Tails with Taylors

Pet Care & Supply

About Us

Chad & Katrina Taylor are a husband and wife team happily living a life "gone to the dogs!"

With four sons they are experienced at raising children and pets together. In addition to the crew of boys Chad & Katrina's family includes "Scout" the Chesapeake Bay Retriever and the coincidentally separately named "Olive" the Miniature Dachschund and "Olive" the cantakerous cat!

Katrina is the Tails with Taylors dog trainer and dog walker, and Chad joins her on afternoon dog walks when his schedule allows. Prior to meeting Katrina, Chad worked in the natural pet food industry, which of course helped him capture Katrina's heart.


Chad & Katrina maintained a show dog breeding kennel as live-in caretakers providing 24/7 care for dogs of all ages. They are accustomed to managing a multi-dog household including dogs that cannot freely socialize with other dogs because they are intact (not spayed/neutered) or have temperament issues or illness/injury

Happiness is a lap full of puppies!

A Note from Katrina

From my earliest memories as a toddler at Timberline Lodge always looking for Heidi the resident Saint Bernard, to spending family reunions in North Dakota as a teenager, sitting under the shade tree bonding with the farm dogs instead of my relatives, I can't remember a time dogs weren't a big part of my life.


On the best days and worst days "Scout" my Chesapeake Bay Retriever is by my side with a "Well, what adventure is next?" attitude. Who could ask for a more supportive friend than that?

But sometimes life throws a lot of obstacles in our way! With career demands, travel and family emergencies sometimes our canine best friends get left to their own devices with pent up energy and the occasional penchant for destruction. That's where I can help you out, with training , exercise and other options to keep your best friend contended while you are otherwise occupied.
