us!

I've known Leana for more than 17 years. She grew up with dogs of a variety of breeds and sizes and knows what it takes to raise and provide them with attention, love and care.

It's been evident for a long time that she always formed positive, strong-bonded relationships with her dogs. Leana is easily attuned and sensitive to a dog's needs and wants. She is fun and engaging for your dog, and knows how to make sound decisions and adapt her skills to different dog personalities and situations in order to provide each of them with the best care and experience. If you're in need of dropping off your dogs, Leana will welcome them to her clean, comfortable home, and a non-stressful environment.

The qualifications of a dog sitter come naturally to Leana, as does her approach/interaction and enthusiasm towards dogs. I don't hesitate in saying that she makes for a genuine and wonderful dog sitter!

Leana was great with communication setting up our meet and greet as well as pick up and drop off. Although it was our first time using this service and we were nervous to leave our two labs with someone we didn't know, after meeting with Leana and her husband we felt very comfortable. The boys seemed to have a great week with them and were made to feel very at home. Leana was great about sending pictures, videos and messages every day to keep us updated. Would definitely leave them with her again.
I wish I could give her a 15/10 star rating but unfortunately 5/5 will have to do. Being a sitter on this website myself, I know how difficult and complicated it can be as well as extremely time consuming and busy. Leana updated me everyday without even asking, and for the first couple of days really put my mind at ease and updated me constantly about how they are doing. It was my first time having my dogs with a sitter and I'm so glad I chose her. I will definitely be a repeat client if she is still sitting by the time we go on our next vacation. The dog's seemed so happy with her… it seemed like they didn't even miss us. She definitely puts the "vacay" in
I'm always happy to leave my dog with Leana, because he comes back happy, relaxed, and obviously well cared for.
