About Debra

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Debra and I'm a life-long dog owner. I live on Siesta Key on a quiet road with beautiful sidewalks surrounding my block perfect for leisurely doggie walks.

My home is great if you live on the Key and going on holiday or you are on vacation here with your dog and want them to have a nice place to romp while you are on a day out excursion. Whatever your preferences treats/toys/meals, I will follow to keep your dog on his/her routine.

I love to take dogs for daycare or overnight, and even to vet visits if you have trouble getting out yourself. I have three dogs in my home, all very friendly and love meeting new friends for play and walks. I welcome any dog - large or small - that enjoys playing in a pack.

I work from home so dogs are never left on their own. All dogs have the run of my dog-friendly home, even being allowed to lounge on couches and beds. We have thoroughly dog-proofed every room so it is safe for even the most curious.

I have a 2400 sq. ft. 3 bedroom home on Siesta Key with a large fenced back yard. Although I allow the dogs to go in and out - the dogs are never left unattended, even while playing outside.

I have three dogs - two very gregarious Brussel Griffons that I found in Wales while living in the UK. Pinkerton is my shadow and loves to help me around the house. Oobatz is my protector and always on the ready to introduce himself to passerby dogs. He can wait quietly for hours for a squirrel in a tree to make a move and loves to have other dogs help him on his hunts. Molly is our rescue dog and she's a complete love, very gentle and always watching for geckos. All three dogs enjoy meeting new dogs on our morning and evening walks and especially love playing in groups at home or the park.

I host no more than two unrelated dogs at any time to keep our doggie play days and slumber parties small. While I can accept any breed, all dogs must have a friendly temperament and be socialized with other dogs.

I am happy to visit your dog at your holiday home if you prefer to be sure your dog(s) has someone checking on them for feeding and play.

I can send photos and videos of your dog to send you throughout the day by text or email so you can keep up on our activities and stay connected.

I do Dog Vacay part time and for my love of dogs. I can't wait to meet you and your dog. Please propose a meet and greet for introductions!!

Horrible experience. Don't know what happened while my dog was there and will probably never know. We called Debra to ask and also contacted DogVacay. No satisfactory response
My dog came home traumatized, hiding and shaking in a corner. Wouldn't come near us. Refused to eat. That is so unlike him. He is a loveable little pug who loves his food
We've used DogVacay before this and other agencies and have never had anything like this happen before
Debra and Howard were the perfect hosts for our darling older westies, Jazz and Bella. I received daily greetings and the occasional photo and when we picked them up after a week they were totally calm and happy. Debra's home was puppy proofed and we received one pic of Jazzy sitting on the couch with his new best friend, Howard.

Thank you both for treating our pups with TLC. If we find ourselves in your area again, we will definitely be in touch.
Debra did great! Everything was spot-on. Debra even cooks daily for her dogs and Coco, so he had what he normally has with us.When we arrived to pick him up, she had freshly shampoo him. It can't get better than that!
