Welcome to Tall Tails Training & Boarding

We are committed to enhancing people’s relationships with their pets through communication and understanding of the unique nature of the companion animal we call “dog”.

Our mission has been to raise the quality and kindness in training and create deeper relationships with our dogs through education.


Our training philosophy emphasizes an education for both dog and human that will help build a loving relationship.


Nestled on the beautiful 58 acres of Sunset Farm, we offer loving, professional boarding care for dogs, cats and various small animals.


Give your pup a day full of fun while you're at work, with a variety of activities and their own personal Games Director!

Our Story

Tall Tails Training was conceptualized by Robyn Achey-Zarnas & Bill Gorton in 1992. We began our education process, developed our philosophy and programs and formally opened in 1995.

Our goal is to help people learn to have quality relationships with their dogs beyond the idea of “old school” obedience training.

Since then, we have educated people and have trained and rehabilitated thousands of dogs across 9 states and 3 continents.
