About Rebecca

22 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm home the majority of the time on weekdays and weekends.

My pug, Wilbur, and I have lived in SF for about 3 years. Wilbur is an incredibly friendly dog who loves the company of other dogs. We have a fenced-in large garden and patio area that the dogs can romp around in.

I'm a huge dog lover. I have volunteered in animal shelters my entire life. Wilbur is a trained therapy dog who volunteers at hospitals and the library.

Wilbur and I (and my husband, Geoff) would love to have your doggy come and stay and play!!

Unfortunately, I no longer take dogs who require wee-wee pads - only dogs that go outside. Thanks!

Sidney had a great experience with Rebecca! We received multiple photo updates and she was extremely flexible with pickup/drop off time, we would definitely use Rebecca again!
Rebecca was amazing caring for our dog Brady, sending us updates everyday. She also is incredibly responsive and flexible. We are already planning on booking her for a long vacation next month. Thanks Rebecca!
Rebecca was great! She was very responsive to all my email questions and sent me tons of cute pictures of my little guy. He clearly felt at ease with her and came home totally pooped from all the attention and activity -- my signs of great care-givers! I'd bring him back any time!
Rebecca was great! Took my frenchie in and loved her little guy too. She also sent me pics throughout the night.
Rebecca was a wonderful with Lucy. She was super accommodating with last minute scheduling, the fact the that my dog still smelled a bit like skunk, and all food sensitivities. Really relieved to have found a great dog-sitter!
Rebecca is my preferred and #1 choice on DogVacay, my dog loves staying w/ Rebecca and her cute pooch Wilbur!
Rebecca was great! Super dog friendly apt and our dog loves seeing her. Would definitely book with Rebecca again.
I always appreciate the flexibility that Rebecca shows upon pick up or drop off. On pick up day, I realized I left my phone at home and was going to be late. Thankfully Rebecca accommodated my tardiness!
Rebecca was wonderful. She was able to watch Zoe last minute and kept me updated with photos every day. Zoe promptly fell asleep when we got home, it's clear she was busy and happy all weekend. Thanks again Rebecca!
I've used Rebecca too many times to review! Needless to say she's my favorite host.
Rebecca and her dog Wilbur are my dog's friends! My dog lights up when she realizes she is going to Rebecca's house.
I appreciate that Rebecca makes the pick up and drop off easy: she will either come to the curb to meet me if I am driving, or walk a block to meet in the park.
My pug had a wonderful stay with Rebecca! I appreciated Rebecca's quick response to messages, flexibility with drop off and pick up, and the daily photo updates.
Oliver had a great time at Rebecca's as always!
Rebecca is a solid and reliable host who always cares for Gigi in a loving and playful way. She sends me daily photos of her walks and play-times with Gigi, and is very communicative and understanding of GIgi's needs. I highly recommend Rebecca!
Rebecca even makes herself available on holidays like New Year's Eve. Thanks Rebecca!
Rebecca is a gem. Her apartment is safe, light, and has great courtyard space. I feel totally comfortable leaving my dog there.
I've been using Rebecca as my regular host for almost a year now. In general, she keeps Scarlett one night a week. Rebecca is my dog's second home!
As you might be able to tell from the number of reviews I leave for Rebecca, she's a great host!
Rebecca is very reliable and kind, two essential traits in a dog boarder! She always has a smile on her face.
Rebecca is my go-to host! She is incredibly flexible with pick up and drop off times, which I appreciate.
Rebecca is a great host! My dog loves staying at her house with Wilbur.
Rebecca is GREAT! Its super helpful that she only lives a few blocks away too :) She is the nicest person in the world, and makes sure the dogs are never alone for more than a few hours, and lets you know when she is going to be in and out of her place. She followed our instructions for feeding our pup and got him lots of exercise! I highly recommend her and will definitely let Indy go on vacay with her again!
Rebecca, as always, has been an amazing host for us. Louie loves seeing her and I'm always at ease when we drop Louie off. Thanks for taking care of our little guy :)
Awesome experience! Rebecca was super responsive even with my last minute reservation. Oliver had such a great time and napped all the next day.
rebecca was a wonderful dog sitter! she sent pics while we were out, and it made us so happy to know our dog was in good hands and had made new friends. dumpling came home happy and pooped! thanks rebecca!
Great overall experience...a bit of a shock that Rebecca had a dog of her own, as I had filtered my search to say "no other dogs in home" but it turned out that my dog accepted her sweet little "Wilbur" and everything turned out great, even though my dog is so not social with other dogs. We were a bit of nervous during the day whether our dog was ok, and we texted, upon Rebecca sent us an immediate update and some re-assuring pictures. Nice host and a great experience.
