 “Our 6 month old puppy loved her vacation (aka canine slumber party). She had daily pool parties, games of fetch, and cuddling sessions. I loved seeing her smiles in all the pictures and updates I received. I highly recommend Leslie’s services as she clearly loves the animals and wants them to be happy and spoiled while in her care.”

“Bindi seemed to be right at home with Leslie, and that alone gives peace of mind when leaving your pet.

Bindi learned how to loose leash walk and that was a huge issue for me. Leslie gave us plenty of home work to do to instill the new skills Bindi had learn. Leslie is very good to follow up, because I believe she takes her work very seriously and truly cares for the dogs.

 I will definitely used Dog Smith again in the future.”

 “I would highly recommend DogSmith of Putnam County to anyone who has a pet. Leslie made Tabitha and I comfortable from the initial meeting. We talked about what I wanted to do with Tabitha Rally, Hunt Tests, and Barn Hunt and the recall issues I was having. She put together a plan and I am extremely impressed with the progress. I look forward to traveling for work now knowing Tabitha is working during the time I’m gone. Plus, I’m relieved that she is in a home environment instead of sitting in a crate.”

Leslie is amazing with dogs. When we rescued our dog Summer she came with lots of baggage and fear. Leslie helped us tremendously with Summer in transitioning into our home and our lives. Leslie was also the only one we would trust with Summer when we needed to board her. We knew that she was in the best of hands and would be cared for as if she were one of her own. It got to the point when we were taking Summer to Leslie she knew it and would get excited and couldn’t wait to get out of the car. I can not say enough good things about Leslie and her love of dogs and her ability to work with them. She was amazing with Summer and made the years we spent with her the best years of her life.
