Our puppy, General, had such a good time with Tara! She spent a whole weekend with him. She was very responsive, sent lots of updates and pictures, and took him out for walks. General seemed injured at one point in her stay and she was very quick to check him and take him to the vet. We were very happy with how she handled General. We would recommend her to anyone needing a pet sitter!

Tara was fantastic. I received messages each day to keep me updated on how Zoey was doing and a few pics to let me see what she was up to. At all times, I knew Zoey was in great hands, and I'm really grateful for the level of attention and care Tara provided. (Thanks Tara!)

When Tara watches your pet

Depending on the owners preference and the animal's activity level: I can take your dog on a nice, leisurely neighborhood walk. I can jog with them for higher energy breeds who are already used to running on walks. I love playing fetch, tug of war and “chase me” with your pet. We can also go to a dog park to socialize and play with other dogs.
