Meet The Team

Bain "Pop" Cobb


At a young age, Pop came to NJ from North Carolina looking for work and began to groom and show dogs. He started Tarheel Kennels, which would later become Tarheel Total Pet Care, and worked until the 1970s before retiring. To this day, Pop is an inspiration to the facility!

Steve & Marge Cobb
