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.

Mackenzie, Pet Sitter

Hi my name is Mackenzie! And I love cats and dogs! I have a specialty dealing with dogs who have been rescued, we instantly connect and they always seem to feel safe in my presence! Most of my life I’ve owned Dogs and cats, and have had experience walking and caring for all types of breeds! I currently have a Maltese that I’ve had since I was 13 and love working for Precious Pet Care building even more relationships with clients and their precious pets! And pictured here is Coco, and I enjoying a view of the harbor after our fun walk by the bay! I love my job!

Kaydee, Pet Sitter

Hi I’m Kaydee! I love all animals of all shapes and sizes and truly feel it is my duty to protect and give love to everything we coexist with. I treat every pet as though they are my own and my goal is to give  every pet the same companionship I feel I get from them in return. I’ve had the same two dogs my whole life, many fish, and dream of
getting a cat one day! I have volunteered at dog events since 2016 and have vounteered to care for exotic animals as well. I look forward to meeting clients and their furry family and creating new friendships to
make everyone, and myself, happy. I have worked for Precious Petcare since 2018 and I’ve loved every second of It!

Kayla, Pet Sitter

Howdy! My name is Kayla, I was born and raised in San Diego with a love for art, fashion, people, and animals! I grew up surrounded by animals and a strong supporting family; my love for them will never fade. My range of work experience includes work in vet assistance, retail, art
installation/curation, & design work! It has been such a pleasure working with Leila and Precious Petcare so far, and I hope I can meet
more wonderful people and pets throughout this journey!

Kirsty, Pet Sitter

Hi! My name is Kirsty, I’m from New Zealand but I currently live in San Diego. I graduated University last year and couldn’t wait to move to the US and experience everything  it has to offer!

I grew up having pet birds, a cat and a dog, who is currently back home in NZ  (pictured right). Being around animals is what makes me happy, which is why I became a volunteer last year at my local SPCA and now a pet sitter! I love meeting new clients and their pets, and seeing the relationship they have with them. All pets have their own unique personality, so it always makes for a fun and interesting job!
