About Virginia

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have enjoyed a life with dogs and cats for more than 10 years. I also traveled to different countries with my animals. While I was living in Asia, friends usually looked after each other's pet so I got chance to babysit many dogs - different breeds and size and personality. Overtime I came to really understand and appreciate dog's feeling and behavior under different circumstances. Mostly, I have realized the importance for dogs to have a healthy social life, which definitely help them to live a happy, peaceful and balanced lifestyle. A well socialized dog is also confident, proud and generous with others. I was fashion design lecturer in international college, and now I am working as freelance fashion illustrator and copywriter based in Seattle. I have the luxury to control my working hour while enjoying spending awesome time with my and your dogs. I am new to Seattle so it would be absolutely fun for me to explore the city with dogs next to me. Looking forward to meeting you and your furry kids. Thank you!

We have a five-year-old small dog who was born deaf but is otherwise very healthy. We recently moved to Seattle and have hesitated to leave Bernie--that is until Bernie and we had a meeting with Virginia and her two small dogs.

Virginia took excellent care of Bernie while we were out of town, and when we need to go again, we will call Virginia.

Virginia and her husband took excellent care of our dog, Dumpling. We booked 2 days of daycare with Virginia - on the second day, when we were approaching Virginia's home, Dumpling actually ran towards the home, so we can assume that Dumpling was happy to be there again. Virginia sent us plenty of text, video and picture updates during both daycare sessions. It was clear from the photos/videos that Dumpling was having a fantastic time. Dumpling played with her dogs' toys, walked to Union Lake and enjoyed plenty of treats. Finally, Virginia was also flexible with drop-off and pick-up times.

Virginia genuinely cares for the pets that she watches, and basically took care of Dumpling as though he was her own. I would recommend Virginia and would re-book again when we are in town!
