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.
