QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT TRAINING TAILS


How did we get started?

Like many great things in life, Training Tails began with a passion. Tom realized his natural talent for canine training as he worked through basic and advanced training programs with his GSD, Brandi. He also found that through this consistent work together, their relationship deepened, and their bond became stronger. Training Tails was born out of this work with and love for Brandi.

The idea of Doggie Daycare came from the desire to expand a successful dog training business and to address a need in the area for a safe, loving place for dogs to go while their owners are away all day.
