About Lesley

17 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! Be sure to tap on the main photo of my 2 dogs to view all pictures if you are viewing this in the app on your phone.

Thank you for considering me to care for your dog! Your dog is treated like one of my own when vacationing with us!
I want my guests to feel comfortable and relaxed during their stay...including a safe and comfortable place to sleep and eat and many opportunities for play and interaction with doggie friends!

Safety for all is my number one priority during your stay. Dogs are carefully screened before booking a stay and a gradual and safe introduction process is used to ensure success.

I have an extensive background working with all types of dogs and have formal education from a Professional Dog Trainers program. I have worked in a boarding kennel and managed groups of dogs in a daycare setting there. I have taught obedience in group and private settings and also provided behavioral consultations to dog owners. . I also worked for Canine Fence company as a field trainer.

I have a large fenced backyard with lots of shade and also live across the street from a park with lots of open space. I live on a quiet residential street with low traffic. I enjoy hiking and running with my dogs. My children are school aged.

I currently work from home part time and I am doing my work with dogs almost full time so this is more than a side job for me and I am fully devoted to your pets care and providing an excellent experience for you!

I completed and passed a 350 hour course to become a professional trainer in 2004 at CT K9 Academy in Newington, CT

I am an Associate Member of the IACP (International Association of Canine Professionals)

Certified Canine Good Citizen Evaluator for the AKC

I have received my certification for course completed from PET TECH for Pet CPR and First Aid

Please ask me about discounts when booking for more than 1 dog and stays for 7 nights or more!

Lesley is great, dogs were well taken care of. Highly recommend
I really appreciated the care Lesley took to ensure that Kodiak was introduced properly to her pups, Beau and Skylar. When I picked him up he seemed like he'd had a happy day with Lesley and her family. She sent me a picture of Kodi interacting in the house with her dogs and feel comfortable with the care he received.

We will be back!
Our dogs had a great stay at Lesley's! They had lots of friends to play with and from the many picture updates we received, they looked happy and comfortable. Lesley has become a regular sitter for our dogs.
Great place. My dog is very happy with Lesley and I am very happy too.
I was very happy working with Leslie. We arranged an initial meet-n-greet to assure that we were both comfortable with the fit. She keeps sensible limits on the number of dogs she will take and works to ensure everyone is safe and happy. My pup had a great week playing with new friends and Lesley kept me in the loop with updates and images. She accommodated last minute scheduling changes with no trouble. I would recommend her to anyone whose dog enjoys the company of others.
Lesley took care of my dog with great affection. Simba played enough and came back home as a happy kid. I strongly recommend Lesley for dog sitting / overnight boarding.
We boarded our dog with Lesley while we went on vacation for a week and couldn't have been happier! He got tons of love and affection while he was there and her dog was a great play buddy. Lesley was awesome about sending updates and spends a lot of time with the dogs. We will be bringing him back again.
Leslie was fantasitc!
Leslie was fantastic! My lab had a great weekend and was well cared for. Leslie paid close attention to my instructions and made sure my pooch had a safe getaway. I will absolutely book her again in the future!
very informative updates
Lesley is awesome! So glad we found her on! Thanks Lesley!
Ari had a great vacation with Lesley and her family. She sent lots of pictures and treated her with love and care. When I returned Ari had a bath and she smelled so good! I highly recommend Lesley!
There was such a nice yard for the dogs. The house was so nice and pet friendly
Lesley was great. She sent tons of updates and pictures. She took great care in introducing new dogs to a new environment.
