About Tara

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Rest in peace knowing your pets are in loving hands.

About us: My name is Tara and my partner Shane and I have been house & pet sitting the last four years. We both work remotely from our laptops, Allowing us to spend the days with your pet, provide them with plenty of love and attention, and maintain any daily routine your pet may have.

We both enjoy the outdoors, travel, vegan cuisine and pretty much anything that allows us to get involved with animals! We are constantly traveling while caring for pets. We have house & pet sit from Nicaragua to Washington.

A little about our services:

Picture updates - Daily photo updates.

Supervision - We both work remotely, this will allow us to give your dog our undivided attention and spend the day with them.

Dog Park - If you are comfortable with your dog going to the dog park, we are happy to let them burn off some energy.

Walks - Per your instructions.

House Sitting - We are definitely willing to travel further than 25 miles to house sit if you are interested in our services. Please send a message first and we can further discuss.

Medication - If you have a dog that needs medication. There will be an additional charge of $5 per day. We have plenty of experience with oral medication.

Aggressive Dogs - I do Not normally sit aggressive dogs. Since we do travel with our small 9lb dog, I would not want to put him in harms way with a larger aggressive dog. If you have a small dog with aggressive tendencies, shoot me a message first and we can discuss. My little guy does great with smaller aggressive dogs and respects boundaries.

House Sitting Experience - We have house sat from as little as 1 day to 6 weeks. We are open to long term house sitting, and do offer special rates (very low cost to you) for extended stays. The longer the stay, the further we are willing to travel.

*Please keep in mind that we do travel with our small 9lb Chiweenie, Little Bear. He is very well behaved, gets along well with other dogs (not a big fan of puppies) and completely house trained. However...there are times that Shane may house sit in one location and I another. It is not uncommon that Little Bear will remain at the other residence.

Tara was absolutely wonderful! We booked her to stay at our place on short notice for New Years. Our Bailey gets really freaked out by the fireworks, and we wanted her to be comfortable in her own home. Tara was responsive, friendly, and accommodating. She took great care of Bailey and sent lots of photo updates, placing my mind at ease. When we got home, the house was in great shape. I was initially nervous about having a stranger in the house, but Tara was great. We would use her again without hesitation, and have already recommended her to a friend. Thanks, Tara!
We can't say enough good things about Tara and her partner! They were able to accommodate a last-minute request to cover Christmas Eve and Christmas Day when our regular dog sitter had to change plans. She coordinated with our sitter to make sure the handoff was smooth. She sent multiple photo and video updates, and was even able to bring along her own similar-sized dog for some play time that my pup really needed. She is very responsive and clearly takes her duties seriously. Thank you, Tara!
Tara is awesome! We are so happy we found her and feel much better about leaving our dogs and our house knowing that she will be taking care of them. We loved getting the updates. Our dogs usually get upset when we are gone and this time they seemed great when we got home. We highly recommend Tara.
