About Leah

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
~ Have your own adventures knowing your furry family is in good hands! ~

I've watched my parents create something really amazing over the years with their own business, Rain or Shine Pet Care, and have been ready and waiting for my chance to dive-in and continue on with the family business. Nothing is more important to them than building special relationships with their clients, making the pets and pet owners know they are a part of the Rain or Shine family themselves, and I feel the exact same way!

I have always admired and aspired to be as hard-working and loving in all that I do as my parents have shown me to be. Over the past year I expanded the family business to the Ballard area – growing my own furry family with quirky cats, a charismatic labradoodle puppy (recently determined as my spirit animal), bunnies, fish and a gaggle of other critters.

I can promise you that I have been raised to give the same attention, love, and trust that my parents have undoubtedly shown to make sure their clients' loved ones are adorned and properly cared for – it’s in the Schlegel genes!

To tell you a bit about myself – I am 27 years old with a bit of a wanderer’s spirit. I have a background in Human Services and community organizing; I have traveled continents and had the amazing opportunity to spend a year in Australia (incredible!). And now I’m on to my newest exciting adventure – pet sitting!! I’m so excited to be in the South Seattle area and immerse myself in this beautiful community my family holds so close.

I’m looking forward to getting to know you all more and hope to help you take on your own adventures knowing your loved ones are in good hands!

Leah is such a fantastic person. She is reliable, friendly and absolutely loves animals. I have no hesitation in recommending her. She looked after out two cats when we were out of town and did an AMAZING job!

To DogVacay,
Reference for Leah Schlegel.
We have 2 cats and we hired Leah a couple times this summer to pet sit for us. Our request was that she come over to our house twice a day. The job also included cleaning the cat's sand box, bringing in the mail and garbage cans and checking the front porch for packages.
Leah is friendly with people and it carries over to the pets. Another tell-tell sign is from the pets themselves. One of our kitties is very voiceful and if things aren't right, she will look us in the eye and tell us all about it in her own language! Both cats will be very needy, wanting extra pets for a couple days after we come home, if the sitter wasn't attentive. Our cats do miss us when we're gone, but when Leah took care of them, it was like we hadn't left. Everything was fine and in place and our pets were happy. We would continue to use Leah in the future, except she moved out of our neighborhood and far enough away that it isn't as convenient. We were sad to see her leave.
I recommend Leah for your pet sitting position at DogVacay.

Leah was our Labradoodle's first dog walker. It was love at first sight for both of them. She is conscientious and reliable and a happy, positive force of nature! I would totally recommend her for any dog family.
