About Us

Hi, I’m Leah! I’ve been working in veterinary clinics and animal shelters since 2000 and I’ve been a Certified Veterinary Technician since 2006. I spent many years working in small animal, exotic animal, and large animal practices including some emergency hospitals. In 2008, I decided to slow down a bit and started working part time as a CVT and part time in a boarding kennel and pet sitting business and I’ve been pet sitting ever since! 
I currently work full time as a Realtor in the Twin Cities and surrounding areas and I run Wave Your Paw part time. I love being my own boss and having these two careers that work so well together is a dream come true. I also help out at the Avian & Exotic Veterinary Housecall Service to keep all my skills sharp.
I share my life and my home (and most of my food!) with my 3 dogs – Luna, Nimitz, and Eisley, my ginger kitty Weasley, and 2 parrots. I love all things geeky – Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Dr. Who, Lord of the Rings, you name it. I’ve recently gotten hooked on Disney vacations, running, and dog training.

Beckie dog walker pet sitter

I’m Beckie and I am a mid day dog walker at Wave Your Paw, plus I help with the administrative duties. I’ve been a dog walker and pet sitter since 2015 and I’ve also worked in avian care, as a daycare provider for children, and as a teacher. I’m currently semi-retired and enjoy jigsaw puzzles, sewing, and crafting. I have a black and white kitty that rules our household and 2 chatty Quaker parrots.
