Valerie is the first person I ask to watch my dog when I'm away! She's extremely responsible and a huge animal lover. She treats animals like family, so I know my dog is not only getting awesome care while I'm gone but is getting tons of love and attention too. 10/10 would recommend!

Valerie is a fantastic dog person! She is friendly, upbeat, and obviously loves/cares for dogs.

I have two dogs, a Shetland Sheepdog and an Australian Shepard. I'm convinced that Valerie is their favorite person in the whole world. As soon as she walks in the door, my dogs get super happy and excited to see her.

I would highly recommend Valerie as a walker. She also has experience working in a veterinary clinic, so ...

I'll Love Your Dog Like My Own

Could you imagine a world without animals, especially dogs? I certainly don’t want to even entertain that possibility because they bring so much joy and meaning to our everyday lives. I have a Yorkie named Dixie-Cup but I usually call her my little Puppup. She’ll be turning ten on April Fool’s Day but I swear she still thinks she’s a puppy, strutting around with all this pep and energy. She’s ...

What Valerie would like to know about your dog

I think meet and greets are best. Your dog will get to meet/get to know me in a local place and not have to feel territorial. I like to let the dog sniff me first to get a sense of who I am. I don't have any breed preferences, but I would like for you to give me a little information on your dog’s personality, diet, medications, triggers, routines, etc. I will make sure to keep constant communication with the owners and will send them pictures and videos of their pet. I will always have my phone on me in case you need to get a hold of me or ask me to do something. I will treat your pup with the same love and respect that I give to my own fur baby.

When Valerie watches your pet

My neighborhood has a really nice natural trail that I frequent with my dog. There are also conveniently placed doggy poop bags/trash cans located along the trail, just in case nature calls. I'm new to San Antonio, but I am up to checking out new places that are dog friendly––maybe a little dog park, or a nice cafe. My fur baby, your fur baby, and I could go explore all that the city has to offer.
Afterwards, we will go home and snuggle up on the couch or play with some of her toys until it's time for her nap. My everyday schedule is pretty laid-back, so it really depends on what your dog loves to do!
