About Leslie

I've been an animal lover since I was a little girl. I grew up with German Shorthaired Pointers and have always had a mad love for dogs and horses. My fur-babe Hendrixx, is a Rhodesian Ridgeback. He is our second Ridgeback, we absolutely love the breed. While I have a soft spot for big dogs, I love the little ones too. I am certified Canine Hydrotherapist and will eventually start by own business so I can help with rehabilitation after surgery, arthritis, mobility and weight loss. I have been a pet guardian on and off over the past 2 years offering services on a few of the other pet sitting platforms. I have a handful of repeat clients but want to expand and share my love for dogs through this platform.

I commit to ensuring I am the best Pet Guardian you could ask for. Your family member will be well-looked after and safe while you are away. I can adjust my care routine based upon your pup's needs. I am a firm believer in fresh air and exercise, so if that is what is needed, you will find us at the dog park or on a walk. If your pup needs downtime and relaxation, we can make time for cat-naps.

I live in a 2 story townhome and the dogs stay inside. We have a space where the dogs roam free in the house and in the courtyard. I'm outside every 2-4 hours for bathroom breaks. The dogs sleep inside at the foot of our bed. See indoor and outdoor photos of my space.

I am an excellent communicator and will send photo & video updates during our time together. Communication is key for me, so please feel welcome to ask questions and state your fur-babe's preferences.

I have experience in training my own puppies and can help reinforce good behaviour, recall etc.... Just let me know your commands and we will be on the same page.

I live in Pyrmont, which caters to dogs. I am a big part of the canine community here and know great routes for walks and am a frequenter to all of the dog parks. I also love the dog beach at Rose Bay and the foreshore of Blackwattle Bay. I'm not a stranger to the off-leash area at Centennial Park and I'm a fan of Sydney Park because it is great for exercising our canines.

I have an SUV and can offer pick-ups and drop-offs. I can administer oral medication. I have the results of a police background check I'm happy to share with you.

I would love to meet you, explore your fur babe's needs and ensure we are a good match. A meet and greet before an overnight stay and/or dog day care will be necessary to ensure your pup gets along with my boy, Hendrixx. I can only accommodate house-trained dogs as we have carpet. I require all vaccinations be up to date along with flee, tick & worming treatments so I can keep our home safe for our dog and for future guests.

Services: servicing areas within a 5K radius to Pyrmont.

Overnight boarding: 24 hours from drop off to pick up. Includes 2 walks a day with a mid-day bathroom break. Dogs will not be left alone for more than three hours, only if I have to go out for something. One guest dog at a time.

Dog Daycare: 7:00am drop-off and pick-up no later than 6:00pm. 2 walks daily for 30 mins to an hour (weather dependent).

Dog Walking: 30 min walk included in the price. Allowing 15 min drive time to and from your place. If you live in Pyrmont walk time is 45 mins.

Home visits: include feeding, medication if needed and a 15 min walk and 10 min play time.

Overnights at yours: I will require a home visit before committing.

Owners need confidence in the dog sitter. And I had absolute confidence in Leslie and her partner. Our dog was well looked after and happy. I’m grateful for the regular updates. Thank you x

Leslie was wonderful with our Whippet over the last few weeks. Leslie and her family are clearly genuine dog lovers and her home is well set up to care for dogs. We were very comfortable leaving our timid little girl there and will definitely be using her again in the future to look after our dog.

Familiar with dog training techniques
I have been around dogs my whole life. I believe in positive reinforcement training. I’ve had several dogs I’ve raised from puppies which I’ve trained myself. If you provide patient repetitive instruction and boundaries, I have found most dogs learn very quickly. I can help reinforce good behaviour based upon the foundation you’ve already created. My dogs have always been taught good recall, gentle treat taking, standard commands such as “sit, stay, down, leave it”, and they have been taught not to jump up on humans. I love to energetically connect with canines.
