Valerie and her husband, Tom, enjoy teaching puppies to master basic commands and helping them become responsible members of your family. They have three children who are in middle school and high school who also participate in the training process. When not training puppies, Valerie is involved in her local homeschool cooperative and manages a small Etsy business. Tom works from home and enjoys disc golf and spending time in his garden. In their spare time, they love going to the beach and visiting extended family.
