Ivy Bergquist started Tandem Tails in 2017 under the original name Ivy's Pet Re-Treat. Ivy created the business as a way to fill her time after both her children left for college. Ivy loves animals of all kinds but has the most experience with dogs and cats. She attended the University of Massachusetts, Amherst studying as a Pre-Vet student and is back to school finishing her masters in Public Health. Her day job is at the University of New England but would ideally make Tandem Tails her full-time job. Although Ivy didn't start her business till 2017 she has had many years of experience of pet sitting and boarding animals prior. Ivy goes above and beyond what most pet sitters and dog walkers do. When dealing with particularly skittish animals, Ivy will take the extra time it takes meeting the animal multiple times until the animal feels comfortable.
Tandem Tails is a family owned business that aims to give each client an experience they will remember.
