About Tamara

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Absolutely love dogs. I will treat your dog like one of my own. Loved and cared for unconditionally. They will stay in a very nice home with plenty of indoor and outdoor space to explore. I have a 11 year old Lab mix and a 4 year old Shepherd mix that your dog will enjoy playing with. I have a large wooded backyard that is fenced in. I have more than 20 years of experience with dogs and many other animals. I will send you photo and text updates.

All I ask is that your dog is on a monthly flea and heart worm preventative and comes to my home with a recent bath.
If your dog is under 1 year of age they need to be potty trained and be able to sleep through the night.

We've booked our dog with Tamara countless of times. Padfoot always comes home tired out from having played all day. Tamara sends constant updates and I honestly never have to worry about a thing when I'm gone. I can tell she truly loves dogs. She's organized and positive and easy to book, even last minute. I've never had an issue with her. Tamara's is Padfoot's home away from home!
We couldn't be happier with Tamara watching our Dog Reeses! We repeatedly have her watch our dog and it always turns out great. Not only is it easy to work out drop off and pick up times, but she is the only sitter where our dog goes "willingly" to the sitter. All the other times we are pushing him away and trying to sneak out the front door before he tries to come with us.

I highly recommend Tamara!
Tamara has kept my Toby many times over several years. She always provides a great home for Toby when we travel. While on our latest trip Tamara sent us several photos and texts to keep us informed on his stay.. It is such a relief to be able to leave Toby for days at a time and not be worried about him being unhappy. It is obvious Tamara is a very caring person and loves dogs. I am so glad that she is able to keep Toby for us.
Everything was easy to set up and went very smoothly. My dog had no complaints
My dog is so happy staying with Tamara. She treats her like her own.
She was great with our dog. We received picture updates as well as text messages. Our dog came back happy and tired from playing with the other dogs!
Tamara was a blessing to Ruca and my family. We were heading out of town on a short notice, and she made sure to accommodate our pup and provide a memorable experience for everyone. Not only is her home a great space for the dogs to stay and play together, but Tamara is a great host as well. She sent us pictures and videos so that we could keep up with how Ruca was doing. We highly recommend requesting her and her home away from home :)
Tamara was really great! I love that she has a big fenced in yard so my energetic Golden could get his excercise!
Tamara makes booking a snap and communication is fast'n easy before and during my dog's stay.
Tamara is the best! Have left our Sam with several Vacay host as well as family and friends and Tamara is the best. We will always use her in the future.
Great experience once again! Great communication to make booking, drop off and pick up a breeze. My dog Lilly loves taking vacations with Tamara while I take mine :)
Tamara is terrific. When I leave my spoiled little dog, I have not a worry. Tamara is reliable and flexible. I've lost count of the number of times Tamara has cared for Fargo. Whenever I fly out of Atlanta, she has been there for me. And for Fargo.
It was Kali's first vacay. She loved Tamara and seemed to adapt well. Will book again.
Great experience from A-Z! Good communication before and during my dog's stay. Will definitely call on Tamara again in the future.
Tamara was very good w/Callie & sending us pictures & updates almost dailey & that meant a lot to us. We would recommend her & would have her watch Callie again. We love Dogvaca & they are always our first choice to watch our 4 legged girl. Thank you
Tamara was great. My lab Fifa had a great time living with her for 1 month. Thanks!
Tamara took great care of our girl Akira! We received daily updates, pictures and video.
This was an awesome place for our dog! She had a great time and I had no concerns about leaving her with Tamara.
Tamara was great with my lab! Some dog sitters we have had in the past have been intimidated by larger and more energetic dogs, but not Tamara! She also sends great daily pics. I would not hesitate to use her again.
Tamara went above and beyond to take care of our dog. She treated him as her own, and you can't ask for more than that!
Tamara truly loves dogs. Murphy is always happy to see her and the other dogs. When we drop him off he barely notices when we leave which never happened with previous sitters. You can be happy and relaxed on your trip with Tamara in charge.
Tamara was AMAZING!!! Professional... Sent updates every day!! Took really good care of my little Marley. Will definitely use her again!
My Phoebe has a hard time adjusting to new people but did very well with Tamara. Tamara was great sending photos and being honest regarding how Phoebe was adjusting to the other dogs. I will definitely use her services again!
This was our second time using Tamara and we'll back! Great experience.
Tamara kept us updated with pictures and texts of our dogs experiences. When one of our dogs climbed her fence and got out, she told us how she remedied the situation for the future. Great dog sitter!!!!
Tamara did a fabulous job with our two babies. This was the third time we used her dog sitting services.
Tamara is an awesome host! Super attentive to our dogs who run the house with her. I feel totally confident in her dog handling skills and in leaving my dogs with her every time. We keep coming back! That's evidence in and of itself!!!!!
Great experience. Tamara and her husband were very accomodating and kind. They obviously love dogs and took great care of our Mo. Thanks Tamara!
Thank you Tamara for taking such good care of my dogs. Loved getting the picture updates,they always looked like they were having fun. This was the first time I have used dogvacay and will definitely be using you again. So nice to have someone that loves dogs as much as you do to look after my fur babies.
Tamara, always takes very good care of our dogs! I highly recommend her for your dogs, Vacat Stay.
Murphy had a great 3-night stay ,, He was worn out
for 2 days after we picked him up on Sunday.
I can tell that his stays at Tamara's are a real treat
for him. He gets along with the other "Tenants"
very well and I hear that they like him too ...
Lily loves staying with Tamara and her family. They treat her as their own! I know she is well taken care for and loved when she is away from us.
Tamara was awesome! Our greyhound Cometcan sometimes be a little nervous but he fit in very well with Tamara and her dogs. He received plenty of our door time, a comfy bed, and a nice home away from home. Would highly recommend Tamara to anyone!! Will be back again.
Our Buzz stayed with Tamara for a week and I couldn't be happier for the level of service and love Tamara showed for Buzz... I got daily updates and photos of Buzz and Tamara made sure the dogs never ever fought for any thing... Tamara was also very accomodating to my travel schedule.

