Deb is awesome!! We use her again and again!!
Deb sent many pics and kept us updated daily. I recommend using her.
Deb was wonderful from start to finish. The hose is safe and clean and the neighborhood is wonderful. We will defiantly trust her wth our dog again! Thanks Deb!
Deb was fantastic with our 2 dogs. She sent a picture and updates and my dogs looked very happy! She even took them for walks in the wet Minnesota winter! They were exhausted when we came home which was another big plus! Thank you so much, Deb! Will definitely be using you again!
Deb provide a safe and comfortable environment for our beloved Pippa. She sent daily photos which made us know that she was doing well in Deb's care. If we have to travel and leave Pippa behind, we know that our choice will be in Deb's home.
First time with Deb, and my dog was happy and had a friend to play with during his stay..much better experience than with the last person I used.
Deb was a wonderful host! I'm so glad I found her on this site and we will definitely leave our dog with her again.
We couldn't have asked for a better home to leave our family with!
This was our first experience with DogVacay, and just leaving our two dogs (a black lab and golden retriever) with someone other than family. So, of course we were nervous. But Deb made us feel very welcome and comfortable during our meet and greet, so we immediately knew it would be a good fit. The house is very dog friendly, and they have a great fenced-in backyard for them to play. And Deb was great about giving us updates throughout the week. I know our girls were much more comfortable in Deb's home than they ever would've been in a kennel! We highly recommend Deb and will be using her again in the future! Thanks Deb!
They really love being with Deb and the photos she sends us a great!
It was very easy to leave our dog with Deb. She sent pictures and updates which made it easier. We would use her again!
What a fantastic host with a fantastic home! Deb and her family was extremely welcoming and it was very apparent the she knows what she is doing. As this was the first time I have ever dropped Brutus off anywhere I was a bit apprehensive, with anyone and anywhere. The minute we started talked all my concerns were put aside. I really appreciated the updates! I will definitely be calling on Deb again to watch my dog!!
Deb did a great job keeping vinny busy and sending out updates! I will definitely book again!
Deb was just wonderful to work with. I had no issues leaving our beloved dog with her and knew he was in good hands! Will definitely be using Deb's services again in the future :)
Deb is very sweet. She sent pics of Clover numerous times. Clover was very happpy. Thanks Rhonda
excellent! our 7 month old lab puppy came home happy and a little more grown up. before dogvacay rosie was obnoxious to other dogs and wanted to continuously roughhouse. After being with deb and mitch and the other dog that was there, rosie somehow now behaves much better around her previous dog friends! Thanks d & m! we will definitely be going to Deb and Mitch again...
Deb is awesome!!
Deb is the best! She sends pictures and updates and treats her guests as if they were her own dogs!!
Deb was great!!
Shilo loves going to Deb's. We can tell when we pick her up she had a great time.
Amazing! First time using this site and will definitely use Deb again. Worry free. My dog loved the walks!
Deb was wonderful. She accepted our reservation on short notice. We had a family emergency. Deb took great care of our little princess, Willow. Deb sent us email updates as well as photos of Willow. She has a really nice fenced in back yard which Willow enjoyed. I'm not sure Willow wanted to come home!!
Deb is the best. This is our second time having her dog-sitting Hana. Hana feels just like home with Deb. A very trust-worthy dog-sitter. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. Thanks for being awesome, Deb :)
Deb is super awesome. This was our first time leaving Hana with a sitter and Deb made our vacation worry-free. She sent us frequent photo updates on Hana. We will definitely ask her again next time.
Nala had a great time staying will Deb, would definitely recommend!!!
Deb is AWESOME!!
Deb was great as always! Leonard had a good time and we'll be booking again soon! Thanks Deb!
Deb watched our dog for a week and we felt very comfortable knowing he was well taken care of. We checked in a few times and he was doing great. Deb does a wonderful job!
Deb, Is the absolute best for my dogs!!!! They love her and are so happy to see her every time they are with her. Thanks again, Rose
Deb was wonderful! We have a large and energetic golden retriever, who loves attention, and Deb was so welcoming to him. She was also very accommodating with his allergy pill that he takes! He had a great stay and will definitely be using her again!

Deb was outstanding. I could tell how happy my dog was when i picked him up it felt like he was part of the family with lot of play and loving petting. Also appreciated the uodates she sent as well so you could see how well he was doing.....

