About Renee

22 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! I'm Renee and I absolutely love dogs! Dogs have been around me my entire life. Honestly; I wouldn't know how to act if I didn't have a dog or 2 under foot at all times Lol! I myself, have had at least 2 dogs (at the same time) since I was 24 years old (wow, it's been 22 years already) I've always trained my own dogs and my friends and family would always compliment me on how well behaved my dogs are. I do not have kids, my dogs ARE my kids. I love dogs more than I like people (Seriously).
I live just minutes from downtown Knoxville (Old City, Market Square etc.) in the old part of town where the streets are lined with sidewalks and lots of trees. My backyard is fenced in by a privacy fence and also a short 4 foot picket fence. The gates are latch secured. I work from home so my doggies spend as much time outside as they need/want.
I am here to spread the LOVE to your fur-baby while you're away.
**Some house rules: if your beloved doggie has any aggression tendencies, PLEASE inform me firsthand. I do not want to stress my own fur-babies out by bringing an unsure visitor into our home.
**IMPORTANT: If your pet has any type of quirks (i.e An Escape Artist, likes to dig, likes to bolt out of an open door, separation anxiety, food aggression etc. PLEASE advise of this at time of booking!! Being informed allows me to provide special care/attention to your fur-baby so that everyone has a great & positive vacay with us.
*Also: please make sure that your pet does not have fleas and/or ticks when booking. My home & doggies thank you :)

I've known Renee for a little over a year and she is wonderful with dogs. She has two large dogs that are very well taken care of by her. They are so well behaved. My small Biscuit loves Renee. Biscuit is not used to being around large dogs however, with Renee around he is comfortable with her large dogs. Animals love her! She is very caring and attentive to their needs. I would recommend Renee to be a part of the DogVacay team. She's the best!

Bella had a wonderful first stay with Renee and her dog-children Max and Grace. She came home happy and healthy. Renee's daily updates, with photos, put Bella's humans at ease and allowed them to relax and enjoy their time away. Bella will definitely be back soon.
Renee was awesome! She was very accommodating for a last min stay for Scout when my house sitter canceled. Everything was easy with booking. I really appreciated the photos and note from her letting me know scout was adjusting well and having a good time. Scout had a great time and I know enjoyed playing with the other dogs! We are both looking forward to Scout having another stay with Renee soon!
Renee was great! She gave my puppy lots of attention and her setup is ideal for hosting- a cozy house with friendly dogs and a fenced in yard. I will definitely be contacting her again!
Renee took great care of Hanna! Hanna can sometimes be a little anxious, but Renee made her comfortable for the first moment we arrived. From the pictures Renee sent, Hanna was clearly comfortable and well cared for-- and she was relaxed and happy when I picked her up. Renee's dogs are friendly and were very good with Hanna as well. This was the first time I've left Hanna with someone I didn't know, and Renee did a nice job making me feel comfortable too!
Renee is simply the BEST! She took excellent care of our dog once again, and we are proud to be repeat customers. We will surely book her again. She is responsible, prompt, has great communication, and takes great care of our beloved dog. She anticipates your needs before you have to ask, followed our instructions exactly, -and sent us pics and videos of our dog having a great time with her. We couldn't be happier to have found Renee and strongly recommend her to Knoxville dog owners looking for a friendly, responsible dog lover to care for their pets. Thanks Renee!
Renee is wonderful! She made our high-anxiety dog feel very calm and safe and shared great pics and videos while we were away. She is prompt and professional and a pleasure to work with! Highly recommend Renee for your pet care needs!
Renee came through for us when we needed someone for our old lady, Mallory. She has high anxiety and I noticed by the end of the night Mallory was comfortable around Renee and was bouncing around the place with a smile on her face!
Mallory came home so happy! I could tell by her interaction with Renee that she really took to her and felt comfortable. Renee sent me the cutest pictures of Mallory cuddled up on the couch with her. I was happy to see them pop up in my inbox when I was at work, they put me at ease knowing she was being loved on and cared for just as she would at home. Renee is wonderful!
