About Tara

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a US Army veteran and a dog care specialist. As a veteran I know how hard it is to leave your dog everyday or even for a year! It is heartbreaking and hard to know if you are making the right choice when you leave your beloved pet for someone to look after them. I can assure you if you leave your pup with me they will not only be well cared for but very happy! My house is big and the best feature is the back yard. Your dog will have access to the house and the yard all day and night. I go on very long walks twice a day with visits to the dog park! Plenty of exercise and plenty of love is what your dog will experience here in Just like home care. Meet and Greet is required, so you can see what your pet will experience for yourself and to ensure it is a good fit for all. Pets must be house trained and spayed or neutered. When your away you will get daily updates from me about your pup including pics with many smiles!
Give me a try you won't regret it!

I leave my dog "Zoey" with Tara and I never have to worry. I know that she will be well fed and taken for walks. I believe based on my dog's behavior that she feels safe with Tara. Zoey always has fresh water, shade and plenty of room to run and play in a very safe environment. My dog is very special to me and I would not leave her with someone that I didn't trust.

This was our first time using this website and our experience has been great from beginning to end. Tara was a perfect choice for our dog. She has a great location for the dogs to run and play. She treated our dog like one of her own pets. We would definitely recommend her to others and will be requesting her services for all our future dog sitting needs.
Tara took wonderful care of our two dogs during a short vacation. With loving attention, our dogs became part of Tara's family during their visit. Big yard and comfortable home to accommodate four-legged boarders. Highly recommend Tara!!!!
So thrilled we found the Dogvacay website and that we found Tara! We were concerned about going on vacation because last time we left Sophie she was boarded in a camp setting, when we came home she was not well and she ended up in doggie ER. Sophie is our family pet and she is adored by all of us. Tara was wonderful, we did a meet and greet to make sure Sophie got along well with her two dogs. All went well and we felt good about leaving her in her care. Tara sent us updates and even used facetime one evening. When we picked her up she was happy and healthy. She learned to play with Tara's two dogs. It was a great experience for both us and Sophie. We would definitely recommend Tara and wouldn't hesitate to use her on our next vacation!
Tara and family were fantastic! They made our 20 month old, male, poodle mix, Snicker, feel at home. Tara was kind, professional, and most importantly patient. She made Snicker feel comfortable and made sure he was well taken care of. Tara sent me pics of Snicker's well being throughout our Big Bear getaway.

Thank you Tara and family, and we will see you soon.
Our dog Layla loved staying with Tara! I have already told all of our friends she is the person you want watching your dog when you are away. She sent me photos and videos everyday and really treated her like her own. Her house is clean and she has an amazing outdoor area for the dogs to play. Could not be happier and will be returning!
Tara was an awesome host! She was quick in responding to set up a meet-and-greet, she provided daily updates on how my dog, Callie, was doing (via video and pics), and even gave Callie a toy for Christmas! She has a great house for dogs, including a really nice backyard for them to play! Tara, thanks for taking such good care of Callie, and making her feel right at home!
We could tell Kayla really enjoyed her stay with Tara. Kayla is a sweetheart and we're glad she got along with Tara and her dogs. We received pictures, videos and timely updates, Tara was great!

We won't hesitate to leave Kayla with Tara for any future vacays.
Tara did a great job taking care of our pup, Gwen. She kept us posted on her needs and sent pics for our review . Gwen was very happy when we picked her up and was tired from all the fun playing with her pups. We look forward to using her services again. Thanks Tara.
Lakota is a fairly timid dog, friendly with people, but easily startled. When we went for a "meet and greet," after a few minutes he was playing with Tara's two dogs. When he dropped him off for his stay, he joined two other guests, but appeared to meet them easily. Tara sent several photos of him during his time with her, took him on a 3 1/2 mile walk, and he seemed to be fine. When we picked him up, he was happy to see us (as only Goldens can be), but willingly went back into the house when we went to get his possessions. He came home and slept much of the day as we figure he was exhausted from the constant dog-to-dog interactions and playtime with people.
