Proudly Serving Pet Wants To Our Tailchasers Family!

Pet Wants is nutritious pet food made with the best ingredients possible and delivered to your doorstep.

No corn, wheat, soy, fillers or bi-product are used in the production of this healthy pet food.

We were drawn to Pet Wants because of the freshness. We had been looking for a fresher option to avoid the toxins and loss of nutritional value of traditional pet food distribution, both for our own pets and for the pets we care for at Tailchasers Pet Care and Barrington Pet Resort, and Pet Wants was absolutely the right choice.

Check out our online selection of healthy food and treats and find something your best friend will love.

Have you ever wondered what it is like to be a dog during Group Playtime at Barrington Pet Resort?

Here is a video to show just how much fun dogs have with a nice large area to run (even in winter weather).

Some Happy Clients


I have to say we are super happy with your service. Kim has been awesome and even brought in garbage can and closed our blinds while we were gone. Most importantly she took incredible care of Fritz!! We’d definitely recommend you to others and have already mentioned your company to a neighbor.

Thanks for everything and being flexible with our non-standard schedules!!


I wanted to take a moment to thank your team for the continually phenomenal care Rudy has received over the last year and change.  Russel has done an amazing job, and Rudy will definitely miss her afternoon walks with him!


I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for taking such good care of Penny and Peanut and for always being flexible. I will continue to recommend your services whenever I get a chance.


Please thank Janet for taking such good care of my kitty. I am grateful for her communications each time as well. So good to have your service as my back up. I will be sure to refer my friends and neighbors in the area should they need you.


This is one of the best companies I’ve ever found. Matt and Randa are extremely professional and know dogs. For the last five months, I have had a daily dog walker come and spend time with my two dogs. I haven’t had a single issue with doors being left unlocked or the dogs not being treated well. The systems they have in place are well-thought out and they deliver on their promises. Great company.


Janet did a wonderful job with our cats.  They’re both very shy, but one of our very shy cats, Luke, came out for her a number of times.  She did wonderful work.  Thanks so much!


Thank you for taking such good care of our pets! We were so pleased with the level of service received and loved the pictures and interactive walking map 🙂

 Thank you Alyssa for being so attentive to our special little friends! We will definitely be using Pet Heroes in the future and will happily recommend this service to our friends.


As always, we adore Allison and Tailchasers! You are all the absolute best and we tell everyone we know about you! Thanks so much!! 


Just wanted to say thank you to Timothy for taking good care of Pixel and Selene!  We appreciated getting the photos and updates every day 🙂


Ravi has been fantastic! Kingston has been acting like a whole new dog since he started getting walked mid-day.


I just wanted to let you know how happy we are with Tailchasers! We love the updates from Mr. Burke – he is so witty and does a great job relaying how the dogs are as well as what he’s done with them! It is so nice knowing they are in great hands. Also, thank you again for accommodating our last minute change in travel plans!


We also wanted to say that Alisha is absolutely wonderful. We are very happy that she is Ally’s dogwalker.

We just wanted to say thank  you so much for the service that you provide.  Eric was the petsitter during our recent visit with friends.  He did such a wonderful job!  He must have some really special cat magic; both of our cats are very shy and do not typically come out for strangers.  Luke hid on the first visit, but then consistently came out to visit with Eric, and Issac came out occasionally.  We were so happy about that!  We love the new check-in system, and enjoyed seeing pictures of the kitties.

~Melanie & Chuck

Thank you also for your continued flexibility. I have been singing your praises to anyone that I know in the area with pets, especially commenting about how easy you are to work with and how you will also try to accommodate last minute changes!


Please tell Alisha how appreciative we are of the loving care she provided to our pets while we were away. We were warmly greeted by Ilsa and Luci while Terror is blissfully sleeping in a sunny spot. 


Thanks again for all you guys do! We love Tailchasers and Jon is great!
