Debbie was great. Ozzy had a great time. She sent pictures and videos every day. Wonderful experience!
Debbie was great. We picked her because she is reasonably priced and convenient. We would pick her again because she was good to our baby. He was stress free when we picked him up. We will definitely use her again.
Super friendly dogs and people! Felt very comfortable leaving my puppy there. She seemed to have a great time and was well taken care of. If I am in the area will definitely stay again.
Was a positive experience, Debbi was very accommodating and worked with us to make sure our dogs would be comfortable and cared for. The location was in a nice neighborhood. Our dogs appreciated the walks and play time, every day. We will recommend Debbi to others. We will recommend Debbi to others.
Debbie was awesome. She took great care of jazzy, was really flexible, and sent us several pics over the 4 days. It was my first time using this site and I was pleasantly surprised by how perfectly everything went. Thank you!
Debbie and her family did great! I loved getting daily (and sometimes more than one) photos from her. Finley is high energy and still he came home happy and tired.
It was such a tricky week for our scheduling that week, Debbie worked with us to reduce our stress for sure!
Boomer not only looks great when we pick him up, he is so excited to get to Debbie's!
Debbie did a fantastic job watching Luna. We will definitely use her again!!!
Excellent service! Have used Debbie twice now and both experiences were great. Communication was always fast and she is easy to work with. Will definitely use her again!
Dixie always comes home happy after a stay with Debbie and her family. This was her third stay. She did hurt herself while there and my guess she was having so much fun playing with the other dogs she over exerted a little bit because by the time we got her the next day after her little injury she was fine. I received several emails from the Dogvacay company checking on her to be sure she was okay. I have so much confidence in Debbie and Dogvacay and how they take care of her, that Dixie will be going back in November for another stay. We are so happy that we found Debbie. It is worth the drive from Shalimar to Debbie's. We are able to enjoy our vacations knowing that we don't have to worry about our furbaby while we are gone and we love the picture updates.
Miss Debbie is the best! She is always so accommodating to pick up and drop off times that fit our schedule. I always get a picture each day too! Our doggy takes an allergy med daily and Miss debbie has no problems giving medication. She truly is an animal lover that I trust!
Our dog, Chelsea, a lab retriever, seemed to enjoy her stay. It gave us great peace of mind to know she was well cared for while we were gone.
Debbie did a great job with our pup! Will definitely use her service again in the future.
We constantly got updates on how our dogs were and received lots of pictures of them playing in the back yard!
Our dog Mack truly had a DogVacay while we were stayed at the beach for a week. Debbie is an awesome host and made the process super easy. We had the expectation of Mack being super happy to go home with us at the conclusion of our trip however we could tell that he missed all the fur friends he made while he was there as well as Debbie.
We would love to have Mack visit again for a vacay knowing that he'll have a great time.

I've already told friends how pleasant our DogVacay experience was.
Debbie was great about sending picture updates everyday, I know Gemma had a great time playing with the kids and other dogs!! I would definitely use Debbie again :)
Very friendly and a very good experience
Debbie and her son took amazing care of my fur baby, Lincoln. She responded back quickly with answers to my questions and was able to set up a meet and greet that worked with my schedule. Lincoln loved playing with their dog, Sunni. Im sure he felt like he was on a long, fun play date! I loved receiving daily pictures and updates. When I picked him up I could tell he was well taken care of. I'll definitely be contacting Debbie in the future when I need to go out of town! No hesitancy leaving him in her care at all!
Our 7 week old Yorkie went with us to Navarre for vacation. We had seen pets there in the past, so didn't realize no pets were allowed in condo unless a unit owner. I was heartsick when told we had to board her for the week. I found DogVacay and was truly blessed to receive an acceptance (very quickly) from Debbie. She and her son came and picked Ruby up, asked lots of questions to help her feel safe and at home. Her reviews were wonderful, and many wrote of rebooking with her again. I will too. She took Ruby in as one of her own, sent updates and pictures, and even helped with transitioning once we were back home. Ruby enjoyed her time with Sunni, who belongs to Debbie. What was originally a terrifying situation became a blessing in disguise! We found a treasure-and will definitely come back and call on her again! ❤️
Debbie and her family were very flexible with our schedule and easy to work with...such a loving Dog Vacay family taking care of our pup ;)
I never had opportunity to meet Debbie. I did meet her son who was very welcoming to Gracie. I tried to call Debbie to pick Gracie up the night before expected date of arrival and was unable to get her by phone. We did go to the house and get Gracie early. Debbie was very customer service oriented and helped me get a refund when the dates were notated incorrectly. Gracie said she had a fun time and would like to visit Debbie again in the future. I would like to have heard from Debbie personally as to how the short visit went. Please list us as "satisfied customer".
