We had a Great Dane, named Henry. He was a rambunctious, smart, fun loving 235lb pain in the neck that we loved as if he was our child. We started having Arat frequently take Henry for the day. He would come back so exhausted that he would fall asleep while eating. When Henry would hear Arat's car he would get as excited as if we had come home. Arat and Henry established an amazing connection. When Henry was diagnosed with terminal cancer, Arat would visit just to brighten Henry's day. Arat is a good man who is trustworthy and dependable. As far as we're concerned, he is Portland's Dog Whisperer.

We have been using Arat for over 4 years, since Tucker was a puppy. He is extremely dependable and great with dogs! Tucker is always excited to see him and comes home exhausted after a full day of play. I really appreciate how Arat accommodates my schedule and can often take Tucker without much notice if he has extra room... Gives me great peace of mind if I am gone all day that my dog is being well cared for and active! I highly recommend Arat!
We have known Arat for about 7 years. Our Sadie girl was very shy around other dogs, but Arat changed that. She warmed right up to him, as well as the dogs in his pack. We call Arat the "dog whisperer"! We were amazed that she would run and jump in the car with all the other dogs without any hesitation on day two. She always came home a happy girl. We recommend Arat to all our friends!

Arat has been providing daycare for my little Lulubelle since she was a puppy and she's 8 years old now. I am gone 10 hours a day and can't bear the thought of her being alone that much. When Arat shows up at the front door Lulu gets very excited. He picks her up with such care and seems to genuinely love her. She wraps her little paws around his neck and out the door they go. I have total peace of mind when Lulu is with Arat.
I met Arat at a dog park and was so impressed with how he handled his dogs that I asked him for help with my newly rescued puppy. Since then, he has become a family member to us and takes care of all of our dogs. He has trained 3 of them and the pack was recently called well adjusted and well behaved!!! Such a compliment!
Arat is the best! He kept my pit bull babies Peggy Sue and Harvey over the holidays and I never worried a second. Arat is extremely professional and my dogs immediately felt comfortable with him. I wouldn’t trust anyone more, honestly. So happy to have found Arat!
I’ve know Arat for years and am always impressed with how dogs adore and obey him. He has watched my dog Mona many times over the past few years and she has become very close to him. For an afternoon walk or a week long stay, she is always very well taken care of and I feel lucky to have met him!
