About Leslie

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have spent the past Ten years working with dogs. I started as a dog walker and that quickly inculeded accepting dogs for daycare. Overnights were a natural and fun progression which I soon incorporated into my business.
From the begining I took my job seriously. When I started dog walking, I attended a dog walkers accademy.
When I began taking dogs into my home I wanted to besure I was bringing safe dogs into my familly space, so I attended and pased both a canine behavior and assessment Level l and ll course. each an 8 week intensive.
As I became responsible for a growing business i saw that some of my furry friends were having problems with their people at home that I could help to solve. So I got myself certified as a canine trainer .
I started this business in the Bay Area California and once moved to Maine started doing the same thing here that I had done there.
My family is always available for extra pats and cuddles and will help with the dogs if I have to run out to and appointment or the grocery store.
My guest pups and I spend many hours on trail, parks and in the water. We love to go out and romp and come home and rest. We play until we drop.
I look forward to getting to know you and your love puppies.

Leslie was great with Zaylee. We appreciated the meet n greet. She provided us with updates and pics via text message! She was very thoughtful and addressed Zaylee's separation anxiety very well. Zaylee came home tired and happy from her Vacay- Thanks Leslie!
Leslie was great, we would highly recommend her to watch your pooch. She was communicative throughout the entire process, she sent us pictures, and our puppy came home nice and tired. Thank you so much Leslie!
Leslie is a wonderful person and a true animal lover. She is a great communicator, truly cares about animals, and sent us lots of cute updates and pictures.
This was my 18 month old Havanese's first stay with someone she did not already know. Leslie was great, my pup was happy and I had a relaxing vacay too! Will definitely use Leslie again whenever we need care. Thanks!
Leslie was wonderful. She and Bodhi became fast friends. I appreciate that she was with my dog and not in and out of her house. I will definitely use her again!
Leslie was an amazing host! Her long experience working with dogs is immediately apparent, and she not only took the utmost care of Honeycow, but also offered some valuable insights into his personality and some training tips for us to work on. Leslie also provided numerous updates and was very prompt in all communication. Honeycow would definitely stay with her again - and I can't recommend Leslie enough to others!
Leslie is amazing. She is always great to work with. She gets back to me right away, and has really helped me out when my plans have had to change suddenly. Leslie and her family love my dog, Max, and Max loves them too! Max gets lots of exercise and the opportunity to play with other dogs, which is such a nice change from our one-dog home. I can't thank Leslie enough!!!!
Leslie was a fantastic dog sitter and boarder. She has a true understanding of dogs and our pup clearly felt right at home in her place. Thank you so much Leslie!
Gringo was in excellent, extra loving hands with Leslie-- she has a very special way with dogs and it shows! He had a wonderful stay with her.
Leslie was great with our energetic pup! Amelia had a great time and came home completely exhausted. We loved the video and photo updates - will definitely use Leslie again in the future!
Leslie was wonderful with our senior dog. Our pup doesn't usually like to leave our side, but after meeting Leslie, she was eager to spend a few days with her. She came home happy and tired each day!
Boarding our dog with Leslie was the best boarding experience we've encountered. We've found our sitter. She's experienced, friendly, and sympathetic toward the pet's needs. It's obvious she cares about her clients and their loving pets. We'll be back, for certain!
Our Abby absolutely loves going to stay with Leslie. She comes home tired and well loved. I can not say enough about the genuine quality care at Leslie's home. We will definitely use her again!
We loved everything about Sherman's stay at Leslie's! She was great to work with and kept us updated. She took wonderful care of our dog and genuinely loved him. We won't hesitate to use her again and would recommend her without hesitation!!
Our dog Stella was well cared for while she stayed with Leslie during our extended vacation. It was clear during the "meet and greet" that Leslie takes pride in providing the best care for the dogs that are left in her care. She is knowledgeable regarding canine temperament and strives to make the adjustment to a new temporary home an easy one for the dogs that stay with her for the first time. I recommend Leslie highly and would not hesitate to employ her when needed in the future.
Leslie was the perfect fit for our large pup Berkeley when our Maine vacation required us to stay a couple nights in a no-dogs-allowed wedding hotel near Portland. Right away Berkeley loved her, and I liked her nice, secure indoor/outdoor space for dogs at her home. Leslie is an experienced, knowledgable dog boarder, and we would absolutely work with her again if we're ever in need of a Portland area sitter. Our dog had a great time and became fast friends with another giant pup staying with Leslie. When we picked him up at the end of his stay, he was happy and tired out from playing, which is exactly what you want to see.
Our extra large breed puppy Willow had a great stay with Leslie and her family. Leslie was aware of the needed rest and low activity level for our growing puppy and ensured she had plenty of down time. Willow was comfortable in Leslie's home right from the initial meet-n-greet visit. She received lots of love and people attention which is exactly what she enjoys most. Her need to be around people is why we chose not board her at her doggie daycare while we were away. Willow will be returning to Leslie's soon.
Tenney was well cared for. Leslie and her husband fell in love with Tenney and treated her like a family member. Leslie takes the dogs on a long walk every day. Tenney came to expect this and was most unhappy to come home to my short walk habit. I am sure Tenney would love to return for another visit.
