I am aware that it is a great responsibility to be entrusted with the care of someone else’s pet, or their home. This awareness drives me always to give of my best, as I aim for the highest physical and mental well being of the animals in my care. Here is what some of my clients have said…
Arianna has given me a really useful foundation to build on
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Arianna for anyone wanting to better understand their dog. I really appreciated her analytical approach but also her ethos of helping a dog to feel as free and happy as possible, which drives her way of working. Arianna has given me a really useful foundation to build on and a much better understanding of how to support Ziggy as he settles into life in Scotland.

My husband called her the ‘dog whisperer’
I cannot believe how lucky I was to come across Arianna when looking for some help with puppy training. Arianna took the time to learn about me and my family, understand our wants and needs for the new puppy, and most importantly gained the immediate trust from the puppy, Alfie, almost immediately. After her first visit to the house, my husband called her the ‘dog whisperer!’ The obedience Alfie had when Arianna was around in the early days was amazing to watch and quickly helped build my confidence!

She truly loves the animals she cares for like they are her own
I have only the best things to say about Arianna. She truly loves the animals she cares for like they are her own and she goes above and beyond with the services she provides in every way possible. Arianna helped me with training and walking my dog Laika. Laika is an Egyptian street rescue and a fairly complicated dog but this did not phase her. Arianna helped me so much with techniques to work on our bond and engagement together and really helped me out in times of need, she always gives extra from a real love of what she does. On top of that Laika adores her!
She is undoubtedly our best find since we moved to Edinburgh
We are delighted to recommend Arianna and Mindful Pets. Arianna built a strong rapport with our pet dog Brodie – his excitement and joy at seeing her not only reassuring but wonderful to see. Arianna’s expert advice on his development was also most welcome by us as first time pet owners. Throughout we found Arianna extremely trustworthy and flexible – always going above and beyond for your pet she is undoubtedly our best find since we moved to Edinburgh.
Trustworthy, capable and very kind
Arianna has looked after our house and young very lively large terrier Monty twice and we would heartily recommend her. She is very knowledgeable regarding dog behaviour and has an easy, loving way of dealing with pets and their owners. Our dog adored her and was delighted to be taken on long walks to many different places. He met lots of new friends and behaved impeccably! She can also calm dogs down when needed and is very careful to spend time observing the dog to find out how it “ticks”.
While we were away, she kept us updated with emails and videos that assured us that both she and our dog were having a good time! She also took the dog to the vet when she noticed that he had an eye infection and administered the medication. Our house was left spotless and the dog was happy and relaxed. We look forward to welcoming Arianna back again soon.
Arianna has taught me how to keep him calm and obedient
Arianna has been a godsend to me in helping with the training of my bulldog puppy. I have a severe form of arthritis which means that I cannot easily run after my dog to keep it under control. Arianna has taught me how to keep him calm and obedient and to mix well with other dogs, adults and children. She also looked after him over the weekend of my daughter’s wedding. I could not have left him in better hands and he had a great weekend, evident from the videos and pictures that Arianna sent me. I would have no hesitation in recommending Arianna to anyone looking for kind and patient training for their dog
She is responsible and reliable and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her
Arianna has several times looked after our two cats who are not easy customers. But she had them eating out of her hand and cared for them very well. She is responsible and reliable and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her as a pet and house sitter. She is also great company and fun to have around.
She has given us lots of expert advice on training and diet
Arianna has been looking after our two-year-old French bulldog, Misty, since she was a puppy. She takes Misty on walks and also house sits/pet sits for us when we are on holiday, when she also looks after our two cats. Misty absolutely adores Arianna. They have a very strong bond which has been built because of Arianna’s enthusiasm and exuberance for Misty’s well being and happiness. She is clearly passionate about the care of all animals, patient and full of knowledge. She has given us lots of expert advice on training and diet, and always has interesting insights into Misty’s personality and behaviour. When Arianna stays in our house she is very respectful and leaves it absolutely spotless and tidy. She is flexible and helpful, lovely to communicate with and we feel very lucky to have her as part of Misty’s family! We would not hesitate to recommend Arianna to other pet owners.
The dogs love her and she looks after them superbly
Arianna has looked after our two dogs (small Lurcher and black Labrador) twice. I thoroughly recommend her. The dogs love her and she looks after them superbly, I think they’re rather sad when we return. Our Labrador has been limping badly and has had x-rays, scans and heavy painkillers which have solved nothing. In addition to looking after our dogs, Arianna took the trouble to find out about an animal physio whom we might think of using. This set us on course to treatment – with vet approval – for the Lab and as a result of all this he he significantly better. We are all, dogs and humans, hugely grateful to Arianna for suggesting it.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Mindful Pets
We have a very nervous cat called Dolly, who was abused before we rescued her. We hate leaving her alone as she is so timid and afraid of strangers. Arianna has immediately bonded with Dolly and using her psychological training has helped her build up her confidence, this allowing us to go away for weekends, safe in the knowledge that our precious pet is being cared for. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mindful Pets.
