About Tara

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
hello!

I offer in-home, overnight care for all the pets in your family, and for any length of time. I occasionally offer dog walking and check-up visits for cats and dogs.

My rate for February and March is $45 per day or night, which is all-inclusive for any number of pets.
I prefer to adjust my schedule to your dog's regular daily routine, and do not mind dogs with "special requests" or extra needs. For younger pups, our day often includes additional fun outings like the beach and the dog park.

About how I fit into your home:

I love working from home, especially with the company of animals. I spend most of my day designing, doing yoga, or researching on my computer. I am very mobile and flexible, so I can stay at your home and keep your dog company! I love to send constant photo updates so you know your dog is in good hands while you're on vacation.

I always meet your family and get to know your dog and their routine before we make or confirm the booking officially. It's important for your dog to know you I'm a friend and I'll be keeping them company.

I will arrive to your house either before or just after you leave for your vacation. I settle in to whichever room you'd prefer me to sleep in. I set up my laptop, usually at the kitchen table. I bring my own food to eat, and in general, I tread lightly. When I leave, your house looks better than how I found it. Best of all, when you return home, your dog will have made another best friend. :)

About myself:

I grew up in Tierrasanta and went to college at Chico State where I studied Interior Design, Italian language, and Business. I'm most passionate about design and mindful living. I enjoy caring for plants and pets, dancing to electronic music, building computers, making art, doing yoga, and studying psychology.

If you're interested, please visit my graphic design website by googling "design6sides".

Thanks for reading my profile and I hope you and your dog have a wonderful day!

We are very excited we found Tara!
Tara was amazing! Took incredible care of my little poodle mix including lots of walks and sent beautiful photos.
Tara stayed with our 2 dogs and cat at our home over the Christmas period. She sent us pictures and updates daily and the house was immaculate when we returned. Very responsible and thankful that we found her. Our animals were very happy and we were too!
