About Rebecca


A passion for working with animals has led our family to in home dog boarding, a better option for your pup. We have been working with animals for over 25 years, including dog rescue, rehabilitation, training and boarding.

Our home is set up with your dog's comfort in mind, with a large, securely fenced in yard lined with trees and access to fresh water. Your dog will have lots of exercise, love and affection so that you have no worries about his/her well-being.

Supervision on weekends and in the summer is 24 hrs/day. Weekdays, pups are never left alone for more than 7 hrs. total a day. Your pup will have lots of interaction with people and other dogs, so you can enjoy your time away without feeling guilty about leaving your friend.

All good.
What a delightful experience! I was able to get away for a much-needed 'escape' without worying about my precious chihuahua. The frequent updates and photos were so reassuring and enjoyable. The family and their dogs were so welcoming and loving. I could tell that my Truman loved them and almost didn't want to leave to return home with me! Everything went so well. I highly recommend Dogvacay and 'my people.' :)
a little late with this review, but, We can't say enough about how wonderful it was to have our 2 xlarge dogs Porter and Hanna stay with Rebecca, she gave us peace of mind regarding how our dogs were being taken care of so we could relax and enjoy our cruise! perfect fenced yard and her experience with dogs is top notch. I would not hesitate to recommend her for anyone looking to place their dogs in a real home rather than a kennel!
They were so flexible and they watched over Bernice when we needed.
I can't say enough how much I appreciate the excellent care my two dogs received from the Zahn family. They have been at their home three times now and each time I leave them without a worry and they have lots of fun, wonderful care and affection!
Thank you so much for the flexibility and care given to hosting our girls. We appreciate it!!
Rebecca provided excellent care for my dog while we were on vacation. I didn't have worry since I knew my dog was well cared for. She even included an update for me on how my dog was doing. Will definitely reserve with Rebecca again in the future.
Jackson loves to go to Rebecca and Steve's house! It is so wonderful to know that he is being cared for by such a loving family. Owning one of the most misunderstood breeds around, I am so happy to have them as Jackson's home away from home!
Thanks to Rebecca, Steve and the boys for taking care of Bernice! We always know she will be cared for when we are away! Highly Recommended!
Dog came home tired and happy and we got nothing but praise about him!

My two dogs had a great time on an extended stay with Rebecca and her family. Reservation was a breeze, pick up and drop off were seamless, and she took a number of pictures off the dogs. We never had a worry. I would definitely recommend!
Bailey had a great night away! Rebecca said he played a lot with the other dogs. Bailey loves going to Rebecca to stay!
Our experience with Rebecca was awesome! Her and her husband were very informative and helpful in regards to the process (this was our first dog vacay). Our dog, Charlie, had a fantastic time with everybody at the house and the other dogs. Even though we were only gone for a weekend, they provided updates as to how Charlie was doing and sent us pictures as well! They will definitely be our #1 choice going forward. Thank you so much!
Our dog Oso absolutely loves to stay with Rebecca Z. He has fun playing and they are sure to spend time cuddling and loving him as well. We couldn't ask for a better home away from home for him.
Love zay he whole family! Gracie had a great time and is happily exhausted from playing! Thanks so much!!!!
As always, Taisho had a great time at Rebecca's. Even though he hasn't stayed there very often, he started wagging when we turned onto their street and pulled me all the way to the door! He slept all day when we picked him up. I wish we had gotten a few updates while we were gone but I know that if I'd asked, they would have responded right away. A great experience!
I feel very comfortable leaving my pup there because I know she will be in good hands.. The only thing I would say would be I would love more updates and pics while she is there..but great
Our pooch loves Rebecca's house- Fabulous host family for our furry family member . We never have a worry when he's there!
Our dog seemed to have a great time!
Rebecca and her family were very kind and courteous and took very good care of Luna. She answered my texts promptly and I'm sure Luna had a good time because she is so tired! I will definitely keep using Rebecca as a host for my dog.
Our 10 month old goldendoodle loved playing at Rebecca's house all weekend! I can tell Rebecca and her family really care about the dogs and I felt at ease leaving my fur baby with them for the weekend (this was his first time being away from us overnight). We just brought him home and he's already sleeping, so he must have had a lot of fun playing all weekend! Thanks Rebecca and family!
Rebecca was an awesome host! She was very informative and answered all my questions. She texted me back promptly when I asked how Luna was doing. She also took some amazing pictures of Luna running around with the other dogs! I was very at ease leaving Luna with her and Luna had a blast! It's been two days and Luna is still tired from all the exercise and fun she had! I will definitely be using her again when I need it!
My dogs love going to Rebecca house. I have had to use another boarding place when Rececca was booked and I was very disappointed in the other place. I would recommend Rebecca and her home to anyone looking for a place to take their pups!!
The peace of mind knowing how well they are cared for is wonderful. As I have said in the past reviews, when I pick up my pups, it's almost as if they don't want to go!!
Great experience, as always. Rebecca was very flexible and willing to take the girls on short notice when we had to attend a funeral out of town. Thank you so much!
We've had our dog stay with Rebecca's family several times and couldn't be happier. I never feel guilty because there's plenty of room for play and exposure to other guest dogs in a safe environment.

