About Leslie

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! My name is Leslie and I am a dog lady! First off, thank you for considering me to be trusted with your pets.

A little about me: In addition to our 4 dogs, I also foster for OK Humane. I work for OUPhysicians as a Research Management Coordinator and am subject to regular background checks by my employer.

We have approx. 1700 square feet of space in our historic home for your pet to roam, a beautiful tree-lined neighborhood for walks, plus a fenced backyard for potty breaks. We allow free-range indoor roaming while we are at work for pets that are potty trained. We can use either crates or diapers to help pets that are prone to accidents. We LOVE small playful dogs- our Scooby thinks he is tiny and likes to share his toys with his smaller, high-energy friends. All of our dogs are friendly and have not had any aggression issues. All of our dogs stay up to date on vaccinations and heartworm preventative and are seen regularly by our vet. We welcome reasonable accommodations or special requests- just ask! We promise to treat your pet like family and will send a daily text or email photo or video update from your pet. We can also use a GPS-enabled dog walking app that allows you to see a map, time info, and even where your pet relieved him or herself during the walk!

We are flexible and can accommodate your pets' needs. We work Monday thru Friday during the day, but can sometimes come home for mid-day potty breaks if your pet needs more frequent breaks. We usually are not gone for more than 2-3 hours at a time on weekends. I am a daily runner and can take your pet for a morning run up to 4 miles per day on weekdays or up to 20 miles on weekends. If your dog has a high energy level or is prone to chewing, barking, or separation anxiety, going for even a short run does wonders! Our dogs eat Nature's Recipe Limited Ingredient or Nature's Recipe Skin and Joint dry kibble. While we are happy to provide food, we recommend that you send food to avoid tummy aches.
house has literally "gone to the dogs". We have even arranged the furniture in our home to facilitate caring for pets.

Our guests usually sleep in our bedroom or our Dog Lounge, a large master bedroom we now use as a big open space to play with the dogs. In addition to our king sized bed, we have a full size futon, several XL dog beds, plus plenty of comforters, pillows, and toys. We usually let smaller dogs sleep in the bed with us or in a crate if they prefer a crate at night. We allow pets on our large sectional and chairs in our living area. We do not leave our pets unattended outside for longer than a potty break (approx 15 minutes).

We are happy to administer your pet's oral or topical medication.

Restrictions:
We cannot care for aggressive dogs or dogs with current flea, tick, or other contagious infections. All pets must be up to date with rabies, parvovirus, and bordatella vaccinations. We also cannot care for pets who destructively chew unless they are allowed to be crated when unattended.

We require a meet and greet prior to booking for the safety of all pets. The Meet and Greet allows us to talk about your pet's schedule, let him or her explore the house with you, and allows us to introduce our dogs. It really helps our guests to not have anxiety on drop off day if they have had a chance to explore the house with theirfamily. Many pet parents have said the Meet and Greet put their mind at ease since they were able to see how much fun their pets were going to have!

I am CPR and AED/Basic Life Support Provider certified by the American Heart Association (human certification) with knowledge of applying CPR principles to pets. I have also completed the American Red Cross First Aid course.

To our past guests: Thank you so much for your sweet reviews. We loved getting to know all of your pets and have so many fun memories of each of them!

Leslie is super sweet and loves the animals. Roxy looked like she was having a good time and made new friends she got to play with. We did our meet and greet and was willing to let my nieghebor drop off and pick up my dog. Thanks again Leslie! I feel like I'll need to book once a month so Roxy can see her friends lol.

Our dog had a great time at Leslie's! You can tell that Leslie and her family absolutely LOVE dogs and I knew Abby would be in great hands. She had a great time playing with all of Leslie's dogs and came home worn out!
Leslie was great, my black lab had a blast while staying at her home. I felt that Leslie truly cared for my dog as if it were her own. I feel very comfortable leaving my dog with her while I'm not home. In the future, I will continue working with Leslie, she is highly recommended.
