ABOUT US


If you are looking for a fun, safe and exciting experience for your pet, than you've come to the right place!  Owners consider their pets an important part of their family.  We pride ourselves on developing personal relationships with all of our clients and their pets.  Whether you need regular daily dog walking while you're at work, extended overnight pet-sitting while you are out of town, or a taxi ride to the vet for your four-legged friend, we understand the significance of being entrusted with the guardianship of your pet.  The Happy Paws Pet Nanny is dedicated to providing the best quality care for your pet

The Happy Paws Pet Nanny offers freedom, convenience, and a peace of mind while you are away providing customized in-home care for your pets.  In-home care lets your pets stay in their own familiar and comfortable surroundings with their normal daily routine.  Your pets will receive individual loving attention, and are exercised and played with minimizing exposure to illness and disease.  Your home maintains a "lived-in" appearance.  This reduces the risk of burglary and criminal interest in your home while you are away. 

In addition to in-home pet sitting, we offer daily visits for your pet, which may include walks, feedings, playtime, or just good company, depending on your needs.  We will go the extra distance to give you exactly what you are looking for in pet care.  We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week for you and your best friend. 

MEET THE TEAM


WHAT TO EXPECT


After you first contact us, a new client coordinator and/or owner of The Happy Paws Pet Nanny will come to your home to meet you and your pet.  There is NO consultation fee for new clients.  The consultation is an opportunity for you to get to know us, as well as review our policies and procedures.  In addition, we will complete an analysis of your pet(s) to ensure they are a good fit with the Happy Paws Staff for dog walking/pet sitting.  During the consultation, if you choose to become a client, a contract will be signed upon your understanding of the policies and procedures.

Each new client receives a free journal.  After each visit our staff leaves a "Pawgress Report" in the journal describing the activities of your pet during the visit.  As an option, you can request to receive an email or text notifications of the visit(s) at no additional cost.

With the client's permission, occasionally we take pictures of pets during their walks/sitting and post them to our Facebook page.

Client is responsible to provide:

  1. Two copies of house keys at the time of contract signing.  One copy is given to the sitter/walker and other copy is kept secured in the office as a backup to ensure consistent and reliable care.  If you don't have two copies of your keys available at the time of consultation/contract signing we can either make copies for you or come pick them up at a later time for an additional fee.
  2. Any special snacks that your pet(s) may require due to special dietary requirement.
