About Tara
Hello there.

My name is Tara and I'd love to take care of your pet for you.

I'm a kind and patient person, who loves animals and who understands how much your pet means to you. I'm sensible and security minded, so I will ensure that both your pet is safe, happy and cared for and your house is locked securely after we leave.

I love playing with and caring for animals, and grew up with several cats and a dog of my own. I learned how to feed and care for them, to clean up after them, and to comfort or give them attention. My mum still has three cats, and I frequently provide care for them too. I know that all animals are different, and have their own needs and concerns, so I am also happy accommodating quirks and routines. This might include following and feeding a special diets, giving medication or following special instructions. If there is more than one animal and one is an alpha or more dominant, I am comfortable making sure the less dominant ones get their fair share of food and water too!

I am not in a position to own my own animals at the moment or to provide sleepovers at my apartment, so I caring for your animal in your own home is something I enjoy immensely.

I am available for pet minding, pet sitting, walks and general caring, feeding, and also overnight stays in your home. I am fit, energetic and strong, so am comfortable with all dog sizes. I don't discriminate on size though, so I'm also available for cat and small animal cuddles!

I live In the Inner North but am happy to travel around Canberra, particularly within the Inner North. I work during the day, but I'm available for early morning, lunchtime and evening walks and care, and will happily give your pet lots of cuddles and attention before or after those hours. Depending on the location, I can also provide a short lunchtime feeding or walking session too (1 hour max).

Please feel free to email or text me for more details, or to arrange a time to discuss your pet care needs.

Pet Sitting - Jul 22, 2018
Tara was an excellent pet sitter. She sent us news of Mr P while we were away and we came home to a very happy cat and a clean, well ordered house.
