About Tara

Hi!

Welcome to my page and thanks for stopping by :0)

Not only do I have 30 years experience with looking after other people’s furry friends but I myself was born and raised with animals from a very young age, with my mother being the very well known & indeed popular - local dog whisperer!

If there was ever a fact more clearly spoken - it is that my life would not have been the same without my furry friends, they really are my sunshine, passion & drive in life.

My life desires are to eventually to open a boarding home for dogs whom have been wrongly treated or are without a home - saving as many as I possible can.

Like most of us, I have loved and lost my own and can truly say...the better I get to know men, the more I love my dogs!!!

I can offer a proven life long record of quality care, expertise, a clear and enhanced criminal records check and untold cuddles.

I have a rule in my home, which dictates that animals are superior - so if you must sit on the floor as the couch is taken, so be it!

I spend precious time with the owners at the meet and greet to endeavour your pets everyday routine - I will then ensure I match this. I specialise at working with anxious dogs and have a proven record of illuminating this with lots of my tricks I’ve learnt from life experience and class room studies.

My home is completely modernised, clean, tidy and spacious. I have a whole bundle of 100% natural dog treats, beautiful dog beds and lots of toys, from puppy through to adult.

I am joining this site purely for my love of animals, and I can promise you I would go above and beyond to ensure both the owners and animals are 100% confident in my care.

I am forever laughed at by friends as I’m called the ‘care taker’ mainly because of how large my set of keys is (other peoples) but also because of my natural characteristic to care for animals!

I am more than happy to walk your furry friends, or simply pop in for a cuddle, kiss and welfare check (us mummy’s worry!). I have a beautiful walk down by rivers with plenty of land situated a stones throw from me which I walk daily. It is safe, free from the majority of vehicles and very very peaceful 😊

I will ensure furry friends family receive photos and I am more than happy to video call.

For your peace of mind, I have a great relationship with 2 local vets should that ever become apparent I will act effectively.

I am happy to pick up and drop off pets for boarding should you need me too. This is an additional service. Please just ask!

I have won many awards for training 3 different breeds and it is my passion to extend my expertise as soon as I get time.

I am currently studying a behaviour course, and moving onto level 4 canine care which I’m throughly enjoying! I have qualified in pet medication and I am able to administer. I also hold a pet first aid qualification.

Any questions! Please do just ask!

This was Spectre’s first stay away from home so we were understandably a bit anxious. He was reluctant to go in at first but Tara (and family) were patient and welcoming. Spectre ended up loving his stay and didn’t want to come home 🤣Constantly updated throughout the day. Loving home and absolute peace of mind for owners. Will 100% recommend

I was a little confused with who was looking after Bell. I was not sure if it was Tara or her daughter. Being a first time user of Pawshake I was a little anxious.

Once the initial confusion was sorted out and I received a lot of photos and vids of Bell I began to relax that I had made the right decision in using them.

Bell enjoyed her stay and I would definitely recommend and use again.
