The Best Service For the Best Community
It is our mission to provide outstanding, professional dog walking services to pet owners in our beloved Ventura community. We want to break the paradigm that dog walking and pet sitting is a job to be done by the neighborhood kids. We are coming into your home, handling your keys, and taking the safety and wellbeing of your beloved pets in our hands. That kind of responsibility demands experience, trustworthiness, reliability, and attention to detail.
Also, we believe pet owners deserve to have a professional, streamlined experience with communication, scheduling, and payments, as well as receive visit reports showing where and when we visited your pets with notes and photos from each visit. We do this by using a modern dog walking management software.
We are a licensed, insured, & bonded dog walking company. We are experienced in caring for unique pets, and being responsible for the safety of our client's homes.
Our dog walking app sends you a GPS tracked, time stamped report card with pictures so you get EVERY detail. Our online scheduling system leaves no pet behind.
Compassion & empathy for others is the main driver behind this whole journey. Every team member is a tender heart who loves animals and treats others with kindness.
Clients have 24/7 access to their schedule and account. We keep you in the loop & don't hesitate to update you with any issues or concerns immediately.
We are safety freaks. We are Cat & Dog CPR and First Aid Trained, have plans of action for emergencies, & carry protective gear for potential incidents while out walking.
Owner & Founder
Hi! My name is Kiri. I started Leashed! back in 2017 and have been providing pet care services for Ventura ever since. Here's a little about me.
In addition to growing up with pets ranging from hamsters and cockatiels to dogs, cats, and parrots, I have worked professionally in the Pet Care industry for 6+ years. I have worked as a kennel technician at Canine Adoption and Rescue League (C.A.R.L.). I volunteered for over a year at Santa Barbara Zoo as a Zoo Keeper Aide where I was responsible for the care of the animals in the bird department. I volunteer for Santa Barbara Wildlife by capturing wild birds that need rescuing.
I did all this while obtaining my bachelor's degree in Psychology. I was confused about my career path until I stumbled upon the idea of a dog walking and pet sitting business in 2017. I took an idea and ran with it, never looking back since. I have dedicated my life to caring for animals and pets, and I truly believe I have found my calling.
Connecting with an animal while providing peace of mind to their owner has been the most fulfilling job I have had and could ever imagine. I hope to have you join the Leashed! pack soon!
