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.
