Meet Our Staff



Michelle’s entire life has been spent rescuing, taking care of, and owning both dogs and cats. She has volunteered in many capacities including fostering, pet transport, and assisting rescues with vetting new potential adopters.

In 2008, she made the leap from the corporate world to become an entrepreneur. Starting Tails on Trails was inspired by the love of her first dog, Murphy.

Her dream was to create a business that had the highest quality expectations and provided the most trustworthy care to families, like herself, that valued their pets as they would any family member. It was her mission to provide safe, honest, and reliable pet care, while developing trustworthy relationships with her valued clients.

In 2014, she expanded to add a dog grooming salon where she has the same attention to detail. Her goal at The Sudsy Puppy, has been to provide safe, loving, and gentle grooming experiences to both dogs and cats. She has focused on having skilled and patient groomers that not only provide the highest quality grooming but pride themselves on a peaceful experience for your pets.

In her personal time, Michelle still volunteers when she can. Her pet family consists of three dogs, Ranger (Vizsla mix), Kealy (Shepherd/Husky mix), and Ursa (White Shepherd mix).

Staff Walkers

Our staff of walkers undergo a 90-day, proprietary training program that includes a focus on animal health and behavior, as well as scenario training, and training on our standard operating procedures. They work in teams, communicate through modern, private channels to update members on any issues or care instruction changes. They maintain a strong team environment.

Our walkers are part-time and have various different personal interests that include family, friends, and their personal pets. Many are pursuing additional education and career interests, in addition to working as a part of the Tails on Trails team. We are happy to provide information on your area’s team, when speaking to you regarding services.
