About Adriana

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there! I have been rescuing and taking care of animals since I was a child. I am a happy, loving and caring dog boarder and I can't wait to meet you and your fur baby! My husband and I know your dog is one of your favorite family members and you want him/her to be safe and happy when you're away.

We are a tranquil, loving family with a large backyard in Hamilton Hills, Greensboro. Our house is tucked away from traffic in a quiet, safe, family and pet-friendly neighborhood.

-A little about myself and my family:

My name is Adriana. I've been with Guilford County Schools for over 8 years. My husband name is Scott and he is a sales representative. He has been in the metal business for over 9 years. Sir Bruno is a loving, energetic, and super friendly 9 years old Westie who is unemployed and lives at our expenses :)

I love reading, dancing, singing, and taking long walks with my dog, Sir Bruno Gullo.

-A TYPICAL DAY WOULD INVOLVE:

*basic care (feeding/watering/meds if needed/potty breaks)

*lots of play time (indoors or outdoors depending on the weather and your pet's preference)

*walks (long/short depending on the owner/pet preferences)

*plenty of petting, love, and attention

*All of my guests have free-range of the house unless crating is requested by the owner

*treats (good quality, natural, no corn, no wheat, no soy)

I LOVE to photograph dogs, so rest assured that you will receive updates with photos for a worry free vacation!

**I ask for meticulous descriptions and instructions about each pet routines and preferences so our pet guests can feel at home with us. Most of our regulars are rescue dogs, and they have unique challenges that can be worked on in our "home away from home" setting. We love to send updates that show these dogs overcoming any issues they may have. **


So send me a Meet and Greet! I will be glad to help you.

Adriana is the best. She is very caring and dependable. I feel completely comfortable with her taking care of my doggies. They love her and enjoying going. She goes beyond the call of duty and knows how to take care of their every need.
We are thrilled with Adriana. Our pups seemed sad when she left them. She takes care of them as if they are her own. We will not hesitate to use her again. Thank you Adriana.
Perfect! We've left our dog (very reluctantly) in boarding kennels in the past and never felt great about it. Leaving our dog at Adriana's is like leaving your kids with your favorite relative. Not only is Adriana such a pleasant and kind person, her dog Bruno makes me want to go back and visit all the time. What a great personality he is! Adriana invited us over for a visit before we left our dog with her. Her house is immaculate! How does someone keep such a clean house while keeping dogs? Adriana is also very generous with dog treats. She even has homemade healthy treats in her fridge for company pets! She takes her job very seriously which allows her customers to leave their babies behind with complete confidence that they will be well taken care of.

Our dogs were treated like one of the family, Adriana spoiled them as we would. Her daily pictures and videos kept us up to date on their fun.
Adriana was wonderful! I could tell immediately after our meet & greet that she truly cares about her doggie guests and does everything she can to get to know them and make them feel at home. She sent us photos and videos throughout the weekend and I could tell our dog, Winston, was having a blast. I felt so relaxed and comfortable on our weekend away knowing he was in good hands. I am not even Winston wanted to leave when I came to pick him up! I would highly recommend Adriana to anyone and I know Winston can't wait to come back.

Adriana and Scott always provide excellent care with lots of exercise, attention and TLC. They have a huge fenced in yard for running and playing. Their Westie, Bruno, too, is a wonderful host!
Adrianna was awesome! She was so patient and kind and loving with my new puppy. She is also a great trainer and a wealth of knowledge! I was nervous to leave him with someone but after I met her I was no longer concerned at all. I am actually excited to leave him with her again!

Adriana and her husband treated our baby Cupcake like their own. They are true doggie lovers who have their own sweet furry baby. We received multiple photos, videos and messages during our vacation which made us feel connected to Cupcake even when we were far away. They reassured us not only that she was safe, but that she was having fun as a temporary member of Adriana's family. When we go away in the future we will definitely let her visit with Adriana and her family again.

I can honestly say that Adriana FAR SUPERSEDED any expectations I had of a home dog-sitting situation for my cockapoo Cosmo.

Not only was my dog safe and well-cared for, he was happy, loved and stimulated on a daily basis.

Adriana is something of a dog whisperer. She understands dogs on some other, deeper level than the rest of us do. As a result, the care pets receive in her home is attentive, customized and semi-supernatural. :) She is also VERY practical, no-nonsense and safety-minded in her care of pets.

I have a fairly idiosyncratic dog (don't we all?) and she understood him right away.

I can honestly say that not only did Adriana and her husband Scott treat Cosmo as well as I do, in many respects, they treated him BETTER -- providing him recreational, physical and socializing opportunities with other dogs that I can not.

And did I mention the photos and videos?? She sent daily proof that my dog was having a blast and getting along well.

I wouldn't hesitate to use Adriana again. I think she is a credit to and OUTSTANDING ambassador for the DogVacay organization.