I recommended to my stylist already! Plan to use reserve time for next vacation as well. :) :)
Deb is always flexible with pick up and drop off times. Finlay had such a great time that she slept from the time she got into the car until the next morning. I love knowing she gets to play with other dogs and be outside. I would recommend Deb to anyone!
Perfect experience. Flexible drop off and pick up times. Made me and my pup feel comfortable!
We've left our dog with Deb several times now and have become very comfortable with leaving him there. He is happy and well taken care of. Deb is highly recommended!
Deb always sends me either a picture and/or a message while she is sitting my dog. I have always felt she has my dog's best interest at heart. She lets me know how he did with her, her family, and other dogs she is sitting while my dog is with her. I would recommend Deb to all of my dog friends!
Deb is flexible with drop off and pick up. I know our dog is well taken care of and enjoys his play time with their dogs. You can tell she cares about the dogs and is a caring person. I would highly recommend her. This was our third visit.
Deb was great with Bailey our yellow lab! She was so tired out from playing. Great place to have your dog stay when leaving town!
We are repeat customers of Deb! Brock loves coming to stay at Deb's house. She treats him so well. We receive pictures and comments throughout the stay. She really gets to know her guests!!! Can't say enough good things about Deb!
Deb is wonderful! This was Jakes second visit. I feel very comfortable leaving her with Jake and know he is well taken care of. Deb makes it very easy to schedule time to pick up and drop off. She is very accommodating. A+.
Deb was incredible! She was flexible and was willing to take Finlay with meeting her first. She sent me updates and pictures which made me feel at ease seeing that Finlay was having a good time. I would recommend Deb to everyone and would definitely use her again!
Deb was awesome! I felt comfortable knowing my dog was being well taken care of. We even got some updates and pictures of how he was doing. I would highly recommend her.
Our dog Jewel had a great time staying with Deb! She has not stayed at a home with another dog before and it went great! Deb has a way of making dogs feel right at home and making them part of her family.
This was my first time using DogVacay. Deb did a wonderful job keeping my dog, Lucky, for the 13 days I was gone. She kept in touch with me via the web site and sent a picture with a message 3 - 4 times. I would definitely use Deb again! When I picked up my dog, she told me how the stay went and Lucky had a big doggy smile on his face the entire time. Definitely a 5 star experience!
They astutely get the best care when they are with Deb. She is great with them.
As always Charlie had a wonderful week on his vacay! He normally has anxiety but not when he stays with Deb! He loves it there! I love it because I can relax and enjoy my vacation knowing he is in great hands!! Deb is the best!!!
Deb was super flexible when it came to scheuling pick up and drop off times. She gave Zeus the special care he needs and updated me often on how he was doing. I would use Deb again in a heartbeat, I couldn't be happier.
Deb was great with Holly. I like the idea of leaving her in a home with a family. She also had fun with Deb's dog. I will definitely use Deb again.
As always I think Charlie enjoyed his vacation as much as we did! It's wonderful to know that Deb is there to take such good care of him. Charlie loves staying with her. If you want your pooch to be loved while you're away I recommend Deb all the way!!!!!!
Wonderful stay, as always! I've even moved 40 miles away and still use Deb!!
We love Deb!! She's awesome! I love that she regularly communicates and sends pictures of our dog, Brock!!
Deb is the best second dog mommie an owner can ask for. She treats my dogs as her own and makes me feel comfortable leaving them with her. She is a very caring, good person.

I don't have a worry in the world when Deb is watching my kids. I would recommend her 100%
Deb's home is becoming Graham's second home. He's always happy and tired when I pick him up. What more can you ask for?!
Karbo was treated like a member of the family and got to play, walk, and fetch several times aday. The yard has a good, high fence and plenty of room to run. Excellent experience!!!
Love having Graham stay with Deb. He is always tired when I get him home :)
Shilo loved going to Deb's. She was one happy dog when we picked her up. We will be bringing her back in the future. Judy
Our experience with Deb was wonderful. She took great care of our puppy and sent updates with pictures throughout the vacay, which helped us to relax and have confidence that our puppy was in good hands. We would definitely leave our pup with Deb again!
Deb is awesome!! She is very kind and will treat your pet as if he/she were her own!! She is extremely responsible and reliable and will send you updates with photos regarding your pet! We will definitely contact Deb in the future when we need a host for our dog!!
My dogs love being at Deb's place and always come home with us very well taken care of. Thanks to Deb for everything.
