BEWARE!!! "PRIVACY" This one word has a very big meaning. A little information about a Pet Sitter Posting photos of your pets on public Blogs, Facebook etc.

Happy Pets Pet Sitting Service maintains discretion of our pet sitting service at your home.  We make sure we do everything possible that you being away from your home is NOT noticed.  Our service includes bringing in the mail, newspaper and even the trash and recycling can, which is included in our services.  We want to keep our clients home safe  and the lowest possibility of being burglarized.

A note to our clients  "Absolutely DO NOT put on your phone message that you are out of town."  We cannot stress that enough. We do not answer your phone while you are away it is a sure give away.

  • Signs - There is great risk having signs on our vehicles when we are at your home, that is why we do not have them on our vehicles.  It is a green light for anyone seeking out a home to burglarize, the signs are a sure give away to that person(s) driving by or living near by, that you are away from your home.

  • Photos - Posting photos on a Blog and Facebook or even Twitter can be a security issue also, if the photos are immediately uploaded and not a week or two later a hacker can locate using the location data tag where the pet sitter has taken the photo(s) and know that the owner at that address is out of town. We post photos on our blog without the location data turned on so it does not give away the location of the photo. The photos posted are posted at a later date. Usually after the client has returned home or even later when time permits.

  • Shirt, Hat etc... - Our Sitters do not wear hats or shirts with a logo. When our sitters arrive at your home we do not wear any clothing that has a logo on it.

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…

Cold Weather Pet Safety Tips

Fall has arrived with the arrival from the storm from the Hurricane that came up as a tropical storm from Baja Mexico.  The cold windy, rain weather is sticking around.  Looks like we are even in for more rain.  This cooler weather is fully welcome after the unusually hot summer we had in the area.

  To help your pets adjust and to be protected from the change of weather I thought listing tips to help out pets adjust to the cooler temperatures may help.

1. Winter Check up: a Veterinarian wellness exam for our older pets to make sure they are healthy and ready for another winter.  Arthritis and age plays a key part in keeping our pets healthy.

2. Know their Limits:  Just like people it depends on their age, health condition.  When the temperature drops below 45 degrees Fahrenheit our pets feel the cold like we do. It does not mater if it a Dog, Cat or horse, if they are up in age and arthritic they need assistance to keep warm and pain free.

3. Offer several Choices:  At night on whe…
