Valerie was quick to respond to any questions I had and was constantly giving me updates and sending pictures of Elvis playing while I was gone. She did an amazing job and I highly recommend!

Val has taken care of our dog several times, and our dog is HAPPY when she sees us pull up at Val's house. Our dog is afraid of other dogs and gets really stressed out at the kennel, and most other dogsitters have dogs of their own, so finding a dogless dogsitter was great!

We chose DogVacay for our 12 year old rat terrier, and we are so glad that we selected Valerie T to provide Sheba's first "doggie vacation". The visit proved to be a very positive experience. It was obvious to us that Valerie and other family members gave Sheba a lot of time and attention and made her feel comfortable. Valerie sent texts and pics to keep us updated during Sheba's 3-day stay. If you prefer ...

Your dog is the ONLY dog! Home FT

SEPT 2018: We currently have two young very rambunctious kittens and so are being very careful about the dogs we sit. Picture two 3-pound balls of fluff chasing each other noisily up and down the length of the house, up and over furniture, ambushing one another and wrestling for a few moments, then starting all over again. If that doesn't sound like something that would probably make your dog open an eye, give a yawn ...

What Valerie would like to know about your dog

Our yard is small and not completely fenced, so if your dog needs super-frequent potty breaks or is high-energy, we may not be a great choice for you. However, we're in a very walkable neighborhood just blocks from Hyde Park Square, and I'm happy to have doggy company on a couple of long walks each day.

We ask that you bring your dog's bed and crate with you to our house, and your dog will sleep in whichever he or she prefers. If your dog is used to sleeping in bed with you and would be stressed by anything else, we are probably not the best choice for your dog.

When Valerie watches your pet

WHERE WE TAKE OUR WALKS: We have a great walking neighborhood with parks and sidewalks and lots of other pedestrians and interesting things for dogs to investigate along the walk!

HOW MUCH TIME I'LL SPEND WITH YOUR DOG: I'm home all day! As a rule, your dog will not be left alone for more than a couple of hours, and many days he or she won't be left alone at all. If I can take the dog with me when I go out, I do.
