Our Team

Lesley White is the founder of Peak City Puppy, a company built around her own four-legged family.  She has three large-breed rescue dogs:  Jersey, Parker & Scout and two young daughters.

As a proud resident of the Peak City of Apex, she is a regular participant in Triangle-area pet advocacy and protection efforts. Her experience as a pet owner has shaped her small business:

“I was frustrated with the lack of good options for our dogs when we moved to Apex. After a few bad experiences with boarding kennels, I looked into in-home pet sitting and found a wide range of quality in service & professionalism. I knew we could use these experiences to build a service that always keeps the pet owner in mind.”

- Lesley White, Owner

All Peak City Puppy team members are over the age of 21 and current or former pet owners themselves.  Prior to meeting with clients, all team members go through a thorough training including coursework and field visits with a Territory Manager.  Team Members are covered under the company’s liability insurance and bonding policies.



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 lives in Apex with their two young daughters and three dogs:  Jersey, Parker & Scout.
