‚ÄčThe greatness of a nation can be judged by the way it's animals are treated.          Gandhi


To have a balanced life you need  a dog to adore you and a cat to ignore you!


A dog wags his tail with his heart.

Who We Are







    Several years ago I raised a puppy for the Guide Dog
Foundation.  She went for training and came back to us after two months
because she loved to sniff and wouldn't make a good guide
dog.  She could no longer go everywhere with me and had
to stay home while I worked. So we went to the Cortland SPCA and adopted Lucy     Lucy and Jaimie kept each other company during the day,
but there were often events that kept me away from home in
the evening.  Fortunately, in the town where I was living I  
found Doggie Day Care.  It was such a relief to leave the
girls there when I needed to and know that they would be
cared for, have fun and come home exhausted not caring
that I had to leave them again.
After moving to Elmira we missed Doggie Day Care and
"Mama" Lisa. I dreamed that some day I could bring the
same level of Doggie Day Care that we had left behind to
the Corning/Elmira area.  In fact whenever I needed to board
the girls I would drive an hour northeast even if I was going
to Buffalo just so I was confident that they would be well
cared for.  So here is Happy Tails.  Our goal is to give your dogs a fun,
caring, and happy place to spend the day or an overnight or
a week.  I promise to give you and your pets the same level
of service that I have come to expect for my animals.  It may
cost a little more.  How do you value your pets happiness
when they are not with you?  That's why we chose the motto:
"Happy Pets Have Happy Tails".
