About Theresa

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
love my fur babies and would like to provide a safe, friendly, loving environment for your special petite pet. I do prefer small dogs as I have two very friendly petite dogs for play time. My girls like to go on walks, play fetch the ball and chase each other around the yard. I grew up with a house full of pets. I was fortunate to have two beautiful little girls for 15 years respectively. Now I have two more beautiful rescue girls. Halo is a 10 lb Papillion and Chutney is a a 9 lb Chorky. They are very friendly and welcome pets into their home with open paws.

I am very flexible with early morning drop offs, however, 8 p.m is the latest time for pick up. If you are going to be later than 8 p.m. you will need to make reservations for the next day. Thank you for your consideration.

( ****Must provide a copy of your pets current vaccinations.******) Please provide ETA's on arrival and departure. Due to scheduling there will be a late fee in addition to the daily rate for pets not picked up on scheduled/reserved date of departure.

Brooke really seemed to enjoy her day at Theresa's house. Although I'm a nervous dog mom, Theresa did much to calm my fears about leaving Brooke this first time. She had plans to introduce the dogs to each other slowing to avoid any negative first impressions. And she sent me photos and text messages throughout the day. Brooke will definitely be going back next week for more fun doggie playtime.
Theresa was wonderful! She has a great setup for smaller dogs.
Theresa was so sweet with our precious baby girl, Abbey - a French bulldog. She sent us updates by text while we were out of town, and even pictures as well. She totally understands how much our fur baby means to us and I feel that Abbey was very well taken care of. Theresa has a wonderful, clean and safe home and fenced yard for the doggies. Our Abbey felt comfortable right from the start and Happy when we picked her up. I will not hesitate to call on Theresa again and I know Abbey would love it too.
She took my two yorkies, one 14 yrs and a one yr. Extremely good with all ages. Sadie the one yr old had seperation issues that Theresa dealt with and Sadie was her friend when I returned. Great experience for my gals.
We had a wonderful time with Theresa. However, my dogs were just a little jealous of each other and poor Theresa had to separate them almost their entire stay. This seemed to be out of the normal for our boys. I am sure jealousy was an issue. We are working on behavior issues with our boys now and they are doing a whole lot better. Thank-you Theresa for loving on our boys.
Theresa was wonderful. The whole process , was easy.. Today was our first visit, and she made our puppy Maggie, feel right at home.. We loved having this family type of atmosphere.. She even texted pics of Maggie playing with the other dogs...

I look forward to our next time, and I know Maggie does, too..

Thank you...

