There’s no Place like Happy Paws

You know the look. You’re packing for a trip and your dog is staring mournfully at your suitcase. You feel guilty and, frankly, a little worried. Who could give your pup the care and attention they expect? 

There may be no place like home and no pet parent quite like you – but Happy Paws is a close second. Whether you’ll be gone overnight, several days or even weeks, your dog will be treated to a vacation of their own. Enjoying days packed with stimulating games, regular walks and plenty of TLC. And nights spent in their own beds (never cages) watched over by loving, attentive caretakers (never left alone). You can even check up on your little darling via our video feed. 

Long-time clients Rachel Luersen and her dogs, Cody and Birdie, know this first-hand: “We’re confident our dogs are well taken care of and how delightfully exhausted they are when we pick them up! There is no better feeling than that.” 

For Andrew Vige, the overnight shift is his favorite time of day. The 23-year-old night guardian has been working at Happy Paws for over a year and says he considers the dogs his “own” for the night. And he’s devoted to keeping them “happy, healthy, fed and clean” while they’re in his care. He credits his own dogs dachshundswith training him to indulge every canine guest’s whim, including sleeping in his bed. “It’s like a big slumber party,” he says. “They count on me and when I can make a connection with a dog, it’s a rewarding, amazing feeling.” 

Happy Paws has been offering boarding, day care and training services since 2007. We understand that dogs, like their people, have different socialization and learning styles so our programs are personalized to address their unique needs. And our low pet-to-people ratio means your dog is always lovingly supervised. For dogs and their people, there’s no place like Happy Paws. 

Happy Paws is located at 4904 Wisconsin Ave. NW, Washington, D.C. 20016. Tel: 202.363.7297.
