About us   

It's Not about Us...It's about you and your pets!         

Leader of the Pack sitters and walkers are committed to serving the needs of our customers and their pets.  We are inspired by our own experience as life long pet owners, thus your pet's happiness, health and well-being are our primary concerns.  Leader of the Pack walkers have worked with various breeds and ages of dogs from mutt-i-grees to purebreds.  All of our walkers have experience and a canine passion and are certified in pet first aid.  We pair all of our pet sitters to fit the needs of our customers so you will never have a sitter that has not had experience with the type of animal he or she will be caring for.  We are fully insured and bonded for your protection and peace of mind. 

Leader of the Pack owners, Tari Rutherford and Robert Frediani are Certified as Pet Sitters by NAPPS (National Association of Professional Pet Sitters), a non-profit organization that promotes the value of pet sitting to the public and is an advocate to the welfare of animals by providing education and support to its members.  This Certification includes dog and cat first aid by the American Red Cross. Tari and her family have supported and been involved in organizations such as the Humane Society, ASPCA, North Shore Animal Legue, Pocono Greyhound Rescue, and German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue.  While in NY, Tari has been spending her days as a Manager at Starbucks.  She has managed several locations in Manhattan and in White Plains.  She has decided to hang up her green apron to do something she loves...care for animals.  Tari and Rob are currently the loving parents of a chow/shepherd mix, two cats, and a pitbull rescue.
