Many people are either dog or cat people but Tamara shares the love of all animals equally.

Tamara Bower is very reliable, kind, and honest. I have closely observed her affection and care for both cats and dogs at various ages, and I can highly recommend her as a dog sitter.

Care and Love are what I give!

I have been a dog and cat lover since I was a child. I've had Beagles, Labradors, Australian Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, Dachshunds and experience with other small dogs like Bichon Frises and poodle breeds. I've had calicoes, Siamese, and American mixed breeds like the two polydactyl/Hemingway cats I have now. Several of my cats and dogs were rescued from abandonment and dangerous living situations.

What Tamara would like to know about your dog

Because of my size, I generally stay with large to small dogs, though for simple sitting visits to your home, I will accept larger dogs.

I will benefit from knowing your furry ones' routines, for feeding, walking and playing. What do they do in their free time? What areas belong to them? Do they require any special care or considerations?

Does your pet like to claw or chew? If so, what are their favorite things to use?

At my home, if your pup is a swimmer, we'll hit the (small) pool in the warmer months. If your pet fetches, plays tug-of-war or just wants to snuggle, we specialize in all those things! Cats can enjoy any of the several scratch-and-stretch posts or kitty towers, or just laze on one of the many low windowsills. Of course there's always time to chase a toy mouse or try to catch the bird feathers flicking around from the end of a stick. If pups stay at my home, they can tool around the cozy, quiet neighborhood with me.
