This pet retreat was a Godsend, I only wish I had found Valerie earlier! I had a lot of concerns about sending my dog away, but I feel really comfortable sending her back here.

Valerie is the best!!! I was so anxious about leaving my dogs with someone other than family. But she made me feel at ease. She sent me pictures and videos daily. Kept me updated with each day. Made this crazy dog mom a lot less stressed. My dogs were pooped when I picked them up. You can tell they had a blast! I will definitely use Valerie again. My dogs loved their stay!! Thanks Valerie ♥️
