About Tamara

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
PUP THERAPY for us, PEACE OF MIND for you!
I am a stay at home mom with two young children. We would love the privilege of taking care of your baby! We do not have any pets so yours will get undivided attention.

We are an active family and spend many hours outdoors, either playing in the yard or walking the trails to the various Daniel Island parks. I believe the world is our classroom, so we love to take trips to the beach, the mountains, downtown Charleston and just about anywhere we can explore God's creation. Let us take your dog along! When your dog needs a break, he/she can relax in our fenced in back yard where there is lots of sun and shade, on the porch with a fan, or in the house, where he/she will be free to roam around.*

I have tons of experience with all kinds of pets (lizards, mice, hamsters, bunnies, cats, Guinea pigs, chickens, an opossum (!) and, of course, many dogs). As an infant I shared my playpen with a litter of 8 pups! All through my childhood we owned dogs and bred dogs. I have owned a rescue greyhound and two sweet but rambunctious rescue golden/Labrador/other mixes. My husband also grew up with dogs. My son (5) and daughter (3) adore them! They are very gentle and will spend lots of time playing with and cuddling your pup.

Thank you for considering our family. We look forward to meeting yours!

* Although I am generally home all day, I may be gone for a short period of time to take the kids to and from preschool or run a quick errand. During this time your dog is always welcome and encouraged to join me (especially if your dog loves car rides as much as mine did!) or will be left at home in a sectioned off area. If your dog prefers a crate, please bring one with you.

Tammy is a great pet sitter. She has lovingly cared for my two dogs. She pays special attention to the details that make for a good experience. She made sure my dogs were comfortable, had toys to play with, snacks and plenty of walks. I would highly recommend her because she is an animal lover and an honest person whom I trust. Your pets are in good hands.

We needed to leave Bentley for 5 days while we were away skiing. Tammy and her family were great and loved on Bentley maybe even more than we do!! They regularly went on car rides and walks, and Bentley even got to go to the beach! Tammy was good about sending us pictures and updates while we were away too. We will definitely be using Tammy again the next time that we travel and need a loving home for Bentley to stay at, highly recommend!
Tammy is amazing with our dog! Lucy feels that she is with her other family when she visits. The whole family is great with her and provides tons of exercise and opportunities for play! Tammy always sends the best photos of her fun vacation and I never have to worry knowing that she is being loved and pampered. Communications are easy and quick and it's the absolute best experience for pup and owner imaginable!
Tammy did an amazing job of taking care of our dog! She was fantastic about accommodating drop off and pickup times and did a great job at communicating during Lucy's stay with tons of photos and updates! Her active family gave our pup lots of love and exercise. It made for a wonderful trip to know that our four legged family member was happy too!
This is the second time my dog has stayed with Tammy and her family, and it was great! Unfortunately, my pup got sick while I was gone, but Tammy immediately took him to the vet and got him the care he needed! Although it's not fun to get the call that your pup is sick (it was his own fault for eating plants!), it was very comforting knowing Tammy took care of the situation ASAP and treated my pup as if he was her own. It's very reassuring knowing next time I leave my dog with Tammy that he is in the best of hands! I really appreciated how well she took care of my dog and will always come back to this family time and time again, they really take care of your dog and love them unconditionally as you would yourself! My pup has begun to recognize when we are going to Tammy's and gets super excited now! I definitely recommend this family for everyone!
Tammy and her family are honestly better than any kennel money can buy! She and her kids played with my pup constantly, took him on several long walks a day, and sent me daily pics and updates! Her two children are so loving and gentle with the dogs and truly miss them in between vacations! I cannot express how highly I think of this family and how much I owe them for taking such great care of my fur baby!
Tammy was an incredible host. I wish I could give her 6 stars. She took outstanding care of my pup and kept me updated with plenty of pics. She even brought him on a camping trip. I highly recommend Tammy and she is now my go-to dogsitter in Charleston.
Piper had so much fun with Tammy and family. They took such good care of him; sending us updates regularly. We plan to book with Tammy again. I'd highly recommend her to anyone.
Tammy is "pawsome"! She cared for my pitt bull mix and 5 month old golden retriever puppy. Her profile lists dog that are less than 40lbs but she made an exception for me because I was in need. They had a great time because they love walks and children and got plenty of both.
Tammy was incredibly patient, kind and understanding with our new puppy! Lucy loved all the attention with kids and a perfect backyard for playtime. I loved knowing that she was getting a whole family devoted to her care and tons of excercise!
