Cannot rave more about happy tails and Samantha! She just watched my 1.5 golden retriever Nala for almost 2 weeks while we were in Italy! I'm a helicopter mom and this was the longest I've left my baby! She uploaded so many pictures and Nala had the time of her life on her puppy vacation! She made so many new friends and had a constant smile on her face. She loved all her treatos and TLC! Samantha was kind enough to pick her up and drop her off even when we live in Dallas! I can tell Nala is missing everyone at happy tails, we will definitely use happy tails every time we travel out of town. I felt comfortable that Nala was in a safe environment and in good hands while we were so far away! Thank you!!! More...

Samantha and her family are great, our dog Scout loves going to see them! We know she is always well taken care of and loved while we are out of town. Thanks Happy Tails!

I am very protective of my dog and I am always hesitant to leave him at a kennel when I go out of town. However, after having my dog stay at happy tails I will definitely be going back there if I ever need anyone to watch my dog. Samantha is very friendly and gives the dogs all of the attention and love that their owners normally would. Almost all the kennels around here will put your dog in a cage and that's where they spend their time while you are away, but that is absolutely not the case here. In addition to the high level of care, the cost is very similar to if you were to board your dog at a kennel. More...

I would highly recommend Happy Tails. Samantha is a great home care sitting service. She is very welcoming to her pet guests. They are well taken care of. This is so comforting to know your pet is left in good hands. She provides pics and updates during your pets stay. This is my first and only go to sitter for my pet. More...

We love Happy Tails and so does our dog! We were new to town and wanted somewhere that our anxious dog would be comfortable. After just a couple trips there, she now jumps in Samantha's car & barely even says bye to us!Samantha does pickup/drop off, which is super convenient, and she sends regular updates and photos, which really helps set you at ease. Plus, our dog comes home exhausted from playing all week, which is an added bonus after a busy day of traveling. Would highly recommend for your fur babies! More...

I was devastated to leave my 6 month old french bulldog, Luna for two weeks for the first time. I didn't want to take her to a kennel, but wasn't sure what other options I had. Then I found Happy Tails Dog Sitting! Thank goodness I did! Samantha was wonderful. Luna had the luxury of romping around all day playing with new friends. While traveling I received updates from Samantha on how Luna was doing. It was clear she loves dogs and truly cares for all the pups in her care are happy and healthy while staying with her. If you're traveling or need a doggie sitter I highly recommend Happy Tails Dog Sitting! When I got home Luna slept for two days she was so tuckered out. Thank you Samantha for taking such good care of my Luna!!! More...

I absolutely ADORE Happy Tails Dog Sitting! My Shiba Inu, Whiskey, has unbelievable anxiety and has a hard time warming up to people - but definitely not to Samantha! I've had the pleasure of boarding Whiskey with her several times now, and each time has been just amazing as the last. Samantha makes sure to give the dogs staying with her ample attention and you can tell based on the way Whiskey runs up to her and greets her. In fact, he knows her car now and knows that when he sees it that it's time to hang out with his friends. I have honestly never seen Whiskey warm up so much to anyone that wasn't immediate family. And you can tell because Samantha is AMAZING about communicating regularly with updates and pictures. She is my go-to person and I don't think I'll ever go anywhere else. In fact, I've already booked Whiskey another stay with at the end of this month. Amazing, amazing, amazing service! More...

Beau really enjoyed her stay with Samantha and Preston. I was impressed that Samantha was thorough in ensuring Beau was up to date with all her vaccinations. She gives a questionnaire that asks her eating and sleeping habits as well as her demeanor around other dogs of all sizes. I got text updates and pics. I felt really secure knowing Beau wasn't locked up in a kennel with the potential to get sad or sick. Really happy with happy tails. Thank you! More...

