About Rhonda

28 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello, my name is Rhonda! I am currently now attending ABC the animal behavior college on line to become a service dog trainer and nutritionist as well as a doggie masseuse. Well our day begins with a morning swim, followed by breakfast and a little TV. After all of the human stuff is done we play fetch,play in and out of the pool,and do a lot of sunbathing! My minis love the jacuzzi not so much the big ones! There is also a dog park at the end of our street if that is your babies preference. I am a 50 year old woman Happily married to a Veteran of our Marine Corps. He wanted to relax in our older days which is why we are here in the Las Vegas area! Other than the fact that I have had a crew of four legged children, I have been a foster mommy, rescue mommy and have volunteered for a ton of pitbull rescues! I also did about 5 years of pet sitting and doggy daycare! I am the strange dog lady! I am also available for people who brought their dogs on their trip to Las Vegas and just want to be able to enjoy activities while knowing their dogs can have a place to hang other than their hotel room alone. I'm the perfect K9 hangout buddy if even for only a few hours! My goal is for your furbaby to have just as enjoyable vacation as you! I love what I do, its my passion as well as my career. I am the Las Vegas dog whisperer, and I am here to take the worries out of your travels. Always available 24/7 no such thing as to short of notice,my doors are always open for more visitors! We are located 15 minutes from the strip and are able to pick up as well!

Thank you Rhonda for welcoming our boy Buster into your home. It made our trip so much easier and relaxing knowing he was being taken care of.
We left our two furry girls with Rhonda and her Husband the week of Thanksgiving. Clearly these two people love dogs! They were happy and pooped out when we brought them home
I just want to say Thank you to both Rhonda and her husband for taking care of my girl Roxy! Once I arrived and met Rhonda and her husband, I immediately knew I was leaving Roxy my 1 year old boxer with the right people! on thanksgiving day! Rhonda even prepared some dog friendly food for the dogs for thanksgiving! Which I am sure Roxy enjoyed. Rhonda answers very quickly to email questions and is very accommodating and very flexible.

Lola had a great time playing with the other bulldogs and dogs there. She got in a lot of play time and definitely slept good that night. I will definitely use them again.
I would use Rhonda again. She knows dogs and gives them the attention they need. My dog needed allot of attention from her so the first night she slept on the fouton with him. . Ted, our Dog is an easy dog and she said that she really enjoyed him. I received pictures every day with him playing tug which he loves. Pictures of him crashed out on a big pillow and allot more.

Rhonda and Rey came to our rescue when I needed an impromptu sitter for our two furbabies. Not only did she respond within 10 minutes of my first email, but she also let me know that I could bring them by that day (which is was we needed)!

Jet (our lab) has a tendency to be afraid of other dogs until he's used to them, but R&R put my mind at ease.

They'll definitely be going back for another visit soon!

Thanks!
T & AJ

I felt beyond comfortable leaving my dog with Rhonda for those 3 days. She is amazing at what she does and I would not hesitate to think twice before recommending her services to anyone I know. Thank you so much, you are awesome!
There are literally NO words to say just how thankful I am for Rhonda. She was available last minute (and I mean, last minute), for an early drop off (6:30 am) for an entire day (5:00 pm). I had to go out of town so I was even more of a wreck about leaving my baby. She was kind enough to send me picture updates and even sent a video. Tackle came home happy, fed & tired! Would not hesitate to recommend her and have already rebooked another daycare date! Thank you Rhonda!!

Loved her!! It was my first time leaving my boys and I was a nervous wreck but Rhonda and her husband put my mind at ease and took great care of my pups. They were running around having a blast when I picked them up and were pooped the whole ride home afterwards. I will definitely book with her again next time we visit.

Rhonda and Ray were just amazing! They took such good care of our little fur ball. She sent me updated pictures and texts, which made me feel calm and allowed me to enjoy our weekend in vegas. If you are looking for someone that will treat your pup like their own go ahead and book Rhonda and Ray. Their place was clean and such a doggie haven. They just have the biggest hearts. Thank your guys for watching Jimmy Dean for the weekend!

