About Ariel

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
*Need boarding for an animal that's not a dog? Talk to me about custom pricing on other furry friends!*
*Ticks are predicted to be terrible this year, I do require everyone be treated for fleas and ticks*
*All full time daycare spots are full, but I still over daycare for random drop ins*

I'm incredibly accommodating!
Have an early or late drop off/pick up time? No problem!
Going to be late for your drop off/pick up? Still no problem!

Our home:
We live in a ground floor studio apartment, so we are easily accessible and the dogs will always be near. We have a handy gate that goes around the front door so your pup won't be able to dash out the door to the pizza man!
We have a wonderful private gated backyard. It's complete with a deck and a 5ft+ wooden privacy fence!
I still stand out and monitor the dogs while they're out in the yard, and poop gets picked up right away! Your dog will get plenty of potty breaks and exercise! But I will also make sure your dog will get walks if requested!
Your dog will also get to free roam the house, so it'll feel like a second home and not a kennel.
About me:
I moved to Chicago from Iowa back in April 2015. I used to work in daycare but now I am a freelance/stay at home artist/model.
My boyfriend and I are huge animal lovers. We have three cats. They had never been around dogs until I started with Dogvacay, but now that we have dogs here so often you would never know! They'll give the dogs a hiss if they feel uncomfortable, and they have a lot of places they can retreat to if they feel overwhelmed! We do ask that all animals be "cat friendly".
My boyfriend is a freelance carpenter, but he helps me with the animals on nights, weekends, and days off.

Restrictions:
I do require that when your pet is of age they be vaccinated and flea treated, this is for the protection of any other pets in the home. I also require pets to be neutered when they come of age, or if they are still intact they do not mark or have aggression issues. This once again is for the safety of other animals and property.
All pets must be friendly with others. I do not have an area to completely separate them if a pet isn't friendly. This includes any forms of aggression or barking. This is for the safety and comfort of all pets involved.

Your pet will also come home with a craft and some homemade dog treats.

So please message me if you have any questions!

Ariel is the BEST host ever!! She has hosted my dog twice and we just adore her. She's always so accommodating, friendly, and makes my dog feel right at home. She also keeps my Medusa busy while I'm away and she comes home with some awesome treats, toys and goodies! Ariel, thank you for all you do!

Ariel is a sweetheart and connects with your dog like it's her own! It was my first time leaving our 3mo puppy with someone for daycare, and I can't say enough good things. She is completely flexible on times, sends picture updates throughout the day, and gives him the personal attention he deserves. I trust her completely and couldn't be happier about having this option for our little fur baby. Thank you SO much!
