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!

Seamus had a great stay with Lesley and her pups! She texted me throughout his stay and shared pictures daily! We have never left our English Bulldog with anyone before and we're so happy we found someone we can trust who loved Seamus as much as we do. Highly recommend!
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!