It's great socialization for him and it's a relief for us when we need it! She's frequently been accommodating on short notice, too.
Excellent as usual. It really is a vacation for our dog!
My dogs love Rebeccah's house. We feel better leaving them with her knowing that they will be treated like family.
Rebecca and her family were amazing while hosting our dog Shamus! I would highly recommend Rebecca, and there is no question I will take Shamus back the next time we travel! Stacie T.
Our dog always loves coming here! With such a huge house and backyard and so many dogs to play with he'll start crying with excitement when we turn onto Rebecca's street in the car. He always comes home exhausted and happy and we've heard nothing but praise for how well he gets along with all the other dogs. We've been back six times since with two more stays planned out already.
Rebecca and her family were great! This was out first experience with a pet sitter and we are very satisfied! We could not have asked for anything better for our girl!! Thank you!
Angus had a wonderful time. Home away from Home!!
I'm very happy with the way Squints (our English Mastiff) was taken care of. Thank you Rebecca and family!
This was the first time we had left our dog for an extended period of time. Rebecca was very quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had and also sent pictures twice while we were gone to show the fun that Bodi was having. Rebecca said he slept with one of her children while he stayed with them, which is very reassuring since Bodi sleeps with us at home as well. He was completely exhausted when he got home, so he must have enjoyed his time with the family and the other dogs. I will certainly be using Rebecca and her family again.
Rebecca and family was a fabulous home away for Comet! Would without hesitation schedule Comet for another stay! Thanks !!
Jackson had another wonderful time at Rebecca's house. Their care and love for him are evident! I am so glad I found Rebecca through DogVacay! It has removed my one major worry that has kept us from vacationing since my father in law became ill. I'm sure we will be using Rebecca again!
fantastic! I knew our four-legged, furry, family member would be taken great care of and he was!
We feel very comfortable when we leave our dogs with this family. They are obviously very knowledgeable and compassionate. We would recommend them in a heart beat!
The dogs only stayed for one night this time and I got the feeling that they did not really want to leave when we came to pick them up. Needless to say, they had a great time as usual!
Luna must have loved her stay because she slept most of the next day. She gets along great with their dogs and any other dogs they may have at the time. She really loved her time on "vacation".
Another great stay for Taisho with Rebecca and family! He was pulling at the leash the entire way up their sidewalk because he was so excited to stay there again! Rebecca is super accommodating about pickup and dropoff times and Taisho always seems very well taken care of and happy when we pick him up.
Bailey had a great time! He loves staying by Rebecca and family! Always comes home tired! Will play again!
I cannot put into words how thankful I am for the wonderful care and love that Rebecca and her family showed towards our Jackson. It was so reassuring to get the photos and the updates. I was able to relax and enjoy my time away knowing how well they were caring for him; a truly wonderful experience in dog care. I will definitely use their service again!
I was able to enjoy my short vacation knowing my 2 huskies were in a secure and caring home. I was very impressed with the measures they take to assure that no dogs can slip out the door. I highly recommend Rebecca and her family!
My dog had the best doggy vacay! I didn't have to worry about her because I knew she was well taken care of. Caring and loving caretakers. :)
Gia had a great time on her doggy vacay! Thanks so much Rebecca Z. for your wonderful care.
We knew from the first moment that we met Rebecca and family that our dogs would be in the best care, allowing us to really enjoy our vacation! The amount of care, love and attention given to the pups was beyond my expectations! Rebecca and family are just made to take care of all types of dogs -- we will definitely book with her again!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Coco seemed to love her stay! Rebecca was nice enough to send us pics of Coco playing with her new friends. We will definitely use Rebecca's services again. Thank you!
Bailey had a great time! He is so tired! He also came home smelling like roses! Lol He will come and play again next time!
Excellent care!! I appreciated the photo Rebecca sent during our vacation to show us our dogs were comfortable and well-adjusted!! 5 stars!!
Luna fits in really well with their dogs and really enjoyed herself. I could tell because she slept pretty much the entire following morning. They are a very caring family with a house and yard setup that is great for dogs. They are now my preferred #1 dog sitter.
Winnie and Darla had a great time during their stay. Rebecca and the boys took great care of our pups.
Another perfect stay with Rebecca and family! Taisho slept all the way home from being loved so much while he was there. It's SO nice to be able to leave town (even for a short time like this trip) and know that you don't have to worry about your baby.
I had an excellent experience with Rebecca. My lab puppy stayed with her for 4 days and had a blast! He was able to play with her dogs and the additional dogs she was taking care of. He had 4 days of playtime. She kept me updated with pictures and messages, and was very accommodating to my requests. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
Leaving my 10 week old puppy with Rebecca and crew was no problem. Granted, Gunner wasn't potty trained yet but the Zs took it in stride! No worries while Gunner was with them. The host dogs mothered and mentored him as well. Great experience!
Very accommodating.
Our dogs had a blast! This family is really great with dogs and also very knowledgeable. They even sent us pictures of our dogs while they were there. We highly recommend them and have already booked their next stay.
Bailey had a great time! He only stayed one night, but was tired for 2 days! They said he was very good. We are hoping to bring him back in the future! :)
This is the second time that my doggies stayed with Rebecca and family. Once again, I was able to go out of town knowing that my dogs would be in the best hands! I originally booked 4 nights and then at the last minute had to add on another two nights. I called Rebecca and she was so generous to allow them to stay for the extra nights!
My dogs were so excited to see them again! They were giving the kids kisses as I was walking out the door! What a wonderful place! I live in Waukesha, so it is farther than I would like to go, but have no problem going the distance to Racine for the peace of mind that I get knowing that my pups are in the next best place to home!!
Thank you again Rebecca!! See you soon!
Our doggy had a great time staying with Rebecca! Rebecca is a natural with dogs, and even though our doggy struggled a bit when she first met the other dogs at the house she ended up doing fabulous--so much better than a kennel, it was very reassuring to know that she was enjoying herself while we were away! Thank you so much!
Zeus had such a great time! Rebecca took care of our dog as if he were one of her own. We will definitely be using her again next time we can't bring Zeus with us!
