About A Furry Tail Come True

A Furry Tail Come True is founded by people who love dogs – a lot! All of our staff members enjoy getting to spend all of their time with fun four-legged friends. As far as we’re concerned, this is our dream job. Seeing wagging tails and hearing happy barks make our day!


We first started A Furry Tail Come True in Hellertown, PA in 2006. Our fun dog day care and cage-free dog boarding was a hit! We had so many happy clients that we decided to open up a second location in Nazareth eight years later. We haven’t looked back since! Get to know us a little better by reading below. We look forward to getting to know you better soon, so make sure you give us a call at 610-838-6638 (Hellertown location) or 610-365-2280 (Nazareth location) today.


Trust our experienced and loving dog day care staff! Most of our staff are Certified Dog Trainers. Call today for more information!

It was only after graduating college with a degree in Elementary Education that I realized that I was meant to spend my days with dogs.


While substitute teaching, I also had a part time job working at The Center For Animal Health and Welfare, formally the Northampton County SPCA in Easton, PA. At one point in my life, my husband and I took care of eight dogs all living under one roof, for a period of four years.


I knew my love for dogs was strong at that time, but working at the SPCA only made my love grow stronger. I soon became the Canine Manager. I worked at the SPCA for almost two years, learning more than I could have ever hoped for about dog behavior and their overall wellbeing. I loved every minute of my very stressful, yet very rewarding position, and only gave it up to follow my dream of starting my own dog day care.


I look forward to loving up and playing with dogs every day for the rest of my extremely blessed life.

After receiving my Bachelor's Degree from Rutgers University, my wife and I began to fulfill our dream of owning our own dog day care. We have always loved being around dogs. I actually grew up in a dog house! While pursuing my Master's Degree, we began renovating our dog day care facility. Renovations

were painful, but they are coming along great.


I am a certified dog trainer through Animal Behavior College.  I am also a board member of the Center for Animal Health & Welfare. I am the head trainer at various shelters in PA and NJ as well. I look forward to meeting you and your dog(s).
