About Leah

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My pet-friendly home is close to downtown, so it doesn't take long for me to get home from work and get the dogs to the park!

I am a dog lover with many years of experience handling dogs of all behaviour levels. I first got into dog sitting when I lost my last fur baby to cancer, and didn't like the feeling of an empty house. Since then, I rescued Bonnie, and together we enjoy hosting all types of furry friends in our home!

I have the luxury of working from home a few days throughout the week, so it minimizes the time your dog is alone without supervision.

Bonnie is super affectionate and playful, but, being an abused rescue dog, she is unsure when meeting new people/dogs. Once she's comfortable, she is respectful of other dogs' space and happy to share her home!

Bonnie and I are often found walking in West Hillhurst or on our frequent trips to Edworthy Park to hang out with other local dogs.

I am also happy to provide:
* Updates on your pet while you are away via Skype, text, or photos.
* Separated eating areas, sleeping areas, and exercise if required.
* Often I post doggy visitor pics on my Twitter page @mill0344

Our experience with Leah was great! She sent us great updates, and more reassuringly, we had a nice long chat about expectations, the dogs' personalities and needs, and how that would work with how she usually cared for guest pets.
Second time using Leah and another great experience - the boys were very well taken care of. She is also very accommodating with drop off and pick up times. I will definitely continue to use her services when she is available. Thanks!
Leah was extremely flexible, and nice. I could tell as soon as my dog met her that he was going to be in good hands. He made himself right at home. He got adequate exercise, and was treated like her own. I receive pictures and Messages. I would definitely take Jud back.
Leah was great with our 2 fur babies! She sent us pictures while we were away and treated them like her own dogs! Thanks Leah!
Thank you Leah for taking care of Molly! She was well cared for and I loved receiving the pictures of her stay with you!
Leah is amazing! She took my short notice reservation and made time for a meet and greet prior to dropping off my dog Brownie. I have a rescue dog who is very hesitant about new dogs and people. Leah immediately knew how to approach him and how to introduce him to her home and her dog, Bonnie. She has a calming nature that will immediately put any dog at ease. My dog had a wonderful time while staying with Leah and Bonnie. She sent several pictures (and updates) of Brownie and Bonnie playing together. Just knowing that Brownie was having a good time with such a gentle person and awesome dog-friend made my vacation 100% more enjoyable. I highly recommend Leah. She is fantastic!
Thanks so much! Leah sent a bunch of photos of my pups having fun which made my vacation much more care free. She definitely kept them entertained, as soon as they got home they went straight to bed!
Leah did an awesome job taking care of Phoebe while I was away. She sent lots of pictures from the dog park and walks/hikes, and Phoebe was very happy and tired out when she came home! I will be booking again the next time I am out of town.
Leah was great! It was my first time using this service and I have to say, I will be using it in the future! When I met Leah, she was very kind and helpful. Coco felt at ease at her house! Thank you Leah, I will be using your services in the near future.
Leah was a fantastic host! She was very conscientious and caring, and took the time to go over all of Bandit's habits, any concerns, etc. Communication was terrific, so I knew that my little guy was in good hands during my entire trip and I didn't have to worry. Bandit came home happy, but I think he was also a little sad to leave his buddy Bonnie! Thanks so much!!!!
Leah took amazing care of Dozer for a couple of days, she sent me lots of pictures and kept me up to date on how Dozer was doing. Thanks so much Leah!
This was Tilly's first visit with Leah. She has come back really relaxed and from the photos Leah sent seems to have had a fantastic time. I would recommend Leah to anyone. Thank you Leah for looking after Tilly so well !!
Absolutely wonderful stay! He was well cared for and a happy puppy. Would definitely book again
Leah and her fiancee did a great job. Our dog's don't think wanted to leave
Leah was an awesome host for Wyatt! She is very calm, friendly, and an attentive host that put my mind at ease from the get-go. I was lucky to book her on such short notice. I loved the daily photos and updates-- I could see that Wyatt was going on fun walks and making fast friends with Bonnie, the resident sharpei. In fact, he spent tonight playing with the toy he had brought along to his Dogvacay, ignoring his usual favorites-- he must miss his hosts! I would definitely recommend Leah and I would certainly like Wyatt to stay with her again in the future! Thanks again!
Thanks again Leah
This was a very good first experience, very attentive and Titan was happy when we picked him up!
Keiko seemed very happy with his visit :)
Excellent with dogs. very private, quiet home. perfect for small dogs. Highly recommended. Will be using Leah again. I was immediately at ease when leaving my dog with her.
