About Tara

An experienced pet sitter and all-around animal lover, I live with my husband in South Boston. My flexible schedule and home office allow me to pamper your pet while we keep each other company through most of the day. We are located across the street from Thomas Park, the neighborhood hot spot for dog walkers and pooches of all shapes and sizes. Castle island is another favorite walking destination, about a mile down the beach.

When dog sitting, I like to send lots of photo updates, giving you peace of mind and hopefully bringing a smile to your face knowing your pup is maxing and relaxing while you're away.

I am experienced with caring for large dogs (Great Pyrenese), as well as dominant dogs (Rottweiler, English Mastiff) and Brachycephalic dogs (aka "short nosed" English Bulldog and French Bulldog)- along with high energy, high activity dogs (Wheaton Terrier, Border Collie). Each breed is unique, and each dog has unique preferences and needs. A happy dog means a happy human companion, so I always aim for the right balance of attention/affection and activity to suit the individual dog.

Tara was amazing with our papillion. She was very accommodating with drop off and pick up, and sent us updates and pictures while we were gone. Snoop loved her and her husband, and it was truly a home away from home for him. I would highly recommend her and have already asked her to watch him again!
We were so happy to have found DogVacay, and more specifically Tara, to watch our beloved lab, Cody, while we went on a week long family vacation. Cody can be quite a handful but he is our best friend and to have him being watched by somebody who truly cared for him and his well being was such a huge, guilt-fueled weight lifted off my shoulders. We received multiple updates daily along with pictures and videos... Cody appeared to be having a great time with Tara - walking/jogging, swimming, playing, relaxing... all of the things he enjoys at home. I highly recommend Tara and her services. She is a kind, trustworthy, responsible sitter and i couldn't have asked for anything more. Thanks again Tara!!
Tara was such an awesome host!! I had her meet Bella before my trip just to make sure she was comfortable with a bigger dog. She not only met Bella and I down the park she offered to take Bella on a long walk and bring her back to me. While I was away Tara updated me with extremely cute pics and status updates including long runs. I'm glad I found such a reliable dog sitter and a new friend for Bella. We will def use Tara again in the near future.
