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.

Valerie was fantastic and looked after Crayon and Cobweb our cats very well. We booked Valerie at quite short notice and she was able to confirm the booking with us and make a home visit very promptly. She sent us photos every time she visited which was lovely, and made a special effort to feed our shy boy who was somewhat elusive at mealtimes! We would definitely recommend Valerie and would be happy to have her again.

I've never used a cat sitter before so was a bit nervous but Valerie was superb. I will differently ask her to sit for my cat again.
