About Leigha

11 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there! My name is Leigha, I'm married and a home owner. I have working with animals since I was 10 yrs old. I'm currently a pet groomer and have pet sitting experience. I've worked at vet clinics,kennels, grooming salons and horse stables. I'm experienced in giving medication and cleaning/ treating wounds. I know how to identify seizures and how to comfort those who experience them.
We have a large home in a great neighborhood. We have a huge enclosed backyard where dogs can play and explore. There is a doggy door in our sunroom with access to the yard. We have an Akita and a cat ourselves. Our Akita is extremely friendly and she is always looking for a buddy to play with.
If your pet isn't good with others, that is ok too. We have extra rooms and baby gates where we can keep them apart. I offer a comfortable space for your animal and my full attention to their needs including anxiety, medication, feeding, exercise, ect.
If you prefer I also make house calls. I will visit your home 2 to 3x a day to care for your pet. This includes and not limited to potty breaks, medication, feeding, walking and care and affection.
Please feel free to ask any questions!

Look forward to meeting you!!

Very nice. Kept me updated
Leigha was great! I know my pups had a great time because they didn't want to leave! Leigha sent me a message while I was away to let me know that everything was going well. It was nice to be updated on how they were doing. I would definitely recommend her if you are looking for a sitter. I already have her booked again for Thanksgiving!

We had an excellent experience boarding our Great Dane with Leigha! Leigha, her husband, and her fur babies were very warm and kind towards our girl. Leigha's resident dog, Nami, is incredibly sweet, patient, and not at all dominating. I could tell that Leigha listened to the particulars I shared about our girl, and I felt comfortable leaving her with a responsible sitter and animal lover like Leigha. This sitter has a nice fenced in backyard and a roomy layout in her home, and my Great Dane had plenty of room to move around and burn off energy. When we picked our dog up, it was clear our girl had had a blast and was relaxed there. And she was tired for about 3 days afterwards so it was a great vacay for our girl! Leigha responds quickly (initially and throughout the stay), provides updates and a few photos, and cares for her guest pets as she would her own. I like that she only books a few dogs per night; it's been our experience with DogVacay that our girl does better when there aren't too many dogs in and out of the home. It can be stressful for us to leave our fur baby, but Leigha made us feel confident in our decision to board our girl there. We will definitely continue to book with Leigha whenever possible. She and her family are a gem and we are very glad to have found them!

Wonderful experience!
Leigha was fantastic. We'd never left our husky more than one night and were quite nervous. Leigha's consistently calm demeanor and wonderful, patient Akita, Nami, not only assuaged our concerns, but taught our 2-year-old how to share and enjoy another dog for 2 weeks. Her large backyard gave our girl plenty of room to run, which she loves to do. We tried to choose carefully and are so glad we found Leigha. She even gave us a parting gift of a toy and treats that our Wyn enjoyed while on her vacation. We were far away so the pictures, updates and experience as a whole were such a relief and joy. Our pup will definitely be seeing more of Leigha and Nami.