Our experience with Deb was top notch. I am so happy to have found someone that we can trust to care for our dog like family! We were worried about boarding our new puppy at a kennel during vacation so decided to try Dogvacay. I am so glad that we did. From the meet and greet through pick up I knew this was the right choice. Deb is an animal lover and has a way of putting both owners and the dogs at ease. She kept us posted on how things were going with our dog, sent pictures, and made it possible to enjoy our vacation without worrying about what was going on at home. We will definitely ask her to watch our dog in the future, and I recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone looking for a host.
They absolutely love being with Deb and she is great with them.
Deb was phenomenal with Chase. She sent us photo updates that were fun for the family to see. They have a great house and yard that I know Chase enjoyed. Chase came back calm and excited to see us!
Deb is wonderful and very accommodating. Will definitely use her again!
I really was impressed with Deb. She put me at east immediately as I knew I could trust her. She is thoughtful, kind and loving. She was easy to talk to and shared pics and comments throughout the visit. I would highly recommend her and I guarantee I will be seeing her again soon.
Thanks so much for keeping them this weekend. They are always so happy to stay with you. It is awesome to have someone that they enjoy and that we feel comfortable leaving them with. Rose
Deb is wonderful and my puppies really enjoy being with her and her family.
Always great! Feel very lucky to have found such a great sitter for my little Sydney. Reassuring to know she will be well take care of when I am away.
Deb was great. Treated Syd like she was her own dog and sent me text updates while I was away.
Deb was wonderful! My family and I took our dog to her house to meet her a few weeks before our vacation. Deb and her husband were so welcoming and so nice. Our dog made himself right at home the minute we walked in the door, which gave me a sense of reflief that he was already confortable there. After chatting with Deb and her husband for a while I felt completely comfortable leaving our dog with them for 9 days (and that says a lot because our dog is our baby). When I dropped our dog off at her house before we went on vacation Deb was very comforting and assured me that everything would be fine. She sent us pictures of our dog while we were gone, he looked so happy with Deb and her family. When we picked him up after vacation i could see that he had been happy the whole time we were gone. When we tried to leave, our dog tried to stay. I was a little hurt at first (thinking he liked Deb and her family better than us) but it made me happy that he enjoyed his time with them. I will definitly book reservations with Deb and her family in the future. Also, I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for doggie care.
The dogs had a great time with Deb and family. They were very happy and well cared for by everyone at the house.
Great! Easy to communicate with and had some very nice things to say about my pup when I picked him up :) He was so tired he barely even wanted to go hiking with me!
Deb was awesome! Lucy had a great time and Deb sent me pics and updates throughout the weekend. Would definitely recommend!
I have said no so many times to opportunities to go place and do fun things because I didn't feel comfortable leaving Charlie just anywhere. Then I got a chance to take a trip with my kids that I couldn't pass up. The stress was unbelievable for me when I tried to arrange for his care. My daughter told me about a website she found so I checked it Charlie would be well taken care of. When I met her I instantly felt at ease!! Charlie LOVED her too. Not only did Charlie have a great vacation but my trip was SO much better thanks to Deb!! I could go on and on! I have already recommended DogVacay as well as Deb already!!
Deb was great and the dogs seemed to havehad a great time.
If Max could talk, I think he would say he had a great time with Deb. He was happy and content when we came to pick him up. He was well cared for and loved.
Great experience! We felt very comfortable leaving our dog there which was also the first time we ever had to board/kennel her. We wouldn't bring her anywhere else.
Deb and Dog Vacay were great. This was the first time using Dog Vacay for me and I will definitely use it again. I have a German Shorthair puppy that has a ton of energy so I wanted to be sure that I found someone to watch her that had a fenced back yard which was easy with the website. I feel so much better leaving my dog at a home with someone that will give her some attention than in a kennel. She even posted a photo while we were gone, which was nice.
Deb was wonderful! It was easy to arrange drop off and pick up. Deb even shoveled a little place for my slightly finicky dog to do her business when it snowed. She sent us pictures every day and I could tell Ivory had a great time. We will definitely go back to Deb when we need a pet sitter again.
Deb is an excellent choice for someone to take care of your pups. Sydney was well taken care of and was treated as if she were the family pet. I received regular updates and even some pics along the vacay. This was my first time using DogVacay and this system is great -- helping me connect with a great person to take care of my little Syd when I am away on business travel. Just an awesome experience. :)