We do look forward to sending Buzz to.her for our next trip.

Thank you Tamara :) and woof from Buzz!!!
My boys love staying with Tamara! She sends daily updates and they always come home happy and healthy! This was their second stay with her and I anticipate many more. :)
Tamara was just awesome to our high energy Goldendoodle! She was also very sweet about Jovi's 'accidents' saying after all she is just a puppy! We will surely keep Jovi with her during our next Vacay! Thank you. Lata
Lily had a wonderful time with Tamara again!
VEry good place for our spoiled spaniel! Will definitely make future reservations with Tamara.
Tamara is awesome! She took wonderful care of our super energetic 3-month-old Aussie for four nights. It was our first time leaving our puppy and Tamara made us feel very comfortable. She was easy to work with when we had a few schedule changes, too. We will definitely book with Tamara again!
Tamara is the perfect, dedicated dog lover and it shows! We had never left our 6 year old dog for any length of time, and we had nothing to worry about. She has the perfect "dog home" with a great backyard, a very dog friendly environment inside. She sent pics, and notes by text for the 9 days we were gone about how our dog was doing and acting and eating, etc...Our dog has special diet needs and she made sure to separate the food and feed her separately, and when she was not eating, she cooked and supplemented her food with chicken at no extra expense to us.... From the first "meet and greet" to walking her, to giving her car rides with other dogs, to our picking our dog up, Tamara was the perfect "host." We won't consider taking our dog anywhere else but Tamara in the future! Thank you Tamara for your wonderful care and love of dogs and the special care you provided for our Honey Girl. Could not be more pleased and we'll be in touch for future trips and we know Honey Girl will be in good hands..
Tinker Bell always has a great time staying with Tamara (she comes home and sleeps soundly!). Tamara is a complete professional and we know Tinker Bell is safe & treated like one of the family while she is with Tamara.
Tamara was great at the meet and greet. That is why have chosen her to watch our Bentley and would use her again. She was very caring and took such great care of him. She really loves what she does. She is a five star pup sitter.
Tamara helped us out with a play date stay as we had a family brunch and needed our dogs to vacate the premises. They were at her house for a good part of the day, and as usual, she was most accommodating, sending me a quote right away. Ziggy and Gracie always have a great time when they are at her house!
Tamara is a real dog lover. She treated "Duke" like he was her own. We were so pleased we have already made another reservation with her.
My 2 yr old dog always comes back from Tamara's super tired and exhausted from having played all day! Tamara sends pictures and updates while you are away and I've never had to worry about if my dog is getting enough attention. I know she's in good hands!
Lily had the best time with Tamara! Will use her again!
Tamara was great! Maddux loved it stay at her house and she updated with with pictures of him every day!
Tamara was great with both our very large (95 lb) and medium sized rescue dogs. This was our first time using her, and she was extremely flexible with a schedule change that needed to be made at the last minute. Her home and back yard are well equipped to care for a number of dogs at the same time, and my crate-phobic little one particularly liked that she wasn't confined to a box. In fact, she apparently had such a great time playing that she slept for the entire day I brought her home.