Rhonda and Ray are fantastic dog caregivers. Our English bulldog, Jazz, stayed and played in Vegas with Rhonda's family for a week. We could totally relax and enjoy ourselves knowing Jazz was not just being taken care of, but was able to be free to sleep, play and socialize with her dogs. I will never consider any type of dog kennel option again. This was Jazz' home away from home, and he really didn't want to leave when we came to pick him up. That says it all!

This was my first DogVacay experience and Rhonda and Ray were awesome! Their dog ranch has tons of room and their experience was evident as they managed multiple dogs with ease. My dog Yoshi can be difficult with new dogs and there was never a problem, and in the end I"m so glad she got the socialization time with other dogs. I would highly recommend Rhonda.

Rhonda was wonderful with our Delilah! Delilah is non stop energy and she seemed to have a wonderful time playing with all the other pups! We are so happy to know we have someone who will take great care of her when we go out of town again! Thanks Rhonda! :)

This was my first Dog Vacay boarding experience. Rhonda, her husband and furry family were just wonderful! She kept me updated with how things were going and all the fun stuff that my two pups did while my husband and I were 2500 miles away. I never had one moment where I worried our thought whether or not they were okay. I could not be happier with the services I received! My husband and I had some very sensitive family matters to tend to and with dogs in Rhonda's hands, we were able to focus on those matters without any added stress concerning our pups! Thank You Rhonda and Dog Vacay for allowing me to find North Paws Ranch in Las Vegas!!!

Rhonda was great! Boots and Odie seemed very happy with their stay and I would recommend her to anyone. Loved the photos she sent too!
Paco and I couldn't have asked for more!! Rhonda took in my old man, Paco, and made him feel right at home. He came back with smiles on his old face, and with all the tail wags. I would recommend Rhonda to anyone and everyone.
Rhonda was great! She was super responsive, kept us updated about our dog's stay, and Sova had a blast staying with her, swimming in the pool and hanging out with Rhonda and her family. Would happily bring Sova back again, and highly recommend her to anyone coming through Las Vegas!

Rhonda was great and flexible! I can tell Moosie enjoyed her stay. Thanks!
Lucky enjoyed his stay with Rhonda and Ray, It was my first time using Dog Vacay and we picked the best person to watch my baby! I will use her again in the future! She is amazing I totally recommend. If and when I need a sitter, I will definitely use her. Everything was easy and my baby was so happy ! Thank you guys for everything.

Sandy had a blast. She was able to socialize with other dogs during her stay. Rhonda and Ray invite each dog they look after as their very own. Dogs get to be inside and outside around two people that know what DogVacay is all about.
My dogs had a great first stay at Rhonda's! It was easy to coordinate drop-off and pickup times, and I received some pictures at the end of their stay of my dogs and their new dog friends. You can tell that Rhonda and her husband are really dog people who treat the ones they babysit as their own. We've already booked their next stay!

I just moved to Vegas & needed a sitter while I flew back east for a family trip. This was my first time using DV, as well as having someone that wasn't family look after my dog. Rhonda & her husband were so nice & welcoming to me & Logan. It really put me at ease because I knew right away he was going to have a great time. She sent updates of Logan throughout his vaca & always responded promptly when I reached out. I had no worries or concerns at all during my trip, & definitely will book with Rhonda again in the future. Thank you so much Rhonda!

Very nice couple who watched our two dogs. My youngest immediately took to Ray and seemed very comfortable in the home and with them. Our oldest had a bit of anxiety but that seemed to have passed according to the pictures we received showing they both seem playful and comfortable during their stay.

Mayhem enjoyed her stay with Rhonda! It was our first time using Dog Vacay and we picked the best person to watch our pitbull terrier puppy! We will use her again in the future! 5 stars!!
Fonzie, our dog, loved staying at Rhonda and her husband's place during our trip. Their place has a backyard, a spacious inside for Fonzie, and a pool which he, Fonzie, definitely adores swimming in. They also allow dogs onto furniture, and Fonzie often is found on some kind of furniture. Next trip we take, Fonzie will, no doubt, stay with Rhonda and her husband.

