Fun Facts

The best advice Tarah has ever received is “Expect the best of people. Most people really do have the best of intentions.” Not everyone knows this about Tarah, but she has spent a significant amount of time learning about the intricacies of dog behavior and training. This has helped her rescue pup, Mila, enjoy life and be less fearful of the world around her.