I've been meaning to post a glowing review for Happy Tails Dog Sitting on Yelp for quite some time. Samantha and Norm are the BEST. She treats your dog as if he was her own and sends you daily updates (via email or text) with pictures, reassuring you that your dog is in great hands and doing well. Most recently, my dog Prince stayed with her for a week - the longest he's been away from home - and his birthday fell during that stay. She baked him the most adorable doggie cake for me to take home to celebrate when I got back, and also got him a Prince crown cookie with his name on it and sent me pics of him in a party hat! He also got a solo walk to PetSmart with Norm to pick his own toy, and an egg for breakfast - one of his favorite foods to eat! I am always blown away by how caring and loving they are and it makes me feel so much better if and when I have to travel, knowing that Prince is in good hands!I adopted him when he was 4 years old, and he had been owner surrendered at a shelter so the thought of boarding him at a kennel just made me so upset. I found her on Yelp and Prince has stayed with her 3 times so far, and I can't say enough great things about Samantha and Norm. 100% recommend them to anyone who wants a home away from home for their dog while they're away.She even checks in periodically, especially right after the stay, to check in on my pup and make sure he's doing well! And the first few visits, she even provided a wonderful take home bag with toys and homemade treats for Prince. So incredibly sweet and well priced. And much better than the options I've seen on DogVacay, which can be $50-75/night for minimal supervision! I'll be back the next time I go out of town! More...

Wow!!  I was SO nervous about leaving my two babies because family has always been able to take them in when I travel.  I finally decided to bite the bullet and use someone closer to home and thought it will be good for them to be around other dogs.  Samantha is awesome and I cannot describe the sense of relief I felt after the first photos and txt she sent the first day letting me know how all was going.  I have a 15 and 5 year old chihuahua. My 15 yr old is almost blind and I was so apprehensive about leaving her with someone that didn't know her but Samantha reassured me and she was so right!!I know it's hard to leave your babies but trust me, this will be the most positive experience you can ask for.  I loved the daily photos and updates and will be bringing my sweet girls back again.

A home away from home for my little pup....Samantha makes it as simple and stress-free as possible to leave Pippin when I need to travel. The email updates with photos are adorable and I swear my dog is smiling in them. My pup is definitely a homebody who prefers blankets and couches so the attention she gets at Happy Tails is amazing and she always comes back tired from playing all day instead of being cooped up in a cage. Rest assured that your fur-kid is having more fun than you are while you're on vacation :) Samantha takes great care of the dogs in her care, Pippin will be back! More...

Samantha and her husband have watched my toy poodle, Sgt. Pepper, 3 times now and it has made a huge difference in our lives! Sgt. Pepper gets excited to come here and is so happy whenever I pick him up at the end of a stay. I picked him up last night after being gone for an entire week and he was in the best mood! At Happy Tails, he gets to play ALL DAY with really fun, sweet dogs. When he's not playing, he likes to sit on people's shoulders and Samantha carries him around like that and cuddles with him. He also likes to sleep under people's beds and they let him do that at Happy Tails. He is such a happier pup when I bring him here for boarding. Also, Samantha sends a tupperware of homemade treats home with us every time and they are so cute! I also receive frequent updates with pictures. I HIGHLY recommend Happy Tails. More...

I just picked up my dog yesterday after having him stay with Samantha for 5 days over the Thanksgiving holiday. I could not be happier with Happy Tails Dog Sitting. She sent me email updates every other day with pictures. My dog looked so happy in them!! He had so much fun playing with the other dogs. It was a tad expensive bc I booked during the holidays. Normally its $30/night, but during the holidays it goes up to $45/night. However I totally think it was worth every penny I paid! Your dog will enjoy this way more than being stuck in a kennel... yes they do schedule play times for them at kennels but with Happy Tails, your dog can be around other dogs and great people 24/7. You can pay extra to get your dog bathed right before you pick him up. As an added bonus when I went to pick my dog up, she gave me some homemade dog treats she made... and these were some fancy treats!! They looked like actual cookies and cupcakes. She also sent Brody home with a humungous bone and a Christmas card. So nice!! More...

Keiko loved Happy Tails dog sitting.  It was nice not having to worry about him while on vacation.  They even made homemade doggie treats, and sent some home with Keiko at the end of the stay.  We definitely recommend Samantha! More...

