Tail Waggin’ Adventures is a collaboration between Renee Piper & Susie Gormsen. They envisioned a fun, stimulating, and safe environment for dogs while their owners are away. They created Tail Waggin’ Adventures out of the royal blue building, just north of Terre View Drive on State Highway 27. Doors opened in May 2017 and hit the ground running offering daycare, boarding, limited grooming, and training classes!
