HAPPY TAILS HOME-STYLE DOG LODGE...
ABOUT THE HAPPY TAILS HOME-STYLE LODGE...
I started this company after my little 12 pound dog got injured in a kennel once when I went away. I didn't know better, and the experience was terrible. I found out later that most places leave your pet in a cage the whole day with little or no human contact. It was hard for me to travel because I didn't want to leave Lucy in more unfit care. Cages and kennels weren't the answer, as I couldn't bear the sad eyes she would give me as I was leaving. That is when I thought of Pet and People Services & The Happy Tails Homestyle Dog Lodge.
~I will keep the dogs I sit for and their playmates 30 pounds and under (with a bit of wiggle room) at my home. This will keep them safe. I am sure getting stepped on by a really BIG paw cannot be fun!
PEACE & LOVE
~ I will only care for up to 4-5 dogs at once.This allows me to pay very close attention, and make sure all the doggies have a lot of love. It is also a more relaxed, peaceful atmosphere for the kind of dog that might not like a noisy or busy environment all day. As some older dogs or what not may like it that way, we still have many dogs playing in different areas.
Y’ALL COME BACK NOW, HERE!
~I understand the unique needs of smaller dogs. They are different from bigger dogs as they get cold easy, they are not fond of the rain, most need items of comfort, and this is just a start. I also know that every dog is different. I love spending the time to find out what makes a dog happy, peaceful, calm, and truly wanting to return.
COME ON IN FROM THE COLD
~Dogs are never stuck outside. I do not leave any dog out back unless they want to be there.
~ We have fun toys, and only offer top of the line treats. Pets are never left alone or kenneled all day. I will have them out, playing and being cared for.
TIME IS ON MY SIDE
~ I have plenty of time to care for dogs who have a hard time eating away from home, or others who might be...clever, let's say, about taking their medicine.
