Dewey seemed to have a good morning and afternoon with Tara. He was happy to see me when I picked him up, but not hysterical--so that's a good thing! Looks like he and Tara got along very well.

Tara has done a great job with Juneau. She can be a difficult dog and doesn’t like everyone she meets, so I really appreciate Tara working with her and getting her some great walks in during the day!

Tara did a great job with Grant. He was as happy as could be when I picked him up. She kept me up to date on his stay with pictures. Given this was Grant's first time with her, it was very comforting. I would recommend Tara for sure and will be booking with her again in the future.

Walk, play, hang out with your dogs

I love dogs. Like most dog people say, I'm better with them than I am with people.
Over the past 10 years or so I have cared for all kinds of dogs from puggles to rottweilers, puppies to oldies. Your dogs (and the occasional cats) become my best friends and top priorities while under my care. That care may include walking (maybe even some jogging), day care, playing outside, feeding or just cuddling on the ...

When Tara watches your pet

The best place to walk is usually around your own neighborhood. But for longer stays let me know if your dog is okay with car rides and I will be happy to take them to one of the local Metroparks or the dog park. Or we can just play with their toys at home and watch some TV together.
