Pack Leader

Karli is an Arizona native and loves everything East Valley offers.  She loves being part of the community and giving back where she can. She and her husband and her three kids love taking advantage of the beautiful weather whenever they can.

In addition to being one of the three owners of Wagging Tails, she is also currently working as an office administrator for another small business owner.  She does have an extensive background in dog training, starting back in 2000 helping to roll out the current program you see at another major retailer. She spent about six years running her own dog training company and being the trainer for Follow Your Heart Animal Rescue.

With the purchase of the new business, she decided to step back from dog training and fostering to focus on the new adventure but hopes to one day be able to get back into dog training and make it part of Wagging Tails.

Years in rescue left Karli with a full house of pets…a pack that includes dogs ranging from a Rottweiler to a Pomeranian… 2 cats… and many fish. They are all loved and treasured, and that’s how we treat each pet that walks through our doors at the shop.
