Popeye

Popeye is really enjoying himself. He just looks very happy and comfortable being an island dog. The first day he was here we went to the beach and if he could talk I would bet he way saying “THIS PLACE IS SO COOL! THANK YOU FOR BRINGING ME HERE!!!” You helped make his trip very stress free and easy. I really appreciated the constant updates, immediately responses and hard work on your end. I felt confident the trip was going to be easy from day one having you on the case. Thank you so much for everything. You and your team really do a great job for people and pets that need help.

Joe

Happy Tails did an excellent job transporting my high anxiety dog from California to Oregon as part of our family move.  Every detail was meticulously seen to, and the driver, Mia, went above and beyond to ensure that Little Joe was safe, happy and loved throughout the journey.  She was delayed due to weather, but communicated frequently and sent pictures to set my mind at ease that he was safe and comfortable and well cared for.  I highly recommend this service as a way to get your pet to its new home.

The kitties are happy in their new private room and get lots of lovin’ from all of us, especially our little grandkids. Here is a pic of Smokey Lonesome and one of beautiful Bianca- she’s winking and trying to tell you she had a fabulous trip from KY to NH! Oliver was bring camera shy.  Thank you so much for the great service you provided. It was a huge relief to have the cats taken care of so well. We certainly will use your services again if needed, and of course will recommend Happy Tails!

Thanks again,

Hi Bridget, thank you for the incredible amount of work you and your staff have done towards making the shipping of the two pups to Europe a reality. Now they are gaining weight and enjoying their new home. I have heard from Linda who says how thoroughly pleased she is with the soundness, temperament and quality of the two pups.Thank you again for seeing this through from initial contact to a satisfactory ending for all.

Kaya (2)

Happy Tails Travel was such a huge peace of mind for me during this pretty stressful move. Kaya arrived in Glasgow with no problems, and was so happy to be reunited with us. They answered dozens of questions to ease my anxious mind and made this process so much easier on me.I can't thank you enough! 

We are settling in nicely, and Kaya LOVES her new home and exploring all the beautiful scenery every day! 

Thanks again for all your help,

Circe

Circe is settling in well in our new home thanks to Happy Tails Travel, Inc. They handled everything and guided me every step of the way. It was a very seamless and stress-free process. I was especially concerned because she's 19-years-old and was traveling from Chicago to Seattle, but Happy Tails got her to me safely.

Thank you so much Happy Tails Travel & Kim!

My family and I were moving to LA and so we needed to fly our labradoodle, Emma. We were moving from Miami and with all the temperature restrictions for flying pets in hot temperatures, we knew that it would be tricky. The folks at Happy Tails were great! They booked Emma on a flight and kept us updated on the temperatures. At the last minute, the temperature soared past 85 degrees and the airport folks wouldn't let Emma on the flight. There were no other flights out in the next 24 hours and my family and I were scheduled on our own flights early the next morning. We were freaking out! Kim, at Happy Trails organized for Emma to be picked up in Miami and driven to Orlando, where she found a flight leaving very early in the morning for LA. She saved us a ton of aggravation! And now Emma is a California dog;) Thanks, Happy Tails!

Moose (2)

Our return was a breeze and we settled back into our home life quickly. Pamela was a huge help and made our departure and return so pleasant - thank you again for recommending her to us! The whole process with Happy Tails Travel was so easy on my end and made our travels stress-free. Both times I picked up Moose from the flights he was safe and sound with his tail wagging. I can’t tell you how thankful I am that he was safe and happy throughout our travels. It means the world. 

Thank you so much for everything you did to help us, we are so appreciative. We will not hesitate to use you guys again for any future travels!

Winter Weather Safety Tips to Keep Your Pet Safe and Warm

By: Bridget Monrad, R.N. | Dec 24, 2017

With the winter weather already here in many parts of the country, we wanted to share some tips on how to keep your cats and dogs inside as much as possible.  Pets are just as susceptible to the wintery elements as humans, including succumbing to frostbite.  If they are strictly outdoor pets, be sure to give them extra blankets, towels, even an old heating pad or heated blanket to cozy up to on those long, winter nights.  Also, make sure they have a small house or cubby that they can escape into from the elements.

Second, dogs’ feet can be very dry and tender, just like ours, due to the cold, dry weather. Do not use human lotions as they can soften paws too much and lead to other health and skin problems.  Instead, keep a batch of coconut oil, or oatmeal butter, specially designed for doggy paws on hand to help re-hydrate their pads.

Third, booties and sweaters may be funny and complicated to put on your pet, but they really do help!  Certain breeds with shorter, more thinly layered, fur can benefit from wearing a sweater, coat, or even rain coat in certain weather.  While your dog may initially reject wearing any “protective” clothing, with time and training, most dogs come to realize the joy, comfort, and warmth these cute outfits provide.

Fourth, and possibly one of the most important, is to be aware of those outside pets that might curl up under a car hood for warmth!  Cats are particularly drawn to the warmth of the car engines and will often curl up under the hood, or just on top of a tire. If you suspect you might have an animal trying to keep warm, check around your car and maybe even bang on your car hood to scare them out before starting your car.  Along the same lines, when putting antifreeze in your car to help prevent freezing, keep an eye out for leaks and spills.  Cats and dogs both are attracted to the sweet taste of the antifreeze, however, and it can be fatal to animals!  Use caution when winterizing your vehicles!

Lastly, if you have a fireplace, while it may feel nice and toasty and pretty to you, it can be dangerous for pets.  Be sure to keep their bedding far enough away that no stray embers from the wood can jump out and catch the bedding on fire.  Keep a grate or guard in front of the fire to protect pets, and little ones, from excessive heat.  Do not allow pets to sit too closely as they can overheat quickly as well.

Remember – our pets skin, fur, and feet are just as delicate as our own!  Keep warm, friends!
