About Tara

Hi - my name is Tara! My husband and our family live in Howard on three acres of land in a quiet undeveloped area. Our neighbors have another nine acres and the neighbor next to them have a farm! The only other people around us is a horse stable across the street, Greenfield Acres. All of their dogs (Anna, Max and Millie) come over daily to play with our three dogs, get a treat and some extra loving. Our home is very dog friendly - almost no carpet, many dog beds/toys/balls, food and water bowls out at all times, a doggy pool and treats always on hand. I've loved animals my whole life and have grown up with dogs. I cannot image life without them and yes, we do spoil them :) We have two labs, Reese who is a chocolate lab; he is seven, Charlie is our yellow lab; she is six. We have had both of them since they were eight weeks old. About two years ago we adopted a chihuahua who was homeless. Kenneth is small, but he acts like the big dogs! I am a stay at home home to a 4 year old boy. We also have two older daughters that attend Bay Port High School. I would love to meet your dog(s).

Our furry child Chloe thoroughly enjoyed her stay with Tara. Chloe quickly integrated herself into the home and family and came home exhausted! I appreciate Tara's quick response to my emails, as well as providing pix of her escapades. We will be coming back again!

Tara and her family were awesome. So glad they took care of Pugsley for me. Tara frequently sent texts and pictures as to how he was doing. I would highly recommend her. If there was the ability to give her 10 stars, I would!
Tara was great to work with and really good with our dogs! We really appreciate that she came out in advance to get the details.
We were very happy with Tara taking care of our dog Lucky. She sent us daily pictures and videos our Lucky . We can't say enough about the way in which she took care of him. We look forward to having her watch Lucky in the future. She was wonderful.
Great experience. Nala really seemed to have enjoyed herself at Tara's house.
Our stay with Tara was wonderful! Our dogs have never been boarded so we were a bit nervous leaving them, but Tara made us feel so comfortable! She sent so many pictures and video updates that we never had to wonder how they were doing! They are so flexible as well. Tara and her family made this process such a breeze, we can't thank them enough! We will definitely be back!

Tara and her family are fabulous! Right away you know they are a dog loving family where the pets are part of the family. We immediately felt comfortable. Tara sent pictures throughout their stay. We will rebook with Tara in the future!
Tara is awesome!!! This was the first time I have left my pups with anyone since a bad experience at a boarding unit. She was able to send me video updates and pictures and really kept me in the loop on Max and Lily. I am so comfortable with Tara, I plan on bringing them back again very soon. It is quite apparent she loves dogs and knows what she is doing. Thanks again Tara, see you soon!!

Bella was in very good hands; she seemed very well adjusted and looked like she had a blast with the other dogs and lounging by the pool. Tara updated me daily with pictures and videos and that made me feel at ease with leaving her for a week. I will definitely bring Bella back.

Tara has a great set up and we were so happy with her and how much she communicated with us while he was there.
Tara was awesome. She sent us updates and photos throughout Charlie's Vacay. We felt completely comfortable and at ease leaving him there. Upon pick up, I could see how much Tara loves dogs. I actually think Charlie may have had a more fun vacation than we had.

It's very evident how much Tara LOVES dogs. She took wonderful care of our dog and our sons dog while we attended our youngest sons wedding. We had no worries the whole weekend and knew our dogs were being well taken care of!

Thank you Tara and Fran

Meatball really enjoyed his stay with Tara and her family. She kept us updated during our trip with pictures and videos. Will be using her again in the future.
Tara & her family were wonderful. My dogs loved their stay. They were very comfortable there & made themselves right at home. They enjoyed their time so much; they only wanted to sleep when they got home. The pics/posts Tara sent were great. We loved seeing them & couldn't wait for the next one. Definitely will be using them again...actually going on right now to set up their next DogVacay!

