My name is Leah, and I am a recent graduate from Brock University with a small army of pets of my own. My entire life, I have thrilled in caring for and training animals of differing abilities and social experiences. From a fluffy puppy to an abandoned previously-abused dog, from a mute cat to a recently-feral and extremely people-fearing kitten, I am able to care for animals of all ages and temperaments. In fact, the previously mentioned people-shy kitten is currently curled up on my lap, working up a purr as I type!
It is important for me to establish a clear line of communication between myself and potential clients about their needs, and the needs of their pets. I am extremely adaptable, open to meeting all criteria required for the comfort of anyone contacting me, and I have a fun time doing it.
For the sake of background, throughout my life I have had four dogs and six cats. Two of those dogs I took a personal hand in training, as well as two of those cats. (Ever seen a cat sit, stand, and play fetch? Well, if you're interested in training as well, let me know! :) ) I have lived with animals my entire life, and love them dearly.
I offer such services as: walking your pets for 30+ minutes, visiting your home for a minimum of 30 minutes to check in on your pets and fufill any needs of theirs, staying in a home for an extended period of time or overnight in order to both house-sit and watch your pets, and basic training for pets. I am available for these services on both weekends and weekdays, at any time necessary.
If you would like to contact me, please shoot me a message.
Leah was a delight. She came for a pre-interview and my cat liked her right away. She sent pictures and reports by text while I was away. Mittens seemed very relaxed and happy when I returned. Leah even taught her how to shake a paw!!!! I would definitely use her again and/or tell others of her skills.
Leah was very thoughtful, affectionate and very attentive with my pets during her visits. Cats, Guinea pigs, and fish tanks were all cared for very well. No issues with the different foods for the cats, the stinky pigs after a few days, or feeding bloodworms to fish! Leah is very detailed and trustworthy, I will hire her again.
