About Barks & Tails

Woof! There are many times I wish I spoke dog and several times I think I do! I’m not a vet or animal behavior expert – just a passionate pet parent who shares information on this blog. My degree in journalism and my nose for news leads me to research facts for posts and my many years in public relations leads to the storytelling of day-to-day experiences.

Barks and Tails is a lifestyle blog focusing on pet trends and living a fulfilling life with your pup.

All words, photos and videos come from me or our wonderful video editor and pup dad, Ron. Please feel free to share using the share buttons on each page.

Lacey, a treeing walker coonhound, and Clayton, a beagle, are rescue adoptees who enjoy hiking, pet-friendly travel and squeaky toys. Through their stories we hope you laugh, smile and learn something along the way.
