About Leslie

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, my name is Leslie and I have been a part of the Dogvacay family for 3 years. Due to a change in my circumstances I am no longer boarding animals in my home but I am very happy to come stay with your pet in your home!! I think this is a good decision for the pets too since hey are most comfortable in their familiar surroundings.
I am a substitute teacher so I would be away probabaly 3 to 4 days Mon-Fri until the middle of June. I am available on school vacations as well.

Leslie is a delight! We have no concerns leaving our dog with her. She's very prompt with communication and incredibly flexible for drop offs and pick ups. She seems to really care about each dog she watches.
My husband and I were extremely pleased how well Archie did with Leslie. It was such a relief to know that Archie was happy and well cared for.

Leslie is competent, caring, and friendly. She texted me each day to let me know how Archie was doing. I would highly recommend her services!
Casper's stay with Leslie and her family was great and couldn't have been any better. He settled in as I expected and enjoyed it as much as being home. I highly recommend Leslie.
Leslie was very accommodating with our travel schedule. Her whole family was friendly and interacted with our three dogs. She kept me updated on their well-being throughout the week. Best of all, my dogs were happy! I will definitely book with Leslie next time we are out of town.
We are so thankful we found Leslie! As the owners of 2 very spoiled pugs, we were apprehensive about bringing them anywhere. Leslie and her family put us at ease by just being themselves, very caring and genuine dog lovers. We brought our girls to meet Leslie ahead of time and saw immediately that they were comfortable and we were happy to see a fenced in yard for them to run and play. We would recommend Leslie to anyone looking for a kind and loving place for their dogs to stay. The piece of mind that Leslie gave to us that our girls were happy and well cared for means the world.
We couldn't be happier with the gracious and extremely hospitable service that Leslie provides! She is beyond sweet and accommodating and our dogs had a wonderful time at her house. Highly recommend!
Leslie watched my dog for 5 days while I went out of town. Leslie was very good about giving me updates every day on how my dog was doing. She did have problems with Beannie going to the bathroom in the house and she worked hard to come up with a solution to stop Beannie from peeing on her furniture. She was sympathetic to Beannie's feelings . She realized Beannie missed us , plus his routine and his surroundings were different. I thank her and Beannie thanks her for her kindness and understanding during his stay at her house.
Leslie and her family were wonderful and accommodating! We'll definitely be using them again- thanks for everything!
Our dog, Josie, had a wonderful time and was very well cared for. Leslie was extremely flexible and responsive.
Great visit. Sully is home and transitions easily to Leslie and home again! Thank you.
My dog and I love, love, love, Leslie and her family! They are the very best and I look forward to many visits with them! The 2nd time my dog went to stay with them, he began yipping with joy as he and I pulled into their driveway! He has only done that before when we visit my mother's farm because he loves it so much! So I took that as the best recommendation a dog could give his sitters! They were so accommodating with some special requests I had! Their love for animals shines through! They treated my dog like one of their own!
I trust them completely with my most important member of the family!
Sully's home away from home. Thank you, Leslie!
Sullys return home is always smooth. He loves going to Leslie's house. Transitioning well to her and back again home!
Another happy weekend with Leslie! Thank you, Leslie. It's good to have such a caring place for our pup:)
Leslie is the very best. She and her family took wonderful care of our Ella.
From my first email question about our bigger dog to the immediate response, our overall satisfaction was 110%. I would recommend Leslie to anyone who needed a dog sitter. We had a meet and greet before hand wth our 2 dogs , just to make sure everyone got along. Their pooch Harry was just a cool laid back dog. All went well. It felt like we were visiting friends, warm and inviting. In fact we will be using Dog-vacay and Leslie again in November. keep up the good work.

Leslie was awesome!! The reservation was totally last minute and she was so accommodating! She took great care of Gizmo while we were away and emailed me updates. You can really tell she is an animal lover from the moment you meet her! I would highly recommend her.
Our dogs came home healthy and happy after a week with Leslie and her family. The family was very nice and accommodating, and Leslie sent regular updates with pictures. This was the first time we never had to worry about our dogs while we were on vacation, and we'll definitely be repeat customers!
She and her family were wonderful with Stella. Very pleased with my choice! Will use her again next time I go on vacation! Kudos! Thank you so much!
Our pup was very well cared for and returned home calm and relaxed after his stay. Great experience!
Sully was well cared for and calm upon returning home. This home was a safe and loving place for him!
We are so grateful that Leslie took a chance on taking our very anxious girl Belle. What a wonderful stay she had, she was expectedly nervous at first but eventually settled right down. The picture updates were very reassuring to us while away. Leslie and family showered Belle with love and we know she was well cared for. We will definitely be back! Thanks again Leslie!
We were going out of town last minute and needed a sitter for our dog. The DogVacay hosts near our house were booked so we looked into one along the way on our trip. Leslie was kind enough to open her home to our furry little guy without meeting him beforehand, but online it sounded like her dog and ours were alike in so many ways. She was kind enough to send some updates and when we picked him up 2 days later we could see that he was content and very much at home with Leslie's family. I would highly recommend her!
Leslie is awesome! We would highly recommend her (and her family) and will definitely be using her again. She was very loving with our 2 little girls and you could tell how much she loves dogs, and treats them like her own. She kept us updated all weekend, while we were away, with texts and pictures. We knew that our dogs were in great hands! She was amazing :)
Leslie and her family are wonderful caregivers and made our dog feel right at home. They were not only attentive to our dog's needs, but also to those little things that make life good for him. Thank you!!
What a find! Leslie did a great job.
Leslie was my lifesaver. I have a senior dog who is a good boy, but needs to feel like he has full attention.

