Your Pet Deserves Love and Attention
Our pet care teams provide the gentle, friendly, and loving care your pets deserve.
Our goals are basic but significant: to offer the best options for your pets; to present a positive approach to training; to maintain your pet's optimal health and well-being; and to offer support to homeless animals and those who provide for their welfare. We believe all living creatures deserve humane, compassionate treatment. That is why the training and education methods we promote are based on a philosophy of partnership, respect, and positive communication ... we want to improve the lives of all animals -- one TTouch at a time!™
The Mindful Tails' staff offers the highest standards of service and measure their success by exceeding the expectations of clients -- from hosting the "Ask the TTouch Practitioner" booth at pet adoption events, to hosting workshops, lectures and demos at various events and organizations, and to working with pet owners.

"Jack [my 10-year-old lab/shepherd mix, who has been depressed after losing his dog-buddy, Pierre, was bionic after last week's session–really energized–it obviously helped him a lot. The ZigZag TTouch is great--it's like a key that allows automatic entry."
