About Deanna

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm an avid animal lover, and have been involved in rescue for more than 13 years. I have 2 dogs of my own, Gracie, an Australian Shepherd, who is 10 years old and has been with me since she was 10 weeks old, and Adabelle, an American Eskimo who is 5 and has been with me since she was 10 weeks old. I also have Pooks the Cat, who is 16 years old. I rescued him when he was just 6 months old.

My home has a pawtastic backyard that is perfect for your pup(s) to lounge and/or play in while you are on vacation. The yard is completely fenced in and the front & back yards are separated on both sides of the house by secure gates. Each Vacay day for your pup includes 3 walks around our neighborhood (unless you specify otherwise) plus unlimited indoor/outdoor playtime at home. Outdoor time is NEVER unattended - I feel very strongly that it's my responsibility to ensure your pups' safety as well as my own!!

My home is very dog friendly - it's not large or fancy, but it is very comfy. If your dog is allowed on the furniture at home, they're welcome to hang out on my furniture. If they sleep with you at home, they're welcome to do the same here. I will adhere to your rules when caring for your fur kid(s).

Dogs (cats & other pets) are truly my passion - and I love taking care of them!

I do offer reduced pricing on multiple dogs. For example, if you have 2 dogs, I charge full price for the 1st dog, and a very discounted price on the 2nd. So, if you have more than one dog, please ask me for a customized quote.

Deanna was such a great host! She was very attentive to my dog, Memphis and gave him lots of time to play with the other pups she was watching. He was definitely tuckered out when he came home, and that's always a good sign. She sent me updates and kept me informed of his behavior as well which was also very good to see. I would and do definitely recommend her to anyone needing a pet sitter!

Deanna is great! My dog absolutely loved her. She has a great yard for the pups to play in, and she sent me pictures of my dog throughout the time I had to be away from her. SUCH a great alternative to boarding your dog.
This was the first time I have used a pet sitter. (I previously put Mollie and Shadow in a kennel.) Deanna was fantastic!! She provided us with daily "pupdates" and plenty of pictures.

We were on a long vacation away from our fur babies and Deanna made it bearable to be away from them. We looked forward to our daily pupdates and no matter what we were doing and read them immediately.

Deanna played with them, fed them, brushed them, massaged them, slept with them and loved them as if they were her own.

I don't think they wanted to come home because of all the attention they received!! I can't say enough about how wonderful Deanna was and will definitely use her again.

Awesome attention to detail and interaction!!>..Sorry for delayed response...not a reflection of interaction...my fault!>..Would go back in a HEARTBEAT!!
My dogs' overnight with Deanna was a very good experience. When I picked them up, they were happy and were in perfect condition. Deanna let me know that everything went well and even texted me during our trip to let me know how the dogs were doing. That was much appreciated.

Everything was great, especially Deanna's patience with my puppy. Simon had a great time playing with other vacationers his age. I enjoyed the pictures and updates which put my mind at ease. I'll rate it a PAWSOME.
My two dogs were very well cared for by Deanna. It's obvious how much she loves dogs and both seemed very comfortable with her. She has a nice fenced-in backyard that even my little escape artist couldn't get thru.
Left our furbaby in Deanna's care for the first time this week and we felt great knowing he was going to be enjoying his day too. She sent update pictures throughout the day reassuring us that he was actually being played with and cared for. I forgot to mention he has a herniated belly button and she sent me a message just making sure I was aware-she took time with him to notice even the little things. He came home exhausted from a long day of doggie play, walks and fun.
Our dog is 6 months old and because of his age can be a handful of course, Deanna assured me she was ready and understood my worries. He still jumps, pulls on his leash and is work8ng on his manners-Deanna wasn't fazed. We are very thankful to know that our fur baby was being well taken care of.
Already made reservations for our next visit!

Super friendly and nice to the dogs!
It was our first time leaving our pup with someone other than family and Deanna exceeded expectations. I was a nervous wreck and she was great in answering all of my questions and emails. Ellie had a great time and I confidently know we can leave our pup with her anytime in the future and she will be well taken care of. Deanna puts the pups first.

Deanna is amazing! I have never left my dog with anyone and I was very nervous. Deanna made me feel less anxious and helped me through by answering ALL of my questions and sending me photos and updates of my sweet Maple all day! I will definitely be back!!

Wally had a great stay with Deanna! We received lots of pictures and daily updates about him, and he loved all of the cuddles and attention he got from her. She is a great pet sitter, especially for anxious pets that need extra attention. Thanks, Deanna!

Deanna was great with our dogs. One of our dogs cant stay in a kennel and Deanna was a great option. She treats them like her own pets. She has two fenced in areas and really listens to the owners and the pets. If i ever need to put my dogs up again, i would not hesitate to have her watch them.

I am very please with Deanna and her taking my pups into her home. She was very quick on responding and answered all the questions I had. She was very flexible with my drop off time in the AM before my flight out of town, which was really nice of her. (Thanks again) Upon meeting Deanna she was very sweet and I could instantly she how much she truly loves dogs. During the 3 days she gave me several updates, sent pictures and even sent me a video. My pups are like my kids and I felt great about leaving them with her and would definitely do it again!

Deanna is amazing! She responded quickly to all messages, answered all our questions, and most importantly, took wonderful care of our dog. When we picked up our pup, she was far more happy and relaxed than she has been with other sitters. I can't thank Deanna enough.
