"Tara's training is amazing. Beyond that, who better to walk your dog or babysit your pets than the trainer they know and LOVE  (seriously — my dog adores her). Besides — training and practice during walks and while you're away? That's as big a bonus as you can get"

Day Visits

Starting at $20.00

Work, family, responsibilities. Life gives us plenty of reasons to be away from our pets. If you're going to be out for a while and you're worried about how they'll get on, book a daytime visit (or two). Tara can check in, make sure they have what they need, and leave them happy and settled.

Home: Testimonials

Having a golden retriever puppy, we were both in love and nervous. Having a larger breed, more hyper dog than we've had before, we knew we would need help. Tara has helped and more. She's just amazing. Cooper is now well adjusted, happy, and a (pretty) good listener.

Tara Harvey

Tara adores pets and loves her job. As you can imagine, she has pets of her own. Her dog, Moo, is a rescue who struggles with anxiety but is full of love. Her three cats, Storm, Charlie, and Sylvester, are all rescues as well. They make for a fun and furry household! So, if you need pet sitting, rest assured she's got enough experience and love to take the best care of your furry friends.

A true advocate for canines, Tara uses only positive reinforcement training techniques. She loves working with new puppies and older dogs alike. Whether working on basic obedience or agility and advanced techniques, Tara puts the dogs' wellbeing and happiness first.