Jack loved his time!
Theresa and her pack are great with my little fur ball. She is very good at communication before, during and at the end of my pets stay. She takes and sends pics daily, so I don't miss my fur baby too much...and I KNOW she's treating my pup well because my pup is picky about people, but she loves Ms Theresa!
she texted pics of susie daily who was always happy
Truly the BEST!
As always theresa was awesome. Pick up drop was easy and dogs seem relaxed when we picked them up and happy to see her when we drop them off
We love Theresa! She is wonderful, professional, punctual, kind, caring...just everything you would want in a dog sitter. We have booked with her several times!
Theresa took excellent care of our special needs dog. We are so grateful. We will most definitely use her services again and we highly recommend her. Her home and yard are set up perfectly to care for dogs and very clean and well kept. Thank you Theresa!
The Best Doggy-sitter Ever!
Theresa was fantastic! She sent us updates throughout the weekend with photos! It was nice to be able to board our dog in a home where she could be free and play as opposed to a kennel where she would be caged all weekend. We would definitely take our dog here again!
Theresa was great! She sent me text messages with pictures of my dogs while I was gone to let me know that they were okay. I think the dogs had a good time too with her dogs. I like that she only has little dogs.
Cookie, our 15 year old chihuahua, stayed with Theresa while we were vacationing in the Destin/Seagrove area. We received 2 texts per day with pictures and an update about Cookie. We felt very comfortable with Theresa. Her house is a perfect set up for dogs and she obviously loves and understands little dogs. Cookie wasn't the most gracious houseguest and was not going potty in the yard the first few days. Theresa didn't bat an eye at our naughty girl. Theresa was also very understanding and flexible with our arrival times. We were late each time because of traffic and just being new to the area. She understood our tourist ways. We will definitely recommend Theresa and use her again if we are staying in the area!
Always fantastic! So great with my Yorkie babies! They love going over to Theresa's! I can relax and do whatever I need to do knowing that my babies are being loved and cared for.
Theresa is always so welcoming. Very good host, great backyard!
It was such peace of mind to know that Pickles was with Theresa! I went into it blind, never having met Theresa, used the site before, or even had a home pet-stay for Pickles. Amazing first experience! Theresa made me feel comfortable right away, and more importantly made Pickles feel comfortable. She is obviously very experienced, and kept in great contact with me with photos and updates of Pickles. She has a clean, comfortable, safe, and beautiful space for the doggies, and I never once worried about Pickles . . for the first time EVER while being away from her.
Theresa has boarded our mini Schnauzer at her home several times. We are very pleased with her services. We get pics most every day and our Nikki seems to get along with Theresa's dogs just fine. We highly recommend her.
Very easy and Theresa is a great host. Max loves the backyard run!
Maxzie always does great here!
Theresa A, Has helped my boy be his social, He loves going to day care to play with he and her wonderful puppy's. Theresa A is GREAT!!! Would not trust my dog with anyone else.
Theresa was an amazing sitter for our 4 month old puppy. This was Harvey's first time away from home so we were nervous about how he would handle it and how taxing he would be on a sitter. We shouldn't have worried... Harvey is a handful, but Theresa was so understanding and caring. She sent us texts with pictures of Harvey a couple times a day and was always available for updates about how he was doing. When we picked Harvey up he was happy, healthy, and more confident. We will definitely be rescheduling with Theresa the next time we need a puppy sitter!
Theresas amazing and excited to see our dogs again. We love how flexible she is with our drop off and pick up times. The dogs seemed totally comfortable there with her and her two sweet dogs. Its such a relief to have a reliable, caring, consistent dog sitter in our life, she is priceless!!!
There are not enough starts to describe Theresa's services. She really really loves animals, she was sending us photos and kind words everyday, she is professional and caring, I would recommend her to anybody that loves their animal and want someone outstanding to take care of them while they are away. Thank you very much Theresa!
Theresa was wonderful with Willie and took very good care of him. One gets the sense Theresa really loves caring for our pets. She keeps an immaculate house and has a back yard totally dedicated to pups and their exercise.
I don't believe you can go wrong choosing Theresa!
Molly enjoyed her playtime with Theresa's dogs, and the chew stick treats. She is comfortable at Theresa's and always eats her dinner when she is staying there which is a good sign that she is happy!
We are repeat customers and know that Theresa cares about dogs and pays attention to them and their needs while in her care.
Highly recommend Theresa. Excellent personalized service. My Emily was a happy camper.
I cannot thank Theresa enough for the excellent care she took of Spencer and Ollie. We were traveling in the area and needed a sitter for a few days. We don't leave Spencer and Ollie often, so it can be a bit traumatic for them to be dropped off with a stranger. Theresa treated them with lots of love and kept us informed with texts and photos so we didn't have to worry. We could tell from communication and then when meeting her that she really is a dog lover and we were very comfortable with the environment in her home. When we arrived to pick them up, although they were very happy to see us, it was obvious they had bonded with Theresa and her dogs. We were very happy to see that! I would highly recommend Theresa as a Dog Vacay sitter. I really don't think you can go wrong leaving your babies with her.
Our doggies just LOVE Theresa! They came home happy and loved. Thank-you Theresa, Love Golly and Zerxy Lick, lick, slobber, slobber
Theresa, She is the a wonderful dog sitter for small dogs, I can't say enough great things about her. She is very great dog sitter I would highly recommend if your panning a trip to call her.
Theresa was very professional and customer friendly. I highly recommend her for others as well.
Theresa is the best small dog specialist! She is attentive and truly cares for the dogs left in her care. We highly recommend her for future appointments. She is truly the best!!! Larry R.
Theresa is the absolute best when it comes to dog sitting. She really pays attention to each dog and makes sure everyone in her care is comfortable. She sends pictures and updates everyday and really went out of her way to make my dogs feel at home. Her house is doggy heaven!
Theresa is an awesome host and her 2 pups are just as friendly as can be. We don't leave our dog with anyone else. I can't leave enough positive reviews.
Awesome, Awesome, Awesome! Theresa is caring, sweet, and attentive to the dogs. Love her!
Theresa is the BEST!!! She made our vacation stress free knowing our fur babies were in great care! She kept us updated and sent us pictures :D the whole experience was wonderful and I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants excellent, outstanding care! We will definitely be planning another trip and some doggie daycare days! Thank you so much Theresa!
Thank you so much for taking such wonderful care of our Trixie. The daily text updates and pictures ensured us that she was so well cared for each and every day. It really allowed us to relax and not worry about her while we were on vacation. The next time we are in need of a pet sitter, we will definitely call on Theresa again!
Molly had a fun day playing outside with Theresa's dogs. She came home and has been resting up ever since!
Theresa, is absolutely amazing. She responded to our meet and greet request before boarding. Her house was immaculate and welcoming for our pet. We boarded our Miniature Pinscher with her for two days and she provided care for our pet with the love and care she provided to her own dogs. We were impressed to say the least! Our dog was well taken care of, and we could tell our dog enjoyed her stay. We will use Theresa on our next trip for sure!!!
Theresa, thanks for bearing with Molly while she got better acquainted with you, Halo and Chutney on her first extended stay away from home. I know it took her a few days to warm up and feel comfortable, and you worked hard helping her get there. The socialization with your sweet dogs helped Molly and she came home happy! As we left your house I couldn't help but notice Molly jumping up on you wagging her tail!
Theresa's dogs Halo and Chutney helped Molly, my 2 year old Shih Tzu, with her socialization skills and she came home from Theresa's a very happy dog.
Theresa does an awesome job with Kaylee and Newton. This is the second time she has taken them and does a great job keeping us informed with texts and pictures. We highly recommend Theresa.
Theresa did well keeping up with our rambunctious puppy. She has a nice clean fenced yard for lots of play! Jasper was happy!
Our girls were in good hands. We had continual updates and pictures! We will take them back again!
We will definitely take our girls back to Theresa! She was very patient with them and sent us texts/pic updates throughout each day! They had so much chasing squirrels in her back yard they were a little sad when we brought them home!!
Theresa is truly a God-send! We typically take our dog -- Bones -- everywhere with us, but could not do so on our latest trip. She had the best time with Theresa and her dogs Halo and Chutney. Halo and Chutney are sweet as can be and welcomed Bones right away. Theresa is a kind and caring woman, and it shows. She gave Bones so much love, playtime, and personal attention. She really helped Bones to settle in the first night when she was upset with separation anxiety. She even took pictures every day and sent them to us with updates via text and email. She has a great yard for the dogs to run around. Her house is also immaculately clean -- a stark contrast to some of the dog boarding facilities out there that smell like dogs or animal urine. Her home is just wonderful, and she is truly devoted to caring for the animals. We feel truly lucky that she opened her home to our little Bones during our time away. We will definitely be booking with her again in the future.
I just can't say enough good things about Theresa! She is a true dog lover. She took excellent care of my older dog and everything went smoothly. She offers a clean, safe, and loving environment. Her dogs are very friendly and well behaved and they got along fine with my dog. I highly recommend her.
Theresa did an awesome job with our babies. She sent plenty of updates and pictures every day and let them adjust at their own pace. She was understanding about Kaylee's whining and helped Newton get up on the couch since he has a sore leg. We will definitely leave them with Theresa when we go out of town again.
Theresa was an awesome host for our little man "Chuck Norris". I was able to bring him by her home and do a meet-n-greet with the other pups in her home. Theresa sent us emails and text messages of our dog's adventures in the yard while we were gone as well. Anyone in the Niceville area would be crazy if they did not trust their dog with her.

