About Rebecca

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Our home is in a rural area with lots of yard. Our family includes two pugs who are spoiled rotten! We are true dog-lovers. Your pup would be on a leash with me or my son (17) to explore the yard and/or go for walks--especially in the spring, summer and fall. I am a bit of a wimp in the winter, so we don't get out quite as much. ;)

My 2 pups sleep with me on a queen-sized bed...if your dog is used to sleeping with you or would like to sleep in the bed, he or she is more than welcome to sleep with us (me & the pugs).

I do work full-time; I am an elementary teacher. Dogs would be on their own when I am at work. I crate my 2 in a large kennel and have 1 other large kennel, and 1 medium crate. If your dog is trustworthy in the house, I am willing to give him or her full access while I am out. If I have more than one trustworthy dog, I will not leave them unattended unless one is crated or they are blocked off in separate rooms. I am very careful about your dog's well-being.

When I do get home from work, your dogs get lots and LOTS of attention: snuggling on the couch, chasing balls, nibbling treats, playing with toys or other dogs, and being lap dogs...as all dogs think they are. :)

Guaranteed your pupper will feel like part of our family!

NOTE: My one requirement is that your dog is completely house-trained. Male dogs especially--as they tend to mark their territory and more so if they are not neutered.

My dog, Sophie, enjoyed her weekend away with Rebecca and friends. I would definitely return. Thanks Rebecca!
This is Harley's third time vacationing with Rebecca and his two pug friends, Pippa and Louie! He definitely gets to feel at home while he's there since he gets treated like a king! Soooo happy we found Rebecca and for anyone who's dog is their other "child", she is the person that you can truly trust to take 100% great care while you are away! Thank you again and again Rebecca for everything!!

Heidi just spent her 2nd doggie vacation with Rebecca and her other dogs. When we arrived for the 2nd time she seemed excited to be there, and when we came to pick her up a week later, she seemed happy and relaxed, at least until she recognized us and was glad to see us again. I am sure Rebecca took good care of her. And thank you, Rebecca, for brining in the bag of dog food and bowl we left when you were in town. The doggie bag and book were a nice surprise, too. Heidi seemed very interested in sniffing the book, if not reading it, but we enjoyed it!

Rebecca was very accommodating as far as dropping off and picking up. She has 2 very friendly pugs and plenty of room for the dogs. Would not hesitate for a moment to bring Leopold to her again!
Bauer had a great time!!
It was really a wonderful experience. QT, our dog, frequently refuses to eat when we are not around. Rebecca got him to eat and let him sleep on her bed like we do. She also sent us daily pictures, letting us actually see him and what he was doing. Thanks so much Rebecca. Memorial services are a strain and you helped us and QT get through it.

As always Mirabelle was very happy! I lost my cell phone in Greece and Rebecca was flexible with not hearing from me on a regular basis!
Rebecca did a fantastic job!!!!
Rebecca is the best care giver that anyone would want for their pet! Harley just loves her and both of her pug's! All we have to do is mention her name, and he starts jumping and wagging his tail! We are so greatful that we found her on Dog Vacay!!

Rebecca was great! Our dog came home tired and happy! We went out of town last minute and she was more than happy to accommodate us and we were very thankful!
We were looking for someone in the area who would be able to watch our chocolate lab while we were on vacation. We happened to find Rebecca online, on Dog Vacay, and saw all the 5star reviews that she received. After emailing her for information, we had a real good feeling that she was just who we were looking for! Then after meeting her, we KNEW we made the right decision! She was just fantastic with Harley, treated him as her own, and he wasn't unhappy at all when we picked him up! No separation anxiety! First experience, but will definitely book again with Rebecca! Thank you DogVacay for referring her to us!

Rebecca was awesome! She was great with communication and letting us know how our dog was doing (and even sent some photos!). Our Golden felt right at home and it was great knowing that he was so well taken care of. She was flexible with drop off and pick up hours, and we even did a meet and greet before hand just to get to know her. We would highly recommend!

Perfect as usual :) Thanks for being flexible for drop off and picking up hours. Will see you soon :)
Rebecca was very flexible with the drop off and pick up times! My dog Mollie was happy and healthy :)
We feel very lucky that Rebecca could take care of Bella and Lily. Our Bella takes more time to get use to other dogs. Rebecca always take extra time to introduce her and it goes great! She treats them like family members, which always help us to have great vacation without any worries. They also have play time and take walks everyday :) Thanks for everything!!!

Flexible with time frame a for dropping off and picking up. Very accomidating pups enjoyed socializing. Will use again.
Rebecca took wonderful care of our dogs, Molly & Lucy...without hesitation I would bring them back to her again. I felt totally comfortable from the first time they met and I am glad I found her!
Everything went smoothly. Rebecca was very nice and seemed to love dogs. We were a little nervous about leaving our 7 month old puppy for the first time but after meeting Rebecca , we knew that she would be well taken of. Rebecca even sent us pictures of Molly so that we could see that she was ok.

Rebecca was great to work with. I spaced out and forgot Evie's kibble but she was willing to share her dogs' kibble with Evie for the weekend. She sent me text updates and said wonderful things about my dog. I don't know that you can do much better.
Rebecca got along very well with our Chihuahua. Her own two dogs were very welcoming and I think Tia had a really nice time playing and snuggling.
Rebecca was wonderful! Our Louis was well taken care of - with lots of play with her pugs, walks and attention. We so appreciated Rebecca's willingness to keep up posted with updates and pictures as well.
We fully recommend Rebecca and can't thank her enough for taking such good care of our pup!

We were more than pleased with the care and attention Rebecca gave to our dogs. Before the actual "vacay" began, she was very informative about the process via messages and even let us bring the dogs over so that they could meet with her dogs and we could meet with her. During the actual stay, she sent pictures and updates to us on the dogs' well-being. That was very much appreciated as we had never "boarded" our dogs before. If our dogs could speak, they would probably tell us that staying at Rebecca's was like being in Doggie Disneyland- it was such fun playing with Pippa and Louie and Rebecca and Mathew! We will definitely use Rebecca again when the need arises and recommend her to our friends as well. Rebecca is obviously a dog lover and it shows!

great host, fast response and pictures!
Bella had a wonderful vacation with Rebecca, her son and their two pugs. It was Bella's first time away for so long without us. Rebecca is a carring and patient person. We felt relieve to know our baby was in good hands :) We will definitly go back to Rebecca's for our next vacation. Thanks for everything!

I was very nervous about leaving Mirabelle while I was in Paris, but Rebecca is great! She sent updates and pics during Mirabelle's stay. I didn't want to "board" Mirabelle for such a long stay and really wanted more of a family/home atmosphere and Rebecca fit the bill! It is clear that she loves her dogs so that made it more comfortable for me!

Both Mirabelle and I are very happy with Rebecca!
I cannot say enough good things about Rebecca. She was awesome with our dogs. We went on vacation and took our dogs with us to NY. We left them with Rebecca because they could not stay with us. Rebecca made it very accessible for us to see them.We went to visit them 2 different times during their stay and they both seemed very happy. We will definitely ask Rebecca again when we go next year.