This is the third time that our two dogs have visited Debbie. After a bad experience at a kennel we found Debbie and the dogs have always seemed to enjoy staying with her. I highly recommend Debbie for her services.
Dixie stayed with Debbie and her family for a week in April. This was a second stay with them. We know she had a great time and was well taken care of. Loved getting update photos. Look forward to our next trip as we won't have to worry about leaving Dixie.
Booked her for the weekend of my wedding!! She is booked again 2 weeks later for my honeymoon. Great with sending pictures while you're away!!
Caring. Loving. Trusting. Dependable. Want to have your best friend treated like family? Then Call Debbie when you need her help. There is none better.
Debbie dos a fantastic job with Cletus. I received daily pics of him running and playing. I made a short notice reservation and she got back to me right away. I would definitely bring him to Debbie and her family again! Thanks!
My boyfriend and I were worried about having to board our dogs for a few days while we were out of town. Our pups are like our kids, so the thought of them being in a cage somewhere all weekend with minimal attention sounded terrible to us. I started googling dog sitters in the area and came across this site and Debbie. We set up a meeting before we left town with Debbie and our dogs, and all of our fears about leaving the dogs for the weekend disappeared. Debbie is super sweet and incredibly professional and knowledgable about dogs. We got daily pictures sent to use, which made being gone much easier. Seeing our dogs playing and looking happy was wonderful. We would highly recommend Debbie to anyone who is not interested in kenneling their dogs and wants their dogs to be treated like family while they are gone. Overall, it was a wonderful experience, and we know that if we have to go out of town again in the future, we can rely on Debbie to take amazing care of our pups. Thank you for the wonderful experience, Debbie! :)
This was our first experience with DogVacay and we are very happy with the service provided by Debbie and her kids. We were able to arrange a Meet-n-greet within a few minutes of messaging her. At first we were concerned because our dog is very active and requires constant attention, but after meeting Debbie and Sunni she assured us that everything was going to be good and that she would be able to take care of him. Also, her kids were very excited to meet Marlow which made us feel good knowing that they were going to keep him busy. Debbie provided updates and a picture of our dog during his overnight stay as well as prompt response to all of my questions. We would definitely recommend Debbie to anyone looking for someone to take care of their dogs while away from home. Marlow will be staying with Debbie again for our week long vacation.
We appreciate that Debbie welcomed our 2 extra large fur babies into her home for an overnight stay. They seemed like they had a great time!
Highly recommend!! Debbie and her family (to include little Sunni) were a wonderful treat for my boy. Paulie and I were instantly comfortable on our first meet and greet and I never worried about him once on my vacation. Debbie sent adorable pictures throughout and took great care of my special needs dog. I will absolutely be using her again in the future. Thank you Debbie!!
Our first experience with Dog Vacay and Debbie couldn't have been any better! Debbie and her kids love dogs and it shows. Our dog Buttercup had a great time playing with the other dogs and cuddling with Debbie and her family. I loved the daily pictures she sent me and how promptly she returned my messages. We will definitely go back to Debbie whenever we need someone to watch Buttercup!
This is Debbie's second time watching our fur baby. It was easy to make the reservation and Debbie sent us daily updates while we were gone. Debbie's rates are very reasonable. We came home to a happy(and tired from playing), puppy. We will definitely use Debbie again.
I highly recommend Debbie! Our dog (1.5 years) has stayed there twice and we have been super pleased both times. We look forward to the daily pictures/updates that we receive from Debbie through Dog Vacay. Our pup always comes back happy and safe!
Bo loved his stay with Debbie! He had a great back yard to play in and got to sleep with Debbie's daughter which was a real treat for him! I received pictures everyday which was so great. Bo will definitely be staying with Debbie again...I highly recommend her!
Debbie and her family are wonderful! She sent me my dog's pictures everyday even though when I was in overseas. This gives me a great feeling of security to know that my fur baby is being taken care of when I was away. I will definitely recommend it to anyone :)
Debbie was very accommodating and our dog had a great time. The evidence was in the pictures she sent! Will use Debbie again!
This was our first time using DogVacay and Debbie and her family took great care of our Dixie. We have been home for about 1/2 hour and she is just tuckered out from all the attention and playtime she got. We will definately be repeat customers. Thanks for much for taking care of our baby!
