About Ariel

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Vacation for you and Staycation for your pet! It's a win-win!

My husband and I are huge animal lovers and are always willing to help out a friend or family member by watching their pet(s). We have fostered dogs of all sizes from 10 wk. old puppies to a Great Dane and currently have 4 dogs of our own! Our 3.5 year old son shares in our love for animals, too. We would be so excited to love and take care of your pet when you are away.

This was my first experience using a dog sitter and I have to say that Ariel was excellent. She made me feel conformable since day one. I always had constant communication via phone or text messages. She sent pictures during the day and my dog always looked content. I am definitely a happy customer and I will be using her service again for future trips. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND ARIEL :-)

Ariel was SO accommodating!! I needed odd times for pickup/drop off and she was fantastic. My dog is also very protective and they didn't have a single problem. Very impressed with how well the stay went!
Abby did great! Loved the daily photos and videos. She was very relaxed when I picked her up. Ariel and family went over and above caring for her. Will definitely use her again.
I loved the photo updates!
Ariel was amazing. It was my first time leaving my boys, ever. She sent me pictures and videos daily along with answering every text I sent her. She made the first process for us so easy. She loved my boys and so did her family! Book with Ariel, seriously I searched and searched and searched for the perfect person. She is amazing!

We love you Ariel!

I was leaving on a weekend trip to visit my Mom & needed to drop off my Miniature Schnauzer, Mia off early. Ariel was very understanding & made arrangements so that I could do just that! I was able to depart for my trip as scheduled. Ariel is awesome!

Ariel and her husband did awesome with our pups. It was their first time to stay in someone's home and use dog vacay. They seemed happy when I picked them up. Loved the pics and treat bag!
Awesome is the best way to describe my dog's stay. I can tell he really enjoyed himself. He's ready to go again. I think he thinks he's a traveling dog now!
I can't express how happy I am to have found Ariel and her family. Seriously just stop looking for a sitter. Ariel is the best. This was our second time booking with her and will never book with another. She was incredible she made my large fur family of 4 feel welcome, relaxed and most of all loved. The pics she sent daily were absolutely fabulous she is a great photographer. I've never gotten such good pics of my babies. You could tell in the pics she sent that her whole family gave our babies love and attention. What else could you ask for? They felt like part of their family and that is priceless. Knowing that your babies are being well taken care of and loved on while you're away makes you relaxed and able to truly enjoy your vacation without worrying. She administered eye drops to one of our babies and kept me up to date daily as to what they were up to and how they were doing. She even bathed one when she had an accident which was above and beyond in my opinion because there is nothing worse than getting home and having to worry about getting your babies groomed because they are smelly. I never had to ask for the updates or the pics which was nice because with another sitter I felt like an inconvenience asking about them. She would automatically send them and it was very comforting. You can tell she is a dog lover because she truly treated them as if they were her own. Oh and she sent them home with some treats and a little note. That was such a special touch!

Thanks Ariel for taking such good care of our Mendy. It was our first time leaving her for an extended period ....the daily pics and that funny video made our time away that much more pleasant. Thanks for the mani/pedi too. Hope to see you again.
Everything went great. She sent tons of pictures and Harvey had a great time. She even sent home treats with him. We will definitely use again.
Ariel and her family took excellent care of Maya. We received lots of photo updates to see that she wss doing great and feeling right at home. Will definitely use Ariel again the next time Maya needs a vacay!
Loved Ariel and her family! Buddy didn't want to come home, and we felt secure seeing the pix of him playing, chilling, and having fun.
Ariel communicated with us the whole time she had our dog. She's very responsive to messages and sent us several updates during our trip including pictures and even a video. We plan to use her services again.
Max had a great vacay with Ariel. She sent me daily photos and I could tell he was well taken care of. She also made sure he ate because Max tends to go on a hunger strike when he's away from home. We plan to use her again on our next trip!
Ariel was AMAZING!!!! This was the first time leaving our pup with anyone other than family. During the meet N greet she made us feel so at ease and answered all our questions, we knew she was the one for us!! During Chloe's stay we received pictures all throughout the week and she responded promptly to any/all messages. She treated our dog like part of her family and we are more than grateful for her. Chloe has a pup Aunt for life and we will use her again and again for any of our pet sitting needs!! Thank you!! ????

