Pet Sitting

This is the second time I’ve used Happy Tailz! They love animals, they send updates and photos to reassure you! I couldn’t put my pets in better hands. Thank you Bethany and Kelsey. You know I’ll be back!

Pet Sitting

Kelsey was great! She sent pictures every time she came to take care of my three cats. My cats have some peculiar requirements (prescription food for one, another is super shy, another thinks he is starving and tries to eat everything, etc) and she handled all the directions I left without any problems. I was able to enjoy my trip without worrying about how the cats were doing. Even my super shy cat who hides from everyone came out and let her pet him, which is incredible. I highly recommend her for your pet needs!

Pet Sitting

We are so glad we found Happy Tailz. We weren't sure what we were gonna do when my job change took me out of the home. I know I don't need to worry about my little bundle of fur. Bethany is awesome.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I am affordable and flexible. I love to stay within a 10 mile radius of my service area but I am willing to travel further. If you are a client and refer a client, you both get free 30 minute walks!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I love to set up a meet and greet with them to me their animals and also them. They we discuss what exactly we are looking for and move forward from there. If it is dog sittings, I reach out every Sunday for a week schedule. If it’s Sitting I like to schedule up to 6 months in advance. Then I communicate via email, text and newsletter.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a pet sitter certification that I passed!

Not what you’re looking for?

No problem: we have pros for every job.
