About Rebecca

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello, my name is Rebecca, chief doggie caregiver and maker of organic homemade treats. I have raised, trained and titled 3 show dogs and a forth on the way to therapy training for children.

Your big or little four legged family member will have a safe, secure, grassy backyard to play in and full access to my home at all times, plus a cooled garage with a dog door. I have a doggie pool to splash in, agility jumps and a tunnel for training or just for fun. We can go for a hike in the desert or hang out at the 5 acre Bark Park. The Bark Park has 3 secure play areas for large and small dogs and two doggie splash pads to cool off.

When it comes time for planning those family vacations, and you can’t always take your dog with you, so I’m here to ease that worry and stress. My work makes if possible for me to have flexible hours. I have all major holidays, and summer available, plus some extra in between.

I have the experience to provide obedience training and can help teach you how to teach your dog with positive reinforcement for an additional fee of $10.00. Elderly pets are always welcome.

More De-TAILS: (all detail are negotiable)

I can pick up or drop off your pet within 4 miles of my home at a cost of $10.00.
All dogs over 4 months old must be spayed or neutered. I will also need a current copy of your pets shot record.

Operating Hours: 6:00 AM to 8:00 PM. My rates do reflect a 24-hour turnaround time. A daycare fee will be charged for late pickups after 4 ½ hours. If you are unable to pick you pet up on or before 8:00 PM they will need to stay another night.

A Meet and Greet is required for all male dogs to insure there a no marking problems.

Make an appointment to come by my home, check things out and meet me, and my

Rebecca was excellent in managing different personalities of my two pups and other dogs at the residence! Very knowledgeable with the herding breed and was willing to take them on short notice.
Rebecca was so very accommodating even though I did a very last minute booking. Her home & care were above reproach & my little guy loved it there. He couldn't wait for me to leave to start playing with Sky. I got almost daily messages & pictures that let me know how he was doing & after I picked him up & got him home he crashed really hard letting me know that he had played hard & had a good time. Would use Rebecca again in a heart beat! Excellent care.

Rebecca was a great host for Stephie. She responded promptly to my last minute reservation request and was flexible about drop off and pickup times for day care. Most important, Rebecca understands dog-to-dog communication and didn't freak out when Stephie reprimanded an enthusiastic puppy for encroaching on her personal space. Thanks, Rebecca.

We left Louie with Rebecca for about 9 days and we think he loved it! Both Rebecca and her dog made Louie feel right at home and loved! We will definitely keep her in mind when we take another vacation! Thanks again!
Excellent
Our puppy sitter backed out at the last minute. We were afraid we would have to cancel our vacation. I found the web site and looked through the profiles of the many sitters. We were instantly drawn to Rebecca's profile. It was very short notice, to short to do a meet and greet so we just hoped for the best. I told Rebecca we had a 4 month old lab. I expected a have sigh but she was excited and said she looked forward to having him.
After dropping blade off we recieved regular updates and pictures/videos of him playing and sleeping. We arrived back to the same puppy we dropped off. He was well taken care of!! We are hoping to use Rebecca again and will recommend her to our friends and family.

We felt great leaving our pup Panko with Rebecca. She had great communication from the start and was quick in responding and flexible with drop off and pick up options. When we got there, she invited us in and showed us all the places the pups could play and how everything was done, as far as play, eating, etc. She sent us pics and videos throughout the stay. She has a great way with dogs and Panko came back super happy. We'd definitely come back here if Panko needs another vacay while we're in Vegas.

Rebecca took care of Shorty as if he belonged to her and treated him just like family. Three weeks is a long time for a dog to be away from its' owner and I originally had concerns about leaving him with anyone. My concerns were but to rest when I did the visitation and saw that he would be well cared for. She kept me updated weekly with photo's to my cell and got him bathed and cleaned up for our return. It was a huge relief to know he was in such good hands for his and our vacation.

An excellent stay as always. Sadie loves it there and I feel she is in very safe and concerned hands and I feel comfortable leaving her there when I'm out of town.
Although she is a nice enough lady, she needs to learn to communicate more honestly. She did not tell me when I needed to pick up my dog and charged me for an extra $20 worth of dog daycare that I could not control because my flight didn't get back until 8pm. She also boasts a lot more than she can deliver on. I do not have the best behaved dog, I know this and clearly communicated this. She told me that she would do some training with him while she had him which did not happen. She told me to muzzle my dog when I picked him up. He is a rescue, and I am working very hard to train him better, but that comment really broke my spirit.

Excellent, as always. Thank you again.
Very pleased, as always. Rebecca does a great job and our dog is always excited to stay with Rebecca and Sky.
Rebecca is wonderful. She kept me informed on my dog's stay, which was wonderful because I was nervous how he would do. My dog had a great time!
Excellent stay as always. Lots of activities and play included. Sadie loves going there, I feel very good about leaving her for short or extended stays.
Gigi had a great time. I hope to get Rebecca's care for her again.
Rebecca is great and our dog always has a great time when she's there. We are repeat customers and will continue to use Rebecca.
Gigi had a great time, and Rebecca was able to deal with her little mistake! I am so glad to find someone who is wise and resourceful when caring for my pup!!
Our puppy has enjoyed both of his stays with Rebecca and I'd definitely use her again. Thanks, Rebecca!
Rebecca is amazing! Rylee loves spending time with her. She gets to play with the hose, eat carrots from her garden and when I pick her up she is so happy and tired and I have peace of mind leaving my fur-baby with someone I trust.
Rebecca was great with our dog who was also a dog that was visiting with me from a private client. He came on our vacation with us and could not attend the three day concert we attended. We found Rebecca, who after meeting her was clearly a dog star! She knows her breeds, provides lots of play time and attention AND she makes homemade organic dog treats! How awesome is that. She sent me updated tests and pics and kept him entertained along with her dog, who was also very accommodating.
Thank you so much Rebecca for the excellent care.

Sadie had a blast, as usual. She loves Rebecca and Sky. Rebecca kept her busy at the dog park and playing hide and seek, and she was spoiled rotten with homemade organic treats. (And thank you for the toy. It's her new favorite!)
We had a great experience leaving our dog with Rebecca. Great communication and regular text updates and our dog was treated like family. Rebecca's dog is friendly, calm and played well with our dog. We would highly recommend Rebecca and will be using her in the future.

Another great stay for Sadie. She loves Rebecca and Sky!
Rebecca was awesome! So warm and loving and easy going. My dog went to the dog park and groomer and played all day. She even made a little dog journal so that I knew what she was thinking and doing during my trip. I will definitely be back!
What a great experience!

I had an opportunity to take Sadie over to meet Rebecca a few days prior to heading out of town. Sadie felt at home right away with Rebecca and Skyler.

When I dropped Sadie off for the long weekend, Rebecca was busy filling Kongs with kibble and organic pumpkin and green beans, and there was a welcome note for Sadie on the chalk wall :)

When we picked Sadie up, I think she was a little disappointed she had to leave. She had a great time playing with Skyler and the puppy also there for the weekend. Rebecca has an obvious love for dogs, and she will be our first choice for Sadie the next time we head out of town.