Our puppy had a great stay with Ariel. She sent pictures every day we were gone. She has her own pets which allowed our dog to have interactions and playmates with other dogs. Her home is very clean with plenty of room and a nice backyard. She is very sweet and really loves dogs. She even sent our pup home with a doggie bag of treats. We will definitely use her again.

This was my first time using DogVacay, and I'm so happy we found Ariel. She's so kind and genuinely loves dogs! Diego and Mia had a great time interacting with the other dogs Ariel had and she took great care of them. We knew they our pups would be in good hands after our meet and greet. And the pictures updates were a bonus!

Another wonderful hosting! With all sincerity, we highly recommend Ariel to host your furry friends. Our Lola has an amazing time with her and her family and is very well cared for every time she is there!
Once again, Ariel and her husband were awesome! This was a longer stay and we were so thankful that our babies were well taken care of. All of the awesome pictures are a big bonus too! I'm actually about to book 2 more Vacays right now. ??
This was our first visit with Ariel and we will be back. The photo updates were great! Happy seemed to be very relaxed when I picked her up. Great host, I highly recommend.
We JUST moved to TX from MN and needed to travel to CO to see my Fertilty specialist. A very stressful time for us as a family. Our pup is used to staying at our very close friends' house so I was super nervous about boarding him. Ariel accepted our meet and greet so we headed out to Sasche. Neighborhood is great, house was beautiful, son was adorable and Ariel was super sweet. I was immediately comfortable booking the Vacay. The drop off went smoothly and we were off on our trip with a peace of mind we didn't think we'd get. Did I mention it was pretty last minute, for 7 nights & over 4th of July weekend? She sent daily cute pics and witty updates. Our little boy (125lb dobie) had a super time and I'm so happy I found her!!

This was our first time leaving Shiloh with someone we did not know. Although the meet and greet went well, I was nervous about leaving him with a stranger. Ariel answered the door with a BIG SMILE and told me that everything would be OK. Shiloh had an Awesome time with Ariel and her family. I was comforted with the pictures and video that she shared with me. It helped me to know that he was in good hands. The extra bag of goodies you left for Shiloh was a nice gift!! Thanks Ariel for taking care of my fur baby.

Buddy the wonder dog had a great time at his stay with Ariel. He is a shedder, and it was clear that she brushed him and took good care of him. Buddy loves to swim so she set up a kiddie pool for him. She sent me pics every day and kept me in touch. Great job!

Dakota had a wonderful stay. Ariel was very fast in responding to all questions and sent photos of Dakota playing and lounging. All in all a great experience.
For our first time to use Dogvacay and finding Ariel, I'd have to say that I am very happy to have found them! Ariel was the most excellent dog-sitter that we have experienced. Both our mini schnauzers are on a special diet and Ariel did not hesitate to fix it for them. She was most kind in keeping us informed of how our babies were doing. We are most pleased and have hopes of calling on her services in the future.

Ariel was awesome! Our dogs had tons of fun playing with their dog in the backyard and we could tell they were very well taken care of. The pictures Ariel sent were fantastic and really put our minds at ease. We will definitely be booking another Vacay!

Buddy had a wonderful time at Ariel's! Between veg-ing on the couch and playing with Bella, Ariel's own pup, Buddy was entertained while we were gone. We will definitely be using her and her family again to keep our precious pup safe and loved while we were away.

Thank you, Ariel!!!

Ariel is amazing. My dogs were well cared for and I received several pictures a day. I missed them but I didn't have to worry about them. I will gladly use them again!
Ariel is our go to anytime we have to leave Mochi. She's loving, dilligent with sending pictures of our fur baby (our toddler is so happy to see him when we're gone) and she takes phenomenal care of him. He adores Ariel and her family, as do we. Mochi always looks happy and healthy when we return and we have peace of mind knowing he's in good hands. Thank you Ariel!!

Ariel took excellent care of my fur baby.
Wonderful experience! Ariel was very warm and welcoming to our Lola. She was very thorough in getting to know our puppy's needs and was very good at keeping her on a routine as well as socialized. Our Lola was well looked after, cuddled on the regular, and we could not have asked for more in a sitter. Thank you! Highly recommend and look forward to having Lola join you and your family again soon.

