Tara and Rover were absolutely, unbelievably, awesome. We appreciate Tara's gentleness and caring for our sweet, mistreated, malnourished and stressed out rescue dog that we needed out of his adoptive home, which horribly we awry. She got him to a Veterinary Hospital ASAP to ensure his health and wellbeing.
I would highly recommend her.

My sweet pup Ranger spent 8+ hours with Tara, playing fetch and taking nice comfortable naps. She sent me regular updates with pictures that made me feel he was happy and safe. I would recommend Tara to anyone in the Spokane area!

My dog Bandit came home happy and tired! He got two walks during his 24-hour stay as well as lots of playtime with Tara's three dogs. He is a shy guy so Tara was very careful to introduce her dogs gradually and they all got along great! I would absolutely recommend Tara to watch your pet.

Companionship, fun: Darling Dogcare

I have cared for dogs professionally since 2005. I will provide a happy day of enriching activities with humans and dog friends either relaxing inside, or enjoying the great outdoors. I plan my days with flexibility to accommodate and entertain dogs with different temperaments, energy levels, and physical needs. Boredom and loneliness can lead to unwanted behaviors, and affect a dog’s well being. I hope that by giving dogs an enriching day of fun ...

What Tara would like to know about your dog

Please let me know if your dog is potty trained - or if they have occasional accidents.
I want to know that your dog is up to date on bordetella and rabies vaccines.
Please let me know about your dog's prey drive level (for cats, squirrels, etc.) Are they usually comfortable around new dogs and people - or if we should take it extra slow with these experiences? Finally, what is their favorite type of fun?

When Tara watches your pet

If it is nice outside, we will have adventures that are appropriate for the dogs that I'm caring for. This may include enjoying nature, or seeing the sights in town. During inclement weather, we will spend most of the day indoors. Dogs can bring their beds, sweaters or toys that will make them feel more at home. I understand that it may take some time before a new dog is comfortable with me. I will take it slow and let your dog tell me what is okay. I manage my day with flexibility in order to accommodate and entertain dogs with different temperaments, energy levels, and physical needs.
