Tara was wonderful! She and her family were a perfect fit for my high energy puppy. She was very understanding when Poppy had accidents in the house and charged a very reasonable price. She even agreed to sit Poppy longer than I originally had said. Thank you Tara!

Our Shih-Poo had a great stay with Tara and her family. She texted a couple pictures to us, including one with Oscar and another dog sleeping on her bed. Not sure how she and her husband got any sleep, but they were awfully sweet with him! Would definitely contact Tara again if we're in the area.

UVA Grad, clean home, LOVE animals!

I am a UVA graduate, a Mother of two, who are also animal lovers like me, own a clean home in downtown Charlottesville in a lovely neighborhood, non-smoker, and have fostered many fur-babies for the SPCA over the years. Our family adores caring for animals and doing anything we can to keep them as happy and comfortable as possible. Whether it's cooking food for the fur babies, wiping or washing them to keep them fresh ...

What Tara would like to know about your dog

Please bring as many comforts of home for your fur-baby, including food and water bowls, beds and sleep-time things, blankets, stuffed toys, chew toys, leash, harness, sweaters (in cold weather) medications, etc.
