  • I want to thank Bridget at Happy Tails Travel for making Moose's move seamless.

    I always worry about the care of my animals, and Bridget assured me that their business associates both in the states and in Germany were well equipped to take care of our 150 lb baby.

    We were able to focus on our travel plans while Moose was in good hands. We will definitely be using Happy Tails travel again when we move back to the states
