Hi! My name is Valerie. My love for dogs started at a very young age. I spent my childhood growing up with a Boxer, Dachshund and Schnauzer. During my teen years we welcomed a Yellow Lab and a rescued black Kittie to our home. Throughout my College years, I ended up taking care of my roommate s furry angels, Poseidon a Great Dane. Calie a Weimaraner and Rasta a Yorkie. Yes, this included potty training them, teaching them basic commands and a few tricks along the way. My love and dedication for furry angels, especially dogs, led me to pursue a Diploma as Animal Care Technician. Shortly after completing my diploma, I landed a job working with special needs children and adults and their canine companions. I have also worked as an animal care specialist at a doggie daycare and boarding facility where I handled dogs of all sizes, ages, needs, and temperaments.I m currently in my third year pursuing a BA in Exercise Science. I look forward to loving your furry angels as if they were my own.
