About Leni

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there! My name is Leni and I live with my husband Mark in a single family home. We have a ten year old cocker spaniel named Toby. We live in a very quiet wooded neighborhood. During the spring, summer, and early fall, it feels like we live in a tree house!

If you're looking for an alternative to caged kennels for your dog, then this is the place for you! Here your pet will receive lots of attention and have a large fenced in backyard to run around in.

I am home all day and have access to a vehicle 24/7. Toby loves making new friends and can't wait to meet your furry pal!

Leni was a great dog sitter to work with! She responded to messages very quickly. Our dog felt right at home in her house and instantly liked Leni and her husband. We received multiple pictures and videos each day keeping us informed on how our dog's visit was going. We will definitely use Leni again in the future!

If I could give Leni more than 5 stars I would. She, Mark, and Toby were super-nice. Not only did they open their home to Salem, but they opened their hearts to him as well. They gave Salem plenty of attention and outdoor adventures with his new buddies. We never had to wonder about Salem because Leni sent plenty of pics and videos while we were away. We would definitely book Leni for Salem again!

Leni was able to fit Ribbit in for a last minute overnight for us and we couldn't have been more pleased! She's seriously so wonderful to work with and sends tons of photos and videos so we could see how much fun Ribbit had during her visit. I would recommend her to anyone and will definitely be using her services again in the future! She's such a gem!

Will definitely be visiting Leni and Toby's treehouse again. Great experience, awesome communication, lots of updates, and the pups had fun! Never boarding them at a kennel again. Thanks, Leni!
I'm forever indebted to Leni and Mark for the care they give Gracie, my old, blind Schnauzer. They positively spoil her. They are the best!!!!!!!
Another great stay June 2016 ,with Leni and Toby ! She is a caring host and I have only good things to say about our experience. She keeps small to medium size dogs which is great for our little bichon frise. Lovely home with huge fenced yard. I feel very confident and relieved when I drive away knowing Wuffie is in good hands. We will definitely book with her again. Thank you Leni!

Leni was GREAT with my little dog. She sent us pictures every day and kept us updated on everything they did. It looked like Ribbit had a great time at Leni's house and I'd definitely recommend her to anyone.
I really can't say enough great things about the care that our dog received from Leni. She is an absolute dog lover and kept us updated with so many pictures and videos!! This was our first time using DogVacay and I can tell you, we will absolutely be booking with Leni again. We were able to actually relax on vacation knowing that our pup was WELL taken care of! She is so mindful about the size and demeanor of dogs that she boards, we felt totally confident that she had a handle on each of the dogs personalities. We couldn't have asked for a better situation -- we love, love, love Leni!!

Our dogs are on opposite ends of the 'energy' scale with one being 15 yrs. old and the other just under age 1 yr. I felt that Leni understood their different needs and took excellent care of Cookie & Rosie. We would definitely book with Leni again. I also appreciated the many photos/updates she sent. They really helped with my initial anxiety of leaving our pups with someone new.

Leni took excellent care of Wuffie for us! She was great about communicating with me and demonstrated a strong understanding of dogs. Our Bichon Frise is a small older dog, and does not mix well with big dogs. Leni tends to keep only small dogs, and Wuffie was allowed the time and space she needed to feel comfortable with Toby, the resident cocker spaniel. This was a good mix and it worked out really well. I will definitely have Leni dog sit for Wuffie again!

I could not be more pleased with Leni. The frequent photo updates are awesome.
This was Chadbourn's first experience with DogVacay and he had a wonderful time at Toby's Tree House. Leni was terrific and we look forward to a return visit.
Lenni was awesome. Monty was very comfortable with her right off. He had a "marking" issue for the first time ever and she came up with a solution that was great. Love that she works from home. Monty's last sitter in NH did too. We had a great experience with Lenni and would definitely use her again.

Had a fabulous extended vacation all because we had Molly with Leni and Mark along with their dog Toby. Loved receiving pics of Molly during her morning,afternoon and evenings. Saw that she was getting along with all the doggy friends and had settled into a pleasant routine. Can't say enough of how valuable this type of service is to a true dog lover, to know that Leni took care of Molly as if she were her own dog. Molly loved the fenced in yard, going for walks and learning to use the doggie door. We will always be grateful for the wonderful care given to Molly and will be returning for future visits when we cannot take Molly with us.

This review is long overdue. My wife and I agonized over where to send our little girl, Brienne while I had to be in the hospital. After meeting Leni, all of our reservations fell away, and she continues to exceed our expectations with each new vacay.

