I am so happy with Ebony. She is friendly, caring and makes me feel at ease when I work away. She has looked after Bonnie my Cat on two occasions and soon to be a 3rd next week. Bonnie has complex care instructions regarding medication etc which I can rest assured are taken care of in my absence. I love the daily updates and photos, it makes me feel so much more at ease when I have to work away. Thank you so much!

I could not be any happier with the service from all the team at Happy Hounds, especially Natalie. The team come and see to my doggo every weekday whilst me and my partner are at work and I just know that he is given the best love and attention. I fully trust them to make the decision whether it is safe enough for him to venture out for a short walk or whether they just play and interact with him 😊 (you guys really have the best job, I wish I could join you haha!).
Nothing is too much bother for Natalie either, she has been so accommodating when both me and my partner had to go into isolation and Mowgli had been able to leave the house on his adventure walks more than we could lol!
Highly recommend Happy Hounds to anyone, absolutely the best service I have ever received! and a huge thank you for your time ☺️

Fantastic service, we highly recommend! Cierra was awesome looking after all our animals, watering plants, bringing in bins and the rest. We are so impressed by her professionalism and willingness to go the extra lengths to cater to our needs. She clearly is great with animals and we would definitely trust her with our animals again.

(look how ridiculously adorable he is in her photo!) The best photos and videos that kept our minds at ease!!

Absolutely loved the experience of Happy Hounds from the moment I made an enquiry! No matter how many questions I had I always received such a prompt response from Natalie.

We have now used the pet services twice and could not think of a better group to take care of our 15 year old fur ball. Loved all the updates we received and it made our time away all the more relaxing knowing our puppy dog was being taken care of and enjoying his time with his puppy sitters.

We can’t wait to use the service again soon!

We booked our trip and then had to cancel due to Covid and then we rebooked again and nothing was too much hassle for them to rearrange for us.

We had the amazing heather who came for a meet and greet before our trip, and was so intent on making sure our pets were so well looked after.

What I loved was you could see when they checked in for the visit, heather would send texts every day she visited with photos. She couldn’t find one of our cats one day and stayed until she did, and she even hid our elf on the shelf while we were away.

Highly recommended, great value for money and will definitely use again.

I would happily recommend this awesome service! We had Ellie from happy hounds come visit and care for our Bonnie. We were blown away with the service she provided for our pup. She was extremely caring and professional and went above and beyond for our Bonnie. The communication from the team at happy hounds is fantastic and super efficient. We will happily use this service in the future!

Happy Hounds provided Holiday drop in visits for my cat over 3 days. Ainsly was super helpful, and I loved the communication and care that was given to my cat. Happy Hounds made me feel confident that my cat was being cared for, and allowed me to enjoy my time away without stress. 10/10 would recommend 🙂

Thankyou for coming to the rescue at such short notice! Our pet sitter was Sabrina and her communication was excellent (as was Natalies’s). She liaised with our first pet sitter when we weren’t home and took care of our babies well. She even left us a beautiful handwritten welcome home note and drew this amazing picture of our dogs 🤩🤩. Thankyou!!

We’ve booked Nat and the team a number of times now to care for our two cats, one of whom has a medical stress condition and sometimes needs medication, and we could not be happier! Nat always manages to accommodate us for short or long bookings, and even when we last minute decide to have a weekend away. The little extras for whenever we’re away longer (mail, watering plants etc) are an added bonus and a great help! Highly recommend Nat and her team 😊

Incredible service! We have been getting regular puppy visits for our boxer pup since she was 12 weeks old. The service from Natalie has always been outstanding, super easy to book and very responsive. Ellie takes the best care of Frankie. Frankie loves her visits and adventure walks with Ellie so much and it eases our minds when we are at work that Frankie is in the best hands and getting play time during the day. Couldn’t recommend this service enough! Thanks again! Frankie is looking forward to her visits and walks this week 😊

Nat and Georgia have been nothing short of amazing! ❤️ Happy hounds have always been able to accommodate care for my needy Golden Retriever around my unpredictable work roster, dropping in to play and check on him while I work weekends and night shifts. I couldn’t be more grateful! Their professionalism, attention to detail and reliability brings such peace of mind! Bookings, drop ins and even overnight stays have always been seamless. Couldn’t recommend them more! 🐾

We used Happy Hounds for our Beagle / Foxhound whilst we went to Brisbane for the night. Our dog has a lot of energy and needs lots of love so we opted for the The Social Pupperino with an additional walk in the morning. Booking was easy and Stacey reached out to organise a meet and greet. She was great with Bruno, handled him great and listened to all our weird and wonderful requests for our pampered, precious pooch. Whilst away we got regular updates with photos and texts of reassurance ( at no extra charge ) we got email updates with live tracking data of the walks and the house was left tidy and clean. Will definitely be using these guys again - Thanks Happy Hounds

We were so happy to have found Happy Hounds and have them be able to help with our boxer dog at our secret elopement and then to look after him with some overnight stays while we had our minimoon. From the initial communication with Nat who managed to fit us in last minute, the perfect amount of photos and updates from Carrisa nothing was to much hassle! We were at complete ease with being away and returned to a very happy content dog. We will definitely be returning customers and have also recommend to anyone who needs some help with their pets.

