About Debbie

50 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there! Hey, we have a great space with a BIG fenced backyard for some doggy friends to stay....and a couple of friendly dogs to keep yours busy and happy! Lots of treats and hugs too!
Thanks for taking a look here. I am a stay at home doggy Momma to Sadie and Fancy and I have had dogs all my life...they are really like my children, like yours probably are. We have a pretty free form home life, usually calm and quiet but fun and loving, and able to adjust to most situations. And I have been on the other side, needing a loving home where my girls could stay for a bit, and finding not much available. In my history I have taken care of most all kinds of dogs including big and small, physically challenged and those in need of medications, including injections. I have been a foster Mom for the Humane Society and support them whenever I can. I have no problem with updates or check-ins via email, phone or text. I can also be flexible if you need some sort of extra help.
Outside dogs are not our style and aggressive dogs are not welcome, so that all of our guests can be comfortable. I do not put a size limit on babies because some of the most well behaved dogs I've known have been big! I have a physical disability so if your dog needs a strong physical ability we are not the right match. It is fun for us to have visitors and in turn we will make it fun for your baby too! Thanks! Debbie

We left our 8 month old Lab puppy, Licorice, with Debbie over the Thanksgiving holidays. Debbie was very loving and attentive. Licorice had her first heat cycle while she was there, but Debbie was very understanding and even went to Pet Smart to buy doggy diapers! I really like the home environment. The dogs can go in and out through a doggy door and they all sleep in Debbie's bedroom at night. There is a large backyard with plenty of room to play. Debbie was great about texting with pictures. I can tell she truly loves dogs!

Debbie is wonderful. She kept me updated with daily notes and pictures of my dog. I will definitely use Debbie again in the future.
Aunt Debbie was amazing! She's our go to sitter for our dog. Her house is very pet friendly and the back yard is a perfect play area. We feel very comfortable leaving our fur baby there. We already booked our next vacation with Aunt Debbie.
Debbie is fantastic! I received at least one text per day (sometimes more) with pictures and updates. Yard and home are perfect for pets...will definitely be using her again.
Debbie was great! She was so sweet and kept me updated everyday with pictures and texts of my Bear! Her home was perfect for dogs with a huge backyard, a doggie door, and concrete floors. It was my first time using DogVacay and I will for sure use Debbie again! 10/10 recommend

"Aunt Debbie" was wonderful! She was lovely and her home is nothing but dog friendly! Our pup had a great stay and we will go to Debbie again and again. Highly recommend!
OMG this was an incredible experience from the moment we arrived and dropped off our fur baby until the moment we picked him up! I was SO very comfortable leaving Snowball with "Aunt Debbie". And that surprised me but you could just see the love of dogs in her and our dog took to her immediately which made me happy! Thank you Debbie and we highly recommend her !!!!

Debbie was a wonderful host. She kept me updated on how my little fur ball was doing and she was very flexible with my schedule. She truly cares about each animal in her care as if it were her own. Her two dogs were great and her yard was perfect for my my dog to run around and play. I highly recommend!!!

Debbie is Great lady, her two girls were great dog playmates and just the best dog sitter in the Gulfport-Mobile-New Orleans area.
Debbie was a very congenial lady who met us and our Chip with a smile. The home was clean and doggy friendly. She took Chip under her wing and became Aunt Debbie. She sent us pictures often and it was obvious Chip was comfortable and happy. I would definitely call on Denbie again and refer her to all my friends.

Debbie was great with my dogs! I have 3 that can be a little tough to manage and she did a fantastic job. She is a true animal lover and cared for my dogs as if they were her own. Her home has a huge back yard for the dogs to play. I will definitely call her if I need pet sitting services again. Highly recommend!

Debbie is a warm, caring, friendly person with a totally dog friendly home with a large, grassy fenced yard. Her two dogs were sweet and friendly and my dog, Luke, began playing and running with them right off the bat. She sent me pictures and updates every day which I greatly appreciated. I am so glad that I was able to leave my dog with her where I know he was cared for like one of her own and he had the company of other dogs. I highly recommend Debbie and will definetly use her services again!!

Debbie was wonderful with our Teddy. Teddy is 10 years old with diabetes and blindness due to cataracts. Debbie was able to administer insulin shots, oral medication, and eye drops on a daily basis. She sent pictures and comments each day to let us know everything was going well. When we picked Teddy up after a week, he looked great! I recommend Debbie very highly and plan to contact her again when I need someone to provide a loving home environment while I'm away.