Ronda was great ! If and when I need a sitter, I will definitely use her. Communicated with me and put me at ease. Everything was easy and my babies were happy !
Amazing service! Will definitely be back !! Updates everything, just whole hearted people
Rhonda and Ray were Awesome. They took great care of our dog over two days. I would use them again.
Rhonda and her husband watched our two dogs (a dachshund & pit bull) over the 4th of July weekend while we were in Las Vegas with family. I get a little bit nervous when I have to board my dogs with someone new, but Rhonda put me at ease right away. She really knows her stuff! Our dogs are still tired from their weekend, so they must have had an awesome time playing with their new friends! We will definitely be back!

Rhonda was amazing. I was worried to leave my dog for the first time with a new sitter. I recently moved from LA and had the same sitter for 6 years. But after the meet and greet I knew Cinnamon was in good hands! She sent me messages and pictures of him while I was away and he was happy as a clam when I returned. I will definitely be leaving him with Rhonda every time I need a sitter. Thank you Rhonda for taking such good care of my baby.

Ronda and her dogs are great! Her dogs were very accommodating to our spunky chihuahua mix and she enjoyed her stay very much.
Zoe had a great time with Rhonda and her husband. She is a shy dog and didn't really interact much with the other dogs but was able to hang out with Rhonda's husband instead. She also got to take a swim...her favorite thing. Rhonda was very accommodating to my flexible schedule, also. Next time we are in Vegas I will definitely call on Rhonda again.

Rhonda was so sweet to take care of our dog, Luc, for one night. My husband and I were moving from Chicago to California and wanted to stop in Vegas for a night and have a little fun. We didn't want to leave luc alone in a hotel by himself, so Rhonda was gracious enough to look after him. Unfortunately he was stressed out from the long car rides and was very scared and became aggressive. Rhonda was so nice about everything and didn't make it a big deal. We felt horrible that Luc had nipped at her. I am so grateful that even when he was in this state, she was kind to him and still took care of him for the whole night. Thank you again so much Rhonda! Again, we are so sorry for Lucs behavior.

From the first moment of our meet and greet to the moment we picked our puppies up after our trip we felt comfortable! I was incredibly nervous to leave our 6 month olds, because of course no one will love your babies like you do! They proved that theory wrong!
Our pups took to Rhonda and Ray right away and quickly made friends with the other dogs in the house.
WhIle we were on vacation Rhonda sent pictures and videos of our dogs swimming! They loved it!
I cannot express the comfort in knowing our precious puppies are loved and cared for when we go away! Rhonda and Ray truly love what they do! Calli and Cooper now have a home away from home and none of us could be happier!!

Rhonda and her husband are great people that clearly love animals and are in the right line of business! We were really nervous as this was first bordering experience for us. They knew dogs were very attached and even let them sleep with them! I wouldn't hesitate in calling them in future.

Yes and "of course" are the only words Rhonda knows. She is thoughtful, helpful and flexible.

Joey had a great time learning how to swim in their pool and came home tired from having such a good time. Joey will be going back in a few weeks for another visit!

Rhonda was a wonderful sitter , PatrĂ³n came back very happy, healthy and seems he had a lot of fun !
You took wonderful care of my dog, I feel she will be happy to come back when the time comes to stay with you again. Thanks for the special loving care you gave her.
We rescued our GSD, Ava almost a year ago. In that time we have never left her. With an emergency trip necessary we needed to find a place for Ava Thursday afternoon. I contacted Rhonda and she was so flexible! After dropping Ava off Thursday afternoon we headed for the freeway. Only 30 min had passed and we were already getting pictures of Ava. She was happy! We continued to get pictures for the entire time we were gone. This put our minds at ease and were able to deal with our family emergency. Rhonda and Ray are the best!!! They even groomed her!! When we picked her up Sunday afternoon she was just as perfect as when we dropped her off. Ava will never be boarded at a public facility. Do yourself and your fur baby a favor and have someone take care of your loved one that Really does care. Thank you Rhonda & Ray.

Rhonda is a great sitter and Sam really loves her. I finally found someone I can feel comfortable leaving my dog with.
Rhonda is amazing! She watched our 4 month old labrador and kept us updated with pictures and videos the whole time. She fed her exactly how I requested and even taught her to swim in their pool which the dogs have full access to if they would like. She gave her treats and since our puppy was teething she had bones all over the house for her to chew on. Our dog smelled amazing when we picked her up so I'm guessing she got a bath which we really appreciated. Overall it was a great experience we will definitely be returning. Luna had so much fun and was pooped when we picked her up! Definitely would recommend Rhonda for your fur babies.

