Before we found Cathy, Randy, and the team of wonderful people at Happy Paws, we used to board our dog and two kitties whenever we had to be away from home. While our fur babies were always cared for at the boarding facilities, they were always stressed for multiple days after we would bring them home. The thought of needing to board our family members kept us from travelling as a family as much as we would like. Now we can travel without worry as the folks at Happy Paws come to our home and treat our pets as if they are their own. We come home to happy, rested, and stress-free pets!

We feel the best testimonial for Happy Paws Happy Pets is from our cat, Oliver. Whenever Randy comes to the house for last minute details before a trip, Oliver, no matter where he is in the house, comes running to see Randy and starts purring! He loves Randy!

Whenever on a trip, there is no better peace of mind knowing that your pet is well taken care of. We would never consider using another pet sitting service, nor would Oliver stand for it!

Thank you, Cathy and Randy, for the wonderful care you give to our pet, Oliver!

Happy Paws has been such a blessing to us. They are so helpful and have stepped up to help when our dog was found with an injury home alone. They stay in wonderful communication and we love the team who comes into our home. I feel like they understand our dogs on a very personal level. Special shout out to Stacy, who took the initiative to check in with us after work to make sure our pups were okay, because they just didn’t seem like themselves during her visit.

Deciding to get a puppy and working full time is a challenge. Having Cathy and Rosa to help share this experience has been wonderful! Cathy has been excellent, adding extra visits in short notice and Rosa has been so dependable and leaves us great notes daily. Friendly, Trustworthy, Dependable!!


I cannot recommend Happy Paws Pet Sitting enough! They provide an awesome service. Randy and Cathy are professional, reliable and dependable. My husband and I can travel knowing our babies Pepper and Freckles are well taken care of. They leave us a “report card” every day they are there, letting us know how the cats reacted/behaved, and even bring in the mail! We are always comfortable leaving out cats care in their capable hands.


Reliable. Professional. Peace of mind. Words that describe our experience with Happy Paws Happy Pets pet sitting! Our 'kids' are happy with their care too! Thank you for all you do!


Happy Paws does an outstanding job with my two dogs! Always available, even on holidays, for anything I need. Reasonable prices, too. Happy Paws gives a thorough report for each visit. I love the peace of mind utilizing Happy Paws gives me. Also, my dogs love them!


Happy paws pet sitting is the best! They really care for our animals and they are an important part of our pets’ happiness! Our gang loves their pet sitter and we are so glad to have found happy paws!

When I went through the initial interview process with Cathy and Randy, I knew I made the right choice. They were very thorough. From day one, I have never had an issue with their service. They have been very accommodating with special needs and never make me feel like I am asking too much. When I come home, I am greeted by two very happy and cared for dogs.

I would recommend Happy Paws to anyone.


We recently started using Happy Paws and are very pleased with the service. We especially like the fact that we can choose a time slot; this enables our cats to maintain consistency in our absence. We also look forward to the daily report cards on our return home. I would highly recommend this service for anyone looking for a caring pet sitter.

Cathy and Randy,

Thank you so much for the care that you provided to Molly while we were away. Molly seemed very content and relaxed when we returned home which is very different from when she spent time at the kennel. We will certainly be returning customers when we need to be away from home in the future!

Thanks for everything,

Shawn C. & Family

Hi Randy,

We just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate your sincere care for our pets! We especially like that you spend quality time with them, not just run in, feed them and then out the door. Both of our pets are happy when you come to help them out! We also appreciate that you clean up in the kitchen after feeding them and that we find our home in good order when we return. We are truly happy that we met you and hope to continue a long alliance with you!

Thanks again!

I am writing to let you know that your Happy Paws pet sitting service met and exceeding all of my expectations.  

I very seldom travel too far away from home because I do have three dogs.  However I decided to visit my sister for two weeks in April and she lives in Tennessee.  I considered taking all three along but it was out of the question.  I asked a friend if he would watch them while I was gone and he agreed.  At the 11th hour he backed out due to health issues and I was faced with canceling my trip and losing all the funds I spend on air fare.  

Then I found your pet sitting service.  My dogs were very happy to meet Randy and I was set. Of course I was worried but from the beginning I felt confident that they would be fine.  I did hold back calling every day and when I did check in I received a very positive response almost immediately!

When I returned home I was pleasantly surprised to find reports from each visit.  And, while Hoover, Jazzmen and Lucy were very glad to see me, they keep looking for Randy!  Obviously they also enjoyed his visits immensely!  

I don't think I could have asked for a better service!  

I appreciate your commitment to your clients and I will direct anyone who asks about pet sitting to you!

Three words describe Happy Paws:  Reliable, caring and trustworthy.  These words say it all.  I have peace of mind at work and when I’m away knowing that my pets are under their care.  I wouldn’t trust my pets with anyone else!
