About Valle

45 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I specialize in large dogs!

I am a lifetime dog owner and lover. I am a career psychiatric nurse and prison analyst, now retired. I have had at least one dog all of my life. I managed a prison pup program in the California Department of Corrections Division of Juvenile Justice for 4 years, where I assisted and oversaw a program where shelter dogs were trained by prison inmates and then adopted out. I have worked with various dog rescue programs and have fostered for and adopted from dog rescues. I have a wonderful dog friendly home in North Tustin, Ca where your dogs will be able to roam freely including a doggy door that is always open to a beautiful large sundeck and grassy backyard. Plenty of area to roam and play! If staying overnight, your pup will be able to sleep anywhere in the home, but will be taught to stay off the furniture. This is a no no in my home that dogs learn easily, except for the dogs bedroom that has a window seat and a bed dogs are allowed on. If your dog is crate trained, please feel free to bring your crate. I do not prefer to crate dogs, but will if that is your dogs comfort. I will only board 1-2 dogs at a time, to allow for special attention for your pup who may be distressed at your leaving. I will not leave your dog while boarding, unless it's an emergency and then no more than an hour. If mutually agreed upon, we may travel to the dog beach occasionally. Over the years, I have learned an exclusively positive dog training method, so while never a trainer, I have lots of experience. My rates are a little higher due to these specifics, but you will find it is well worth it. For company, your dog will have my beautiful rescue dog Lola, who is a fine ambassador of doggy good will with great behavior. I prefer larger dogs to visit. Please come for a meet and greet and see how lovingly your dog will be cared for!

Valle provides and fun and loving environment for our dog. She makes him feel secure and he enjoys visiting his buddy, Lola (not to mention the hours of fun he has playing tether ball). We are grateful to have found a place we are comfortable leaving our precious boy whenever we are out of town.

Valle and I are friends and Blu has had several play dates with Lola, but this is the first time he has stayed over night. Valle was kind enough to send me updated photos and good morning videos to let me know he was enjoying himself. Valle treats our four legged friends as if she is taking care of your two legged children. You do not need to worry if your dog is left in her care.

Very friendly and accommodating. Izzy had so much fun playing with Valle's dog Lola. We are so grateful for the care and time Valle spent making Izzy feel at ease on her first time away from home. We will definitely be back.
Valle was kind enough to accommadate us at the very last minute while we were on vacation in SoCal. She has a dog name Lola, that Milo had a blast hanging out with. Valle has an awesome "dog room" for her dog and guests, which I thought was great. Valle allowed Milo to sleep wherever, to make sure he was comfortable because he has anxiety when it comes to leaving his parents! Milo is a very high energy dog, so Valle's spacious home allowed my best friend to run around and play! We will definitely use Valle again next time we are in town. Milo definitely loved Valle and Lola!