We left our dog, Guster, with Samantha for four nights recently and were thrilled with the care she gave him. Gus is a shelter dog with some pretty extreme anxiety so we were very nervous to board him for the first time. In the end we had nothing to worry about. She was extremely thorough up front, making sure that he was up to date on all shots and that she understood his specific needs. She also gave me information on the other dogs who would be there the same weekend so we could decide if we thought he would do well with them. When the time came, we dropped him off and he did so well. We were concerned that he might hide in a corner the whole time but he really socialized with her and the other dogs. She e-mailed us detailed updates and even sent a video of him playing with the other dogs (which he doesn't do much of!) so we didn't worry about him while we were away. When we picked him up, she let us hang around to see him play in the yard and sent us home with some great information and homemade treats.If you want to make sure your dog gets excellent, one-on-one attention when you're gone, I highly recommend Happy Tails Dog Sitting.

I left my pug Stewie alone for the first time with Samantha.  I was so nervous since he'd spent two years by my side and was now going to be without me and around other dogs for over 2 weeks.  But from the moment I stepped into Samantha's home I knew everything would be alright.  She absolutely loves dogs.  On my first visit she had about 6-7 dogs (which is near the maximum she ever keeps) and they were all having a blast!  She sent me pictures and updates of Stewie every few days (which kept me sane) and I could see in the pictures he was having a great time as well.  In fact, I think he had so much fun there that I felt bad taking him away back to my single-dog home.  Also, since I was new to Dallas she helped me with all the dog park and vet info I needed, and she was really accommodating since I had to tack on 2 more days of boarding at the last minute.  I really appreciated that she's flexible with pickup times as well, since I got to see my little guy a few hours sooner than I anticipated.  Her prices are more than fair, and most importantly you'll know your dog is in great hands.  I can't recommend her enough.

Samantha took care of my golden retriever for three days while I was out of town on a business trip. She was extremely professional in confirming drop off and pick up times which made for a very organized experience. She sent me daily updates about how my pup was doing as well as pictures of him playing with the other dogs. This is way better than the kennels that board dogs because he gets to play with other dogs all day long (at no extra charge) and not be locked away in a room for 18 hours a day. I highly recommend Samantha and plan to use her services again. More...


I love not only meeting a variety of different dogs but also love being able to provide a more personal touch. We are constantly going and going each day preoccupied by work and errands and it all being dast paced. I like to be able to get to you my human and doggy clients on a personal level and help out anyway I can. Happy Tails is like sending your pup to doggy disneyland but operated by your best friend! Dogs are pack animals and meant to be around other dogs and people, not locled in a cage. I am fortunate to be doing what I love and providing not ony your pups by you also a peice of mind while on vacation.

I started Happy Tails Dog Sitting in the early summer of 2009 while attending veterinarian school, as a alternative to a kennel environment. I wanted other dog lovers who don't just think of their dog as "the dog" but as a member of their family, to have a place to leave Fido while going away on vacation or a work trip. We all know how stressful it can be to leave your dog behind while going on vacation, and for some owners they can't enjoy their vacation with such worry. I remember leaving my boxer at kennel and having him stare at me as I walked away, wondering if I'd ever come back. It was heartbreaking!

With that in mind I started Happy Tails Dog Sitting where bringing your dog to my home they are made part of the family. Getting individual affection and love. I have a lot of experience with dogs. At a commercial kennel dogs are subject to disease, trama, no individual attention and locked in a kennel for most of the day. Please don't subject your dog to that. With sitters whom come to your home and visit two or three times a day for 30mins your dog is still alone for 22.5hrs a day.
You will have peace of mind with updates via email of how your pup is doing, knowing they are having their own "Staycation" while at my home.

I provide a safe, fun, and happy place for your dog to stay time and time again. I want your dog to go home tired, clean, and better behaved than before you went out of town. A tired dog is a good dog. You will be able to leave your dog with me guilt free, knowing that they will be taken care of as a member of our family

Clients should choose me due to my experience in caring for dogs on a professional level (since 2009) and also because kf my experience in the veterinary field. I know a lot about dogs and also love providing a safe comfortable home awhile your away.
