Tara was great! Riley came home seemingly unfazed. Thanks, Tara for your special care of him.

Tara regularly sent updates that reassured things were going well (or that my dog had chewed up her sleeping pad). Pup came back no worse for wear and appeared to have a great time with Tara's dogs. Will use her again.

Pets are family!

Leaving pets behind while you are away is always a stressful experience. My goal is to ease that concern as much as possible. While in my home, your dogs will be integrated into the household. They will be loved on and cared for, and I will follow their usual routine as closely as possible. This is an active household and can meet the needs of your energetic dog, or snooze on the couch with your ...

What Tara would like to know about your dog

For everyone’s safety, I would like to know as much as possible about your dog. Are they escape artists? Do they have food allergies? What medications are they taking and do they have any chronic illnesses such as seizures or stress diarrhea? Do they guard food or objects or have any aggressive tendencies? How about a fear of thunderstorms or loud noises and how do they react? Are they a fence jumper or have any behavioral problems (doesn’t like men, women, children, certain parts of the body or collar touched, etc.)? Are they house trained/crate trained? What is their typical feeding schedule? Does your pet do anything that others would find unusual?

I do ask that you provide your dog’s food as this will minimize their stress while being away from home. I also ask that dogs be up to date on vaccinations/titers and be on a flea preventive (especially between March – November).

About Tara's Home

When Tara watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I live in a large suburban neighborhood with ample areas for walking. There is also a neighborhood park that can be accessed easily with a short walk. The park contains walking trails with shade. We also have a nearby dog park as well as a city park that is very pleasant for outdoor excursions.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement:
I will use my best judgment in this area. Typically, your dog will be allowed to sleep in the master bedroom at night unless the dog is not comfortable with that arrangement. I prefer to keep the animals restricted to the one room so that I know where everyone is if an emergency were to arise. Puppies will be kenneled if they are not housebroken to assist with house training and to minimize accidents and chewing incidents. If preferred, dogs can be kenneled, either in one of my kennels or your own if you provide it.

Time I'll spend with your dog (my home):
I spend most of my free time at home with my dogs or we are out together doing something. Your dogs will join me in those excursions if you are comfortable with that.

Time I'll spend with your dog (your Home):
Drop in visits will occur at 4, 8, or 12-hour intervals when at all possible. Each visit is usually 30 minutes, depending on the pets and the tasks required. We will be sure to discuss specific needs and agree on a routine before you leave. Up to three visits per day can be provided during the week. Weekends allow for 4 visits per day if needed. Package pricing available on a case-by-case basis for multi pet households with different species.