Adriana went above and beyond to take care of our two dogs. They had so much fun, I don't think they wanted to go home. We will never use a kennel again!
We all felt in love with Adriana, Scott and Bruno the moment we met them. After the Meet'n'Greet we had no doubts this was the only family we wanted to board our 5 month old puppy Sherlock!

Sherlock spent 2 weeks with Adriana, Scott and Bruno and it seemed that he was spending a better time than we were on our vacations. Adriana is an amazing host, very caring and responsible. She takes her guests very seriously and provides the best care for every dog. We received tons of pictured and videos every day along with a report card. Bruno is an absolutely adorable dog who became a really good friend and play buddy for Sherlock and even taught my pup to behave better.

It was an amazing experience! There was no moment we worried about Sherlock! Every single day of our vacations we were absolutely sure he was fine and having a great time. It is priceless and we will definitely be returning clients.

We are repeat customers...for good reasons. Adriana and Scott provide excellent supervision, care and fun for their canine guests. I trust them to make sure our Max is well cared for when we are away, giving us great peace of mind. Of course, he slept for a full day when we brought him home this time, telling us he played and played and played in their big backyard. Thanks, guys!

When I first met Adriana, I knew she was a natural dog lover. She even offered to take my dog on a walk before her stay to get to know her. It was clear when we picked her up that our golden retriever, Millie, loved her stay with Adriana. I would highly recommend her.

I wish there was a super pawsome because Adrianna, Scott and Sir Brune are just that. Our less than 2 year old yorkie, Barkley, is pretty shy with new people. Adrianna very skillful approached him and Barkley is now in love! Adrianna is very knowledgeable, and implements appropriate safety precautions. She provided Barkley with the love and security that brought us great peace of mind. We got regular pictures and updates. My only reluctance to encourage anyone to engage Adrianna is rooted in wanting to keep her all to ourselves! All kidding aside, you could not find a better option for your pup.

Although handsome and sweet, our pup is painfully shy. Leaving him somewhere is hard because he is not comfortable in new situations. We felt good about Adriana after our Meet and Greet, and we couldn't have felt better about Max's stay. He was busy playing when we got there, was calm and he looked great -- clean, brushed, etc. we appreciated daily photos and videos along with an informative report. I don't want to overlook their little ambassador, Bruno, who invited Max to play from the first second he arrived! What a cutie! All in all, we give this host an A for Awesome!

Adriana was a perfect hostess for our labradoodle puppy. From the moment we first met Adriana and her dog Bruno, my dog felt right at home. My dog can be a hand full at times but Adriana's calm and gentle manner was very reassuring to both me and my dog. I will definitely use Adriana again.

I am a repeat customer with Adriana and wholeheartedly recommend her. My dogs love her and her Bruno. She is patient, knowledgeable and very loving. I never worry about my boys when they are visiting.
Adriana was great! She kept our large lab for a week. She had a big fenced in yard and he enjoyed the indoor fireplace. She gave him lots of love and I could tell he was very comfortable there. She also sent lots of pictures and videos while we were away! Would highly recommend.

Adriana is the absolute best dogsitter. My dog, Jack, loves her and her adorable pup, Bruno. I feel completely at ease when Jack is staying with Adriana, since I know he is getting a lot of playtime with him buddy Bruno and lots of love from Adriana. She sends me pictures and videos during his stay. 5/5 stars for sure!!

Adriana is amazing! A true animal person. Her approach is gentle and loving while gracefully maintaining her alpha status! All much needed traits with a 80 lb German Shepherd. :) I will use Adriana EVERY time, and recommend her to my clients. She truly went above and beyond and I LOVED receiving the the updates WITH photos too!

Adriana is just wonderful. My dogs were instantly comfortable in her home, and her Bruno is adorable.
She allowed my trip to be carefree because I had complete confidence in her ability to care for my dogs. I was sent daily report cards and pictures/videos of their activity. When I picked them up I'm not sure they wanted to go home, a little disconcerting for me but it let me know they had a good stay.

I would absolutely recommend Adriana to anyone looking for a dog sitter. Her home was very inviting and I could tell that my dog was in good hands. She sent me pictures and videos of my dog as well as report cards to let me know how she was doing. I would not hesitate to bring my dog back to her the next time I need a sitter.

Adriana suggested a meet up for my dog and I to visit her home prior to his stay there. My dog immediately took to Adriana's dog Bruno and I was impressed with Adriana's knowledge of canine behavior and her exuberant love for dogs. Adriana reassured me that I would receive a daily report card along with pictures of my dog during my trip. I had been extremely anxious and emotional about leaving my dog for the first time. This was a five day trip for me and the daily reports with pictures was so comforting and reassuring. My dog romped, played, went for long walks and had lots of one-on-one playtime with Bruno. My dog was so comfortable with Adriana and her husband Scott. I could not have been happier with the care and loving attention my dog received. I feel my dog's vacay was every bit as special as mine. I would highly recommend Adriana and will definitely be taking my dog to her on my next trip!
