About Phaedra

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Looking for a home away from home for your dog?

The Bed & Biscuit Inn at Vero Beach offers "in our home" care for your best friend while you are away from yours.

You will be entrusting your dog to an animal welfare professional who spent the past 11 years in the service of our local Humane Society. I have the experience and resources to handle the natural anxiety all animals feel when they are away from their owners and their home. I will make sure your dog is safe and as happy as he or she can be while you are apart.

Your dog will enjoy free access to my large home and fenced-yard, leash walks around our quiet dog-friendly neighborhood (if desired), playtime and lots of cuddles. I have a house full of fun toys, cozy beds and lots of love to go around.

My days and nights are completely devoted to the dogs in my care. I am with them 24/7.

In my house the dogs are allowed on the beds and furniture, if you have a "no pets on the furniture" rule at home I will maintain that rule for your pet during their stay with me.

Does your dog need things at odd times? No problem... tell me what your dog's schedule is and I will maintain that while they stay with me. I recognize the importance of routine in a dog's life and strive to maintain those comforts for each animal in my care.

I have two dogs of my own as you will see in my profile. My two Chihuahuas are both senior citizens and tolerate new dogs by simply going along and doing their own thing after a little sniffing and some "getting to know you" circles.

I do require a pre-boarding meet & greet for larger (10lbs+) dogs to be considered for day and/or overnight care to make sure they do not see my dogs or cats as prey. This is a natural and instinctual reaction for dogs and in some cases can be managed safely, though not always. I handle this on a case-by-case basis hence the need for the complimentary meet & greet.

I do accept small breed puppies for daycare and boarding. I am not able to accommodate large breed puppies under 10 months old. In my experience they are just not a good match for my home and other pets.

I had a great experience with Phaedra. My senior dachshund did great and she let him sleep in the bed with her, which was a big plus for me. It was very reassuring knowing he was well taken care of. Her text updates were very comforting as well. I highly recommend her!
Needed a last minute pet sitter for my two puppies and started my search on your website. All searches led me to Phaedra and thank goodness! Her services were exactly what I was looking for and more!! After the meet and greet, I was so pleased and knew I had found them a great home away from home. Will definitely contact her again!!!
This was my first time using a non-kennel pet sitter, and I knew from the first time Kramer and I met Phaedra during our meet n greet, that Kramer was going to have a blast! Her home is spotless and serene, with a soft shaggy rug inside, and a big shady fenced yard. Kramer had just started a new medicine regimen so he was being fussy with his food and taking his meds. I felt so horrible passing him off to Phaedra with this issue, but she soothingly reassured me that she had some tricks up her sleeve to get Kramer to take his medicine - and she was right! She texted me every day to give me an update. He didn't miss one dose, and ate heartily as she even cooked some of her own chicken to entice him to eat. Plus he had fun socializing with the other pups, enjoyed her homemade treats, and even snuggled in bed with her at night. He enjoyed himself so much, I am going to continue to take him to Phaedra's for daycare every few weeks. Thank you so much Phaedra - from the bottom of our hearts!
It was amazing, my dog loved her and he felt right at home we will be doing this again. She also made homemade organic treats for my dog puppers and he loves them.
We had one of our dogs experience extreme stress from being at a kennel and daycare - so we needed needed to find a new place for our dogs when we were gone. We found that Phaedra was the place -- she threaded our dogs as her own and our dog did not appear to have any related stress issues. I would recommend Phaedra to anybody -- she and her husband were great.
Charley, my Scottish Terrier, and I went for a Meet and Greet with Phaedra about a week before the overnight. Charley checked out everything, found the water bowl, the toy box and seemed very comfortable in the house. I like to start with a short stay and so the next week Charley stayed one night. When we drove up to the house, he remembered and was very anxious to get out of the car and into the house with Phaedra, Bruce and the dogs. Even though the stay was short, Phaedra
kept in touch with a text message. This was a very positive experience for both Charley and myself. As I am a traveler, I expect that Charley will find a home away from home with Phaedra from time to time.
This was a perfect place for our cockatoo and Phaedra is the best we have found for knowing what exceptional pet care is. We will be back.
Phaedra K was awesome. We received daily photo's of our Jack. She really put me at ease with being away and knowing that he was in a place like his home. No cages, he was bathed and cuddled every night. Would highly recommend her.
Very friendly from the start, beautiful home, love that she watches small dogs, has a passion for what she does. Met a great person and now a lifelong friend. Love love love the doggy bag and the letter that she created!
Very highly recommended and we will be back! ??
We are always a bit nervous about boarding our precious pup, but we were greatly reassured when we took him to the initial meet-and-greet with Phaedra. He got along just fine with her, her own dogs and some boarders, so we had no qualms about leaving him a few days later for a 5-night/6 day stay.

When we arrived to pick him up he was his usual perky self, though he did seem a bit reluctant to leave his new-found "family" and friends behind; he obviously had a good time and was well taken care of.

