Happy Tails Dog Sitting

Happy Tails Dog Sitting started in 2009 as an alternative to kennels and traditional pet sitters. Samantha, the owner, brings clients’ dogs to her home for “staycations” during long away periods. In doing so, she works to ensure dogs do not get locked away and forgotten about in kennels or have to experience the long alone hours in between pet sitting visits. She boards no more than four dogs at a time, so early bookings are encouraged. Happy Tails does not restrict breeds, but dogs should be nonaggressive. Customer reviews have praised the service for sending daily texts and photos and for added touches like Tupperware containers of doggie treats that are sent home after the visit is over.
