Dog Walking Service


 There are many benefits to why people need to hire a Professional Dog Walker. Some owners do not have the time in their busy schedule or don’t have a yard because they live in an apartment. Some are physically unable to take their dog(s) for a walk. There are certain dog breeds that require more exercise than others.  A dog needs a job to do. If they just lay around the yard or the home, they will develop bad habits, like excessive barking, chewing and tearing up things in the house, digging in the yard or even worse digging under the fence.  Having a Professional Dog Walker provides the opportunity to release some of the pent up aggression and energy that builds up throughout the day while positively reinforcing routines, practicing proper leash etiquette (not pulling on the leash etc…) and working on some basic walk training such as “sit” before crossing the street, heel, come and street etiquette (not barking at other people, dogs etc.)  We here at Happy Pets need to stress that your dog needs exercise. Walking, or even fetch in the backyard and they need it daily to prevent bad habits. I keep reading about why dogs are given up at the shelters.  The dog barks too much, the dog won’t quit digging in the newly landscaped yard or tearing up the house. These reasons are caused because the dog is not getting enough exercise. The changes we have seen in a dog once they are exercised and have playtime and also some training is like seeing a whole new dog.  The difference can be tremendous.  

Whatever the reason that an owner has for not taking their dog on a daily walk, we as Professional Dog Trainer’s/Dog Walker’s and Pet Sitter’s are here to offer that service for you, the owner and the dog.

Rats as Pets

Yes, I said Rats. They make awesome pets and are clean.Most Rats do not bite, compared to a hamster or gerbil, in the past I have had pet rats and mostly just one rat at a time. I used to keep the rat in a 10 Gal aquarium which I find out is wrong. The rat would just lie in the Aquarium all day and looked depressed. Times have changed for the better for the rat. I started reading and doing research. Rats are sociable. Always have at least two Rats together, same sex of course or you will have many more unless they are neutered. Rats like to run and play with each other and their toys. Homemade toys are the best and are cheap.

Housing:First let me talk about housing for the Rats. Please don’t keep them in an aquarium. The air does not circulate in them to well and the ammonia builds up quickly from their urine and will cause the rats to have upper respiratory infections. Rats are clean; they clean themselves daily like a cat. They also can be litter box trained. Homemade cages can be b…

Busy Christmas Time

Baking, shopping, wrapping, decorating……sometimes you are so busy that things get left out for your dog or cat to get into.A new puppy or kitten added to the household will get into things.Please, if you are not at home to watch your pets activity please remember to put items away so they cannot get into them or crate train your new family member.Your puppy can get some crate training while you are wrapping gifts or baking.Yes, they may make some noise but it pays off in the long run and you are right there to make sure they are just fine.Just remember to let them out of the crate while they are quiet, not when they are whining or barking to be let out. Praise them as you let them out.
Tinsel is very bad to put on your Christmas tree if you have a kitten.They will eat it, costly surgery intervention may be required to remove it from the kittens intestine. Dogs and puppies get into everything when left alone, even wrapped presents. If you have a Live Christmas Tree, to make the tree las…