I was worried about our Sheltie, as she is very shy, but when we got an update In our email (with pics), which is great, I was relieved to find out she was warming up to Debbie! Our dog Copper isn't shy & he did great, as expected. They both got the extra care & attention they wouldn't have gotten in a kennel. We've already made reservations for our next weekend away!
I can tell our dog is treated like family.
Debbie was incredible. Brandy really enjoyed her stay and she played and had a lot of fun. In fact, when she got home, she slept a lot because she was so tired from playing . I am extremely grateful to Debbie and her family for keeping Brandy when we did not know what else we would do. Brandy is a part of our family, and I am thankful for the fantastic hospitality!
Great experience! My extremely shy dog warmed up to Debbie and her family quickly. They were very nice and sent updates every day.
Great experience with Debbie. She cared for Lucy like she was her own and sent my pics to keep me updated.
Great experience!! Thank you very much Debbie:)
Debbie was absolutely great! Her and her son, Jake, were incredible with our boys. We were extremely nervous to leave our boys for the first time. They made it so easy and kept us up to date with pictures and daily communication! We will definitely use them again!
Debbie and her family were absolutely wonderful to my dogs. She responds quickly to all messages, and even sent me pictures of the dogs while I was away to show me that they were having fun!
Awesome. We selected Deb due to her proximity and her reviews. Dropped the German Shepherd off while we stayed at Miramar Beach. She treated our dog just as we do. We mentioned that the dog was not accustomed to sleeping outdoors in the heat. Our dog not only got to sleep indoors with them, she slept right on the bed ( just like at home with us). Deb is the best!
Thanks Debbie for helping us put. Ellie had a blast.
Debbie and her family were great with our two dogs, one of our dogs is shy and timid and the other is boisterous. Debbie sent pictures everyday of the dogs having fun, and also sent message updates. I would highly recommend Debbie and do plan to leave my dogs in her care again should the need arise.
Great experience! Will definitely be using Debbie in the near future again.
Quick response! Our first time using DogVacay, Debbie was pleasant, and helpful with the whole process. We enjoyed the picture and texts updates too.
Our dog Leo seemed to have the best time at Debbie's. I loved getting pictures of him playing with the other dogs. I think he was actually sad to leave his buddies. :-) He got to run and play outside, which he loves! I would recommend Debbie to anyone staying in the Navarre/Destin area. Thank you Debbie!!
One tired and happy puppy came home! Very friendly home!
Debbie and her family took great care of our pets. Their house is located in a nice neighborhood, it is safe and pet friendly. The house has a nice backyard, perfect for allowing exercise. Debbie was very knowledgeable and asked a lot of questions to ensure she knew everything possible about our pets. I recommend and would use Debbie as an host again.
Debbie is absolutely WONDERFUL!!! This was our first experience with DogVacay and we couldn't be happier. Seriously. Debbie responds quickly and is very easy to work with. It's hard to describe, but from the moment we met her we had no reservations about leaving our dog, Bambi, with her. She is very ray warm and down-to-Earth. It's obvious she is patient and likes keeping dogs. We really appreciated the daily updates with pics. It was so nice to take a week-long vacation without feeling guilty about leaving our dog at the kennel. Debbie treats her furry guests like they are her own. I was actually worried Bambi wouldn't want to come home!!! Debbie's home is nice and is just as described with a HUGE backyard. Her dog Sunni (sp?) is precious. Overall, I can't say enough nice things about our experience and I would definitely recommend Debbie to other dog owners. I wish she was closer because I would let Bambi stay with her EVERY time we left town if I could. If I have the opportunity, I will certainly be a repeat customer. Thank you Debbie!!!
Debbie took great care of our dog while we were in the Navarre area on vacation. We didn't have to worry about her! We loved that she had other playmates during the day, and appreciated the picture updates Debbie sent. We will definitely be using Debbie again next time we're in the Navarre area!
We were first time dogvacay users and we were very pleased with the experience. Debbie was great at answering questions and quick with responses before we booked our dogs stay. During our trip she sent us pictures and updates on how he was doing. We would recommend Debbie and book another stay for our dog.
This was my dogs' first DogVacay experience and it was phenominal thanks to Ms. Debbie. Both my dogs were at home from the first day to the last. They ate regularly and never had signs of being homesick. Ms. Debbie was thoughtful and sent daily photos if my dogs at play. They always looked happy. She treated my dogs like they were her own. Without a doubt, I intend to use Ms. Debbie again the next time I go out of town. :)
This was the second time my Zippy stayed with Debbie, and -- as much as I don't like to leave my pup -- I knew he was in good hands. Debbie is also great about sending daily photo updates, and her pictures of Zippy always make my day. I'm very glad to know I have someone good to rely on who truly enjoys Zippy's company!
