I can’t say enough wonderful things about Country Pup. I have been working with them for almost a year and am so glad to have found someone whom I trust so much. Tammy, the owner, is friendly, helpful and incredibly responsive to email requests and schedule changes. The staff of dog walkers she employs are very responsible, friendly, and great with my dog, Finley. My favorite part is that every day they send me a picture and text about what they did with her. I feel very confident recommending them to anyone.

From our initial conversation on the phone Tammy ( the owner) made us feel like we were choosing the right company! We have never left our two dogs (Mini Schnauzers) alone in our home while we went away. We always did road trips with them but we decided to take a chance and have them cared for by Country Pup. Boy are we glad we did! The initial meet and greet started off rough because our pups ran out of the darn house (it was OUR fault and this has never happened before) but Tammy and Mary (our dog sitter for the week) handled the situation perfectly. It was a quick recovery from that and the rest of the meeting went great. Tammy is very through with gathering all of your pet’s details and follows them to a “T”.  We went on our trip and from the first visit we were believers! Lots of texts and pictures of our fur kids to let us know how they were doing. We had to most relaxing vacation!

I highly recommend Country Pup for your pet’s care, even the 30 minute afternoon walking visits were such a relief and helpful during a busy week or weekend leading up to vacation.

Tammy, Mary and Jessica were extremely professional and easy to communicate with. WE LOVE COUNTRY PUP!

The entire team was wonderful! Our dog is a bit skittish, and didn’t do well in a kennel so we tried Country Pup – they were FANTASTIC! Photos and updates each time they visited, even in the pouring rain! I will be using them again.

A neighbor recommended Country Pup to us for our 11-month puppy. We were very reluctant to leave our puppy love, but we needed someone to walk him a few times during the day while I was away overnight and my husband was at work.  I met Tammy and Lisa and was very impressed!  Tammy’s required paperwork shows her professionalism and concern for your dog’s safety and well-being.  She and Lisa were wonderful with our little guy, I was sent text updates, pictures and a video.

It was so reassuring to know our puppy was in such good and capable hands with people who really love dogs!! We will definitely be calling on Tammy again!!

Puppy Care


Tammy and the whole Country Pup staff are AMAZING! Tammy has taken care of our Rhodesian Ridgeback since we first brought her home and has cared for her like she is her own! The puppy sitting program has made it possible for us to make sure our pup has enough playtime and care during the day while we are at work.

Tammy is very experienced and extremely knowledgeable. I frequently ask her puppy questions and she always has excellent advice and tips to share. The whole team is very professional as well. I receive texts with updates and pictures of our puppy having a blast twice a day. Not to mention they are very flexible and accommodating based on the random changes in our schedules.

Our pup has the best life thanks to Tammy & Country Pup! I don’t know what we would do without them!

We needed a dog sitter last minute and called Tammy to meet with her. It was obvious she had experience with puppies and we felt comfortable leaving our baby with her. While we were out, we received pictures of our puppy which we thought was wonderful. We will be calling her again in the near future.

I first met Tammy at the Oxford food fest this past summer. We had recently lost our 10 year old dog, Lyla, and we had no intention of getting another dog for a long time. But, when you lose a pet, it’s therapeutic to talk to people you know are animal lovers. I stopped by Tammy’s booth at the festival just to say hello because she had such a warm smile and I was feeling sad about Lyla. I remember thinking if we did ever get another dog, I’d call Tammy, so I took her card assuming it would be filed away somewhere. Well, as fate would have it, just a few weeks later, our family unexpectedly met a furry puppy that just fit right into that empty space Lyla used to fill. Peiton was cuddly, silly, and adorable!! But, she was a 3 month old puppy with lots of energy and in need of potty training. Luckily, I had stored Tammy’s card in my glove compartment so as my husband drove, I pulled the card out on the ride home with Peiton in my lap. We called Tammy that same day and she came out to meet our family. If you’re an animal lover, and pet owner, you just KNOW intuitively if another person is too. Peiton immediately clicked with Tammy and we signed the contract for the Puppy program that day. After the first visit, it was crystal clear that we made the right choice. Tammy sent pictures to us during her visits with Peiton everyday and sent cute messages like “Peiton is a member of the Clean Crate Club!!!”. It’s so apparent she loves what she does. It’s also so apparent she knows how to train puppies because two weeks into the program, Peiton was already sitting on command and running to the door when she had to go out!! You cannot put a price on knowing your fur baby is being loved and cared for when you can’t be there with them! Tammy takes the time to answer any questions you have, and is constantly providing positive feedback and ideas for how to continue training with your pet. I can’t thank her, and Kiersten, enough for loving our Peiton as much as we do! And, I 150% suggest you give Tammy a call for any of your pet care needs!

