About Taimi

22 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Look no further for the perfect sitter to watch your fur baby. I offer Overnight Boarding and Doggy Day Care in my home. You will have peace of mind when your pup is in my care. I am experienced and professional in what I do and I have been doing this for many years. Don’t leave your baby in a kennel or with a stranger. Consider this their home-away-from-home. The doggies I watch always get excited when they know they are coming to visit Taimi’s house. They become family to us as well as their owners. I love what I do and the dogs love me, too! This is not a Boarding Facility, this is a “Home” where your pup will receive the same love and attention that they are used to. The dogs are allowed to roam free in the house and there is a large fenced yard to play in and explore. Rest assured your dog will get plenty of attention while staying here. Fun, quality care, and love will be abundant for your pooch. I do have requirements that must be met prior to booking so please read over them to make sure your pet will be a good fit with my happy and friendly pack. Read my amazing reviews and you will find out why the pups and their owners love me so much.


YOUR PET WILL BE ACCOMPANIED BY OTHER FRIENDLY DOG GUESTS: I like to maintain a safe environment for all my doggy guests, so if your pet is not used to being around other dogs and has an aggressive temperament towards them, then this is not a suitable environment. If you are unsure and feel your baby can have fun with other four-legged guests, a Meet & Greet is a great way to find out prior to booking. I will consider most breeds as long as they have responsible ownership and training. Pets that can not be left unattended for a short period of time and damage property because of severe anxiety will not be a good fit for this type of free roaming atmosphere. I will only crate per owners request but for sleeping purposes only or if I leave the home, which is usually less than 1 hour.

PLEASE NOTE: All vaccinations must be up to date including Bordatella. Current Rabies tag should be attached to the collar. Active Flea & Tick prevention is mandatory. The home is professionally treated regularly inside and outside for fleas and ticks, however, owners are responsible for making sure their pets are on a treatment that has been proven to work on them. It is always flea season in Florida. Please provide proof of vaccinations and active flea treatment prior to their stay.

Overnight stays are for a max 24 hr. period. A Doggy Daycare stay will
apply for late pick-ups. *Drop-Off/Pick-Up Times MUST BE CONFIRMED with me in advance prior to booking to make sure it does not interfere with the daily routine and schedule I maintain with the dogs. ALWAYS Call or Text when you are on the way here so I may secure the other fur guests properly. And please, DO NOT KNOCK. It causes unnecessary chaos and excessive barking because they all get excited! Thank you for your cooperation in following these instructions.

Monday-Friday: 8:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. (please confirm an approximate pick-up/drop-off time with me in advance)
Saturday-Sunday: 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.
(Hours may vary, exceptions can be made if I can accommodate)

DOGGY DAY CARE HOURS: Monday-Friday Drop-Off/Pick-Up between the hours of 7:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. (Weekend hours may vary, confirm with me in advance)

Holiday Rate is $30 per night ,
Holiday rates apply to each pet booked over the following dates in 2017:
•Memorial Day: May 27–May 29
•4th of July: July 3–July 4
•Labor Day: September 2–September 4
•Thanksgiving: November 21–November 26
•Christmas and New Years: December 19–January 1

Rates may vary based on size, age, and needs. I will provide a Custom Quote if necessary.

Tami was wonderful to our pups! They had a large fenced in yard to run around in and other small dogs to play with! They were happy and well cared for! I highly recommend Tami and her family!
So accommodating and Baxter seemed to have a great time with the other guests! Would definitely use Taimi again!
Taimi along with her husband and wonderful family were very loving and caring to our baby Buster. She took him last minute on Xmas weekend and we were very grateful. A beautiful home along with a big enclosed yard which Buster loved. I will definitely use Taimi again . Very Satisfied
Loved Taimi and my little man seemed to love her too!

