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.

I’d give 10 stars if I could! We met Leslie and Argil during their time in Maryland (initially for dog-training). Leslie has a wealth of experience with dogs and training – and I can attest that she knows her stuff! When they begain board & train, we knew we’d hit the jackpot. Leslie and Argil always provided a safe haven for our girls, Ella (a spunky boxer mix with socialization/fear aggressive issues) and Vada (senior pug, RIP). With the special needs for our pups, we really needed the personal touch of a “home” for the girls to stay, not the typical boarding facility you find with multiple dogs, kennels, etc. Leslie & Argil went above and beyond for each stay to make sure Ella & Vada were comfortable and happy. We knew we could trust them to care our girls as if they were their own – what more can you ask for?? We received daily updates and photos during their stay – something I found invaluable, especially during the trips where we were miles away. I have yet to find anyone who comes close to what Leslie & Argil provided during their time in Maryland. If you need someone to watch over your fur-family, DogSmith of Putnam County is the best there is!

Both my dogs took obedience classes from Leslie when they were puppies, and they boarded with her numerous times for ongoing learning. They both benefited so much from Leslie’s training during their critical formation years! And I, too, learned so much from Leslie that I continue to use with them to this day. They are happy, fun, and well behaved dogs!

My dog, Rascal, loves Leslie. She makes him feel secure around much larger dogs. She texted me up dates and pictures while we were gone. Rascal always walks in with his tail up and lots of enthusiasm.
