Consistency plays a big roll across all of the programs we offer here at K9 Tailshakers.  

From Training and Boarding to our Day Programs consistency is our biggest goal.

Consistency is the key to any successful program at K9 Tailshakers, particularly Training.  Although, our Day Programs & Boarding guests have consistency as well by providing guests with routine schedules and structure allowing our guests to relax and know what to expect.


Here at K9 Tailshakers, the programs run  the same way everyday.  We encourage consistency in training, daycare, boarding as well as in the home.

Being consistent, is being clear, fair and the best way to help communicate and build trust with your dog. 

Why choose

K9 Tailshakers?


K9 Tailshakers is committed to providing the best care that your dog understands and needs.  We have been a locally family owned, small business for over a decade.  Truly caring about our clients is a way of life; not a marketing pitch to get you in the door. 


We understand and want to do what is in your dogs best interest and not just "sell" the client. Your dog doesn't know the difference between a blue or a green wall, but they do know the difference when it comes to proper care and compassion.   At K9 Tailshakers you're paying for what really matters and not just something shiny. 

Our goal behind the scenes, in all of our programs, is to provide your dog with expectations, routine and consistency so there is no element of surprise.  Consistency, eliminates the unknown, allowing your dog to relax.


We also pride ourselves in a clean and sanitary facility where daycare floors, kennel floors and sleeping areas are disinfected daily.

We are proud of our team and love our team.  We believe in family and supporting each other and our clients.  Our educated, experienced and compassionate team are carefully chosen personally by the business owner as not only part of the business team but also part of our family.  


We believe in providing our team with  on-going education such as Pet Tech First Aid and CPR/Rescue Breathing and many external training options from Industry Leaders making our team, facility and care the best around!
