Animal Sitters, Dog Trainers and Interns



Animal Sitter

Hello, my name is Bree. Animals have been a big part of my life, with having over 30 years experience with dogs and cats, and almost 20 with ferrets. I love that every animal has their own personality and enjoy learning what makes them unique. When I’m not with animals I enjoy journaling, crafting and gaming. I hope to one day program my own game.

My name is Lexi and I am an animal lover to the core. I love and care for each and every animal I meet. My dream job has always been a veterinarian but until then I am just happy to work with my furry friends! I am excited to have this job because this is what I love doing. Animals bring a special light into my life!



Trainer & Assistant Manager

My name is Sarah. I have been around animals my entire life, I started working with horses and dogs when I was 12 and did training and showing for 6 years. In my early 20 I went to full time work with dogs, studying behavior, training and observation. I have been training for the last 16 yrs. Dogs are my life and passion. I’m so excited to work with Happy Tailz and get to spend all my time helping dogs and building great relationships with dogs and their owners! 



Dog Trainer

Hello, my name is Philip. I’ve had a dog obsession for as long as I can remember. As a kid, I used to play the video game Nintendogs dreaming of the day I could take care of my own dog. My first job was taking care of dogs at a dog day care and I still volunteer at my local shelter. Now I’m proud to call 3 dogs part of my family! I love teaching them new things and I’ll love teaching your dog too! With positive teaching techniques, your dog will love it as well! I was inspired to study psychology in part by Dr. John Pilley who taught his dog Chaser over 1,000 words. I'm amazed at the level of communication that can be achieved between people and their dogs and I want as many people to experience that as possible!



Dog Trainer

Hi, my name is Grace! I have been involved with training since the young age of 12 years old. I started out with taking our family dogs to classes and I haven’t stopped since! This allowed me to find my passion of understanding animals on a deeper level. I am driven to train and help others understand human and animal communication while developing mutual relationships. I have 10 years of experience training and showing llamas. I have worked at dog daycares for 3 years as well as 2 years of dog training experience. While I was in college, I had an internship where I had the privilege to train and work with service dogs for a year! I believe I can help you and your dog accomplish your goals without the use of force, fear, or pain.

Hi, my name is Bri. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls in May 2021 with a Bachelor's Degree in Companion Animal Science. I have a versatile knowledge of dogs with my 8 years of experience in animal rescue, 3 years in veterinary work, 3 years in dog daycare, and 2 years of dog training. As a trainer, I wholeheartedly believe that I can achieve my clients’ desired results without ever inflicting pain, fear or intimidation on the dogs. My ultimate goals as a trainer is to bridge the communication gap between humans and dogs in addition to making the lives of dogs and their owners a more comfortable one!
