Deb will take care of your pet as if it were her own. I trust her completely and never worry about my dog when he is staying with her. Not only will she make sure your dog is happy, but she has medical background as well and will ensure your dog is safe and healthy. The absolute best!!

Debbie is the best pet sitter we have ever had. When we pull up the driveway my dog gets extremely excited and jumps out of the car and runs right to the gate. When we drop our dog off by Debbie, we have no worries or concerns. Debbie takes the time to get to know your dog. She always makes sure the dogs get along and play well together. Every time my dog comes home he is exhausted and happy from playing all day.

I've had the pleasure of having Deb and her family watch my beloved dog. I don't have children so my dog is my child. Deb and her family treated my dog as if was her own. When I picked him up he didn't want to leave. He had fun and has been sleeping since he came home. I've had several people watch before but have since found his home away from home with Deb. Thank you for everything.

There is only one word to describe Debbie and that is FANTASTIC !!! I don't know what I would do without her. I tell her that all the time.
I first used Debbie two years ago when my husband and I went on vacation and would never leave them with anyone else. I knew from the first time I spoke to her that she was the right person to take care of our dogs. She send pictures and updates while we were away which made all the difference. She is always available when I text her and gets right back to me. They are always very well cared for in her friendly, loving home. Her family is WONDERFUL. My two dogs love her especially my 3 year old Boxer Maggie. She get so excited when she sees Debbie. She loves her huge fenced in yard where she can run and play. It's perfect for a very active Boxer with lots of energy.
She is very professional and knowledgeable and is an amazing dog sitter and trainer. She gets to know each dogs personality and how to handle them. I trust her completely when they are under her care. She truly loves her job. Debbie is the best. I can't say enough great things about her and her family. A real find.
I highly recommend her to anyone everyone for the perfect dog sitter.

Debbie was great. I was very nervous and needed extremely last minute help. She assured me my tiny sensitive dog would be ok. I was happy to receive a nice picture of my curled up on a big blanket taking her nap. I picked her up and she was clean and happy! Unlike our passed experience with another sitter of her coming home very upset and stressed. I will definitely use Debbie again and tell my friends to use her too! Thank you

We worked with Deborah twice, and she is not a very professional sitter. Both times we came to pick up our dog, she was not there and her young children gave us back our small dog. These children didn't know about the care bags we left for our dog (that contained her food, leash, harness, and treats), and gave us a different dog's items.

The second time we left our dog, we believe this sitter fed her the entire container of chicken we had left with her. Our dog does not eat with new sitters, and we had instructed the sitter to give her a tiny bit of chicken in her kibble so that she would eat it up (as she generally does). The sitter fed our 4 lb Maltese an entire container and our dog ended up vomiting for three days and we had to take her to the vet.

Apart from this, her home is also located in a heavily wooded area, and she does not keep an eye on the dogs when outside, so I would strongly recommend against using this sitter.

Buzz spent another fun week of vacation with Deborah and her family. He loves their large yard and playing with the other dogs. I am confident that he is being well cared for while we are away, and we really appreciate that. We will be back again. Thanks!

Heath was so happy with Deborah. Her house and yard are perfectly set up for the dogs that stay there. I would happily send Heath to stay with Deborah many more times.
Another great stay with Deborah for our active lab! She came back home tired and well cared for :)
Thx for watching our guys!
This was Buzz's 3rd stay with Deborah. I feel very comfortable leaving Buzz with Deborah for the week as I am confident that he will be well taken care of while we are away and she knows a lot about dogs. She also has a great fenced in yard that any dog would love. I would highly recommend Deborah.

Awesome doggie vacay!
It was clear to me immediately that Deborah is an animal lover, and my puppy obviously felt the same. I couldn't be more pleased with the loving care she gave my dog during our short vacation. We definitely will be calling on her again.
Coco always has fun and is well cared for when she stays with Deborah. She loves going to play on that absolutely beautiful property and Deborah knows dogs! This stay was no exception. Bonus...Coco is nicely tired out and I get a quiet evening to recover from my time away.

My dog Amber had a great stay with Deborah! Lots of room to run and have fun! Deborah is someone I would leave my dog with again!
OMG I was so worried to leave my 3 month old Buzz when I suddenly had to go to CA but after one phone call I knew it was going to be ok with Debbie, she made it all so easy.

She is so _in control_ that you don't freak out about your dog. And my dog LOVED being with her. He was so happy and worn out (in a great way) still carries himself three days later like he's a big boy who got to run around in the BIG yard with the other fun dog and to be handled by Debbie, who knows what she is doing when it comes to them.

I wish I knew her secret when it comes to training etc. I am sure it is just years of experience, love for animals and confidence. And now this daddy also knows Buzz needs another 2 - 3 walks a day over the 4 -5 he was getting. Gotta get them into that routine.

Buzz will only be staying with Debbie if I have anything to do with it!

And so sorry I screwed up picking him up was late but she came back from her drs appt for me.

Don't mess with anyone else, Debbie is the best - Thank you!

