About Tara and Mark

I have always had dogs in my life , in 2015 we lost both our cocker spaniels to cancer and could not face having another dog. That was when we started looking after other people's dogs through DogBuddy. We hadn't planned to get another dog but at the end of September 2017 we were lucky enough to adopt Ida, although a rescue dog her only problem is she doesn't like to be on her own which is ideal as she is just as happy to welcome our doggy guests as we are. We think Ida is about 5,(at sept 2017) she is a small Labrador X ( with what , no one is too sure) whatever she is , she is gentle, obedient and loving and adores everything and everyone. We are a reasonably quiet household now as 2 of our sons have their own houses locally and our middle son and his girlfriend are travelling the world, at the moment in Australia for a few years. We like to meet our guests before we accept a booking so we can make sure we are all compatible and offer 2 free meet ups, 1 at our house and 1 on a walk, more would be nice but just aren't practical. We look forward to welcoming your dog soon xx

    Tara and Mark were fantastic!! I had organised a night away with my wife for her birthday, and our regular sitter let us down at the last minute. From the minute we walked into the house the dogs were welcomed as if they were Tara's own. We felt incredibly comfortable with leaving both Sky (a 9 month old lab) and Gracie (a 4 year old Norfolk Terrier) in her capable hands, and justifiably so. They were treated wonderfully, and I would certainly recommend Tara and Mark for any sitting services. Thank you again!!

    Tara and Mark were amazing! They looked after Forrest like he was their dog and he had an absolutely fantastic time with Ida! Thank you so much for giving Forrest such a great time. I would definately recommend Tara and Mark to anyone! 5*****

    This is the second time I have left my little doggy with Tara and Mark, they now have a dog of their own and she is lovely. Our dogs seem to have become firm friends and I think Charlie is going to miss his new companion lots, lots of doggy walks together coming up soon I think! Thank you for being the best and only people I will trust with my Charlie xx
