About Leah

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello,

I am a Registered Veterinary Technician. I work part-time and am also a stay-at-home mom.

As an RVT, I can give oral medication, injections or any other treatments that were prescribed by your vet. I am also familiar with medical conditions your pet may have and how to care for them.

All the photos you see are of our previous guests.

I have a cozy 2 bedroom home with a fully enclosed backyard. Your dog will get the run of the house and be treated like a member of the family. They will be free to come and go in and out to the backyard as they please and be showered with love and affection. Sleeping will be the same: on their bed or our's. We love to snuggle!

We have 2 girls, ages 6 & 10. Your dogs must be comfortable around kids, well behaved, and well socialized.

Also, your dog Must be friendly with other dogs. We currently don't have any dogs of our own, but we may have other guest dogs here and they Must be able to get along with each other.

I am currently only taking a limited number of guests, usually 3 or less. I just want to be considerate of my neighbors.

Along those lines, I prefer dogs that will not bark or be destructive when left alone. It would never be for the whole day, usually only about 3-4 hours, but if you know that your dog has done this in the past, please know that however awesome your dog is normally, if they have separation anxiety or cannot be trusted by themselves for a few hours, this may be a factor for me not being able to take them.

I also pet sit outside of my home when my schedule allows:
The rates are $30 per visit:
- Dogs usually require 2-3 visits/day.
- Cats usually need 1-2 visits/day.
- Birds, pocket pets & exotics 1/day.

If your pet will be fine staying at your home and you would like me to check in on them, feed, play, hang out with them, etc. while you are away, please contact me. I will be happy to come over for a Meet-N-Greet!

Thank you,
Leah

Leah was great - thanks so much!
Boomer had a great time!
Penny had a great time. She comes home happy and chill.
Leah took such great care of our Daisy during a recent vacation. We loved the multiple, daily photo updates!!! It was so reassuring to know our family member was in such kind hands. And Leah's vet tech experience was another point of reassurance since our pup had been bullied at a dog park very recently.

Leah is the best! Our lab seemed to have a good time, she was the same sweet girl after 4 days with Leah. Leah sent us pictures of our lab every day! Highly recommend Leah!
Leah invited my 18 week old puppy and I over for a home inspection before the day she was to watch him. She easily and graciously handled a date change and on actual day of daycare she sent photo updates during his stay and even shared a goodie bone after asking if it was okay. My boy came home happy and tired. Thanks so much!

We loved the pictures of Barbara's stay with Leah! Really appreciated that :) She had a great time and we were very pleased.
Leah was great with our dogs. Although our pets are very timid, they felt at home with Leah and her family. Thanks for the great photos - that helped us know that our dogs were in good hands.
Leo was very understanding when my departure from the hospital was delayed by a day. She was again flexible when I was late in picking her up because of hospital delays. And once more when I had to send a friend to pick up my jazzy. I cannot thank her enough for coming through during a tough time.

Way better than sending my dog to the kennel! Not doing that anymore. Kind family very accommodating. Loved getting photos of my dog playing with their daughter. Definitely sending our dog every time we go out of town!
Leah was very warm and caring. Our cat was immediately at ease with her when she came for the meet and greet. We have an old cat with special needs, so it can be a challenge to find the right caretaker. With Leah, we did!
Thank you Leah! We are so grateful to have found you. We appreciate you for taking such good care of Sancho every time we leave him with you, for always keeping us posted on how he is doing, and for your reliable communication.
Leah is the best. I really appreciate the care she took for my beloved Sancho, and her updates throughout his DogVacay. The pictures and videos posted really made me feel assured that he was left in good hands. Your recommendation for us to use coconut oil was in his food was great! He loves it, his coat feels softer and healthier, and we could tell he had a great time with you. Thanks again sooo much! Leah will be the first person I contact next time we go it of town!

Two paws up!!
Leah and her family were wonderful! I have 2 dogs - a standard poodle and a toy poodle who are very gentle. We went to France for 2 weeks, and I was so sad to leave my babies, but Leah kept sending me updates along with pics the whole time. I loved that she has 2 children, and I knew my dogs would love being around loving children. I will definitely call her again.

Leah is always fabulous!
Leah and her family are regular sitters for our dog and are always fantastic.
This was the third time that our dogs stayed at Leah's home. As usual, she made them right at home and made them part of her family. She sent us pictures of them throughout their stay. I would highly recommend Leah. You can tell right away that she loves dogs, and our dogs definitely love her.

