About Rebecca

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have been taking care of dogs in my home for DogVacay for over 3 years and I have had over 30 years of caring for my personal dogs so you can rest assured you doggie will get the best of care. If you are a new client, a Meet and Greet would be a good way to get to know each other.

I have a full, fenced in back yard and a sidewalk for taking walks. I work part-time so I am home most of days. What to bring for your doggies' overnight stay? A bed or crate, whichever they are used to, food and bowls, treats and toys.

I would love to have your doggie come stay with Oliver and me whether overnight or just for the day. Please check my calendar for availability.

We loved leaving our dogs with Rebecca and will definitely continue to use her in the near future!
Our very active 3 yr old Golden seemed very happy with Rebecca. Rebecca was very positive about how Boogie behaved, I know he is a handful because he is so energetic. We were very pleased with the experience and would use Rebecca again if she would take our dog!!!!!!

Rebecca was amazing!!! Will definitely use her again in the future!!!!
Rebecca and Oliver (her 4-legged friend) were great hosts to our two pups Ricky and Lucy. Despite my Ricky being a very playful large and newly rescued Boxer/Lab mix, he and Lucy were made to feel very much at home and the atmosphere was extremely pleasant and calming at the meet & greet, at the drop off and then again at the pick up. Great back yard area for the pooches to play and run and bed sharing was also a blast we learned :-). Will definitely have our babies stay with Rebecca and Oliver again!

Rebecca was so easy to board with! She kept me updated and was super flexible. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to board their pet with her! Awesome host!
5 stars for Rebecca for she was great with my dog while we were out of town..She text messages to let me know how Trampas was doing every day.
Kofi always has anxiety about me leaving him. However, when I pick him up he always seems calm and happy after visiting with Rebecca. I'm glad he has another "home" he can go to when I'm away.
Rebecca took my newly found puppy on short notice. Great communication. Thanks!
Ava (rescue terrier) and Teddy (Pomeranian) had a great "Vacay" with Rebecca! Teddy had a little separation anxiety but Rebecca went the extra mile to comfort him. My husband and I were happy to know they were well cared for while attending a convention. We would definitely love to have her care for our babies during a future visit!

Kofi seemed very comfortable when I dropped him. He usually shakes when I leave him. When I picked him up he was very calm. He obviously loves the environment at Rebecca's.
Rebecca is the greatest ! My Bella and Bennie love staying with her. I recently left my dogs with Rebecca for 3 weeks. They did wonderfully . I would recommend her to anyone.
Vandy had a great time at Rebecca's. He had fun with her Oliver & another Havanese boarding. I would have liked to hear about him during stay more, only once when I asked. Thank you for the care, that is most important.
Rebecca was great! She took Teddy on short notice due to a family emergency. He came home exhausted from playing with all his little friends!
My dog, Quinn, loved her stay with Rebecca R at Happy Tails. From drop off to pick up, Quinn was so happy and I could tell she was well cared for. I highly recommend Happy Tails!
Rebecca is terrific. We couldn't be happier with her and her love and care for Harley. Our old gal has some special needs (taking medication, can't climb up steps, is needy and prefers humans) so we take special care in finding that perfect sitter and Rebecca is just that. She has a calm personality, is very trustworthy, responsible and Harley always seems happy and well taken care of when we pick her up. I'm hoping my five star selection comes through on the screen for our five star sitter.

As usual, Rebecca was great. This was an emergency for us, and we didn't have to worry about Teddy at all.
Rebecca was wonderful with Charlie. It was really nice knowing that he was in good hands. Rebecca even worked with Charlie on his jumping (something we are really working on with him -puppy thing!) We'll use her again for sure! Rebecca is pawsome!! Thanks!

My dog just spent her second "vacay" with Rebecca. Sophie has severe separation anxiety, and does not get along well with other dogs. She is an older dog with a very dominant personality. Rebecca handled Sophie with ease, and made my trip worry free! When I picked her up, she was happy and not at all stressed. Thank you Rebecca!

