About Valerie

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have 8 years of professional domestic animal care. At 13 started going frequently to Colombia to help family start a rescue for animals in need in the district of Cundinamarca in Bogota and wanted to start making an impact here in the states so I started volunteering at the human society when I was 16 years old and worked in local pet shops. With all that experience I decided to start my own business in pet care and so Dharma Pet Care was founded in addition to pursuing my career and going to Veterinary Technician school.

Our mission at Dharma is to help Pet parents pick the best affordable care for their non human children. We offer a number of services such as Dog walking , Pet sittin ,Bathing and Boarding over night(Small to Medium sized dogs, Rodents, Birds and other) .

Little bit about myself :
Growing up in a farm I was always curious about animal and what i could do to help them; from something as small as bathing the family dog to assisting in calf delivery as a little girl . My love for animals never stopped growing and because of that i took it upon myself to start my path in the veterinary field as a veterinary technician and as well as starting my own business to care for animals as my knowledge and appreciation for them keeps expanding. I can truly say that I love what I do and what I will do in the future with my business and my profession as the years go by.

Valerie is the most honest,responsible,outgoing,funny,caring person I have ever came across. The way she treats my pets like if they were her own. Every time I see her she has the biggest smile on her face especially around my dog bias . She loves to go on walks with me and him and there's nothing more she enjoys then when we go to the beach with bias and she's never late he enjoys her company since I am always at work. She treats my pets and her pets like family and any animal she comes in contact with honestly. She's studying to be a vet tech and there is honestly no one else I would ever trust with my pet that's not Valerie. I am sure you will feel the same once you meet her.

Valerie is amazing with animals, not only because she has prior experience with animals because of pet supermarket, but because of the way she takes care of her own animals and the fact that she's studying to become a vet tech. That way she is able to help cure animals and care for them better then she already does. She has found homes for stray animals and has nurtured them to health in her own home. She is an amazing care giver for animals it's in her nature. She will be an amazing care sitter.

Valerie is the best! She's definitely a life saver. Had a vacation planned and my usual sitter who is my neighbor fell through. Luckily thanks to this app and Valerie I was still able to go while knowing my dog was safe. She is very attentive and extremely communicative. Sent me progress videos and photos each day to let me know how my lil guy was doing. Definitely will use her services again and she is highly recommended in my opinion. A+++
Thank you so much for taking Stella on last minute. She had a great time and came home happy and relaxed. Much appreciated
Valerie was fantastic. We had a bit of an emergency with our normal dog sitter unable to watch our pup so we found Valerie, and she was able to take Abby in on short notice for the week!

She provided picture and video updates, and even gave Abby a fresh bath for when we picked her up! We would recommend Valerie to anyone, and will likely continue to use her in the future!
