Stella's Bones Pet Sitting & Dog Walking

Why choose Stella's Bones Pet Sitting & Dog Walking?

Stella's Bones isn't a side gig, a part-time job, or a way to pick up extra money for me. After going to law school and working as a lawyer for almost a decade, I decided that what I really wanted to do as a job is to work with animals. It was a huge leap of faith, but it's one decision I've never regretted.

Stella's Bones has been in business since 2017, is insured and is a registered business in West Springfield, Massachusetts. I have completed the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters certification course which includes study of care of cats, dogs, and small mammals such as rabbits, hamsters and guinea pigs among others.

Along with my experience as a pet sitter and a dog walker, I also have seven years of experience volunteering at a local animal shelter where I've been trained to read canine body language to be able to interact with dogs safely and how to interact with dogs who have special behavioral issues such as fearfulness, high prey drive, and lack of social skills.

With my own animals, I have experience dispensing medicine, including insulin injections, and just about every quirk imaginable. I'd love to be able to tell you that every dog I've ever met has liked me, but that little terrier at the shelter ruined my streak.

I love that Lesley sends check ins after each visit and offers a variety of services and ways to pay.
Lesley has been a perfect fit for our family. My sister was needing some fairly long term pet care and Lesley is amazing . She immediately took to the 3 cats and they to her.
She works with all manner of critters and provides them with the absolute best care. I trust her implicitly with my cat, who just loves her. You can tell that this isn't a job to Lesley, it's a vocation.