Rebecca was spectacular! My Shadow was a last minute reservation, but she took her in and Shadow apparently enjoyed her visit with Rebecca very much. She had a great time with the other pups too!
Rebecca was extremely flexible with my schedule and very responsive to all my messages. Tucker had a wonderful time and will definitely be visit her again!!
Uno had a great time with Rebecca and the other dogs!
Rebecca was awesome! She was very responsive and easy to work with. Our dogs enjoyed their stay there. Would absolutely use again and have already recommended her.
My dogs had a great time at Rebecca's house and were well cared for. We received several picture updates throughout the week, and pick up and drop off was easy. We will definitely use Rebecca again.
Rupert had a great time! Thank you!
Teddy really enjoyed his time at Rebecca's. He had issues with anxiety at other boarding sites but none at all with her. Everything seemed to go great!
Rebecca is fantastic with Harper. He can be very high maintenance, but he always comes home happy and sleepy from great vacation!
Izzy's visit was great. She was delivered back to me happy and and relaxed.
Rebecca was amazing with our two young and very energetic dogs. She cared for them while we hosted a Thanksgiving weekend and we can give her our utmost recommendation.
Great experience! This was my first time using DogVacay and Rebecca is an excellent representative. She was very easy to work with and sent updates on our dogs and pictures. Will definitely use her again!
Rebecca is a terrific sitter-we were very pleased with how well she cared for our dog. Thanks!
Rebecca was wonderful! She was very warm and welcoming, and here home was the same. Our dog, Kylie, was a shelter dog and is shy and very cautious with strangers. Rebecca immediately made Kylie at ease and we were very comfortable with her staying. Rebecca was very accommodating and gracious and we would not hesitate taking Kylie there again.

Rebecca is a fantastic sitter, Lily loves to go to her house and play with the other dogs. I never have to worry about her when she is at Rebecca's house, I would highly recommend her!
Rebecca provided a home away from home for our dog, Reyna. I would recommend Rebecca to anyone.
Rebecca is wonderful. She goes above and beyond, even washing our dog's bed before we picked her up! My dog is very attached to me but after staying with Rebecca a couple of times, she runs to her door and whines to get in!
As always, Rebecca was awesome! Chloe loves her and she keeps us updated with pictures and texts. She's great!
Rebecca is an awesome dog sitter. My dog Lily loves to go her house and play with the other dogs. Rebecca has a great facility and is very accomodating!
Rebecca is wonderful. It is clear that she truly cares for the pets she watches over. Carlie, our Bichon, loves Rebecca and her dog Oliver and always gets "waggy tailed" as soon as she realizes where we are. I love that I know Carlie is in great hands and having a great time when she is with Rebecca and Oliver. I highly recommend them both!

Rebecca is Jesses' second mother!! We both love her and don't know what we'd do without her!
Buster was well taken care of. I got updates on how my dog was adjusting and I loved getting a picture of him while we were away. He looked content and that helped me to be content!! Will definitely use Rebecca again in the future.
Fantastic place to have your pup watched for a vacation! Will definitely use again :)
My dog, Georgia, is like my 3rd child, So when it came to choosing a place to board her, I was very selective. Georgia and I were so happy with her stay at Rebecca place. She is warm & friendly and her home is very neat, clean & tidy. I loved that she sent me a text and a photo of Georgia while I was away. I would definitely recommend Rebecca. And Georgia will most certainly be staying with her again.

