About Rebecca

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello!
My name is Rebecca. I live with my boyfriend, Alex. We have an awesome rescue dog named Spike. He brings us lots of laughter and love. We enjoy taking him around the neighborhood or around the lake. We have a very tall, fully fenced in backyard that can be pad locked for extra security- if needed or desired, We have a bunch of toys to play with, but I also understand that some dogs can be possessive/aggressive over toys, so sometimes we put the toys away if they cant play nice together :) We live a few blocks from Lake Calhoun and Lake Harriet and we love exploring all the areas in between, stopping at Clancy's Meat market where the owner will give my pups a doggy treat. I am not a professional dog trainer, but I have worked wonders on a few dogs, including my own (Spike was not trained at all when I began fostering him-he was really naughty!) Spike can now do many tricks, and I have even trained him to run on the treadmill! He loves it!
I am able to help dogs get over many sorts of behavioral and emotional issues. My boyfriend and I love dogs and all animals in general. We would treat your pet as if it were our own; that's the only way I know how. I also have lots of experience with older dogs with health issues. The only restriction we really have is that Spike does not do well with cats at all:( He was like that since he was rescued, for unknown reasons. This is somewhat negotiable, because Spike spends a lot of time with grandma and grandpa in Golden Valley. He can usually go hangout with them to accommodate your cat or dog for whatever reason if you are in great need.
Thank you! And have you given your dog/cat a great big hug today? :)

Rebecca was so great with our pup's first vacay!

Our dog can be picky about who she plays with, but after our meet and greet with Rebecca and her dog, Spike, I had total confidence that our dog was in great hands.

Rebecca was awesome in keeping me updated during the day and gave me the full run down when I came to pick up. She was also extremely flexible with drop off and pick up times which was nice for my sometimes unpredictable work schedule.

Thanks for the fun play say Rebecca and Spike!!

Rebecca was awesome! She would send video updates of Trooper and Boo and ask all the right questions. She even set a chair out so our cat could reach his food on the counter... was such a thoughtful touch!
Rebecca was great! She took my dog on a super last minute request and so thoughtful and kind about it! I would definitely book with her again!
This was not only my first time using DogVacay but also the first time leaving Rudy with anyone other than family/friends - needless to say, I was nervous. From our meet & greet all the way through to when I picked Rudy up, Rebecca continued to take all of my nerves away! She was wonderful at keeping my updated that Rudy was doing just fine - if anything, it sounded like he was having such a good time, I was concerned he wouldn't want to come home! Haha! Rebecca was flexible with me on somewhat short notice & I will definitely be using her service again! Thanks Rebecca & Spike for taking such great care of my fur baby :))

My 4 month old puppy absolutely loved Rebecca and her dog, Spike. I was sent a video during the stay and it made me feel so happy! Stella slept for 4 hours straight after the stay because of all the stimulation and fun at Rebecca's! Definitely recommend her services.

Rebecca did an amazing job with my pup! Remi was having some tummy troubles and Rebecca knew exactly what to do. I was able to relax knowing my dog was in good hands while I was away. Rebecca is clearly experienced with dogs, extremely friendly, and I know Remi felt right at home there. Beautiful neighborhood as well! Overall great experience.

Rebecca took amazing care of my sweet pug Keisha! I recently moved to MN and needed to travel for work almost immediately. I was sort of freaking out because I didn't have anyone to watch Keisha on such short notice. Rebecca and I met up with our pups, they got along great and I knew Keisha would be in great hands! Rebecca sent me video, pictures and even an MP3 to keep me posted on how her stay was going-it was amazing!!

I travel quite a bit for work and knowing I've found a fun and friendly home away from home for my fur baby whole I'm travelling is not only a relief but a gift.

Thank you, Rebecca!!!


- Janessa and The Keisha

This was not only the first time with Dog Vacay, but the first time we were going to leave our senior dog with someone other than family or friends. Our dog also was new to a seizure medication. So I was very anxious to find a good fit. Rebecca immediately responded with compassion to my inquiries. Her true loving nature for dogs is clearly evident. I had no hesitation in leaving our furry family member with her for the week we were gone. She gave us daily pictures and updates that validated his being well attended to with TLC. We are grateful for the care he received and would highly recommend her services.
