About Tamara

I have always been in love with animals, dogs having been in my life from the very start. My childhood was spent with a cat, a rabbit and more than three dogs. Still, I only had the chance to experience my very own puppy when I was 21, after going to school in vet tech for 5 months. I adopted a nordic breed type pup I named Banshee. She was the first of many dogs, of course... And wild adventures! It brought me into a very fascinating world of sled dogs and rescue, where I took part into for a year, fostering over 25 dogs which I took home, cared for and found new owners for. I saw the sad truth that not every dog was lucky and a bunch had rough starts. I was unable to keep doing this amazing work, the money and space lacking due to moving out, but my heart knows that the day I will be able to help again, I will for sure! My basic knowledge, experience and contact with a variety of dogs (animals in general) from different lifestyles makes me very comfortable and relaxed around them, knowing how to handle situations and being unafraid of any breed/types. Currently living with my family and Banshee who is now 6 years old, I have decided to offer my spare time to people in need of pet services!

I have attended vet tech school for a couple of months, learning cat and dog behavior, basic care and needs, while also working with cattle in a dairy farm on the campus. I have personally owned/fostered degus, rabbits, chinchillas and rats. I also ran a sled dog rescue which fostered in a year over 25 nordic breeds which all got rehomed after care/sterilization. I am confident in caring for any type of cat and dog, behavior problems do not scare me. I do not personally work with chokers and leashes longer than 1.50 meter while walking for safety reasons. I can offer flexible services directly at your home for your convenience! I will also gladly walk your dog(s) for a good hour so he gets his needed exercise!
