Meet our Team
At Leslie's Leashes, we care about the happiness, safety and well-being of your pet and home. We are fully licensed and bonded. Leslie's Leashes is also a member of Pet Sitters International, the world's largest education organization for professional pet sitters and dog walkers. We only hire reliable and responsible dog walkers and pet sitters who have experience working with animals. All employees go through a thorough background check and interview process. We are committed to providing the best care and service to you and your pets.
Leslie, founder of Leslie's Leashes, is the proud mother of two human children and pet mom to twin cats, Tom and Jerry as well as Josie, a terrier/poodle rescue and Benny, a Cane Corso rescue. When not running the business, Leslie volunteers as a dog handler at the town shelter. Leslie has always had animals in her life. She shares her love and shows compassion to every animal she meets.
Lisa began working with Leslie in 2013 when she rescued her pup, Scupper,
a terrier mix. Along with caring for animals, Lisa is a nursery teacher who enjoys teaching her students about respecting all creatures (and classmates) big and small. Lisa's interests include spending time with her family, long distance walks, gardening, baking, wood working and much more. She also likes the challenge of fixing and repairing things that others may think should be tossed.
Lisa is a married mom of two two-legged kids and one four-legged kid; a Labradoodle named Maizy. She's had pets throughout her life and knows how special they are. In an effort to help more dogs find the perfect family, she currently runs her own dog training company called Talk to the Hound and works with a doodle rescue group to foster doodles in need of a home. "I love working with dogs and can't wait to meet some of yours!"
Melissa has been part of the team since 2019. She loves animals as well as travelling, reading, theatre, spending time with family and friends and doing community service. "I love working for Leslie's Leashes because I get to spend time with animals - which I love - while at the same time help busy pet parents make sure their animals get the love and attention they deserve. It's a win-win!"
Barbara has been working at Leslie's Leashes since 2021. She has two dogs, Merlin and King Louis. As well as caring for animals, Barbara loves spending time with her family, cooking, gardening, long distance running, snow shoeing and traveling. "Working with Leslie provides a lot of fun, great satisfaction and a chance to contribute to the happiness of animals".
