What wonderful people with a genuine love for pups. They updated me while on my trip with photos, took my dogs for frequent walks, welcomed them into their home and really loved on them. They volunteer at the humane society and have a talent for training which I really need help with. Great people, really care about my dogs' safety and happiness. Phenomenal experience, highly recommend.

Tamara loves dogs and understands them. She looked after our willful, spoiled pug Bella when we would go out of town. She was always very professional taking excellent care of Bella and our apartment. Bella was always excited to see her and that made us feel good. Everyday they went on long walks to Coit Tower or around North Beach, avoiding crowds as Bella was not comfortable around strangers. When we
returned home Bella was ...

Fun with Dogs

I am experienced with all breeds of dogs. Starting in my youth we always had a family dog. As a teenager I did some dog care for family friends and through babysitting. In my early 20's I did lots of house sitting for small terrors, large mix breads, and a mini dachshund. Later for two years I had a roommate who rescued English Mastiffs. I would help care for them by walking, feeding, cleaning, and ...

What Tamara would like to know about your dog

I will strive to make your dog safe, comfortable, and confident throughout our visit. I really like dogs that need a little help, dogs that lack confidence, shy, and even boisterous ones, loud talkative, and reactive dogs, too. Please inform me of all your dog’s particular quirks and needs, and your own preferences and expectations.

When Tamara watches your pet

The dogs and I will get up and go for a quick morning potty walk and then have breakfast. After we would take a nice, long walk. When lounging at home they may be on a couch soaking in the sun or playing fetch in the sitting room. I work in the evenings and my boyfriend Kris is home to walk and care for the doggies. He is as much a dog lover as I am and only uses positive reinforcement he will feed dinner and after dinner potty break. When I get home we take another good walk and go to bed. Your dog will be welcome to sleep with us if they and Buddy have good manners otherwise a comfortable soft crate with a fluffy bed will be provided.

Your dog will love my home and neighborhood. It's always a nice day so we spend much of our time outdoors. My apartment is small and so is my fenced in yard which is why we often go for long walks around Lake Merritt. Lake Merritt is only 2 blocks away from my home and there are lots of fun neighborhood sights and smells too. You will love my front room window, it's so big and let's in lots of warm sunshine. Buddy loves to soak it in and share the sun rays.
