About Debbie

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My 'Lots of Sweetness For Your Sweetie', has its kennel license. I am licensed to board. I will make sure your Sweetie has a fun, healthy and relaxing time here at Deb's!

You will have a peace of mind knowing your pup will be in excellent, loving hands. I give daily text and/or email updates so that you know that your pup is having a great time. This will help you have a great time too when you are away!

The cuteness keeps on coming in our smoke-free, clean home. Bella is our 7-year old Cockalier Spaniel. She enjoys each and every day and wants to share this with you!

We have an acre and a half yard in beautiful Williams Township. Lots of room to play, have fun and relax! Our neighborhood has a peaceful atmosphere.

If your Sweetie likes walks, she/he will be in heaven during their stay here. We have a beautiful neighborhood and go for walks almost every day. Bella and I LOVE the great outdoors.

We would preferably board and provide daycare to the medium to smaller size dogs but would open our arms out to any cutie who would like walks or need a pet sitter at their home!

Let me know if you have any other cutie (ex.: bird, rabbit, hamster, etc.) That needs a vacation while you go on yours. I will be happy to take care of them. Just ask!

We look forward to giving special care and lots of love to your Sweetie!!
In addition to overnight boarding, I offer doggy daycare! I’d be happy to keep your pup entertained while you’re away for the day.

ALSO!...In addition to vacation boarding and pup daycare, keep me in mind for these ideas!...

If you and your family are planning a trip to the Lehigh Valley and would like me to take care of your pup during the day or overnight, I would be delighted!

Here are some of the many attractions that are very close to me. My family and I are right in the middle of everything!

-Dorney Park, Dutch Springs Aquapark, Crayola Experience, State Theater, DaVinci Science Center, PPL Center, Steel Stacks, Sands Casino, Coca-Cola Park (Iron Pigs Baseball), Martin Guitars factory tours, Allentown Fair, Musikfest....are just to name a few!

Go to Tripadvisor - Lehigh Valley attractions for a list of additional attractions to explore that are in my area!

To add to that, there are MANY colleges that are very close to my home. If you are traveling with your pup, visit with your family and friends for the day and I will take special care of your Sweetie!

Here is a list of some of the colleges that are close to my home:

Lehigh University, DeSales University, Moravian, Lafayette to name a few.

Of course, if you are going on an extended getaway, it would be a pleasure for me to take care of your Sweetie!

Debbie is terrific. Came back to a happy, well-cared for dog. Gladly give 5 stars.
Debbie was super friendly and has a beautiful house in a good area. She took Zoey for a long walk with her doggie, Bella, and her daughter. My dog Zoey sometimes has problems with eating when strangers are watching her, but she did not have these problems with Debbie. Glad we used this service! She was also flexible with drop off/pick up time. Would definitely use her again if I am ever in the area.

Dear Debbie,

Thank you so much for your awesome care of Mario while we were away at our daughter's wedding. Loved getting the daily update and this is the first time we left him with anyone that he didn't seem upset or stressed out when we picked him up. I know he can sometimes be a handful because of his separation anxiety and leash pulling but you seemed to take it al in stride. First time I did not stress about him while I was away. Thanks for making that possible!

Debbie was a wonderful host for our 2 cocker spaniels. She took excellent care of them, sending us pictures each day. Her home and yard were beautiful and gave our dogs a huge playground. This was the first time we boarded the dogs, 3 & 6 years old and we were a little reluctant but Debbie was very nice and made us feel everything would be fine.
We will definitely have Debbie take care of our girls again.

Debbie was great. In the past, we always used friends/family to watch our small dog Gizmo. After adding a 2nd/larger dog to the family this past winter we felt it was no longer fair to ask for dog sitting favors and decided to look into a paid pet sitting situation for now and the future...which led us to DogVacay and Debbie. We really weren't comfortable with a traditional kennel situation and after reading through Debbie's reviews, decided to give it a go.

What can I say, we were very pleased with our experience. Debbie kept in regular contact with us during our weekend away and let us know how things were going with our two pups. That really put our mind at ease. Definitely an animal person, when we wen to do a meet and greet, we were introduced to her dog, cat, birds and fish.

We would definitely use her again to watch our furry family members.

My little Jack had fun with Debbie's dog Bella because as we were leaving he was whimpering and looking back towards the house. I think he wanted to stay! He doesn't get to see many dogs around our home so I know this was a treat for him! Debbie seems very caring and her love of the pets she sits for shows. Will definitely call her again for our future dog sitting needs. Thanks again Debbie!

