Meet Our Precious Petcare Team

Leila Offner, Owner

Leila, the owner and founder of Precious Petcare, is the woman version of Cesar Millan. She is so good with animals that they instantly get attached to her. Her positive and friendly energy attracts both cats and dogs. She grew up with Labrador Retrievers in Japan and helped her Father train Labs to become service dogs. On top of her training background she also works with dogs with anxiety and separation issues. She moved to San Diego in 2008 and after leaving the hospitality industry she decided to pursue her career in her love for animals. After obtaining her pet CPR and first aid training she decided to start Precious Petcare. She is also a proud member of the NAPPS (National Association of Professional Pet Sitters).

*Leila is also bilingual in Japanese. 日本語可能です

She is the best pet sitter in San Diego! She constantly texted me how my dogs are doing, and always answers my call/text even during night.

日本語も通じる、とても親切なペットシッターさんです。

Pet Owner

We’ve been extremely happy with Leila’s dog walking services over the last few months. She is responsible, trustworthy and accommodating. We were apprehensive at first about hiring a dog walker but we are so happy we did.

Alex, Pet Sitter

Alex is a San Diego native who has a passion for helping others. Before becoming a pet sitter with us she cared for elderly and disabled adults. She is currently a student at the local community colleges as well as SDSU with a major in Speech-Language Pathology. She has always loved animals and has an extensive fur-family of her own. Pictured with her is her dog, Kinaya. She has experience with traditional pets as well as feathered and aquatic varieties. Her goal is to treat each pet she cares for as if it was one of her own!

Sara, Pet Sitter

Hi, I’m Sarah and I’ve been pet sitting for over 6 years! I moved to San Diego for college and began pet sitting as a way to help pay for school, but over time it quickly became more of a passion rather than a profession. I love meeting new pets and making them feel loved and special while their family is away, and I pride myself on treating each pet as if they were my own. I have experience with pretty much every type of pet imaginable and I’m very comfortable with pets of all ages and energy levels!

Lisa, Pet Sitter

I’ve been an animal lover since I was a very small child and working with animals is my passion! It’s hard to call it work when you love what you do! I’ve been a veterinarian assistant since 2011, I started pet sitting in 2012. I have a wide range of skills but, I pride myself the most in the fact that animals feel comfortable around me and generally we tend to bond quickly. I couldn’t imagine doing anything else as I feel it is my calling to just make animals’ lives better!

Christina De Leo, Pet Sitter

Hi my name is Christina and I and an animal addict. My first college degree was veterinary technology with special interest in behavior and although that was a lifetime ago I have never truly left the profession at heart. I have been fostering for animal rescues for the past several years and always pet sitting for friends. My own two rescue dogs are Milo (now 14yo Jack Russell and Chili, 9yo German Shepherd) I currently enjoy birds and dogs in my own house and every other species I get to spend time with everywhere else. Pets are truly special and I treat them like my kids. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for entrusting us with yours. I will make sure they feel loved and spoiled for you.
