Bill and Tara, where great step parents to both of our dogs and they sent pictures/updates while we were away on our long trip. Though the pups where happy to see us upon our return, there was no doubt in my mind that they were well taken care of at their home. I would not hesitate to book them again!

Bill and Tara watched our golden retriever while we were visiting family from the Bay Area and had an event to attend one evening. They were most accommodating and have a lovely home and fenced in backyard. Wonderful and caring couple. We will contact them again when im Santa Barbara.

Bill and Tara were wonderful caretakers for Karma. She was happy to see me when I returned, but she made sure to run to each of them and say thank you before we left. I would be happy to have Bill and Tara take care of her again.

Home full-time - large fenced yard

My wife and I have fostered many dogs from our local no-kill shelter (DAWG) as well as from someone who specializes in herding dog rescue.

We live near a beach and a park that both allow off-leash dogs (if ...

What Bill & Tara would like to know about your dog

We would like to know about how the dog relates to other dogs and strangers, any special needs or behavior, food preferences/allergies, where it likes to sleep, and what the chances are that it can leap a 4.5 foot high fence (though the vast majority of our fence is 5 feet high.) We have no breed preferences.

When Bill & Tara watches your pet

We might walk to a local dog-friendly coffee shop in the morning and then hike a trail, go for a run or head to the off-leash dog park or beach in the afternoon. If desired we can do this in a group with the socialized dogs of our friends.