Rebecca is wonderful!!! I was SO comforting to know that our puppy Samantha was in a good place while we were gone!! You can tell she loves her fur babies. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!
Rebecca was very accommodating with our schedule. I think our dog's lodging was nicer than ours! We would definitely use Rebecca again in the future.
Always a great experience!!!
Rebecca is an excellent host and we have never failed to be pleased with our dog's relaxed demeanor when we pick him up.
Rebecca is simply the BEST! Our cocker, Lucy, was so excited to go back to stay with her that she actually was straining on her lead to go into her home. We are thrilled to have found Miss Rebecca!
Always first class.
This was my first booking with Rebecca and it went exceedingly well. Communication with her was prompt and she was flexible with pick up and drop off times. Her home and yard are very nice. She texted and emailed updates about my dog while I was away. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a comfortable place for their dog to stay!
Read More...
This was our first booking with Rebecca. Normally, we have left our Lucy at our vet for boarding. A friend recommended Rebecca because she has been so impressed with her in the past. Rebecca communicated with us regularly with texts and PICTURES
Kona seemed to have a great time with Rebecca and her dogs! Nice house and yard! And Rebecca was so flexible with us in terms of drop-off and pick-up...much appreciated. Would definitely have Kona stay there again if in the Chattanooga area..
Izzy's stay with Rebecca was great! This stay was Izzy's longest time away from us and she came home happy and well adjusted. No problems getting back into her old routine.
Jessie had so much fun with Rebecca and enjoyed playing with the other dogs. She is great!!
Rebecca was an amazing host for Blue and Olive. She met us ahead of time to show me her home and meet the dogs, which put my mind at ease. The dogs were well cared for while we were gone. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Rebecca was awesome! Her home is so inviting, I wanted to stay myself. One of our dogs was on medication and she had no problem with administering it twice a day. While we were gone, Rebecca sent us pictures and notes about how the dogs were doing. That really helped us feel better about leaving them. I would whole-heartedly recommend her to anyone wanting the best possible care for their pets.

We just picked up our Boston terrier Baxter from a great stay at Rebecca's, she kept him for 5 days while my husband and I were out of town. Baxter had a great time at Rebecca's, I can tell that he got lots of attention and play time while he was there because he was happy and tired (in a good way) from playing when we picked him up. I can tell that Rebecca really cares about the dogs she keeps, I felt really good about leaving Baxter with her because I knew he would be very well taken care of. Rebecca kept us updated with texts on how Baxter was doing while we were away, which I really appreciated. This is the 2nd time we have left Baxter with Rebecca, we will definitely use her again in the future and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for great dog care in Chattanooga.

Rebecca is great!
Rebecca kept our ten-year-old Lhasa Apso Pepper this weekend for one day and one night while we had a quick trip out of town. It was our first time using DogVacay. It went great! She took very good care of Pepper and sent us a couple of updates while we were gone along with a photo of Pepper. Thanks to Rebecca for taking care of our little boy while we were away!

Chloe was well taken care of. will use this host again.
Awesome, as always! Sandy stays with Rebecca quite often, so it's like her second home now!
We recently moved to the area, and had never had anyone other than family watch our 6 year old dachshund. Rebecca is so nice, and put us at ease. She sent text updates each day, and when we went to pick Harper up, he had made a couple of new doggie friends! Harper will definitely be staying with Rebecca again.

Once our 2 dogs were with Rebecca, we realized that the drop off option would really help us out.
She brought them to US while we were in Dalton,GA!!! She found us @ the convention center in the middle of the CROWDED parking lot!!! She's Great!!!

She was awesome! We had 2 dogs staying so, she gave a custom quote for their stay & I really appreciated it!!! Took really good care of our babies & was willing to work with us anyway she could!!!
Rebecca was awesome with Chloe. This was Chloe's second stay with Rebecca and I could tell when we dropped her off that she felt right at home. I will continue to use Rebecca whenever we need someone to spoil our baby while we are away.
Rebecca is professional, efficient, and genuinely cares for the dogs she keeps. She made sure our dogs had lots of playtime and got plenty of treats. They seemed very happy when we picked them up.
Excellent as always. Our top poodle has an 'anxiety reaction' to any change, but he is always completely relaxed and unstressed when we pick him up. That says it all to us.
Rebecca is nothing short of outstanding. My dogs know when we are headed to her house and they can't wait to get there.
There are two words that my dogs light up to. One is "treat" and the other is "Rebecca" They are always happy to spend time at Rebecca's house.
As always, my dogs are happy and Rebecca is most accommodating.
Rebecca was very welcoming to our little Hope and she had a great time. We will definitely bring her back when we're in Chattanooga again. Thanks for the great care.
Rebecca was so sweet and sent me a update picture of my little guy while I was away. Highly recommended!
Rebecca is an excellent host. We've used her in the past and Jacques always comes home completely relaxed and unstressed. Rebecca goes that extra mile by texting his condition and any concerns while we are away so there is never a though that our pet is in good hands. Highly recommended.

