HOUSE AND PET SITTING
I can customize your service around your specific needs. I am available for overnight, day services, drop in checks/feedings, vacations, work trips, etc. Your home or mine. I have a large, fully fenced grassy yard. We are a quiet, laid back household. I run a small service based business offering pet care and house keeping to yard services. I work from home so your pet is always supervised. We have an entire crew just waiting to care for your pet. My daughter, 24, lives at home and is around if I'm not. She helps me love on all our doggy guests. I also have an employee that is available as a back up in case I need to be away for any reason.

House Sitting Pet Sitting Cleaning Organizing Yard Work Chores
$20 Daycare - 9am to 5pm
$20 Overnight - 5pm to 9am
Away Stays - $50 per 24 hour shift mileage
Pick up or drop off - $1.00 a mile
Rates may vary based on number of pets and the amount of care each pet requires. When I house sit, I leave your home better than I found it. For an additional charge I can also provide a thorough cleaning to your home while you are away. Come back to a nice clean home and a happy pet. The more I know about your pet the better quality of service I can provide. I like to know your pets routine. There is comfort in routine for your pet while you are gone. I also continue your training routines if any. I believe in positive reinforcement.
Notes from some of my happy clients:
Val Smith has been working for us since 2005. She cleans our home, dog sits for us while we're on trips, does maintenance at our home and at our rental home. We feel so blessed to have her and her team work for us. She is very honest, reliable, gets the job done fast and thoroughly. I hope she'll continue to work for us for a very long time!!!

Val was easy to contact and coordinate with. She took good care of the dogs and neither was in any way upset after the visit. I highly recommend Val's service!
Our dog enjoyed her stay with Val, she was in good hands.
Val stayed at our house for a week, taking care of our two Portuguese Water Dogs. Val was very professional before our trip. She came to our house twice to make sure, once for an interview and once near the time of the trip to get final instructions. She struck us right away as a very conscientious person. Val stayed in contact with us throughout our trip, and we came home to two happy and healthy dogs, and a freshly cleaned house. We will certainly have Val come to stay with our dogs again in the future.
Wow! I don't even know where to start. This was a wonderful experience. We got emails and updates on our furry kids. The house looked awesome when we got home. No muss, no fuss, and no worries about the kids in a kennel. Thanks for making this a worry free vacation.
Val was supportive through the website responses -She was prompt to answer questions and she even made accommodations the week of our trip! During our in home visit I could tell that Val genuinely enjoys animals and also is involved in activities and hobbies that make her a well rounded person with an energetic personality. Our Sophie did well even though it was her first time overnight with someone else - she is five years old! I'm very grateful for the time away and the confidence this service and Val has given me to take this step for dog care.
Val was wonderful with my little baby shih tzu, Le Le. She treated him like he was her own and sent me updates with photos because she knew I missed him. Thanks so much, VAL.

Valerie Smith is a wonderful pet sitter. We considered ourselves very lucky to have found her. Both our home and our pets were in great shape every time she sat for us. We have moved out of the area and will miss having her available for when we travel. I recommend her highly.
Valerie Smith takes care of my sweet little shih tzu, Le Le, when I go out of town. He is like a member of my family, so I don't trust just anyone with his care. Valerie is a loving and compassionate caregiver to Le Le and treats him just like she would her own well-loved pet. He looks forward to going to her house and she always keeps me informed on how he is doing through texts and photos. I highly recommend Valerie.
Valerie is a great pet sitter, I wish she lived closer as we drive about 20 minutes each way to use her services because she is up to the challenge of our two rescue pups with calm and ease. She is the only person we could find in the area that takes dogs and doesn't already have dogs of her own. One of our dogs only gets along with certain other dogs and also doesn't care for new visitors. Valerie has done an exceptional job having availability and not making us feel like our dogs are any extra work even if they are counter surfers and garbage divers.
