Leslie and Joel did a great job watching Sofie. They sent pictures and videos everyday and were great about communication. Will definitely use them again.
I am so thankful and grateful to have found Leslie & Joel to take care of my pup (7 y/o Boston Terrier) while I was on vacation for 10 days. They were beyond awesome! Leslie took the time to send me daily updates which meant so much. My pup had so much fun — it really was like he had his own doggie vacay / camp. He returned home healthy and happy. And, I think he secretly misses Leslie and Joel a lot.
Once again, Leslie and Joel took GREAT care of Barnaby and he can't wait to go back!
Leslie was a fabulous host for Bruno again for a long 9 nights! Bruno is always a happy, healthy pup when he comes home. He loves staying with Leslie!
Leslie and Joel were great dog sitters for my husky puppy! They gave me great feedback after a long weekend together and Ciroc warmed up to them quickly! Leslie kept me updated with pics and always made sure to respond quickly. Ciroc can be handful sometimes and they were able to handle it and love him and also made me feel super comfortable too because this was my first time boarding through the ap! Will definitely be a returning customer :) thank you!
Leslie and Joel were wonderful hosts! Very communicative and made the entire process painless from beginning to end. My Barnaby loved being at their house and everyone got along swimmingly. I felt very confident that he was being well cared for during my time away, and Leslie was sure to send lots of updates with photos for further peace of mind. Will definitely be using them again in the future!
Mazzy had a great time with Leslie & Joel, and I'm sure she's looking forward to her next stay there.
Leslie and Joel were great once again when Bruno stayed with them overnight in August. He truly loves being with them and is treated so well! We will definitely visit with them again soon!
Another great stay
Leslie and Joel were great! I have to admit to being a little bit of an overprotective dog mom, but Leslie made me feel comfortable from the very beginning. She sent me updates on Chewie regularly and I felt totally relaxed that she was in very good hands. Leslie was even able to accommodate me when our flight home got delayed---she was understanding and easy-going. I feel very lucky to have found her and couldn't recommend her more highly. Thank you Leslie and Joel! We will see you again in the future for sure!
Leslie was a perfect host to my dog. She took note of my dog's extra sensitivity to heat during the heat wave that came through the area while I was away to make sure she didn't over-do it outside and brought along water on walks. I love that they live so close to Prospect Park since my dog has gone there all her life and feels at home there. I received daily updates and photos/vids so I could check in. Great experience, I would use them again.
Leslie was a fabulous host once again for Bruno! He just loves staying with her and Joel. It's like his second home. We will definitely see them again soon!
Leslie was so easy to communicate with. She was absolutely wonderful with Cyan. I will definitely use her again!
Leslie and Joel did a fantastic job with my Delilah. I live in the same building, and now everytime I take Delilah out she automatically goes to their door wanting to visit! I was updated with pics and videos of them at the park. I will definitely use them again!
Leslie and Joel were the best hosts Bruno ever had! They watched Bruno for 9 nights and it couldn't have gone better. They were very attentive to Bruno and sent updates every day. They really gave Bruno a true home away from home and he clearly loved staying with them. I will definitely ask Leslie and Joel to watch Bruno again soon!
Our buddy Jameson was with Leslie &Joel for 9 nights and they were great! Pick up and drop off were a breeze. Leslie sent regular updates with photos and a couple videos. We were confident that our pup was in good hands while we were away and Jameson seemed to do enjoy his time there. Thanks Leslie & Joel!
Leslie is great! She took perfect care of Olive. I really appreciated the pictures and videos while we were away. Olive will definitely be back!
I would have given this stay a 5 if it hadn't been for some mis-understanding on both sides. I'd initially assumed my dog would be the sole dog in the host's house during my stay, but later realized another dog was going to join my dog. While my dog got along great with Leslie and Joel, the addition of another dog previously unknown to my dog after a day, created some tension as the two dogs didn't immediately take to one another.
Both parties, myself included, could have cancelled the reservation in the absence of a meet and greet between the two dogs, but we went ahead with it, given the shortened timeframe, hoping for the best.
After a day of not getting along, Leslie reported that she was able to placate both dogs and allow them to co-exist without getting in each other's way.
Fortunately, Leslie works from home, and to her credit, did a good job at ensuring that my dog had a good stay as well.

Overall experience was pretty good! Leslie was very responsive to my texts and regularly sent me updates and pics (giving me both the good and not-so-good news without sugar-coating it.)

I would certainly consider boarding with her again, but would make sure we had ample time to do any meet and greets to gage the viability of the situation.
Leslie and Joel were amazing hosts. Our dog Lionel came home rested, refreshed, and happy after spending the weekend. They sent tons of photo updates, took Lionel to the farmer's market, and even administered medicine when he didn't feel well. Great to know that we have them in the neighborhood whenever we might need somewhere for Lionel to stay!
Leslie was very friendly and open with us and for our dog Ella. Our dog was very happy while she stayed with Leslie and she seemed very satisfied with her vacation at Leslies, when we picked her up. And we were too: I would recommend Leslie very much and I hope that she will have a spot available for Ella, when we need a dog sitter again. THANKS again, Leslie!
My Chihuahua- Jack Russell terrier mix Ziggy took to Leslie and her husband right away. It seemed very natural for him to stay with them, as though he was still in his own home or with family. Their location is great, too: right near Prospect Park.
Leslie and her husband Joel were fantastic sitters for Bailey. I could tell form the photos and little videos Leslie sent that Bailey was having a wonderful time and was very well cared for. I will definitely call on Leslie in the future to watch my pup.
Very nice couple, Leslie was very nice and sweet. She looked like she really cares for dogs, and gives them all the attention they need & let me tell you my little Yorkie needs a lot of attention. I am using them again this week and every week going forward!! I highly recommend her!!
