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!!

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!
Debra is amazing :) I will leave my doggie only with her next time :) Thank you Debra !
Joey found a home away from home with his stay with Debra. She was so welcoming and accommodating for Joey and his little quirks. We could not have found a better care giver for Joey. Thanks again, Debra!
Debra was very sweet and knew so much about dog psychology and making Axel feel comfortable with staying in a strange place and getting along with her two dogs. She took things slowly at first and didn't overwhelm him with anything by just letting him meet one of her dogs at a time and encouraging him to explore on his own. when we picked him up, he was in the best shape he's ever been after boarding him.
We definitely would use her again!

We have just moved to Sarasota and this is the first time we had to leave our dog Blini with a sitter. We were so lucky to find someone like Debra (and Howard too) who lives so close to us on Siesta Key. They have three small dogs, and she was very careful to introduce them to ours slowly so that our dog, who can be a little slow to adjust to new situations, wouldn't feel overwhelmed by them. They give all their dogs two long walks a day, which was great for our energetic dog also. Blini had a great Christmas weekend at Debra's place while we went to Miami. Thanks Debra and Howard and your three dogs!