We will definitely call Tamara to take care of our dogs again!
Tamara has been great! She has taken our two big dogs on short notice and not phased at all by any dog breed. Very accommodating and has a great place for our dogs to stay with no worries as we know they are in good hands.
Tamara is fantastic! This was a home away from home for my dogs. Tamara is obviously passionate about her love of dogs. Sadie is senior and needs to be close to her person. Tamara cuddled Sadie and gave her the special attention she needed. Tamara's home is immaculate & well maintained. I left for vacation knowing Waffle and Sadie were in a safe, loving, and happy environment. When I arrived to pick them up, they were relaxed and calm. It was truly a vacation for Waffle and Sadie! Will absolutely use Tamara again! Joan B.
This was our 2nd visit to Tamara's house. Our Black Lab senior dog (almost 16 years) is well loved and cared for while staying in her home. We look forward to using her again. Woof-Woof
Tamara: thoughtful, caring, responsive. "I just love dogs," she says.
Tamara was a wonderful sitter for our dogs! She not only took great care of them but she also sends pictures and notes to keep you posted on how they are doing. I will definitely use her again!
As always Tamara is absolutely wonderful. Sadie is well cared for and loved while staying with Tamara. We care for Sadie very much and we're always concerned when leaving her but Tamara leaves us feeling assured and confident. Thanks Tamara, we appreacite you!
Tamara did an excellent job taking care of Toby. It is obvious she genuinely cares for pets. She sent us several photos of Toby at play while we were out of town. He was happy and content. He enjoyed being able to play with other dogs both inside and outside. It is such a relief to know that Toby is happy and well supervised when we are traveling.
Tamara was very professional with her handling of George while I was away for New Years. I advised her George was afraid of fireworks and she took extra special care of him. She sent me pictures and updates which made me feel a lot better about leaving him with her.

