Pets have always been a passion of mine. I have had either a cat or dog or more like cats and dogs most of my life. When it came time to re-evaluate my career choices, I was a teacher for many years, I decided that I finally wanted to do something in the pet community. Because of my deep love of dogs I believed that dog training was the place for me.
In 2007 I studied and received my certification to become a trainer. It wasn’t long before I realized I needed to do something to market myself as a trainer. As it happened, years before while we lived in California we needed to find someone to care for our two cats. At this time we had only been there for a few months and didn’t really know anyone. I happened to come across a young woman who said she was a professional pet sitter. Great! Exactly what we needed, I also thought, what a cool profession.
Fast forward to 2007, I thought, YES! pet sitting would introduce me to the community and hopefully launch my dog training business. Well, what I didn’t expect was how much I would fall in love with the pet sitting side of things. The next year I put the dog training side on hold and Lezlie’s Pet Sitting was born. It’s been an awesome journey, I have met some amazing people and their furry families. I’m proud of the work we have done, I’m blessed with many wonderful pet sitters and clients and I anticipate that Lezlie’s Pet Sitting will continue to offer exceptional pet care.
