About Valerie

I have had a dog of my own since I was a small child I'm now 50 years old. I have both worked and trained collies the dogs I love most are Border Terriers but love all dogs any shape or size.

I was brought up in the country my dad being a hill shepherd and was taught from a young age to love and respect all animals. My love of dogs came from my dad and I'm lucky to have had dogs by my side all my life.

My home will be your dogs home from home I have a three bedroomed house the dogs are allowed in all of the house and are welcome to sit on the furniture unless you tell me otherwise.

My garden is of medium sized but your dogs will get regular walks, my own two dogs get at least 3hrs walks per day, but I will walk your dogs as per your instructions.

I live on a farm so lots of smells and animals around for the dogs to meet.

I walk in the surrounding area both in the hills and on the coast. We have Wooler common to walk on and many parts of St Cuthberts way. I only live 20mins from the beach so often walk there too.

    We found Valerie on dog buddy after being let down by our local go to kennel. Valerie was able to accommodate our little pooch at last minute and I’m so glad that we did. We recieved photos of her trips out to the beach which was very reassuring and she was able to socialise with other dogs. Valerie is also a lovely lady and takes good care and paid the ultimate attention to all our needs. We will definitely use Valerie again on our next trip away! Many thanks Valerie! :-)
