I started Happy Tails eight years ago after eight years in the horse industry. During that time, I worked at several farms and stables doing everything from:
Dog Walker, Pet & Ranch Sitter
American Red Cross First Aid Certified
* mare watch
* teaching beginner lessons
* exercise riding
* administering meds (including IM & IV)
* equine physical therapy
* grooming for Grand Prix riders
I have 2 horses of my own, Paige and her son Odin. I also had a rescue dog, Brody, who had been my best friend for 12 years. Now I have a sweet rescue cat named Mal.
With the horses came dogs, and tons of them! I was always being asked to dog, cat, even coatimundi sit on the side. One day I just decided to go with it! I made the animals I have loved all my life into my livelihood and haven’t felt like I’ve worked a day since. I think of all the dogs I walk as my extended family.