David, Buzter's Daddy

Deborah had an amazing dog friendly spread, was extremely accommodating, and sent my very spoiled pups home stress free and happy. Highly highly recommended!
This is the second time we have left our lab with Deborah. Our experience was excellent, just as our first visit a few weeks prior. We're confident she was well cared for and came home happy and tired :-)
I had a positive experience with DogVacay. Deborah took care of our puppy the week we were away. I'll be calling again! Thank you!
We were so happy with our first dogvacay stay with Deborah. We've recently moved to the area and were anxious to leave our lab for the first time with anyone new, though we picked her up with complete confidence that she had been well cared for and happy! Deborah has a great fenced in yard, and she took the time to get to know our high energy girl with lots of play and fetch. It was so nice to find a place to care for her in a home environment with lots of love, rather than a kennel during a time when she would already be anxious away from her parents. We have already booked for our next weekend trip!

My dog hag pawsome time at Deborah's place. We are going to stay there a lot!
Coco had another great stay with Deborah. She is happy and nicely tired out from playing in that wonderful fenced in property. Nothing nicer than a pooch who is content and well exercised!
Coco had a wonderful stay with Deborah. She's happy and nicely tired out from all the good fun and playtime on Deborah's large and beautiful property. It's dog heaven. Coco made a reservation for another stay, too.
My dogs love staying with Deborah.
Deborah was an excellent host to my two large dogs. I sometime have difficulty finding someone who will take on my dogs because they have a lot of energy and love to play. Deborah didn't have any issues with my dogs and they enjoyed spending the week with her and the other dogs. I returned from a long business trip to two happy pups!!

I would just like to thank Deb for everything! She was a life saver! My (now) husband and I decided to adopt a pup a couple days before our wedding and she came to the rescue! You could tell Hershel was well taken cared of, he was so happy! (and so were we!) We will definitely be coming back to Deb for future doggy-sitting :)

Ozzy had another awesome vacation with Debbie! Debbie is amazing with Ozzy, he loves it there and we can go away with the peace of mind that he is well cared for.
I can't say enough wonderful things about Debbie and her love for dogs. Debbie always makes Ozzy feel at home and I have no worries because I know he is very well taken care of!!
Debbie always takes excellent care of our dog Ozzy! She always makes sure he has a great time! I love the photos and videos she sends us! Ozzy will be going back for some more fun very soon!
Excellent!! We couldn't be happier with Deborah. She is great! It makes us so comfortable knowing our Harlie is safe and happy while we are away.
Thank you again for taking such good care of Joey! He came home happy and tired :)
What a great day my dog had at Deborah's today! Blue @ I were very happy with the stay. He was very tired after spending the day playing. I'm grateful that Deborah was able to take him in on such short notice I'm glad I found her. Can't wait until next time and Blue too.

Our pup had another great stay with Deborah and her family.

Home must seem dull after all the fun our pup had playing with other dogs, both Deborah's and her canine guests.

It's such a relief to be able to take a vacation and know our pup is in the best, most caring hands. We trust Deborah's judgment about all things canine, and we know she's also generous with her affection.

Deborah is flexible with the drop-off and pick-up times and great about staying in touch. She makes the details of planning easy.

If you're reading this review, you're reading the same kinds of positive comments again and again. It's because they're true!

Thank you, Deborah and family. We're grateful to have found you!

Debbie watched my 6 year-old dog Joey overnight over Memorial Day weekend. When I picked him up today he didn't want to leave! He was running around in her huge fenced in yard and having a great time. Debbie gave me text updates and photos so I could see how Joey was doing. She said he loved the other dogs. Joey came home clean and relaxed. Would definitely recommend Debbie to family and friends!!

Debbie has cared for our dog Ozzy numerous times. We just left him for a week and Debbie kept us updated with photos and videos of him playing and having a great time! She even gave him some tennis balls to keep him happy! He will be returning for another weeks vacation with Debbie over the summer. She is the absolute BEST!!

Padfoot had an amazing time and came home tired, but very relaxed and happy!!!! We love it here!
Our pup's stay with Deborah and her family was everything we hoped it would be.

As hard as it was for my husband and me to be separated from our canine companion, we were confident she was in the care of someone who not only loves dogs but also knows so much about them.

Deborah understands each dog's character, personality, quirks, and joys. She's savvy and responsible.

She has a wonderful set-up for them, inside and out.

I knew before we left that we had nothing to worry about. And Deborah was super about patiently staying in touch with me during the 9 days we were traveling. (She happens to be a great communicator, too. She never drops the ball and is quick to respond to messages.)

Really, finding Deborah and her family for those times when we're away has taken the stress out of traveling.

In a word, this was a GREAT vacation for our dog while her people were away from home.

We left Alfie with Deborah over the Christmas period and were so happy with her professionalism and understanding about taking care of him. We were particularly anxious as Alfie has diabetes and we had never left him before. We needed someone who could administer shots and would fully understand what diabetes means for a dog. Deborah was very knowledgable and make us feel comfortable with leaving him there. We had lots of photos and messages, even though she was also sick! Highly recommended.

