“Animal lover, military wife & nurse”

Hi, I have worked at a pet store for 5 years, and have Certification as a groomer. I’ve done pet sitting for clients, family, friends, and neighbors. I’ve grown up with dogs my whole life, and I’ve had a natural affinity for all kinds of animals. I truly love spending time with my German Shepherd, taking him on walks, throwing him the ball and giving all my attention. This is truly rewarding to me, being able to meet and spoil your fur baby, giving them all the attention and play time they need.

Hi, my name is Leia, and animals are my life! I'm currently employed at Pawsh Dog House in League City as an assistant manager and groomer. I've had a pet dog around at every point in my life, and I couldn't imagine my life any other way. At my last job, I even made up the phrase "Puppy Alert", in which anyone who saw a dog had to say, Puppy Alert! And then they had to get me so I could examine the cute puppy. I love taking care of animals, and I'd be happy to take care of yours, too!