We are happy to recommend Phaedra and we plan to book with her the next time we need her services.
We were concerned about leaving our 4 month old puppy Gracie for the first time but Phaedra did a great job. We signed Gracie up for a "practice" day care to see how she would do and if Phaedra thought she would adapt to the new surroundings. Fortunately the day went well and we brought Gracie back for her 6 day stay. Phaedra was wonderful! She sent pictures and updates to us while we were gone. She gave Gracie a lot of attention and personal care. When we returned Phaedra sent us home with a gift bag and a detailed letter about everything Gracie did while she was with her. I highly recommend Phaedra and I know we will send Gracie to her again!
What a wonderful place we found! Phaedra was so warm and friendly, my dog Yoda seemed to really love it. She texted me daily with pix and updates on his stay. I was able to relax knowing he was in good hands. Would recommend heartily and I will be using this again . Thank you also , Phaedra for the homemade doggie treats, he loves them
Phaedre is every dog owner's dream -- a caring, loving person who knows how to handle her canine companions. She is unflappable and kind. I would not hesitate to entrust my sweet dog to her care.
Gypsy Rose, my little admittedly spoiled, dog means the world to me. The absolute best thing I can say about booking a "DogVacay" with Phaedra is you will not have to worry about your family member one bit. She will be having the time of her life at Phaedra's dog friendly, safe and delightful home.

Phaedra is a true professional and an asset to Dog owners in Vero Beach, Florida. Use her services and both you and your canine family member will have a memorable and worry free vacation.
What a wonderful experience we had with Phaedra! Our Schipperke is 14 years old, but had the best 4 days walking, playing and snoozing with his new buddies. Phaedra's home is spotless and her yard is fenced. She sent notes and pics to keep us posted. She actually made me feel like I was a good friend and can ask for her help when needed!
We thank her so much and look forward to return visits.
I was very nervous about finding a place to leave my new puppy, Bear, while we went away. I had visited a local boarding facility but it was very busy. What a relief to have found Phaedra! Bear immediately felt at home with Maggie and the other dogs.I highly recommend this host!
Phaedra is fabulous! Pip had a wonderful time and seemed rather sad to leave his new friends behind when we showed up to bring him home. She has a large, secure back yard, which the dogs love exploring, and she also walked him daily. I am very pleased and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her. I plan on having Pip stay with her again soon.
Harmony, our 10 yr old terrier, spent 8 days with Phaedra after first having a meet and greet and a one day play day. The play day was recommended by Phaedra and seemed to give her the familiarity she needed to make the drop off for the 8 day trip less stressful for us both. Phaedra was very flexible in our drop off and pick up times. She shared updates with photos and was all organized for our pick up. Plus gave us a report card on Harmony's vacay. We will use Phaedra again on our next trip.
Casey had a great time staying with Phaedra and some of the other pups. She came home with a bag of goodies and a big smile. We can highly recommend Phaedra. We've already scheduled Casey's next visit!
Phaedra took wonderful care of Peggy. Such a great experience! Peggy is a shy dog, quiet dog who prefers a gentle and calm environment. Phaedra catered to Peggy's needs and gave her lots of love and reassurance. I appreciate the real time updates and care package at the end. Peggy loved those home made treats! I loved the letter from Peggy as well. Next time I will happily go back, and I recommend her to you as well.
Phaedra was awesome. Our dog loved her dogs and she was so accommodating. Toby loved being at her house. Great fenced yard, nice house and very friendly. We would definitely use her again if we are in this area. Great place!
Phaedra was perfect in every way. Our dog Buudy had a wonderful time and we were able to enjoy ourselves knowing that Buddy was in good hands.
He loved playing with her other dogs and Phaedra sent me pictures everyday. I would go back to her any time and will call the next time we take a side trip !
THANK YOU Phaedra !!
I was very anxious because we had not left our precious Sophie with anyone before and I couldn't accept cage boarding. After the Meet and Greet, I was relieved and assured that Sophie would receive the best care available as Phaedra proved herself to be a kind, considerate animal lover. The accommodations couldn't have been better. Sophie thrived and it turned out to be as much vacation for her as it was for us. I can't tell you how happy I was to find Phaedra. She has earned my unconditional seal of approval and my highest recommendation.
We've been in a several year search to find accommodations fit our King Charles Spaniel Dook. We are beyond particular when it comes to Dook and are reluctant to have even friends and family walk and care for him ( in fact we don't). We happening upon Phaedra through Dogvacay. What a find for us and Dook. We now have a professional caretaker for out dog. She has the perfect environment and knows much more about my dogs need than I even though she's just met him. I can say with confidence you can stop searching once you have met Phaedra.

Phaedra is amazing! So patient and knowledgeable. Indiana Jones had such a nice time with her, he felt right at home! I will be calling on her to take care of my fur pup if we ever need to leave him behind again. Makes me sad (very) when I have to leave him, but to know he's well taken care of is a comfort! Thank you!!!
Phaedra's bed and biscuit is wonderful! We feel really lucky that our dogs have a fabulous home away from home. Highest recommendation.
