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!

Tara and her family were great with my dog Livvy! I know that she was well taken care of and received plenty of attention while there. I would highly recommend Tara and her family.

We're so happy we found Tara on Rover.com. She and her family took excellent care of our bulldog, Belle, and so I have no reservations at all about asking Tara for her help again when we go away. It felt soooo much better leaving Belle with Tara in their quiet, comfortable home than it did leaving her in a kennel. Thanks Tara, and thanks Rover.com!

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.
