About Deborah

11 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
PLEASE READ DESCRIPTION ALL THE WAY THROUGH! Thanks!

Hi! I'm Deborah. I'm a host here at DogVacay and........ I LOVE dogs!

Now my/our goal for your precious pooch while you are away is to provide a safe, warm, and comfortable environment. The last thing you need to do is worry that your pet is not safe or happy.

We will treat your dog like one of the family, like a grandparent or cousin visiting or like best friends spending the night (sometimes it's like that) Sometimes it is like going away to camp, staying with friends, sleeping in bunks (not literally) No private rooms with spas. Just dogs, fun and playing.

We live in a small, but cute little house. However, we have a big interesting yard. Our yard has many different areas to explore and play. We also have a pool that is gated off when necessary. Shady fruit trees and a garden. Lots of spaces.

Our front door is also gated, Keeping pets extra safe and secure.

Our Dogs;

LOUIE is an American Bull Dog/ Dalmatian mix. ( Bullmatian) She is three years old. She is humble, sweet, playful, lazy, lovable and patient. She kind of goes with the flow. She also knows she is the alpha dog, so she keeps order. She makes sure no one gets hurt and that they stay safe. She is a very responsible dog.

TOBIE is a Standfordshire Bull Terrier runt. We recently adopted her from the shelter. She is under a year old. She is very very smart. Quick learner. Playful, lovable, and fast. She is very small and has had a few surgeries. So she is not a ruff and tuff type. She is our little lap dog.

NOTE: Although Louie's and Tobie's breed may fit in the pitbull category, I can promise you, they do not act aggressive at all. If you feel unsure about this, then a meet and greet is the best way to show you. I have a great amount of returning guests both with big dogs and little dogs. They are like family! And no one ever gets hurt.

A meet and greet is a way for us to see if our dogs get along. To see if you feel comfortable and for me to also decide if your dog will be a good fit for our dogs and our other guest's dogs. I have to make sure EVERY dog is safe.

Meet and Greets are optional, However, if your dog is not fixed, then it is required. If you have a semi aggressive dog, then it will be required as well.

We love going on walks and to the dog park. We take the whole gang of dogs when we go. Quite interesting at times. If you prefer us not to walk your dog or go to the dog park, that is fine too. We are flexible.

We have TWO older cats who tolerate our dog party. Your dog will never see them and if so it is from a far. So if your dog does not like cats.....it's okay.

I have a computer science degree and have worked the past ten years with special needs children in the public school system. ( No longer)

I found the constant educational red tape and demands became a bit much, so I decided to start watching dogs three years ago and I love it! ______________________________

REMINDER:

We are opening our private home to watch your pet. Please respect our property.

Please be prompt when dropping off and picking up your pet. Just let us know if you are late, it is never a problem.

THINGS TO BRING:

Pick up and drop off times within the hour. (If Possible)

Leash/Harness( Yes Please)

Food for your pet's stay. (Required)

Medicine or supplements

Blanket, mattress, or pillow. ( I have extras)

If your dog is crate trained. You will need to provide a crate. The crate provides some dogs with a sense of security. Also it is a place for your pet to rest when they become stressed or are unable to relax. ( I do have three crates available for convenience) (Medium, Large and XLarge)

I do offer a multi dog discount. You must inquire about this prior to booking or before I except your reservation. If you are a returning guest, I got you covered.

______________________________

PICTURES

I will send you updates daily, unless you've been here a bunch of times. Then I just post on Instagram and Facebook. @ ALL 4 THE DOGZ

I was featured on ABCNews 10 this year. I have all my guests to thank! They all have great dogs and I love watching them.

Okay, hopefully you have read this whole thing.

Ready to Book? I hope to see you soon!

Professional and friendly. Drax loved his stay and had a blast. Loved the pictures Deborah sent us while drax was with her. Will book again with her. Thanks Deborah.
I looked at several sitters on Dogvacay triing to find aome one who could handle my very active dog. Did an initial meet nd greet with Deborah and her dogs. Everyone did great. He had a great time with the other dogs in house. Got him home and he colapsed from exhaustion. She also sent picture while he was with her. Highly recommend her as a sitter. The drive from Natomas to Rancho is well worth knowing my dog is in good hands.

Thanks Deborah.

We found Deborah on DogVacay and decided to use her dog sitting services over the Thanksgiving holiday. It was very clear why she has earned so many 5 star ratings! Lucy, our loving basset hound, was well taken care of and we would not hesitate in using her again! Deborah is very kind and sweet and definitely loves the dogs she takes care of - thank you!!

