About Tara

Hello! 

My dog Bailey & I are looking forward to caring for your home &/or pets! 

I work from home coaching people to help them live their life with ease, grace & self compassion.  Pets are usually not left alone longer than a couple of hours in a day.

I have many years of experience with animals. I do animal healing as well. 

Your pets and your home will be in good hands!  

I have experience in giving meds, senior care, anxiety etc for those that need some extra love and care.

Bailey is a small dog and is a very gentle soul. He does well with many animals. 

I am open to long term stays as well :)

A little more about me.... I grew up on a farm and learned to love animals at a very young age. Cats, bunnies, dogs etc. I use to talk to them as a child. If you asked my sister she'd tell you I called the ants my friends! Who knew where the connection with animals would lead me.

in my business I use the guidance our animals are always giving us as a way to help their humans live the life they were truly meant too. 

Bailey and I love to go on adventures whether that be a stroll in the lark or taking a ride to the mountains.

i start my mornings with a dog walk (weather permitting .... Eek winter!!). And I often take a walking break mid day or close to supper as a way to end the day.

We do go off leash, but I am also open to taking any dog that needs to be on leash only. I work with the comfort of your pet.

Walks are anywhere from 30 mins-60 mins at a time. At least twice a day. Depending on weather and animal comfort & safety.

Your animals will be safe and protected as if they are one of my very own.

They are allowed on all of my furniture! We are a dog friendly household!

i take pictures and videos often and send them to you while you are away !

i may ask a lot of questions because I want to make sure your pets feel at home with me.

My yard is fully fenced. Currently I am living in a spacious walk out suite alone with the occasional friendly visitor. The woman that owns the house lives above and also dog sits as well.

Pets are allowed on my bed :).

I am open to many dog cuddles as possible!

I am open to a video chat and a meet and greet!

PS I am open to dog sitting outside of Calgary as I'm often in Canmore & Banff area as well as Cochrane & Okotoks

I work more on an energetic level with animals. When we humans are anxious, so will our animals. It’s a reflection. I take great care with any animal as if it’s my own and If I feel at anytime I do not think it’s a fit, I will honestly tell you. I take the time to get to know them, staying in their homes or mine and I make sure they feel comfortable. I treat your pet like family and they receive a lot of love with me! I let movement and comfort be the key to dog happiness!
