My name is Leslie and I have a deep rooted passion for animals! I have years of professional and personal experience with animals of all shapes, sizes, and species. I currently am an Shelter Mgr./Animal Control Officer/Vet Technician for one of the local animal shelters in Central MN.
I live right on the outskirts of Sauk Rapids and am centrally located for many. My home is a 4 bedroom house with a large yard and approx. 3 acres and I am only a couple miles from the local dog parks. There are no issues at my house with pets getting exercise or playtime!
My home consists of my animal loving boyfriend, our 3 children, Bowzer our happy go lucky giant schnauzer/portuguese water dog pup, Axl our gorgeous black DSH, and our kitten Tesla. All of our pets are wonderful with other animals (due to my occupation, they've gotten used to animals coming with me for vacations from the shelter for weekends!) and are up to date on all of their vaccinations.
In my home, our animals are not "pets" but family members and are treated as such and your pet would be welcomed and accepted as a member too! I can board anything from your dog to your goldfish and anything in-between! My experience includes reptiles too.
I am available to have your furry baby at my house or can pet sit at yours!
I would love to meet you and your furry children!
Why I love dog sitting
I have always been an animal lover. One of my earliest memories is of my lab mix Sheena. Growing up, she was definitely my best friend! We had many adventures together and she was always tolerant of a little girl who would use her to pull her red wagon or dress her up! There were always animals being brought home by myself and my siblings, and bless my mom's heart for allowing us to create a mini menagerie in her home! I do not feel as though a life can truly be enjoyed without a pet in it. They bring so much happiness and peace to an individual.
About my yard
While my backyard is not fenced in, it does offer ample room for running and playing! It is approximately 3 acres. But besides my yard, I am just a skip away from dog parks!
My experience administering medication
I have no issues with administering medication of any kind.