Brienne seems comfortable and fits right in with Leni and her sweet dog, Toby. Both she and her husband are warm and welcoming.

In true DogVacay spirit, Leni sends plenty of pictures showing just how much of a good time our little girl is having throughout her stay. But even more than that, what you get with Leni is peace of mind. You can truly relax and enjoy your time away, knowing that Leni will care for your fur baby the same way she cares for Toby.

We have placed Brienne into Leni’s care a total of three times thus far, and we will certainly be asking her to care for her again.

Two thumbs up for Leni and the love and care she gives to our little girl.

Leno was great and I could not have asked her to do more. At no time did I ever have any doubt that Buddy was not getting the best of care. We will certainly use her again.
This was the best experience for both my dogs and I. I received updates, pictures and videos daily. The situation was not easy with the ice storm and power loss but Leni still managed to communicate and keep my boys snuggled and warm.
Being new to the area I started looking for a pet sitter early. My little guy is rather old and on heart medication. He also doesn't do well with very active dogs. I'm so glad I found Leni! She took great care of Bashir. It was just like he was at home.

Our girls, Casey and Bella, were well taken care of during their stay! Leni sent photo updates 3-4 times each day so we could see how their Vacay was going. First time we have used Leni and could not be happier or more satisfied with the care our girls received. We will definitely be using Leni and Toby again!

How do I begin to describe how pleased we were with Leni. She took such great care of Macy. Leni kept us so up to date on Macy through messages, photos and videos. We were so at ease knowing and seeing that she was giving Macy a great vacation. Leni took her on walks and gave her lots of love and attention and many belly rubs! That is one of Macy's favorite things. The messages and photos were so great. Leni's dog Toby became a fast friend to Macy. He even let Macy sleep in his bed. We can't say enough good things about Leni and her husband, Mark. They are just the best. We feel fortunate to have found such caring, loving and thoughtful people to care for our little girl.

Molly had a great time with Leni and Mark also enjoying getting to know Toby. This was our first time to do this for ourselves and Molly. So much better than having to put her in a kennel. Many pictures showing us that Molly was being good and loving the attention she received. Molly has only been with us for 2 months so no one was sure how well she would do, but all went well. Molly will be back very shortly.

Another wonderful stay with Toby & his people! Leni and Mark take wonderful care... My dog has special needs when it comes to new people and they go above and beyond to make sure he feels safe and secure. My people weary dog has grown to love them! He even naps on them- the ultimately compliment from a mistrusting dog. He know's we're @ Toby's as soon as I pull into the driveway and is all waggles. That's as much as I could ask for.

As always Jack was well taken care of with Leni today. It had been a few months but he totally remembered her when we pulled up and was scratching to get out of the car. He had a great playdate with her dog Toby and her charge Diego.
Once again, Leni was exceptional in taking care of Milo while I was away. Milo was excited to go back and play with Tobi and Len kept me fully updated on Milo's activities during the day. Outstanding service and care by Leni once again.
Leaving blind Gracie for 10 days was a worry. She has not done well in a kennel situation previously. Leni and Mark and Toby took such good care of her I don't think she even knew she was not home. We are so grateful for the loving care...even pushing her to venture out of her comfort zone and walk around the yard unleashed. Instead of coming home with PTSD, she is perfect. Thank you so much!!!!!!!

Leni was absolutely great with my two girls. I got photo updates multiple times a day on how they were doing and everything. Even better, they looked like they were having a blast.

While this was only my first time doing DogVacay, I truly feel Leni represents the best of what this website has to offer.

Thank you again!

I couldn't ask for a more loving and caring home away from home for our 10 yr old blind schnauzer. I'm so thankful to have found Leni and Mark! Prudy
Leni, Mark, & Toby were amazing!
Gracie stayed for a week. Leni sent loads of pictures & videos, Mark shared his office with Gracie and Toby shared his couch, toys and was a very gracious host making sure Gracie was never lonely. Leni had a few guests stay while Gracie was there and everyone got along thanks to Leni's understanding of how to let dogs meet in neutral areas. Leni, Mark, and Toby truly know how to make pet parents feel good about going away. Will definitely use Leni again.

Doggie Daycare is a great option for when we have football games and other lengthy commitments on a Saturday. Lexie spends all week in the house by herself waiting for us to get home from work, so it is a real treat for her to be able to run and play with other dogs on a Saturday! The plus side - she is well taken care of by Leni and Mark...AND she is exhausted when we pick her up. A tired pup is a well-behaved pup! Always a great experience at Toby's Treehouse!!!

