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).

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!

Lauren, Pet Sitter

Hi, I’m Lauren. I recently just moved down to San Diego for school and can’t wait to explore the area. I absolutely love animals and the joy they bring to everything. I’ve always had dogs growing up and will never not have one in my life. I have years of animal care experience including working at a doggie daycare! Growing up I’ve had bunnies, horses, frogs, and fish. I love meeting new people and their beloved pets. Im comfortable with all sizes, shapes, and energy levels.

Hanna, Pet Sitter

Hi, I’m Hanna. I moved to San Diego right after I got married so I am still new to the area but I love to see what awaits for me here. I grew up with pets my entire life. They were my family and friends. They loved me and I loved them in the same way or even more. After moving to San Diego I begin fostering animals that were brought from Mexico and also help them look for a good home. That is why I understand when you need someone trustworthy to take care of your precious pets that are like family to you. I love being around animals and I’m comfortable with all sizes and personalities. Please be at ease because I will treat and love your pets like their our my own.

*Hanna is also trilingual in Korean and Spanish. Hablar Español.

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.

Lise, Pet Sitter

Hi! I’m Lise and I grew up in Japan and have had dogs and cats as “family” my entire life. My family and friends call me the “cat whisperer.” I have a soft spot for shy and senior pets. I have the patience to take care of senior pets at their pace. As a pet owner that used to travel extensively for business, I understand the needs of providing pet parents with peace of mind during their absence. You can rest assured that your pet will be taken care of with TLC as I would my own.
