Meet the HUSBAND & WIFE  behind Happy barks & Tails




grew up on a farm in the Dominican Republic with many different animals, including many herding dogs. Being around dogs for most of life, she developed a deep appreciation for what comes along with being a dog owner. After working for several years in NYC in the hospitality industry she moved to NJ where she met Gabriel. Together they got a dog, whom they named Lola. Lola has been the inspiration behind Happy Bark & Tails.
