Our Story

Tailchasers Pet Care was established in 2004 by Matt and Randa Lyn Clark.  Tailchasers is a family owned business established in March 2004 to help pet parents discover, develop, and nurture the bond with their pets.  We understand pet owners have to be away from home for work or travel, so Tailchasers created a service to provide the same nurturing environment to pets while their owners are away.

We have recently become the owners of Barrington Pet Resort and are thrilled with the opportunity to provide a trusted and loving facility to care for our clients pets.


Our Mission

to maintain a nurturing home environment for pets while their owners are away for work or travel and to strengthen the bond between them through constant professional care, training and behavior modification.

 Chasing a better world, one tail at a time


Our Training Belief

At Tailchasers, our training is based on helping dogs increase the frequency of desirable behaviors and decrease the undesirable behaviors by rewarding the behaviors we want to see and finding alternate behaviors for the behaviors we want to eliminate.  We specialize in behavior problems and work with many local rescues to help dogs become more adoptable.
