About Arina

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm a student at Columbia University; pre-med/philosophy major. Have had pets all my life: dogs, cats, fish, rabbits and farm animals. Live two blocks away from Central Park where between 7-9am there is a great group of dogs that gets together to run and play. I tend to study at home rather than in the library so full time care isn't an issue. I would be happy to assist you with any of your pet care needs.

Arina was excellent with our our dog (Liam) and with very short notice she made herself available to us and Liam. She was very communicative throughout the entire sit and made us feel so relaxed about the whole thing.

Liam was very comfortable with her. Immediately after we had left the apartment she sent us the cutest picture of him lying down with his head in her lap. I would definitely recommend Arina to someone looking for a good and reliable dog-sitter as I'm sure Liam would love spending more time with her.
Very good sitter. Seems like she can handle anything! Responsible, responsive, and trustworthy. While we were gone, she sent us prompt updates and pictures. Whenever I had a question (a helicopter dog mom sometimes), she answered it right away! Would absolutely hire her again.
Arina was great with Becky and sent me updates & photos daily. I will be recommending her to all! Thanks, Arina!
Arina was great with my senior dog. She sent updates and pics throughout my dog's stay and assured me all was ok. I would absolutely use her again.
very responsible. My dog loved Arina. Will use again
I'm very happy with Arina, taking care of Gatsby. He was very happy and taken care of very well. I will definitely continue to leave Gatsby with Arina, and highly recommend her, she's excellent! Arina sent me photos, video and texts, so I was at ease knowing my furbaby was in good hands.
Arina was great with my fur-baby, Nola! She was very flexible with drop-off and pick-up and asked appropriate questions to get to know Nola when I dropped her off. She was very responsive to my requests for updates and I loved the pics and videos that she sent. It warmed my heart to see how easily she and my munchkin got along and how much fun they were having. We will definitely be returning!
The first time Arina took care of Quinny, she jumped in at the last minute and saved the day.
Quinny has now been with Arina 3 times and it just keeps getting better. There is no doubt that Arina cares deeply for the animals in her care. She provides a warm and loving environment for them, which now gives me peace of mind in leaving Quinny with her.

Arina has indulged Quinny in all the play she can handle along with plenty of belly rubs. Quinny now knows when she is getting close to Arina's home and her body language is happy excited. Quinny could not be in better hands.
Arina was wonderful with our pup Casper! She took great care of him - taking him on lots of walks and playing with him throughout the day. We loved the pictures and video she sent. I'm going to be sure to bring Casper back there in the future.
Arina was fantastic! She welcomed our pups with open arms - gave them tons of love, cuddles and exercise while we were away. She obviously has a lot of experience with and loves dogs... she put our nervous older rescue at ease and keep our overly rambunctious puppy entertained. From what I can tell she treated them like they were her own. She sent us pics and updates and gave us a full rundown of her time with them when we returned. I highly recommend her and will definitely use her again!
Arina was a great host for our dog Jelly while we were away on holiday. Much recommended!
Our dogs loved staying with Arina! They got to go run around in the park twice a day which is more than they get at home. They got lots of love and bedtime cuddles. She will be our go-to sitter in the future.
