Over 20 years of loving, responsible pet sitting for your pets in Fallbrook and Bonsall area
Growing up on a ranch in Fallbrook with a wide variety of animals, I gained valuable knowledge of pet care, and as a life long animal caretaker have an understanding of animal welfare and a devotion towards pets and their needs.
I was involved in the 4-H and FFA (Future Farmers of America) programs, raised and showed livestock at the Youth Fair and Del Mar Fair as well as rode and cared for show horses.
I started doing pet sitting for friends parents while in high school to earn extra money for my horse project and tack. From the love of caring for many critters, I grew my pet sitting business into what it is today.
As far back as I can remember I have had a strong love for animals and passion for their proper care. I feel blessed to be working in the field of professional pet sitting. I am a sole proprietor, so I don't farm out my jobs to employees or independent contractors. It is very important to have that one on one personal relationship with my clients. In case of emergency or when I take a few days off, I have two colleagues here locally that will fill in for me. They too are professionals and are bonded and insured.
My pledge to you is to provide responsible, trustworthy pet sitting service and treat your pets and home like they are my own. You can leave home knowing your pets and home are in good hands, and travel with peace of mind. ~Valerie~