- Kennels are for prisoners, not dogs!
Great experience! Our dogs seemed to be very well taken care of.
Theresa was wonderful!!! This was the first time we did not take Lilly with us. I thought Theresa sounded great. My husband and I dropped her off with Theresa, and right away, we knew Lilly would be very happy with her and the other 3 little dogs at her house.

We left Lillyt for 2 nights and Theresa let Lilly sleep with her on her bed! She sent us updates with pictures! Theresa was the perfect person to leave Lilly with! We will definately use her again and would recommend her highly!
Thank you Theresa!

Theresa was wonderful, we are so glad we found her. Molly loved staying with her and she made herself right at home. We felt very confident that she was in good hands while we were on vacation. We will definitely be calling on her again for our next vacation.
Theresa was so friendly and worked with me and our ever changing plans. Worked us in on a short notice. My 1st time using this type of service and was a little nervous leaving my baby with a stranger. Theresa's house was clean and safe. Had a few lovely dogs of her own and they immediately started to play with Lil Bit. In just a matter if moments Lil Bit was off with them playing and didn't even notice me leave. Her house had a fenced back yard which was great. She was waiting at the door for us when we arrived for pick up and the entire process was simple and fast. Very pleased!
Theresa was extremely patient and loving with our 13 year old English Bulldog. She stayed up with him for 24 hours on the first day because he was missing us. She kept in contact via text and sent pictures. I highly recommend Theresa for your pet sitter! She has a lovely home with a great back yard!
An absolutely impeccable experience. This was our first time away from Bella since she was six weeks old, so it was important to us that she have a safe, enjoyable experience. This is exactly what happened. Theresa was flexible. communicative, kind, and attuned to our little one year old Bella. She sent us daily pictures of our puppy and updates on how she was doing. For small dogs, Theresa is the best. Thank you, Theresa for everything, including bathing Bella. We'll be sure to let our neighbors know about you.
Thanks to Theresa, Ellie had as much fun as we did on our vacation. Her backyard was perfect for Ellie to chase squirrels. We received frequent pictures of Ellie having fun and she made friends with Theresa's own dogs.
Theresa's in a perfect location for those traveling to the Destin area to drop their dog
Thank you!
Theresa was absolutely wonderful! This was our first time using this site and we were a little nervous. Theresa sent us many updates and pictures and took great care of Roxy! Thank you, Theresa!
This was our first time using this service for our 5 year old ShihTzu. We were very pleased upon arrival. Clean home, dog friendly, nice fenced in backyard, and very nice pet owner. Theresa sent us updates through the portal with pictures and texted me once a day letting me know that our dog had adjusted quickly and was getting along well with her 2 small dogs. She also let them all sleep together in her bedroom. I was so pleased and would highly recommend this home (in Niceville, FL). I plan on using her when I am vacationing later this year so Max can visit his new friends again! Thank you Theresa for the TLC!