I will use Tamara's services again in the future!
This is my 3rd time to book with Tamara and she has been wonderful every time. She sends me pictures of Percy and I really enjoy my vacation knowing that he is so well taken care of.
Tamara is simply outstanding. She is a dog lover and has the passion for dogs. My dog 'Lukcy' was wonderful during her stay with her and she got along well with Browne and the other dogs.
Tamara and family were fabulous. We have 2 large dogs. They were willing and able to take care of them for two weeks. She was very accommodating and established pick up and drop off times that were convenient for us. Our dogs are used to going to the park every day. Tamara took them for walks, so they got their exercise. We were even sent pictures of them several times during their visit. The pictures showed us that they were comfortable with their new surroundings. We will definitely hire Tamara again.
Excellent care. Tamara is a very kind caregiver and I wouldn't hesitate using her again. She has the perfect setup at her house to care for your pet. Her 2 dogs and one other guest dog got along fine with my senior lab. Thank you Tamara!!!
Tamara was fantastic. She provided timely communication during my dog's stay. I could tell she was able to provide an excellent environment for the dogs in her care. I will definitely use her again, and I highly recommend her!
Tamara was so awesome! Quick to respond and our pup had a blast!
Tamara was great. This is the second time I've used her and I have been very pleased both times. She sent me pictures of Percy and he seemed very happy! She is very accommodating with any request.
Tamara is terrific; Our Sadie is a happy puppy staying with her. We will use Tamara over and over again.
I was very happy with the service Tamara provided, my 11 year old pup was a happy camper! He got his walks, play with other pups and enjoy family time. I will drive again all the way from Johns Creek to use her services!
Tamara is terrific!
I had a wonderful experience with Tamara. First off she was very quick at responding to me. This was my first time leaving my dog with anyone and I was a bit nervous but after I met with Tamara I felt very comfortable and knew he would be in good hands. She always kept me posted on how everything was going and sent pictures too! I would definitely recommend Tamara and will be using her again!
We had just come off a bad experience with one of the big boarding kennels and Tamara really understood our concerns. She went out of her way to make our furry friend particularly comfortable... even sprinkling a little chicken in with her food to ensure she ate while we were away. I really appreciate all that Tamara did for our girl, and I would have no hesitancy to use her again... in fact, we just booked a second visit!
I use Tamara all the time and she is always so great!! I fully trust her with my dog and i never have to worry!
Blitz had a wonderful time staying with Tamara. She sent daily photos of our furry friend while we were on vacation and was very responsive. We would highly recommend her!
I had never boarded my rescue dog with anyone other than a family member in the 2 years we have had him, so I was a little apprehensive. I shouldn't have been concerned, though, because Sammy seemed to have had a great time with Tamara. He was a happy dog when I picked him up and in perfect shape -- I think he even smelled better than when I dropped him off! Tamara was very accomodating in the pick up and drop off and my experience with her was excellent.
Tamara was fantastic with our pooch. We enjoyed the picture updates and her kindness to her dogs and ours. We'll definitely use her in the future.
Both of my dogs enjoyed their stay with Tamara. I can tell bc they've slept 12 hours straight from the moment they got in the car. She sent me pictures and updates every day.
She was extremely accomodating with my schedule (I had an early departure flight and a late arrival).
Would book with her again.
Charlie and I couldn't be happier with our experience! From the moment we met Tamara we knew it was a fit. She sent updates and pictures all week. I will definitely call her again!
Cooper loved staying with Tamara! She was so sweet and friendly. I will definitely be using her again!
Our dogs are very, very active and playful and I'm always worried they will be too much for some sitters, but Tamara assured me they were in good hands and she was right! I felt very comfortable leaving our large breed dogs with her and knew they would be well taken care of. Tamara was very flexible and accommodating during the holiday weekend which was also a huge plus. I plan on using Tamara again for our future trips.
Indie had a great time with Tamara and her 2 dogs, especially Brownie who is also a pup. They played together "like brothers" and we received text & e-mail updates including pictures on a regular basis. Highly recommend her.
Tamara is extremely positive, pet loving and energetic person, who took care of my dog for a week. He obviously felt like at home - I can say that from his behavior after I picked him up: he was relaxed and happy, not stressed up as it has happened with other places in the past. Tamara takes only one dog at a time; she herself has two very friendly doggies to keep company and play with the visiting pet. I will definitely ask Tamara to look after my dog again when I travel and would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a loving temporary home for their dogs.
Tamara was an excellent host for my bundle of joy and trouble, a 4-month-old golden/black lab retriever mix. She welcomed Deacon and treated him kindly as if he were her own, even giving him freshly baked chicken and rice to soothe his bout with diarrhea and accommodating his slow graduation to housebroken status. Deacon became a regular member of Tamara's home for eight days and nights, enjoying lots and lots of play time with Brownie and Maya, the resident sweetheart dogs. Tamara keeps a neat and loving home, and I have every intention of calling on Tamara again for boarding and also for occasional puppy day camp. Tamara has my heartiest recommendation!
***Great Host***
Tamara is fast with communication and sent me an adorable picture of my puppy playing with hers just an hour into dropping her there.
She has a puppy also, so Roxy and Brownie were like perfect best buddies playing together.
They had the run of her lovely garden, a cooling garage and some indoor in the house.
She is very flexible with meeting times, really listened to how we treat Roxy and made us feel comfortable leaving her there.
So much so that we plan to book another play vacay for Roxy for 2 weeks when we go on our summer vacation.
Tamara also volunteers and shelters, a genuine animal lover, and lives an area that dogs love.
