About Tara

*Site Under Construction
Booked for Thanksgiving :)

Philip and I are avid dog lovers; actually we are pretty obsessed with all animals and are strong animal rights advocates. We have a 12 year-old Lhasa Apso, named Rosie, who is pictured in my profile pic.
Rosie is full of personality. She cracks us up all the time, especially when she watches tv. Rosie can be very lazy; she loves naps and sometimes sits down on walks! She can also be perky and likes to play chase and play with toys (lambchop)! While she does not really physically "play" with other dogs anymore, Rosie does get excited and vocal around furry friends!

With Rosie being a senior, I'm used to administering eye drops and oral medications to Rosie daily. I'm also very used to specific diets and picky/spoiled eaters!


I recently moved to a larger house with a huge yard and will update this description ASAP! The address listed and photos are current ones!

Philip is a graphic designer who works from home, which is why we can happily offer 24/7 care, even during the weekdays! I am an elementary teacher, so I am home on weekends and I get home around 4 on weekdays to spend time with Philip and Rosie! I instill a love of animals in all my students and teach them how to respect animals. I’m that friend or neighbor that can’t wait to watch your pup while you’re away.

Philip and I both enjoy taking Rosie for walks on the Boardwalk and hikes around the Greenbelt. We can also have lazy days (especially Rosie) so be sure to let us know what your dog’s activity level is and we will be sure to accommodate it.

Whatever your dog prefers, whether it's a crate or sleeping on our bed, we are happy to make them comfortable. Treats, toys and their dog bed are always a good thing to bring along for them, to make them feel at home.

Unfortunately, due to living in an apartment, I can't really watch any dogs that bark a lot. Our apartment has pretty close quarters with my neighbors, so they have to be relatively quiet.
As you can see in some of the photos on my profile, our dog-friendly apartment complex is right on the Boardwalk that is connected to a large open field and a small, fenced in, off-leash dog park.
Other photos include inside our two bed / two bath apartment, pics of Rosie and other dogs we have had the pleasure of taking care of! More pics to come! Expect many pictures from us of your pup; it can be so hard to leave them!
Let me know if you have any questions for Philip, Rosie and me. Rosie is excited to have a sleepover with your pup!

oh my, i can't believe i forgot my rating after meeting such a wonderful person for loving and taking care of our dog. we got daily pictures and stories and arrived home to a happy, well cared for twinkle. thank you again!
Tara is really sweet and a great pet sitter. She took such good care of our little Susi. She walked Susi 2x/day, played with her and comforted her during a huge thunderstorm. Tara sent pictures and videos every day so we could see how much fun Susi was having. Tara also has a very meek and sweet Lhasa Apso that is a good companion for visiting doggies. I give Tara and lil' Rosie 5 stars!
