About Deborah

45 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am very a experienced dog sitter and I love all kinds of animals. As I was growing up my Mom raised, showed and judged Borzoi, so I have been around dogs ever since I can remember. I have worked at a vet, watched dogs in my home, shown dogs, and had my own animals for more than 25 years. I have also gotten my wildlife rehabilitator license and care for orphaned or injured wildlife. I can give medication and take care of at risk or special needs animals. I am home most of the time and can give your animal a lot of love and attention. My dogs are easy going and enjoy company to play with. My grandson is 8 years old and he has grown up with dogs and he loves to play catch with them. We have a fenced in back yard and can also take dogs for walks, as we live in a great area for walking.

Izzy can't wait to stay again!
Debbie was great! Spike and Hershey felt right at home and she made them feel like family. We will definitely use her again the next time we go out of town.
Deb and her husband met us at our car. Our dog, a chihuahua liked it there immediately. Deb and her husband sent pictures of our dog walking around looking content. He loved sitting on the husbands lap, just like at home. We were very happy with this home!
We did not get to have a get acquainted meet before and having a nervous older dog I was also nervous.. As it worked out it it appeared all was well and Snickers was fine when we arrived home. It was reassuring to get pics while we were away. I would use Deborah again. Thanks
Deborah and her family treated Lucy like royalty. They not only took good care of Lucy but sent us msny photos of her. This was helpful since it was our first time leaving her. We were so concerned for her safety but we did not need to worry.
Deborah has so much experience with dogs that I would consider her an expert on dog care. I would highly recommend her if you really love your pet.
We've used Debbie several times and have always been extremely pleased. It's so much easier to leave our dog, Lincoln, when we know he's going to be so well taken care of. I honestly could not say enough good things about her and the care she gives. We wouldn't leave Lincoln anywhere else!
Deborah and her family are wonderful hosts! My Kelsey is going back for her 3rd visit. I never have to worry about her care - they are very responsible, nurturing and flexible. Kelsey is on different meds and special food and she always comes home healthy.

I give Debbie 5 STARS!

Once again Pippin enjoyed his stay with Debbie and her family of men and dogs. They are great!
Deborah was Wonderful with Sophie!!!
Once again, by the end of his stay, Pippin seemed to be eager to get back to Deb and her dogs after our morning walk. I hope she continues to host dogs!
Nice people. Nice home. Very pleased with our first dog vacay experience. Will definitely be repeat customers.
We left a happy dog and picked up a happy dog. Abby played with her dogs. I appreciated the email her first night with pictures. I would leave her there again.
Toby had a wonderful time staying with Deborah. My dog is a senior dog, sleeps most of the day...but at Deborah's, he played and enjoyed being around her dogs. When I picked him up, I had a "much younger" Toby on my hands. Deborah turned out to be the best sitter Toby has ever had.
We and our dog Tucker did a meet-and-greet with Deborah a few days before the actual boarding period. He enjoyed meeting Deborah's other dogs and then got along very well with them, Deborah and Deborah's family during his stay.

We will absolutely use Deborah again when we need to travel; it is so much nicer for Tucker to have a warm, welcoming temporary home rather than a traditional kennel.
Debbie Fleming continues to be an excellent and considerate host to Jana! Jana immediately feels 'at home' when we bring her to Debbie's and is a happy, healthy and well cared for pup when we pick her up! We are SO glad to have discovered Dog Vacay & Debbie!

