Tara was super nice! She kept us updated on Chloe and Chloe seemed to have a great time. Chloe can be nervous but she looked very relaxed and comfortable in the updates Tara sent us. Thanks for taking such good care of her!

Tara and her family were great! Very flexible with pick up and drop off times and very welcoming toward us and Cody. She provided updates as needed and when requested. Cody seemed to have a great time! We will definitely keep her in mind for future stays!

We dropped off our two dogs for daycare while we visited Monticello. Tara is awesome and her house is very welcoming. Tara was very responsive in answering questions when we made the arrangements and she sent updates throughout the day while she was watching the dogs. They dogs loved the day and we highly recommend her!

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.

When Tara watches your pet

At our home, we work hard to ensure that pets are never left alone. Walks are on a 3-4 hour schedule, as well as being the first activity of the morning and last activity before bedtime. We have a beautiful, safe neighborhood that is quiet and conducive to dog-walking. We also have access to a nature trail for dogs who's parents are comfortable with nature walks. Our family works hard to make sure our fur friends are comfortable, clean and happy: the thermostat is a adjusted for dogs based on their needs, cuddles and playtime are frequent here in a house with children, and we bathe and rinse fur-babies as much as needed to keep them clean, cool and comfortable at all times. Dogs usually sleep in bed with us depending on their comfort-level and house-training status.
