About Leah

ABOUT ME:

- I am a dog lover with a particular fondness for small to medium sized dogs.

- I have completed a Certificate II in Animal Care, including animal first aid. I am also qualified in Fear Free methods when working with animals.

- I've been a volunteer at the Domestic Animal Services shelter at Mugga Lane for thetwo years.

- I also volunteered as an animal attendant at the CIT Dog Daycare for six months.

- I currently have two sweet oodles of my own and many more years experience in caring for animals.

- I strongly believe in fear free interactions with all animals and will never cause undue stress to your pet.

MY SERVICES:

● I’ll give your pet lots of care and love! This includes feeding, cleaning up waste, play time, snuggles and enrichment activities.

● I’ll send you daily updates and pictures of your pet so you can relax knowing that your pets are being well cared for.

● PET SITTING (AT YOUR HOME): In addition to my pet sitting services, I am a very clean and considerate house guest. I will look after your home and can also help with minor chores, such as watering plants, while you're away.

● HOME VISITS: Available for the Inner North, Inner South, Belconnen and Gungahlin regions only. Dog walks are solo or for dogs from the same household only.

● GROOMING: I offer basic wash, dry and brush services at a local grooming station. This includes pick up and drop off, shampoo/conditioner, dry and brush. I am also happy to trim nails if your dog is willing. 

● CUSTOM SERVICES: Please reach out to discuss any particular needs you might have.

We were impressed by the wonderful care Leah took of our three cats and one dog, particularly as the dog and one cat are seniors with health issues. Leah was professional, caring, and reliable. She kept us informed with texts and photos; resolved issues with sensible, practical measures; took appropriate initiatives and administered medication efficiently. She was also a considerate and responsible house guest, and is very pleasant to deal with. We plan to book Leah for our upcoming trips.

LEAH IS AMAZING!! We have two high needs dogs, one with anxieties and an 18 year old with mobility issues. When we came home our dogs were calm and happy. It was very clear to us that Leah had loved and cared for them as if they were her own.

Leah sent through a few updates that we found really helpful and a few cute pics.

We can not rate Leah highly enough! She is calm and capable and our puppers love her.