Rhonda (and her husband) were just sooo awesome! They have a wonderful dog palace (with pool) and were super accommodating. I was in town for business and with my Zsofie. But she needed somewhere to stay while I worked. Finding Rhond was a godsend. Thank you Thank you. If you need someone to care for your pup in Vegas...look no further.

Rhonda was amazing! I was gone for a week and she updated me every day with pictures and videos of my babies. Chloe had so much fun that she was actually upset about having to get in the car to go home. Rhonda was knowledgable, professional, and kind. I would definitely utilize her services again in the future!

Great experience! Are beagle was well cared for and really happy!
Rhonda was absolutely great! I was passing through the area for the evening on a long road trip and she made sure my pup was well taken care of and given lots of love and exercise. I received lots of picture/video updates and was comforted knowing my dog was in good hands. I will definitely bring my dog back if I'm ever in the area again, but would highly recommend Rhonda and her services!

Immaculate Generous Space for Dog Heaven.
I so appreciated working with Rhonda and her husband who took my dogs and were super flexible with time owing to a doggy emergency. They ended up taking extra care with one of my dog's injuries even letting her sleep with them to keep her immobile.
What struck me so strongly was how immaculate this generously apportioned space was. Not a single whiff of dog in the place despite a number of dogs in house.
I'm grateful that I found them, and strongly recommend them to others. Rhonda was flexible with an extended day, and a late arrival. My dogs were happy, healthy and well cared for.
thanks!

Rhonda is fantastic! Not only is she super knowledgeable on dogs and their behavior she is so sweet. Her and her husband were there 24/7 with my boy Jack and was sure to send frequent picture updates. Her own three dogs are also very sweet and my shy boy got along great. Highly recommend Rhonda!

Rhonda & her husband Ray were awesome. They took my 13 year old 70 lb dog over the holidays. I received numerous photos and updates while he was there and he was as happy as can be when I picked him up. I would reccomend them to anyone.
Rhonda is great with dogs! She watched our dachshund with separation anxiety issues over Christmas and it was wonderful! She sent us pictures and updates every day. I would highly recommend her.
We left Our dog Logan with Rhonda over the Christmas week. We were nervous because it was the first time we have ever left our dog with anyone. However, after scheduling a free appointment to visit, I had zero reservations about leaving him with Rhonda and her husband.

They sent us pictures of Logan, and made him feel right at home! The house was very big and he was allowed to run around outside as much as he wanted. Logan really enjoyed himself, and I will definitely be using her again. I Would highly recommend anyone leaving their pet here if you are looking for someone who is a true dog lover.

So happy to have found Rhonda in Vegas! She was quick to respond to any concerns. It's obvious she's a true animal lover and I immediately felt comfortable leaving my dogs with her. Thank you Rhonda!
Rhonda and Ray are excellent hosts. At the last minute we thought we may have to cancel our trip, but Rhonda informed me that our time of arrival would not be a problem, so we moved ahead with our plans.
Arriving late, we found the hosts friendly and receptive to our needs. We were given a tour of the home, met the resident pups, and were shown our pup's sleeping quarters.
Rhonda's home is clean and very dog friendly, the backyard is something to see: a good size yard with a pool and a Jacuzzi, which, I am told the dogs enjoy.
During boarding time, we received pictures and updates. Pickup time: Our dogs were packed up and ready to go.
This is dog loving family!!!
Thank you R&R!

I was very delighted with the experience I had with Rhonda and her family. They were so sweet and kind, I could tell right away they are dog lovers. My pups had a wonderful Vacay with her at her home. They especially enjoyed her pool!! I give her 5 stars and would definitely use her again when I come to Vegas. Also a special thanks for her willingness to bring my pups to my wedding all bathed and smelling good to greet my guests. Wonderful experience!!!

