Happy Pants mascot dog

8+ hours is too long for a dog to stay cramped up in an apartment. A Dog needs to go outside to relieve itself, exercise, and socialize with other dogs and people.

Happy Pants takes the honor of being let into your home and taking care of your dog very seriously. We strive to build a trusting, lasting relationship with you and your pet. You will consistently have the same Dog Walker who will establish a dependable routine. All of our Dog Walkers are well-trained, bonded and insured, constantly get evaluated by management, and are overall great folks that love dogs as much as you do.

We never pack-walk your dog. Your dog will get lots of attention and never be left alone. Our Dog Walkers keep a watchful eye on your dog, making sure that it is never put into a potentially dangerous situation.

We leave a note each time, chronicling all the good stuff that happened while you were gone. We are also happy to take care of any doggy tasks around the house (e.g. feeding) at no extra charge.

And as always, we are here for you. No matter the time of day, please feel free to contact Happy Pants with any questions or concerns.

Some more Happy Pants Walking details…

Scheduling
We ask that you try and give a 3 hour window for scheduled pickup. Session time is from pickup to drop off. Please always handle scheduling with Happy Pants’ main office.

Essentials
Please make sure that you 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 dogs 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 heavy rain or extreme heat, we may go inside after awhile for some indoor playtime.

Dogs with minor behavioral issues
If you are concerned that your dog may not do well in a group because it is rambunctious, barks a lot at other dogs, etc., please contact us. We have had great success introducing such dogs to groups and improving their overall behavior through close care and socialization.

Hours of operation/Holidays
We operate Monday – Friday, from 10:00 A.M – 5:00 P.M. Weekday visits outside this window are at additional $7 fee (after-hours weekend walks at another additional $5 fee). Walks starting before 8:30 AM and after 8 PM are $12 more than regular-hour walks. We observe the NY Stock Exchange calendar. Additional holidays include the Friday after Thanksgiving and the week between Christmas and New Year’s. Holiday walks (and accompanying weekend) are at additional $12 fee.
