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.

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.

Johnny, Pet Sitter

Johnny’s love and compassion for animals dates back all the way to childhood, where he was raised with a variety of German Shepherds all throughout his infancy. Raised a San Diegan, he has had constant exposure to animals of all kinds but of course has a natural affinity for dogs and is a big breed specialist that understands their body language and tendencies. He also has experience with cats, whom he loves to take care of. Having spent some years living in Mexico, he has a soft spot of street dogs, and is very empathic towards strays/animals at the pound. He has educational background at San Diego State University, where he studied Business Administration and has really aided him in life prior to his arrival at Precious Petcare.

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.

Julie, Pet Sitter

Hi, I am Julie. I recently left the corporate world, and it is with great enthusiasm and energy that I am back in the animal care field. I have always loved caring for and surrounding myself with animals of all kinds. I spent 7 years working at the San Diego Zoo, 7 years running my own pet sitting business in Point Loma and Ocean Beach and working at a Veterinary Hospital. I can’t even imagine life without animals whether they are mine or someone else’s. I grew up in the Point Loma area and currently live in Bankers Hill. I am experienced in administering fluids, medications, and insulin for diabetic pets and finding fun ways to give pills to cats. I currently have a wonderful Maltese mix named Zuzu a beautiful Ginger Tabby named Holly. Oh, and my husband John, who shares my passion for animals.
