About Tamara and Kevin


Dash Pet Service desires to help people and their pets live easier together.

When I provide your constant canine companion or feline friend the opportunity for midday exercise or just the ability to step outside for a potty break both you and your pet will be more relaxed at the end of the day.

Arriving home you will find your pet delights in your companionship, as usual. Yet, knowing Dash Pet Service has visited:
1. You have the peace of mind knowing your pet’s urgency to play can be deferred until you unwind, because Dash Pet Service already provided a workout or training.
2. Your aging animal’s “accidents” decrease with more frequent opportunities for elimination. Stress levels for you and your pet decline along with the need to clean because Dash Pet Service already took you animal outside.
3. You have already enjoyed Face-time (via i-phone) with your pet or text images of the day’s events
4. And you’ve received a daily report card sent via email or text to you

Going out of town? If the idea of boarding at a kennel scares you as much as it does your pet –
Consider a PetVacay at my home or yours. Dash Pet Service will board a maximum of two dogs, if they are already housemates, at a time (in addition to our own dachshunds). For cats (who are less interested in travel) Dash Pet Service only provides care in your residence.

Boarding services include:
For Dogs:
• A home environment – air conditioned on hot days and heated on cool days
• A Full hour of exercise with our dogs
• Feedings at your schedule
• Sleeping arrangements that suit your dog(s)
• Face-time (via i-phone) with your pet or text images of the day’s events sent to you
• A daily report card sent via email or texted to you

For Cats:
• Feedings at your schedule
• Cat litter box cleanings
• Face-time (via i-phone) with your pet or text images of the day’s events sent to you

