Tara is fantastic! Loki & Harley had a wonderful time! :) I was especially thankful for all of the updates, including many photos, which gave me peace of mind knowing they were in great hands while we were away for a few days. I also appreciated the meet & greet that she initially set up with us as well as her being able to accommodate an early drop off time so we could make our flight ...

Our dog Maggie had an amazing time with Tara and coordinating with her was a breeze. She set up a very nice meet and greet. Drop off and pick up was very easy. Tara was very accommodating. We received multiple photos and text updates throughout Maggie's stay. And, you can just tell Tara is a dog lover! We would recommend Tara to anyone!

Tara was awesome with our boys! Her schedule was great for our drop off and pick up and the dogs got along with her two girls very well! She went out of her way to spoil them which I’m sure made them more comfortable for the first time over there. I would recommend her highly!!

When Tara watches your pet

I can walk around your neighborhood, visit local parks take walks around my safe neighborhood in South Tempe or I can also take trips to the dog park if that is something your dog will enjoy! I love play time and cuddles and am also good with active dogs as I walk several miles a day. I also used to have 70 pound pit bull mix I would walk daily (she lives with my exhusband now) so I can handle a big dog.

I'm happy to bring in mail, newspapers and packages, turn on/off lights, etc. to make your home look lived in.
