Top Dog Walking Experiences in La Jolla

Tara
Tara
Review by Alexis A.

"Tara is amazing with my pup Bentley! He loved her from the instant he met her and I will definitely have her walk him again. Tara arrived on time, brought him on an excellent walk, and wrote a great walk summary so I knew Bentley was happy while I was at work. Tara clearly has experience working with dogs because she handled Bentley perfectly even though he can sometimes be reactive to other dogs. Overall, I highly recommend Tara!"
