Making Dogs Happy and Owners Smile

Welcome to the Laughing Tail!

You’re a busy person. After a stressful day at work, you want to relax. And you want a dog who’s ready to relax with you.

THE LAUGHING TAIL can make it happen – let our professional one-on-one dog trainer provide sessions in your home, or ours!

We do it all – from teaching basic obedience to resolving complex behavioral problems. By combining dog training and physical exercise with pure fun, we keep canine minds and bodies active and healthy. Your restless pup gets some interaction and excitement during the day – burning off excess energy so he’s ready to kick back by the time you get home.

Plus we take care of all the heavy lifting: we train, you simply maintain. Whether your scrappy new puppy needs some manners or your old dog could use some new tricks, the Laughing Tail has the expertise to get the job done.
