Experienced Dog Boarder and Walker
Morgan Anderson loves Beautiful British Columbia, you are sure to find her outside on any given day year round. Morgan grew up in Smithers and after a few years in southern BC, moved back in 2017 with her husband Tyler Anderson. Her family has lived in the Bulkley Valley for the last 100 years! Her husband Tyler is from Salt Spring Island BC and will often hike and explore alongside her, including occasionally staying with her during overnight Pet Sits.
She is an explorer, gardener and animal lover. One of her favourite pastimes is foraging for berries, particularly wild blueberries. The Anderson’s recently bought a full size school bus and have renovated it into a tiny home. She is minimalistic and takes pride in her home. She often rescues kittens and rehomes them to loving families here in Smithers. She has three raw fed cats of her own. Also on the pet list is a 5 year old mustang mare named Sage from the Oliver/ Osoyoos Native Band, meat rabbits and 6 chickens. She has been training Sage on her own for the past 3 years, with the help of Tyler. For the past 15 years she has operated Tails and Trails walking dogs, boarding and house sitting. Taking her business with her on her travels, she has met a large quantity of very individual dogs. She has expanded the type of animals available for care, and is constantly seeking out new information to learn and develop her experience. Morgan is in tune with animal behaviour and is excellent at communicating with animals of all sorts. She bonds quickly to new dogs, and has a knack for strong breeds.

Morgan and her husband Tyler live a minimalistic lifestyle on 640+ acres on W Diamond Ranch in Telkwa. This means her tiny home cannot house giant breeds. She has 3 cats, therefore any dogs must be good with cats. She also lives on a communal property, so all dogs must be good with other dogs, humans and wildlife.
Another requirement for boarding with Morgan is your dog must be crate trained, this is due to the small home she has and her 3 cats.
50% non refundable deposit required upon booking.

We were extremely lucky to get put in touch with Morgan fairly soon after we moved to Smithers. Our Rotti rescue isn't a huge fan of people and suffers quite a bit of anxiety in unfamiliar situations. We don't like to bring him with us on trips away from home because it causes him too much anxiety. Before we met Morgan we tried some other people and it just wasn't the right fit. Riggsy absolutely adores Morgan, and their adventures. Morgan is the only person we trust to leave Riggsy with and she's been such a life saver for our family - between daily adventures, house/pet sitting and she even helped us out in a couple of emergency situations and really went above and beyond. She's been available for us on short notice more than once and is just generally a great person to know if you've got a pup that needs someone patient and experienced with large breeds with psychological issues. She also puts on a brave face and sleeps under the same roof as our psycho cat when she's house/pet sitting and everyone made it out alive - 10/10 would recommend Morgan for both dog walking adventures and pet sitting. If I wasn't so happy that Riggsy found someone he loves to be with when he's not with us and that I trust with him- I would probably be jealous of how excited he gets when she comes to see him.
Morgan is so awesome with our fur babies. She knows what to do, is reliable and so kind and reasonable. We highly recommend!!
We've had great experience using Morgan for dog walking. She handles the dogs very professionally and really cares for the dogs. AND, the dogs love her too! We'd highly recommend her for your dogs.
Morgan was available and reliable! She is very confident with dogs and our puppies loved her! It is evident that she loves working with animals..... I know it is challenging to walk your dogs as much as they need. I recommend her as a great supplement for this on a regular basis. I will definitely be requesting her services again!
Morgan walks our dog regularly and recently watched her for 10 days while we were away on vacation. She did an excellent job and our dog absolutely loves her. We really trust Morgan's ability, and she treats our girl the best. I would highly recommend Morgan for anyone who needs someone they can rely on and trust to give your pet the best care.
Morgan took our dog Gilly for many walks while living here on Salt Spring Island. Gilly always came home happy and exercised. Morgan also was our trusted go to for overnight care. I would highly recommend Morgan for your pet walking needs.