Taimi is very very good with dogs. She handles different breeds very well and know how to keep groups under control. I would definitely bring my Boxer back for doggy day care!!
Great experience Taimi is a very pleasant person, her home was very clean with a large fenced in backyard. Our dog Bear seemed to love it and we will use her again in the future.
Taimi did a wonderful job taking care of my 2 dogs! The love Taimi showed to my pets and the pictures Taimi sent us gave us comfort that they were being well cared for! One of my dogs is blind so Taimi had to give special attention to Macey!
I Highly recommend Taimi!
Cocoa had a wonderful time again. He loves getting to play with the other dogs and spending time with Taimi and her family. Taimi even gave Cocoa a bath while he was on dogvacay!
Taimi was wonderful - our dog, Cocoa, LOVED his time there. Taimi was always quick to respond to emails and sent photos as well. Thank you!
This was only the 2nd time since we have had our dog that she has ever been left!! I can say without a shadow of a doubt we will be going back to, Taimi. She always responded to my calls/text day or night immediately, with no hesitation of sending us a picture. When Mila got home she played so hard she slept all day! We were very pleased with her and the care that she provided, which made my vacation much more relaxing!! I would highly recommend her. Her house and yard were very well kept, and all of the dogs in her care were very happy. A+
I've boarded my 2.5 year-old Labrador at several different places in the last two years. I'm positive that Taimi's house is Madiba's favorite spot to camp!

Not only does she take very good care of him, I think Taimi genuinely loves my dog. It's no wonder when we get within a couple miles of Taimi's place, he cries with so much excitement he can barely contain himself - it's too cute. Because Madiba is so happy with her, I don't feel guilty about having to leave him behind when I travel.

Most recently, I was across the country when Hurricane Matthew came through Port Saint Lucie... I was crazy worried about the safety of Taimi and Madiba. In the middle of storm preparations, Taimi took the time to reassure me that my dog would be protected like a member of her family. Thankfully, everyone made it through unharmed. I trust Taimi completely and I'm grateful to have found her.
Taimi was absolutely wonderful. She went above and beyond in caring for Charlie before, during and after hurricane Matthew. She made us feel at ease when it was impossible for us to be home prior to the storm. She will be my only pet sitter in the future.
She was awesome. Lizxie seemed very relaxed there. I will use her again for lizzie
After meeting Tami I knew Sierra would be do great. Tami has a huge yard and Sierra seemed very happy in all the photos she sent me.
Our dog, jack had a great time. Tami was wonderful and very quick with communication. Will be using her again for our dog sitting needs.
Very easy to use this service. Clean friendly environment for my dog to visit. I highly recommend
Was a fabulous first experience. My pups came home exhausted from having such a great time with the other dogs. Taimi cared for my dogs the way I would at home and to me, that means everything!
Taimi was amazing with my pup she knew exactly how to introduce him to the other dogs and she kept me updated everyday with photos and videos of my pup. He was truly in great hands and I will definitely be using her as my pups sitter from now on!
My girl was so comfy with Taimi and the pooches she was watching. She felt right at home. I will be using Taimi on a regular basis. She is wonderful.
Taimi R has a big back yard for my beagle to play in! She felt right at home!
Taimi watched my 2 five month old puppies for 7 days. The puppies had a blust! Taimi was very friendly and her home was very clean and organized. This was my first time using Taimi and DogVacay. I will definitely be using Taimi again.
Excellent host. My dog was happy. Taimi was friendly and very nice. I intend to use her again and again. She is good with the dogs and her house is immaculate. Her yard is good and she lets the dogs do as they wish both inside and out. She knows how to introduce a new dog to the others and is just about perfect.
Wonderful experience. Taimi and her family were very friendly. Her home is clean and all the animals seemed happy. Excellent communication and very accommodating. I will definitely be bringing my boy back.
Randy comes back happy and in one piece lol
Best experience ever
We had a great experience with Taimi. She was very nice and very accomidating with our travel plans. She shared pictures of Zeus having fun with his new friends and you could see how much she loves what she does. She even let us add a day with no problems. I highly recommend Taimi to take care of your pets. I know that the next time we go away she will be the first person we will call. Zeus had a great time while he was staying there.Thanks for success a great experience.
Taimi was absolutely wonderful! She is very accommodating and, best of all, clearly loves dogs. Our very active 2 year old catahoula had an absolute blast. We are very grateful to have found such an amazing pet sitter.
We had to make a quick trip out of town and needed a sitter fast. Taimi responded quickly and kept both of our dogs for us. It was the first time we had left them and she made sure we were comfortable with them staying with her. She gave us updates, sent pictures and answered questions when we had them. She also was flexible when our time changed for picking them up. We would recommend Taimi for keeping your dogs!
Her house was so clean, I was very impressed by that. She was so loving and caring. My dog did not even know I had left. Julio will be going back for some day care days. He will also be spending 6 days with Taimi.
I'm so glad I found this app but most of all I'm so happy to have picked Taimi.
Thank you Taimi.
Awesome job! Calla stayed with Tami for 12 days and she came back a happy pup!
I would rate a definite 5 for my dogs Sugar and Scrappy. Taimi is so wonderful with the dogs. I would definitely book with her again.
Thank you Taimi and family!!
Taimi is the super super super wonderful lady ever !!! Jewel, my husband and I love her to bits !! And her husband too!! She is definitely animals lover no question!! My jewel loves the place . I always was in awe everytime she sent me the pics of jewel while I was in Jamaica!

