Michele Sarver

Michele Sarver

Owner & Founder

Totally Tails Pet Care Services is owned and operated by Michele Sarver of Camano Island, WA. After retiring from a career working for a major airline she founded the business in 2013. She currently lives with her husband, Pat, and their beautiful Snowshoe Siamese cat named Sierra. Animals have always been a part of her life, bringing lots of joy and adventure, she could never imagine being without them.

While not required, she went ahead and became a NAPPS Certified Professional Pet Sitter. This along with her passion for animals and a desire to provide her clients with options when it came to the care of their pets helps her to exceed your expectations in pet care. Knowing it was best for a pet to stay in their own home and being stress free, her main goal is for all pets to be happy, healthy, loved, and to have fun.




Pat has grown up with pets all his life and finds comfort in their company. He enjoys being outdoors walking and playing with dogs as well as spending quiet moments indoors snuggling with a cat in his lap. His experience includes breeding and raising Chocolate Labs and German Short Hair’s along with rescuing cats. Pat looks forward to meeting your furry family member and would be honored to be trusted with their care while you’re away.



Dog Trainer

For over 20 years, Shanlora has been training dogs with 9 of those years owning her own dog training business. She has trained dogs of all ages and breeds teaching Basic Manners, Obedience, Behavior Modification, Search and Rescue, Tracking, and Schutzhund.

Throughout her dog training adventures, she has learned many things. All dogs have unique personalities but they have one thing in common. They speak the same language.

She uses a balanced approach with lots of praise, treats, and motivation. Her goal is to help you as a dog owner to speak their language, train your dog to accomplish anything, and enjoy a stronger relationship with your dog. She believes every dog is capable of achieving great things!
