Tamara Wright

Personal Assistant

There are many little details that go into raising a beautiful, healthy and well-socialized puppy!  Having been raised in our home, Tamara has been involved in every aspect of puppy and adult dog care and I can count on her to jump in and help wherever she is needed!

On a typical day, you can see her preparing puppies or adults for photography sessions and helping with socializing young baby puppies or training our older puppies. 

We also entrust puppies into her care for vehicle and in-cabin personal hand delivery to your closest major airport, your baby is in good hands!

I couldn't do this without Tamara's excellent help, she is a valuable and important part of our team here at Okefeild Acres!

About Our Name

Many people ask us where we found our name and why we spell it the way that we do.  When deciding on our name we wanted something earthy sounding that described our property.  The majority of the trees in our pastures are oak trees so we wanted to use "oak" and "field" then thought using "acres" would possibly be a good addition.  

With a bit of searching Janet came across a will from Berkshire, England dated 1701 with a property named "Okefeild."  Since her family is of English descent, we thought that it would be awesome to use part of her English heritage in our name.  Click here to learn more.
