About Valerie

Hello, I'm Val, I live in Canterbury, my location is close for a variety of dog walks, with woolands, fields and parks. I work part time as a catering assistant 3 days a week and I volunteer for the rspca at the rehoming centre for cats. I have grown up with dogs from an early age and have had guinea pigs as well. As an adult I have had a lovely Irish setter, Springer Spanial and a Jack Russell Terrier who sadly passed away last summer. I enjoy the company of animals and have some spare time on my hands to help out with your pets needs and care while your away.

I am able to offer a pop in service to your home for your pets, day care, over night stays in your home and dog walking. I will only walk one dog at a time unless 2 dogs come from the same family. I will only look after small dogs and depending on the breed and temperment some medium breeds.

The pop in service is tailored to your pets requirements, a visit is 30-40 minutes, once or twice a day, including feeding and fresh water cleaning litter tray for cats, socialising, a walk for 30 minutes for your dog. Watering plants, switching lights on and off collecting post.

Over night stay in your home based on your requirements for your pets.

Dog walking, 30 or 60 minute walk one dog only two from the same family.

I can offer Doggy Day Care at the Weekend and on Mondays and may be able to arrange a friday too.

I can groom your dogs if you can provide the grooming equipment, however I will not cut your dogs hair, if it is mattered I will try to brush it out the best I can.

Currently I don't have my own transport so I'm a bit limited to the areas I can cover, it's easier for me to stay within Canterbury. However if I get there easily enough on public transport I will carefully consider it.

We were so happy to find Valerie! She is kind, reliable and sensible. Unfortunately our Lulu wasn't well the very first night of first sleep over but Valerie was calm and caring of Lulu. Luckily it wasn't anything too serious and something that had been lurking, but unfortunate timing that it surfaced while we were away.

We have every confidence in Valerie and would not have any hesitation in booking her again, if she would like to look after Lulu and Fred again of course!

Thank you Valerie, and thank you Pawshake for introduction.

Valerie was very helpful and keen to ensure that Jasper was happy whilst in her care. She visited to meet him and us and she and Jasper related well from the very beginning. She visited twice as arranged and gave us a full report with photos. we would definitely call upon Valerie in the future when the need arises.
