About Us

Tara- Owner

My name is Tara. I've been infatuated with animals ever since I was little. I use to spend all of my free time in the woods in my backyard observing and drawing animals and trying to figure out how to get closer to them. As I grew up my infatuation never died and I finally figured out how to put my passion to use: dog walking and pet sitting!


I grew up with animals of all shapes and sizes. I've had experience with numerous different dog breeds, cats, birds, hamsters, guinea pigs, chinchillas, fresh water fish, frogs, goats, chickens, ducks, rabbits and horses, which I rode religiously from age 11 to age 24. 

Up until I decided to take the leap and start my own business my background was in retail management which I worked in up until I was 28. Most of my experience dealt with human resources and customer service which helped me easily transition to being a business owner and understanding my clients needs. 


With a lot of love and support from my family and friends I have been able to do what I love and provide animals with the love and care they deserve since 2015.
