About Tara

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome my name is Tara, my family and I love animals and hold a special place in our hearts for dogs. We have a large fenced yard, enjoy taking walks and playing ball. My husband and I have 2 kids, a 11 year old boy and 9 year old girl. We love dogs and thought what better way to share our love for dogs than with a dog that needs love and attention while their family is away. You can rest assured that your beloved pet is in good hands and having fun during their stay. I only take one dog at a time so your dog will have our undivided attention while with us. I send photos via text to keep you at ease and up to date on how your best friend is doing. Contact me to set up a meet & great, I am sure you will be happy and more important your pet will be too!

I was so happy to have found Tara and her family. My Buffy spent two nights with them and came home healthy, happy and tired. They took her with them for Saturday morning games, car rides, and eventually, lounging by the pool. She repaid them (so I am told) by being well behaved and affectionate. I strongly suspect, that there was much couch cuddling involved.
Tara and her family were awesome as usual!!! This is Louie's third stay there and I couldn't be more happy with his stay!
Tara is a wonderful pet sitter. Her home and family are very welcoming and will treat your dog as one of their own. Highly recommend her!
Tara and her family took great care of Molly while my husband and I were away. She had a great time playing with Teddy too! It was nice to receive pictures of Molly looking so happy. We would definitely recommend Tara! :)
Tara and her family were awesome! She took amazing care of Eddy and Louie and kept me posted with texts and pictures! I felt so comfortable leaving my boys there while I was away! She has a really nice and clean home and with a fenced in yard which was perfect for my active dogs. Would highly recommend!
Guapo stayed with Tara for four days and came back home happy and relaxed. Tara stayed with us in touch via text messages and sent us photo update. She was also very flexible about pick up time. We highly recommend Tara and I think Guapo quietly misses her and her very welcoming family.
Tara and her family were great and Tullagh had a great time. We would definitely have Tara watch Tullagh again.
Tara and her family were GREAT to Candi during her stay!! Their yard is beautiful and our dog loves to be outside so that was perfect. Candi can't wait to visit again real soon.
Tara and her family were the perfect hosts for our Lucky! He's usually somewhat aloof when meeting new people but when we had our initial meeting Lucky really connected with Tara and even gave her a kiss, which he never does with strangers! The whole family was super nice and friendly and we felt like Lucky was going to be in loving hands while we were away. Tara send us several pictures to keep us posted on how Lucky was settling in which was wonderful as we were missing him very much. We wouldn't hesitate to have Lucky stay with her again.
My husband and I cannot say enough great things about Tara and the care that she and her family provided for our Boston Terrier Spartacus! Before discovering and meeting with Tara, I was really anxious about where I would have Spartacus stay for the three weeks that my husband and I were going to be away. I could not have imagined a better place for Spartacus to stay than in Tara's home. He had so much play time while he was there - when he has stayed in kennels during my previous trips, I had to pay an extra $10-15 for him to have half an hour of playtime. Tara was great about sending me updates and pictures. She even sent me a video of Spartacus playing fetch with a soccer ball with her husband (by the way, I did not know how well Sparty could handle a soccer ball before seeing this video :). They took him on what I am calling "field trips" to the lake and to parks. Spartacus truly had a dog vacay with Tara and her family. Tara is friendly, caring, and great with communication. I highly recommend her and her family if you need someone to care for your dog. I will definitely be contacting her again the next time I have to be away!
Tara and her family took care of Langdon for 17 nights while my fiance and I were away. Langdon is a sweet dog but only 2 years old and weighs about 80lbs. Needless to say I was worried leaving him for that long but Tara was great! She sent us pictures while we were gone and she even followed up to see how he was doing when we got back. I was so lucky to find a family to take care of him while we were away.
Tara and her family kept our dachshund , Charlie, for 9 days while we were out of the country. I am so very happy with the care they provided. Charlie was very well cared for and given a lot of love. He even slept with them!

I highly recommend Taramfor your pet. She even sent me pictures every day showing me how Charlie was doing.

Just wonderful.
Great Experience. Today was a "get acquainted" with my doxie, Charlie, in preparation for a longer stay later in the month.

Very nice family in a lovely and safe home with a big (fenced) back yard. The entire family embraced my little guy and he was obviously very happy when I picked him up. In fact, when I got there he went to Tara instead of coming to me.. Obviously happy.

I give 5 stars to Tara and her family and am so happy that this super nice family will be caring for Charlie when I go on vacation.
I cannot say enough great things about Tara and her family! I am new to town and had an urgent need to get back home - I had nowhere to turn!

Tara responded very promptly to my request and took the best possible care of my Keisha (5 year old pug). I received picture texts and updates on how the vacay was going and I felt SO very relieved knowing that she was in a caring, loving home! I am now actually looking forward to travelling again :)
Tara was great. She sent us daily picture updates and took great care of Charlie while we were gone.

I had actually never had Charlie stay anywhere but with a family member, so this was a new process for me. Tara met with me in advance and showed me her home and fenced in yard. I felt comfortable right away knowing that he would be spending his weekend there.

Thanks Tara for taking such good care of Charlie!
Tara and her entire family were absolutely fantastic! It was the first time our pup spent that much time away from us but we rested easy seeing photo updates texted to us.
I could easily tell Loki had a lot of fun, was very well cared for and felt right at home with them. I would highly recommend Tara!
We could not have been happier. Scout had a wonderful vacation. I think she misses Tara and her family. Tara was super easy to comminicate with. She sent us daily texts updates.
