About Don & Alice

50 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Our names are Don, Alice and Donnie. We are a family who truly loves dogs who we refer to as fur-children. We provide lots of love and belly rubs. Huge fur-children friendly home and secured yard.

We are a loving, Christian family of three adults. Throughout our lifetime we have had the wonderful opportunity to care for many breeds of pups with all kinds of personalities. We do highly consider fur-children to be much more than "just" a dog. To us, they are truly family. They are very intelligent and they are God's gift to those who truly love them and who try to understand them. We have two wonderful boys of our own. Their names are Peanut and Buddy. They are both brothers. They both do really enjoy meeting all kinds of new friends, and we enjoy being able to love on all their new friends. We promise that your fur-child will receive lots of love and affection which includes belly rubs if he/she does not mind getting them.

Our home is very large (approximately 3,000 square feet) and super doggy friendly. Our home has wood/tile floors for cool comfort and our AC is set to 78 degrees during summer months. During the daytime our television is usually tuned into Animal Planet because believe it or not, our boys really do watch this station, and we find it very interesting as well.We do provide filtered water. We provide one treat in the am and one treat during evening television unless you specify otherwise. You are more than welcome to provide your own treats as well as anything else that will add to your fur-child's comfort during his/her stay with us.

As you can tell from looking at our pictures, our yard is very large (approximately 3 acres.) and fully secured with fencing and locked gates. We spend much of our outdoor time in the very large shaded area of our yard. It is in this completely shaded area that your fur-child will enjoy playing with our boys and possibly others of small to medium size. He/she can sniff around all our beautiful and completely safe scenery, chase lizards and squirrels and can even dig to China in the area designated for digging if he/she so desires. If your baby would rather just sit in the house and watch T.V. or sleep the day away, then that will be fine also. You can be sure that he/she will be under constant supervision at all times. INDOOR PLAY IS PERMITTED AND ENCOURAGED.

For the safety of our boys, fur-children in our care and possibly your own fur-child, WE DO REQUIRE a documented copy of up-to-date vaccinations which includes rabies, DHLPP or DAPP, and ABSOLUTLEY MUST INCLUDE A CURRENT BORDETELA VACCINATION. If you do not have these records on hand, you should be able to obtain a copy from your Vet. With your permission, we will be happy to contact your vet for a copy of your pups records.

