About Rebecca

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, I'm Rebecca and I lost my pet a little more than a year ago. I have visited several shelters, but am just not ready to take on another pet full-time. But I sure miss having a pet to care for and interact with.

One of my most enjoyable jobs I've had was working in a pet salon, bathing and grooming animals. I loved all my customers, and even the ones who were uneasy quickly learned to trust their paws and hair in my gentle hands (despite holding nail clippers and a detangling comb). One of my most favorite and simplest things to do were using my special brush to minimize shedding between appointments. This, among other things, is something I can offer while I sit for your pet.

I have had animals all my life. First came dogs, then rabbits, then cats, and then reptiles! And then I went back to mammals. Their food was just a bit more easier to "administer!"

I love the outdoors, as many pets do, so I will make it a priority to spend time in fresh air where there are limitless scents for your pet to experience. I take the dogs I look after to a large city park from my very own backyard that no one seems to know about except me. It offers many diverse smells and terrains. This stimulation is very good for a pet's well-being! I also think it is very important to interact with pets and give them the full attention they deserve. Many of us have busy lives and our pets are left awaiting for a friendly, living friend to receive physical contact and interact with. I am committed to be that person!

After losing my pet to diabetes, I naturally had a lot of regret wishing I had more time. More time to play, cuddle, etc. I have accepted that I cannot have that time back, but I can offer my time to other pets who otherwise would be alone/unstimulated or potentially in hands that are less passionate than mine.

[Please be advised there is a $10 increase in my boarding rate per day on holidays, including the day before and after. The reason being that it takes a significant sacrifice on my end to accommodate guests during the holidays and it's important to me your pet receives the same excessive love and attention they would had their vaycay not been during a holiday.]

Rebecca was wonderful. We can always tell if our dog is under stress by the way she smells, and when we came home after our vacation, Molly smelled delicious! She communicated well, sent pictures and the house was spotless on our return. We would delicious! She communicated well, sent pictures and the house was spotless on our return.
