About Deb

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
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 I have a dog who 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 aggressive and 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 at my home need to be spayed/neutered, house trained and willing to walk on leash to take care of business.

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 visiting here because they have the security of constant companionship and they become very relaxed and comfortable, and sometimes they're hesitant to leave when the vacation is over.

Many of my 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 3-4, possibly more, leashed walks per day, exercise, supervised play (my dog generously shares), and plenty of loving attention, just like mine. 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!
Sincerely,
Denise

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!

Deb is wonderful Batman enjoys going with her at drop off, which makes me feel good. One of the reasons I chose Deb was because she asked about vaccinations, which most don't. This was important to me seeing my dog got sick from a daycare once.
She is flexible with drop off and pick up times and her dog Louie is always there to greet us.

Finding Deb when we moved cross-country was a godsend. She's amazingly in-tune with furry friends, including my sweet senior dog who was forced to undergo a lot of adjustment. And Deb's always been extremely accommodating to us, caring for my girl during very busy times.

Deb was amazing to both our dogs, especially since this was the first time we used a sitter outside of our home. She is a true professional and we appreciated the daily updates.
Deb is a great caretaker of fur kids! We were going out of the country for an extended trip & have no family/friends in the area who could watch our dog so we were very apprehensive about leaving her anywhere but after being referred to Deb by a friend who had used her we did an interview with she & her dog where she took copious notes & we entrusted our girl to her. She sent an update by email with pics every day & we would recommend her to anyone. Be organized & let her know as many specifics as you can about your dog & their behavior/preferences & you can leave them in good hands. I provided her with a written document detailing the specifics we had discussed in the interview just because we were not easily reachable.

This was our first experience with DogVacay and it was terrific! Deb was wonderful keeping Scout for us while we stayed with friends for 2 nights over a holiday weekend. The process was easy and Deb was superb to work with! She was responsive from beginning to end and kept us up to date on how our baby was doing and even sent pictures non-stop while she had him! THANK YOU for a great experience! We would use Deb again, in a heartbeat!

Deb is amazing! She's been watching our two dogs with daycare or dog walks pretty much every weekday for the past few weeks. Deb is detailed oriented, and makes sure their needs are addressed. She provides our pups with lots of tlc and photos and updates for the humans. We're really happy to have found a long term solution and would definitely recommend her!

Deb has been providing daycare for our two dogs, and it's been nothing but a positive experience. She is caring and most important to us, trustworthy. She cares deeply about our dogs' wellbeing and makes sure they adjust well to a new environment, especially for one of our dogs who gets anxious easily.

Thanks Deb for taking care of my puppy girl:)) Sorry you didn't think it worked out:((.
Deb sent pics twice a day, so I could see my girl was doing just fine on her Dog Vacay. We moved to town only a few months prior, so it was our first experience with a new sitter. Will definitely ask to Vacay with Deb again.
Deb was fantastic with our dog. Stella is very nervous and doesn't like any changes. Deb was very calm with her, making her feel at home and comfortable. Even Louie, the host dog, was warm and inviting with Stella, giving her space when she needed it. Deb was flexible with the drop off and pickup times and even brought Stella back to our house since we arrived home so late. I will definitely use Deb again. Great service, friendly, and reliable! Thank you Deb and Louie!

Deb was great! Her and Louie took great care of Melo during our 3-day trip away and we received several updates on how he was doing. She clearly has a love for dogs and passion for what she does and we will look forward to leaving Melo with her again in the future.

Thanks Deb and Louie!

Deb seemed to do a Great job to entertain and keep our KC happy and entertained while we were on vacation. She walked her and sent us lots of pictures which was very comforting. This was the first time we had used Deb but will most likely book her again.

Deb was great- very professional and accommodating. She had a nice place to walk our dog with lots of greenery. She also sent lots of photos of our pup in good spirits and in good hands. We really appreciated the 24hr supervision and the comfort of her competence and compassion in taking care of dogs. Definitely would recommend her.

This was my first time using Deb and was very pleased with the care and attention she gave to Cody's two day stay. He came home very happy and tired. What else could a Jack Russell ask for. Way too much fun!! Tim in Irvine
Deb clearly is passionate and loves dogs. She was very meticulous and careful in her notes beforehand with our dog. He is nine years old now and has cataracts so definitely needs extra care. However, our furry son was not a match for her and vice versa. Though, we did have a meet and greet and explained his situation and interactions to her. We expected as other hosts that we have used in the past to have updates (even one) about his stay. Sadly, we received two pictures but would have loved some immediate feedback because clearly it was not a great fit and would have wanted to know how our little loved one was doing(perhaps having our emergency contact come get him ASAP). In addition, Deb used pee pads that was not disclosed to us so our dog didn't do well with that situation. Also, Deb let us know that our dog "took over" others beds and again it was not communicated to us the protocol of what our dog should have had for his stay(we gave him his crate but she made it seem during meet and greet that dogs were allowed to lay around wherever). Lastly, our dog's harness was put on incorrectly and left us feeling like the care is not what we had paid for. I just wanted to be honest as if this was our first dog vacay experience, I would not be inclined to use the site again.
