My dog was well taken care of while I had to leave him for a long weekend. Lesley showed up on time, loved him all over, fed and walked him. I will definitely use her services again soon.Aug 21, 2017VerifiedStella's Bones Pet Sitting and Dog Walking's reply
Brody is a sweetheart! Love him so much!
Lesley is awesome and reliable! Our dog loves his mid-day walks with her. Very happy with her services and I would recommend her without hesitation.Oct 25, 2018Stella's Bones Pet Sitting and Dog Walking's reply
Thanks, Paul. Your boy is so much fun,
Lesley walks my coonhound Bingley. He can be a difficult dude, but he and Lesley have a nice relationship :) Bingley just has his own ideas about everything--which way to walk, when he might want to destroy a dog bed, whether or not to get into his crate... But he's sweet and friendly and Lesley took the time to get to know him and be his friend. When Lesley started walking Bingley, my husband was working from home, but he rarely saw her. She came in to hang out with Bingley, did her thing and went on her way. Then my husband started working in an office again and Lesley never missed a beat. We thought Bingley might be troublesome with a change in his routine and expectations, but Lesley was great and it seems to have gone smoothly. I think Lesley is super responsive and nice to work with. I'm really glad we found her when we moved here last year. And as an added bonus, I have locked myself out of my house twice (TWICE!!!) and Lesley has saved me. Sheesh... Thanks to Lesley and Stella's Bones, we're all pretty happy!May 30, 2019Stella's Bones Pet Sitting and Dog Walking's reply
*laugh* For me Bingley has been super easy to deal with once I learned the art of compromise with him. (letting him win or trick him into thinking something was his idea, and I'm not ashamed to be proud of myself on the rare occasion I win.) Thanks so much for the review.
Leaving our fur-babies for a long weekend was a hard decision, but once I met our sitter, Lesley, I knew our kids would be in great hands! Not only did we get updates on her online portal of when she completed visits, but each time Lesley was with the dogs, we got pictures of each of them! It was really a great experience from start to finish, and I could not have been happier! I certainly know who we will call in the future to watch our kids! THANK YOU, LESLEY!Dec 4, 2017VerifiedStella's Bones Pet Sitting and Dog Walking's reply
Thanks, Kerri. It didn't take long to fall in love with Bergy & Riley.
I don't trust just anyone to care for my dogs, in fact I only trust Lesley. She is great with my pack - even my sometimes challenging pitty. From the minute she came to meet them I knew they were in good hands. She even sent me pictures while she was there! I can finally go away and not worry about my fur babies.Jun 28, 2017Stella's Bones Pet Sitting and Dog Walking's reply
Oh puhleez, next to my dogs, your "challenging pitty" is a piece of cake!
