I truly have the animals' best interests at heart. I cater to the needs of small adult & senior dogs under 25 lbs., as their size and needs are better matched to my home. Since my dog goes where I go, I do not provide care for cats, as that would not make the canines or felines very happy.
*Before agreeing to care for a dog, I need to know that he or she is not dog-aggressive and is up to date on vaccinations, fecal/heartworm tests for parasites, and flea/worm prevention control. My dog is always kept up to date with Rabies, DHP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza and Parvovirus), & Bortadella vaccines, Fecal and Heartworm tests for parasites, and Flea and Worm prevention treatment. So, I like to ensure the dogs we care for have the same level of care from their vet to prevent contagious illnesses. Also, dogs I care for need to be spayed/neutered, house trained, and willing to walk on leash to take care of business. Since safety and well-being is of utmost importance, I am unable to provide care for any dog-aggressive or leash-reactive dogs.
As a host, I will give your dog the same special attention that I give my dog. Your dog would benefit from constant human and canine companionship. This is my 24 hour x 7 day a week focus and passion, where dogs get all the attention. Many guest canines who previously had separation anxiety elsewhere Love our visits because they have the security of constant companionship and they become very relaxed and comfortable, and sometimes they're hesitant to part ways when the vacation is over.
Many clients/pet-parents have chosen to have me care for their pet at their home, which offers many benefits in that the dog stays, eats, walks, plays, cuddles, and sleeps in their home environment. We agree upon the daily routine, including the walking route and duration. We can agree whether you prefer multiple daily visits or stay-over.
I take my dog everywhere and do not leave my dog home alone. Your dog would enjoy at least 3-4, very likely more, leashed walks per day, exercise, supervised play (my dog generously shares), and plenty of loving attention. There are no kids, so nothing is off limits in my home, a single-level condominium. I have wood and tile floors throughout to maintain a clean and healthy home environment. I ensure that each canine benefits from amazing attention.
There are plenty of safe and beautiful walking paths with sidewalks where I live. If the vacationing dog's family approves, we may have an outing to nearby Fashion Island, Newport Beach, Newport Coast, or Corona del Mar. If your dog may need a bath, I'll take them to a local groomer for complete services. I have cared for puppies, adults, and seniors, including giving extra special attention for their dietary, hygiene, and medical needs.
I have a digital camera, laptop, and Skype, so I can send you regular updates with photos or coordinate real-time interaction with your furry family member, depending on your schedule. This way, you can be completely comfortable while I am caring for your furry friend.
Since I pride myself on providing very personalized care and 1-on-1 attention, please understand for that reason I no longer book months in advance. I will gladly note any tentative dates in my master calendar, but I only book on the system for the current month.
Below are a few recent testimonials that my clients wrote:
If the top rating is a 10, Deb is a 20. She offers so much kind, loving care to my two bichons. For the first time ever I can leave my dogs and have absolutely superior care. Also in addition, she has a darling Jack Russell, who is calm and loving. They are a very winning combination for the most professional, loving, responsible dog care that a person could want. When we are going to Deb's for either an overnight, being gone a week, or just a play date with her darling Louis.....my Pearl and Ruby are so excited they can hardly contain themselves. I can tell by the way my dogs behave when I am walking out the door and leaving them behind.....they are just fine with the situation. Deb also sends pictures with narrative during the time that I am gone. Thank you God for this very loving lady!
This woman who cares for my little bichons has let me be able to enjoy some retirement traveling while still knowing that my little Pearl and Ruby are in the most loving hands. She is such a protector, as today it is very hot, 93 deg, for Newport Beach, that is unusual. But she already sent me an email telling me that she would definitely make sure that their little paws stayed in the grass, and not on the pavement, while taking walks today. The pavement would reach temperatures over 100 deg in this heat. I know that she will keep lots of water for them as well as making sure that they do not do anything dangerous, or eat anything that they should not while walking.
Pearl has an especially hard time jumping as she is over 10 years old and has such short legs. Deb makes sure that she does to try to jump up on areas that she should not be jumping on. She has stairs for the dogs to use for climbing up to the level of the big chair that they like to sit on.

I left my little shih-tzu with the owner Deb in March for five days while I went on my cruise. He was taken care of very well! Deb sent me pictures to show how happy he was. She was precise in taking down his personal information and dietary requests. I could tell when I picked up my dog that he had received a lot of TLC. I recommend Paws Amore for your dog too!
Deb is truly amazing. We have boarded our dog a number of times with other boarders either in home or large facility, we have never felt like we were leaving our dog in good hands until now. Deb took such good care of our dog, Shay, on the two trips we have been on, we won't leave our dog with anyone else! She gets to go on numerous walks throughout the day. Gets personal love and attention, likes playing with Deb’s dog Louie, and is genuinely excited when we drive up to Deb’s home! The only downside may be our dog misses Deb when we pick her up to take her home ;) We can wholeheartedly recommend Deb to watch your dog!
Deb is a very caring dog lover and personal pal for my dog. Paisley can't wait to see her and her dog Louie each time we meet. If you are looking for super love and care for your pet, look no further! Paws Amore is clean, smells great and is in a lovely area for walks and great nature too. My pup loves the many walks she gets and all the super personal attention.
I'm so happy to have found Paws Amore. Thank you Deb for all you do!
