The Carmel Pet Sitter LLC
10 Spring Lake Dr,
Hi, my name is Leanne and I founded The Carmel Pet Sitter LLC after a 20+ year corporate career to pursue my first love- caring for pets. As a child, my friends called me "Dr. Doolittle" (from the 1967 movie) due to my uncanny ability to relate to animals. Creatures great and small have always gravitated to me and I have always felt a strong kinship with all of God's creatures. Because of my deep love of animals, pet sitting was the perfect choice for my own small business.
I have loved, cared for and raised pets for most of my life. My first pet, a cranky female cat we called "Kitty" lived to be 23 years old. It was me whom she loved, the rest of the family just had to deal with her cantankerous ways! I have lived with and have experience caring for cats, dogs, fish, small birds, reptiles and rodents. Irregardless of species, each have been treated with tender loving care.
I have a deep interest in pet health and nutrition and as a hobby research trends in veterinary medicine and the pet food industry. It is my belief that a happy pet is always sound physically as well as mentally and as a pet sitter I strive to implement this knowledge to make sure each pet has the best pet sitting experience they can possibly have.
I currently share my home with a variety of furry critters. I have five of my own dogs, three of which are rescues. I also share my home with two wonderful Maine Coon cats. I am strongly committed to animal rescue and am a foster parent for Indy Great Pyrenees Rescue. My current foster dog as this writing, Willow, is pictured on my website. I am active in canine sports and am currently training my young Portuguese Water Dog to compete in water trials and obedience. For more information about this versatile breed, feel free to write or call (no obligation) or check out The Portuguese Water Dog Club of America.
As a professional pet sitter, I am associated with NAPPS, the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters. NAPPS provides continual learning opportunities and better ways to help service my clients. NAPPS continues as the oldest and largest non-profit organization dedicated to the pet sitting industry. I am proud to be a member of this wonderful organization and pledge to to uphold their high standards of professionalism in pet sitting.
I am also bonded and insured for your peace of mind and protection.
Feel free to contact me at any time.
