About Rene

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi my name is Rene and My philosophy here is: when you go on vacation your dog will be on vacation too. A little info on my fur baby Max: Max is 8years old, updated with all his shots, he's still full of life and loves to play with other dogs big or small ,and i have never had an issue with Max being jealous he loves to have a furry friend around. I only watch 1 dog at a time so with that you will know that your fur baby is getting all the attention he or she needs and with nervous parents you wont have to fear with another dog you haven't met being around because it will only be your baby and Max. So with me i can assure you that your furry friend will get the same love i show my dog. They will not be put in cages, they can walk around as they please and more than welcome to sleep on the bed or couches. They will go out for long walks to get fresh air and a lot of belly rubs. I want to watch your pet because i know i can show them the love you show them everyday. You will not have to worry, you will know they are safe and being treated with love. I also send a lot of pictures through out there stay so that you will know how they are doing.

This was my second time with Rene watching my dog, I went out of country for about a week and a half and she did amazing with my dog Cooper! Her home is clean and roomy and my dog got along well with hers. She sent me updates and pictures twice a day and took him on walks! My dog was not sleeping well in his kennel so she even let him sleep in the bed! I would definitely recommend Rene even if its for a few days or longer, she knows what shes doing and always goes the extra mile for the host and their pet!!
This is the second time Rene has watched Clay for me, and again it was a great experience all around. It's so difficult to find someone to trust with your pet, but Rene, her husband, and her dog Max provide total peace of mind throughout. Clay came back to me 1) totally safe, 2) cleaner than I left him, and 3) with a little bag of treats (his Christmas presents from Rene). Way above and beyond.

Also, Rene is great at communicating and providing updates (pictures at least every morning and evening). Cannot recommend her enough.
Of all of the experiences my wife and I have had with DogVacay, there have been none better than the experience with Rene. I sincerely mean this and encourage anyone in the COS area in need of dog care to use Rene Z.
Rene was incredibly responsive and professional from the moment i placed a reservation request. She routinely checked in leading up to the stay and communicated regularly during our pup's stay.
We are relieved to have found such a great place for our pup to stay and plan to use her moving forward..
We are return vacationers at Rene's. I can always count on my dog receiving one-on-one personal attention and care that is often lacking at larger dog boarding outfits. Finding the right fit for your dog sitting needs isn't always easy, and I am thankful that I found Rene.
Rene and her little dog Max were great hosts for my dog Bella Jo. Rene was very accommodating of my dog's special needs since she was nursing a knee injury and needed medication administered and shorter walks. I don't like having to leave my dog behind when I travel, but I feel more comfortable knowing that she is in good hands with Rene.
Amazing! Everything went perfect. Simply loved the whole experience. Rene really made me feel at ease because I knew Sherlock was in good hands.
Rene was an incredible host to my dog, Clay. Some background - Clay is a rescue and can be a bit...quirky. He's usually a nervous nelly, so he has to be handled with care. That makes leaving him behind when I have to go out of town a challenge.

That said, Rene was amazing. She has a natural ability with dogs that sets her apart from the casual "Oh, I'll watch your dog" type. She understood and responded to Clay's needs, setting him (and me) at ease. She takes the "vacay" part of DogVacay seriously, making it a vacation for my dog, not a burden for someone to deal with. Again, that was a tremendous relief. In fact, Rene reported that Clay's weird neuroses weren't even really present during his stay. That's awesome. And in terms of booking - Rene was really communicative and flexible.

Maybe the best part - Rene sent me several pictures (and GIFs) of Clay while I was gone, so I was able to see how well he was doing. He looked as comfortable (or even more so) than he does at home. She even called me to make sure it was okay that she took him to Garden of the Gods and gave him a special doggie yogurt treat. When I came to pick him up, he seemed like he wanted to stay with Rene and her husband. He didn't want his vacation to end - hard to blame him.

I can't recommend Rene enough, and I'll definitely be booking her again in the future (if she'll have us).
After doing a meet and greet we felt comfortable leaving our girl with Rene. Our dog acted like she did not want to leave. Cute pictures were sent to us during the stay.
Rene was AWESOME! She took great care of our dog, Nadia. We highly recommend her and we will definitely use her again!
Rene is awesome and her love for dogs really shows!!! Our active, 8 month old, 55 pound Lab/Aussie mix puppy, Rusty, stayed with Rene and her husband for 12 days! We have never left Rusty alone with anyone in the past and were a little nervous. Rene was very reassuring and made us feel comfortable. She sent us 3 pictures a day with updates and a short video. Her apartment was very clean with a lot of outdoor space. Rusty was with Rene and her husband over the 4th of July holiday and they went above and beyond by staying home to be sure the fireworks wouldn't startle Rusty. Rene allowed Rusty to sit on her furniture and even sleep on her bed. Rusty has reintegrated well back into our home (no illness, no appetite loss, no soiling in the house, and still follows commands). We will definitely use Rene in the future and recommend her to everyone! Thanks again, Rene!!!
Rene was wonderful with our dog, Duchess, during her stay last weekend. She even sent pictures of Duchess thorughout the weekend, just to let us know how she did and what they've done for fun! I definitely recommend Rene for anyone who needs a pet sitter.
Rene was awesome! Our dog Emma had lots of fun during her 9 day stay with Rene. We received multiple picture updates every day. Our Emma received lots of attention, walks and love. Rene's dog Max is a sweetheart and instantly became friends with Emma. We would definitely use Rene's services again, knowing that Emma will be safe and well taken care of!
Rene was an awesome dogvacay for my pet. I know he had a great time with her and she took real good care of my pet!!! I recommend her for my future reservations.
Renee is very nice and professional and our dog looked so happy during her stay from the photo updates we received throughout her stay. We'll be coming back.
Rene was AMAZING! Our puppy, Mister, had such a great time with her! She took him on so many walks and sent wonderful picture updates every day! Mister can be a little rambunctious sometimes, so we brought his kennel in case she needed a break, but she never used it once. We were extremely pleased with the care that Rene provided to our puppy, and will certainly be using her services again. Thank you Rene!!
Rene is the perfect choice if you have a small to medium dog that needs extra attention. Her gentle dog Max was the perfect companion for my very active Yorkie who had never been left with a sitter before. She even made a special trip to PetSmart to buy his special diet food which I forgot while rushing to the airport. I slept good with no worries knowing that my Rocket was safe and cared for. I will definitely choose Rene again.
Rene was wonderful! My dog stayed for 1 week at her place and he had a great time! She kept me updated with pictures every few hours! She made sure he was walked each day and fed right! My dog was played with and loved! I would definitely recommend Rene for anyone who is looking for a sitter she does a great job and her place is clean and well kept with good outdoor areas to walk the dogs! I have no complaints!
I needed a last minute home for my little puppy and Rene thankfully was available. She is very kind and definitely a loveable dog owner. She sent me constant updates of Milo and surely did spoil him. Milo and myself couldn't be more happy with the services she provided. She's definitely my go-to girl for any dog sitting needs. :) THANK YOU!!
