Meet the Tails to GO! Staff: Charlie Moreno
Hi, my name is Charlie Moreno and I’m the owner of Tails to GO! Pet Services. Tails to GO! provides many pet related services such as animal training, behavior counseling, pet sitting, dog walking, and educational seminars at the Humane Society of El Paso, Animal Services of El Paso, local libraries, and at the homes of our clients.
Many years ago I began dedicating my time to increasing the quality of life for our pets. In 2007 I began an effort to bring adequate dog parks to El Paso, TX. Since then I have promoted local animal rescue organizations, responsible pet ownership, and been involved in rescuing animals myself independently. I began dog training in 2008 and pet sitting in 2009.
Since then I have learned a lot. I started Tails to GO! in 2014 and I have worked hard to bring humane and responsible pet care to the city at affordable prices. Our staff has completed a thorough criminal check, we are insured, bonded, and safety and security is our #1 goal.
For more information on our seminars please visit our Education Page.
I am a certified dog trainer through the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers, an Animal Behavior Consultant (NOT A BEHAVIORIST), and educator on animal behavior, communication, safety, and responsible pet ownership. I have also completed many continuing education units in Ethology (Animal Behavior), Operant & Classical Conditioning, Fear, Aggression, and Anxiety in animals, and have completed a course on Dog Emotions & Cognition from Duke University. I am also the Shelter Enrichment & Training Coordinator for the Humane Society of El Paso and the founder & Executive Director of El Paso Pets, a nonprofit organization dedicated to animal welfare by providing education and resources to pet owners and local animal rescue partners.
