About Valerie

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

My family and I pride ourselves as being lovers of all animals (especially dogs) and the outdoors. We are a small family of three that is fortunate enough to have a La Costa home that is ideal for safely caring for a select number of dogs. We fully understand the concern for our dogs when we need to leave town and ensure a secure and fun location for our beloved pets. I am a stay-at-home mom which affords me time to enjoy the company of your dogs.


Our mixed-breed female lab enjoys the companionships of other dogs and looks forward to a full day of play with others! Bella is well socialized and behaved.


Our Carlsbad home offers a completely fenced in mixed-surface backyard that is perfect for playing and lounging. There is also a pool that we allow your dog to swim in if the owners will allow this activity for their dog. Your dog will also enjoy the spacious playroom and free range of the house for secure and warm sleeping if your adventure is an over-nighter.

While we provide ample space for your dogs to roam, play and relax in our home, we will honor the rules of your home (as well as ours) during their stay with us.


We take most breed and ages of dogs with us. We do have a 8 year old boy who is well socialized with dogs. However, to maintain a safe and fun environment for all of our guests, we require the following:

1. Must be good with children
2. Must be spayed or neutered
3. No aggressive or heavy barkers
4. Must be treated for fleas and ticks
5. Must have good manners
6. Must be house-trained
7. Must be current with all vaccines


We do require a meet-and-greet prior to any first time booking to make sure that we are a good fit for your dog.

We ask that you please call or text us prior to your immediate arrival instead of coming straight to the door since we know that most dogs find the doorbell ring disturbing. We want both you and your dog to be comfortable here from the first moment you arrive.


We offer one to two walks per day. Walks will vary from neighborhood strolls to hikes on our nearby trails at Batiquitos Lagoon.


We will send pictures throughout the stay of your dog's activities and overall enjoyment of their stay.

We want to provide the assurance to all of our guest's owners that your dogs will be cared for and loved the manner we would expect for our dog.

Thank you in advance for considering us to care for your family member.

Rocky had a great time at Valerie's home for his vacation. Valerie was friendly, caring and even sent us texts or pictures to keep us updated. Rocky is an older dog and I felt confident leaving him in her care.... He will definitely be coming back! Thank you!

Valerie is a fantastic dog sitter. She knows and loves dogs and they are part of the family. Valerie has taken care of two of my dogs over the years and although they are happy to see me when I come back, they are equally happy when they arrive to Valerie's house. She is great at caring for different dietary needs and getting them the exercise needed. There are only a small handful of people I would trust to leave my dog with and Valerie is at the top of the list.

Valerie is an energetic, loving and responsible parent to her four legged furbaby. I wholeheartedly trust her with my babies when I am away and I have no doubt she will give them the same TLC she gives her own dog.

Val has done an amazing job with my elderly, blind yellow lab Ace! He requires extra guidance and love when away from our home. She is great with medications when needed and extra TLC. I know that Ace gets a lot of attention when he visits the Esquers. He loves the massive yard and pool and upstairs doggy playroom! Thanks Val for loving Ace like your own when he is in your care! He can't wait to come back and I feel better leaving town knowing he's with your family!

Valerie was great. My pup enjoyed the attention, happy environment and beautiful yard + she looked happy when I picked her up. I will look to them for future stays.

Valerie is amazing. My overactive lab mix and bossy yorki mix came home after 4 days exhausted, happy, well fed and no issues!
While away, I received lots of photos, follow up and even questions - all very reassuring! Valerie has so much love for these animals she really makes them part of her family. Can't thank her enough for the peace of mind!
Stella has the BEST day! Hiking, napping, playing, going for walks, chasing a ball - all with her new best friend, Bella! Valerie gave me so much confidence that our girl would be safe and happy - plus she sent me videos and pictures all day long! I feel so good about having Stella here, and I'm already looking forward to sending her to daycare again.
My pups had a great day with Valerie and seemed very content and happy when I came to pick them up. Once they got home they slept so well after their walks and playtime with Valerie and Bella. I would absolutely recommend Valerie and will definitely be bringing them back.