I can't even count how many times i've already returned to Deborah! We have two Pitbulls that are spoiled and they love playing with Deborah's dogs. They always return home happy ans safe. So glad we found Deborah!
Deborah was very easy to work with. She seemed to really care about our dog.
Another successful vacay! This was my shy shih tzu's fourth stay with Deborah.I am a happy repeat customer
Deborah was patient with us when we first met and educated us on dog behavior when we were uncertain of how to react to our dog's change in behavior. While on our trip she texted photos and updates to put our mind at ease. It was a good experience.
Maggie seemed very tired and happy when we picked her up!! She had a great time will use again!
Benny stayed with Deborah for two weeks and was happy and safe when I returned. I was nervous to leave him because he has some medical issues but Deborah was very knowledgable and accommodating to his special needs. It was comforting to leave him in a family environment where I knew that he wouldn't be sitting in a cage during the time I was gone. She sent me pictures and updates of Benny participating in his daily activities as well. I would definitely use her again!

I was so happy with Deborah's care of Tidy. Her home is completely dog-friendly, and it is obvious she cares greatly for her charges. Tidy had plenty of company and attention and came home ready to rest! I will happily ask Deborah to watch her again when the time come.

Deborah was great!!
We had a great experience with Deborah! Our dog, Jack, stayed with her for a week and enjoyed his stay - playing with her dogs, going to dogparks and on walks, and being with her family. Jack can be quirky with people he doesn't know and it was such a relief to get her texts and know that he was doing well without us. We are happy to have found someone nearby to trust with him when we go away. Thanks Deborah!

Fine
Our little dog is over 18 years old, gets around slowly and has trouble with vision and hearing. But he had such a great time with Deborah! I could tell that she had experience with senior dogs because she understood that he doesn't come when called and wanders around hugging walls and fences. She was attentive and flexible with his idiosyncrasies. When we got home, he got right back into his routine, which has not happened when we've boarded him at kennels. Deborah is certainly our choice for future boarding needs.

My dog Icee had a wonderful time with her new friends at All 4 the Dogz. I know she'd love to come again for a visit!
We are repeat guests because Roscoe has a great time over at Deborah's.
We have had Greta one year as a rescue dog , and have never left her alone. I was concerned how she would be without us and with other dogs.

Deborah was completely understanding and I could tell she really knows dogs. I felt comfortable leaving Greta after our first meet and greet.

Greta's overnighter went well and we plan on her staying with Deborah and her family again when we have to go on a people trip.

Thank you, Deborah for taking good care of our baby

BJ loves spending days at Deborah's. I could tell right away that she is a dog lover and she welcomed BJ into her home as if he were her own. She's very accommodating and I like the atmosphere.
My pooch came home tired and happy. I think he didn't want to leave his new dog friends behind.
Charlie had so much fun playing with Deborah and all of the dogs staying there. He will be back to do it all again soon!
Great job and Kahlua enjoyed the stay and great pictures. Hope you enjoyed Kahlua as much:-)
My dog was very well taken care of. I think she may have liked it at Deborah's better than home. She had a playmate and got to run around. She was very happy. I loved my nightly updates. I will use Deborah when Maddie needs another Dog Vacay!
Deborah was able to take my dog last minute before Christmas. My pup was happy and made lots of new friends. Thanks!
Deborah was fantastic. So accommodating and nice and our two little dogs had a fantastic time!!!
Deborah was great and Louie was really welcoming to our Xena. I recommend her and dogvacay!
It was my first time using DogVacay. I just moved to this area and before I used to have a friend who could watch my dog during my travels. I am so glad I came across Deborah! She is great with dogs ( and with people too- great customer service). My dog now sure have a safe and fun place to go when we are out of town. I have already booked his next stay. Not sure? Just schedule a meeting with her! It won't take you long to understand why I am so happy with her services! She has a great yard too!

Our Burton is a busy husky and when I picked him up from Deborah's he was tired and pleasantly calm after playing and running around with her dog and others. Great place for a dog to stay and nice lady to deal with!
Deborah was great! She responded to all my communications and sent me a picture to ease my mind. I was grateful that my dogs were in a real home with people and all through the night. I would definitely recommend her and hope to use her services again.

We always love leaving Brutus at Deborah U's place. She is great and we can leave town knowing that Brutus is in the hands of great care! We always use Deborah.
Holley LOVES staying with Deb and her family! We hate to ever leave Holley, but when we have to go out of town we feel so much better knowing that she is safe and happy with what has become her second family! Thank you!!!
Once again, Misty had a ball playing with Louie! Thanks Deb for taking her on less than a days notice! Misty just loves it there and always comes home smiling (and tired!)
Julie loves Deborah and is always so excited to visit her and her wonderful pets. Thanks so much, Deborah, for taking such good care of her.
As usual, Misty was a happy, tired pup when we picked up after her stay with Deb (and Louie, Misty's new best friend!) When we drop her off new, she runs up to the gate, leaping with joy at being there, runs in and starts playing, never looking back now!
Makes us feel good leaving her with Deb as she is obviously having a great time there!

