About Lesley

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
***Please note: at this time I am only accepting reservations for golden retrievers, labs and doodles.***

Who we are: We both love dogs and consider our eight-year old golden retriever like the child we do not have. Both of us have grown up around pets and animals our whole lives and will be sure to give your pet the best care and attention.

We actually used DogVacay for the first time for our dog and had such an excellent experience that we wanted to open our home up to others who may be needing a loving home to leave their pup with while they are away on vacation.

What we Offer: We both work from home, so we are pretty much around 24/7.
-1 long walk per day
-One-on-One Playtime
-Daily updates of the fun your pup is having

Our Home: We live in quiet neighborhood in a 3-bedroom home, with a medium sized backyard that is partially fenced. So there is plenty of space for your pup to have tons of fun outside.

Our current resident dog is a loving, eight-year-old Golden Retriever.

I love having Lesley as our pupply host. Our Goldens come home so happy!
It was a last minute trip, one night. leslie was so gracious to take Lady. I think Lady was a little "nervous" but Leslie made it easy. She has kept Lady before, which I know helped my girl feel more comfy! Thans again Leslie !
First time Bunker had been away from family. We were apprehensive since it was a week. A great experience for all. Bunker had playmates which he loved & he was a happy camper. Lesley sent us pictures of Bunker which we looked forward to each day. We were immediately comfortable with Lesley & liked the home environment for Bunker. Now that we have met Lesley through DogVacay, we will feel better about leaving Bunker. Bunker has a second home.
Our golden retriever, Paisley is always super excited to go and stay with Lesley and her family! In fact, the moment I say "Reign" her ears perk up and she knows we are going there! Paisley has stayed with Lesley for a week at a time...many times, and it still is truly a home away from home for her. Again... Peace of mind is priceless! I absolutely give Lesley 5 stars.
What can I say. Another great visit. Our dog actually gets excited when we pull up to her house.
Another great visit with Lesley!
We are so happy with Lesley. Our Golden Girls, Daisy and Duchess had such a great time there. We received regular pics and videos that put us at ease that they were happy. :)
Lesley is awesome with our golden retriever. Would highly recommend. Mark
Our Golden Retriever Rocky is 9 years old and has stayed in many kennels over the years. This was our first time with Lesley and it was the best experience for Rocky ever. A straight forward 5 Pawsome. We will only go to Lesley henceforth.
My dog had another great visit with Lesley. I am so glad we found her. It is much easier for me to travel now that I know Lesley will take good care of Hudson while I am away.
We are new snowbirds to the area and needed a place to board our Chocolate Lab for a few days.After our meet & greet with Lesley, our lab Cyndi felt very comfortable as did my wife & I. Lesley was terrific and the photos & daily updates were awesome. We Will definitely use Lesley again & we would highly recommend her. Thank you Lesley!
Lesley once again took wonderful care of our dog Rowdy. He loved romping with two other Golden Retrievers during his stay. We appreciated the photos Lesley sent us of Rowdy socializing with them.
As always, my pup had a great time with Lesley!
Piper, our 4 year old golden, loves going to Leslie. Leslie does an excellent job taking care of her and I always feel relaxed when I drop Piper off knowing that she will receive excellent care and plenty of attention. I am sure that she loves it there and enjoys the company of Leslie's dog Rayne. If you are looking for a loving home where you will not have to worry about the safety and comfort of your pet, this is the place to be.
Lesley took wonderful care of our pet. We will certainly use her services again when we need to board him.
Lesley was great she sent pictures of Bella playing and was very nice when dropping and picking up Bella. She truly is a great person to leave your dog with. I would definitely use again if I needed a dog sitter.
Lesley is great! We're new to the area and needed to board Sadie while I took some training classes and my wife is at work. I found DogVaycay while searching for local kennels. So glad I did! Lesley was available and is close by, so it's super convenient. She and her husband are very nice folks with a beautiful house and fenced yard, so we knew Sadie would be safe to go outside. Their dog Raine is a perfect gentleman and shared his home with Sadie kindly. Can't say enough. It's great to leave your dog with folks and not worry!
