About Tara

28 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a retired Police Sergeant from MA. I grew up in a large Irish Catholic Family. Our family always had a dog and a cat growing up. As an adult, I have had at least one dog at all times since I got out of the military in my early 20's. My love for animals almost surpasses my love for people:) I treat the dogs in my care like my kids. At the present time, I watch my neighbors 3 dogs and their house when they go away (Yellow Lab, Yorkie, and Yorkiepoo). I also watch another neighbor's pot belly pig and her house when she goes away. I am fortunate enough to have my very next door neighbor on board as my Pet Sitting Partner. His name is Aaron and between the two of us, the pets are not left alone for any extended amount of time over 2-3 hours at a time.

I do allow animals on my furniture and as long as they get along well with my dog they are welcome to sleep with me if that is what they are used to. I am an early riser and the dog will be walked for the first time at approximately 5:00am. The dogs can run around in my backyard, which is fenced in and rather large. I do also take them for walks on a leash as long as they are trained on leash. I will not limit their roaming of the entire house unless the particular dog has an issue with freedom. I do play ball with any dogs that want to:)

I am fostering a cat for a neighbor. This cat thinks he is a dog and loves dogs. My dog grew up with cats and has no issue with them at all. Your dog or cat will get excited when they know they are coming to "Aunt Tara's" for camp:)

Tara did a fabulous job taking care of Duke and making him feel a part of her family! She sent wonderful photos and updates daily. We are happy repeat clients. Duke will be on vacay with Tara again!
We were so comfortable leaving our Sydney with Tara! Perfect set up and Tara was wonderful with our pup! She didn't want to come home! We will be using Tara's services again!!!!
My Charley loved spending time with Tara. Nice large backyard and very comfortable environment. I would highly recommend her and will definitely be visiting her again next time we travel.
