About Debbie

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, My name is Debbie. I have owned dogs for over 18 years and have been dog sitting for over 8 years, either at my home or, moving into others homes while their families are away. I have been working with dogs for over 12 years as a volunteer, foster family, board member, fundraising manager at Hood River Adopt A Dog (the Hukari Shelter) and have fostered over 20 dogs throughout the years. Dogs are my love and companions. I work here in Hood River at a 9 to 5 job but come home for my lunch hours to take care of my dog and any dogs that are staying with me. We go for walks or down to the waterfront to swim and run. Or, hike the trails that are near my house. Whatever your dog’s needs are I can take care of them. I also enjoy taking photos and videos of the dogs I am taking care of and sending them to their 'parents' to see how well they are doing while they are away. The dogs photos that you see on my page are of many dogs I have either fostered or dog sat for at my home. (except for my dog Molly and Jewel).

This was our first experience with Dog Vacay, and I would say we will definitely use the service again! Debbie was very accommodating with meeting ahead of time, drop off & pick up times, even over a holiday. Thank you!
Our dogs, which are both high energy, had a great time staying with Debbie. She was extremely accommodating and even sent us daily photos of our buddies playing and relaxing! Top notch dog care!
Debbie is the best; she cares for your dog like you care for your dog. Our dog was on multiple medications and elderly and she catered to her needs. I would totally use her again if I'm in the area!
Spent the day in Hood River and Debbie watched our little precious members. Debbie found out on her own Murphy loves frizzby. She had 2 of her own large breed dogs that got along perfectly with ours. Nice fenced yard and great setting. Highly recommend this sitter!
Debbie is wonderful! It was great for my dog to have some play time with her pups! She even accommodated my crazy schedule. Thanks!
My dog has never been away from either my close family or me and I was very nervous to leave him. Deb put me completely at ease, she has a wealth of experience taking care of dogs like mine. Ryder had a very good time at her house, she even let him relax on her couches:) She was also able to take him on walks. An another added bonus was that she sent me picture and video updates! I would recommend Deb to anyone who needs a sitter and doesn't want to use a kennel.
Great sitter! I felt very comfortable leaving our dog with Debbie.
Debbie was awesome! We have a 3 yr old dog that we had just adopted a few weeks prior and hadn't yet left him alone with anyone else but had already made plans to leave for the night. He can have some separation anxiety and since he had just been in and out of the shelter I really didn't want to put him in kennel boarding, but Debbie's place was great - he had company with the other dogs and Debbie and her husband. They had fun playing and going to the beach! She even sent me pictures! I would recommend Debbie to anyone - she was patient, responsive and clearly knows dogs well.
Debbie loves my Lucy as much as I do. Lucy always loves visiting and is exhausted when she gets home!
Everything worked perfectly.
Debi is awesome and so easy to work with. My dog loves going to her house!!!
Wonderful! I'm pretty sure Loel had as good of a vacation as me and may want to become a gorge dog :)
Debbie was the most amazing dog sitter for Jazz! We were in Hood River from out of state for our wedding, and needed someone nearby to watch our pup. Debbie worked with me to make sure Jazz would be well taken care of during his stay. She was responsive and flexible, and went out of her way to help us the whole weekend, especially given the fact that it was a busy holiday weekend. Jazz had tons of fun playing in the water, her backyard and with the other dogs staying there. We received lots of video and pictures the whole weekend. We would bring him back to stay with Debbie in a heartbeat! Thank you Debbie!!
We were in Hood River to celebrate my best friend's birthday. Not wanting to leave the dogs at a kennel, I was so happy to find Debbie on this website. She is a great dog sitter, very communicative and I felt very comfortable with leaving my dogs with her after we first met. I can tell Kylie and Moki had a great time with Debbie and her sweet dogs. I was impressed at how well my two little ones got along with them. Thanks again Debbie. You helped make our weekend more enjoyable by taking our stress off of the dogs and glad that our they got to go on their own adventure with you and your family. :)
Debbie was great! Keily was happy and well taken care of. She got lots of running and play time and Debbie sent us pics daily so we could see her having fun! Thanks Debbie!
Debbie was fantastic! Check in and out was super easy. My dog had a ball.
Debbie was just great! I was nervous about leaving my dog for the 1st time but she sent pictures of him having fun & being spoiled. She was very understanding of my over-protective dog-owner behavior. I was able to relax on my vacation knowing that my dog was happy & safe with Debbie.
Debbie did a great job for us again! Last minute booking over 4th of July and de came through for us. She gave lots of swimming time over the busy Holliday weekend and Dakota loved it!
Debbie was an awesome host! We have a high energy dog and can always tell if she has received enough attention when we get her back. It's clear that Debbie loves dogs and spends lots of time with those she hosts. We received daily pictures and videos of our Dakota out playing. That was a nice touch. We will definitely use Debbie again!