I really enjoy leaving my dog in the care of Ariel. I like the process of doing the reservation. My dog comes home all happy and tired from playing so much. I also like the photos that she sends me so I can see how my dog is doing while I'm away.
Ariel is the best. My husband calls her the dog whisperer. We have 2 small dogs who have never slept away from home and they were terrified to go, but she made them feel right at home and posted lots of pictures while we were gone, so we new they were in good hands and could enjoy our vacation.

Took great care of our babies - treated them like her own! So appreciative - will be booking her for future vacations!!
Ariel sent me pictures of Oakley throughout her stay with her. I enjoyed that. When I picked up Oakley she was excited and happy.
I have used Ariel multiple times and she is always the best! My dogs are well taken care of and I feel totally comfortable leaving them with her. I can't recommend her high enough!
As always Ariel was awesome with my dogs! She was so flexible when I accidentally booked for the wrong dates and she made sure she still took great care of my pups! I highly recommend her and would have used her for life if I hadn't moved after this!
This was our first experience with Dogvacay and I couldn't be happier. Copper had such an amazing stay with Ariel and her family. The picture updates were perfect and so reassuring while we were away. In fact, he looked so happy and comfortable, that I was worried he would be sad when I picked him up. Copper and I are both looking forward to our next vacation!

I have an older chihuahua who can gets very nervous in new settings. Ariel was able to accommodate him last minute and did an excellent job of updating me and making my dog feel at home. I will definitely use her again.
Ariel was very nice and got back to me quick. Oakley was in s good mood when I picked he up. Ariel sent me photos while I was away so I could see Oakley each day. I would use her service again.
Ariel took such good care of my pups! They are energetic and can be kind of a handful but she handled them with ease. They were exhausted from all the playing when I picked them up! I would highly recommend her and can't wait to use her services again!

This is the second time that Ariel and her family watched our puppy. We were extremely comfortable with them and the great attention that they provided. As last time, she gave our Stella a care package when we picked her up. She was amazing and would definitely recommend her and will reach out to her in the future. A++++ Thank you again Ariel and family!

This is the first time that we have used DogVacay and we are super pleased! We got several pictures each day of Khaleesi (Our 2 year old Boxer) which made my wife extremely happy and comforted since we have never boarded our dogs before.
Khaleesi came back home happy and with a treat bag!
We will definitely be using Ariel again!

Ariel was very nice, sent us pictures every day, and provided details about our dog's stay about typical issues. Overall, a very good experience. Thank you BC
Max just had his second dog vacay with Ariel. He loves playing with her dogs and any other doggie visitors. Ariel has a nice backyard for the dogs to play and he came home tired! Max will be back soon for another stay!
Ariel was fantastic!! She was able to accommodate an early morning drop off, sent numerous pictures of the dogs throughout the stay, and was great to work with. I truly felt that our dogs were well taken care of....especially when it was time to pick them up when one of them didn't want to leave. I will certainly trust Ariel to watch our dogs again in the future.

Ariel and her family were the perfect hosts for our 12 week old French Bulldog puppy Stella. She was so easy to work with and flexible with my pickup and dropoff times. I felt very comfortable leaving Stella with her as it was obvious she was a big pet lover. Ariel communicated with me the whole time I was gone and sent a ton of pictures (She is also a photographer so the pics were AMAZING!). When I picked Stella up, Ariel had even included a doggy bag with a personalized note. I will definitely use Ariel again the next time we need to board Stella overnight. Thanks so much!!!

Ariel and her family were so wonderful to me and my dog Cooper. Ariel responded to my request for boarding right away, she was so kind and welcoming, she sent me awesome pics of Cooper and she even gave Cooper a goodie bag when I picked him up. This was the best experience and now their home is Cooper's (and my) favorite place to go! Thank you so much for being such a loving family!
-Karen, Allie and Cooper

Ariel was great! Easy drop off, easy pick up, house was super clean. My dog was happy to see me (of course!) and seemed to have been having a good time when I arrived at the door to pick him up. They even sent me pics of him. I recommend her care for your pet.

Max had a great time at Ariel's house! She sent lots of pictures and was very professional! We will definitely bring Max back for another vacay!
