   The Best of Both Worlds ...

PERSONAL: I've Been in Your Shoes

  • I'm a fellow pet parent and rescue volunteer with 25+ years experience taking care of others' furry (& feathered) kiddos.

  • I was tired of flaky, shady pet sitters who used sitting as a side gig. And, I was frustrated because my dog wasn't a great fit for boarding due to separation anxiety.

  • And, I was constantly worried because I rarely got visit updates communicating how my senior dog was doing with his behavioral & medical issues.

PROFESSIONAL: I'm a Former Business Executive

  • Happy Tails LLC offers the incentives of a corporate structure with licensing, insurance, bonding.

  • I am background checked & deeply knowledgable after 25+ years of sitting and advocating for special needs animals.

  • As a former Communications Director, I've developed a sophisticated client portal which I use obsessively to provide frequent communication, updates, pictures & fun details about our playtime & TLC sessions.

SOLUTION: A Professional Surrogate Pet Mom Dedicated to Caring for Pets Special Needs & Silly Quirks

  • I choose to stay a small, boutique company because I am obsessed with quality control. 110% care is about my minimum!

  • My mission is to be the reliable, trustworthy sitter that takes care of your babies & home as if they are my own
