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

Amazing sitter...super responsive and easy to communicate with. Sent lots of pictures and am pretty sure my doggies had an excellent time there. Thanks!!!
I needed to leave for a few days in order to finish shooting a TV show in the desert. I found Tara the same day I needed to leave.

Shadow, my dog, has used DogVacay in the past and has thoroughly enjoyed staying with dogs. Unfortunately, this time he decided he was going to have a tantrum.

Tara did a perfect job though at letting me know and keeping me informed on how Shadow was doing, keeping him under control as I know, when he does this, he can be a pain. He had to be kept separated from Tara's family dog, but managed to become friends with her by the end of my trip, which was so awesome to hear.

When I got Shadow back he was happy, his poops were healthy and normal and he genuinely seemed like he had such a great time with the family. The pictures sent of him playing with the kids and in the back yard made me so happy to see :)

Thanks again Tara, you made the situation, that was created from no fault of your own, and helped make it work. Would totally recommend this family and the location they live in.

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.