Once again, Leni was absolutely amazing. She sent me photo updates multiple times every day, showing me pics of my boys playing, eating, snuggling, sleeping, and having a great time. They love going to Leni's house. It is their home away from home! I wish I could give more than 5 stars!

A tailgate party and a late football game equals a fun day for Lexie at Leni's and Toby's house. We love how Leni has the dogs meet each other in her backyard...smart move to have them meet on neutral territory!
A wedding and late night reception mean a fun night out with Leni and Toby for Lexie!
Lexie loves Leni so much. She literally pulls me out of the vehicle when we get to her house! We are so glad to have such a wonderful care provider for Lexie when we are busy and away...even for a single day or night!
Jack had a great time with leni her husband her dog Toby and the other dogs she was watching. We felt very comfortable leaving him there. She's the best. She takes the task of caring for the dogs very seriously. Is very attentive. The updates, photos, videos are very reassuring.

Absolutely a fantastic experience! With the photos Leni sent, it felt like the girls were in the next room. They had a great time and we had piece of mind with a tremendous sitter. We would highly recommend her.
Thank you so much Leni for taking such wonderful care of Willow once again - we are so grateful of the care you give her. The photos and videos were so lovely to receive and the kids just loved playing the videos over & over! Leni, Mark & Willows new furry friend Toby are so attentive to Willow & make it so easy for us to be able to relax & enjoy our time away!

Our Furbaby, Jack, had an awesome day with Leni and Toby today. Not only did he seem to feel safe and welcomed, but we were also made to feel at ease throughout the day thanks to Leni's frequent updates, complete with photos and video. We are completely comfortable leaving him for a 2 night mini vacay next week, and future pet sits. Note :We are very particular, with who watches our dog. Leni is professional, pays attention to detail and seemed genuinely interested in making our pet's experience a positive one.

Leni & Mark are definitely pawsome!!! Our Tobi or "T2" had a great time. We don't think he wanted to come home! We are delighted to know there is a great place to leave him if we need a sitter. Leni & Mark are very sensitive to dog behaviors so we had no worries. We were on vacation with our entire family and everyone wanted to view the latest dog vacay updates! Thanks for taking such good care of our little guy!

Leni did such a great job with my two boys. She sent dozens of photos and videos to show me how much fun they were having with their doggie friends. They always look forward to staying at Leni's house! I can't reccomend Leni highly enough!
Leni and her husband are great sitters. They sent me pictures throughout the day to assure us the dogs were good. I would highly recommend them.
Toby's Treehouse is a dream come true. We have always left London with family when we lived in GA. New to the location, I was really nervous to leave our fur baby. We got the best pictures with updates on how London was doing and she was having a blast! I never worried once about her! BEST DECISION we made was bringing London to Toby's Treehouse!

This was Willows first stay with Leni & I am amazed Willow actually wanted to come home with me again! I am so thankful for Leni for taking such wonderful care of Willow! All the pictures & videos were fantastic & really made it so we could relax & be worry free about Willow!! Willow certainly missed her new furry friend Toby for the first couple of days home!! Thanks Leni for taking such great care of Willow :)

Leni was fantastic. She took great care of Milo while I was away, keep me up to date with tons of photos and videos and was extremely accommodating. My return flight home was delayed over 2 hours, but Leni stayed awake so I could pick Milo up at that night, even though it was after midnight before I got to her home. I would have no hesitation to leave Milo with her again.

This was our 2nd time using Leni; it was for an extended vacation to Europe. Leni sent us no less than 250 photos and videos of Lexie playing with Toby and other visitors and having a great time chasing squirrels in their fenced back yard. I can't tell you how much we enjoyed getting these while we were so far away. We always feel like our dog is in great hands with Leni! She is AWESOME!!!

My husband and I highly recommend using Leni & her husband, Mark whenever you go away. Leni, Mark and her furry boy Toby went above and beyond to keep our girl, Gracie, from being homesick and allowed us to enjoy our time away.
My husband and I needed a place for our girl, Gracie, to stay for a night. We had never used Dog Vacay but I had heard of the company so I did a quick search on the Dog Vacay site, found several folks in our area and decided to contact Leni to arrange a meet n greet. Since Toby is almost the same age as Gracie we thought it may be a good fit plus Leni had so many great reviews (which she really deserves)
We met with Leni, Mark and Toby and Gracie fit in just fine. Not long after we dropped Gracie off at Leni's, we were sent a short video and some pictures and the pictures continued throughout Gracie's stay which was so nice to see she was enjoying herself and feeling relaxed (as one picture of Gracie showed her with her whole head in Toby's toy box).
When we picked up Gracie it was apparent she had a good time by her relaxed demeanor.
We will definitely be contacting Leni again whenever we go away.

