We would just like to take a moment to say how much we are going to miss our little guy, Fox. Sadly for Tail Gate Fox and his owners will be moving to a new house and Fox’s last day of daycare will be this Friday. Tail Gate hopes they have an absolute blast making new, lifelong memories in their new home and we hope they think of us from time to time. Have fun on your next adventure Fox! Come visit us again soon!

Photo Bomb!

There are no words to explain how dogs, like buster here, learn how to properly photo bomb their friends, such as Oso. The best memories come from the randomness of all our furry loved one’s personalities in pictures that we are able to capture during their day here at Tail Gate!

Foster Girl

casey blog

Recently we have partnered up with the Fetching Tails rescue which we are extremely excited about. This is one of their rescues, Casey. We are currently fostering this beautiful girl puppy but Tail Gate is also trying to help either find a foster home for her or her forever home. She is extremely sweet, crate and house trained, and socialized. We have been working with Casey on basic commands as well as helping her learn positive play within the group. Please contact Tail Gate or Fetching Tails if you are interested in meeting this loving girl.

New Hair Styles


Grooming is one of our most popular requests here at Tail Gate. Our wonderful groomer, Kelli, and her 2 assistants, Devin and Unique, do a wonderful job when it comes to your pup’s “new do.” Although the Tail Gate staff does baths and nails, Kelli does brush outs, baths, nails, ears, teeth, cutting, matting, trimming, and so much more! Especially with spring here, and summer just around the corner, call to make an appointment with Kelli today to get your pup in for their new hair do!

The Tail Gate Family

Kevin and houlie

Our Tail Gate staff is one huge family. We pride ourselves with hiring the most wonderful and friendly attendants and receptionists who have a great passion for dogs. We love and enjoy all of our furry friends that join our Tail Gate family as we grow. We are always excited to welcome a newcomer and show the same amount of love and affection we would if they were our own dogs. Our attendants love dogs and some of them are even going to be working with dogs in their career. As you can see here, Kevin is showing his love to one of our regulars, Houlie, during a beautiful day of play. Our attendants can’t wait to meet your pup and give them the same love and affection!

Outdoor Madness!


Spring is finally upon us and summer is just around the corner. No one likes having to stay home inside on the beautiful days that await us. Everyone loves being outside, enjoying the sun and summer breeze. Tail Gate is a magnificent place to bring your 4 legged loved one to be able to get all of their energy out playing with all of their friends. Because we are located in an industrial area, we are able to be outside all day long! We have 3 outdoor play areas where dogs are separated by size and temperament and the forth outdoor area has our awesome 4ft above ground pool that the pups love to splash in!