We were very pleased with the care that our dog Bella received from Debbie. We appreciated the updates and photos that we were sent during her stay. It is comforting to know that when we are on vacation our little girl is in a loving, safe home.
Debbie is excellent! She touched base with me to assure me my 3 doxies were doing great! 1 is elderly she listened to all her special needs.... I also have one who is a tad feisty Debbie knew just how to handle her too!
Wetherby had a great stay!! Thanks Debbie!
Heidi and Tucker had a great long weekend with Debbie, her family and her dog Bella! Made our dogs feel right at home from the very start. Debbie was very attentive to our furry kids making they're visit and my vacation wonderful. Thank you Debbie. We'll see you again soon.

Our dog Buddy has been with Debbie several times. Always well taken care of and comes just fine. We'er glad we found Debbie!
Woof!!!!!woofwoof, ruffff grrrrr rufff, ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Debbie is the best. I love her too.
Our dog Buddy has stayed with Debbie several times. When we leave him with her, he goes with Debbie willingly, a big sign that his staying with her is good, and he always comes back to us fine...treated well and no kennel cough... that he would always get when left even in the best of kennels and with the double medical protection to keep Buddy from getting sick!

I would definitely recommend DogVacay to friends, have many times already!!!

Debbie is amazing! She made things so easy for me during a busy work day while I was visiting the area. She took amazing care of my little pup, seat belting him in the car and taking him to her house to play with her doggie Bella. The two of them got along great and she sent me pictures of the two together. She even sent me updates every few hours with the cutest framed pictures of my pup. I never had to worry about him once. I knew he was in good hands. Debbie and her family are responsible, outgoing, gentle, and excellent with dogs! I would highly recommend her services!

Debbie is great. She has a natural love for animals. I wouldn't leave my dog with anyone else. Thank you Debbie for a worry free vacation !
Thank goodness we found Debbie. Having never been away from our four year old Labradoodle who has separation anxiety, we knew we could not leave her at a boarding facility. Debbie and her family took excellent care of Lucy - even sending daily texts and pictures! Now we can finally go on another vacation. Would definitely go to Debbie again.

debbie is fantastic! Lulu loves her visits!
Debbie was very helpful to us at the last minute when another dog vacay reservation fell through due to a personal emergency. She sent notes and pictures and has a spacious yard for dogs to enjoy. The only concern we had was that the doggy bed we gave her had a very bad urine odor when we got it back. Our Murphy seemed to really enjoy the stay

Debbie was very loving to my dog. Taking pictures and sending texts as to how was doing reassured me that he was very happy. He wasn't sure weather he wanted to go or stay with her when I came for him. What a good decision I made when I used her services.

Our dog Buddy stayed with Debbie this past week, he has been with Debbie before but not for such a long stay. It would is very comforting to know that Buddy is in good hands, is carefully taken care of and given personal care. Buddy came home happy and healthy, thanks Debbie!

Debbie is so caring and conscientious. Bonny loves her vacay at Debbie's house!
We boarded our two very elderly dogs with Debbie over the Thanksgiving weekend. One dog had never before been kenneled so we were very concerned about where we would be able to place both during our travels. From scheduling the meet up to accommodating us for our scheduling needs, Debbie was fantastic throughout the whole process. Debbie has a beautiful home and piece of land for the dogs to explore so we felt very comfortable leaving them in her care. She was kind and very attentive all of us. We also very much appreciated the updates throughout the weekend as we were anxious to how our boys would take to their new environment. We highly recommend Debbie -don't hesitate to make a reservation with her!

Deb and her family took really good care of our 14 week old Golden Retriever puppy, Sparky, while we were out of town for Thanksgiving weekend. Thanks, Debbie!
On occasion we would put Buddy in a kennel and he always came out sick in spite of getting preventive shots. So we turned to the alternative of Dogvacay, found Debbie, had a meet-n-greet, then had our dog Buddy stay with Debbie. It was a great experience for Buddy and us! Debbie was more than gracious, Buddy was very well taken care of, and it was evident how Debbie understood Buddy's personality. We will not hesitate to ask Debbie to care for Buddy in the future when the need arises...it is a win-win!!

Debbie and her family again provided a perfect stay for Chess and Maggie while we attended our daughter's graduation day festivities. Debbie sent several texts and pictures which assured us that our doggies were ince again being very well cared for throughout the day.

as usual, we were delighted with Deby and her family's care of Puppy while we were traveling. It is so great to have someone you really trust and whom you know your pet trusts also.
Our two Corgi's thoroughly enjoyed their two days away at their own doggie vacation. We had been concerned since it was their first time to be away from home after almost two years, but Debbie and her family were wonderful hosts for our pups, giving them a home environement with lots of loving and fun attention. We highly recommend them!

