I have been completely amazed with Valerie's ability to connect with any dogs that she comes in contact with. She has some 'Jedi mind' thing going on with them, which allows her to provide the upmost, caring, and loving interaction I've ever witnessed. She is definitely the one that I prefer and trust with my dogs, as well as the one that I refer to all of my friends and family! You will be grateful ...

Vet in training

I've always been a sucker for dogs, especially the larger breeds. I currently own a Pit Bull and a Husky and have walked everything in between from Dalmatians to Miniature Pincers. While walks should be fun, I also believe in creating structure to ensure maximum mental exhaustion-because a tired pup is a happy pup!

What Valerie would like to know about your dog

Tell me about your dog! What do they like, what do they not like? Are they scared of cars? Are they prey-driven? Do they not like other dogs? Do they love a certain type of treat? Are they high energy? The more information I have, the better equipped I can be to tailor a walk/ play time to them.
While I love all breeds, my true weakness is the Pit Bull type breeds. I have been involved in rescue groups focusing on the breed for 9 years now and have owned 3 of them myself.

When Valerie watches your pet

Ideally a trail or a park will be on my walking route, depending on your house location and the dogs' temperament. If you have a dog that is easily frightened then I will avoid any main street with a lot of cars passing by. Also, if you have a leash reactive dog I will start with more secluded routes until I learn their temperament and ticks.