I am looking forward to use her again sooner or later!

She is perfect
I felt very comfortable leaving my dog with Tami. When I picked him up a week later he was happy and healthy. I've already scheduled his next visit!
Lucky had the best time during her stay
with Taimi and her family. She made
some new furry friends too! Taimi has
a friendly, calm and nurturing demeanor
and we felt very at ease leaving Lucky in
her care for five days. She communicated with us while we were away and sent us pictures of our very
content pup. When we went to pick Lucky up, she was happy to see us, but was in no hurry to leave her new found friends. We are definitely booking with Taimi again!!
Taimi was Great! Everything went as smooth as possible, very nice family, and Misty had a great time! Her contact back was quick and her communication was perfect! Definitely would book again, and suggest for anyone! Thank you!
We moved to Florida about 6 months ago and had never used a dog sitter before. Our dog Spanky has separation anxiety so we were pretty particular as far as who we would leave him with. When we read Taimi's profile me and my husband knew she was the one. From our meet and greet, to our dog Spankys first few visits we could tell that Taimi was Pawsome. She is very knowledgeable ,yet warm and friendly. When we dropped off Spanky we felt completely comfortable because we knew he was in good hands. We loved receiving the photo updates showing us Spanky was having a great time. Later, when we returned to pick him up we could tell he had a good time with Taimi (so good in fact he almost didn't want to leave). He was tired when we got home (in a good way) and we cant imagine leaving our Spanky with anyone else.
Taimi took care of my 3 pups. One has congested heart failure and requires medication twice a day and Taimi was there to do this for us. Taimi put my mind at ease knowing that my pups were in great hands. Thank you Taimi.
Taimi was amazing. She responded quickly and was very helpful. She treated Jack as if he was her own. She also gave lots of fun picture updates of Jack playing with other dogs in her care. He had so much fun at his stay. I will defiantly book again!
I have only taken my babies who are 13 & 15 to day care centers so the home environment was new to us. We only moved to this area a month ago so I was nervous introducing them to another change. My little girl is very shy.
Both my babies were so happy here, I was so relieved, I have to go out of State next month and my babies will be happy and well taken care of, what a relief!
Taimi and her husband are amazing. My Labradoodle is usually timid around men but she instantly fell in love with Taimi's husband (and her :) ). Not to mention as soon as we drove up to their house my dog started going nuts like she was excited to be at her friends house. I'm guessing she could just sense the total dog-loving house. I'm so thankful to have a safe, happy and loving place for my baby to go to. Taimi is extremely flexible and attentive to all the dogs she cares for.
Taimi , was great we set up a meet and greet and I made her aware that one of my dogs takes a little time to warm up to new dogs, she made me aware of my dogs during their stay, they seemed very happy when I picked them up, I would definitely bring them to her again the next time we go out of town.
Max enjoyed spending time with Taimi and her family again. He is always very happy to go there and it makes us feel like he is with family.
Max enjoyed his stay with Taimi. It was nice to know that Max was treated like one of their family. It's nice to know that he was in such good hands. Max will be staying with Taimi again soon.
