At Tails of Success we believe that dogs are members of the family and give you the tools you need to make sure that your dog is the best family member he can be!
Daycare, classes, and private behavior sessions meet your dog's needs so that he can be the polite and well-behaved companion you have dreamed of.
We take a gentle, holistic approach in everything we do, and highly value continuing education, so you can rest assured that your dog is in safe and skilled hands with us.
At Tails of Success, we create happy dogs and happy people!
I have always had an insatiable thirst for knowledge, and believe that continuing education and staying current on research and updates in the field of canine behavior is critical. Since my first job as a dog trainer, I have avidly studied canine behavior and opened Tails of Success in 2008. I am a certified trainer, with many, many hours of continuing education, and experienced in working with dogs of all breeds and temperaments. I love helping families at their wits end find solutions to their dog's behavior problems and restore peace to the household.
At Tails of Success, we believe in giving back to our community, and so we work closely with many area rescues to provide free and low-cost training options for dogs in need.
We devote several hours each week to providing services for foster and rescue dogs, including things like:
- behavioral and placement assessments
- hosting adoption events
- board and train for severe cases
- behavior training and seminars for shelter staff, foster parents, & volunteers
- exclusive classes for foster dogs
If you are interested in setting up a training relationship with your shelter or rescue group, please contact Cameo at:

I first came to Tails of Success as a client in 2011 and began volunteering as an assistant soon after. Having an impulsive pup of my own, I love to help others understand and reel in their excitable dogs. In 2014, I joined the apprenticeship program at Tails of Success and began teaching on a regular basis. Today, I am a lead trainer for Real Life Training classes, as well as our Nervous Nellie behavior class, and am passionate about teaching humans the fastest way to get their dog on track. A graduate of RIT, I continue to add to my education in the science of dog training by attending seminars and peer groups.
I have had a lifelong connection with animals and originally began my college career with sights on a degree in veterinary medicine. I have enduring interests including natural health and nutrition, as well as behavior. Today, my strongest passion is behavior and I am working towards a Masters degree in Animal Learning. I am also one of only a handful of people in NYS to have earned the CBCC (Certified Behavior Consultant, Canine), and am a Certified Trick Dog Instructor. I also am an AKC CGC/S.T.A.R. Puppy Evaluator and APDT C.L.A.S.S. Evaluator.
While helping families of all shapes and sizes to find the best fitting solutions to their dog’s behavioral problems, my personal behavioral interests include canine adolescents, and dogs experiencing impulsivity and issues with self-control. I also have a strong interest in feline behavior and the multi-species household, and spent a summer training goats to selectively graze on only invasive species, leaving native plants alone.
