About Tamara

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am 46 years old and have owned dogs my entire life, My husband, son, and I are deeply passionate about dog rescue and two of our three fur babies are rescues. We have been involved in the dog rescue world for about five years now. Presently, we do volunteer fostering with a local rescue, We live a pretty quiet life so we devote most of our time to our dogs and the dogs we foster, When we lived in Texas, we enjoyed taking our dogs to the lake on the weekends. Though we haven't found a good swimming hole here in South Carolina for them yet, we do enjoy getting them outside for some exercise.

We are happily owned by three dogs of our own, a Shih Tzu named Harley, a Yorkie named Brady, and a Bully named Bella, Please don't let the Bully breed scare you off, She is the biggest sweetheart you could ever meet and has never met a dog she didn't want to be best buds with.

Our dogs live a pretty pampered life, They are free to roam the house and sleep wherever they want, which is usually in bed with us. They have their own privacy fenced area of the yard to burn some energy or take care of business. They are crated only when we need to be out of the house. They are all up-to-date on their shots and we would expect that any pup we sit for would also be current on vaccines,

We love to sit for any and all breeds of dog, but do ask them any dog who stays with us be social and accepting of other dogs just like ours are! We do understand that at times, even the friendliest dogs just won't get along for whatever reason. We are fully equipped with baby gates, and plenty of rooms in the event that dogs need to be kept separated. For the sake of our pets' safety and your pet's safety, we can not take dogs known to be aggressive.

All dogs in our home are kept inside with air conditioning in warm weather and are taken out only to do their business and some brief play time. In nicer, more comfortable weather, our guests are brought outside a couple times a day for a couple hours at a time to burn energy. Nicer weather also means nice leisurely walks around the neighborhood

Awesome! I love receiving pictures of my pup throughout the day. He got tons of exercise, and came home tired (which is a miracle).

Thank you for taking such good care of my pups and making sure they had plenty of outside play time!

Will definitely be booking again soon!
Tamara was great! She was able to accommodate me for a last-minute work trip. She is super friendly and great with the dogs. My fur baby was right at home and I enjoyed getting the photo updates throughout the day. I would definitely recommend Tamara and will use her again if needed!
Tamara is wonderful and very easy to work with. Ajax just has tons of fun while staying with her. Tamara sends pictures and videos all the time to keep you up to date.
Thank you Tamara for watching my Gillis during our vacation, you are the best! You were so nice to my dog and even had given him a bath before I picked him up.
Zuzu loved her stay with Tamara and I loved getting daily pictures of my pup playing! I think she slept for an entire 24 hours after her vacation with Tamara!
Tamara & her husband were great. She stayed in contact with me and sent picture updates during Bentley's stay. My pup had a great time & I was able to attend an event with no worries. He was very well cared for.
Very nice faciities for the dogs. The daily pictures were reassuring that our dogs were doing well and that she cared about them. Our doxies came home happy and well cared for. Will definitely use her again. Loved the in home environment! Plus she laundered their blankets.
Tamara was awesome, got lots of pictures, and updates. She love pets and you can tell. She and her husband gave our dogs the love and care they received at home.
What a wonderful experience!! Our 9 year old German shepherd (Maverick) didn't want to leave :). We took an eight day trip across country to attend grand daughter's wedding and we got pictures and videos daily. Maverick was brushed daily and given medication when anxiety arose due to storms. I would recommend Tamara to anyone. It's like sending your furbaby to a retreat!
Tamara did a wonderful job of keeping me informed of my dogs' daily activities. They really enjoyed themselves. I swear my littlest baby ask me when he could go back...
Tamara was a great caretaker! My shy pups warmed up to her and felt at home (: she kept in touch with me while I was away, and I'm glad to have found a safe place for my dogs to stay while I'm away.
Tamara did great with our bulldog. She sent us pictures everyday and kept us updated on how he was doing. We will definitely use her for our next vacation.
Tamara was awesome during our meet-n-greet and when both of my dogs stayed with her (twice!). One of my pups has intestinal issues (he has IBS) and the other eats everything in sight as long as it's small enough to fit in her mouth. They both have tons of energy, but came back tired and very happy. Normally my dogs have severe separation anxiety but every time we go to Tamara's they just out of the car and run right to her. Her dogs are awesome, so is her family. She's very attentive to both of my animals and she sent a ton of pictures and let me know/see what they were doing. I highly recommend her, and she is our ho-to dog sitter!
Tammy was wonderful with my babies. She was able to assess their personalities very quickly which made it easier for her to understand and meet their needs. Tammy and her family showed my babies lots of love and allowed them to take over her home as if they were back in their own home.

Great experience with lots of updates. plan to use her exclusively for my babies. She will become Aunt Tammy. Love her and her family.
Tamara and her family were great to my dog! Tamara sent pictures of him daily and treated him like he was her own. He came back home after a week happy, healthy, and dog tired from playing all week.
Tamara is so great! We loved the updates she sent us and she was incredibly flexible. We'll definitely be returning!
Kept us updated with pictures. Takes the dogs for walks. Will definitely book again next time I need a dog sitter.
Tamara provided a wonderful place for our two dogs while we were out of town. She sent us daily updates which included pictures of Gunnison and Wrigley and was very prompt returning messages. Tamara was very understanding and helpful when it came to using our kennels from home (we are in the process of moving to Europe) and we really appreciated her working with us and tending to Gunnison's anxiety (which included extra steps like taking his bed out if Tamara stepped out of the house) and Wrigley's timidness. Thank you Tamara!
Anna had an awesome time. Tamara went above and beyond the call to make my dog feel loved and happy. We were going through a difficult move out of town and she removed one worry.
Tamara and her family welcomed both our furry family members into their home with open arms. She updated us with pictures during their stay, which made me feel at ease. I will definitely use Tamara again when we visit Georgia next year.
