Hi, my name is Lori and I am the owner of Lori's Leashes, Inc. It has been an incredible journey bringing this business to where it is today and it all started when I fell in love with animals at an early age.
As a young girl I always loved animals, no matter what kind…whether they were furry, scaly, or feathery. I grew up with a golden retriever, had fish, and hermit crabs. Fast forward to today I still have fish and two adorable dogs, Lola & Chloe.
My business didn’t start until I realized that I was in the wrong profession. I taught for eleven years, and while I was passionate about what I did then, I knew it wasn’t exactly where I was meant to be. I had decided to leave the teaching career and start a business that I was even more passionate about; animals. I wanted to care for all kinds and help people, like myself who used to work all day and couldn’t give their fur baby the attention they deserved and needed. You see, my little girl, Lola, had gone to a daycare near the school I taught at. She loved going there, but it just didn’t sit well with me…I was leaving her all day and she wasn’t with me, her mom. The woman that ran the daycare would occasionally send a photo of her running around and having a blast, which completely made my day. Truly…this is where Lori’s Leashes began.
I knew that I could bring SO many people not only happiness by watching their fur baby, but also peace of mind. I sat down and developed everything that makes up what Lori’s Leashes is. From the website, to the colors, to the business cards, and our core values. I wanted to make sure that we stood out to people. This wasn’t going to be just your average dog walking/sitting company. It was going to be an experience. It was going to be great. I trusted my gut with every decision I made…with every person I hired…and with every client we took on. I am proud of who we are, what we do, and what we stand for.
Every day that goes by is truly a blessing to me as I have created something from the heart that I take so much pride in. Each client and their fur babies hold a very special place in my heart and I can say whole heartedly that I truly have the best clients around and my life is better because of each and every one of them. So thank you all for making this job the best job in the world and for trusting my pack to continue to provide the absolute best care to your fur babies.
