    Pet Parents Testimonials

    Nicole Davis
    Playful Dog Pet Parent
    I have a 75lbs Goldendoodle; who still acts like a puppy but is 7 years old. I have boarded her since she was a pup at various kennels and vets, but none compare to Healthy Tails! It is clean, the people are friendly and patient every time I call to schedule boarding or check to make sure I scheduled, the groomer does a great job with her fur, my dog gets to play, and they are reasonably priced. I drive an hour and a half out of Missouri because they do a great job! I highly recommend them whenever I can.

    We took our new GSD to this class (Puppy Kindergarten). It was great! We will continue to take our pup to the Dog Camps. I highly recommend this class. We saw significant changes in our Lambeau. Thank you, Healthy Tails!