Rebecca was incredibly nice and flexible as my plans changed from initial request to dropping off my dog, Max. Everything was very smooth and my dog had a wonderful time.
Our pug, Wally, seems to have had a positive experience staying with Rebecca and her pup. She updated us daily with texts letting us know how he was doing. Her home is in a lovely, quiet part of town, and she has a fenced in back yard where the dogs can get exercise. I would certainly recommend her service.

OUTSTANDING!!!!! Rebecca is GREAT! Nikky has returned again for a visit with her :)
All went well! very easy to work with Rebecca and my dog seemed to enjoy the stay!
Our second time with Rebecca! Louis seemed to love his stay. He's getting more and more used to being kept by others as I am away. I am glad we got to go back to Rebecca, so he can stay with someone familiar. He's exhausted now. Thank you!!
Our Goldendoodle, Macy, had a great time at Rebecca's! We were passing through on our way south and needed a fun place for Macy while we had some family fun around the area. Rebecca was very responsive & professional in planning the stay, wonderful with Macy and sent us updates so we knew she was doing well! We will definitely use Rebecca if we visit again and would highly recommend her to anyone!

We booked with Rebecca about an hour before we dropped off our dog, Missy. Rebecca was great with the last minute drop off. Missy loved her week there and we got a picture of her and an update midweek. When we go out of town again we will be looking for Rebecca to watch Missy again.

I've had poor experiences with boarding my dog, Louis. This was my first using Dog Vacay and it was a success! Rebecca was so good with Louis. He was very happy when I picked him up. Rebecca sent update texts throughout the weekend which put me at ease. Great experience and we'll definitely use Rebecca again!

Rebecca was great. I loved that she kept me updated with texts on how Baxter was doing. Baxter had a great time playing with Oliver & the other dogs; he was very happy & tired from playing when we picked him up. I would definitely use Rebecca again, I felt comfortable knowing Baxter was in good hands while we were away.

Rebecca did a great job watching over Luke - my 10 year old lab beagle mix. He suffered some separation anxiety the first evening. Rebecca called me to let me know and I went back briefly to tend to him. By the next morning Luke was fine and I was able to enjoy my time in Chattanooga. Definitely would use Rebecca again.

Rebecca was just wonderful with my little Gracie. I was sent text messages about how Gracie was doing almost daily. It made me feel comfortable knowing that Gracie was in such loving hands!
Soooooooo nice! Personalized care for our Greyhound in a great area of Chattanooga for walks too!
Rebecca goes above and beyond! We love her, and so does Sandy (our dog)!!!
Dogs are always happy and eager to get there and happy when they leave. Always 5 stars.
We had to attend and out of state wedding. I put out a help message to my havanese forum and dogvacay and Rebecca were recommended by two people. I was able to email Rebecca with all my concerns. Her house was very close to our hotel in Chattanooga. Lola made friends with her dog Oliver immediately. Lola is my very loved fur baby. Rebecca texted me twice to let me now how she was doing and it put my mind at ease. Can't thank Rebecca enough for caring for Lola.

Another great stay with Rebecca for my 3 pups! They always seem happy and rested when they get home. Even my fussy eater eats when at Rebecca's.
Rebecca did an excellent job caring for our dog! She even sent us a picture of our dog while we were away which made us feel more at ease. Loved how easy this process was and how flexible Rebecca was in pick up/drop off. I will definitely use her again.

There is never a tome when I have come to pick up my dogs that they aren't just as happy to stay as they are to go! Rebecca is the best.
Ben, our spoiled schnauzer had always stayed with my parents, but this time they went with us and I knew that I didn't want to board him. I found Rebecca and she sent me pics and updates, which I really appreciated. Rebecca took good care of Ben and I would strongly recommend her and we will definately call on her again.

Thanks,
Joyce M.

Thanks again
Tahoe stayed with Rebecca for a whole week, great experience
Great as usual
Another great stay for Bailey, Duke and Cece with Rebecca... Hard to get them to leave.....
My 3 pups have stayed with Rebecca several weekends since we have moved to Chattanooga. They always seem happy and well adjusted . She is a pleasure to work with and I feel the pups are loved and played with.
Rebecca was a fantastic host. She is pleasant, her home is amazing, and she helped us when travel plans were delayed a few hours and we were late retrieving our pup. Great first experience with DogVacay.
Rebecca was wonderful with my dog. Made me feel very comfortable knowing that my Toby was in good hands during our stay in Chattanooga. I could tell Toby felt right at home in her house, because he was running around and playing as soon as we stepped in. Rebecca even texted me to give me an update on my baby. I will definitely use Rebecca's services next time I'm in Chattanooga and would highly recommend her to everyone.