Wonderful experience. Julie slept so well every night after spending the day with Deborah and all her new friends! By the third day she was on her feet and ready to jump out of the car several blocks before we got to Deborah's home. One happy dog! Thanks, Deborah.

Lulu had a great stay - Deborah had two other black labs and her dog there. Her home is very dog friendly and she had a large yard. Lulu usually doesn't swim unless another person or dog is in the pool, but, jumped in by herself and took a turn around the pool. Deborah also treated her to a long walk when the other labs went home. I would definitely leave Lulu there again.

Our dogs were truly treated as family! Not only did we have a vacation so did our dogs!!!
Great place to leave your pet, we use her all the time!
Our big dog is always very well taken care of by Deborah and her family and of course Louie !
Deborah was wonderful. We met her and Louie for a meet and greet the day before Zeus was going to stay with them. They have a huge backyard and an enclosed front yard. She sent us pictures later that evening so I could see that Zeus was having a great time. Thank you for taking care of our little puppy girl! She slept well that night! :)

Deb and her family are great. We were worried about both dogs b/c one, who's 12, had two furry loses last year and our newest furry family member is a rescue. Deb sent pictures and updates while we were in Hawaii. The dogs were happy, almost indifferent when we came home. Happy family here. Highly recommend!!!!

Misty went on a Day Care visit to Deborah's since we were going to a SF Giants game and didn't want to leave her home alone all day. She became increasingly excited the closer we got, and practically dragged me up to the door! She loves playing with Louie and was indeed a tired pup when we picked her up that evening! Thanks Deborah! See you next month!

Deborah took wonderful care of our Aussie boy Dane!! She has a wonderful yard with a pool and lots of great space to explore and play. Her dog Louie was very sweet and welcoming and they have a doggie door so the dogs are able to go in and out whenever they wish. She even let Dane sleep up on the bed with her and lounge on their recliner chair!

This was our first time using DogVacay and we were so happy! Deborah was wonderful with Misty, our Border Collie/Golden Retriever mix! We were sent pictures and reports about Misty daily...she had so much fun playing with Louie, Deborahs dog. And loved swimming too! Although she was happy to see us, I'm sure she will miss Louie and Deb ;-)
We will definitely be back!

We're 'repeaters' with Deborah - and Katy is always very comfortable there! We like using Deb because e know our pup will get loving care. And we'll use her again!! Katy says 'Bow - Woof' too!
Once again, Gotti returned home after receiving tons of loving and exercise ! Thank you Deborah !
Katy was glad to see Deb and some new 'friends'. She evidently is comfortable here--especially with Emily! we feel great about leaving her in Deb's care--
Great place to leave your dog. They send you pictures while he is there, so you know he is great hands. Highly recommended.
Deborah was great - we did a 'meet & know' session last month, and then left Katy for 5 days with Deborah over last weekend.. When we came to get her, our 'baby' was happy to see us, but also was happy with her 'home away from home'. Great job! And we WILL use Deborah again!!

We had never taken a vacation because we didn't think anyone would care for our dogs like us. Well, I was wrong. After meeting with Deborah we felt more than confident that our dogs would be treated like one of the family. We got updates and pictures all of which kept my stress level down so I could get through our Daughters wedding. Thank you so much Deborah. Most definitely will be using her services again. This has opened up so many more opportunities for me and my husband.

Deborah sent several photos of Gotti while we were away in June 2014. He had a GREAT time with Louie, his new "girlfriend" ! He slept for 2 full days after we brought him home-he had so much fun at Deborah's. We'll be back... ! Thanks Deborah for hosting Gotti.

Great to deal with. She was always sending up pictures and updates on our dog. Will use her again.
Our dog Brutus had a great time with Deborah U. We would recommend this family to any one and leave Brutus with them again. She kept me updated through our trip away and sent me pictures of our dog. Great to know your dog is in great care!
I'm so thankful that my boy Mocha got to stay with Deb. She and her husband took good care of Mocha and kept me posted constantly via email. They also have a pup which I'm glad that Mocha got to play with. Thanks so much Deb!
Deborah and her family were such a wonderful host for two dogs. They have a dog around the same age as ours and they did nothing but play. The grounds are perfect for dogs, and the family treats the dogs very well. They also are very accommodating to your dog's if they have any food sensitivity. This was my first experience with dogvacay and I couldn't have been happier with it. I would definitely have my dogs stay here again.
