Tara and her family has been taking excellent care of my two fur babies for over a year now. She is always our top pick for a dog sitter because I know our dogs get the best care, and I love all the pictures and constant communication. I am extremely picky when it comes to dog sitters, and am so thankful to have Tara and her family help out whenever we leave town!

Tara and her family do an incredible job taking care of our dog. We know this to be true because our pup is always happy when we drop her off with her "vacation family." She gets lots of walks and lots of attention. I feel completely at ease knowing my dog is in good loving hands when I am traveling.

Tara is fantastic. We had never left our Goldendoodle with a sitter before. She made him feel right at home. She sent us photos showing us how the visit was going. Murphy enjoyed playing with her family and going on a walk in the neighborhood with them. We will definitely use Tara again when we visit San Diego in the future.

Carlsbad is Perfect Puppy Paradise

We are an active family of six (four children). We are all dog lovers and our dog, Lily, goes just about everywhere with us.

What Tara would like to know about your dog

Do they have any special needs, behaviors or toys or clothing that would make them more comfortable with us. An owners "smell" can bring comfort to a nervous pooch. However, we have so much love and activity around we have never had a dog we couldn't get to warm up to us and calm their fears..

When Tara watches your pet

We live in Carlsbad so there are plenty of trails and beautiful, dog-friendly spots in our neighborhood. Sometimes, we walk down to the beach area and walk nearby or play in our cul-de-sac!
