About Valerie

I have grown up with dogs my whole life. I enjoy walking along the local beach and coastal path (500 metres from my house). I have had poodles, Labradors, Heinz 57's, Yorkshire terriers, and a Springer Spaniel.
I am a very outdoorsy person and am very rarely in. I no longer have a dog of my own as my own English Springer passed away at 17 years old a few months back. I miss him very much and this job enables me to constantly have dogs to walk. I am available 7 days a week.
I currently walk two Burmese mountain dogs and a couple of small llasapsos who are a delight to walk, we go up on the local Binn or around the local area, and coastal path. We are working on walking on the lead without pulling and playing fetch. I occasionally have them for day care as well.
I have a reasonably large garden, which is dog proof with a 6ft high fence right around it with no holes in it for small dogs to escape.
This has been the best job I have ever had, as it allows me to be outdoors, get the exercise I need and have the company of dogs. I have a 12 year old son who also adores dogs.
I am an ex-police woman and in my 50's so I am very responsible and mature. I love all dogs, but appreciate a visit first before walks commence, to discuss any medical conditions and dietary requirements.
I look forward to hearing from you.
