I don’t know how to express how fantastic Georgina is! Our doggie stayed with Georgina for a week and having never had him away from home before to say we were anxious was an understatement. She messaged everyday with pictures and videos and made us relax knowing he was content. If I could give more than 5 starts I would. ❤️

Tara gave our lab Solar a lovely holiday. He had walks in the nearby forest and river paddles on hot days and got to meet other dogs and people too.Tara was really kind to him and he got special treats and toys to play with. It was very reassuring to get daily updates, photos and videos from Tara of Solar looking happy. Tara was very caring towards Solar and even gave him a going away present of dog treats. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone looking for a dogsitter.
