About Arune

19 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a nutritional and holistic coach, working from home and am a HUGE dog lover. I've been surrounded by dogs my entire life and have worked in many volunteer situations, animal shelters and rescues so if you're looking for someone experienced to leave your puppy with, look no further! Me and my husband reside on a large property with a giant yard and swimming pool that doesn't feel like Los Angeles at all and is a doggy paradise! Surrounded by trees and birds, settled near the Altadena Mountains, this is the perfect place for your pup to rest while you're away. We both have two doggies of our own: Bean who is an older gentle pyraneese and loves sleeping all day while dreaming of chasing squirrels as well as Manu, who is a very shy springer spaniel boy who loves when great play buddy friends stay over! I understand that it's stressful to leave your pup behind and that it's also stressful to them and that's why I focus on making the experience as happy and good for them as I can so that time that you go away doesn't have to be traumatizing but instead just simply a doggy holiday! I've worked with all sorts of dogs and truly can understand their psyche and needs and I realize that all dogs are different and have different personalities. I guarantee a safe, very peaceful and happy place for your best friend.

Each day I spend a lot of time with the dogs playing outside, I enjoy being outside in general while I garden or do my crafts and I love taking them for walks in the area as it's so quiet and beautiful around here. All the dogs have free roam inside the house and outside all day as the back door is open at all times and I never lock dogs outside at night. All dogs sleep inside with me as I have several doggy beds and four comfy couches that they can choose from to rest! I'm truly a caring and responsible person and I care for your doggy the way I would want someone to care for my very own!

The hosts were nice people, and everything turned out fine. But we were a bit put off because we arrived in the evening, and there were no lights. And the location was a pool house. Difficult to find.

When we opened the gate, all the dogs ran out, and it was hard to contain them. Also, there was just a two-foot fence to keep the dogs out of the pool area.

When we returned, nobody was there. They returned while we were picking up our dog. They said they were at the neighbors, and had someone staying at the pool house. We didn't see anybody.

Our dog was fine. He was well treated and safe. But I would hesitate to go back.

This was our second time to leave our dog with Arune. and it was great as we expected.
We left our two small dogs (a pug and a pekingnese/beagle mix) with Arune for the weekend and everything was superb. The dogs enjoyed playing with Arune's dogs and cuddling with Arune, too! She was very responsive to all of our messages while we were traveling. We will definitely have Pete and Penny vacay with her again and recommend her to others as well.

Really good experience for us and our Vizsla. Will use dogvacay again because of this lovely couple.
Arune was a wonderful host for Willis! A beautiful, large, and safe property was ideal for him. It was really nice to have 2 other sweet dogs for the company. Thank you, we would use Arune again to look after friends dogs in a second.
Arune was wonderful! Blue came home happy and much less stressed than other boarding experiences. She took him on a long walk and kept me updated with emails and pictures. She has a calm demeanor, which seems to help with Blue's anxious personality. Arune's dogs, Bean and Manu, were great playmates, especially Manu, who kept him occupied and less homesick. Overall, it was a worry-free experience and I will gladly use Arune again!

It was our first time to use dog vacay
Arune was a great dog sitter. She emailed me a very detailed activities of our dog and pics. We were kind of worried since our dog was very timid and shy around other dogs. But she eventually got very close to manu(her own dog) and even got into swimming pool a bit. It was a big steps for our dog.
We will definitely use her again for our next trip.
Thank you

She has a great space for the dogs to run around while she works from home. Our dogs got along great and she kept me updated with photos and videos of all the fun play and cute cuddling :-) Bailey had a great time and I'll be taking him there again soon!

I had a wonderful experience leaving my dog with Arune for an extended weekend stay. She is very friendly and I could tell she also cares deeply about dogs. Likewise, her dogs are laid back and friendly, and accepted my Boston terrier, Lazlo, into their space immediately. Arune was responsive to my emails and texts and sent me daily pictures and videos of my dog having a fabulous time playing with her dog, Manu. I was relieved that Lazlo was obviously comfortable and enjoying himself while I was away. Since returning home, Lazlo needed to rest up for a couple days after all that play. Thanks Arune, I think he had a great time! :)