If I could give Tamara and Kevin more than "5" STARS I would! They are both so caring and loving to both my dogs. Unfortunately, we moved to California. :( Beau and Chloe misses both Tamara and Kevin greatly. Looking forward to making a trip back to Washington with Beau and Chloe for a visit. Miss you guys!!
Tamara and Kevin are wonderful hosts. Their little dachshunds are great companions. We did a meet and greet first as it was Sadies' first stay. We had only had Sadie a few months before she went to stay over night and although she was wanting to stay in her space she was just fine. Tamara sent pictures to keep us up to date on how she was doing.
We will deffinatly use them again.
Best doggie day care ever! Thank you Tamara and Kevin. Your the BEST.
Can't say enough good about Tamara and Kevin. They are the BEST!!! Thanks so much to both of you for taking such great care of our pups!!
Our two pups love Tamara and Kevin. Thank you Tamara and Kevin for taking such great care of them!!
We always trust Tamara and Kevin with our two pups. They get plenty of love every time! Thanks so much Tamara and Kevin!!
We trust Tamara and Kevin with our two pups. They love spending time with them and are always well taken care of. Thanks to you both!!
Our two pups Love visiting Tamara and Kevin. They get lots of Love!
Tamara and Kevin are irreplaceable! Thank you both for being so wonderful :)
Tamara and Kevin are the best! They truly care and love our Beau and Chloe. Thank you both for loving our pups!
I have never met two people who genuinely care and love our two Bichon's. Tamara and Kevin have stole our hearts! Thank you for taking such great care of our pups :)
Tamara and Kevin treat my precious pup like family. I know she is getting the best possible care when I leave her at Tamara & Kevin's on a Dogvacay.
Doggie Play Day with Tamara was another great day for Beau & Chloe. They Love Tamara and Kevin!
They go beyond what is expected to help us and our baby's. We always feel comfortable when we are away if they are caring for our pups.
Another awesome experience leaving our two Bichons with Tamara and Kevin. Thank you so much for taking such good care of them!
Tamara and Keven were Awesome! I feel 100% comfortable leaving our 2 Bichon's with them again and again. Tamara sent daily updates on how our two pups were doing which I so appreciated. Thanks Tamara and Kevin! Braden & Judy
What an awesome first experience for both our dog,Bella.and us. Tamara gave pics and updates every day. We were worried since Bella is a rescue how she'd react. She played. She ate. And she was happy to see us when we picked her up.
Shelby loves to stay with Tamara and Kevin. They treat here like one of the family. We get at least 1 picture a day from them letting us know how she is doing. If there is anything you are concerned about they are sure to take care of it. We will continue to use them.
Always a wonderful experience working with Tammera and Kevin.
I can't say enough about Kevin and Tamara,
and their dogs. When we brought our dog over to meet their dogs the atmosphere was calm. They are obviously very happy. I knew I didn't have to worry about my pampered boy. There is lots of love for dogs in this home..
I also love getting the pictures every day.
Monty has stayed with Tamara and Kevin and their dachshunds many times. He is happy to arrive and has a great time there. He leaves as a happy dog also. We appreciate the photos taken during his stay and e-mailed to us by Tamara. I have gladly recommended them to others. I do that because of the loving care our dog receives when there that makes us comfortable leaving him in their care.
Kevin and Tamara have experience with dachshunds and did an outstanding job looking after mine. I will use them again if the need arrises!
Tamara took especially great care care of my 12yr old Golden Retriever Winston. She sent me pictures everyday,which was nice. When I pick him up,he is always happy! Wonderful people:)
I left Carly with Tamara & Kevin when a last minute family emergency came up and I had to go out of town. Carly had a great time! I received lots of pictures via text which helped me feel very calm.
Shelby had a great time with Tamara and her clan of dachshunds. She made sure to keep us updated on how Shelby was doing with texts and pictures. It was comforting to know that "our baby" was well taken care of in a nice home with plenty of fun and love. We will definitely be back!
Monty (our dog) is a repeat visitor to Tamara and Kevin's home with their dachshunds. He enjoys his visits there and gets along great with their dogs. Although he is a 50 pound labradoodle, he seems to think he is a dachshund when staying with his dachshund friends. We enjoy receiving the periodic photos of Monty during his stays. He is glad to see us when we return, but not anxious in any way, so we know he likes it at their place.
Once again, Kona was well taken care of while we were out of town. Able to leave her with peace of mind that she is safe and given the love and attention!
Once again we had a nice vacation knowing that Kona was well cared for by Tamara & Kevin. They take care of her as if she were their own! We appreciate the pictures and updates while we are away as well.
Thank goodness for Tamara and her pups. We know Oliver is in good hands when he is with them. Tamara communicates with texts and pictures throughout his stay. Her home is puppy-proofed and comes with a very friendly host pup, Fred, that shows everyone the ropes! We appreciate her wonderful care and company for our furry kid!
Our dog Monty as usual enjoyed his stay with Tamara, Kevin and their dachshunds. It seems to be his second home in that he is glad to see us return, but is at ease and comfortable when staying with them. This was his 3rd stay and he seems to know where we are going as we get near their home and he gets excited to see his friends again.
The care that Tamara and Kevin gave our dog Abby was amazing. They accepted her into their "family". It was a great comfort to know that she was well cared for. Abby loved her stay. We will definitely use them again.
Tamara and Kevin did an awesome job with our animals! Our dog, Zeke, warmed up to Kevin very quickly. Even our skittish dog, Sophie, was sleeping with Kevin by the end of the stay. We look forward to using their services again.
We were delighted with our standard poodle Sasha's care. She is 4 years old and had never spent a night away from us so we were very anxious about how she would do. Tamara managed our drop off to limit Sasha's distress (also our anxiety) quickly and with tact. Everyday she sent us 3 to 4 text messages with pictures. Her home is clean and pet friendly and the yard is small but pleasant. Sasha just regally ignored the 3 dachshunds who live there. Will we use Tamara's home again? Yes!!
I could not be happier with the care that my pomeranian, Kona, receives when staying with Tamara & Kevin! I feel so lucky to have found them!
Excellent care for our dog. Highly recommended.
Gigi always looks so happy after Tamara has been there. She really looks forward to the attention that Tamara gives her. It's nice that I get pictures when she arrives and when she leaves. There is a noticeable difference in Gigi's pictures. Glad to have her caring for Gigi.
I am so glad we found Tamara and her husband. We're so happy with the way they treated our dog Elby and can't wait to use her again in the future. The love and kindness, all the emails and photos, really made our vacation that much nicer. My youngest was very excited to get those photos too! Knowing Elby was safe and happy was wonderful. I highly recommend Tamara, she's awesome!!
It's been almost a week & Meh-lee still acts like she misses Tamara and her gang.
What an awesome lady...I was able to enjoy my trip knowing my dog was being well taken care of. I enjoyed receiving the daily up-dates. I now considerTamara's Meh-Lee's second home...she had a ball...and enjoyed her little playmates. Tamara treated her like she was one of her own. Thank You
As before when our dog Badger stayed with Tamara he had a great time and she did a good job. She has no trouble with feeding Badger his diet of raw chicken. She took him on long walks. She also sent me texts and pics of what he was up too. It's a comfort to know the while on vacation I have no need to worry about my pet that he is in good hands with Tamara and her family .
Pi Jiu always has an awesome with Tamara & the gang! Thanks again for taking such good care of our Pup Pup.
We decided to give Dogvacay a try after having boarded our dog at a kennel where he lost weight, bark was horse, and seemed tramatized. He did great at Tamara's, he doesn't get along with most dogs but seems to get along fine with fellow dachshunds like Tamara's. She was also fine with feeding Badger his special diet (raw chicken). She sent us texts with updates and pictures of Badger. We plan on boarding with her when we have future trips.
Tamara is fantastic and does great with my great dane. She is super friendly and really knows how to take care of a large breed dog. He was happy to stay with her and her husband and play with the weiner dogs! He had a great time and we received daily updates with pictures. It put us at ease knowing he was in good hands
Tamara was the best, she was very thorough with keeping in touch with me while I was gone, sent photos, took the extra care she needed for her special needs. I would definitely recommend and will use Tamara again! She is a sweet heart and loves the animals!
I went out of the country for 2 weeks, and it's the longest I've ever left my dog! I was nervous about it but Tamara and her pack were wonderful. She sent me frequent updates via email which included photos and videos. It was so comforting to see that Ricky was having fun from so far away, and I think it was a good experience for him to hang out with other dogs. When I got home it was like I hadn't even left. After a quick greeting Ricky brought me his ball to start playing. :-)
Thank you so much to Tamara for taking such good care of Pi Jiu. We know she an awesome time with you guys.
Tamara was excellent, very caring towards Parker
Parker had a great time. We received daily updates as well as pictures of him. It was a great experience for him to stay in someone's home rather than a boarding facility in a kennel
Pi Jiu's stay with Tamara, Kevin & the gang was awesome! Pi JIu seemed relaxed & not stressed at all. Tamara was great sending us texts & photos of Pi Jiu's stay. A great big thank-you for enabling us to have an overnight without stressing about our how our pup was. We knew she was in good hands. Will definitely be rebooking.
Love, love, love them!