Besides leaving him with family, I have never had a good experience with boarding or a kennel. My dog has always come home sick or stressed out to the max, usually taking days to get back to normal. At this age, I don't have the heart to put him through that, which becomes tough when we need to travel.

From the moment I walked into to Leslie's home, I felt comfortable and at ease leaving my KZ there. KZ felt right at home and Leslie and her family were so welcoming.

I didn't worry once while I was away. When I went to pick him up, he had made himself right at home. KZ was his normal happy self. He was relaxed, normal and well cared for. What a relief.

They have a wonderful yard, fully fenced in and KZ loved being outside there and roaming around.

Thank you Leslie, Bert and Harry and the rest of the family. We will see you soon!
We've never had someone outside the family watch Sweet Pea so we were a little apprehensive at first but she had excellent care. Leslie was prompt with messages, texted us pictures, and was very flexible with drop-off/pick-up times. The whole family took time to welcome Sweet Pea into their home and treated our dog like their own.

We've had Sweet Pea stay with Leslie twice now and have had zero problems and excellent service each time. We couldn't be happier with her time with Leslie and her family!

Highly recommended and definitely reserving her again!
Leslie watched Bella for one week while I was vacationing. We had a meet and greet prior to this. From the moment I met Leslie and Bella's new "home away from home" I felt confident this was a great match. I was not going to be available by phone while away but after the meet and greet I knew Bella was going to be well cared for and loved. And she was!!! Now I can go away with a peace of mind knowing my precious Bella will be in excellent hands. Thank you Leslie.
Leslie's service for us was the most amazing ever!!! She was very compasionate with a lot of our concerns, and she stayed in contact with me every day regarding my dog's stay.
We had a trip to Syracuse on Feb. 17, 2014 with my Natalie. Natalie stayed in Leslie's home. They are wonderful people. Natalie had a good time with them.Leslie never delayed to answer my questions by email or by text massage. When I sent Natalie to her house, she asked every details about Natalie's behavior to make sure if Natalie needs special take care. She kept texting me about Natalie to make me very comfortable.
Thank you, Leslie and your family.
Strong recommendation.
Leslie and her family were delightful and Ella was comfortable safe and happy. Strongly recommend.
Leslie has a great house and a huge fenced backyard. It was easy to tell Leslie and her family love Gigi. I will never leave Gigi with anyone but Leslie again.
Leslie and her family were fantastic with our beagle Bailey. During the week,they texted us pictures of her so we would know she was ok. We felt very comfortable leaving her there. Their home was so nice with a little sunroom in back great for the dog to nap. They walked her and have a big back yard. They really have that genuine caring feeling for dogs and understand that sometimes they can misbehave. Good thing cuz Bailey got a whole package of their dog rolls they had out for a BarBQ! Sorry guys. We really appreciated their caring for her. It gave us peace of mind to enjoy our vacation. We would reserve with Leslie again no doubt! She was a life saver.
I picked Leslie L. primarily because I have two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Max and Pennie, and Leslie has Harry, also a Cavalier. It was a perfect fit! Leslie and her family took wonderful care of Max and Pennie! In fact, they were better groomed when I picked them up than when I dropped them off! I would highly recommend Leslie to anyone looking for a happy home to house their pups!
Leslie and her family were an absolute God-send and I can't say enough wonderful things about Sofie's stay. She was a happy, healthy and spoiled rotten dog from the moment she arrived to the time I picked her up 6 days later. I would highly recommend this loving, caring, kind and awesome family to take care of any dog and hope Sofie will have the opportunity to return many times again! They provided me with total peace of mind knowing my baby was well cared for and didn't even miss me!
What a wonderful family! Leslie was very accommodating and the picture she sent showed Emma all smiles - if dogs can do that. I would certainly leave Emma with Leslie again. They treated her like their own pet. I felt so much better knowing Emma was with such caring people.
The host family is pleasant and cheerful. They took good care of our dog and helped him mix well with their dog, Harry. They also made sure that our dog eat well and were eager to play with him.They used text messages and sent photos to keep us posted of how our dog was doing. We felt relieved as we sensed that our dog was in good hands. We will consider using this host family for our dog when we have vacation again even though they are not so close to where we live.
