Gabby had the best visit with Valerie and Lily Mae!! Valerie is so sweet and sent us tons of pictures and videos so that we knew how great of a time she was ah I got while we were traveling. Gabby loves playing with Lily and the other dogs there and I could tell immediately she felt right at home there! We will be taking Gab back there again next weekend!

Our family, especially our 6-month-old Bandit, cannot rave enough about what I affectionately refer to as Camp Lily Mae. Before our trip Valerie took time to get to know our puppy and make sure Bandit would be comfortable in her home and with her dog Lily Mae who is a sweetheart and even visits patients at UNC REX Hospital. Valerie sent multiple pictures to let us know how happy and content our puppy was. He ...

What Valerie would like to know about your dog

I’d need the name and contact information for your vet and two additional emergency phone numbers in addition to ways to contact you.

I would like to know the dog’s temperament, fears, likes and dislikes. Dog must be up to date on all shots. And dog must be on flea and tick preventative.
Please let me know habits such as jumping fences, being an escape artist , etc. and as much as you can about dogs temperament and habits. I want to keep your dog safe and happy.

I would like to know what your dog enjoys? Fetch? What kinds of toys he/she likes. Is your dog allowed on your furniture ? What training points are you currently working with on your dog? Does your dog chew things ( my daughters dog chews remotes!)

My dog tends to like to entertain young dogs and puppies. She’s like a momma.

When Valerie watches your pet

Neighborhood is great for walking. Our sunroom has 12 windows great for squirrel watching. Large fenced yard. Lots of company all day as we are retired. Plenty of toys! Lily Mae is gentle with her toys so you can bring your dogs favorites as well. My dog loves to play but we also have baby gates to keep dogs separated and allow them to rest.