Debbie was great. She notified us of severe weather in her area several hours before our scheduled arrival time so that we could be aware of the conditions and be prepared for possible driving delays.
Was a great first experience with DogVacay! Debbie was excellent! No worries on our end about leaving our baby with her! Will definitely use her again!!!
Was our first time using Dogvacay we selected Debbie based on her reviews, this turned out to be an excellent choice for us!! Very nice lady, her dogs were well behaved! Debbie and her girls welcomed us and our dog into their home with no problems! Was a relief not to have to leave our dog in a kennel or somewhere where he would be locked up in a crate while we were away! We will definitely use her again if we go back to the Gulf!,

Debbie was the best venus had a great time being away from me overnight. Debbie send pictures of venus playing so i would not worry she was just fine. Debbie my friend when i am on the coast thanks again
Debbie was great! Very flexible and always kept me informed. We will definitely continue to take our puppy to her!
We were looking for a place for our 3 rather large dogs while we went on vacation. We didn't want them to be confined in a traditional kennel, and we needed some special attention for our lab who has thunder phobia. Debbie responded to our initial questions very quickly and that evening we were at her place with our dogs for a meet and greet. We were impressed with Debbie's calm, warm and welcoming approach, her obvious love for dogs and her attention to detail. Also, her availability meant there would be an around-the-clock presence when thunder storms hit. While we were gone Debbie sent texts with pictures and updates that gave us complete peace of mind. She went above and beyond to comfort our baby during storms and seemed to genuinely enjoy our girls. Her big backyard provided enough room for a good romp, and her dog door allowed the dogs easy access to the yard. We could not have been more pleased and are so happy to know that when we want to go away we have a place for us our girls to be taken care of. We heartily recommend Debbie!

I'm so grateful to Debbie for taking care of our dog Jackson. She has a wonderful set-up at home with a large, fenced back yard and two very sweet dogs of her own. They all welcomed Jackson into the home, and I was reassured that he was just fine when I got a photo from Debbie an hour after dropping him off that showed them all playing together. I would definitely recommend Debbie, and I hope she'll be available to watch Jackson again.

Debbie did a great job with our pet!!! Would recommend to anybody
Debbie was amazing! My dog had a great time and didn't want to come home! She slept for the whole day once she left because she had so much fun. I will definitely use her again!
Debbie went out of her way to send me emails about my dogs. I was very pleased with her suggestions and her help to keep my dogs as happy as possible. She exceeded my expectations. I received lots of pictures and reports of their well being. Thanks much.

Debbie was wonderful! We were looking for a home setting and not a kennel for our 2 min pins. She kept us informed and sent pictures. It was nice to get away and not have to worry about them. So lucky we found her! We are definitely using her services again! Highly recommend her!

Debbie is amazing! She takes very good care of the dogs, keeps in touch with the owners and gives helpful advice if she notices something about your pet that you may have overlooked. She is highly recommended by me and my puppy! we love her!
Debbie made me feel as if she loved MY lil guys like her own. She kept me updated on their stay with messages and pics which made me feel comfortable. If I have need for a sitter again I will definitely use Debbie's services.
This nice lady accepted our pets on short notice and after several date changes. She even accepted our 5:30 AM drop off time!

Her house is clean and she has a large, fenced in back yard where our dogs were able to run around and play with her pets.

While away, we were inundated with photos, updates and assurances, which we appreciated.
Expecting our pups to be excited to see us and ready to return to their home however, we were amazed at how uninterested in leaving they seemed to be, but returned home pooped from play and ready to go to bed immediately.

We plan to use Debbie again in the future.

Debbie was a great sitter! She's very caring and it's easy to see that she has a genuine love for dogs. She is there to spend time with them and get to know each dog she watches. She even had no problem with my gentle giant (Irish Wolfhound) taking up most of the house :).
I appreciated the pics and updates to let me know that my dogs were comfortable while I was away.

Debbie was great with our dog Brody. He had a great time and we felt very comfortable with leaving our little guy with her. She was great sending us pictures and a quick note telling us how he was doing every day. I would use and recommend Debbie to my friends who are traveling in the Gulfport MS area.

Thanks again Debbie for a great experience

Very helpful and friendly! Always willing to work with you in any way possible and does an excellent job taking care of your dog! I couldn't be more grateful. I would recommend her to anyone in the local area in need of doggie daycare services.
Debbie was awesome! Very caring and communicated with us throughout the entire vacay!
Aunt Debbie was GREAT! She has a cool doggie door so I can go outside whenever I want and other dogs I can play with. She spoiled me like I was her own dog. I can't wait to come back!!
My daughter and I were on vacation and needed a dog sitter last min. Deb was so friendly and wonderful. Our dog can be a bit of a grouchy old man, and when we picked him up 3 days later he was such a happy guy. We think he really enjoyed his time hanging out with Deb, we know we sure did. Deb is a stay at home dog mom, so if you want a dog sitter who can really give you dog the affection and attention they deserve, I'd def suggest her.

Debbie was an excellent host to our Napoleon. She sent picture updates so that we could see him having fun and enjoying his stay. We will definitely will book with her again in the future.
