About Teresa

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi My name is Teresa.

I can provide custom dog walking, as well as other pup services, to the residents of Riviera Dunes. Our family and I are new tenants here in your amazing community.

In our home town of Melbourne, I ran cage-free Duke's Den. I have been cuddling and caring for dogs all my life. I love all breeds and sizes, so long as they can hang out with our pup, Duke. Duke is a 5-year-old Mini Golden, and he may join us on walks,

Your pup's walk is personalized according to routine and any other specifics, I am happy to come by to feed according to any feeding schedule. I could provide transportation to a vet for routine care. I also offer: - Bathing - Additional walks, and administer meds. I've cared for puppies to senior pups.

Just ask for a custom quote for any special cases.

Teresa and her husband were great. They took my two dogs in last minute and kept them for five days. It was my first time leaving them with a dog sitter and she made me feel very comfortable. I received photos and updates daily.
Teresa and her whole family took such great care of my fur babies. Both of them were stressed due to a recent move to the area from Texas. But Teresa treated them like family. Her house and yard are perfect for taking care of dogs -- spacious and clean. My lab loved playing in the pool's shallow end. We will definitely use Teresa again!
Teresa is an amazing host. Not only did she make my Diesel feel comfortable and at home, but all of us as well. She sent us updates and photos of Diesel. At pick-up, she provided us with great tips, suggestions and feedback. Diesel enjoyed his bah, looked and smelled great. We know he had a great time with Teresa and Duke. Definitely the best!!! :)
Winston stayed with Teresa for a second time in May and was a well looked after pup. He knew the house and the family and had a great time. Teresa kept me posted with daily photos which was a nice touch. Will be booking again in August. Thanks Teresa and family, outstanding.
Thank you Teresa for making herself available during my crisis on short notice and odd hours. Maggie does so well after her visits with you. I think sitting in your pool helps her hips. Dukes Den is practically like rehab... she is getting great exercise dancing around with Duke. I highly recommend Teresa's Duke's Den. Maggie is loved on like family. Thank you again for being so accommodating. We love you guys!
We actually didn't know how Tj went on , she told us she would send lots of photos we got 7 and one 5 second video. She didn't tell us what he was doing or how he was doing , just very vague things. No pictures Thursday , after emailing her asking for a update she told us that she had took a video and accidently erased it. Friday once again no pictures contact up to point of telling her what time we were picking him up. Upon picking him up we were greeted at the door by her and some young girl we had never seen before with a leash on his collar attached around TJS neck . We specifically told her and wrote down on a bio of him that under NO circumstances should a leash be attached to his collar. The collar was only there for his ID tag. His harness is for the leash. She told us that she kept him upstairs away from the others ! . I bent over to hold him and TJ he wasn't excited or happy to see us he was looking and acting confused,in the car he wouldn't settle he just wasn't how he was when we left him , we finally got him home and he was pacing everywhere, I put him down some food and he was bolting it like he had been in a kennel and starved , he had 3 portions of food and came begging at us while eating so I put him some more food down he actually ate 5 portions of food . from being 8 weeks old and hes 2 years now hes never Eaten like that. All 7 days of vacation was stressful not knowing . Never again shall we leave him with someone who has small and large dogs together
Teresa was great and distracted Winston who was a little anxious when I dropped him off by taking him for a walk. I am going to make another reservation next month that's how comfortable I am with Teresa and Duke is the sweetest.
We traveled to the area and needed a sitter for the evening while we visited with family. We chose Teresa after reviewing her profile and she was close to our hotel. Teresa had the perfect home for dogs with a big back yard and segregated areas in the house (just in case).

She was very accommodating and truly a dog lover. We received a video of Sami playing in the back yard while we were visiting. Nice touch! Highly recommended.
You know your dog had a happy visit when she can't wait to get out of the car and runs to the front door at the drop off.

Maggie loves visiting with Duke so much she mopes around a few days after we return home. Teresa & her family are very warm and welcoming.

I couldn't ask for a better home away from home while we are gone.

Thank you.
Teresa was beyond accommodating and helpful with my last minute booking request. Barsa had a blast with the spacious property, Teresa, and beyond awesome Duke. Definitely coming back again!!!
Theresa and her family are wonderful. They definitely are animal lovers. They took such wonderful care of my dog Juno. I will definitely use them again for Juno home away from home. Juno had an awesome time playing with her dog. Who is so sweet and mild-mannered. I could tell Juno had fun playing in the nice size backyard which is well suited for that activity. They were very attentive and loving to my Juno. I had no worries about the care Juno received.
Thank you soo much Teresa
Theresa is wonderfully accommodating. She was able to work my Maggie Mae in with very little notice. She sent a picture of Maggie and it honestly looks like my dog is smiling. I couldn't have asked for a better experience for my Maggie. I think she was a little melancholy and missed Duke the next day or two. Duke's Den is nothing short of a resort for your pet. I highly recommend Theresa and will continue to use her services for future stays.
This is the first time I have used DogVacay to take care of my baby and I must say, my experience could not have been better! Teresa is the kindest person and my 9 year old poodle (Delilah) took to her instantly! In addition to taking Delilah for walks, giving her a bath, and playing with her, Teresa sent me DAILY text updates (with pictures) of my baby. When I picked Delilah up, she was relaxed and happy.......not to mention, soft and clean from her recent bath. Delilah loved this family and their beautiful retriever "Duke", and I could not have had a better experience! I will most definitely be using this service again and recommending Teresa to others!
Teresa was absolutely perfect! Her photo updates calmed my nerves about having abandoned him for a weekend. She even bathed him before we picked him up. He was softer and fluffier than he's ever been!
Gimli had so much fun with Duke that he literally didn't want to leave. He started going back upstairs after we leashed him to go home.
Gracie, our standard poodle, stayed with Teresa on February 11th. It was my husband's birthday and we wanted to take a day trip. Gracie is 13 months old and we were concerned to leave her with someone we didn't know. Our concerns were put to rest when we met Teresa on the 'meet and greet'. She immediately put our worries aside with her pleasant way and her obvious love for dogs. Gracie had a fun-filled day with Teresa sending us pictures and a video of Gracie playing with her dog, Duke. We are so happy to have met Teresa and will be bringing Gracie to her beautiful home again and again!!
Sadie stayed at Teresa's home for 4 nights recently and we could not have been happier with the care she received. She had other dogs to play with and was taken on regular walks as well. When we picked her up she was one tired but happy pooch! (Tired dogs are well behaved dogs.) Sadie will be seeing more of Teresa!!! Thank you Teresa for taking such good care of our girl Sadie.
First, I need to state this is our second stay with Teresa. I did not see my first review most likely my fault. As most pet owners we are picky and hate to leave our dog in a kennel, or boarding establishment. Teresa has been just what we were looking for, not just someone to watch your dog but treat my pet as if she was right at home with us. Not only did we have Teresa we had a family to tend to the daily duties including the love and care beyond our expections.Thanks Dogvacay and Teresa we will be back in the very near future.
