About Atar

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
As a vet's daughter and lifelong animal lover, I possess care information about many, many types of dogs and animals. I love doing my research on each breed or species of animal so I know how to best interact with them and, most importantly, get them on my side as quickly as possible.

You can rest assured that your little ones will be handled by someone with plenty of common sense, an understanding of animals and their behavior as well as someone with a vet on speed dial.

My partner and I love welcoming new dogs into our hearts and home. Each new friend is treated with love and caring, cuddles and cozy places to bundle up in!

I truly look forward to hearing from you and meeting your loved ones!

I hate to say this, but we were disappointed after leaving our dog with Atar for a week. We had had a meet and greet, and we found her to be very sweet, and we could see our dog felt comfortable.
However, the first issue we had was that Atar was really, really sick at dropoff. This was a huge issue for us, since I was traveling to see my elderly parents, and my Mom resides in a memory care facility. Atar did tell me she wasn't feeling well, but only AFTER I gave her a hug. Later, in a text, she said she had the flu. This was very upsetting to me. I did become ill during our vacation. My illness kept me away from my Mom, as I wouldn't expose her or the other residents to my illness. We would expect that Atar would have told us to not come into her home if she had the flu, and I remain heartbroken that I spent much of our vacation being sick.
I was worried about an impending snowstorm, and asked Atar how she would handle that . She didn't seem to understand that this was an issue for me. I asked her to shovel a spot so he could go relieve himself. He is a 13 pound dog, and we were expecting a foot of snow....when I asked she said "He'll just go out and come back in. Dogs are resilient." I explained that snow gets stuck in his fur and turns to ice, she said she'd put a heater on. All of it made me uncomfortable.
Atar did not initiate contact with us at all during our trip. I waited, and she never texted unless I did. Just...not what I thought was going to happen.

Atar was awesome with our little guy Socks. She was very responsive and provided updates throughout his stay. She was very accommodating to a last minute request as well which we were very thankful for.
Atar was a wonderful sitter for my pup. We didn't have a chance to meet-and-greet before our drop-off but I instantly felt comfortable with her and her home. She has a wonderful and kind energy and clearly loves taking care of animals. Knowing her father is a vet gave me peace of mind in case anything went wrong, I knew she could handle it. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a great Dogvacay host!

Max and Milo enjoyed their stay with Atar.
Atar was a great sitter for our dog while we spent the day at the Culinary Institute. She greeted us bright and early and made sure she understood our dogs needs. She also brought Bentley to us in the evening so we could enjoy a few extra hours on our own. She kept in great contact with us before and during. I would not hesitate to use her services again.

Two firsts:
We found DogVacay, and then we found Atar!

Atar & Adam!

This was our very first time needing to place a pet with someone who wasn't family, and we were heading out of the country...
Atar's warm welcome of our dog (& us) at the meet & greet instantly put us at ease. We knew her warmth and caring (& flexibility) was a great match for our 11 month mischievous (& large) labradoodle puppy! Her kindness & attentiveness were so appreciated.

Atar was so great! She was so very friendly and professional. She asked many questions about Coach when we arrived to make sure she covered everything and we felt 100% comfortable leaving him with her. It seemed like he had such a good time, too! Would highly recommend her.

Atar is a very nice person and working with her was a pleasure. I believe my dog enjoyed his stay with Atar and I would definitely use her services again, or recommend her to a friend.
It is clear that Atay is a dog lover and makes her visitors feel like they are at home. She took great care of our dog Daisy and I will definitely use her again.