We have been delighted with the genuine care and affection she has shown to our animals
Arianna has looked after our dog, our cat and our house on a number of occasions. We have been delighted with the genuine care and affection she has shown to our animals. In addition, when we have returned to the house it has been in an immaculate clean condition. We would not hesitate to recommend Arianna to anyone looking for a house and pet sitter.
She is one in a million
Arianna looked after my two cats, Lotte and Ruby, and my flat for six weeks and she did an amazing job. Not only did she keep me updated with little stories and pictures, but she also made sure to follow the routine my cats were used to. When I came back both of them seemed happier than before (they weren’t even upset with me) and the flat was spotless. I would recommend Arianna to everyone and I will also use her service in the future again. Her reliable and trustworthy nature struck me when I first met her for an interview. She is one in a million.
I was fully satisfied and felt that my dog was in the best hands
I have known Arianna Corona for some years. She usually was my dog sitter when I was on holiday, coming to my home, feeding my dog, taking him for walks and playing with him. I entirely trust Arianna as she is a very reliable person. You understand immediately that she is very fond of animals, dogs as well as cats. Her integrity shows in the condition of my home and the happiness and contentment of my dog when I come home. I was fully satisfied and felt that my dog was in the best hands. So I can recommend her without any hesitation.
I only have praise for Arianna
Arianna looked after our dog and home on a regular basis for almost a year (September 2015-July 2016). She was extremely loving and kind to our dog and gave him lots of attention; he was always very happy to see her and enjoyed playing with her. Arianna is extremely reliable and always keen to help out. I only have praise for Arianna – I always knew I would come home to a well looked after dog and home. I would highly recommend her service.
I would not hesitate to recommend Arianna to anyone looking for a house sitter
Arianna has looked after our house and two cats on several occasions. We have been away for up to ten days at a and have returned each time to a spotlessly clean house and two very happy cats. Arianna is a very nice and friendly person who genuinely loves the animals in her care. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a house sitter.
We could not have found a more caring dog walker
I was recommended Arianna by the Just Dogs shop in Stockbridge. When my husband had a motorbike accident and was unable to walk our 15 year old English Springer Spaniel, Ella, Arianna stepped in to help. Arianna quickly gained Ella’s trust, and we knew that Ella was safe in her hands.
Arianna is very kind, gentle and thoughtful and always making sure that Ella, as a more senior dog, is comfortable with the exercise she is having, and gives great attention to her. Arianna is a very trustworthy person to deal with, always cheerful and friendly. We could not have found a more caring dog walker and I cannot recommend Arianna highly enough.
We found Arianna trustworthy, reliable and super with Bracken
We made contact with Arianna when we were looking for someone to stay in our house and look after our cat Bracken for a few days. We met Arianna when she visited ahead of the stay and we were entirely happy to entrust our cat and house to her. Everything turned out well and we found Arianna trustworthy, reliable and super with Bracken. Bracken was clearly spoilt rotten and keeps asking us when Arianna is coming back! We look forward to inviting her to stay for our next trip away.
Each animal is treated as an individual
Why are we happy to recommend Arianna Corona for walking or house sitting your pets? Arianna is highly trained as a psychotherapist, she worked for 10 years, she has good references to that effect. She is worked for us in Stockbridge. She is honest and reliable so that we are happy to give her our keys, if we were to go away, to leave her in charge. She now uses her considerable therapeutic skills with animals. She is a vegetarian and she loves animals, she is as dedicated to them, as she was to her patients, but animals are sometimes not as stressful as working with people! Each animal is treated as an individual, she works on any behavioural problems they might have, Conrad, our dog, does not jump up as much and his recall is much better. He also has a lot of wonderful doggy fun. She is empathic and insightful and dedicated to this work. Arianna is an easy person to work with, and we could not have anyone better for our dog. We are very pleased and would happily recommend her to anyone for their pets.
We had complete confidence and trust in Arianna
Arianna looked after our dog on several occasions, including staying in our house when we were away. We had complete confidence and trust in Arianna, and were delighted with the happy and well adjusted state of our dog when we returned. On the occasions when we met Arianna later by chance on a dog walk, our dog was always very pleased to see her again.