We couldn't be happier with the stay our dog Ripley had at Tara's! We received picture updates, videos and texts over the few days we were gone. I'm pretty sure he played the entire time he was there! We will definitely be coming back. Thanks so much Tara and family! :-)

Tara is amazing and I highly recommend her! Our dog was loved and cared for by the entire family - an evident love of dogs in this home. Wonderful communication and picture/video updates!
Lily enjoyed both Tara's human family and furry members. She loved her visit! Thanks to all.
Tara and her family are absolutely amazing. Our dog jumps for joy every time he sees Tara.... We are so lucky to have her, I couldn't imagine a better place for him to be while we are away!
I had a wonderful experience leaving my old pup with Tara! I have never left our family pet with anyone other than family before, and was a bit nervous about it initially, but Tara spoke with me before his stay and was so welcoming with our dog. I loved how laid back the entire experience was: I could drop off and pick up at my convenience, I didn't need to bring anything really, and Tara kept in touch with me each day. My kids just loved seeing pictures of their dog each day having a good time, playing well with other dogs, snoozing on beds, and lounging in the sun! It was so obvious he was treated with the same kind of love and attention he gets at home, and we will definitely use Tara again when we travel next!

Tara, family and home, were perfect. I have an insecure dog and Tara made her feel at home. Our dog was there for nearly 13 hours and they treated her as one of their own. I got regular updates throughout the day which helps so you can enjoy your time away knowing that your pet is in good hands. We plan to have our furry friend return soon. Hats off to a great place. I highly recommend.

Lily had the best time. It was difficult to leave my 6 month old puppy for the first time, but the frequent updates, pics, and video put my mind at ease. Nice to know she was with a family that showed her lots of love Plenty of exercise and she was pooped out when I got her home. Thanks Tara for taking care of my precious Lily.

Great video updates and tons of doggie playtime!
Tara and her whole family were wonderful! They gave our dogs lots of love and attention and sent me daily updates and pictures. Will definitely bring our dogs there again
Wow what a great place for dogs!! Tara was amazing with our dog and sent tons of pictures and videos to us so we could see just how much fun our dog was having. Awesome to see how well he was taken care of and loved by her family while in her care. We will definitely be using her in the future and love that we have found such a great place for our dog to go on vacation!!

Tara and her family were awesome. My dog Bernie is an older dog, almost 15 years but he did great with them. We on vacation for an extended time and we worried about being away that long but Tara made us feel better by sending pictures through out our vacation and giving us updates.

Tara and her husband were great to work with. Our dog had a wonderful time staying/playing at their house over the weekend. Wore her right out. Will definitely use them again when in the area.
Would HIGHLY recommend Tara! I was a little leery about doing something like this but man I'm glad I did! Our dog was so well cared for! She sent plenty of pictures and video daily with updates on how he was doing, which was awesome! Our dog has literally been sleeping for 2 days since got home because he was so exhausted from all the playing. SUCH a better alternative than the standard boarding. She did a great job and we will definitely be using her again when we go out of town.

Our dog's stay was fantastic! I literally can't think of how it could have gone better. He was spoiled spoiled spoiled! It was wonderful getting all of the texts and photos to see that he was doing well. Tara and her family were not phased at all that he was a high energy puppy. He was exercised thoroughly every day. It gives me great peace of mind knowing we have some where loving and safe and fun to bring him from now on! It went way beyond our expectations!!!!

Tara is a wonderful person who provided excellent care for our dog. It is evident that she truly cares about dogs and went above and beyond to make sure our dog was comfortable. My dog seemed to thrive in her home and Tara is easy going and helped me relax knowing my dog was in her care. I highly recommend her if you are in need of a loving, caring home for your pet sitting needs.

Tara and family loved our Max, and Max loved them too. We appreciated the frequent updates, and care for us and our dog. We highly recommend Tara. :)
Tara was awesome! She sent me daily updates with photos. I had to board Toby over Christmas, so Tara sent me a photo with Toby right in the middle of the gift opening Christmas morning. He even got his very own Christmas gift! He had three other dogs to play with all weekend and lots of room to run. Tara was quick to respond to emails/texts. I would definitely use her again.
