Welcome to Waggy Happy Tails Doggy Daycare & Walking!
We are a very calm, loving environment. I live in a large open space apartment so your dog will never be alone! No closed doors and I don't believe in crating. When a dog is in my care they receive 3 half hour walks a day - 2+ full hour walks on the weekends and all the snuggles they can handle. He or she can even sleep in the bed if they'd like :)
I have 2 dogs myself - Monty (6), a Border Terrier who I adopted the day after Thanksgiving 2015 because he was on the urgent kill list at the ACC and Humphrey (6) - my "old man" because he's a very sweet, loving, amazing dog but was badly abused before I adopted him so he tends to hang out around but not in my lap. He LOVES other dogs and people. He was with me first and he and Monty bonded immediately. Monty is the "caretaker" of the house...making sure everyone is awake and letting us know when it's walk time.
I only serve organic food to the dogs and they get tons of treats throughout the day. There are 2 water stations in the apt and always dry food for them to nibble on during the day.
A little about me:
I have been a dog owner my entire life. I don't remember a time in my life when I didn't have one. I love dogs...love love love them. If I could adopt another I would.
I am a very experienced dog walker & sitter. I have also learned many training tips from volunteer work I have done abroad in South East Asia with elephant & dog sanctuaries. I have extensive experience with administering medications -- Humphrey has non-contagious chronic allergies and needs medication daily -- I spend quite a bit of time at the vet and have picked up lots of tricks.
Also, I volunteer for 3 weeks a year in Thailand, Sri Lanka & Cambodia at elephant/dog sanctuaries. I am a NYC ambassador for Save Elephant Foundation and do not take vacation days in order pursue promoting elephant conservation & eco-tourism around South East Asia,
Having worked with 3 ton elephants, I'm pretty comfortable with handling a dog up to 100 lbs :) I am a gentle, kind, loving, warm and protective person. All dogs in my care are treated as if they are "home" and receive the same amount of attention as my own dogs. I don't believe in favoring one over the other.
Thank you again for visiting and I hope to hear from you soon!