Our dog, Tooter, has stayed with Rebecca several times now. She is accommodating, friendly, and attentive. We received daily updates, and knew that Tooter was enjoying himself while we were gone. Moreover, Rebecca's flexibility made it super easy for us to schedule pickups // drop-offs. I strongly recommend Rebecca!
Rebecca was a wonderful caretaker for our two little pugs (and they are a handful)! We agonized about leaving them while we were overseas, and she made it so much easier with daily photos and updates. We know they had a great time, and would wholeheartedly recommend Rebecca.
Rebecca is amazing. My dog Tooter loves her and now he has a new friend named Wilbur.
Rebecca was so great with Max! We had pictures of Max daily during his stay. The best part was also that Rebecca knew husky breed well. We and Max appreciate all!
Rebecca is always reliable and my dog Scarlett loves her; I use Rebecca exclusively!
This was our first time using DogVacay. We were wanted to visit a museum in San Francisco during our trip, and needed someone to watch our pal Barney. Rebecca was great! She was very nice and assured me that Barney was in good hands. She even took some pictures of Barney during his stay! There were a few dogs staying with her during that time as well, and they all seemed to be having a great time! We are loving our first experience with DogVacay and will definitely use it again!
This was our dog's third stay with this host and, as always, Rebecca was wonderful. Our plans changed at the last minute because of the "Pineapple Express" storm coming through the area and Rebecca was very flexible and accommodating with us. She's also very diligent about sending photo updates, which always put us at ease. I would HIGHLY recommend her - she is excellent.
Rebecca is super responsive, and she was very patient with me (first time Dog Vacay user) and even more so with my dog, Max (who suffers from a bit of separation anxiety. She sent pictures every day and let me know how Max was with her dog, and other dogs :-) She is terrific, and I would highly recommend her.
Rebecca has been a wonderful, reliable host for our dog Rorie. She was accommodating for last minute schedule changes and was very communicative during our trip, sharing multiple photos of Rorie each night of her stay. Our pooch is usually very shy and doesn't like to be away from us for too long, but to our surprise, she really enjoyed staying with Rebecca - so much so that every time we pass her apartment complex on the way to Alamo Square, Rorie tries to lead us in! We will definitely look to use Rebecca anytime we need a dog sitter in the future.
Rebecca is friendly and accommodating of my last-minute requests. I love the photos she sends of my dog.
Rebecca was so great! She kept us very informed on how our pup was doing everyday by sending pictures of them home and out-n-about. Bubba was exhausted for two days after his stay from all the fun they had! I would recommend her in a heartbeat!!
Rebecca has a cute clean house and I felt very confident about leaving my pooch with her. She took photos of my dog along with a note to let me know everything was OK. Thumbs up!
Rebecca is so great! I have some nervous pups and she took great care of them. She also sent me pics every night so that I knew they were doing ok. She even had a family emergency mid-vacay and made sure that the Dog Vacay team was notified and they helped me find another host. Can't thank her enough for watching my babies and will definitely be happy to have her host Tito and Jasmine again!
Kensi really enjoyed her time at Rebecca's feeling safe and home with the presence of friendly and adorable Wilbur. Rebecca is extremely professional and trustworthy. I would definitely leave Kensi with Rebecca and Wilbur again.
Dakota had an amazing time with Rebecca again! She sent me an update every night on what they did. Went to the park and lots of walks. I'm so happy to have found Rebecca! Her place is now Dakota's home away from home :)
Dakota had another amazing time with Rebecca. I got pictures and updates every night on what the two of them did. And she went above and beyond when I had to extend my trip by a day. Would definitely recommend Rebecca to anyone in need of a dog sitter and would like piece of mind while they're away!
Terrific host! She sent us adorable pictures of our dogs. Would highly recommend.
We booked our day with Rebecca the day before July 4th, and she was really nice and flexible. Simba was exhausted by the time he got home that night. We would definitely leave him with Rebecca again.
Pocket always has a great time at Rebecca's and we appreciate the nightly pictures of his adventures. He's been sleeping ever since he got home, clearly got a lot of exercise and excitement!
Rebecca was an incredible host. Not only did Rupert love staying with her (I determined this from the photos and updates she sent me, as well as his happy demeanor upon my return), but I also had some serious travel troubles that delayed my return multiple times and Rebecca handled these inconveniences with the utmost professionalism. She was flexible, cheerful and accommodating. She's definitely a dog lover and her pup, Wilbur, is very sweet and cute.
She shows that really loves dogs. Her daily pictures follow up are amazing to keep you close your pet. Very understanding when any problem occurs. I really recommend her for your pet vacations.
