About Norma Lea

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Lea Benson, I am an animal lover. I have always had a pet, even as a child. I had cats, dogs, and even horses as a youngster. When I became an adult, I had a cat, named Pepper. My children grew up with her, she lived to be 22 yrs. old. I also had chickens and a guinea pig, during this time. I had adopted a dog as well. I found a pregnant pit bull that I named Lily. After she had her litter, I sold the pups and had her spade. She was the most caring and sweet girl, I am so glad I had the opportunity to love her. I have bred and raised angel fish, cared for a snake that needed a home, adopted a cockatiel, and more. I have a long history with all types of animals!
I live in an apartment complex that has a dog park, it is within walking distance to Lake Johnson as well. So there will be plenty of places to walk and play. Especially since I live off of a road that doesn’t get much traffic. My roommates share my love of animals and I have a cat and dog of my own. I currently walk two dogs in my complex, and have really enjoyed getting to know them and spend time with them. One is a pit bull and the other is a very small poodle, my dog Max has crushes on them both!
If you choose to have me care for your fur baby/pet, you will come as close as you can to placing them with someone who loves them as much as you do. You could not ask for more!
***I take this job/service/care of your fur baby very seriously. I will follow your instructions to the letter. I will be in contact and sending photos most everyday. I know how important it is to keep your pet on a routine. That will make life easier for both of you when you return home.
***Please, the drop off and pick up time for your pet should be at, or around the same time. For example, if you have booked a 2 night stay and want to drop your pet off at 7am on Friday, please don't ask me to keep him/her for an additional 12 hours (Picking up at 7pm on Sunday.) That falls into a daycare situation for that day. And keeps them under the insurance and protection plan that DogVacay extends to its customers . Of course we cannot plan everything, so within 3-4 hours is completely fine.
***Also, I really think it's best to meet you and your pet if they will be staying extended length of time Just to make sure it's a good fit. If this is at all possible.
***Lastly, I do not require a tip, I charge enough to cover everything. I would love a good review if you and your pet are happy with my service. And if I have had them here before, and you were pleased with the outcome, please reconsider me in the future, (even though I have changed my weight limit, to small dogs.)
Thank you, for reading this ....

I had to go on an extended business trip (7 weeks), and I would not have gone if I didn't know my 14-yr old cat, Bubbles, was left in capable hands. I was relieved knowing Lea was watching after Bubs- I knew he was going to be properly fed, loved, and taken care of (clean litter box, brushed, etc). He even came back a little spoiled, haha! I plan on working with Lea in the future, and I highly recommend using her services to watch over your fur babies!

Lea is reliable, trustworthy and professional. I have no concerns leaving my dog in her care. Lea walks my dog daily. She has also watched her overnight. She is a lifesaver and I'm grateful to have found her!

I cannot say enough great things about Lea! She is wonderful, reliable, and caring. I needed her at the very last minute and she was more than willing to help out and start immediately. I have a very excited, playful, and large pit bull who tends to be a little shy around new people when mom or dad aren't around. She loves Lea! I have worked with other pet sitters in the past and I have never felt as comfortable as I have with Lea. I know that my dog is in great hands and I honestly do not know what I would do without her!!

Lea did an absolutely phenomenal job. Sent pictures and videos often! ChaCha was so happy and didn't want to leave when I came to pick her up. :) I hope Lea can watch my dog next time I leave town!
I can't say enough awesome things about Norma Lea! She took my dog in an emergency situation and had her settled in within an HOUR of my first message requesting a reservation.
She sent me regular updates on how my pet was doing with plenty of pictures and even a video.
I have a HIGH energy dog who came home happy and really tired (which is a big accomplishment!).
Norma Lea is very understanding of any nervousness you might have about leaving a pet and willing to put in a lot of time and effort to make sure your pet is happy and healthy while you're gone.
