About Leigh

19 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome to DogVacay, and thank you for your interest in me! I kindly ask that you read my listing in it's entirety, to learn more about me, my rates and my requirements. This makes the process go much more smoothly for everyone! I try to be as transparent as possible, but please don't hesitate to message me with any questions.

Please note:

1) If you are a new client, I require a meet and greet to make sure you have a great DogVacay experience! Because of this, I do not accept last-minute bookings for new clients. Sorry!

2) Please check my calendar for availability prior to messaging me. Include your desired dates in your message, so I can make sure I am available. Please also include dropoff and pickup times, as this *may* affect your rate.

3) Your dog(s) MUST have a collar and an ID.

4) Please let me know if your dog is not spayed/ neutered, is not up-to-date on vaccinations, or is not dog-friendly, as this will affect whether I can sit other dogs during your dog's stay.

5) I can sit up to 2 dogs at a time. If you have 2 dogs, please check with me first to make sure I can accommodate.
------------------------------------------------
***RATES***

Usual rate = $25 a night
Holiday rate = $30 a night

In some cases, you may be charged a pro-rated fee for extra time. For example, if you drop off Saturday morning and pickup Sunday evening, you will be charged for 1 night plus 1 day. This typically only applies to shorter stays.

Now about me! :)

My name is Leigh, I am a 33 year old female professional living in the South Norcross/ Tucker area. I own a spacious, clean home with a secure, fenced backyard.

I share my home with 2 other roommates and a cat named Sake. Sake is quiet, sweet and a bit shy, but she is dog-friendly. She would never be left alone with your dog unsupervised. If your dog is not cat-friendly or you are not sure, my roommate will keep Sake in his room during your dog's stay.

I've been a dog owner for over 19 years, and I will make sure your pup gets lots of love, attention, play time and exercise! I can offer grooming services such as brushing, bathing and nail-filing, and I can also administer medications. I am pet CPR/ First Aid certified, and the VCA Dekalb-Gwinnett Animal Emergency Hospital is only 1 mile from my home. Have peace of mind knowing your pup is in good hands :)

I offer daily walks for pups that know how to heel. If your pup is unruly on the leash, we can play fetch in the yard!

I've fostered for a local dog rescue, volunteered at shelters, and have watched several dogs in my home with happy & satisfied owners! You'll get a picture of your dog every day :)

I have a large crate in the main living area and your dog will be crated indoors when I am not in the home, to ensure its safety. If you have a larger dog, I have a large master bathroom (puppy-proofed) as an alternative to crating. You are also free to bring your own crate if desired.

I work during the week, so am gone anywhere from 7-8 hours during weekdays. I am generally home most of the weekend.

*I ask that all guest dogs are crate-trained and house-trained.* (This means they will go into the crate easily with a treat, they will not chew up bedding, they will not bark or whine excessively while in the crate, and that they know to go potty outside.) When I am home your pup will have free range of the home, with supervision. At night your pup will sleep in my room in a doggy bed :) I have a large dog bed, but you may also bring your own.

It is recommended that all dogs be vaccinated for Bordatella and Rabies.

Leigh was excellent! We are already making plans to use her in the future. Wonderful wonderful person!
Leigh was great. She got to know about our dog Phoebe before her stay to make sure it was a good fit. Phoebe is an older dog and she had a great experience spending 3 nights with Leigh and her dog. Leigh was great and we would highly recommend her to anyone.

She is great .Cody(3yrs old lab) has been staying with her for many times since he is very young. Brought Cody's cage to her place for a couple of times but she told me no need to bring because she doesn't use it. So I normally bring only his bed.She has a little shiba mix "Pepper" and get along with Cody well too. Cody loves play in her fenced in back yard. She is very flexible with the time and response very quick.

Reina absolutely loved the vacation she had with Leigh! Leigh even taught her a new trick She was great! She got along well with Pepper! Will definitely book with her again! !
She was able to accommodate our short notice request. She did a meet and greet the day we contacted her. She was good at communicating with us. She send us a photo during the day. She allowed us to do an early drop off and I pick up. No issues or concerns. It was a great experience.

Leigh was flexible and responsive! She has a clean home with a nice spacious yard for the pups to play in. She was easy to communicate with and sent us pictures all but one day of our week-long trip. There was a video one day, which put us at ease since our dog Camile was clearly being taken care of and happy. Cammie enjoyed playing with Pepper and to the best of my knowledge, Leigh provided the services promised including following Cam's feeding schedule and taking her on a daily walk. It was very reassuring to know that Cammie was in good hands, and Leigh was pleasant for the human interactions as well. Thank you, Leigh, we will keep you in mind for Cammie's next vacay!

I was pleasantly surprised with my overall experience with Leigh. From the beginning, I was a challenge due to the last minute nature of my request. Leigh was very helpful and accommodating. Upon arriving, my dog was immediately comfortable in Leigh's home, with her and her dog. Leigh was diligent in providing regular text updates w/ photos. When I picked my dog up, she was in a great mood and seemed to have really enjoyed her stay.

I was very happy with Leigh and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a suitable, loving environment for their dog.

Absolutely wonderful dog sitter ever. At first we took our dog - Lola to meet with Leigh and her family and it was very pleasant and easy going experience. So we decided to leave Lola there for couple days, since we felt she was in safe and loving hands. Every day they send us an update on Lola and how she was doing, which give me peace of mind. Unfortunately due to the bad weather our flight was delayed for couple of hours but they did mind to keep Lola and stayed up till we landed safely and pick her up. Thank you so very much. Will defiantly take Lola to them again without hesitation.

Leigh was very exceptional with Freddy. He was sad when he had to leave even after he got home. I know he was treated with care and love while I was gone and would definitely recommend Leigh to anyone. I will definitely use her again. Freddy has made some new friends!

Leigh was an excellent host! I could tell that she was a dog lover judging by the way that she treated her own. I felt safe leaving my dog Ace with her, and to make things better, she sent pictures while I was away. If you are ever in need of a dog sitter, I would recommend Leigh anytime!

Leigh was wonderful. She made us very comfortable that our dog would be well taken care of. Leigh updated us each day with pics. She made it very easy for us to enjoy our vacation knowing that our pet was having at least as much fun as we did!