Great place for pups, big and small,
Sadie had a great time at Rebecca's place! She made new dog friends and I'm sure she enjoyed the huge fenced-in yard, and having Rebecca's kids to snuggle with.
Great people. You can tell they all love dogs. They have a large, fenced in yard so your dog has playmates and room to roam.
Our dog is happily sleeping after a wonderful stay at Rebecca's! She loves it!
Our dogs visit was AWESOME as usual. Rebecca and her family are fantastic, thank you again for watching our furry babies.
Rebecca was awesome! We did a meet and greet beforehand so Taisho would feel comfortable with her dogs and vice versa, and then he was there for a week. He got tons of love and attention, and she even sent us pictures of his happy little face so we wouldn't worry. On the last day he got an ear infection and she took him to her awesome vet, got him treated, and then explained everything to me really calmly until I understood how to take care of it. DogVacay even paid for the treatment!! Her whole family took such good care of Taisho - her son even came running out to say goodbye to him! This was a completely positive experience - they're such nice people and obviously love dogs that you don't worry leaving your precious baby with them. I would give them a 10 if I could!
As first time puppy owners, my husband and I were more than a little concerned about leaving both of our puppies for the first time. Rebecca and her family were fabulous. After our Meet & Greet, we were positive that this was a perfect environment for Bandit and Scruffy. Our puppies had a wonderful vacation while we were gone. Rebecca sent pictures and updates several times. She also answered my text messages in a timely manner. We were never worried about the boys while we were gone. We just loved getting updates and pictures of them because we missed them. We are so happy that we found Rebecca and her family to watch our puppies. We will always use them in the future and would recommend them to anyone. This was a great experience!
our experience with Rebecca and her family was nice. everyone was very friendly. karlee loved being there and was worn out when she came home. I will be calling again the next time I need a sitter.
My two dogs absolutely loved being with Rebecca and her family. I felt very confident leaving my 13 year old Lab and my 7 year old Lab with them. She kept us notified and we were able to see photos of them having fun and relaxing with their own pack. They groomed them and they looked wonderful when we returned, not all all overly stressed like,they would even in a good boarding kennel, where they would have been in concrete kennel runs. I highly recommend them!
Dogs had a fabulous time as always!!
Warm caring environment with plenty of room to run! PAWESOME!!!
Once again - great situation for our dog. She had a great time with the other dogs and was well cared for. We don't have to ever worry while our dog is with Rebecca's family.
Rebecca and her family are AWSOME. They kept my dog for 17 nights and took such great care of her. She was well cared for, and loved. I plan on using them again, the next time I am out of town.
From the moment I met Rebecca and her family, I knew that it was the right place for my dogs to stay. For the first time I knew that I did not have to worry about my dogs while I was on vacation! The pictures that she sent all week were amazing! I found myself checking my emails often to see if there were more! The pictures showed that my dogs were having a great time. It is if they were on their own vacation. I was worried that they might not want to come home!! What a wonderful thing Rebecca and her family do. I will definitely take my dogs there every time I go anywhere. I am so thankful to have found them!! Thank you so much!!
I cant even put into words how wonderful Rebecca and Steve and her family are. They made our vacation so much better knowing my precious pup was well taken care of. She kept us updated by sending pictures and let us know how our dog was doing.
I would recommend her to anyone looking for a place to put their pups while they are away and we will definitely be using them again.
First time boarding Pearl. Rebecca was very responsive & flexible. Pearl enjoyed her time with Rebecca. She sent pictures & I didn't worry while we were gone.
Our dogs appeared to have a wonderful time while staying with Rebecca and family. It was reassuring knowing that they were being well cared for while we were gone. We are so glad we found you! Thanks again Rebecca.
Our dog Miles had the best time staying with Rebecca and her family! She kept us updated with emails and photos while we were gone, which made our whole vacation that much more special. It was like he was on his own vacation. Miles Davis had so much fun that he was sad to leave when we returned from vacation! I am definitely going to be using her services again! Best experience ever.
The entire experience with Rebecca Z and her family (of people and dogs!) was wonderful and extremely reassuring. They kept Truman for a couple of days while I had surgery. I knew I didn't have to worry about him at all during my 'ordeal', so that was a good feeling. I adored the photo she sent while I was recuperating. It's an amazing environment, and I just hope Rebecca has an opening when it's time for me to take the vacation I had to cancel for my surgery. Thank you so much for your DogVacay program.
Rebecca and her family are awesome!! Knowledgeable, friendly, absolute dog lovers, and can't say enough positive things about the service they offer. We checked out several boarding facilities in the area and when we met Rebecca and her husband we new right away this was the perfect place. Our dog is older and suffers from arthritis and I couldn't stand to think of him having to endure a kennel type environment for a week. The idea of having him vacation in a home, with people who love him as if he is their own, was more than I could have have hoped for. While we were away, Rebecca even sent update photos which we loved to see. I highly recommend you give them a try, you won't be disappointed.
Excellent! Lucky had a fantastic time!
Our big lab/mutt loves it at Rebecca's house. It's really like leaving her at a friend's house and very similar to her everyday experience at home. It's a big house with some other dogs and a cool family that takes good care of them. My wife works in the same school district as the proprietor so trust was never an issue. They have a giant, fenced-in back yard for the dogs to roam around. We feel worse when we have to pick her up than we do dropping her off because we know she has fun there and is well cared for.
What a great experience we had with leaving our girls with Rebecca and her family. We knew they were going to be well cared for and would be treated as part of their family, just like they are ours on a daily basis. Leaving them with someone is always hard, but after meeting Rebecca I knew they would be in good hands. I received updates on how they were doing and it was very comforting. We are very pleased with the services received and our girls seem to agree! Thanks Rebecca!
It was a perfect solution for us to have our dog in Rebecca's home. Our dog was well cared for and treated like she was the family pet. Having a dog sitter come to our home and let our dog out a few times a day would have cost the same but been detrimental to our dog - who loves other dogs and human contact.