Rebecca was nothing short of awesome. I needed to find a sitter in a short time, so I scheduled a meet n greet and walked over to her place. She was very friendly, and I felt instantly comfortable. Every night while I was gone, Rebecca emailed me an update on what they did during the day, and a few pictures of Dakota. It put me at ease knowing he was getting so much care. 10/10 I would definitely recommend Rebecca!
It was all smooth, and our dogs were calm and happy after a night there. Rebecca sent pictures and updates, and got them out for good amounts of exercise. She lives right by Alamo Square, so it's a great set up. We'll definitely use her again!
Rebecca was an incredibly sweet and warm host. She greeted my 11 year-old mixed pup Gigi with open arms during the meet and greet and her dog Wilbur did as well! Gigi had a wonderful weekend playing with Wilbur, as I saw in the photos that Rebecca sent every evening that we were traveling. She has plenty of comfy space for the pups along with plenty of treats and TLC. I highly recommend Rebecca to care for your beloved pets when you need a great sitter!
Pocket had a great time with Rebecca. We appreciated the daily pictures of his adventures.
This was one of the best experiences I have had with a dog sitter. Rebecca did such a great job of updating us and sending nightly pictures of our pup. I could rest easy knowing Penny was in great hands!
Rebecca was wonderful! She was easy to communicate with, very flexible, & gave me updates and pictures to let me know how my Hazel was doing. She was great with Hazel and even took her for some playtime in the park. I couldn't have asked for a better sitter for my girl and I will definitely call Rebecca again the next time we visit San Francisco!
Rebecca was amazing! She was able to accommodate us last minute and everything was wonderful. She sent many pictures and updates. We will be using her everytime we go away!
Rebecca was the perfect host. She has a roof deck where the pups can let some energy out and was happy to accommodate my dogs raw chicken diet, which is admittedly a little gross. She sent nightly emails that recapped the day's activities and included a few pictures. I will look forward to her looking after Boone again in the future and would highly recommend her to anyone.
What a great first experience with DogVacay. I am so glad to have found Rebecca. Now I can enjoy and relax on a vacation knowing our beloved pooch is as content as can be. Everything about Rebecca was first rate. Her response time, her home set up, and most of all, her genuine love for dogs. I couldn't be anymore satisfied.
Rocky loved his stay with Rebecca and Wilbur! Rebecca took great care of him and sent daily updates/pictures. Rocky came home a very happy pup! Would absolutely recommend Rebecca
Rebecca was great! She sent us photos and kept us updated. I would definitely recommend her!
Clark had another great stay with Rebecca and Wilbur. Rebecca was flexible when I had to drop Clark off early and easy to communicate with throughout. Clark is a bit of a picky eater and when Clark's food was getting robbed by the other dogs Rebecca hand fed him to make sure he got enough. Which I really appreciated. Rebecca also sent me a number of very handsome photos of Clark lounging on the bed and couch and playing with the other dogs. Clark had a great time and I would certainly choose Rebecca again.
My dog runs to Rebecca's door each time and doesn't look back, which is all the more amazing as she spends all her time at home glued to my side. She loves hanging out with Rebecca and Wilbur whenever she can and it puts a spring in her step.
Once again, Rebecca was fabulous with Scout. She always sends little photo updates each day, which reassures me she's having a great time. Scout never wants to leave!
Another awesome stay with Rebecca!
Our dog stayed with Rebecca and Wilbur on and off throughout the summer, and was so happy. She couldn't wait to see Wilbur each time she realized where she was heading, and we could relax knowing she was at the best imaginable summer camp. Rebecca diligently sent us daily photos plus the occasional video of Trixie having fun, which helped us as we missed her so much. The kids looked forward to seeing the photos every morning when they woke up! I feel like Rebecca has become her second mother; she was so kind and accommodating, and Trixie came home a more sociable dog after making so many new friends. In future we would ask Rebecca to have Trixie above any other person; we know we can trust her and that our dog feels safe and relaxed in her home.
My Brussels Griffon Clark had a fab time with Rebecca and Wilbur. I got photos of clark lounging around with Wilbur each day and great updates from Rebecca. I would definitely recommend Rebecca to any and all dog owners.
Rebecca is a lovely and wonderful host. She is so patient and loving with dogs and we always feel comfortable leaving our dog with her. Lady enjoys her stays with Rebecca so much she often does not want to leave!
Rebecca was fantastic! She took great care of Jack and was flexible to work around my schedule. Highly recommended
Rebecca was fabulous! We were out of the country on vacation and it was great to know that he was having a great time with her and the other pups she was sitting. We actually had trouble getting emails where we were at, so Rebecca also sent us texts with updates and pictures to let us know how he was doing. She was also really flexible with the drop-off and pick-up times, which was so helpful when coordinating our travel plans.