Laura was great! She texted me while we were away to let us know she stopped in and all was well! She has a warm, friendly personality and I knew my cats would respond well to her immediately! I’m so glad I called your company and now have a reliable and dedicated person to take care of our cats while we’re away!

Puppy Care


My husband and I have been thrilled with Tammy and Country Pup Pet Sitting! Our puppy Clyde has recently graduated from the puppy program. We loved it so much that we have continued to have Tammy/Laura walk our dog three days a week. Everyone is very professional, helpful, and caring.

We highly recommend Country Pup Pet Sitting!

Tammy is WONDERFUL, CONFIDENT and TRUSTWORTHY! When we first met Tammy we were instantly impressed, she is warm, friendly, and very open about her love of dogs and pets in general. Darcy, our Wheaten Terrier, is enrolled in the Puppy Care program and instantly took to her as well!

Tammy offers “tips and tricks” on training and makes suggestions as well. Her texts let you know when she is at your home and what she has done and give you a sense of security.  I would recommend her and Country Pup to anyone!

Country Pup has been a God-send to my 89 year old Mom and her Dog-daughter “Pepper”.  Mom and Pepper live in Southbury’s Heritage Village where Country Pup’s dog walker, Laura, helps out with daily walks. Country Pup is affordable, dependable and most importantly, great friends to Mom and Pepper!  I give them the highest rating possible and know anyone who uses them will, too!

Lexi & Chester

I have used a kennel in the past and it felt very disruptive to our dogs, especially the puppy, Chester. They seemed very stressed when we dropped them off and when we picked them up.

I loved the daily text messages and pics of the pups while we were away! And appreciated how Tammy took such great care of them, played with them, and walked them daily! It is obvious how much she loves what she does!

Tammy and Kiersten were very accommodating to our changing schedule, provided me many updates by text and wrote detailed notes on their visits. I had them come 3x/day while I was away and husband home only late at night. My animals were relaxed and calm when I got home and the price was very reasonable. I will definitely be calling Country Pup again.

Margot G. – Oxford


I chose Country Pup for their responsiveness in the home visit and how easy it was to connect with Tammy. I wanted Gracie to feel comfortable and to be at home as she stresses in a kennel setting. I felt very comfortable leaving Gracie with Tammy and loved getting her text messages and pictures of Gracie while I was away. When I got home Gracie was happy and not stressed! I’ll definitely use Country Pup again!

Fabulous service! Tammy treated my dog like her own! When she stopped by after I returned home, Tigger came running up to her with his tail wagging and wanting to play! I haven’t seen him that excited to see someone in years! The service has been a life saver. They are very flexible and accommodating! Wish I knew about this service years ago! Would definitely recommend!

I found Country Pup Services on the internet, contacted them and made arrangements to meet and discuss my needs while I was to travel for two weeks. Tammy, the owner was very professional, showed concern about my pets and their needs and routines. I chose Country Pup because of Tammy’s attention to my directions and details. When I returned from vacation, I was so pleased by the care that was given. All my pets were happy, well fed and the house was clean. The care was superb and reasonable! Kiersten now watches my pets while I’m away and gives them kind, loving care.  I’m totally happy with Country Pup!

Tammy is an excellent caregiver. She is a responsible dog owner who goes the extra mile in ensuring that her own animals are well cared for and properly trained. She is very knowledgeable and confident around animals and I believe that animals can sense when someone feels comfortable around them. In short, my dogs just love Tammy! She recently took care of our newly adopted dogs when we unexpectedly had to go out of town and we were very pleased with her services. We would highly recommend Tammy and Country Pup Pet Sitting and will definitely use her services again.

The Gang of 5

I have 5 dachshunds who do not take to just anybody. Tammy took the time to get to know each of them individually and by the time she left they were best friends ! All went smoothly with her visits. The dogs were happy and I was thrilled with the care they received! I highly recommend Country Pup!

Retired ACO

After almost 29 years, I recently retired as an Animal Control Officer for Shelton, CT. During that time I met Tammy. She raised German Shepherds and was active in different animal organizations. I never received any complaints about her dogs, we met for a common cause and a love of animals. Tammy helped me with one very special incident involving a German Shepherd which had been shot while on the back deck of its home. Tammy was instrumental in getting an organization to make a large donation to a reward fund we had set up to identify and arrest the person who shot the German Shepherd. I would not hesitate to have Tammy care for my pets, I know she would treat them as her own and they would be well cared for in my absence. If you would like to speak to me, contact Country Pup Pet Sitting for my cell number.