Highly recommended!
awwwwwwwwesome JOB watching my doggies!
Wow! This was the best experience! As we checked into the hotel I received an email with photos of Romie having a blast on his vacay! I received updates on how much fun he was having, it was great! He came home freshly bathed and tuckered out from all of the fun he had. I would NEVER leave him with anyone else!!
Rebecca and her family are awesome! Our dogs fit in so well there and they love it! Dawn

Rebecca and her family were wonderful for our dog while we were away on vaction. He came home well excersized and happy! We plan to use her services again in the future if we should travel again.
We were so relieved to be able to leave our dog Lucky with Rebecca and her family. I really think he had a lot of fun playing with her other dogs and children. We worry about him every time we have to leave him. He is not crated so it was such a relief to know he could relax and make himself at home just as he does in our home. Rebecca was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about dogs so that was a big plus for us. She has a beautiful home and a huge, secure back yard because we have a very busy beagle that likes to rome and hunt.
Rebecca is a God-send. We were really struggling about leaving our dogs in a kennel and we got a groupon e-mail for When I was checking out the options, I knew Rebecca was the right fit even though not nearly as convenient as others. When we met her and her human and animal family it confirmed it. Our dogs are so happy there. They get a ton of attention and Rebecca is so good with them. She's worked with problems before so what seems like a problem for us is no problem for her. I tell friends with dogs about dogvacay all of the time and about Rebecca. She's worth going out of our way for (New Berlin to Racine).
Rebecca and family were great! Sanka and Bear were treated like family which was exactly what we were looking for - thank you so much for helping to ease any anxiety we had about leaving them. We are looking forward to their next visit!
We highly recommend Rebecca and her family—our dog, Barney, had a GREAT stay!

