About Valerie

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Valerie and my husband is William. We are new to Eagle River and are from Houston, Texas. We have a year old puppy, Maximus and he is a Lab/Beegle mix breed that we adopted from the county. The first 6 months we had him, we brought him to dog parks regularly & daycare once a month to ensure he plays well with others. We also took him to a 6 week beginners obedience class. We also have an 11 year old Orange Tabby cat, that keeps to herself mostly. I am a Massage Therapist and I work from home.

I have pet sit for friends for the past 14 years which I did at the their home, but now that I am married, I will only have your dog stay with us. We have a fully fenced in back yard. Puppies must be potty trained and I also require them to sleep in a kennel at night and also when I leave the house.

Maximus loves to play with friends. I would also take them on 1 - 2 walks per day.

My wife and I, cannot thank Valerie Long enough for the care she provided our beloved K9,Hatcher Jack, during his recent stay at her home.

We have never before used a commercial boarding facility for Hatcher, because we feel they do not provide a comfortable enough (home environment) setting. That is far from the experience Hatcher had staying with Valerie. Valerie eased our worries with constant updates as well as pictures of Hatcher having fun. He was just as happy when we picked him up as he was when we dropped him off.

For anyone looking for a local area Dog Vacay, we wholeheartedly recommend Valerie and look forward to using her again in the future.

I am an dog rescue volunteer and board member, and am very particular about who I choose to care for my dogs while I am away. Valerie is a trustworthy person and excellent with my dogs. She is conscientious and honest, and goes above and beyond to make sure your home and animals are well cared for. She has taken care of my dogs for me while we were on vacation multiple times, and I feel very comfortable trusting her in our home, and trusting her to love on and care for my dogs while we are away.

Valerie has had dogs of her own since she was a little girl. She is very loving and caring toward all pets and has taken great care of our dog, Bella, several times. Bella is a seven year old Labrador who loved playing with Valerie's dog. She keeps Bella on schedule with feeding time and walks. She will also brush Bella to keep her coat clean and shiny. She has proven to be very dependable and we don't worry at all when Bella is in her care. I highly recommend her.

We have had Valerie Long watch our dogs numerous times. We have 2 indoor dogs and 2 outdoor dogs. We had Valerie stay at our house. She is extremely trust worthy. We have one dog who is very challenging and our dog took to Valerie instantly. Valerie spends a lot of quality time with the dogs. We highly recommend Valerie as a dog sitter/ house sitter.

Valerie has demonstrated excellent interaction not only with her dog but also with my dog on a regular basis. My dog is somewhat apprehensive around people he is not familiar with and Valerie is always very kind and gentle and makes it easy for my dog to become relaxed when she is around.

I have seen Valerie with dogs in various situation at a park or outside and she is always in control of her dog and very caring.

Valerie would be a wonderful caretaker of dogs or other animals.

Valerie is an incredible, loving, and caring pet sitter. She watched our dog Sam when we had to leave town. She took the time to make sure that Sam had the time she needed to run out her energy since she is a heeler. Sam was always so happy to see Valerie that I knew she treated her with loving hands.

What makes Valerie great with animals is built inside of her...she is a carrying person. I once remembering reading that how a person treated animals is how they treat people. Well that is her. She sat for us for a week and I can tell you the girls (yes that was our doggies) loved her. Even after we came home they would go to her.

Not only is she a caring and loving person, but she throws her all into making sure my Chocolate Lab has all the attention and love that she needs at all times.
Valerie has taken care of our dog as if it was her own. So much so, at times I wasn't sure our Bella wanted to come home or stay with her.
She has always been extremely reliable, and I have always felt my dog was safe, well fed, watered and exercised appropriately while in her care.
Finally, she is well mannered, competent individual who gives 100% when caring for our pet.

I have known Valerie Arrington Long for the past six years. She has impeccable character and would be a blessing in caring for any animal. She is kindhearted, yet is disciplined and has a great love for any animal.
She has watched our two beloved Boxers, Emmee and Xena for several years. You will not find anyone more dependable and trustworthy than Valerie. She will ensure the safety and well-being of any animal in her care. She loves the outdoors and will make sure they get plenty of exercise.
We never had any concerns while we were away, knowing they were being loved and care for. Our girls LOVED Valerie!

It is with great pleasure that I can truly give an A+ rating to Valerie for the care she would provide for any animals, or in our case, our beloved “other children”.
