About Valerie

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! Thank you for taking the time to view my profile.
My name is Valerie, and I currently live in a studio apartment in Hell's Kitchen. Don't let the small space deter you, for where I lack in space I make up in playtime and outdoor fun! Did I mention I'm on the first floor? Hello senior pups, and lazy loungers alike!

Here at home, I have one small dog who is my absolute everything. He is a 4 year old Cavalier Spaniel/ Pekingese with a face as sweet as his personality. He is extremely easy going and while he can be playful, he's usually just lounging around. He and I enjoy going to the dog park just about every day since his little legs can't really keep up with a Central Park run. He generally sits on the bench and watches the other dogs run around (seriously, he's as mellow as it gets).

+ I do like to go for a run/walk in Central Park every day, so if you have an active dog, this would be a match made in heaven!

My experience with animals goes from before I can even remember. I have been surrounded by animals my entire life; from birds, to rabbits, to horses. I have been a vet tech every summer since high school, so I am well trained when it comes to administering medication and have the experience to know a simple upset stomach from an ER visit. I have experience when it comes to tending post surgical pets, and especially when tending to IVDD prone dogs from both work and personal experience.

I truly cannot even begin to describe just how much love I have for animals, but I can certainly show it through the opportunity of caring for your pup! Sebastian and I are so happy in our little home, and we can't wait to have your pup join in on the fun. I know everyone worries when it comes to leaving a piece of their heart with someone new, but I can sincerely promise you that in my home, your pet will be well taken care of with the same love and attention that I give my own pup.

I am bias as this is my daughter. However the fact is, I served 32 years active military service during. Animals were always at the house especially before I deployed. At one point we had at least six dogs , Golden retrievers, Maltese, Yorkie, St Charles Cavalier just to name a few. This is Valerie's passion next to Fashion design. She will care for your animals in her capable hands as one of her own!

I found myself having to fly to Florida on very short notice due to a family health emergency after living in NY for only 3 weeks! Needless to say, it wasn't an easy time and leaving behind my Gizmo wasn't an easy task.

I found Valerie who made it wasn't an easy time and leaving behind my Gizmo wasn't an easy task.

I found Valerie who made arrangements to meet us right away. Valerie and her dog Sebastian even came to a dog park in my neighborhood for the meeting. As soon as I met them, I knew it was a good match and Gizmo would be in good hands.

Valerie helped me out by picking Gizmo up before my flight and kept me updated the entire time I was away with pictures and videos. He was healthy, happy and even made a new friend in Sebi.

It should be noted that Sebi is a cool, easygoing dog who clearly doesn't mind sharing his space and it's nice that Gizmo had a friend.

Valerie was sweet, kind and thoughtful and I will ABSOLUTELY be calling her any time I need help with Gizmo.

Valerie was super accesible and quick in solving problems.
This was our second time using Valerie during a trip to NYC with our dogs. The best compliment I can give her is that both dogs led me down the hall to Valerie's door. I would highly recommend Valerie and would use her any time I am in New York.
