About Diana Vala

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello my name is Diana and I am a dog-lover! I am 25 years old and am originally from Bethesda, MD. Currently I have a BA and Masters in accounting and am a Certified Public Accountant in the state of Virginia. I used to take care of dogs when I lived with my parents, but they moved to Florida and took the dogs with them. I currently share an apartment for rent with a roommate in Falls Church, and I would love the opportunity to get to care for dogs part-time until I have my own place. I work as a tax accountant at a public accounting firm in Tysons Corner, so ideally the areas I am willing to travel to for dog sitting include Arlington/Tysons/McLean/Falls Church. My work schedule is somewhat flexible so I can work from home when needed and can come to and from work as needed. I am extremely responsible, caring, and trustworthy, Anyone who knows me can tell you how much I adore dogs of all kinds, and would love opportunities to care for them. I am also very active and love the outdoors, I run and play soccer, and love dog walking/running. If you are interested in hiring me as a part-time sitter for your pup please contact me!

Diana is eager to watch pups and provide them with love and attention. She has created a small oasis for dogs in the downstairs area of her home complete with a drinking and eating area and a large pouf for pups to relax on.

While she does work full time, she makes it a point to come home every day on her lunch break to walk pups. She is also a very active person and will be sure to take long walks (and even runs!) with your pup should they need that level of exercise.

You can tell Diana loves pups and will take excellent care of yours during their stay!

Diana is the best!! My dog absolutely adores her and all of the energy that she brings. Noor and Diana went for a couple runs, which really helped take the "edge off" this very excitable breed. I totally recommend her!
She was awesome!
My 2 dogs were in great hands. Diana was reliable and easy toward with.
Diana let us know when she arrived at our house and when she was preparing to leave in the morning. Our pups were happy and well taken care of when we returned.
I got regular pictures of my pup and she was very accommodating to making sure he was taken care of!
Diana did a great job sitting my two dogs. She stayed in our home overnight and I left my girls feeling confident and assured they would be in great hands. She sent pictures and they seemed to have a great time. One of my dogs has anxiety issues and Diana made her feel safe and loved while we were away. I highly recommend. Thanks, Diana!

Bella was in such good hands with Diana! She came over earlier than she had to in order to get acquainted with the house and Bella. Diana sent updates each day. We felt really comfortable having her watch Bella in our home and would certainly hire her again. In fact, Bella misses her--and seems to be snubbing us since we are back home! Sounds like she had some serious royal treatment while we were away. We would highly recommend Diana!

Highly Recommended!!

We conducted multiple interviews since our usual sitter was unavailable and Diana by far gave us the best impression. She was quick to respond to my initial query, followed up via text to confirm our meet and greet and arrived on time. Diana seemed to connect with our dog immediately and asked all the important questions. Her sincerity and maturity put us at ease with leaving the care of our dog up to her.

Diana was fantastic! She responded to my message very quickly to get the first meet and greet set up. She came by my apartment to meet Dottie and Dottie absolutely LOVED Diana! Diana came and stayed at our place for the weekend and sent pictures and updates. I definitely look forward to using Diana in the future, she was absolutely a fantastic sitter!

Diana was great! This was my first time leaving my dog with someone she had only recently "met" - so i was hesitant at first, but Diana did a great job of texting me photos and updates throughout the stay and kept me feeling calm! I will definitely be using Diana's services again.

My dog Sierra had a great stay with Diana. Diana is very responsive and met me and my dog for a meet and greet before the stay. She also sent me updates while I was out of town so I didn't have to worry about my dog. Diana also took my dog on a nice hike, which I really appreciated because it is one of the things that my dog really loves. I would highly recommend Diana to other dog owners who are looking for a caring and responsible person to watch their pet while they are out of town.

Diana replied right away for our last minute request for a dog sitter and she offered to come by after work for a meet and greet. Our big golden retriever liked her a lot and she did not mind (or at least she did not complain) about the dog hair all over her pants.

We were nervous about leaving him but she always replied promptly when we texted to check on him and she took him for lots of long walks.

Overall, it worked out well and we would use her again, for sure.

Diana was absolutely amazing! I cannot say enough... I travel a lot for work, and I have an Australian Shepherd mix. If you know anything about the breed - they require LOTS of exercise! I was gone for 2 1/2 days and made a simple request that Diana take my pup with her on her daily runs. Not only did she take my 2 year old for fun outdoors, but she took her to her favorite trail and did 6 miles outside with her on the weekend! This makes my pup incredibly happy to be outside, in the fresh air on a run. She sent me daily photos and updates which made me feel in touch while I was away. I came home, my pooch was happily tired (which made Mommy happy), and my apartment was so clean. Diana had folded the blankets, ran the dishwasher and left everything just as I had when I left. She even left a kind typed note on the counter for me to come home to. She administered my pups meds and food, and ensured she was just sleepy enough that I didn't have to take her out for a long walk after traveling. I will certainly ask Diana to sit for my dog again, and I feel very safe with her looking after my best friend.

Diana was fast at responding emails, and even came out to our house to meet our dog (at our request). She even offered to pick up our dog so make our lives easier. Our dog had a blast with Diana. Diana took him to the dog park, and when we came back home he was so tired that I imagine he had a lot of fun at the park. I would recommend Diana, and we would certainly use her again.

Diana is lovely and wonderful. She was super-responsive and accommodating. She adjusted her schedule and picked up and dropped off our dog at our house to allow us an easier time of getting to and from the airport for our trip. Our dog loved all the attention and can't wait to visit Diana again!

Diana is amazing with her communication, literally 30 seconds after I sent my request she texted me saying she was available. She also took the time to text me during the weekend I left my puppy with her to give me updates. Diana was very kind during drop off/pick up of my dog and her home is in an awesome location.

My pup was happy with her ears up and tail wagging when I got there to pick her up and slept in the car ride all the way home. (Diana had her at the dog park!)

I plan on utilizing Diana's service again in the future should I need a sitter and I would recommend anyone else to do the same.
