Happy Pants mascot dog

The first couple months of a dog’s life play a critical role in determining the sort of dog he or she becomes. Puppies need constant stimulation and care to become comfortable with other dogs, people, and new environments. A typical workday is too long a period to keep a puppy enclosed without any attention. Puppies that don’t get to socialize often, run the risk of becoming shy, skittish, or aggressive later in life.

Happy Pants Puppy Care gives your new best friend the type of close attention he or she needs and deserves. Our well-trained team member comes to your home and lets your puppy actively explore and adjust to its new world.

We see to the following:

Happy Pants Puppy Care lets you take comfort in knowing that your puppy is getting the same loving treatment it would get if your were able to be home.

The Puppy Care program costs $110/week for 1 visit a day and $200/week for 2 visits a day (morning and afternoon).
Visits are Monday – Friday and are half-hour long.
* Price does not include 8.875% NYC Sales Tax.

Scheduling
We ask that you try and give a 2 hour window for scheduled pickup. Session time is from pickup to drop off. Please always handle scheduling with Happy Pants’ main office.

Essentials
Puppies need all of their vaccinations or some type of protective wear (e.g. Booties) to go outside. Please have clean-up products accessible in case of any puppy messes. Please also have bags, a safe harness or collar that doesn’t slip off, paper out for a note, and a towel ready in the event of rain. Please provide a set of keys for your apartment or give word to your doorman to give access. All puppies must be licensed and have ID tags. A signed contract is required for service.

Weather
We come no matter the weather. In the event of extreme conditions, our team member will limit your puppy’s time outside and bring it in for some indoor play.

Age
Dogs mature at different rates. Puppy Care is generally for newborns up until 7-12 months old. As your puppy grows, we will discuss its graduation from Puppy Care with you and other ways that it can keep putting on its Happy Pants.
