About Tara

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
In addition to taking care of your dog while you're away, I will happily take care of your cats and any other critters you might have!

Currently I have 3 cats of my own and love to travel so I understand how important it is to have someone you can trust to watch over your pets.

I currently work as a full-time great ape keeper and have previously worked with animals as large as elephants and as small as a fat-tailed gecko! Prior to being a zookeeper I worked for about 7 years in kennels and veterinary hospitals.

My greatest passion in life is animals and I believe that makes me the perfect person to watch your furry family members while you're out of town or working a particularly long day.

While you're away I can stop by to let your dog out for a potty break or we can go for a nice walk. Having a pet who needs medications won't be a problem as I am quite capable of administering topical, oral, and injectable medications.

There is an additional 10 dollars per day added to the sitting fee for each dog after the first one. There is also an additional 5 dollar fee per day if medications need to be given.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me. I really look forward to hearing from you!

Excellent job from Tara, again. The dogs are always well taken-care-of and everything is, in fact, cleaner than when I left. She is also willing to take care of my Bearded Dragons which is a HUGE relief.

Tara is very solicitous and willing to make sure my dogs are comfortable and safe.

As always, Tara is great!
Tara comes through again! It's such a relief to know I have a pet sitter who will love on and care for my dogs as well as my bearded dragons. She's also very thoughtful, thorough, and observant.
Tara handled our two dogs and four Bearded Dragon like a champ. Everybody was happy and healthy when we got home. Great follow-up and communication!
Tara was amazing as always!
I have had Tara pet sit for me 3 times and she is great. my pets love her and she always gives me a wrap up at the end. She is now my go to person to care for my furry kids!
Tara is awesome! She even brought Baxter treats because he ran out while she wa watching him. I didnt worry once because I knew my dog was in such great hands!
Tara is great! I know she takes great care of my pets since my cat is nice to me when i come home! The house is cared for as described and she provides me a recap of the stay at the end of the session. I have used her twice and will continue to book with her in the future.

Tara was absolutely amazing from the very first contact! I will not hesitate to use Tara in the future!
We LOVE Tara! Our dogs were well cared for, as was our home! She left a page-long letter summarizing their week with her! We will be using her again and again!
