About Rebecca & James

At Chateau Brunippa, Bruno (our Boston Terrier) is the general manager and Pippa (Terrier Mix) is head of social activities. They would love to share their numerous toys and large backyard with other friendly guys and girls that love to play until the sun goes down!
We live in a small house with a large, gated back yard which is ideal for play time. When we are home (which is most of the time) Bruno and Pippa are free to roam from inside the house to the backyard. Depending on the weather we will either fill the plastic pools for the guys to play in or, during the winter months, crank up the heat and get out the blankets for a good old snuggle time! We take our house-guests for 2 walks a day and many hours of play!

Both James and I work from home, and our little ones and house guests are rarely left alone!

Being avid animal lovers, we understand that upcoming vacations and trips can create stress for doggy mommies and daddies. We want to assure you that we will treat your little one as special as we treat our own. Come join us for a fun-filled slumber party! Bruno and Pippa can’t wait to meet them!

Our fee is based on a 26 hour period. If your pooch will be staying with us for longer than 26 hours but less than 48 hours, there will be a $25 daycare charge added to the total cost of his or her stay. Pick-ups must be before 8pm. In certain circumstances, we can make arrangements to be available after 8pm. This must be discussed prior to booking.

Muki (French Bulldog) had a fun packed day playing with Bruno & Pippa! Thanks Rebecca for the funny video of Bruno & Muki playing tug of war. Her absolutely favorite game! Muki slept for hours once home. Thank you too for being sensitive to her tendency to overplay by encouraging quite time. Great Hosts! You can always tell when you've found the right Host when your pooch doesn't want to leave her new friends!

Our Frenchie LOVES visiting with Rebecca, James, Bruno and Pippa!
Our boys just returned home from a five day stay at Chateau Brunnipa. James and Rebecca were fantastic and provided us with daily photos and messages with updates on our pups, which made us feel super comfortable and at ease with the dogs on their own vacay! I am so glad to have a great home and great people to leave the boys with when we need to leave town and can't take them with. Thank you James and Rebecca!

Doug had a great time. He's exhausted... has been sleeping since we arrived home. We'll totally use James & Rebecca again!
Mona always enjoys her visit! Rebecca and James are the best!
We left our 5 month old puppy Oscar with Rebecca and James for 4 nights and could not have asked for a better experience. Rebecca and James were extremely accommodating of our travel schedule, gave us video/picture/text updates every day, and clearly treated Oscar like one of the family. For this mom, nervous about leaving him for the first time, it was so comforting to know he was with people who really cared about him. He had such a great time playing with Pippa and Bruno and the rest of the crew that we're sure he's a little disappointed to be going home :-). We'll be back for a daycare visit soon!

I cannot give a higher recommendation for both Rebecca and James. They were both professional, incredibly kind, and truly cared about our dog Scout. We received consistent photos and updates that made us feel at ease during our vacation. It was obvious that Scout had a great time and we couldn’t be more grateful. We could not have picked a better home for our dog.

This was our first time leaving our 4 month old puppy, Oscar, with Rebecca and James. We felt so incredibly comfortable with them and confident Oscar was in great hands. The proof though came when I picked him up. We said our goodbyes, closed the door, started walking away.....and he turned around and walked back up the front porch steps! He didn't want to leave his buddies :-). We'll be back for sure.

We love Rebecca and James! They are the best! Mona loves her stays with them and we can travel worry free.
Rebecca and James absolutely exceeded my expectations. After a 3-day weekend both my dogs came home happy and tired. They are also a very respectful, professional, trustworthy and fun couple. I will definitely be using them every time I leave town from now on. Thanks again!

We trust Rebecca and James completely with our dog! They are absolutely the best.
Really impressed with Rebecca & James! Would definitely recommend them. Our dog had a great time and came home totally exhausted. Rebecca provided us with updates each day. They were very responsive with any questions.
Rebecca and James are awesome!!!
I left my dog (a 40 lb Labradoodle), Waffles, with Rebecca and James for 11 days while on a family vacation out of the country. After having a bad experience with a previous sitter, I was in search of a home where my dog would be comfortable. My dog is a bit neurotic and a tad high maintenance, but Rebecca and James went out of their way to cater to his idiosyncrasies! When I explained to them that he may need to be hand fed, or that he has issues walking from carpet to hard surface floors (yes, he has a lot of character!), they laughed and said it wouldn't be a problem. It was nice to have a meet and greet to make sure our dogs got along; they also asked a lot of questions, which I appreciated because it indicated to me that they really wanted to get to know me and my dog so that they could make Waffles' stay as comfortable as possible. I had a very relaxing vacation thanks to Rebecca and James, and I highly recommend them if you're looking for a home that will provide your dog with a mini vacation of their own! Oh, and the daily pictures and updates were nice to receive. Thanks again Rebecca and James...hopefully you'll be available next time I'm in need of a sitter!