We will definitely reach out to Rebecca for future stays !
I have two dogs that spent a full week with Rebecca while i was on my honeymoon. Rebecca took fabulous care of my pups!!! i don't think they've ever had so much fun! She sent me pictures and notes everyday so I could see them while i was away and hear about their days. it was such a wonderful email to receive! not only did it put my mind at ease and allow me to enjoy my honeymoon but it made me extremely happy to see that my puppies were also "on vacation" and having the time of their lives!!!! I will, no doubt, have my girls stay with Rebecca again!!!!! i HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The best thing about Lulu hanging out with Rebecca....she comes home exhausted! A tired dog is a happy dog and that is true with Lulu. She's been to Rebecca's a few times and as soon as she reaches the lobby, she'll bark in excitement ready to go upstairs to play. Rebecca's apartment and dog run on the roof is the perfect atmosphere for our little pup. We will 100% be using Rebecca in the future!!
Rebecca and Wilbur were great hosts! The dogs got along so well and had a lot of fun playing at the dog run. Rebecca put us at ease through the whole process - she was very flexible, friendly, and clearly loves dogs! Also the e-mail updates were great. When we got home, our dog looked a little sad that her vacay was over (or she was just tired out from all that fun)!
As first time Dog Vacay users, Rebecca made us feel very confident that Rocky was in great hands. She is an incredibly friendly, out-going and caring dog-lover and I would definitely recommend her to anyone in need of a sitter.
Dog Vacay is such a great option for people who love their dogs and don't want to leave them in boarding facilities that are overcrowded, overpriced and don't offer the one-on-one attention you receive with this company.
Rocky was so happy staying with Rebecca and Wilbur I think he was sad to leave his new friends. We will definitely be booking with Rebecca again!!!!
Rebecca is the best! She was great with Pugsley's first boarding experience and sent updates every night! I felt like Pugsley was in good hands and I know Pugsley had a blast with her and Wilbur. She is extremely flexible, and I highly recommend her for your dog boarding needs! Two paws up! :)
Our pup had a great time with Rebecca. We got lovely updates and some great pictures. We'll definitely have him stay with her again.
Rebecca was great - very friendly and considerate, and she provided many updates!
Rebecca and Wilbur are wonderful!! Our pup, Biscoff, stayed with them for 2 weeks, and we could tell during the meet and greet that he would be in very good hands while we were away. We loved the daily email updates, and knowing that he was comfortable and enjoying his stay put us at ease when we were really missing him. The photos of him with his new friends made us chuckle too! Rebecca is so nice and takes good care of everyone, and Wilbur is such a sweet and calm dog (which we are hoping has rubbed off a little on hyper Biscoff). We highly recommend Rebecca, and will definitely book with her again!
Rebecca was terrific - Cole really enjoyed his stay with her and i enjoyed daily updates that gave me a lot of comfort. Rebecca is totally professional and accomodating to our schedules. Thanks so much, we'll be seeing her again!
Rebecca is fantastic. Emma had a great time again with Wilbur and friends. She even pulled on the leash when I dropped her off, eager to have fun during another dogvacay.
Rebecca was very helpful. My greyhound Gia had a great time staying with her.
Beta had another great stay with Rebecca. This was his second time with her and Wilbur and we loved the photo updates. We were really pleased when we took Beta to Rebecca's apartment as he dashed right to her door and seemed pleased to be back! He seems to have had a great time playing with Wilbur and the other dogs. We highly recommend Rebecca and Wilbur as hosts!
Rebecca is awesome. Enzo (my 2 y/o French Bulldog) had a great weeklong stay with her and Wilbur. Loved getting all the updates with photos each night. Enzo made himself right at home and came home totally happy. Can't recommend Rebecca enough!
I left my pup overnight for a last minute business trip and everything went great!

