About Tarren

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I work from home, so I am able to be home with the dogs all day. Occasionally I have to go in qto the office, but my boyfriend is always at home to stay with them. I have experience caring for dogs for 15 years, including an elderly Boston Terrier, which lived to be 16. I currently have a dog who is a German Shepherd mix, who I rescued. He is great with other dogs, and loves to play.

I will allow pets to sleep where they wish, and roam as they please, while keeping an eye on them to make sure they don't cause any trouble. Plus, I will give them lots of loving, attention, and treats! They will be treated as if they were my own and nothing less, including getting to sleep in the bed! (if you allow your pup to of course)

I will follow your requested schedule for walking and feeding. I provide a minimum of 4 walks a day, but that can definitely be adjusted to your preferences/needs. My dog is 110 pounds and is always at my home, however he gets along with dogs of all sizes and ages. He is a gentle giant, don't let his size distract you from the big baby that he really is! He was very caring and gentle with my 16 year old Boston Terrier, and every single dog that he's came into contact with. He would love to have friends stay over, to keep him company and play with!

There are two different dog parks on my block, that I will take the dogs to so they can run and play! Both are fenced in. One is gravel, and the other is grass. All the dogs I take there have plenty of fun, and love to run around and play.

If you have any specific questions or concerns, please contact me. I'm willing to handle all types of dogs, no matter breed or personality. I assure you, your child will be in great hands and staying in a loving, welcoming home!

**Please keep in mind that when boarding overnight, the rate charged is for a 24 hour or less period. I am very flexible with pick up and drop off times, but please notify me in advance of your planned times. I've had instances where a dog has been dropped off at 6 am, and picked up a few days later at 11pm. This ends up being a 41 hour stay vs 24 hrs. This also makes it difficult for others to use my services, because I only have a maximum of 3 dogs with me at a time, which doesn't allow others to book overnight. I'm sure I will be able to accommodate your schedule, please just try to let me know the best you can in advance, and we will work something out! Thank you!**

Tarren took great care of my dog Fritz, she was very flexible with timing and was in touch the whole time with text and photo updates. He came home so tired and happy from playing with his new buddy Duke. Thanks Tarren!
Tarren was fantastic! I was really nervous as I have two dogs, both recently rescued and suffering from separation anxiety, and one is still a puppy. Not only was Tarren considerate in helping load and unload the car and the pups, she made sure the dogs weren't left alone too frequently, and took them on many trips (along with her own dog) to the dog parks. I got to enjoy my vacation knowing they were happy and well taken care of. Every day I got pictures and could see the big smiles on their faces! When I picked them up at the end of their stay, they were both happily tired from all the fun they had!
It was such a relief to find someone like Tarren to watch our dog Apollo. We just moved to Chicago and haven't established a network of people we trust. Tarren took all of the anxiety out of the process for us by providing daily updates and photos. Apolllo was exhausted when he returned home which is a great - he got lots of exercise and playtime with Duke! We will definitely be asking Tarren to watch Apollo again in the near future.
Tarren was great! She was always quick to respond to texts and was very accommodating. We received picture updates of our dog every day. She cared for our dog as much as we did! We will definitely love to have Blake stay with her again.
I will definitely be bringing my dog back to Tarren. She was very responsive, sent photos of the pet, and was flexible with the odd hours I needed for pick-up and drop-off. Thank you, Tarren!
Tarren was so great with my pup! She was very quick to respond, and was incredibly accommodating. She took great care of my dog and was awesome about sending pictures during the stay. My dog clearly had an awesome time while staying there, and we will definitely be booking with Tarren again!
Tarren took great care of Penrod, who had a blast playing with other dogs throughout his stay. Centrally located, to boot.
I was hesitant to leave my pup with anyone for the entire week but Tarren made sure to keep me updated with my dog Noah's pictures as well as what they were up to on a daily basis. She is very responsive and is really good at what she does. I will definitely leave my pup with her next time i have to be away. I highly recommend her!
Tarren responded to the booking request within minutes and provided updates whenever they were requested all weekend. My dog had a blast and got along with her dog very well. I will definitely be in contact with Tarren in the future if I ever need someone to watch my dog again.
Tarren was awesome! Gladly took my pooch in last minute and was flexible with my schedule. She has other dogs there which was great for my dog because he likes to play. And he even got to go to the dog park. When I picked him up he went right to sleep so i knew he had fun and was well taken care of. 5 star rating for sure!