This is the fifth time Rhonda and Ray have taken care of our fur babies and they love it there. When I mention "we're going to Rhonda's" they squeal with delight and pull me down the hall towards the exit like sled dogs. I was pressed for time this last trip and didn't get a chance to bathe my little one before dropping her off at Rhondas. When we picked her up she smelled so amazing - Rhonda had given her a lavender massage! :)

Rhonda was over the TOP AWESOME with my big boy Cody! Cody had an AMAZING time swimming and playing with the other pups! I highly recommend Rhonda for pool loving pups
Rhonda and Ray are always so wonderful and accommodating with our fur-kids. They always seem very happy after their stay. They are great people and will take excellent care of your dogs.
Rhonda and Ray are absolutely amazing and definitely saved our mini-vacation. My wife and I headed out to Las Vegas for a week of exploring with our dog and decided to leave him with a sitter on the weekend..

Our 1 year old dog, Ghost (about 60lbs), randomly started people-guarding (horrible timing!) against other dogs and it was clear that we needed a sitter who could properly control the outbursts. Unlike many other sitters, this wonderful team knows and understands why dogs are acting out and are able to properly monitor and control the situation. All weekend my phone was filled was great videos of Ghost playing with their pack of 6 other awesome dogs - mostly swimming in their large pool :)

Their property has plenty of room to run around, a potty area, and an in-ground person pool that all the dogs love. If your dog isn't a swimmer...there is a great chance they will be when they leave. When we left Ghost he would swim, but didn't enjoy it and when we picked him up he was diving in!

We can't possibly say enough good things about Rhonda and Ray, the next time we go to LV we will definitely be dropping Ghost off on the weekend!

Rhonda and Ray were such amazing hosts to our two puppies. We moved across country and they stayed with Rhonda and Ray while we found our new home. We really appreciate how much you cared for them!
Rhonda and her husband were so great! Maddie instantly felt comfortable in their home during our meet and greet, she got along great with all their dogs. Rhonda also kept Maddie one more night since I didn't get home much later than expected from my vacation (insane accident on highway). The energy in their home was a mix of relaxed and playful, the resident dogs are so happy and cute, just good vibes all around.

Rhonda was very responsive and accommodating to our needs and so nice. Our dogs seemed to be very comfortable with Rhonda right off the bat. I had absolutely no concerns with leaving our fur babies in her care and felt very confident that they were in a safe and comfortable home care environment.

We recently moved to Las Vegas and it's always scary to find a pet sitter in a new state especially when our babies always used to stay with grandma & grandpa when we had to leave them. Rhonda responded to my inquiry very quickly and immediately made me feel comfortable even before we met. Rhonda and Ray were so welcoming and have great space for pet sitting. We were very happy to receive photos and updates while we were gone and when we picked them up I'm pretty sure the dogs wabted to stay longer! Rhonda even recommended a cream for their dry noses and gave them puppy massages while they were there so it made us feel like they had a vacation too just like us :) We feel like we have found precious gems in Vegas to care for our babies and we think you will love Rhonda too! Highly recommend her for all of your pet sitting needs!

Rhonda & Ray were extremely professional, courteous, & prompt when arranging the reservation. We were very nervous to book a reservation without conducting a meet-n-greet first as we would normally do. Once we met them, however, they made us feel at home in their clean, secure, and doggie friendly house. Rhonda sent us pictures and messages throughout our vacation making the whole experience that much greater. We were able to relax and enjoy our stay in Vegas. Knowing full-well Maddie was in good (maybe better?) hands than ours. We picked up Maddie rested, fed, had her potty breaks, and extremely happy, she even had learned a new trick! Rhonda is an amazing dog handler and your family member/pet will be in good hands while under their care. I would recommend them in a heartbeat. This will not be Maddie's last visit with them.

This was our first experience with Dog Vacay. It's not easy leaving your fur baby with a stranger but as soon as we got there we felt at ease. We all felt very welcomed (pup included) into the home and our host interacted so well with our usually very shy puppy that right away she seemed very comfortable and happy. When we picked her up we could tell she had had as good a time as we had and we were even sent home with an adorable photo of her to commemorate her visit. Rhonda was so fast to respond to a last minute request that made a visit to Las Vegas possible that first seemed unlikely and we're very thankful for that.
