Group HikesFontaine Chow, Owner

Previously an IT professional, Fontaine is no stranger to the demands of corporate life coupled with pet ownership. Having had pets all her life, it took Leah, a foster dog with reactivity issues to start Fontaine down the path of working with special needs dogs. As she came to the realization that her passion lay in helping pets and their guardians achieve a better quality of life; exercise and stimulation for the pets and less pressure for the pet guardians, Fontaine left corporate life to found Happy Tails Urban Adventures. Her approach focuses on reward and science based training and positive reinforcement methodologies. She has built, and continues to build, her knowledge and skills through accredited education, industry seminars and professional development. Her greatest satisfaction lies in being able to provide beloved pets and their parents with the reprieve they both need in order that they can better enjoy their time together.
