About Tara

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We live in a three-bedroom home with a medium size yard. Our garage is converted to an extra play room.

We have a cul-de-sac perfect for running a dog around in a secure location. We are approximately one mile from the beach and close to several "doggie" beaches.

We are an active family of six (four children). We are all dog lovers and our dog, Lily, goes just about everywhere with us.

We also take her to our kids' baseball games and she sleeps in the older boys' room. We take Lily on one of the dozens of trails throughout Carlsbad including the Batiquitos Lagoon nearby.

Our location is a perfect pet paradise for anyone vacationing here. We are a great alternative to a hotel. We have lots of love and fun to give and your pet will be well cared for.

We are special because we are very active, fun-loving, adventurous, and enjoy the companionship of dogs. My children will give lots of activity and attention. They drive us crazy wanting more dogs. This opportunity will provide a loving, responsible home for your pet, satisfy their need for more dogs while allowing Lily a doggie friend too.

We hope you will consider our perfect pet paradise! Aloha!

Brian, Tara, Chad, Joshua, Noah and Janaya

My 4 month-old Cockapoo mix, Gunther, stayed with Tara and her family for three nights over the holidays. Having only had Gunther for 1 month, I was a little worried about putting him in boarding, but Tara did a great job of sending photo updates twice a day while my family vacationed in San Diego. Socialization for my pup is extremely important to me, and I was happy to see photos of Gunther happily playing with other dogs and people of all ages. Tara and her family are true dog lovers and would definitely bring Gunther back in the future.
