About Tami

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I love dogs and get along well with all breeds and personalities. I love going for walks. I have a fenced yard and a doggie door for small dogs. My Yorkie, Abby, and I love company. I believe in the philosophy of "exercise, discipline, and affection". Lots of affection! I have several years of experience in taking care of dogs for other people. I've had experience with many different breeds and sizes from a 5 pound Yorkie to a 100 pound Doberman. It is important to me to know the normal routines of my guests and try to keep them as closely as possible so that they feel safe and comfortable. Abby and I go for at least one walk every day. We especially love walking in nearby Woods Park and on the many trails available in Lincoln, and we enjoy having the company of friends on our walks.

We were reluctant to leave our dog, Riley, with anyone, but we had to go out of town and Riley couldn't go, so explored several options. We met with Tami and Abby for an initial introduction, then we left Riley for one night one weekend and two nights the next weekend just to make sure he would do well before we left him for 10 days. Tami sent photos, messages and videos and we were very happy with the care and affection she provided to Riley. Riley will soon be spending another week with Tami and Abby, and it eases our minds to know that he will be safe and receive excellent care while we are gone. My husband and I highly recommend Tami's pet care services.
Tami was awesome and sent great updates about my dog Daisy! She was also very caring and accommodating when Daisy was nervous about being away from home.
Tami was absolutely amazing. We were gone from a Friday to Friday. She sent me pictures of our dog Gus during the week while we were gone on vacation and promptly answered any messages I sent. I knew that he was safe, loved, walked and cared for while we were gone. We will definitely be asking Tami to watch him again the next time we need a sitter!
Tami did a great job. She took my dog on long walks, and sent me pictures daily. My dog suffered from separation anxiety which unfortunately did create some problems for Tami.
Tami did a great job. We needed a place for our dog to stay one night, and Tami was very accommodating.
Tami was a great dog sitter. We received daily photos of our dogs. Both dogs came home happy and relaxed, like we never left them!
Tami did great with our dogs and with communication for us. She would send several pictures per day. Definitely would recommend and use her services again!
Tami was fantastic, and I would go to her again the next time. We had Tami watch our dog during a very busy holiday weekend, and even though she had several dogs, she treated them all like they were the only ones. She was very organized and her home was clean! Kept me updated with pictures throughout the day, and let me know how she thought he was doing. She was very good at letting the dogs introduce themselves to ours, one at a time.
We recently moved to Lincoln and didn't have a regular pet sitter for our dog Lucy. Worried we wouldn't be able to find anyone last minute and over the holiday we stumbled upon Tami's profile. She responded immediately and even came by to meet Lucy that same day. Lucy loved her. Tami visited twice a day, took her for walks and sent us pictures. We knew we had left Lucy in good hands and will definitely use Tami again. Thank you Tami for your flexibility and special attention.
Tami gave the personalized service and home environment we wanted for our dog - personal attention and walks with no extra charges.
Tami was very conscientious about keeping me updated with cute pictures of my doggies, and I never spent a moment worrying about them when i was out of town. She's the kind of person who has an intuitive understanding of what animals are saying without words, and my doggies seemed to feel comfortable and secure in her care. Thanks Tami!
Moose seemed to have a lot of fun and received the attention he seeks while staying with Tami. I received several photos and a video showing him being well adjusted and enjoying life.

I have total confidence in Tami and her care. I informed her that Moose has separation anxiety. By whatever the means, he seemed to adjust quickly and fit in with the other boarders just fine.