FABULOUS! Rebecca and James are awesome. Total peace of mind that our dog was in great hands while we were away.
Slugger had a great time!
We are so very thankful to Rebecca and James for taking care of Jack after a last minute booking. They were conscientious with his allergies and included him into their play times and morning snuggle sessions. They even sent me daily photo updates of his activities running around the yard and playing tug o war followed by dog pile like cuddles. I know Jack had a great time because he was exhausted from play time and napped the rest of Sunday. Rebecca and James are perfect doggy sitters.

We just picked up one tired, happy pup. Thank you again Rebecca, James, Bruno, and Pippa! Milah has a sleepy smile on her face and so do we!
James and Rebecca are amazing! Rebecca emailed me pictures and pup updates which is important to me. I am so happy to find them and trust them with our pups.
I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Rebecca and James! I left my dog Benton with them for the first time for a 10-day stay and I felt completely comfortable while I was away. We did a meet and greet prior to the stay and they were so friendly and had a great energy.. you can tell they enjoy doing this! Benton seemed very comfortable around them and their own dogs, and they sent me picture updates while I was away. They definitely treated my dog as one of their own and he was allowed to live in their house just as he is used to at home (sleep on the couch, etc.). They played frisbee with him every night (Benton's favorite) and went for walks everyday. I would definitely use Rebecca and James again and I highly recommend them!

Rebecca and James are the best! Margie and Blue had such a great time playing with Bruno and Pippa and snuggling with Rebecca and James. This was the first time that Margie and Blue had ever stayed with strangers away from home, but my mind was at ease knowing how loving and sweet Rebecca and James are. We will definitely be using their services again!

This is the second time we used Rebecca and James and, once again, just a great experience. Very easy and our pug comes back like we never left!
Once again, Lucy had a BLAST with Bruno and Pippa! Rebecca and James are wonderful, accommodating hosts who do everything they can to make sure the pups they are hosting are taken care of. Their flexibility in dates and times makes it so easy for my boyfriend and I when we have last minute plans come up.

Lucy has had 4 vacay's with Bruno & Pippa and each one results in her coming home and being too tired to move. In fact, the most difficult decision she has to make on those days is where in the apartment she plans on napping.

We feel very comfortable leaving Lucy in the care of Rebecca & James because we know that she is well taken care of and having the time of her life. :)

We had planned a weekend trip a few months ago with the assumption that our pup Milah was invited as well. Unfortunately, we found out that it would not be appropriate to bring her just a few days before we were supposed to leave. Rebecca and James were quick to respond to my reservation, which exceeded my expectations on such a busy weekend. After learning about about Milah, we had a quick meet and greet where they met us at a park with their own dogs and an additional two that they were taking care of. They were very careful that Milah didn't get overwhelmed with so many dogs, and we met each of them one at a time.
We rarely leave Milah for more than an hour and when we do, it's difficult because she has separation anxiety. I felt very comfortable from the beginning with Revecca and James, and they took such great care of our Mi. The pictures and update were so comforting. I will definitely keep them in my thoughts if we ever go out of town again.

It was easy and smooth. Our pug made herself right at home and came home nice and relaxed, as if we had never left. We will definitely use Rebecca and James again!
My foster dog Gwen Tilly stayed with Rebecca and James for several days. She warmed up to them in short order. They took such good care of her, and sent some great pictures of her stay with them. I would highly recommend Rebecca and James to anyone. I work with a dog rescue and frequently need pet sitters for my foster dogs. I will routinely reserve a spot with Rebecca and James for all my future pet sitting needs.

Lucy had the greatest time at Chateau Brunippa! Pippa's social activities included a never ending chase match until the sun went down and lots of tug wars with all their awesome toys. In the evening all 3 pups pushed their beds together and watched movies til they fell asleep. Bruno made sure that his dog parents took lots of pictures to send to me while I was away.

Lucy is so tuckered out from her stay with Bruno and Pippa that she invoked the Sunday sleep in rule. As she snores away on the couch, I'm booking my next reservation at Chateau Brunippa - thanks to their availability, Lucy gets to come back next weekend!

They were the best! Always kept us informed of Oliver's well-being. Took lots of pictures. They treated Oliver like one of the family; Pippa and Bruno welcomed him to the family too! Oliver had his 1st swim lesson and he went camping. He had the best time! We will definitely be leaving Oliver with Rebecca & James for any future trips.
