Our mission, OUR PASSION, is to carve a new field in educated dog products that promote animal welfare and positive human + canine relationships. We love what we do and at any given time of day you can probably find our staff shamelessly singing and dancing while handcrafting a new, innovative product or service. We can’t help it. What we do feels like our own kind of music and we’ve been producing it since 2007 (with a slight remix in 2020). Our mission is to create a better world for dogs and their human counterparts… and if they just happen to look super stylish in the process? So be it.
Through multi-channel collaborations, we work with veterinary behaviorists, veterinarians, certified animal and dog trainers, speech pathologists, teachers, and pediatricians (we like to talk to people about dogs) – all so that we can offer you the most innovative and effective products. Oh, and did we mention they also look rad? When your dog sees our products, they’re going to feel that early-morning, time for a walk, Lionel Ritchie VIBE that says, “Hello. Is it me you’re looking for?”
So come jam with us while we create a better future for dogs!

A bachelor's degree in industrial/organizational psychology and counseling first introduced me to the fascinating world of behavior training. In 2007 I founded Trailblazing Tails as a dog running service in Los Angeles, CA and quickly realized how little I knew about the practical application of behavior training. I have devoted my life to learning all I can about dogs and their behavior and continue to further my education through professional conferences, my professional community, classes, and every dog I meet!
I dream of a world where people listen and understand how dogs talk, which I believe is the first step in helping solve many of the everyday problems dog parents face. This includes building lighter weight tools to help encourage better communication with our dogs as well as up-to-date educational materials made available for FREE so people don’t have to fall victim to scrolling through pages of misinformation online.
My desire is to create products and materials that educate without alienating. Trailblazing Tails is an all-inclusive community who welcomes those who want to learn more. My goals: 1. Lower the bite statistics in our country, as 77% of dog bites are to children with the family dog or a friend's. 2. Create and build knowledgable products that find solutions to everyday problems while considering the dog.
I've been proudly handcrafting since 2016 with BioThane, which is a waterproof, odor-proof, and durable material manufactured in Ohio. We also deeply believe in recycling, reducing, and reusing as much as we can, including, finding creative ways to use our scrap materials for products and enrichment toys, scrap materials to build or modify workshop machines and tools, purchasing used furnishings for our shop and building or stumbling upon them on the side of the road (My favorite place to shop!), finding new purposes for everyday items, etc.
I am most proud of the education and knowledge we bring to our market. Education is a large part of our business and what drives us to create products and materials that promote animal welfare and positive human + canine relationships. Together we can also create an impact!
