About Deanna:

We have two smaller dogs in our home now. They are very friendly. We also have two children (15) who love to interact with dogs and take them for walks.
Your dog will have plenty of love and attention while staying at our home.

We live on a quiet street that is full of children and other dogs. The only people driving around here live here.

About this sitter:
We are a very active and loving family and treat your pet the same way we treat our pets. Your fur baby can hang out on our furniture and sleep in our beds, if that is what you allow at your home. We don't want to start any bad habits, so if you will be clear on the rules at your home, we will make sure they are followed in our home. Our goal is to make your trip less stressful by giving your fur baby a safe and comfortable place to stay on their "stay-cation".

I work from home and am home most of the time. If I need to leave, the dogs go in their crates. We did allow one little guy to stay out of his crate and he did some damage to our home. If you are set on not placing your dog in a crate, we will agree to leave him outside in our fenced yard.

Why I love dog sitting
Everyone in my family has been dog lovers their whole lives. We have always had dogs. We prefer to have more than one dog at a time, so they keep each other company. I have owned a variety of sizes and temperments over the years, so I am no stranger to the shy one, or the one that can have a bad moment. We all have those days.

Meet my pets
We have a rabbit, carrott, who stays in his cage. He provides lots of entertainment for any dog who comes to visit.

About my yard
We have a large fenced backyard, full of grass. It connects from our back door and walk out deck - and our guests just love this!

My experience administering medication
Yes, we can administer any type of meds necessary. I have also had to give shots to my dogs before, so when I say this is not an issue, I truly mean it.

What Deanna needs to know about your dog

I would like to know if your pet has aggression issues. Since I also have pets in this home, we need to make sure my dogs are safe. We would also like to know if your pet is fully house trained. We are not one to panic if there is an accident on the carpet, but we want to know how much we need to keep your pet in our sights, versus letting them be more independent and explore.

We would also like to know if your pet has a chewing issue. This is not a deal breaker, we just want to know so we can give them more attention and distractions to protect our furniture.

We cannot host stays for male dogs who have not been fixed. It causes our male to be overly protective and territorial.

We have no breed preferences. We love them all.

When your dog stays in Deanna's home

Here's where we'll take our walks
We will walk your dog in our yard, front and back. We also like to walk them up and down our street. There is a sidewalk. There are also other dogs walking around, so there is lots of opportunity for interaction with other dogs and little time for boredom.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
This depends on where your dog is used to sleeping. Our dogs sleep with my children in their rooms, sometimes on the bed, sometimes in the chair. Your dog is free to sleep where they are comfortable sleeping. I find when we watch dogs, the dog usually dictates where they want to sleep, and we allow that. If you have a preference, please let me know so we don't instill any bad habits while you are away.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I mostly work from home, so I allow all dogs to have free access to the home when I'm here. There are times when I need to make sales calls, but on those days, its generally only for a few hours.

Lily had a great time during her week with Deanna and her family. I loved the daily photos and updates from Deanna, she was great about communicating with us. I had no worries that Lily was being well cared for and having fun while we were gone.

Deanna was very good with our Min Pin. Our dog is an old lady requiring special attention and Deanna stepped up to the plate! We really appreciated the text messages with pictures. Give Deanna a try. You won't be disappointed. We will return!

Great, thanks Deanna to you and your family for taking care of Cocoa, we can tell you made her feel good. We loved seeing the pictures of her while we were out of town. Just knowing she was fed and taken care of gave us peace of mind, didn't have to worry leaving her, will never use a kennel again! Thanks again The Lackeys

Deanna and her family were great with Hugo. Having other dogs in their home made it more fun for our dog, he seemed to get plenty of play time. Deanna was great about sending me daily text updates with pictures that made us feel extremely comfortable leaving our little guy with her while we were vacationing out of the country. I would highly recommend Deanna and her family as a sitter.

Jamie and Trevor had a blast staying here! They were well taken care of and even got the opportunity to play with other doggies. Deanna texted me a picture every day, showing me how my dogs were doing well! I would definitely book again!

Deanna watched our 2 Bostons while we were away for four days. She seems to genuinely care for the dogs and texted us several times to provide updates.

Deanna and her family did an amazing job with Hollywood. I've never left him with anyone but family and was hesitant. They treated my 9 yr old lab (that has separation anxiety) with so much care and love. And kept me informed on a daily basis. They truly went out of there way to make him comfortable and happy. I will definately use them again

Deanna was wonderful. She and her family welcomed and spoiled our dog during a week-long stay. I loved the pictures while we were away, which showed Koda in several different modes of play and rest. He was well cared for and we appreciate it. This experience was so much better than putting him in a kennel for a week. Thank you, Susan
