About Arlene

47 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
*Please schedule a Meet & Greet before making a reservation for the 1st time. It is important for your dog(s) to meet me before their stay here.

Nice size home with a fenced in backyard. We have dogs all of my life.
Our Golden Retriever, Jordy, passed away after a long illness and we are not ready to replace him. He had brain cancer for 6 months but was happy all of the time. After caring for him during his illness I know that we can take care of any dog in any position. We always walked Jordy 3 times a day. Our vet said that he lived as long as he did because we took care of him so well.

Our dog was very happy with Arlene and we received photos every day which was much appreciated. She made sure she had all the feeding instructions and was very thorough. This was our first time using DogVacay and we would definitely recommend Arlene!
As always, we are very comfortable leaving Mikey with Arlene. He also gives her 5 stars!!
This was our 2nd visit with Arlene. Our dogs were well cared for while we were on vacation. We received pictures and frequent updates. Thank you, Arlene!
Arlene was great - I have a 12 year old Golden Doodle that can't tolerate to much activity. I love the fact she only has 2 dogs at a time. She was very communicative and sent us pictures during our trip. Thanks Arlene!
Arlene was so kind and we loved the photos she sent us while dog-sitting. We will definitely be using her again!
Arlene B is a wonderful dog sitter who I found by accident in a Google search for pet boarding, but now I believe it was fate. My brother & my mom are my usual dog sitters, but they were unavailable and I had to find a place to board my Shiba Inu, Niki, fast. I really didn't want her to have to be kenneled at a PetSmart or the vet. I wanted to keep her in a home setting and that's where Arlene B comes in. She treated my Niki as part of the family, which was evident when I picked her up. It was as if I was picking her up from my mom's. There was no change in her demeanor or behavior, which I think all pet owners worry about when they board their animals. To be able to board her on such short notice and not worry about Niki at all while I was away truly was a blessing! I will definitely use Arlene B again in the future if I need a place for my 'lil girl to stay. :)

Ollie was a very happy pup staying with Arlene. She took great care of him and sent the cutest pictures. I loved how she kept me updated on his stay and that she enjoyed having him at her home. I would definitely have Ollie stay with Arlene again.
Arlene was terrific -- so conscientious. Pippi is old and a picky eater. Arlene even made him scrambled eggs so he'd eat before his insulin shot. Thanks, Arlene.
A much deserved 5 star review for Arlene!

With a senior dog, I had a number of concerns and Arlene handled everything with confidence and care. She took care of everything and more. I received a much appreciated picture everyday. She answered all my messages quickly and was genuinely concerned with making me and my dog comfortable with her stay.

Thanks for the peace of mind!

The Meet and Greet was a great way to meet Arlene and get to know her. By the end of our conversation, I was confident that I had found the right host to watch Mikey. She also did a wonderful job keeping me updated on how Mikey was doing during his stay.

Arlene was beyond! What a wonderful, caring host to our Lula! I was especially hesitant in finding a caring sitter for our dog and my husband and I went to a meet and greet, as this was the first time we've left her. We were at another house and Lula started foaming- alot. I just got a feeling that it wasnt right. At Arlene's... it all came together with absolutely no problem and I knew she was the one! For someone as apprehensive as I was, I truly recommend Arlene to take loving care of your pet. I will book very soon with her, and recommend anyone to do the same! Btw, Lula was her usual happy self and I have high fives for Arlene!

Arlene was a wonderful sitter for our beloved Louie. We had never left Louie for so long (almost a month) and we were delighted with his care. Arlene is a true dog-lover and doted over Louie. He had a big yard to run and exercise in, we received messages and updated photos every other day, and Louie seemed content and happy. We were even afraid that he wouldn't want to come home with us. I wouldn't hesitate to use Arlene's services again and recommend her to anyone looking for a caring home away from home for their pet.

Arlene did a great job with our lab Kept us updated with pics and spoiled our sunshine Would recommend for sure!! Thanks again
This was our first experience using DogVacay.com and it was very easy to find sitters near us. Arlene responded to our request right away and made it easy to meet. Dash stayed 1 night and we would use Arlene again
Riley had a great stay at Arlene's! We were having our floors redone and needed a place for Riley to stay for a few days - Arlene was very flexible with the arrangements as we didn't know exactly when we would need her until the last minute. She was very accommodating to us, adding an additional day at the last minute as well. Riley seemed very happy there! Great experience!

Bailey had another great stay with Arlene (our 3rd time). Arlene is super responsive to emails and sends great photos throughout Bailey's stay. She is a terrific dog sitter! We have 100% confidence each time Bailey stays with her.
Arlene takes such a load off my mind. Our dog is very old and arthritic. He also does not do well with other dogs. Arlene is very attentive to his needs and is willing to deal with all his medications. I can go away knowing he is getting the best of care. Arlene also makes sure we get regular updates with pictures of our boy. I would highly recommend Arlene to anyone looking for a dog sitter.

Arlene and her family took very good care of our dogs! We received pictures of their activities during the week and they came home happy and healthy. Thank you!
This was my first time using DogVacay and Arlene. The meet and greet was very helpful in learning about Arlene and letting Bear become familiar with his home away from home. I found Arlene to be knowledgeable about dogs and warm and welcoming to Bear. I loved that she sent picture updates with short notes about how he was doing. He came home happy and healthy. Will definitely use Arlene for future vacations.

Went great as always. Gives us peace of mind to know that our dog is with someone she knows.
Arlene took wonderful care of Bailey! She sent us lots of pictures of our dog while we were away. Plus, she was very responsive and responsible. We will definitely use her again. Thanks, Arlene.
Great as always.
Our pup was obviously one content and happy dog when we came to pick him up. Arlene had lots to tell us and even gave a tip on something that had put new life into the old boy. We loved her concern for Sasuke since he suffers from arthritis and has trouble getting around.

Arlene always takes good care of our dog. We only use Arlene. We have used her 3 times now. Would not consider leaving our dog with anyone else.
Arlene and David are great! We always feel good about leaving our dog with them. She even sent us some pictures while we were gone. We will only leave our dog with them as long as they will have her. Good dog people.
Our dog had a wonderful time on her vacay with Arlene. She and her husband are so nice and friendly and clearly dog lovers. She is also very accommodating to schedules, etc. My husband especially liked the pictures we got during the stay. It was fun to see what she was doing and stay connected. Our dog is already begging for her next vacation so she can stay with Arlene.

Arlene watched my dogs for 16 days while I was out of the country. To say she was wonderful is an understatement. She kept me constantly updated with photos on how the dogs were doing. Because of her wonderful care I am not sure that my dogs were all that happy to see me back!!!! I highly recommend Arlene and I know that I will be using her again.

We were nervous about leaving our dog with non-family members for a week... but after meeting Arlene and her husband, we were confident that Murphy would be in good hands. He had a wonderful week while we were gone. Arlene kept us updated with pictures and messages throughout the week.

Arlene took great care of my dogs while we were out of the country. One of my dogs has allergies and she called when the dog was scratching so much to see if there was anything else that she could do. They came home and slept for a day!
Arlene was easy to get ahold of and quick to reply to all messages. Her rates are the best I've seen!! Our dogs loved the freedom of running around the back yard---almost a little too much as we needed to reset some boundaries when they got home :). I would definitely recommend Arlene for an easy-going place to board our dogs.
