Val was great! She kept me updated on activities happening at home while I was away. She was very loving towards our dog Buddy. I would recommend Val to anyone looking for a dog sitter. She was responsible and respectful towards our house and left it as she found it. I felt very comfortable leaving my dog and home in her hands.

Val does such a great job of keeping us updated on how our fur babies are doing, she is great with them and our shy rescued chihuahua even cuddles with her. The dogs seems so calm and happy when we get back, it's great to have that assurance while we are away.

Qualified Pet Travel Enthusiast!

My name is Valerie. I’m an honest, fun, and personable animal lover. Some of my favorite things to do are to go for hikes, take walks and be outside. I’m offering my services to be a traveling pet sitter and dog walker. One of my favorite dogs is the Australian Shepherd because of their high energy and intelligence, but I love all dogs equally. I'm a business grad from Western Washington University.

What Valerie would like to know about your dog

I like all dogs. My favorite are medium sized high energy dogs! I love to go on long hikes or walks with dogs that can go on or off leash! I can also take care of other pets: cats, rabbits, lizards, hamsters, chinchillas, birds, chickens etc.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I have open availability and love to spend time with the animals I'm taking care of. Belly rubs included!
I also enjoy taking the perfect photo of your pets!

Extra house-sitting services
I'm available to watch after the house including tasks such as collecting mail, taking out the trash, watering plants, cleaning or whatever else is needed. Anything within reason. Or if you don't have pets, I can house sit too!
When I'm at your house I'm respectful of your property and I won't bring over any guests. I try my best to leave your house as if I was never there!
