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.

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!

Jennifer, Pet Sitter

Hi, I grew up in Oakland and Sacramento and have been living in San Diego for over twenty years now. I am a Registered Nurse and after over 20 years in the field, decided to pursue my true life passions – animals and traveling! I now work for an airline out of San Diego airport part time and fill the rest of my time pet sitting and caring for my own pets! I have the sweetest lab/hound mix pup, just turned 8 yo and two wild and crazy cats, almost 5 yo. I have spent the past 9 years working and volunteering at wildlife rescues, local zoological facilities, humane societies, dog walking and pet sitting and even a year as a Veterinary Technician. I even earned my Associate Degree in Animal Health Management, but prefer the fun roles of playing, walking and hanging out with critters 😉   Know If I am pet sitting your precious fuzzies, they are treated how I would prefer my own to be treated and I have high standards!!!

Janay, Pet Sitter

My name Is Janay Taylor, I am a native of San Diego. I love all types of animal’s! My dream job is to work at the zoo. I don’t own a pet yet. But one day I wish to be a proud dog mom of a boxer. I love to ease your worries by watching your pets so you can enjoy any trip you may have to take.

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!

Alexis, Pet Sitter

Hi there, I’m Alexis! I’m an experienced pet lover, walker, and sitter with 8+ years of pet care experience. I’ve grown up as an independent pet care provider as a way to save up and put myself through school via the best way possible: exercising my absolute love of furry friends! With years of assisting my family’s pet care boarding business in Texas, I’ve handled dogs and cats of all demeanors, along with a myriad of fish/reptile/and bird critters as well- quirks and all! I thoroughly love my work with animals and try to capture on camera as many sweet moments as possible, which I love to share with my pet families!
