Our story starts in Hawaii, where my brother Logan and I lived and grew up together for 14 years. While there, we learned what it means to be a part of a culture where everyone is your family no matter blood. Everyone older than you is an Auntie or Uncle. We learned that this ohana of ours would be there for us and help us no matter what.
From Hawaii we moved to Colorado where we spent a few years before I moved to Tennessee and Logan to California. While he was finishing up school, I had gotten married and started a family. Eventually the rest of our family moved to Tennessee too. While there I started working and then managing a dog boarding daycare facility. Logan also came to join the team and that is the begining of our working duo. We both fell in love with working with dogs. We saw how special it was to bond with the regulars who came in, to be a part of their everyday lives. Watching the puppies grow up and their personalities come out was one of the better parts! The best part of the day was seeing how excited dogs were coming in to see us and their friends!
Over the next couple of years, I started dreaming of having my own place. Something that my own kids could grow up with and be a part of. My own place where I could spoil dogs while they got to have a safe and fun environment to make new bffs.So 3 years ago I convinced the whole family into moving to Gulf Shores. We haven't looked back and all decided it was the best choice we've made! In August 2022, the dream came true. Between Logan and I, we agreed that the ohana lifestyle that we grew up with was exactly what we wanted Tropical Tails to be. Now here we are happy to share it with you!
