About Tara

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Rest in peace knowing your pets are in loving hands.

About us: My name is Tara and my partner Shane and I have been house & pet sitting the last three years. We both work remotely from our laptops, I am a graphic designer/website owner and Shane has a degree in marketing. Allowing us to spend the days with your pet and giving them plenty of love and attention.

We both enjoy the outdoors, travel, vegan cuisine and pretty much anything that allows us to get involved with animals! We are always on the move, so don't hesitate to contact us about sitting for you, we travel where the pets take us!

A little about our services:

Picture updates - We are happy to send you picture updates daily.

Supervision - We both work remotely, this will allow us to give your dog our undivided attention and spend the day with them.

Dog Park - If you are comfortable with your dog going to the dog park, this is something we like to do daily.

Walks - Depending on the dog and owners instructions. We normally do about 1-2 hours worth of walks a day.

House Sitting - We are definitely willing to travel further than 25 miles to house sit if you are interested in our services. Please send a message first and we can further discuss.

Medication - If you have a dog that needs medication. There will be an additional charge of $5 per day. We have plenty of experience with oral medication.

Aggressive Dogs - I do Not normally sit aggressive dogs. Since we do travel with our small 9lb dog, I would not want to put him in harms way with a larger aggressive dog. If you have a small dog with aggressive tendencies, shoot me a message first and we can discuss.

House Sitting Experience - We have house sat from as little as 1 day to 6 weeks. We are open to long term house sitting, and do offer special rates for extended stays. The longer the stay, the further we are willing to travel.

*Please keep in mind that we do travel with our small 9lb Chiweenie, Little Bear. He is very well behaved, gets along well with other dogs (not a big fan of puppies) and house trained. However...there are times that Shane may house sit in one location and I another. It is not uncommon that Little Bear may stay at the other residence.

Tara is awesome! We are so happy we found her and feel much better about leaving our dogs and our house knowing that she will be taking care of them. We loved getting the updates. Our dogs usually get upset when we are gone and this time they seemed great when we got home. We highly recommend Tara.

We are repeat guests, and Tara took good care of our pup like always :)
We highly recommend Tara! She is simply wonderful! We loved receiving photo and video updates throughout our trip, and genuinely felt that our pets were being well taken care! Would definitely work with Tara in the future!
Tara was great with Pepper. I received daily picture updates of Pepper playing at the dog park or wrestling with toys. It was a very comfortable experience and I hope Tara is available next time I have to leave my pup.
This was our first time using DogVacay, and Tara M was great! She quickly responded to my messages and answered all of my questions. Tara even kept Bryan and I updated with photos and notes about Princess until we returned, and took such good care of our dog. I'm only saddened that Tara will soon be moving away from the area. I'm certain we will easily find another sitter through DogVacay when the time comes. Thank you, Tara!! You are the best!

Tara was a great host for my nervous maltese. Very accommodating. Looking forward to working with her again!
Tara was amazing!!! This was my first time using Dog Vacay and Marley's first time being left alone with someone other than family. I am so glad I chose Tara! Marley looked like she had a wonderful time while I was in Death Valley for the weekend, I loved all the photo updates Tara sent. Her dog Little Bear was so adorable too and well behaved! I love that her apartment had the dog park and room for Marley to run around and get her energy out. I definitely recommend Tara as a great pet sitter!

We had a wonderful experience with Tara! She took terrific care of our dog and I didn't worry for a moment while he was with her. I love that Tara was easy to communicate with and very reliable. She has a warm home and easy access to a great little dog park.

Tara was great with Mickey and Rusty. She sent us multiple photo updates which were great to have and see how our pups were doing. Tara has a little dog park in her complex which we loved and we new it was great for the pups as well. We love Tara and we will definitely go to her again!

From one doggysitter to another, you're awesome Tara!

Our little Chihuahua Porter spent the night with Tara and her little dog. You can tell that she loves animals and that she takes good care of any and all animals in her care. She was awesome with pick up and drop off times and is very flexible. She did an awesome job and we will definitely be using her again!

Tara and her companion are great! They graciously accommodated my late night drop off, and they took my Buster for walks, trips to the dog park, sent updates with photos, and provided him with lots of TLC!! Whenever I'm back in the Fresno area, I would definitely book with them again!
