Lea is clearly a dog lover, and trainer I might add. She tunes in to dog behavior and seemed to read my pup right off the bat. I came back to a happy dog who knew a new trick... balancing on a rubber ball!! Rapport between them was clearly simpatico. And, my dog learned something about cats and how to behave around them too.
Thank you Lea.
Lea is great! Very knowledgeable, accommodating and friendly. Our pups came home exhausted and happy!
Lea is great! Took great care of our 6 month old puppy while we were out of town for a day. He came home well fed, exercised, played with and even with a few better manners. So pleased.
Sienna had a wonderful stay with Lea. She is an incredible trainer and a great asset to the community. She really knows how dogs' minds work and this is so helpful for owners! Sienna learned a new trick during her stay and could balance on a ball, which is a great feat for an 80 pound girl! I know Sienna was stimulated, happy, and safe during her stay which in turn allowed me to enjoy my vacation without worrying about my fur baby. I would absolutely leave Sienna in her care again in the future and would recommend her to locals and travelers seeking dog care or advice.
We had a great experience with Lea. Our dog can be reactive so we were worried about leaving her with another dog. However, Lea was very accommodating and our dog seemed to have a great time. She also sent picture updates so we knew our dog was okay. Would definitely leave our dog with Lea again.
We came from out of town to take our dog to the beach & go sea fishing. Since we couldn't take our dog on the boat & of course couldn't leave him in the car, we were baffled on what to do! Thank goodness we found this site & found Lea to watch him for the afternoon! I think our dog had more fun with her than we had fishing! We recommend her to everyone & will definitely be contacting her again when we're in Fort Bragg! Thanks again!!!
Lea did a great job taking care of our energetic pup. In the heart of Fort Bragg the location was perfect. Thank you Lea and hope to see you again soon.
Lea is wonderful.
She is terrific. She cared for and taught Boone.
I dropped off two dogs with Lea. The stay was uneventful (which is good). Both dogs seem to adapt fine. Lea has an excellent understanding of dogs. She was able to calm both dogs very quickly. She was very flexible about my pickup time. In addition, she sent occasional pictures of the dogs. I also learn some things while talking to her. I would recommend her anytime.
As always Skye had a wonderful time with Lea and Sandy...thank you again!
Our puppy Sofie really enjoyed her stay with Lea and Sandy the wonder dog. We highly recommend Lea for short stays or long stays
Our dog Sofie was very well taken care of while we were gone. She was happy to be with Lea and her dog Sandy.
We were very pleased with Lea. Sofie had a great time interacting with Lea's dog Sandy and also running in the Dog Park.
My dogs first stay, Lea was great!! Her dog Sandy is very sweet and friendly. My dog felt right at home and immediately was comfortable there. You can tell Lea is a total dog lover and knows what she is doing. Will definitely use her again. My mind was ease that she was well taken care of while I was away. Thank you Lea!!
Excellent job with my dog. She even taught him his manners. He was very well taken care of and loved being there.
Lea is the greatest! Matty had a wonderful time! Thanks again, Lea! Barbara
Matty had a great time. Lea was great with Matty, made her right at home. Matty and Sandy played like old friends. Great to know I have a home from Matty when I need to leave town. Thanks Lea Barbara
When we first arrived to drop our dog Kona off at Lea's house, she was very welcoming and made us all very much at home. Sandy her dog also came out to great us. We took time to walk around her home and yard for Kona to see the surroundings. Both my husband and I felt very comfortable leaving Kona with Lea and Sandy to take some time to ride on a train ride. When we returned Kona was very relaxed. Lea send us photo of the fun Kona had running at the dog park with Sandy and also some cute photos of the dogs laying together. We needed to book a second day with Lea who was very accommodating. The next day when we went to drop Kona off she just immediately started playing with Sandy and went straight into the yard.

We had a great Experience with Lea taking care of our dog. She is very Experienced with dogs and we would book with her again when we return.
Lea was quick to respond and flexible. Tyson looked relaxed when we went to pick him up. Perfect for hitting the town without the pup for a day! :)
I had so much fun with Lea and Sandy! If you're looking for a great place to stay while your humans are away, this is the place. There's a very nice lawn and garden, we played games and Lea even taught me a new trick. My humans came and got me for a day trip to the beach which was fun but I was so happy to get back to Lea and Sandy that I bounded out of the car and up the walk lickety-split!
I had my own bed and my usual food so I felt right at home. Thank you, Lea and Sandy, for a wonderful vacation. I hope I get to come back some day. Love, Skye
Lea and Bob were great hosts for my two dogs. They had a nice fenced yard, were close to the local dog park and an off-leash beach. My dog Bingo loved playing with their dog Sandy. Lea sent me some nice pics of my dogs while we were missing them during the month we were away.