This was my first time using Dog Vacay & I'm so glad I tried it! I had to find a place for my schnauzer, Heidi, to stay for one night on short notice & Debbie was very quick to respond to my inquiry. I took Heidi to her home the next day for a meet & greet. She felt right at home with Debbie & her family. I felt at ease knowing Heidi was staying in a home environment rather than a kennel. Debbie kept me updated with pictures & let me know how Heidi was doing. I would definitely recommend booking!
Debbie is wonderful. Thanks for helping me find her
I had to leave town on relatively short notice to deal with a family emergency, so it helped immensely to know that my Zippy was in a nice home with people and other dogs to keep him company. I especially appreciated the daily photo updates -- they provided a happy boost every day while I was dealing with a difficult situation, and reassured me that Zippy was in good and caring hands.
Leaving our dogs to go away on vacation is hard - but leaving them with Debbie was easy.She sent me pictures everyday! I had no worries or GUILT leaving the dogs with Debbie. She and her lovely family are awesome. I totally recommend her, and will use her in the future. Also I traveled from Pensacola to Navarre, totally worth the drive!
Fabulous! I have used Deb three times all of them have been great. We have a crazy life and we are usually running late. She is always accommodating and my Doberman Gitmo loves her and her family. WELL DONE !
Debbie is the best host! We are VERY fortunate to have found Debbie on dogvacay. For the first time, we feel 100% comfortable leaving our dog with her and her family. The house has a great fenced in yard and Debbie and her family take care of our dog as if it were their own. Thanks Debbie!
Debbie was excellent. She took great care of my two Bichons. She took them on walks and let them sleep with her teen daughter. Her house was neat and her backyard safe. I highly recommend her.
Debbie is wonderful and so is the whole family. They ware so good to Jasmine she doesn' want to come home. Thanks Debbie!
Debbie and her kids watched our three dogs for two nights. We have a 6 yr (85 lb) Anatolian Shepherd mix, 3 yr (15 lb) Schnauzer mix and a 10 mo (40 lb) Blue Heeler Doberman mix, and I am so glad we found Debbie. While, our dogs are well behaved, three dogs is still a handful when they are playful (which is almost all the time around our puppy), we were nervous about not being able to have a friend come stay with them like we usually do, and the older ones have never stayed anywhere but with our parents. It was such a relief to get texts and photos daily from Debbie, and her daughter even let all three of them sleep with her!
I would recommend Debbie and her family to anyone in the Emerald Coast area. She really does a lot to make the dogs feel comfortable and stick to their normal routines, we will definitely be using her again if needed.
I am extremely happy with Debbie. She kept me updated on a daily basis. She texted me photos of my dog daily. I really appreciated that. I did not want to leave her in a kennel and was so happy to find DogVacay. I left her for 10 days. When I returned it was as if I had not left. My dog is happy to be home with me and there are no problems. I will definitely use Debbie again in the future. Thanks Debbie for taking good care of Fancy Pants!!
Debbie and her family were wonderful caretakers for our sweet Carbon/Precious. She sent us pictures and kept in touch with us to let me know how he was adjusting. She was so gracious and let me pick him up late in the evening. I will definitely recommend this service to my friends and will also recommend using Debbie! Thank you.
Debbie and her family were great! They really took care of our Lily and we'll definitely be booking with her again. Thanks again for making our vacations more convenient and less worrisome for our furry family member!
I left my two greyhounds with Debbie and her family for four days. It was the best experience for me and my pups! I've left them in a kennel before and could tell when I picked them up it wasn't a fun experience. When I picked them up from Debbie they were as happy as if they were at home! It was definitely like a vacation for them. After this experience with Debbie, I'll never leave my dogs in a kennel again. Thank you Debbie for making this a great experience for me and the dogs!
Awesome!! Deb was great beginning with our initial contact through Dog VaCay answering our questions along with arranging a date to bring our lab over to meet and greet Deb and her family. This allowed us to see where our precious lab would be staying. After determining that this was the place that we wanted our dog to stay Deb kept in contact regarding the arrival date and time. During our dogs stay she kept us updated daily with his activities and confirmed that he was doing great without his mom and dad. She offered to bring our dog home when we were ready to have him back home. Provided excellent care and exceeded our expectations. Definitely will be our first choice whenever we need someone to watch our boy!! Dog Vacay is much better than kenneling your precious pets!!
