About Valerie

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are Mac and Val...... Mac is the dog whisperer.... I am the spoiler!
We love dogs! We are interested in this opportunity because we love being outside and having fun with our dogs. We live in a secure home with a fenced backyard. However, we walk our dogs!! Don't think they will be out back all day. I personally do a 1-2 mile walk in the morning and then another nice walk in the evening. My own pets love it, and I hope yours will do.

Why we love dog sitting
We have been pet owners all of our lives. There has always been a dog in the family or a long term "visitor". We enjoy small to large dogs and love to go on walks.

About our yard
The back yard has a deck and is completely fenced in. We live in a townhouse, so the yard is small. However, my dogs love to run in circles and play with balls there. Also, we walk to the local park which is only a few blocks away. There is a large field where the dogs can run.

Our experience administering medication
I am comfortable with administering well care medication. I, Valerie, will administer all meds, any shots, or care for special medical situations. I am very attentive and supportive of your dog's particular needs.

Training-
We are now offering dog training for 1 week or longer basis. Dog training includes your dog staying for a minimum of seven consecutive days with Mac, the Dog Whisperer. The length of stay depends on the behavior/training that is necessary. Consecutive days are important because your dog will need to be in an environment that is distraction free. This training includes the contracted days of working with your dog and a 30 minute human training as well. 9 times out of 10...... your dog is responding to your energy. Sugar "Mac" McMillian, the Dog Whisperer, can work with your dog and you to rechannel the energy in your home and get your dog on track and put you in place as leader of the PACK!

We can handle:
Anxiety
Food Aggression
Aggressive to other dogs or bully behavior
Shyness
Destructive behavior
General commands- stop, sit, lay, stay, come, recognize your name
Proper on leash behavior- No pulling
Learn to love your crate
Leader of the Pack Training
Please inquire for fee: As discussed, training is a minimum of seven nights with drop off on a Sunday after 5 pm and pick up Sunday morning before noon. Personal in home consultation available before starting training.

Excellent experience
Valerie was the caring and considerate sitter we had hoped for when left our dog for his first time. We absolutely will call her next time we vacation and hope she is available. Thank you Valerie. Jagger misses you already.
Thank you so much for being there for us 'last minute folks'. Professional and friendly. I felt confident Pepper was safe and happy.
