About Valerie

9 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi There!

We have two female bichon frises and know how hard it is to leave a four legged family member with someone else while you're on vacation. That is why we signed up to be hosts on Dogvacay! As soon as your furbaby enters our home, we treat them exactly like our Abby and Annie!

We specialize in caring for small dog breeds (dachshund, maltese, bichons, etc). We love all dogs, but in this dog sitting experience we have found our dogs to be most compatible with smaller breeds. We have had experience with older dogs, puppies, giving medication, and giving lots of extra cuddles to those dogs who need it! During your pets vacation, we send lots of pictures and videos so you can rest assured that your furbaby is taken care of well.

We do require one meet and greet before your dog actually comes to stay with us to ensure all dogs will be happy and safe. Before every reservation, we ensure the dogs in our care will all be compatible, and we never take more than we can handle because that's not fair to your furbaby.

We have a large home and yard that is fully secured and the dogs can play in. We do prefer that your dog is kenneled if we go out or at night. This ensures the safety and a good night sleep for everyone!

Our Furbabies
Abby is our 10 year old bichon, who is definitely a diva dog! She's very good with all sizes of dogs.
Annie is our 3 year old bichon who loves to play and be mischievous! She gets along great with all dogs as well but prefers the smaller dogs.

We look forward to meeting you and your furbaby!

I left my 9 year old dog for the first time alone with Valerie for 8 days. I was afraid he would get depressed, since it was his first time away from home. Valerie was an amazing host! Bebe did get sick, and I was unable to respond to Valerie's messages. She took initiative and took him to the vet. I am so happy she did. She took care of Bebe like it was her own dog. She cuddle with him and made him feel loved. I recommend her 100%. She sent me photos and videos of Bebe and kept me updated everyday. Awesome host!
Thanks Valerie.

It was our first time leaving Alven for so long while on vacation, but Valerie and Mark took very good care of Alven! Always kept us updated and they are honestly the sweetest people you will ever meet!! I already started rebooking with Valerie and Mark to take care of my puppy again in a few months! I highly recommend them, you won't be worried at all while you're away!

I had to travel for a month, and I was so nervous about where my puppy would stay. He was still a puppy, very attached with some separation anxiety. honestly I had decided if I don't find the right sitter, I would cancel my plans.

I was lucky enough to meet with Valerie and Mark for a Meet and Greet. I was relieved that I finally found the person I can trust. Valerie welcomed Bruno into her home. She is very kind and you can tell she just loves dogs :)
She went out of her way to fit my puppy in and worked around his separation anxiety slowly.
After I left and received the first set of videos and photos, I made sure that Bruno is having a VERY good time there. My dog even learned a few lessons there that I had hard time to teach him.

I am definitely going to leave Bruno with them again as I'm sure he already misses them.
Valerie and Mark, Thank you so much for all of this!
