Tamara was very nice, flexible and thoughtful. Although perhaps Poundcake was not at his best behavior and we apologize for that. I recommend her. She did a great job and you can tell how much she cares about animals.

Tamara was absolutely wonderful. She stayed in constant contact with us the whole time we were gone. She sent great pics and loved on our fur babies the whole time. She is most dependable and we will be sure to use her again. Thank you Tamara!

Tamera was amazing! We could not have been more happy that we could trust someone so loving with our baby! We got daily updates on Daisy and we were assured that she was doing well with Tamera’s dogs. I loved that Tamera allowed daisy to sleep with her in bed, as I am sure it made daisy feel safe. We will 100% use Tamera again knowing that Daisy was in good hands!

What Tamara would like to know about your dog

Before a stay I would be happy to set up a meet and greet so you and your dog can get to know me a little better. I also take this time to ask you about your canine companion’s personality, schedule or routine, and their likes and dislikes. I also love knowing how they act around other animals and whether or not they have any behavioral tendencies or medical issues.
