About Tara

Current clients only.

Let K-9 Creek be your best friend's "Home away from Home".

Want to go away for the weekend? Having guests come over for a party, holiday or who just aren't fans of dogs? Have a last minute business trip out of town? I can take care of your fur-kid when you are not able to. Need to board a flight? No fears!! I'm only 10 minutes from LVIA.

Whether it's for an over-night, an entire weekend or just for the day; Let me take over where you leave off. They will have a blast running around the yard, splashing in the creek o
pup-pool. There will be walks on local rail trails, trips to parks to play ball and the river to swim. After a snack they'll be given the chance to take a few Zzzs on a comfy bed or sofa. Then right back to romping and maybe even a game of tug. Don't forget to book a bath if you want your pet smelling fresh when they come home.

I offer a multi-dog discount, willing to accommodate special needs & senior fur-family members as well as administer any meds necessary. I previously worked PT at a Premiere Doggy Day Care and had Red Cross Pet First Aid certification. Current vaccination records including Bordatella are required and it is strongly recommend that they have a collar with clear tags in the event there is an escape. While I do have listed that I take puppies I do not accept pups under a year due to potty training issues.

I have grown up with many dogs through out my life and treat all my pets as if they are a family member. That is how I will treat your fur-family member.

In addition to Bandit we also have two cats,Shadow (11) and Zoe (9). Given the choice they would be the only two in the house but they do not shy away from Bandit and sometimes put him in his place.

Loving and patient with a young dog! Highly recommend.
Tara was excellent as usual. She kept us very updated with videos of our dog during our vacation and responded quickly to our messages.
Tara was amazing with our boys. They both came jobs happy and tuckered out from playing.
Gus and Mya had a great time!!! :)
Tara was amazing, I got all good reports for both of my dogs and both Sophie and Izzy got along with Tara's dog. They had the best time at her house. I would totally use her again without question. She also sent me video and pic updates which made me feel more at ease knowing they were in good hands. Thank you so much Tara!!!! My dogs had the best time with you!!!
Tara took excellent care of Max. Shared pics of Max daily. We will most certainly use her again!
I must say I was VERY happy with the care Tara/Dogvacay gave my puppie. I have a 7month Morkie named Timmy who is very active and who likes a lot of attention. It was hard for me because this was my first time leaving town without Timmy.Tara was understanding and knew how hard it was for me so she sent videos and pictures of Timmy playing in a baby pool, running around with the other dogs and keeped us update on his behavior and other activities. Timmy was very well taken care of and shown alot of love. I would recommend Tara/ Dogvacay to anyone looking for their pet to be cared for and I will also use her services again.
Tara was excellent - she provided several emails and text messages containing photos of Max playing with his buddies. I know Max is in excellent hands with Tara and we will most certainly use her again.
Excellent experience. Tara was great with Max and her home is welcoming to pets - especially the creek that borders the back yard! She took the time to send pics and videos to let us know that Max was doing well under her care. We would most certainly use her again.

We were nervous at first leaving our canine family member with someone we barely knew. We couldn't be happier with how things worked out.

We contacted Tara after a provider, who we had heavily researched, cancelled on us at the last minute. Tara not only welcomed our last minute reservation, but put our mind at ease about the care our dog would receive. Tara asked us about the routines and norms that SKYY was used to and accommodated any requests we made.

EVEN BETTER, we received a daily note summarizing our dog's day. Along with the note we would get pictures and even video! We could see how much fun SKYY was having playing in the creek, going on walks, playing fetch, and batting at a ball in the pool. While we missed our pup dearly, we felt comfortable that she was getting lots of love.

I highly recommend Tara. Your dog will be especially well cared for and you will know it from the updates you receive while away.