Mike & Paula Jordan
Thanks again for a great stay!
Our dogs had a great time with Deb. She clearly loves dogs, having 3 of her own, and ours got along fabulously with hers. She had no problem with our picking up Farrah and Bueller for daytime fun, returning them in the evenings - she was very flexible about all of it. We were happy they were very well cared for when not with us.
Our pups had a wonderful time staying with this family! They are great and very accommodating. Pepper and Noli were worn out and slept 2 days straight after playing with Debbie's adorable dogs. We will definitely be booking with Debbie again if we make our way back to this area!
Deborah was a lovely host. Watson was happy to see me, but seemed to adapt quickly to her environment ... other dog friends (1 large and one small) ... so he felt right at home. She was accomodating and caring. I would recommend her and use her hosting services again.
After a shaky start, Pippin appeared to settle in and enjoy being one of the family. I have no hesitation in bringing him back to Deborah for a stay when I next travel to NC.
Deborah was an excellent host for Popcorn, we'd be happy to entrust our (now two!) dogs to her any time we're visiting Asheville.
I would leave my standard poodle with Deborah again in a heartbeat. She is very caring and has two lovely dogs he took to right away. She gave me a full report on his activities while he was there, which I appreciated and enjoyed.
Debbie was super accommodating. She even met my dog and I at the park beforehand so everyone could meet.
Max was taken great care of, and he really enjoyed playing with the other dogs.
As always a very pleasant stay . When we arrived to drop Jana off she ran in and started playing with Debbie's Borzoi Toby. She did not notice when we left. Then she settled in and enjoyed a week with Toby and Noggin at Debbie's . 5 stars.
Debbie is very fast to respond to questions and inquiries through the site here. Plus she was extra flexible with our drop-off and pick up times. She is the only person our dog and us feel comfortable with. I highly recommend her!
Deborah is WONDERFUL to work with! Sebastian always has a great time with her :)
As always, Dolly was well taken care of and received plenty of attention. Debbie is an excellent host and highly recommended!
Sophie has always enjoyed her stays with Miss Debbie! Thanks for being such a kind and caring petsitter.......we love the pics too!
Deborah took great care of my fur girl! Thank you, Deborah!
Our little blind and deaf Dolly gets plenty of loving attention from Debbie and her family. She is in the best of hands there.
I think Dolly wants to move in with Debbie and her family!
Sebastian LOVES Deborah & her family! Excellent Host!
Deborah was wonderful with our golden and even emailed a couple of pictures of her playing with their dogs. It was very reassuring to know our girl wad enjoying her time in their home. Thank you Deborah!! ( And Family )
Dolly feels quite at home and is a regular visitor now. We are 100% satisfied with the care and attention Dolly receives from Deborah who is indeed a very experienced and competent dog person.
Deborah took great care of our geriatric Dolly and we were very pleased. Dolly will become a regular happy visitor with her. Highly, highly recommended!
A very comfortable, caring and friendly environment with an experienced and accommodating host.
Deborah is FANTASTIC! Sebastian loves her so much and she is a pleasure to work with!
Deborah and her family are great. Cassie came home a very happy dog after spending 3 nights there. I did a meet and greet and met the whole family. This means to me that everyone is on board with having an extra dog in the house. Cassie and her 2 dogs got along well and played happily. I will not hesitate to use her again when I have to board. Thanks Deb for all you do!

Mickey had a great stay with Debbie. We had complete peace of mind knowing he was well cared for and happy during our absence. We would surely use her again. That was our first experience at leaving him with someone we didn't know. It was a great experience.
Deborah was a wonderful host. She was very nice and tended to the dog very lovingly. Would definitely board our dog with her again if the opportunity ever came up.
Sophie had a great stay....thanks again!
Deborah, her husband and son provide a really lovely homey atmosphere. Their home is charming and they were friendly, easy to work with, easy to contact and sent me pictures every day we were out of town. I had a very good feeling as I drove away, leaving Lucky Dog there for a week and that good feeling was confirmed when I picked him up and found him obviously calm, comfortable and happy. I would highly recommend Deborah and her family.
Our dog seemed to have a fabulous time with Deborah. It's wonderful to know that she has a safe and fun place to stay when we are out of town. She came home happy and tired, and we look forward to her next visit with Deborah!
Deborah is a delightful person and I felt totally comfortable leaving my sweet Hannah with her for our ten day vacation. I know Hannah was taken care of in a loving home and I look forward to using Deborah again. Totally approve!
Mac loves to go to Deborah's house, he is always well taken care of and gets to play with Nogin and Toby.
Debbie was great with Ringo! We felt so at ease leaving our little buddy in her home for over a week. It was hard for us to leave him, but we knew he was in good hands and would have other doggie friends to keep him busy. We really loved getting the pictures everyday, so that we could see what he was up to. Thanks Debbie!
Debbie and her family were wonderful with Sebastian! We were so nervous leaving our baby for the first time and she removed those fears upon meeting her. The pictures really helped us to feel better while we were away from our puppy. Sebastian seemed happy! I couldn't come to terms with boarding him in a kennel and thanks to Debbie I didn't have to! I would recommend Debbie and PetVacay to everyone and will use their services when needed in the future!
Debbie is a true animal lover, and great with dogs! Our dog had a great time and did not want to leave. We will use Debbie again!!
Banjo had a fabulous time with Deborah and her 2 and 4-legged family members. She was happy and tired when we picked her up, and seemed very well-adjusted. We look forward to Banjo enjoying her "vacation time" again in the near future.
Deborah was wonderful. Mac loved his say with her, we will use her again.
Our dog Buddy was well taken care of by Deborah. She sent us photo's of Buddy with her family and pets and his little tail was up and happy in the photos. He was treated as one of the family members. I was a little concerned with her dogs being so much larger than Buddy, but Buddy seemed to play with them as if they were his size. Thank you Deborah and family for taking such good care of Buddy for us.
Deborah was wonderful with our two dogs. She accommodated our drop-off and pick-up times and took very good care of our 17 year old dachshund who needed meds given to him. Our other dog loved playing with her grandson. I would leave them again with her without hesitation. Thank you Deborah for making our vacation stress free without having to worry about our "kids."
We strongly sensed a kind, caring person in Debbie when we introduced our beloved labradors - and ourselves - to her and her resident dogs. Our intuition was confirmed when we saw the look in our four-legged family members' eyes upon our return to her house to collect them.

