About Valerie

21 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello, My name is Valerie. I have grown up with Dogs, cats, Parrots, you name it, I've had it ! I currently have 5 parrots and 3 dogs who fill my life with joy. I also Foster Parrots for a local rescue when I am needed. . I currently have a large home with my family, full access to the yard and plenty of play room. After work everyday Harley, and I go for an hour long walk (Giggio is blind). I also have some schooling on dog training so I am happy to teach new tricks if asked to do so. I prefer not to have any dog/food aggressive babies, as I will not tolerate fighting. Other than that I will make your dog feel loved and you will have no worries as long as they are with me. I do apologize about the strict no refund policy, I have had bookings that were cancelled last minute and it could've been your baby that I would've been watching those days. This is my dream job, and yes someday I would love to go full time. Thank you for your time and trusting me to care for your family members. xoxo

Valerie saved our Thanksgiving!

We just moved to PA from out of state and don't know many people, let alone a dog sitter. A few days before Thanksgiving, our original dog sitting plans fell through last minute and we didn't know what to do. Luckily, we found Valerie and she kindly agreed to watch Tag (our dog child) over the holiday.

Not only did she help us last minute, but offered to have a prior meet-and-greet and pick Tag up from the house!

Thanks Valerie for giving us (and Tag) some "brotherly love" and warm welcome to Philadelphia!

If we are ever in need again, we will take Tag to Valerie's place!

Valerie is great! Baxter loved his time with her. She sent pictures throughout the entire weekend. It was nice to see how Bax fits in with the other dogs there. When we picked him up, she had washed his bed and even gave him a bath! We had a wonderful experience and we'll definitely be bringing Baxter back.

Valerie saved my pup when another sitter couldn't handle 3 dogs in her home. Within an hour Valerie came to rescue my dog driving across the city to pick her up without hesitation. Valerie took such great care of Fiona that she's my first choice sitter!! Great pictures, updates, and prompt communication.
