About Us

'This is One Dog Loving Community!'

The TailGait Market opened in 2010. We saw a huge need for quality products that either were not available at all in our area, or were an hour away. This is one DOG LOVING community!

A specialty pet supply focusing on health had been rolling around my head for many years. I wanted to make available the great products that I knew were out there, but not widely available to the general public. Products that work are HIGH-QUALITY, or just plain fun. Having a background in food and nutrition, plus training and showing dogs, gave me an inside to some great products. We really want all dogs and cats to have the benefit of quality food, the right supplements, interactive play and fun. That all makes for dogs and cats those are healthy in Mind and Body! We are VERY lucky to have some great women working for us, all who have their own special set of skills and interests.

***After Carol had been working here for a few weeks, she turned to me and said, “WOW, you have VERY SERIOUS dog people for customers!” They ARE serious about the care of their animals. Carol is now our Self-Proclaimed “Puffy-Muffin” dog person, who lends a little less seriousness to the store. Her laughter is catchy.