We emphasize that our guys stayed in a real home, a true B&B, nothing close to a kennel, which explains the anxiety-free calm they displayed at the end of their stay.

Debbie did indeed take excellent care of them, which means that she took very good care of us. And for that we're grateful.

We do not hesitate to recommend Debbie to anyone who loves and is deeply concerned about the welfare of mild-mannered canines. We recommend that only nice people with nice pets apply!

Linda and John
Thanks again-- Sophia loves her time with "Miss Debbie!"
Sophie did great! Thanks
Total 5 Star ++ !!! Debbie (and her family) were awesome hosts for our Beagle. (Charley) We actually traveled to Hendersonville for the weekend, but could not keep our dog where we were staying. We felt very comfortable leaving our dog with her, as it was immediately obvious he would be treated as if he was one of her own pets. Here dogs are very friendly and Charley had a blast playing with them. I will definitely use her again when we return to Hendersonville. If you want your dog(s) to be treated with care and genuine affection, and have some really awesome friends to play with while you are away, leave them with Debbie! See you the next time we are in the area!
Loved getting the daily pictures! I felt so comfortable leaving my "baby" with Deborah. Rosie loved her so much she has been depressed since she got home :(! Highly recommend!
My family has a house in Hendersonville and I have been visiting the area all my life. I have been bringing my husband down for a few years now and he loves the area as well. The only problem is the family home is not dog friendly and we hate the idea of Kenneling our girl for more than a few days. That's when I stumbled upon Dogvacay.
First of all the site was easy to use. Our host family responded to our reservation request immediately and the whole process of setting up the reservation, making drop off plans and paying was as simple as it gets. It was so nice to have our dog Banjo with us as we traveled the 10 hours from Maryland to North Carolina and things only got better once we arrived.
Debbie was highly accommodating. We wanted to pick Banjo up and take her on hikes with us and she was really flexible. She sent us lots of pictures and most importantly, Debbie took Banjo's quirky personality in stride. Our dog gets very dirty outside, like to dig, "talks" a lot and even slept in Debbie's bed with her!! Debbie's dog Noggin was Banjos instant Best friend and we were able to really relax and enjoy ourselves knowing our dog was close by, safe and having a blast. We were afraid she wasn't going to want to leave!
Overall our experience with Debbie was fantastic. I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to keep their dog in the Hendersonville area. We will absolutely be using her services again!
Thank you Debbie and Dogvacay!
Deborah truly exceeded my expectations. She is the first stranger I have ever actually trusted with my dog! Throughout the process she was very easy to reach and quick to communicate.
As soon as our meet and greet, I knew I'd made the right decision. Her home is nice and peaceful, with just the right amount of playfulness. She made a very hard situtation for me (being away from my little buddy) as easy as it could have been - and much easier than I could have imagined. Deborah I can not thank you enough!
Deborah was great, she was easy to get in touch with and Louie had a great time, he seemed happy and well rested when I picked him up!
We appreciate Deborah's patience and attention to Susie. She gets our recommendation!
Deborah was an amazing host to my four little dogs. They weren't the best of guests -- we arrived late, Grover barked at her bird, and there were a couple bathroom accidents, but Deborah took it in stride. She even brushed their fur, and washed Gussie's tear stains. The pics she sent throughout the stay showed that Fozzie would have been content to just live there forever. The three maltese dogs loved playing with Deborah's grandson. Her house was warm and dog friendly, and she gave my dogs the run of the house -- they even got to sleep in the big bed! They were happy and very well cared for throughout their stay. Overall, I highly recommend Deborah, and will be back the next time I stay at Kanuga.
