About Tara

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there, I am a very responsible 23 year old and a huge dog lover! My yellow lab recently passed away and I am looking for ways to bring dogs back into my life!

I live in an apartment building in downtown Manhattan super close to Battery Park, which is a great place for walks. There's also a dog park down the street! My building is dog-friendly and has an elevator, so stairs are not a problem. I have 2 roommates who will also provide your dog with lots of love.

I work during the week but your dog will have full freedom to roam around the apartment (which we keep very clean) and make themselves comfortable when I am not home. Otherwise, I will be sure to walk, feed, and care for your dog diligently. And of course, on the weekends, your dog will get round the clock attention (I'd love to watch your dog for your weekends away!)

I am also available for dog walking services in the evenings or on the weekends.

Thanks for your consideration!

Tara is a wonderful addition to the DogVacay community. Her home is a great place that any dog will be happy to stay in.

The apartment is near Battery Park, the perfect place for long walks away from city traffic. Tara was a long-time dog owner and had lots of experience caring for pets. I am sure that she will take great care with all of her DogVacay guests! I highly recommend Tara.

Tara was very accommodating with drop off and pick up times for our pooch. Unfortunately, when she delivered him to our house, she informed us that on one of his walks, he lost one of his snow booties and she didn't know where it was lost and didn't go back to look for it. The lack of noticing that he lost his booty made me feel that she wasn't as attentive with Roger on his walk as she should be. With that said, she was pleasant and our dog seemed to be in fine spirits upon return.

Rocky loves staying with Tara while I'm away. Tara is always responsive, flexible and most importantly takes great care of Rocky! Definitely recommend her.
My pup was pretty relaxed when i went to pick her up. That meant she had a great stay with no stresses.

In my interactions with Tara the one thing that always stood out wa thats sh always smied. Exactly the temperament needed not just for the dog but in life in general.

It was a nice experience.
