I have been in business 20 years, so I can provide many references! Playgroups and Boarding is my primary business and offer grooming as well. Boarding is an a home enviroment. small animal care such as cats birds etc I have someone that goes to your home to do visits when you are out of town. I attented school for animal care and can manage pill intake insulin bandage changes etc.
Let me just start off by saying, yes, my hound is spoiled. Are you over it, and can handle the fact that there are dogs who go to play groups while their owners are earning the money to pay for it? If so, read on. If not, go find another review to entertain yourself with!Christine, owner of Happy Tails, has taken care of B for the better part of the last year. He goes to "play group" twice a week, to stay well-socialized with other pooches, and to get him out of my hair so that I can do my grocery shopping and whatnot. B also stays overnight with her when I'm vacationing or away for business, for what amounts to about one week out of every two months.So far, my experience with Happy Tails has largely been great. Christine and her employees reliably arrive to pick up and drop off Bentley, and he seems to have fun there. Christine is really in-tune with the dogs, I think, and definitely seems to have their best interests at heart. She's great about feeding whatever foods and treats you supply for your dog (in case, like mine, yours has a sensitive tummy and shouldn't eat just anything), and administering medicines and supplements. She brushes B while he's staying with her too, so he routinely comes back to me looking better than when he went!Christine always has a handful of dogs living with her, and so when B goes to stay for overnights, he's integrated into her pack. Mostly the pack is stable (not too many transient dogs coming and going), and so he's familiar with them, and they with him, and it seems to do him good to learn how to not be a spoiled only-dog, if only for a week.I have to admit, B can be a handful. He's one of those dogs who "has issues." What's truly awesome is that Christine and the Happy Tails folks take this in stride, and work with (and sometimes around) him on it. The occasional growly behavior or scuffle isn't thought of as a cause for hysteria, and is calmly dealt with. I know other folks who have had dogs with similar behavioral problems summarily kicked out of their daycare or boarding places, and am so thankful that Christine has a more flexible policy. I do get the sense that if a dog had truly dangerous aggression problems, and were a threat to the other animals, her, or her staff, she'd deal with it appropriately, too.One thing to back up that supposition: Christine does not insist that you sign a release absolving her of responsibility for your dog's health and welfare. You'd be shocked by how many doggie daycares I interviewed in the Boston area that did just that (with gruesome legalese stating that they're absolutely not responsible if your dog dies in their care). Also, how many of these places that do boarding actually leave the dogs unattended ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT. Once they're put in cages and the lights are out, the people all go home. Not with Christine! The dogs sleep on beds and cushions, cage-free, in her home.OK, at this point, if you're still reading, you're going to wonder why I'm giving Happy Tails four stars instead of five. Just a couple of relatively minor things: 1) B once came home from an overnight stay with a very minor bite wound to his ear, which went unnoticed and so unreported to me; 2) Christine isn't great about answering her phone, and never ever responds to emails. Once you learn her communication style though, it's really no big deal. I know she's getting the emails (which I send to book overnights for Bentley), and I also know she'd call me back were it urgent.

Happy Paws Playhouse has been an idea in my mind for many years and now has finally come to a beginning! At the start of 2022, and after 20 years, my relationship with the medical field came to a bittersweet end. I certainly could have continued in the field but knew that I was given an opportunity to get back to my true passion… animals and nature, even the spiders I come across get a warm welcome.

I work from home and would love to utilize my lunch breaks to care for dogs in the area. The past year I have been dog boarding on Rover and have had a great amount of dogs from all sizes, ages and breeds stay with me.
Sidney Wood went out with Tina yesterday on her walk. What an amazing job she did! She left a great note for us and I don’t know that anyone has ever taken such care to clean Sidney off before (she likes mud, and it was raining yesterday so I can only imagine how bad it was). Anyways, just wanted to pass along the feedback on Tina. My sister was in the house when she picked Sidney up and was also really impressed with the service.
I found Jeffrey on Yelp (thank you others for writing such good reviews) and my girl, Chanel fell in love with him at first sight! He has walked our lab-pit mix for about 2 months and he has dog sat for us as well. I love that I receive emails everyday with pics or videos-being new to Boston, I find the videos very entertaining with Jeffrey giving the history of the neighborhood they are in and to see the power of pack working..all pups walk in one rhythm which is fun to watch! He also takes really good pictures of the pups. He is really passionate about dogs and hasn't missed any day-even when it's bitter cold outside..He has been really good with Chanel and I was very sad to move out of the neighborhood. I am still in the process of trying to convince Jeffrey to expand to my new hood.
I am an experienced pet-sitter and walker who loves all animals, especially dogs and cats. Most recently I worked as a livestock farmer taking care of sheep, goats, and chickens.

When I was growing up in the suburbs outside of Boston, I become very accustomed to caring for animals. My family fostered them my whole life and I spent a lot of time volunteering at the Northeast Animal Shelter. Our home was a revolving door for pregnant, sick or stray cats and dogs that needed care or a transitional home. Many of my permanent family members were pets, including a variety of terriers, guinea pigs, frogs and even two rats, appropriately named Ratchel and Ratbecca. I started my first pet service called Joels Pet Care when I was 10 and would walk the local neighborhood pets.
Fast forward to 2013, I had just moved into Boston, got my own place, completed my Masters in Finance and settled into a career with a major investment firm. Finally, I could get a dog of my own! Chompers, my Pittie was my first dog, Milo an Australian Cattle Dog was my second. Next, I needed a dog walker to take care of my pups because my partner and I worked very long hours!
After tracking down the top local services, I started calling around to find the right fit. To my surprise, I was not able to connect with anybody... I couldn't even leave a voicemail because the business's voicemail boxes were full! I was blown away; the pet care industry either had the worst client service I had ever come across, or these businesses were so comfortable that they had lost the desire to even entertain the idea of new clients! When I did finally get a hold of somebody, I quickly realized they were far behind the times, no way to pay bills online, I had to write a weekly check to them, no way to login to a calendar and see my scheduled walks, there was no oversight, I had no idea when they were actually walking my dogs, or where they were going with them. It was then that I realized there was a major gap in the industry and there was an opportunity for somebody to step in and offer the best dog walking service Boston had ever seen!
My plan was simple, and was comprised of three components:
1) Always respond to clients or inquiries in 24 hours or less.
2) Provide 100% transparency though modern technology.
3) Create a system to ensure availability and never turn away business!
