EXCEPTIONAL!! We highly recommend Tara! She is outstanding! She is experienced, responsible, knowledgeable, and very kind and caring. Tara will love your dog unconditionally. What a great experience for us and our dog Kona! Tara and her dogs Raina and Phoebe were the perfect match for all of us. We feel very fortunate to have found her and whenever we need to board Kona, she is the person we will ask.

Tara was perfect for our dog. She did a super job. She was a perfect substitute for us. Tessa missed us but did great with Tara for the week.

Dogs are my best friends! I have been a caretaker for my own dogs for 35 years, including those who are rescue, elderly and special needs. I have been involved in dog rescue for 15 years. I am a dog lover in every sense of the word. I also had a special needs cat for 15 years. I am a responsible professional who loves to dog sit in order to spend time with dogs and ...

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.
