About Lela

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a passionate dog lover and have been since I can remember. I have a large fenced in shady back yard that I treat regularly for fleas and ticks. I live in an older quiet neighborhood (close to the Atlanta Airport) where all the neighbors watch out for each other. I will play fetch, daily brush, or whatever your dogs desire. I am currently a dog groomer. I am certified CPR/First Aid through Animal Behavior College. I provide a safe and comfortable environment inside and outside. Your dog will be my main concern while in my care. My son, daughter-in-law, and 17 month old baby live with me right now. They are also animal lovers. They have two Chihuahuas and I have a Pitbull puppy who is socialized with people, dogs, cats, and children. Her name is Xena and she is a sweet heart. We hope to hear from you soon, so that you can take care of your business or go on a vacation and not have to worry about your loved furry family member. I will keep you posted daily with pictures so you do not worry while you are away. Look forward to meeting you and your furry family member. Lela, family, and furry family.

Lela, Jessica and the whole family took great care of Pepper! She made new friends including Bella. Already looking forward to next time!
Jessica was very flexible with both the meet and greet and the drop off! Libby was in great shape after being able to spend the week playing and running with their dogs in the big fenced-in backyard. (Not to mention their location was perfect!) I was impressed at all of the considerations Jessica (and Lela) made to ensure a great successful dog vacation for our 4 legged baby, Libby. I would definitely recommend Jessica/Lela to anyone.

Thanks!

I'm so happy I found Lela and her daughter Jessica. I could not have asked for a better experience. From the moment we met for our "meet and greet" I knew they were loving and caring and have a real passion for dogs. Lela and Jessica accommodated and exceeded all of my 10 old Labrador's needs. My dog is very hot natured and they even had a cooling pad for him to lay on. They sent me many photos and updates while I was away. I have been taking my dog to one of the big box dog daycare and boarding facilities and he would come back totally exhausted and stressed out. It would take him several days to recover. After staying at Lela and Jessica's he was well rested and was totally himself after his stay. I am looking forward to our next stay with this wonderful family. I give them the highest and best recommendation.

I would like to rate Lela V a 5+ ,She kept me updated and also sent pictures of my dogs enjoying their self .I didn't have any problems or issues shes very friendly and a kind individual!!!
I had to book a last-minute daycare stay for Jarrod, and I met and booked Lela based on her positive reviews and convenience to my workplace. She and Jessica (her daughter, I believe) were lovely, and both asked plenty of questions about Jarrod and his behavior. I couldn't have asked for kinder caretakers. This is a great place for a dog who needs lots of stimulation and room to run daily, as she has a spacious and secure backyard and a few friendly dogs who love to play.

For Jarrod, I think the stay was a little overstimulating - he usually sleeps all day, and he seemed tired and a little stressed when I picked him up. Part of this could be because of the new environment, but I think that sharing the house with three dogs (one of whom barks) and a young child took a lot out of him. I believe other dogs would thrive in this environment, but because Jarrod is quiet, sensitive, and shy by nature, it was not the best fit. I'm still very grateful to Lela and Jessica for taking Jarrod last minute and very happy with both of them as hosts, and I would highly recommend them to owners of more social dogs.

Lela and family were great. This was last minute for me and I'm always apprehensive about where my boys stay. Buster n Harley are good boys and very playful. Lela home is dog friendly and her yard was exceptional. My boys were loved and spoiled during their stay. I would definitely call on Lela to watch my boys.

Lela and Jessica did such a wonderful job taking care of my Misty. Lela answered my request quickly, I needed someone to keep Misty with less than a 24 hour notice. She sent daily updates with pictures. It was so good to receive those updates, because this was our first Dogvacy stay. I am so thankful for the care they gave Misty, she looked so happy and content. I want to use her service again and would definitely recommend her to others.

Lela was great at communicating with me! I would recommend her services. Jessica was my dog's primary caretaker for the weekend it seemed like. She kept me up to date with pictures and text messages. She was very helpful and accommodating to my dog with fetch games and car rides (He loves car rides). Lela and Jessica made traveling with my dog easy and I really appreciate that.

I was super worried about leaving my dog for a long weekend, but Lela made sure he felt right at home! I loved getting updates and pictures of him fitting right in and being loved on by Lela's family! Having him with Lela for the weekend made my vacation much more relaxed and enjoyable.

Lela watched my dog Wiley while we were on vacation in Boston. I've never left her with a stranger before, but Lela's daily updates/pics of Wiley playing made me feel like I made the right choice. Needless to say she returned a happy dog. I would definitely recommend Lela to anyone.

Lela took great care of my two dogs. One dog was very nervous because it was her first time away from home but she settled in quickly and did great. Lela sent pictures each day with reports on how they were doing. I couldn't be more pleased and would highly recommend Lela. Also, she is close to the airport which was very convenient.

Lela was amazing I have two dogs both house dogs one 18month old pit bull and a 5 year old long haired Dotson both dogs seemed to have done great. She even had them during the 4th of July with all the fireworks going on. She gave us an update on a daily basis and accommodated us when we had a family emergency and were a little late to pick up the dogs. We will definitely be calling upon Lela whenever we need a dog sitter amazing person amazing experience.

Snowy had never been away from me overnight & she was on antibiotic so I was very happy when she took to Lela & her family right away! Updates & pics made me feel great! I know where Snowy will go for her next vacation!!!! Thanks Lela
Lela took great care of our beagle, Charlie. He's a shy dog and requires extra attention and she took care of him as if he were her own. Her house is very dog friendly - big, fenced back yard where the dogs can play and run around and all of her family, including her own doggies, were very kind and friendly to Charlie. He had such a good time, he didn't want to leave her side when I was ready to pick him up. We'll definitely be using her services again!

Lela took care of my 2 pups on short notice and did an excellent job. Her house has a big spacious yard for the dogs to run around and play, and she sent several updates/pictures by text. She has a couple friendly dogs of her own, so it was great knowing my dogs had company to keep them busy while I was away. She also brushed them before I picked them up. Overall, I would highly recommend her services! I plan to definitely bring Charlie & Tiny back when I'm in need of a dog sitter again!

Lela took awesome care of our DJango! DJango had a great time and the text/picture updates were greatly appreciated! We would definitely recommend her services to others and use her again! Thank you, Lela!!
Lela came to our rescue when our other host cancelled at the very last minute due to an emergency. She was available for a meet-n-greet on very short notice and was very professional throughout the whole interaction. Uno was very excited to meet Time and Lela and thoroughly enjoyed his "vacation." We received constant email updates from Lela which made us feel very comfortable during our out-of-state trip. All in all, a very good experience. Uno came back home well groomed and refreshed. Definitely recommended.

Lela took very good care of Taz. She sent me messages during Taz's stay describing all of his activities, along with cute pictures. All of the notes were composed as if Taz were writing them himself.

She has a nice, fenced in backyard and she took Taz on a daily walk. Everything went without a hitch.

Lela was very flexible to work with during the stay. I would surely use her services again.

Lela was very prompt with the pick up and very flexible with the drop off. She was great and I would recommend her to anyone that wants their puppy to be spoiled all weekend!
Lela was great with our puppy Waldo. I know he had a great time with her and she loved him as her own. She even had him a new toy to come home with! She took him on all of her weekend activities and took him for lots of walks. She sent me awesome updates everyday along with great pictures. She was very responsive and flexible and I hope to use her again!