Another great stay with Leni. She is so attentive to Mabel and her senior needs. I can't imagine a better, safe or more fun place for her to enjoy her vacation!
Great as always!
This was a wonderful experience for us and our dog, Cloud. Leni kept me updated the whole time. I could see by the photos that Cloud was happy and being very well loved and cared for. I could really enjoy the vacation without worries about her. I can't say enough good things about, Leni. She was very attentive to all my instructions, important since Cloud is on medication, she kept me updated the whole trip, and Cloud really seemed to have a great time. It WAS really like she had a vacation too. :)

Belle loved her stay with Leni and Toby! She is usually very apprehensive about meeting new dogs, but Leni met us outside and let Belle meet and play with Toby. This was Belle's first time staying away from us with anyone other than family. Leni sent us tons of pictures and videos which really helped put us at ease that out little fur-baby was enjoying her time. We have already booked her next stay and I know she'll have just as great of a time.
Read More...
Another great vacation for Mabel with Leni. I never have any worries when I'm away as I know Mabel is safe, well cared for, and gets lots of love and attention. Mabel is a senior and has numerous meds and dietary requirements and Leni handles it all with ease. She stays in "photo contact" while I'm away and sends pics throughout Mabel's day. I always know how the day has gone and get a cute "good night" photo at bedtime. I have no hesitation in recommending Leni to other dog owners. In 25 years of having dogs, I've never found a better person to care for them when I'm away.

Tucker seemed to really enjoy his visit and we enjoyed getting the pics! He was quite relaxed and we'll look forward to going there again! Thanks, Sharon
Leni and her husband were wonderful and extremely accommodating.

I had a last-minute trip out of town and despite her being booked, she watched my pup for 5 days. She also accommodated my dog's unusual eating habits and schedule. As a bonus, several times each day, she sent me pictures and videos of all the dogs playing, walking, resting, and eating.

I highly recommend Leni and her husband, with their beautiful dog-friendly home and the large fenced-in backyard..
Read More...
As always, Leni did an amazing job with my boys. She sent dozens, yes, DOZENS of photos of them playing, napping, and eating. She was even diligent about putting in their ear medication. My dogs came home exhausted and happy. Hear ye, hear ye: book with Leni! You dog will have so much fun!
Read More...
Leni is simply fantastic! We met with her and her husband in advance to make sure our dogs were comfortable around each other. This was unexpected and very much appreciated, as it gave us a place to see where our Lexie would be spending time. Leni's dog, Toby, is very laid back and super friendly, so they got along great. Leni's home is vey dog friendly and they have a wonderful fenced-in back yard for lots of play time. Leni is extremely thoughtful and did things we never thought a dog-sitter would do...like buckling Lexie in safely and securely when taking care rides and using a special no-choke harness when taking her on walks. We especially loved getting photo and video emails throughout the day...it reassured us that she was in great hands and having a terrific time. This was such an incredibly positive experience, we will use Leni again and again!

We love Leni & Co.! We just moved to the area, but are already repeat guests.

Toby & his humans remove the guilt from travel... they take great care of my dog and he gets to play all day. They also graciously accommodate my dog's food allergy and other random requests.

You'll get tons of photo updates while you're away too! I love seeing what Diego is up to throughout the day.

Leni is a loving and caring dognanny with a great eye for details. Leni was sending updates several times a day with pics, videos and texts. I no longer need to worry to go on a trip. Thank you Leni for the awesome care!
Another great stay with Leni. I can't imagine leaving our girl with anyone else!
Leni did such an amazing job with Clarence and Scout. She took them on walks, played ball, and snuggled with them. They came home happy and tired, and even a little more fit from all the time they spent playing. She sent dozens of photos and videos during their ten day stay. They clearly had a great time at Leni's house.

Mabel had a great day with Toby and her family today. Leni was wonderful with her and sent me pictures and an update during the day. Mabel enjoyed spending time outside in the huge, fenced backyard and then came inside to lounge in a sunny spot in the family room. She came home very relaxed. We will definitely be returning for another visit soon!
Read More...
Leni was great! She sent me numerous photos and videos of my dogs having fun, snuggling, grooming each other, playing with toys, exploring the yard, and going on walks. I can tell that she enjoyed them and they were well cared for. I will definitely be taking my dogs back to Leni.

Our first experience with Dog Vacay was great! Leni, Mark and Toby took great care of Bailey, he loved it. I highly recommend Leni and Mark they were wonderful!
