Valerie did an amazing job taking care of my kitties and betta fish! I can tell she loves animals and is there to help them feel comfortable and happy. She also helped me feel better being away from them with cute photos and updates. Definitely would ask her to pet sit again!

Valerie has been fantastic with my nervous 5 y/o boxer who just came from a rescue. Not only did she do a fantastic job putting him back in his crate after the walk (which is challenging) but she's very easy to communicate with & understands how to help reinforce good behavior & obedience skills.

Valerie was great! She and Jeter hit it off right away and she was a great communicator.

Ultimate Animal Lover

************My Availability & Service Area************
I am open to providing services in the Cedar Mill neighborhood and connected neighborhoods (north of US 26). I do not have a set schedule so my availability varies by week but I'm sure we can work something out, just message me!

I am a student at PSU and work part-time at an optometry office and at Mud Bay. I've always loved animals and working at Mud Bay has inspired ...

What Valerie would like to know about your dog

I do not have any breed preferences. As long as the dog is not aggressive and does not have a high prey drive (cats in the home) then we are good to go. The more information you can give about your furry friend the better. Do they have any quirks or preferences I should know about? Dietary restrictions? Resource guarding? Separation anxiety? Let me know and I will do my best to accommodate :)

Oral Medication Administration
Senior Dog Experience

I live in the middle of several different trails which allows for lots of fun walks. I also like to incorporate games like nose/scent work and puzzles. Does your pup need some help reinforcing basic manners? I am familiar with clicker training and can assist in making sure your dog is practicing his/her manners. My pup completed basic manners and continues training classes so I have picked up a lot of great tips and tricks. I am a firm believer in positive reinforcement and would love to help pups polish their skills in any way I can. Those kitties love play time too! I have a variety of toys, puzzles and treat dispensers that can keep them feeling frisky.