Rebecca is wonderful and very accommodating! Sandy, my dog, gets so excited when she goes to her house. She sent a couple of pics also! I would definitely recommend her!!!
Thank you Rebecca for taking such good care of Chloe. Thank you for the pictures and the texts that you sent each day, it was good to know that Chloe was doing so well. I highly recommend Rebecca, she is excellent!
awesome as usual!
It had been necessary to kennel our toy poodle twice before for one and two days and each time he came home he was stressed and would take a couple of days to settle back down. When we picked him up from Happy Tails after almost two weeks he was as relaxed and calm as when we left him. Also, we had an unplanned change or plans when wife had a little set back while recovering from surgery, and Rebecca was very accommodating was gracious enough to extend Jacques’ stay with her. We were well pleased and would recommend Rebecca & Happy Tails to anyone needing a caring pet sitter.

My 3 pups stayed with Rebecca for an weekend after our recent move to Chattanooga..... They seemed happy and well cared for. Rebecca was great in accommodating her schedule to be able to watch my pup! They are booked for another weekend....
Rebecca is very friendly and a true dog lover. She has a calming demeanor and enjoys canines. Great home and big backyard for our energetic puppy, excited to book Tahoe's next trip to "camp"!
This is their 2nd stay with Rebecca and they had a nice visit.
Rebecca treats her guests like they are people. (well, aren't they?) Misha and Cupid always get excited about going on their vacation stay at "the bed and breakfast". First rate is that Rebecca also drops me an email to let me know that all is well (or not) with the kids prior to my return for pick up. She is the best.

This is the second time I have dropped Rose off at Rebecca's, she's the best!
I found Rebecca to be a very pleasant, charming person and could immediately tell that she enjoys, not only giving other animals a home away from home, but also enjoys the company of them as well. Her home is beautiful and offers a great environment that puts your mind at ease
when leaving your pets in the care of someone other than yourself.

Rebecca was very accommodating, the whole experience was awesome. She sent text pictures of Rose while we were gone, definitely a great host! Will use again and again!
Rebecca watched our dog during our wedding weekend in Chattanooga. She was great to work with and we even got a photo of our Freddy relaxing on the sofa. :) I would definitely recommend Rebecca to anyone!
Roxy and Bailey had a great time and felt right at home with Rebecca and Oliver. I like to thank them so very much from my heart that our babies were safe and cared for. We felt so at ease at our daughters wedding that I would highly recommend Rebecca to our family, friends or otherwise someone needing professional care as provided for our loved ones.
Again, Thank you..Rick, Belinda & Valorie Malone

Our doggies had a wonderful time! The location in North Chattanooga was perfect for us. We shall return!
Rebecca is truly a dog lover. Her care for our dog was outstanding! We will use her again and again.
Rebecca was a very good caretaker of our dog Susie. Susie is generally shy, and she does not eat well and is sad when out of her familiar environment. However, she adapted quickly to being with Rebecca. We are relieved and grateful for such a positive experience.

Rebecca took wonderful care of Heidi who is normally shy with strangers. Heidi really enjoyed being at Rebecca's with the other dogs. I will always use her. I am very pleased and happy we found her.
We left our two schnauzers with Rebecca for 1 week while we were in the Dominican Republic for vacation. She took great care of them. I will definitely use Rebecca again. Excellent care for my two babies!
Rebecca was wonderful with my dogs! She sent a picture via text during their stay, so I could see my babies. My dogs came home happy, which is most important!
Rebecca was a wonderful host. I felt so good with my little Jasmine staying with her. She took wonderful care of her and sent me text updates on her periodically. I would recommend Rebecca to all my friends and family, and I plan to have Rebecca watch my little yorkie again. Thanks Rebecca!!
