Tailchasers offers top care for dogs' minds and bodies

Are you ready for a higher level of pet care? Meet Matt and Randa Clark of Tailchasers Pet Care! They pride themselves on providing services tailored to the mental well-being of the pets, and they are the proud winners of the Daily Herald's Readers' Choice Best of the Best award in the Doggie Day Care category and three Top Pick awards in Pet Boarding, Pet Grooming and Dog Training Facility.

Tailchasers' newest location, Arlington Dog Resort, is Randa's dream to create a space for dogs to learn while they play. Randa spent the last two years perfecting the details of the revolutionary Dog Day School program before bringing this dog-centered day care experience to Arlington Heights. Their enrichment counselors spend one-on-one time with each dog every day to teach them new commands. Their pet parents receive instructions and a video each day, so they can continue to practice the new behaviors at home. Dogs go home with their bodies and their minds exercised without the emotional stress of all day unstructured play.

Tailchasers Academy is part of Arlington Dog Resort and offers a monthly membership, so pet owners can attend classes without having to commit to a certain day and time each week. Dogs in levels classes move up at their own pace and enjoy reward-based positive reinforcement methods, so the canine students offer behaviors out of love and respect, not fear of punishment.

Tailchasers Pet Care started in 2004 as a dog walking, pet sitting and in-home dog training company. Tailchasers believes the ability to train their pet care professionals to provide a higher level of care is worth the additional expense, so they utilize employees instead of subcontractors. Tailchasers has been offering in-home services for over 17 years, and their loyal customers are like family to them.

In 2018, they added Barrington Pet Resort with boarding, day care, grooming and dog training classes to expand services. Matt, Randa and their two children live at Barrington Pet Resort along with their two rescue dogs, Floyd and Finn. Barrington Pet Resort has a half-acre play yard they like to call Dog Heaven. Their spacious suites with private dog runs provide the perfect getaway for dogs while their owners travel. They even offer private play options for dogs who prefer to play with a human playmate instead of other dogs. They provide many training options, including board and train, private training and group classes, all using positive reinforcement reward-based training in line with their standard of care focused on the mental well-being of the dogs.

In 2020, they added Pet Wants to provide a fresher, healthier food for their guests at Barrington Pet Resort. The pets can smell the freshness, and the healthy treats and chews provide a healthy supplement to a pet's diet along with enrichment for their mental well-being. You can buy Pet Wants at your local farmers market, Barrington Pet Resort, Arlington Dog Resort, or their store at Tailchasers Academy!

Tailchasers looks forward to continuing their mission of "Chasing a better world, one tail at a time."

Randa and Matt Clark and their children live at one Tailchasers location, Barrington Pet Resort, which offers a half-acre play yard with private suites and dog runs. Tailchasers was named the Best of the Best Doggie Day Care in the Daily Herald Readers' Choice contest.