We are very happy to have found Debbie to watch Jax when we can't take him with us. Her experience provides that extra level of confidence and comfort knowing that he will be taken care of while we are away. Jax is a high energy dog and Debbie's set up is perfect for him - she has a large fenced in area and usually has a couple other dogs there - so Jax has playmates with plenty of room to run and play - which he just loves. We have 'boarded' Jax with Debbie twice now and will likely ask her to watch him again in the future. Monica

Fully fenced large yard and my dog came home happy. My dog is also social, so having other dogs were there when I picked up and dropped off was an extra benefit! This host was organized, polite and caring. Would stay again.
Debbie was wonderful with Otto, he had so much fun playing with the other pups! She was also very communicative with me (crazy mom) and sent pics of Otto having a blast. Debbie is the best!
Deborah and her family were great with Bailey! They were flexible with the pick-up and drop-off times and had a huge fenced-in backyard for the dogs to play in too. Bailey was exhausted when we picked her up from all the fun she had! We would use Deborah again in the future :)

We got a good feeling about Deborah both before & after meeting her, loved her place, and got our dog back clean and happy- we would not hesitate to board Zippy with her again!-----Bruce & Wendy
This was our dogs longest stay with Debbie. He came home very happy and relaxed. When I checked on him, Debbie responded very quickly. She was great, as usual!!!!! Thanks Debbie and family!
buddy had a great time and came back happy. We were very happy with Deborah and would definitely use her again.
Deborah was great! I am a new dog owner, and Deborah not only took care of my dog and provided great care, she also educated me about my dog. Suki, my dog, is more connected to people than to other dogs so Deborah made sure that Suki would not be stressed out by more active dogs during her stay. I plan on sending my dog to her once a week once I go back to work. Not because I need to, but because I think it's a nice experience for my dog.

Debbie was awesome and super accommodating and our puppy, Hugo, loved her! My boyfriend and I were going to Paris for vacation and it was our first time leaving our new puppy with someone else. Time was running out trying to find a dog sitter for him but luckily I found Debbie on DogVacay and I messaged her a week before we left. She immediately replied to my message and we set up a meet-and-greet that afternoon. At first I was a bit nervous because Hugo (although a very sweet and cuddly boy) could sometimes be territorial and has a tendency to bark at new people and dogs. But when we arrived at Debbie's, Hugo felt right at home. He started sniffing around and exploring her awesome backyard. I immediately felt very comfortable leaving Hugo with Debbie, knowing that he has free reign to roam around and that Debbie was always around to watch the dogs, as well as being an experienced dog trainer. Hugo was able to become more social and friendly with other dogs, especially Debbie's dogs, Marley and Skyler :)

Debbie was great keeping us updated while my boyfriend and I were abroad. I was able to text her and ask her on how Hugo is doing and she was great at replying back; she even sent us pictures!

Overall, I think that Debbie is a wonderful dog sitter and you can tell that she is passionate about dogs and loves what she does. As a first-time dog-sitter user, I was super comfortable leaving my puppy with her and I will definitely ask her to watch Hugo the next time we go on vacation.

We left our six month old lab with Debbie for three nights and he did great! He was also just neutered and had to wear an e-collar the whole time he was there. Debbie took excellent care of him! We are so lucky to have found some one so knowledgeable and caring for our dog! We will definitely use Debbie again in the future!

Deborah and Sky were fabulous hosts who have a lovely property perfect for pets! Their backyard is Disneyland for dogs!
Deborah and her family took care of our Yorkie over the 4th of July weekend. It was a great a experience. I met with Deborah in advance so I would feel comfortable leaving my pup with her. She was very flexible and accommodating . She has a real love for the animals and is very knowledgeable about their care. I would definitely recommend her to everyone.

This was the first time we left our 3 dogs while we were on vacation and naturally were a little nervous but Debbie had exceeded our expectations. All of the our dogs stayed in the house becoming part of her family. Our Italian Greyhound is very clingy and needs to be on someone's lap all the time and Debbie has become his mom for a few days. There is a huge fenced-in property allowing dogs a lot of freedom, which was great for our Greyhound, however the time outdoors had to be limited because of the cold.
Additionally Debby was coming to our house daily to take care of our 3 cats and we stayed in touch everyday through text and email. Debbie is truly amazing.

Once again, our dog had a great time and was well cared for!
My dog Penny really enjoyed her stay at Deb's home. She was able to relax in the house or play in the yard, and she made friends with Deb. :) Penny is much more comfortable when she's around people, so Deb's house is perfect for her. Penny was very happy and still wagging her tail when I picked her up two days later.

It was great. Our dog stayed with Debbie for 5 days/nights. The dog loved Debbie, and when we were dropping her off for stay, she run to Debbie without even saying good bye to us.  When I texted to check how our dog was doing, Debbie was replying immediately and sending us pictures of our dog playing. It was really nice and we felt comfortable that left our pup with her. Debbie has a big fenced back yard, where dogs can play. We met her own dog, who is extremely friendly and laid back. We are very happy with this experience and will be leaving our pup with Debbie when we go away next time.

I had never used dogvacay before. What a great experience. I sent an inquiry and heard back quickly. We set up a meet and greet and right away I knew it would be great for my dog. Debbie was very flexible and easy to deal with. My dog came home happy and relaxed from his stay. We will be using Debbie again and would recommend her highly!
