Satisfied Customers Are Saying:
“Leslie has proven an invaluable help, not only in caring for my cats, but also when she discovered a water leak in my kitchen, while I was out of town. Thanks to her attentiveness and resourcefulness, Leslie noticed a small puddle of water on the floor, traced it to a leak and took care of the problem. The water leak could have caused substantial damage, run up my water bill and become a major problem. As a responsible, reliable person, Leslie was able to recognize the problem and deal with it immediately. While I was away I could rest assured that not only were my cats taken care of, but unexpected emergencies would be handled efficiently by Leslie, too.”

"Leslie comes by once every weekday to let Archie out for his mid-day break. I don't know what we would have done if she didn't provide this service. I recently changed jobs and started working out of town, so I'm no longer able to let out one-year-old miniature dachshund out during my lunch break. Archie is thrilled to see her each day. We know Leslie as a friend and always knew she was a trustworthy person, but her attentiveness to her job is outstanding! She keeps us aware of anything out of the ordinary, and I know Archie is getting a full and fun 15 minutes a day with her. We feel Leslie's Petminder's services are a great value and wouldn't trust our little doggie with anyone else."

“Leslie has helped us out in many ways. She has been taking our two rambunctious Standard Poodles, Bella & Buca, for walks every weekday since January. What a difference it has made! They are much happier, calmer, and better behaved. She has taken great care of our four animals [2 dogs + 2 cats] while we were out of town. She has transported the dogs to vet & grooming appointments. She calls us immediately if there is anything out of the ordinary. Several months ago, Leslie told us Bella was straining & having digestive issues on a walk. It prompted us to take Bella to the vet. Bella’s stomach had twisted -- she would have died if she hadn’t received medical attention so quickly. Leslie is exceptionally conscientious and caring. We highly recommend her services.”

"Leslie is not only reliable and trustworthy, but she's very knowledgeable about dogs and dog care."
— Robyn Horton, Remy & Asha
"During two, week long excursions and spanning the past year, Leslie has done a great job befriending my 100+ Lb. Rottweiler mix and instilling my trust in her business. Her professional background and heart for pets are good assets in building this trust, and as a result, my confidence in her has been established. She has even taught my old dog a few tricks by reinforcing his previous training."
— Dave File & Rambo
"I moved to Lawrence KS in the fall and a big concern for me was having someone mind my two cats, Sadie and Samantha. My concern was short lived because I found Leslie and Petminders - problem solved. I leave my cats and home in Leslie's hands and all my worries are gone. She is honest, professional, thorough and caring. My home and pets are treated with TLC when in her care. Whenever I return from my travels, I am greeted by two happy, lovable, purring cats. What a gift!!"
— Kathryn Hussa
"I love dogs. My 2 dachshunds; Tate and K.C. are my family and closest friends. When they got older and staying in a kennel became stressful, I decided to find home care. Pet Finders has been a blessing. Now, when I travel, I know they are in familiar surroundings and are being well taken care of by thoughtful, knowledgeable people; thereby allowing me to enjoy my trip more. You do a great job, Leslie. Keep up the good work!!"
— Susan Morris

"We love our animals! But as working professionals with busy and unpredictable schedules, it's not always possible for us to be there for our three cats and one dog. We depend on Pet Minders. We've found Leslie Soden and her colleagues to be professionals in every sense of the word. They are knowledgeable about animal care in general. They took the time to learn about our pets' specific needs. They are also reliable and security conscious. We feel comfortable leaving our home and our fur-bearing companions under Pet Minder's care whenever and wherever we travel. We highly recommend Leslie Soden and Pet Minders!"

"I first got to know Leslie Soden because we both have Poodles. We talked at different dog shows and developed a friendship based on our common interests. When you spend a weekend visiting and talking about your dogs and discussing training issues you get a good insight into that person and can see how they treat their own dogs. Based on the years we have known each other, I would trust Leslie with the care of my Poodles and would highly recommend her for any of the services she is offering."
