Happy Trails Professional Pet Sitting & Equine Services LLC is owned and operated by Stephanie Brown, who lives with her husband and two boys in Long Valley, NJ. Stephanie meets all potential clients prior to service and assigns them to the PURRfect pet care team member based on their needs.
Stephanie’s animal experience is broad and varied, based not only on her background as a Veterinary Technician in both large and small animal practices for over ten years, but also by her personal exposure to raising and pampering a variety of pets which included dogs, horses, guinea pigs, birds and even sheep and goats!
Happy Trails LLC began during Stephanie's college days as a way to help family and friends when they went away for work or vacation, In the beginning, Happy Trails LLC was mainly focused on horse care and professional riding, ensuring that client's horses were kept in top condition. At the same time Stephanie was managing a small horse farm in Far Hills NJ, she was employed at a renown equine medical facility. Working in veterinary medicine soon became a passion and it furthered her desire to offer the best care for her own pet-sitting clients. Through the years, she was fortunate to work for some of the best veterinarians in NJ, and then began providing small animal care in her own business. Some of these services included post-surgical cases as well as basic puppy visits, but then expanded to offering daily dog walks to clients who worked long hours and felt guilty leaving their furry family member home in a crate all day.
Happy Trails LLC is now celebrating 17 years of service to the animal-loving community! The company is fully insured by Business Insurers of The Carolina’s

Steph and Happy Trails are fantastic! They have so much experience and are extremely professional. Highly recommended!
I love this team of professional pet sitters. They are always reliable and they give such good care of my pets. I love how easy it is to schedule, pay and even get pics and a report of my pets all in one place. The best!
Steph and her team are the best. She started walking my dog when she was a puppy - she maintained my standards of loose leash walking when we were training, and always goes above and beyond. She leaves a detailed report , brings in the trash can or packages for us (unnecessarily), and we love getting a picture of our happy girl during the work day! More...
Stephanie and her team are wonderful! They watch our senior dog and guinea pigs when we are away, and now also cut their nails! !! They are prompt, responsive, respectful and friendly. We have had nothing but positive experiences. We highly recommend Happy Trails! More...
Stephanie, Monica, Nicole, and the entire Happy Trails team are like an extension of our family. They take such wonderful care of our 10 year old puppy, keeping her healthy and happy while we work and go to school, I don’t know what we would do without them.
Simply the best! They treat your pets like their own. Complete peace of mind when we are away. When we come home, the pets have barely missed us. Can’t say enough great things!!!
We moved to NJ a year ago. After always having family watch our pets, I was nervous to have to depend on a pet service. The minute I met Stephanie and Nicole my mind was at ease. They send daily updates with pictures and always leave a treat on the last day for our pets to enjoy. We have now use them at least 4 times and have never been happier. More...
Our pets had a wonderful time with Nicole and Stephanie from Happy Trails... they did an outstanding job looking after our fur-babies. .. with love and responsibility. We enjoyed the pics of our pets every day and the report from every visit. So we could spend a great vacation and so much more quality time with our family... More...
A very easy, positive experience. I would always recommend Stephanie and her staff always.
It is the absolute perfect way to treat your pet. My pet loved her sooooooo much my dog Tiney did not want her to leave.
We are so happy to have found Happy Trails. Stephanie and Nicole are amazing at always finding time to fit us in when we make last minute plans.
And I know our pets are happy to see them by the pictures they send while we’re away. I couldn’t ask for better pet sitters!
Oh! And they trim my dogs nails!!! More...
Very professional and very reliable! These guys know what they're doing and my dog absolutely LOVED them when he met Stephanie and Shelby. They take great care of our pets. I know they're in good hands when we are away! More...
Love Happy Trails. They are so reliable and great to work with. I love the email messages they provide when they visit your pets (and pics). It’s great to get the little progress report. I highly recommend. More...
Best pet sitter in NJ!! Has never let me down. Wouldn’t leave my fur baby with anyone else. Hard to find people you can trust and who truly care for your pet. Love Happy Trails!!
Happy Trails is wonderful. I love their website and how easy it is to schedule a walker for my Phoebe. They send photos after each walk, which are always so wonderful when you are having a tough day at work.
