Valerie walked my dog for 5 weeks, once a day, Monday through Friday. I had just moved to town and needed to work long hours. She sent updates and pictures everyday. The walks always went above and beyond the 30 min I had paid for. I came home to a well-exercised, calm and happy dog- who had been brushed to boot! As a bonus, she is also very good with cats. I highly recommend Valerie ...

Valerie watched all 5 of my pets 3 dogs, 1 cat and a bird while we were on vacation this past July. Valerie is very loving and caring person and wonderful with the animals. She sent pics and videos while we were away and the animals just love her. I would highly recomend her for your pet sitting needs!

Dog Enthusiast

I have always had a great love for dogs. Over the years, I have cared for the pets of family, friends, and neighbors on numerous occasions. I have 4+ years of experience walking dogs at the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast and the Alachua County Humane Society and have been walking dogs here in Gainesville for over a year now. I have reliable transportation, a very flexible schedule, and will make sure your dog ...

What Valerie would like to know about your dog

Age, energy level, and any quirks/problems they may have are helpful information when getting to know your dog. Do they have separation anxiety? Are they aggressive toward other dogs/animals?

I love each and every dog I meet and I don't believe in "dangerous" dog breeds; therefore, I have no particular breed preferences. I have experience working with a variety of dog breeds, big and small, from volunteering at the Humane Society for 4+ years. I personally grew up with a Yorkshire Terrier, and I currently own a Pitbull/Lab/Rottweiler mix.
