About Valerie

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My husband (Tim) and I volunteer and foster dogs for Paws 4 You Rescue, so we have experience with all types of dogs and needs.

We work from home, so we can give dogs the individual attention they need. If your pooch likes to play outside, our yard is a dream, and you can feel secure knowing that it has a six-foot wooden fence all the way around, reinforced into the ground with concrete. If your hound prefers to stay cool, there is plenty of space to lounge around in the A/C.

We live, breathe, think, and speak dog. The reason we love them so much is because they are DOGS, not humans. As animals, they have different needs than we do, and we are dedicated to fulfilling those needs. Leave your dog with our pack, and you'll never look back!

While our rates are lower than reputable cageless boarding facilities, you and your pup get so much more. Your dog gets all the comforts of home, affection, exercise, and 24/7 individual attention due to smaller intake, while you get real-time photos, videos, communication, and total peace of mind.

Nightly Rates ($50 minimum stay):
$30 - small dogs
$40 - larger dogs and puppies

Nightly Discounts:
-$5 - additional dog
-$5 - more than 6 nights

Nightly Extras:
+$5 - medications other than oral

Requirements:
*spay/neuter
*up-to-date vaccines
*flea/tick preventative

What to Bring for the Stay:

We are conveniently located 7 short highway miles from Miami International Airport. Drop-off and pick-up hours are between 10am-7pm. If you need to drop off or pick up outside of that window, it is $10/hour or you can reserve an extra day.

You are welcome to come by and meet us without any commitment to help you make the right decision for you and your best friend. We are always available for this between 10am-7pm Monday-Friday.

We promise you and your dog will love it here. Finally no more worrying, and you can have a perfect vacation!

Valerie hosted our 9 year old Golden Retreiver and our 6 month lab puppy for 5 days. This is the third stay for our golden. She is absolutely wonderful with our dogs. She cares for them just like they were hers. She sends videos and pics regularly so we know that they are fine and happy throughout their stay. I always have peace of mind when I leave our dogs with Valerie.

Valeri and her husband are very good with the dogs. I feel relax when I leave Brandy at their place. This was the second time and it was as good as the first one. Their home is super dog friendly. My dog has plenty of exercise and she can share time with the other dogs. A very good experience.

Our puppy had a great experience with Valerie. We have a 7 month old Havanese. He got along great with Valerie's dogs and She kept us informed with frequent picture and video updates. Valerie was very accommodating as I had to drop off my dog early and pick him up late. We'll be using Valerie again.
