  • Leanne with The Long Leash is an animal whisperer. Her compassion and ability to be fully present with our beloved pets is a gift, and my husband and I are grateful to have her on our team. Our dog and kitty adore her (think puppy squeals and never ending tail wagging)! Beyond Leanne being trustworthy and wonderful with animals, we appreciate that she uses environmentally conscious products in her business.  This isn't just a bonus, this is essential in my opinion. It is a joy to work with The Long Leash.

  • Last month I was super busy at work and needed a doggy walker. I looked online and read some raving reviews about The Long Leash. I must say, they are all true! Leanne and The Long Leash offer an amazing service that goes beyond just walking your dog. Leanne is compassionate,patient and kind. And Bailey took a liking to her the moment he laid eyes on her;) Seriously! While I am at work, I receive pictures of Bailey and his route which make me smile. When I come home, I see a happy playful Bailey...which means everything to me.

  • We get our puppy and senior dog walked twice weekly. We come home to two happy, well-loved pups. I can't imagine anyone I would trust more to take care of our dogs. The sitters at TLL are knowledgeable, experienced, and caring. Leanne's walks have saved our dogs' (and our ) sanity. With three kids and two dogs, we need all the help we can get. Knowing that our furry kids are in such capable hands gives us so much peace of mind.

  • Leanne is the absolute best! So kind and patient and even does well with my ....sort of bratty....Yorkies!!

  • The Long Leash and Leanne in particular has been an absolute blessing for our family. My wife and I work long and stressful hours but having the Long Leash take care of our pups during the day alleviates a tremendous amount of stress for us. We have two big dogs with a wide age gap and very different needs, but Leanne understands them both and takes great care of them. We have used a variety of dog walkers in the past in the many different cities in which we have lived, but we have never found anyone this consistent and with whom the dogs are so clearly in love. I could not recommend The Long Leash highly enough if you are looking for someone to take care of the furry members of your family!

  • With three dogs (two large), I need someone I trust implicitly to help walk and care for my dogs, and Leanne is that person. I am always cautious when hiring a new walker, and she understood my need to thoroughly explain my dogs' quirks and idiosyncrasies. She was very patient and took time to understand my dogs and has consequently built a solid relationship with them -- she even took note of one of my dog's allergies so she could buy compatible treats for her! I recently had a baby and needed help managing the dogs' routine, and she was incredibly reliable and flexible as we navigated this transition. I have been home when she picked up the dogs and returned them, so I have witnessed their excitement at her arrival and saw her handle them with the utmost professional competence. Furthermore, she provides GPS tracking and promptly sends walk updates via email.

  • If I could give Leanne more than 5 stars I would. Each day I know I'm leaving my dog Annie in the best possible hands when it comes to her daily walk with Leanne and the long leash. I know Annie looks forward to her walk and i know she's having a blast with her bff Leanne. I love that I get a detailed update, a gps map of where they went, and great pictures. This is in addition to cuddles and  fresh water. When I come home each day, Annie is so happy which makes me happy. You can absolutely trust your fur kids with the long leash! In this crazy wet weather, Leanne even brought a scarf for Annie and then sat patiently with her watching the rain when she didn't want to go out. Two thumbs/ paws up!
