Happy Trails & Wag’n Tails

North County* Dog Walker & Pet Sitter


HTWT Pet Sitting Client – Bulldog

Your furry family member deserves the best!

Customized pet care is designed to make your life easier and keep your pet(s) stress-free by allowing him/her to keep their normal routine at home while having some fun!

Dog walking

Your dog walker will give your dog a chance to stretch their legs, expend some energy,  “stop to smell the roses” and of course relief!

Pet sitting

In-home pet care allows you to have peace of mind knowing that I (a professional pet sitter) am someone who truly loves what they do for a living — is caring for your pet(s) while you’re away on vacation.

Benefits of pet care for you!

– I may notice things you don’t:  Ex: an ear infection or signs of kidney issues.

– If you unexpectedly become injured or need to leave the area to attend a family issue,  I’m your back up!

– Dog walking gives you the flexibility to come home & relax after a hard day or have lunch with friends!

– Home security: My presence in your home gives it the “lived in look” and/or I may detect something that needs attention. For example, I saved one client from losing the foundation of his house which would have resulted in thousands of dollars in repairs.


Why choose Happy Trails & Wag’n Tails as your Pet Sitter or Dog Walker?

Health Care KnowledgeThere are no requirements for pet sitters to have health care knowledge, however, I choose to continue educating myself in holistic methods. This knowledge makes it more likely that I would recognize a health issue and if it’s necessary to go to a veterinarian, which will prevent unnecessary worry and save you money!

Consistency:  Same dog walker and same pet sitter every day.  Owner operated.

No pack walking:  I serve one client at a time to focus on your pet.  Safety is a top priority!

Insured:  You can feel at ease knowing that your pet(s) are being properly cared for by a professional.
