About Tara Jessica

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Chateau de Pups provides a 5 star staycation for your beloved canine! Your precious pup will be treated like one of the family! Your dog will have lots of TLC and watchful supervision.
I have experience caring for dogs of all ages, from puppies to seniors. I have also cared for dogs of all shapes and sizes, from 10 pound chihuahuas to 100 pound Bernese Mountain dogs.
For over ten years, I was highly involved in rescue work, helping strays get off the streets of south central LA. My own dog is a rescue who I found on a school campus in Compton, California.
Chateau de Pups has recently "relocated" from Santa Monica, CA to Lake Zurich, IL.

Tara took great care of our black lab babies while we were on vacation. She sent text message updates several times a day and included pictures too! She made sure to follow the instructions we left on food, walks and exercise.
Tara did a short overnight trial before our long trip to make sure she was comfortable and so that we could address any questions or concerns. She also did a test walk with me and our youngest lab who can be a stinker to ensure she knew how to handle her.

I couldn't have been more pleased with Tara's care for our dog, Cocoa. She and her pup Foster came to our home for a weekend stay. Cocoa is a very old and crotchety Shitzu and really needs some special attention. Tara dealt with all my dog's special issues and gave me the confidence I needed that Cocoa was in the best of hands all weekend. Tara sent regular updates and photos which helped a lot. My husband and I came home to a tidy house and a happy pup. I will definitely call on Tara again.

Tara is amazing! She is highly professional, while at the same time being sweet and outgoing. She stayed at our house and took such incredible care of our big pup. She kept us updated with texts and photos all weekend, which we obviously loved. We feel so lucky to have found her; she is absolutely now our go-to for dog care.

Tara was a wonderful host for our puppy when we went away for the weekend! She was responsive throughout the process, and great about sending us frequent updates so we knew our little girl was having the best time. We were confident that our dog was safe and well cared for! We will definitely use Tara again!

Tara was absolutely amazing. I was very apprehensive about leaving my dog behind when I traveled - especially over the holidays - but I couldn't have made a better choice. Tara visited beforehand to get acquainted with Maddie & to make sure she knew her routine as to make the staycation as comfortable as possible for my pup.
Tara took Maddie to the puppy park (her favorite!) daily and sent multiple updates every day to show me just how much fun they were having and how well taken care of she was. She even let her sleep in bed with her which to me is HUGE. I absolutely recommend Tara & I'm sure Maddie does too! I will definitely be calling her again anytime I need to go out of town!

Tara was absolutely wonderful! She was super responsive, sent frequent updates and treated Duddley as if he were her own. I would definitely recommend Tara and wouldn't hesitate to have her host Duddley again. I don't think Duddley was the ideal guest, but Tara had great compassion and patience with him and she is a wonderful hostess!

Tara was a fantastic host for our dog Eli. They went to the dog park every day and she sent photos of him several times throughout the trip. She is very nice and responsive. She treated our dog like her own. You couldn't find a better host while you're gone.