You will not find more loving & caring pet sitters than Donnie, Don & Alice. I have used them on multiple days to baby sit my chihuahua fur babies Bailey & Princess while contractors were working on our new FL home. My dogs have never been social with other dogs especially my male, Bailey, but after a few visits a miracle happened and they have become best friends with their beautiful boys Buddy & Peanuts, as well as, other fur babies they were baby sitting. You will have peace of mind having Donnie, Don & Alice pet sit your precious fur babies.
My two chihuahuas Princess & Bailey love love love Donnie, Don & Alice. They treat my fur babies like they are their own dogs. Don & Alice G have dog sit my dogs on many occasions and now my dogs have become friendly with other dogs...nothing short of a miracle. I know when I drop my dogs off for the day that my babies will be loved and will be taken care of just as I would. Highly highly recommend Don, Donnie & Alice as they are excellent dog sitters. I am no longer an anxious mom when I drop my babies with Donnie, Don & Alice.
We boarded our dog, Sammie, for 3 nights and we were very pleased with the experience. Donnie texted us with photos and updates each day on how Sammie was doing. The property is well suited for dog boarding, with a large fenced yard, which gives dogs a chance to sniff and explore. We will definitely use this service the next time we need to board Sammie.
Harley had a wonderful time running and playing with the host's pups. The yard is large and safely fenced. He was well cared for and I received welcome texts to show me the fun he was enjoying on his day out! I would use them again as they are a pleasant, caring family. Thanks, Donnie for helping me get all my online paperwork done!
Don & Alice and their son Donnie are a wonderful loving family that treated my two chihuahuas as if they were their own. The pictures Donnie sent put my mind to rest that my dogs were in a very loving home with a wonderful large yard that I know my dogs loved. Taking my dogs to daycare is something that I was apprehensive about but the experience with this loving family was excellent and I will use them again. You will not find a more loving home to take care of our precious babies.
We are so happy to have these wonderful people to care for our dogs when we are gone. They love our dogs and treat them like we do!.
We totally appreciated and welcomed the care and love Don and Alice gave to our dog Sadie. Sadie is a rescue and I know she can be a handful due to her anxieties. They kept me abreast of her activities and sent pictures which I truly appreciated. They are kind, thoughtful and animal loving people, I would never hesitate to place Sadie with them again. If you want TLC for your pet, this is the place to select, great care, belly rubs and a loving home environment!
You will not have to worry when you board your pet with Don, Donnie & Alice. They are a kind and loving family. Their two dogs are very friendly. Appreciated Donnie sending texts and pictures of Charlie. I will definitely use them again.
Our pups love staying with these wonderful, loving folks! Alice, Don and Donnie treat our dogs like we do. They took care of them while we were on a cruise and the dogs had a great time. We did not worry about them being in this beautiful home where they were allowed on the furniture and got lots of petting and activity. The two acre yard is completely fenced. Our dogs were always attended when they went outside and they could roam free and play. We are so happy and blessed to have found them to keep our doggies happy and safe. Will definitely bring the dogs here again !!!!
Don is obviously a very caring individual! We are confident in his and Alice's care.
We feel so blessed to have found Don & Alice and their son Donnie to care for our dogs! We brought them for daycare to get acquainted and it went so well. The dogs were happy in their home and huge, beautiful yard. They are going back for a week starting this weekend.
We left our Westie with Don, Alice and Donnie for two weeks, and Donnie provided us with plenty of pictures and texts letting us know Bentley was getting along great. Bentley loved playing with their two dogs, sleeping with Alice, getting plenty of belly rubs, learning to use the doggie door, digging around in the dirt then rolling in it, and eating their special food because it tasted WAY better than his usual food. As much as I spoil my dog, I honestly believe he would've been fine had we left him there another week instead of bringing him home, LOL! We will definitely use this team next time we go on vacation and I highly recommend them.
We recently moved and our dog wasn't handling it well. We were concerned putting him with a sitter for almost 3 weeks but our fears were quickly alleviated with Don and Alice. Our dog had a wonderful time and was treated like one of their family. We got daily updates from Donnie with lots of pictures and Maxwell always appeared comfortable and relaxed. He had plenty of playmates and lots of room to roam. We will definitely use them again!!!
We could not be happier with our hosts. They were the perfect fit for our Toby. We were on vacation for two weeks. Received several updates daily. Toby received the same loving care as we give him. Very caring and thoughtful. We could relax and enjoy our vacation knowing Toby was in great hands. Very satisfied. Would not hesitate to bring Toby back again.
We have never left our little "Abby" before so this was a new experience for us. It could not have gone better. From the time we met Donnie and Alice at the meet and greet we knew this was the place for us. Their true love for the dogs is amazing. We were provided pictures and updates while we were away and our only concern was that she would not want to go back home with us because she was having such a good time. We will definitely be using them again when we need day care or overnight boarding.
Don was just outstanding, much more than I expected. His pickup and delivery was much appreciated. He took care of my "senior" cocker and kept me updated on a daily basis. His attention to "Tractor" made my vacation much less stressful. Will definitely use him again on my next trip out of town ......
Very happy with this sitter. Sammy our dog likes it also. Received many pictures and updates. Will use again .
Very friendly and our dog immediately responded to them. We were pleased with his care and will use again.
A great home for both Day Care and overnjght Boarding .A nice home and fenced in yard and very close to The Villages..Joel. The Villages Fl
Donnie came and picked my dogs up at the house which was so convenient! He updated me frequently throughout the day with pictures and comments and then dropped them back at the house at the end of the day.
I would recommend them for any pet and have told my friends about them too!
Daisy had a great time. She made her self at home wouldimmediately. She attached herself to Donnie and even slept with him. Serenaded him all nite with her snoring. You could tell this family loves animals. They have two cute small dogs. Taking daisy again next week. I know she in good hands.
I and my wife were totally satisfied with Don, Alice and Donnie Girard! Out of 1 to 5 they were a definite 5! We would use them again in a heartbeat! Our dogs - Lilly and Rudy - were well taken care of !
If you are looking for a home where dogs will feel loved and comfortable you will love Don and Alice. They kept me updated with photos and texts. I'm so happy to have found them. This will change my life knowing my dogs are loved and secure when I am away. I highly recommend them.
