About Us


Donna Deitz, lead Leash Lady, and Spooner, her Boston Terrier


Professional pet sitting is my second career but animals have been part of my life since the very beginning. I grew up on a not-quite-farm surrounded by ponies, horses, dogs, cats, chickens and ducks. And my own household (in addition to three energetic boys) has been home to gerbils, guinea pigs, love birds, and our boxer and Boston terrier. So whether it’s walking dogs, playing with cats, cleaning bird cages, or caring for my horse, being involved with animals is what I enjoy. I worked for many years as a medical technologist and ultrasound tech, but in 2004 I decided that being around animals again, interacting with people and their pets, and being outdoors was what I enjoyed most. I learned the ropes working for a local pet sitting company and recently decided to strike out on my own and start Leash Ladies.