Leah is a fantastic host!
We are so happy to have Leah and her family caring for our dog.
Leah is a great host. The dogs seemed to have a great time. She was very responsive to our emails and very friendly. You could tell she loved dogs. She made them part of her family. We will definitely use her again.
We absolutely love Leah and her family. They are wonderful hosts.
We highly recommend Leah! She watched Jessie for us for 5 days and had to administer Jessie's medications twice a day. Leah sent us great pictures of Jessie every day and let us know how she was doing. We will definitely use her again.
Leah was a warm host for our two dogs. They seemed to enjoy their time there and they bonded with both her and her daughter. We will certainly use her again.
Leah and her family are wonderful hosts. We are very happy to have them caring for our dog while we are away.
Leah and her family are wonderful caretakers. We are completely comfortable having them be our dog's alternate family.
Leah and her family are wonderful!!!
Awesome as always!
Leah and her family were wonderful. She took both our dogs and made them feel right at home. We got plenty of doggy pics while we were away to let us know our pets were happy and healthy. She even helped our lab mix with a socialization issue. He has been more open to meeting other large dogs since his stay with her. I would certainly recommend her to anyone who needs to leave their best friends behind while they are away.

We just love Leah and her family. They are super with our dog and very accommodating.
Leah and her family are wonderful. Abby has a good time and I feel secure knowing she is being well cared for. She also gets to play with other guests- definitely a bonus. Thanks s million, Leah!
Great host, excellent communication and was flexible with my times. She sent me pictures of Laika during her stay and she came home perfectly happy and healthy. Would definitely use Leah as a host again in the future.
Super stay!
As always, fantastic!
We could not have asked for a more thoughtful, kind and conscientous host for our very large and energetic german shepherd. We were away for almost a month, and Leah kept us continuously informed with lots of great photos of our dog with his new canine companions. Our dog is prone to getting a dry and cracked nose, which we forget to tell Leah about. She recognized the problem when it began to develop again and provided him with the appropriate care, also taking care to keep us informed about it. When he came home, we could tell he was in great condition and had been well cared for.

Leah and her family are excellent hosts! We always feel extremely comfortable leaving our dog with them.
We really like Leah.
Super stay for our canine!
Leah and her family are exceptional hosts. They provided plenty of updates and pictures for our review. We would definitely use them again.
We left our dog with Leah overnight to allow us to attend an early morning event. Hannah is a rescue dog who was neglected and abused in her early life. She has trust issues with new people. Leah did a great job in gaining Hannah's trust and took every precaution to make sure she was safe and secure. Her house has a backyard that was ideal for Hannah who also had the run of the house.

Hannah was relaxed but a bit constipated when we picked her up. I felt that she needed an extra walk.
Otherwise we were very satisfied with Leah's service.

Leah is very friendly and update me daily with my dog's photos, she also advised me on his health condition etc, thus she is definitely my number one choice from now onwards. Home boarding is always the best, it's cheaper and better for the dog, as compared to cramped and crowded hotel or pet shop boarding.

Leah is great! She sent lots of pictures and updates. The pictures were reassuring that Abby was having a fun vacation also. We'll be more than happy to have our Abby stay with Leah and her family again.
We are so happy to have found Leah and her family to watch our dog if we go out of town. This family is wonderful, and they were all so friendly and kind to our dog. We got several photos of him enjoying his own vacation, and updates on how he was doing. It was very reassuring to know he was doing great! We will definitely seek out Leah again should the need arise.

Leah was very accommodating and available for us on a tight schedule. We appreciated her sending us updates with pictures showing how our dog had settled in at her house. An easy and great experience!
I left my two king charles cavaliers to Leah's care during an extended family trip.

Leah was professional and very responsive anytime I had questions. I particularly appreciated her daily photo updates and her close attention to detail. Leah's family also participates in caring for the dogs, making it a fun and caring environment for my two dogs.

I would definitely trust Leah for my next dog vacay!

Excellent. Highly recommended.
Leah was fantastic, we couldn't have found anyone better. She is knowledgeable, professional and easy to deal with. Highly recommended for anyone and everyone.
Leah is a fantastic dog-care provider. I just picked up my 2 energetic boxers who stayed with her for a 3-night stay, and left very impressed with the calm, capable and loving manner in which she cared for them. She lives off of a quiet street, and has a closed backyard, perfect for dogs to wear themselves out in a safe environment. She also kept me updated via text and provided some great photos of Winston & Ruby playing during our vacation. Thank you Leah!
