To say that Far Fetched Tales' head trainer, Pamela, has a way with animals would be a major understatement. Her 30 years of experience include time spent working on a farm and showing and training horses, and her own prized corgis, Harley and Jo Dee have won seven national titles combined. Throughout her career, Pamela has helped well-meaning dogs overcome a variety of behavioral issues, from jumping and chewing to separation anxiety and poker addictions, using techniques that focus on positive reinforcement. Beyond training neighborhood pooches to sit and stay, Pamela also offers agility training for pets and owners who are interested in qualifying for competitions, as well as pet sitting and training for service and therapy dogs.

Although Sue Towler developed a steadfast work ethic during 24 years of service in the United States Air Force, it's her love of dogs that continues to bring out the best of her nature. Before opening The Barking Lot, where she and her staff of canine devotees lovingly provide dog boarding and daycare services, Sue started a home pet-sitting service and a no-kill animal shelter, both of which she still runs. At The Barking Lot, pooches frolic together on a grassy playground during playtime, monitored by the staff in case a debate about the president's dog's foreign-policy experience gets out of hand. At night, boarding pups settle into tiled suites and air-conditioned kennels.
