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.

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.
Corvo really seemed to enjoy his stay. Norma Lea sent lots of pictures, which we loved!
