About Valeria

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a night class graduate student (6-9pm) at the University of Maryland. I recently moved to Silver Spring from NYC.

In New York, I hosted dogs & cats from the NYC Animal Care and Control shelter system as an approved foster. I have been exposed to all breeds and personalities, including special needs, medical, and behavioral issues. I love every pet that steps into my home equally, and will make sure he/she gets the quality and level of care and compassion you'd give at home. I'm also a proud DogVacay Community Mentor, meaning I have interviewed and approved many other local dog sitters and would happy to give you referrals if need be!

While staying with me, your pet will get to know Ellie, my 6 year old sheltie (she is very cool with other pets). I'm happy to accommodate both dogs and cats (Message me for pricing details by clicking on the “Ask Host a Question link” on the right side of my page!), I like to go for long walks, and I live by a fenced in "bark park" in a very animal friendly community

Price of $40 is for a 24 hour period**. This includes 3 walks (relief or 30 minutes depending on your dog's needs), food & water based on her/his schedule, medication administration if needed (including injections), play time and daily updates with fun photos and videos!

**Additional fees apply for 1 hour walk/walks, puppies, dogs not house trained, more than 3 walks per day and odd hour pickup/drop off (before 8am after 10pm)

Valeria took excellent care of my baby! And what's more important is that he was very happy staying with her! My dog is diabetic and is also blind, and he seemed at ease with her as if he has known her forever! I was very pleased; it is obvious that she is a dog person and enjoys taking care of them :)
I am looking forward to having Russell stay with her again.

Valeria was amazing! She watched our Goldendoodle puppy and Yorkie for about a week in October. We received lots of pictures, texts, and videos, which gave us so much peace of mind while being away. Our dogs are not easy....one is super anxious and terrified, and the other is a puppy used to a fenced in yard - not a leash! Valeria handled this with ease, and the dogs had free roam of her place so they were comfortable, plenty of walks in which Valeria helped train them with the harness leash, and our Yorkie was calm by the second day in (unheard of while away!). Additionally, while in Valeria's care, our Goldendoodle unexpectantly went into her first heat. Valeria was so calm, caring, and professional and took such great care of her. I can't stress enough what a great foster dog parent Valeria was and look forward to using her again!

Valeria was great. Our dog had a great time with her and she really went above and beyond in making it convenient for us. Highly recommend her.