Moose will be coming back for another weekend stay in about 3 weeks.
Tami took wonderful care of my dog. He was let out many times during the day and also got to go on many walks. He warmed up to Tami right away and would lay beside her on the couch. She sent many pictures and I could see he was happy at her house. He had a problem with his foot and she soaked it so by the time I arrived he was already on the mend. Tami is a very nice person who loves dogs. I would use Tami's service again and highly recommend her service.
This is the second time we have used Tami and loved it! Our two dogs loved it there and Tami always takes excellent care of the dogs and keeps us updated on what is going on:) We will continue to use Tami when we go in vacations!
Toby was well cared for at Tami's. He was walked, fed and most of all loved. Thank you Tami!!
Tami treats my dog like family. He is happy there and does well. He does not thrive in kennels for stays so I am happy to have this option. He eats well and enjoys being with a few other dogs his size and some his breed instead of a lot of other dogs.
Tami is amazing! This was our second time leaving our dogs with her, and they remembered their last experience. They were actually excited when we got to her doorstep. So much easier to enjoy vacation when you know your dog is having fun, too! She knows dogs and you can tell she genuinely enjoys them.
Tami was great! This was my first time leaving Ellie since she was adopted as a rescue a few months ago. I had never used this service and didn't know what to expect, but Tami was very welcoming and helpful. She let us visit prior to the vacay to help Ellie (and mainly myself) feel comfortable. Tami sent daily pictures and updates of Ellie getting comfortable and making friends with the other dogs at Tami's house. I felt very comfortable with Tami's care and Ellie certainly did to, as she seemed happy to stay and play even as I came to pick her up! :)
Tami was very accommodating. We stopped over before our vacation to make sure our dog felt comfortable. She was easy to communicate with and sent us updates.
Tami was great with our dogs!! They are older, and she was very accommodating about taking one of them for a short walk in the mornings when it was cooler, and she ensured that they both were given their meds every day. They were both very happy when we went to pick them up, so we know they had a good time. We loved that she texted us pictures of the dogs each day with a short message. She got to know the dogs and what they liked. We will board the dogs with her again in the future when we have a need to be gone.
Tami was great! She kept in touch with us while we were gone by sending pictures everyday of Gus out walking with her. We have already booked her again, and it was very easy through the website. She immediately responded and I knew right away that we were all set.
Tami went above and beyond to make our dog (who has a lot of anxiety issues) feel comfortable and at home with her. We took a 9 day vacation, and I was very nervous about leaving our dog for so long. After a couple of days, it became clear that Tami was the perfect choice to care for her. Not only did she make our dog happy, she is the single most important factor in my ability to relax and enjoy my vacation! It's clear that Tami loves dogs, and loves what she does, in addition to being highly skilled and experienced We will never leave her with anyone else.
In our travels, I was amazed at how many people I met who told me they would never take a vacation because they have no one they'd trust with their furry family members! I told them all about our wonderful experience with Tami, and recommended they try Dog Vacay. Tami simply made our vacation wonderful and I can't thank her enough.,.
Tami is awesome. Very good with our dog and flexible about timing of drop off and pickup times. We will definitely have her watch our dog in the future!
We dropped of Jackson, our Miniature Schnauzer, to Tami while we were out of town for a few days. We had visited beforehand, so Jackson was familiar with little Abby, her little Yorkie and they seemed to get along quite well. Tami updated me daily with pictures and texts to assure me Jackson was eating and going for walks in the park. Her home was well cared for and had a small yard for the dogs to play in. I will definitely consider using Tami again.
Tami was awesome with our two dogs while we were gone for a few weeks. She always sent updates with pictures and let us know how they were doing. They went on walks daily and got cared for just like home! They will be back for another vacation soon!
Tami was amazing! My dog is usually wary of strangers, but he loved Tami. She is gentle, and understanding of dogs' needs.

One of my dogs requires medicine 2X a day, and Tami was able to administer with no issues.

I received daily updates (with pictures) from Tami of both dogs. Tami was kind enough to check on my chickens and home after a tornado during my leave, as well.

I highly recommend Tami as a dog sitter, and will certainly be using and recommending her services in the future.
This was our first experience using DogVacay and it was awesome! Tami had Jack and I come over before hand to meet her dog and get a feel for him before his stay. She has a good backyard area for the dogs to run around in and she takes them in multiple walks. Tami was awesome in updating us in what was going on during the day while we were gone. We really loved the experience and were really glad Jack got to hangout with Tami, Abby, and Ace this weekend. Will definitely use her again!
Tami is awesome! The cute stories and pictures she sent during Ace's stay made our trip all the more relaxing. Getting to see how happy Ace was laying on the back of her couch while he was on squirrel duty, and also the pictures of he and Abby taking Tami for walks around the neighborhood almost made us worried he wouldn't want to come home! I wish there were more than 5 stars to give... We would highly recommend Tami's Place!
My dog was very happy with his stay. In previous kennel stays, he was anxious and upset afterwards, but this time he was very calm. I appreciated the pictures showing him involved in various activities. When I went to pick him up he was viewing out the window and defending his territory by barking at passing people. That is a great sign that he felt at home! Tami was great to work with and I will be returning for future visits.
Bailey loved staying at Tami's home and made friends with the other dogs there. She took great care of her and we loved getting the daily pictures of her and her "friends". We also appreciate the couple of times she drove across town to look in on our cat. Francis is little shy but seemed to warm up to Tami. We would highly recommend her to others.
George and Kaylee fell in love with Tami. She not only took very good care of the both of them, but made them think they were still at home. Her pix to us showed them warm and comfortable in very cold weather! We will ask for Tami the next time we need a care taker for our two rascals! Thanks, Tami!!!! This was the first time I didn't feel guilty about taking a vacation and leaving them behind!
Our dogs loved being with Tami and Abby! Our family felt total comfort and relief on our vacation knowing our dogs were in such loving care! We feel blessed to have met Tami through DogVacay. We will use Tami again and would definitely recommend her!!!!!
