About Debbie

21 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, My name is Debbie. I'm currently owned by Cocoa, a chocolate Lab. I've had as many as four dogs at a time, but the other three have crossed the Rainbow Bridge as teenagers. I got my first very own fur kid in 1995.
I work at home and am looking for dogs to come over to play or just hang out. Of course, they can stay overnight!
The only hitch is that the dogs must get along with Cocoa. He's an old guy and doesn't like pups in his face. He likes his own space. Older dogs are a great match!
Cocoa has free roam of the house and your pup can do the same.
Our home is only one level, but we have a couple of steps to get onto the porch and into the house and onto the back porch.
Because I work from home, I can let the dogs out at regular intervals. I might go out for a date at night, and on Wednesday nights I have dinner with my parents. I'm not usually gone more than five hours.
We have a secure, fenced-in back yard with a big garden and lots of places to sniff, check pee-mail/leave pee-mail and just hang out. I will probably add a small pool in the summer.
I will make sure to text you photos during your fur kid's stay. Yes, they will miss you, but you probably miss them more. It only takes them a few hours to get comfortable here.
I give pawrents a photo keepsake after their first visit as a thank you for choosing us.

Debbie was very nice and accommodating. I was scheduled to pick up Taylor Sunday afternoon but I got home a bit earlier than expected Saturday night and Debbie was very gracious in allowing me to come over to pick up Taylor. Would definitely recommend to anyone who needs a great pet sitter.
We are so happy that we found Debbie! We are new to the Wichita area and had a difficult time finding someone that we could trust to watch our three small dogs. It was next to impossible to leave town for long weekends. We tried local kennels, but they didn't seem to be a good fit for our small dogs and their posh lifelstyles. :)

As soon as we booked with Debbie, she was communicating with us. She immediately put my mind to ease. The morning we dropped our dogs off was completely stress-free. There was no chaos or waiting in line to check. There were no fear tremors from the dogs or tears from me. It was just easy, calm, and welcoming.

Debbie communicated with us frequently during the Vacay. She sent pictures to show that they were settling in, and she answered all of my texts within minutes.

The best part was when we picked up our dogs, they were in the exact same, calm frame-of-mind that they are in when we are at home. The car ride home was not stressful and we didn't spend a week trying to get them back into a routine.

This was, by far, the best experience we've ever had with a dog sitter. And to top it all off, we got the sweetest "thank you" gift! I feel like we should be the ones giving Debbie and Cocoa gifts. Even if we could give 10 stars in this review... that wouldn't be enough!

On a final note... Cocoa is SO sweet. He is a natural pack leader and his calm demeanor sets the perfect tone for other dogs.
Debbie did an awesome job taking care of Tank and making him feel safe and happy. Knowing Tank was in a home environment made our trip that much more fun and stress free. I would highly recommend her!
Buddy absolutely loved his stay with you and Cocoa. He is looking forward to coming back for another visit. The quality of his care was never a concern while I was away - and that makes my vacation good too! Debbie, you are not only a wonderful and caring 'dog sitter', but a truly delightful person to meet. We look forward to seeing you again.
WE felt comfortable leaving our dog with Debbie. I think she might have spoiled him a little.
From setting up the meet and greet to the day we picked up our two was an easy, no problem stay with Debbie. Her home is obviously a pet friendly place. My dogs were treated like royalty. She sent text with pictures and even sent home a gift bag for US!! I won't tell you what was in it, but it showed she spent time with our dogs and really is an animal lover. He big boy Cocoa got along really well with our dogs, and seemed like he enjoyed having the dogs there. Her price is very fair for the effort she puts into the animals. I guess my boxer even got to sleep with Debbie! I would and will use Debbie in the future.
This was the best experience of boarding/dog sitting I've ever had. I have never felt so comftorable leaving my best friend in anyone's hands before. I had to leave town for a last second conference, I was skeptical using this app. After dropping of my dog I felt real good about it, and throughout her stay I received messages and pics. After I picked up my dog she was extremely sad leaving. I will always use Debbie when I leave town. Nice place, nice back yard, and a vet compassionate/sweet lady.
Debbie was there for a short notice booking for my two fur babies, and she was great and treated them like her own! I also love the fact that she has a lab as well, I think that made my sayde more comfortable. Also love the gift she made for them!!! Will book again.
Deb was a life saver! She took super care of our dog child! He seemed to enjoy his dog vacay and will likely visit again in the future. She truly enjoyed our high maintenance friend, and really does love dogs. We also appreciated his personalized souvenir !
We could not have found a better dog sitter for our beloved Maggie even if we had tried. Debbie was absolutely perfect in how she interacted with us and our dog. We will definitely be taking Maggie back to her when we need a sitter again!! She receives a 6 star rating by us :)
Debbie's love for animals certainly shows from the first meet and greet time to the end of a long stay. I felt comfortable leaving my dog with her and that meant a lot to me. Without question I would book another Dog Vacay with her. What a nice surprise, I received a very special gift that had pictures of my dog and her stay while at her home. Thanks again Debbie for a wonderful experience!
