Apex Dog Care

Lesley co-founded Peak City Puppy in 2008 with a desire to create an entirely new service experience for Triangle pets and their owners:  a professional pet care company built with the pet owner in mind. Lesley handles all screening and hiring of new team members and personally trains her team on Peak City Puppy standards of care.

She has a graduate degree in from UNC-Chapel Hill and spent a decade in the fast-paced corporate healthcare industry. Ten years as a road warrior provided Lesley with an appreciation for the unique challenges facing busy working professionals:  finding reliable, flexible and affordable pet care. Too often, boarding kennels were full or inflexible with her work schedule, while private pet sitting experiences ranged dramatically in quality of service.

Lesley and her husband live in Apex with their two young daughters and three dogs:  Jersey, Parker & Scout.


Trisha L. lives in the Cameron Park neighborhood in Apex with her husband and sons.  She has personally been a Happy Client at Peak City Puppy since 2009, for care of her two large-breed mix dogs, Jake and Hurley.  Trisha graduated from Meredith College in Raleigh and has owned several businesses.  Her professional background is in food catering and sales.

Trisha loves to walk, and enjoys being outdoors on mid-day dog walks with clients like Sadie, Milo & Lizzie. Trisha’s passion for pets can be attributed to her kind heart and youthful spirit!


Lori is a native North Carolinian who currently resides in Apex with her husband, four sons and four furry babies: 1 dog, Coco and 3 cats, Mr. Kitty, Rosh and Lil Monster. A former stay at home mom, Lori has been with Peak City Puppy since 2013 and was promoted in the Spring as the Apex Territory Manager. Lori graduated from Mount Olive College with a BS in Human Resources.

Lori loves to read, walk, go camping and spend time at her kids sporting events.




Pet Sitter Erika

Erika loves her job as a pet sitter and dog walker with Peak City Puppy.  Being an only child, Erika always begged for a dog or cat when she was younger, but was unsuccessful in her efforts. Once she lived on her own, she started out small and got one dog, but didn’t stop there. Now she has four fur babies and would have more if her husband would allow it. Her full time job is as a graphic designer working with trade show exhibits in the Raleigh area. Erika is a Jersey Girl at heart, and has since lived in Pennsylvania, Arizona, and currently in Apex, NC. She gradated with a BFA from Marywood University in 2004.