Before we found Dog Vacay and Pampered Pups, we felt a bit uneasy about leaving our dog for a week in a kennel, where he would be crated nearly all day and all night. Now, with Pampered Pups, we are comfortable leaving Barney behind while we take a vacation, because we know Barney is happy and having fun.

Prior to making the reservation, we had a meet-and-greet with the family and their three dogs. We could quickly tell that our dog would be well cared-for and loved while we were away, which eased any initial concerns we had about trying something new and leaving our dog with a stranger.

There are so many benefits to boarding at Pampered Pups. Here are some of the highlights that we observed during the meet-and-greet and during Barney’s stay:

+ Whole family loves dogs--Guest dogs receive lots of love and attention from both the parents and the children.

+ They have extensive experience with dogs and know how to interact with dogs and care for them. Our dog was initially nervous about the new environment and new dogs, but they knew exactly what to do to make him feel comfortable.

+ The 3 family dogs are friendly and provide good companionship to the guest dogs.

+ Large, fenced in backyard for the dogs to run around and play outside.

+ Lots of inside space for indoor play as well as rest time.

+ Regular photo updates and messages so we didn’t worry while we were away. We absolutely loved the updates and got very excited every time we received one with multiple photos and a recap of the day.

+ They have the best Dog Vacay insurance provided, in case something happens (God forbid).

+ We found the price to be very reasonable.

Overall, we are so glad to have found Pampered Pups. We will definitely have Barney stay with them on our next trip!
I could tell my dogs really liked Rebecca and family and felt very comfortable there. They got lots of attention and love. Some of the concerns I had with my dogs when being left (not going potty...) were not even an issue because it was such a comfortable environment for them. They are a wonderful family. A home away from home for our dogs.
Rebecca and family are fantastic! My dogs enjoyed their stay and I will be bringing them back for sure. Thank you again Rebecca for everything! Best regards, Rick, Dawn, Cayman and Skye A. :)
