About Us

Our Story

Happy Bark & Tails began in 2015 by my husband Gabriel & myself (Madeline). We began our business out of necessity since we weren’t able to find a trustworthy dog walker for our dog Lola. We also wanted to have a career where we could bring our dog to work so dog walking seemed like an amazing career to pursue. Gabriel graduated with a computer science degree and I graduated with a business management degree. We decided not to work in our respective fields and worked in restaurants as waiters at night and slowly grew our dog walking business during the day. Happy Bark & Tails slowly grew and we were able to quit the restaurant jobs and became fully dedicated and committed to our business.

We are passionate about our customers’ experiences and in the pet service industry that means; trust and reliability. At HBT, we are fully invested in giving our clients just that.  We stand by our motto “PET CARE WITH EXCELLENCE”.
