Our Story

In the fall of 2003, I brought Tuckerman home. He was 8 weeks old, and he changed my entire life.

At the time, I had a "successful" career in Corporate America. It wasn't my dream, but it was great paying, great benefits and comfortable. I never imagined how profoundly it would bother me to leave Tuckerman everyday, and go to my desk job. I couldn't take it.

And so, I launched my own business, Appalachian Tails. I had no idea what I was doing. Most everyone in my life thought I was crazy.

I was. Crazy for Tuckerman. Still am.

I'm proud to say that since then, Appalachian Tails has helped thousands of pet owners give their dogs and cats the best life possible. 

If you are already part of our story, thank you. If not, I invite you to visit us at Appalachian Tails and get the attention and service that you and your pet deserve. 

P.S. - Tuck is still with me everyday, all day. Come say hi to him!

The way small business is supposed to be. You can always find Bryan (Owner & Founder) and his dog Tuckerman at the store, happy to help in any way possible.