Puppy's stay with Debbie was wonderful for Puppy and for me. Debbie sent updates regularly and I could tell from the pictures that Puppy was feeling safe and cared for. Knowing that Debbie is home a lot during the day reassures me that Puppy is not lonely or getting into trouble. Debbie is very conveniently located to my home and picking Puppy up after a very long day of traveling home from Europe was simple.
I'm so happy to have found Dog Vacay which lead me to to Debbie.

Debbie was a perfect match for us and our dog, Bonny, who had a lovely time on her stay. Debbie is very caring and conscientious.
Debbie was awesome. Her home is very inviting and her dog, Bella, is wonderful . We came from out of the area and could not have felt more welcome. Her home is in a beautiful area and has a very large yard. Our dog was very happy when we picked her up. She had a great time!

We had a wonderful experience with Debbie and her family. Our two dogs Chess and Maggie were so well cared for during their stay, and the text updates and pictures we received from Debbie really allowed us to be at ease while enjoying the day with our daughter at her college. Bella, Debbie's family dog, is a real sweetie and was very welcoming to both our dogs, one large and one small. Chess and Maggie really enjoyed Bella's company during their stay. We would highly recommend anyone looking for tremendous care of their pets in a loving home and beautiful neighborhood in the Lehigh Valley, to wholeheartedly seek out Debbie's wonderful family. We're extremely happy we did.

We were extremely pleased with how well our 2 girls were cared for. We got daily updated and pictures. They were given plenty of attention. It wasgood to be able to enjoy our time away knowing the furry children were safe and happy.
Phoebe got out of the car, felt comfortable and roamed away from me checking out the lovely property.. so unlike Phoebe, who likes to cling and grab at my leg to be picked up in strange areas .. She goes to women easily so Debbie and her daughters were sure to get in Phoebe's good graces. I felt comfortable leaving her since she even liked their dog. (that is unusual too) Such a great choice for us and our petite little 4 1/2 lb. dog. Thank you Debbie and your whole family.. "A dog's tail doesn't lie -- Phoebe's was wagging"

Great experience
As usual, Debbie was accommodating of our schedule and Taffy was well cared for! Thanks!
We were so happy Debbie could take puppy at the last minute. We feel so secure knowing that Puppy is being cared for by such a gracious and caring family!
Staying at Debbie's is a 5 star experience for my dog! He is so happy there. She and her family take excellent care of him. He loves them all including her dog Bella. She sends updates and photos during his stay, so that we are not worried about him while we are gone. She takes

Staying with Debbie has been a great experience for my dog. He loves the whole family, including her dog. He seems to feel very comfortable there. She sends photos and updates so we are not worried about him while we're away.
My dog Prince loves Debbie and her family! This was the second time he stayed with them and he cannot wait to go again! Debbie was fabulous about sending me updates and pictures. I highly recommend Debbie and so does Prince.
Once again Taffy seemed to have a great stay! Debbie took great care of of our dog! And Debbie is so accommodating with allowing us to drop Taffy off and pick her up according to our schedule! Most highly recommended!
This is the second time I left Puppy with Debbie. I was thrilled with her care and thoughtfulness.
This was a great experience right from the start. Debbie, her family and her dog are wonderful. She mad us feel really comfortable about leaving our 13 yr old Lowchen, who is quite set in his ways. He seems to have had a good time during his stay. She sent us photos and texts which were very reasurring to receive. We hope to be able to repeat this experience .

Debbie and her family were fantastic! She sent me notes and photos of Puppy and since she stays at home, Puppy had all day supervision and then got to play her her daughters. When I picked Puppy up she looked so happy and I have no doubt she had a fun and relaxing time with this family. Debby walked puppy every day with her dog and now I am going to have to get back to that daily routine too, which is great for both of us! Debbie lives very close to me and it is great to be able to know Puppy is close to home. This is sooooo much better than using a kennel. I love it!

We were more than pleased with the care Taffy received from Debbie and her family! We received periodic texts and pictures showing that Taffy was happy and well cared for. Taffy went on walks with the family dog and played in the yard. Originally rescued from an abusive home, Taffy is uncertain around strangers, but Debbie and her family made her feel comfortable and safe! We will most definitely let Taffy stay with Debbie again!
