At A Leash Above, LLC our priority is to give you trusted, dependable, caring and loving pet care in your home. You should have peace of mind while you are away from home. We will care for your pets the way I care for my fur kids. I offer an alternative to boarding and kennels. 

Iofficially started taking appointments for my pet sitting business in June 2016. My Husband Scott and our five boys live in Gretna, Ne, My hometown is Elkhorn, Nebraska. I received my BS degree from the University Nebraska-Lincoln,

Go Big Red!

​​​​​​​​​​​For the last six years I have had the great opportunity to stay home raising our boys until our last son started school. During my time at home I focused on my family and of course our animals.

 My family, neighbors and friends always know they can count on me for helping with their pets and homes when needed. I enjoy it greatly and always have a sense of pride when I know every animal under my care is spoiled and happy. I have had animals all my life. Dogs, Cats, mice, parakeets, bunnies, guinea pigs and fish. It gives me a great feeling caring for creatures that need love and attention. When I am greeted with wagging tails, friendly meows and barks of excitement it proves to me I am doing what I love. Its important to build a relationship with my clients and their fur kids. If you don't have excellent customer service skills and empathy for the clients needs than you shouldn't be a pet sitter. I have all these qualities and it shows with my work ethic, professionalism, repeat business and the referrals that I happily receive. Anyone can be a pet sitter but building the relationships, being reliable and proving your trustworthy is at the top of my business list. 
I have worked hard for the past years building my professional company the correct way. I have legally created my Limited Liability Company (LLC) and have completed the PetTech certifications of Pet CPR, First Aid & Care. I also carry insurance and am bonded through Pet sitters Associates underwritten by: Evanston Insurance company. This will give you reassurance. I also administer Background checks on all my new staff. I am always happy to share References of the amazing families that allow me to come into their homes and care for their pets.
