Hi! I'm Tara Geisel, the owner of Shore Puppy Walks and a true dog whisperer. With over 29 years of experience as a teacher with a Master's Degree in teaching, I know a thing or two about how to handle even the most rambunctious of pups.
My love for animals extends beyond just dogs - my daughter and I ran a summer horse camp, where we would spend endless hours in the barn and ring spreading our love of horses.
These days, I have traded my planning book and riding boots for a fanny pack and leash, and I couldn't be happier. At Shore Puppy Walks, I treat each and every dog as if they were my own babies - giving them all the love, attention, and care they deserve.
I am so passionate about working with dogs that I retired early from teaching to dedicate all of my time and energy to Shore Puppy Walks. You will be hard-pressed to find someone who loves her job more. I look forward to working with you, loving and caring for your pets, and showing you what makes Shore Puppy Walks so special.
