A unique California pet store guided by a shared passion for animals.
Established in 1998, Tails was started as a one-of-a-kind shop for local dog and cat lovers on the Central Coast to purchase food, treats, toys and other supplies. Tails is uniquely located in the heart of the historical downtown San Luis Obispo, near the iconic Bubble Gum Alley. For decades, we have helped pet owners across San Luis Obispo, Fresno, Santa Maria, and Santa Barbara County by offering excellent products and a warm welcome for their cats and dogs.
Tails' owner Shelley is an avid animal lover. She dotes upon her four dogs, Fuzzy, Harley, Shifoo, Sush and her rescue cat, Blue. Tails welcomes you to bring your pet into our store so they can partake in free treats and a drink of water, which are always available.
