Ariel is utterly dependable and patient with my special needs kids
For the first time in a long time I came back to well adjusted cats that didn't seem to be thrown off by someone new in their home
What a relief!

Ariel is wonderful with my elderly pug. She gives updates and detailed reports on how the visit is going. I trust her implicitly with my sweet girl.

Ariel was wonderful with our dog, and extremely patient and flexible with our weather related trip delays.

I would love to hike with your dog!

I am friendly and energetic animal lover, with over 30 years experience tending for various domestic animals, and also livestock! I grew up with dogs, cats, horses, goats, and cows. I love to care for any and all animals you have, though I DO hope you aren’t secretly keeping a cow in your bathroom. It’s bad for the tile and your landlord might get mad. Just sayin’.

All jokes aside though, I am a huge ...

What Ariel would like to know about your dog

I love ALL dogs, from the tiny and tender to the big and brawny. I love little bebe's, fine dames, and cranky old men.

Special Note:
I'm also trying to implement a (very loose) noon to noon policy, where I arrive and leave by noon. This is not set in stone, just make sure to let me know what times you need me to leave and arrive by in your first email. I only ask this because I frequently have back-to-back dog sits, and I want to make sure not to overlap new clients with preexisting clients engagements. If you need me to arrive earlier and stay later, I'm totally open to it as long as I haven't already promised another client to be at their place!

When Ariel watches your pet

I love to go hiking all over the Bay Area. Tilden and the Presidio are two of my facourite places to go. I also like to jog, and would love to tire your hyper dogs out in any and everyway I can. I like to explore, so I am happy to just walk your dog around the block if you prefer. Your neighborhood might be comforting and familiar to your dog but it’s all new to me!