Rebecca and Wilbur are awesome! Rebecca is super friendly and Wilbur may be the most stable dog I've ever met.

For the first time ever I actually was comfortable enough to completely forget about my dog. I'm usually neurotic and I rarely leave her with anyone so that says a lot!

After a million flight delays and last minute changes (which Rebecca was completely accommodating over) I finally picked her up and she put up a fight leaving the apartment!

The doormen are all great, building and apartment are fantastic (I'm jealous). I would 100% without a doubt book with her again.
We contacted Rebecca at the last minute in a panic. She arranged a meet and greet and made us all feel comfortable.

She asked us to bring Cody the night before we left on an early flight so we could take all the time we needed getting him settled. Every night that we were gone there was a friendly report on how the day went with pictures of our pup.

Cody is 8 and has allergies that require meds and lotions. That was never a problem. Rebecca and Wilbur made Cody feel at home and took great care of him. Having a dog run in the building is a big bonus!

We are going to be out of town again in February and are happy to say that Cody will be hanging out with his new friends while we are gone... and we can relax knowing he is in good hands!
I highly recommend Rebecca and Wilbur. Rebecca was great to communicate with both before and during my dog's visit. "PJ" sent me frequent emails describing his day. The apartment is beautiful and pet-friendly with plenty of places for a dog to get cozy. I received photos of my little guy and Wilbur hanging out on the couch, in bed, and playing with a neighbor's dog on the roof. PJ came home healthy and happy.
Rebecca was great! She sent wonderful updates with photos. I did not have to worry at all. Emma had a great time with Wilbur, Rebecca's sweet pug. Professional and fun.
Rebecca was great and Spud seemed very happy with his stay. We will definitely use her again!
This was Scout's first weekend sleepover and boy was I nervous! Rebecca made me feel like my dog would be in really great hands, and she definitely delivered. Scout had so much fun! (I just brought her home and she is already passed out next to me, absolutely pooped from all the excitement!)

Rebecca was so prompt about coordinating with me, and she was so incredibly accommodating of all my requests for Scout's care. I absolutely loved the email updates she sent me with pics of Scout's day every night... made me feel as if I was right there with them. I would 100% recommend boarding your dog with her!
This was our first time using dogvacay and we were nervous to leave our pup Lily, but Rebecca made us feel comfortable right away! We stopped by for a meet and greet and confirmed our reservation very soon after. While we were away Rebecca sent us pictures and a really detailed email on how Lily was doing. We had a few questions while we were away and contacted Rebecca and she got back to us within minutes. It was so nice to feel comfortable while we were away for the night and will definitely book with Rebecca again!
We left our pup with Rebecca for almost two weeks over the holidays while we were overseas. She was great at sending us pictures from the day every night, and it looked like our pup had a great time! The fact that she has a small dog-run on the roof is a great bonus, and makes it easier for them to meet and hand with other pups. By the end, we were worried he wouldn't want to come back home with us.

A great experience all around, we'd definitely say it was a holiday for our dog as well, and we'd board him with Rebecca again.
Rebecca was absolutely amazing! Not only did she take great care of Owen, but she sent nightly email updates that included photos of the pups! She and Wilbur were so welcoming, Owen really was on a "dogvacay" while I was away. I think he already misses Wilbur!
Rebecca was a great host! Cody had a great time staying with her this weekend and is exhausted from all the play time he got! An active doggy means he wasn't even thinking about missing me! Rebecca gave plenty of updates and even lets the little guys cuddle up in bed with her!
Thanks for a wonderful weekend.
My dog stayed with Rebecca and her dog Wilbur for 4 nights. They took care of my baby very well!
Rebecca responded to my inquiries very fast even though she was out of the country at that time.
She did everything what I had asked for and my dog came back home very happy!
She sent me daily note with photos of my dog and Wilbur how they were getting along. I always worry how my dog would react to the new environment but she gave me peace of mind.
I will definitely go back to Rebecca and Wilbur again! No doubt about it!
Rebecca and Wilbur were great!! I got daily emails and it looked like Manford was having a great time on vacation. He was exhausted from the activities and when I picked him up, he was sad to go! I will definitely use them again in the future!
