Our philosophy
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!
Our organization
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.
The staff also works with a number of rescue and animal care groups, including:  Angel's Gate Hospice and Rehabilitation Center for Animals; Bobbi and the Strays Animal Rescue; Juste Pour Les Animaux; Pets Alive Sanctuary; and other private groups, to socialize and/or correct behavioral issues in cats and dogs, as well as with aging, ill, disabled/special needs animals.