My pup had another wonderful doggie vacay with Lesley. She sent me daily updates with pictures and videos. Knowing my pup was happy and being well cared for made my trip much easier and less stressful than my trips have been in the past. Thank you, Lesley!
They were wonderful!! Leslie & Tony welcomed Lady into their home like she was a family member. It was so nice to know our girl was being "cared" for by people that love dogs, rather than in a kennel for days waiting to be walked. The bonus was getting a good morning photo every day, among other updates throughout the day! So glad we gave this a chance. We will surely be taking Lady to stay with Leslie next time we have to go out of town!
Longest visit we had to leave our dog and another successful trip knowing our beagle was completely cared for. Thank you for all the videos and pics. Our family uses Lesley every time.
Lesley's home was a perfect fit for my Hudson! He had a great time, and I felt very comfortable leaving him in her care. She was very responsive and kept me up-to-date throughout my trip. She was also very flexible about pickup and drop-off times. I highly recommend her. I will definitely ask her to watch my pup whenever I have to travel and leave him behind. In the past I always worried about my dog when I travelled, but I think those days are behind me thanks to Lesley.
Peace of mind is priceless. Lesley's home became the perfect environment for our 2 year old, super active, highly energetic, high maintenance, golden retriever, Paisley. We could not have have been more comfortable leaving her in their care.
Another great trip ! Thanks Leslie for taking care of our beagle. We love Dog Vacay !
Excellent dog sitter and photographer ,sent many beautiful photos and slow motion action video. My dog Daphne had a great time with Lesley ! Thank you so much for taking good care of Daphne.
Another great visit and stay! We will be back again soon.
My dog has separation anxiety, so I was worried. She did awesome with Lesley. I get pictures texted daily, which makes me feel better about having to leave my dog behind. I strongly recommend.
Hundley is quite a handful, but he had a great time at Lesley's. They took him for walks and her husband even took him for a bike ride around the neighborhood.
Lacie had another great stay with Lesley. We are so very thankful to have found Lesley- it's so wonderful to leave Lacie where she is comfortable & loved.
WOW! I can't even begin to tell you what an awesome experience this has been. My husband & I moved here from Idaho just a month ago & had no one to watch our 2 year old Golden Retriever. After being disappointed with the area "pet resorts" I stumbled on DogVacay- We met Lesley and her Golden and knew we had found a perfect fit. Lesley and her husband have a lovely home & it's obvious they love dogs. Lacie had a great Vacay & so did we. Lesley sent us pics every day & it didn't even look like Lacie missed us! We are so thankful to have found Lesley thru Dog Vacay!
Lesley did an amazing job with Wizard and Albert. I am so glad that we found her!!! We had many updates and photos during our vacation. I am very thankful! :)
Lesley was great! I couldn't have asked for anything more. I was a little apprehensive in using this service but after my meet and greet both Lesley and her husband assured me there was nothing to worry about. And...they were right. I know my dog is a handful and he has issues, but they worked around that. The daily pictures/text put my mind at ease that he was having a good time. Probably had more fun than me! I would definitely recommend Lesley if your looking to have your pup receive the best care and attention one could have. Met my expectations and more.
I found myself in a last-minute pinch for cog boarding services when I was informed (the day of our departure) that the vacation rental home we reserved was not pet friendly. Since I was not in my home town, I took to Google and found this site. I contacted Lesley G, and she was so much more than accommodating in her fast response times, and willingness to take my dog in within less than two hours of being contacted. Lesley and her husband were absolutely lovely, and loving to my pup. They even sent us pics throughout the week of their dog and mine having a great time. I had a wonderful first experience with and Lesley and would recommend both for someone in need of a temporary loving place to stay for their pup.
We recently moved to the area and thought Dog Vacay would be a wonderful option for our beagle. Lesley was awesome. We loved the daily text pictures of our dog. When we picked him up I could tell there was no anxiety at all from his 4 day visit. I like the fact we could leave him in a home environment and he had their dog to play with also. Thank you so much for opening your home and helping other families. We will be back for sure.
