Hi. I'm Kim Spyridon, the owner of Two Tails Up dog walking and pet sitting service.
Picking the right dog care provider is an important decision and there are many pet care options out there. I am an experienced dog walker and dog care provider. After 21 years spent in advertising and insurance, and many years spent raising a family, I decided that it was time to do what I loved most and went for it. After leaving insurance I worked for three local dog daycare facilities and a veterinarian's office to acquire experience in caring for dogs, then made the decision to launch my company Two Tails Up, LLC™ serving the communities of Fort Mill, Tega Cay and Rock Hill, South Carolina.
I have owned and worked with dogs my entire life and would love the opportunity to be your furry family member's second best friend! I have experience with a wide variety of breeds and am certified in force-free, science-based dog training, so I can practice your dog's cues and refine behavior skills while spending time with your pup (for more information see "Value Added Services" on this page). I am also trained in Pet CPR, First Aid and Care through Pet Tech. This training has given me the knowledge and skills to care for an injured or sick animal and provides my clients the added sense of security knowing they have left their dog in the hands of a professional, caring and first aid trained pet care provider.
Finally, Two Tails Up, LLC™ is a Better Business Bureau Accredited Business and a proud member of Pet Sitters International and The Pet Professional Guild. Established in 1994, Pet Sitters International is the world’s largest educational association for professional pet sitters. The Pet Professional Guild is a membership organization representing pet industry professionals who are committed to positive reinforcement, force-free training and pet care. As a Pet Professional Guild member, we understand force-free to mean that No Shock, No Pain, No Choke, No Fear, No Physical Force, and No Compulsion Based Methods are ever employed to train or care for a pet entrusted to our care.
Since your furry friends are not able to join you on every outing and adventure, Jenny and I would love to give them the care they need when you are unable to. Schedule a complimentary in-home Meet & Greet consultation below and let’s get acquainted!
My name is Jenny Rea and I am so excited to begin this new journey with Two Tails Up. I moved to Fort Mill, from Illinois over twelve years ago and I absolutely love it here. I am raising two boys with my husband, Marty, and I cannot keep up with how fast they are growing. Before having children, I was a Montessori teacher of young children. As my second son was in pre-school, I was fortunate enough to become a pre-school teacher here in Fort Mill for over nine years. It was the love I had for my elderly dog, Bailey, that I decided to leave my pre-school teaching position last year so that I could take care of him full time. Sadly, he passed away this September. While I really enjoyed working with young children, I realized that I could possibly focus on my other passion, which is working with animals.
I have had a true love for animals of all kinds and I have been fortunate enough to have always had an animal, or two, as part of my family. From dogs to cats, birds, hamsters and guinea pigs. To become more experienced with a variety of dogs and cats, I began volunteering in 2018 at the York County Humane Society, walking dogs, taking care of the cats and even having dogs come play in my backyard.
I am looking forward to this opportunity to be able to take care of a variety of animals when their owners are not able to. I feel that this is a privilege and I will treat it as such. Blessings to you and yours.

Our pets are entrusted to us by God.
They are special and deserving of our love and care. It has been said that a dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.
We at Two Tails Up agree!
On behalf of all pets everywhere ... read "My Solemn Vow"
It is our mission to provide the same love and care for your dog as they get from you and your family and provide peace of mind when you can’t be home to take care of their needs yourself. At Two Tails Up, we treat every dog entrusted to our care as if they were our own, and while doing so, perhaps make their behavior and manners just a little bit better!
Behavioral science research clearly shows that a dog learns more quickly and effectively when they are rewarded for good behaviors, not punished for bad ones. At Two Tails Up, we do more than just walk and care for dogs. We work with every client to create a custom personalized positive reinforcement, rewards-based / force-free behavior plan for their dog that will be followed at every visit!