Happy Hounds completely saved me at the last minute for a house sitter. They were professional, prompt and pretty reasonable! I got daily (sometimes twice daily) updates of both our dog and our cat who were probably more spoilt than they are by us! Happy customer, thanks Natalie and Georgia. ❤️

We're so happy with the service from Happy Hounds!
Thankyou so much Natalie for your great communication in getting us all organised, and thanks especially to Lilli who looked after our 5 furry friends while we were away. We really appreciated the daily updates letting us know everyone was all ok. It gave us great peace of mind.

With 5 animals to feed and all of their little idiosyncrasies (and our grumpy 50kg Rotti hahah), Lilli took it all in her stride and I was confident they were all in safe hands.

In the past, we've relied on family and house sitters for us to be able to take a holiday - but that always presented a few issues so our holidays and breaks away we're limited.

Now we've found such a professional, reliable and quality service like Happy Hounds, we are looking forward to more time away.

Thanks so much Happy Hounds - I can't recommend you highly enough!!

Thank you to Nat and her team for taking such great care of my boy with drop-in visits and day stays. When my boy had to have surgery and needed a watchful eye as he recovered and I had to return to work, it gave me great comfort knowing that Nat and her team were taking such great care of him.

Nat was and always is very accommodating and often squeezed in drop-in visits at very short notice. Nat and her team’s care, coupled with their photo and video updates, gave me peace of mind knowing that my boy was being checked on and well looked after while I had to work and as he settled into his new environment. Thanks you Happy Hounds Dog Walking and Pet Sitting!

Such a great service! Abbey was beautiful with my Milly. I loved getting the video and photo updates with Milly looking so happy. Such an easy and stress-free process from start to end, including the meet and greet and throughout the drop in visits. Milly was able to stay in her familiar home environment with Abbey dropping in to feed, walk, and play with Milly. Such a great alternative to putting Milly into a kennel. Highly recommend Abbey and Happy Hounds.

We in turn we’re able to have an amazing weekend away and with total piece of mind also with daily updates with great photos attached. Going forward we will definitely be seeking Happy Hounds services again as they have proven to be extremely passionate and professional with their service at all times.

Ebony and Abbey were absolutely wonderful with our cats Phoebe and Miles. I was a bit worried leaving our furbabies for two weeks, as they both love their cuddles and routine. We were so relieved that they were cared for so lovingly, and the regular updates and photos put us all totally at ease, so we could enjoy our holiday. One of our kitties is also very, very shy, so it was wonderful that Abbey and Ebony took the time to bring him out of his shell for cuddles and attention. I would not hesitate to book Happy Hounds again - they were brilliant. Even brought in our mail and left a lovely note to come home to. Thank you for everything, Abbey and Ebony!

This was our first experience with Happy Hounds but it absolutely won’t be our last. Communication was superb, booking was simple, and our home was so clean and tidy when we arrived back home. We loved the texts and photos we received each day while we were away. Thank you for such a wonderful service.

We have just returned from five nights away from our girls (who are a little bit crazy might I add) and I can not express how well they were looked after, Ellie was amazing with them and with us! We always had photos and updates of their adventures and snuggle time and felt really at ease. The house has also been looked after so well! You wouldn’t have even known someone had been staying here, and we also came home to a lovely note and some treats for the girls. Such a great experience dealing with you guys, thanks so much! 💛

Thanks again guys looking forward to next time.

They absolutely put my mind at ease with their meet and greet before any services so I could meet the carers and our dog also felt super comfortable. I got regular gps updates of walks as well as photos (just like daycare). Buddy was so spoilt with cuddles and walks !! I would not hesitate to use them again for our 1 year old cocker spaniel. Buddy was so happy to stay in his home environment and just have new friends to come and hang out with him Thank you 🙏

As new pet owners to 2 greyhounds, it can be hard to feel comfortable with just anyone looking after them. Natalie and the team have made me feel so confident in leaving my anxious pups on their own!
They love Ebony - who comes for daytime visits and has done a few overnight stays. I honestly couldn’t imagine leaving them with anyone else!

Thank you Happy Hounds! 🐶🐶

We were so nervous about leaving our 6 month old puppy at home while we were away for a week. He is our baby and it was so important to find someone to care for him that would love him just as much as we do and we are so grateful to have found that in the Happy Hounds teams! Natalie was so accomdating to our short notice request and went out of her way to make her work for us! While we were away, we really loved the photo updates and felt at ease seeing what our boy was up to and how happy he was. Having the girls stay at home with him was the best decision as his routine got to stay the same for him and he seemed really happy with his new friends. Finn enjoyed lots of couch cuddles and lots of Frisbee fetching just like he would have if we were home and I am grateful for this service letting us enjoy our time away, knowing our boy was so safe and happy.

Thank you so much Abbey and Natalie for the stellar service we received this long weekend! I was out of town and decided to try Happy Hounds Dog Walking for my fox terrier Buddy. Couldn’t recommend this service highly enough. From start to finish I was communicated with and advised if anything needed to change due to weather conditions. I was sent regular notifications advising when Abbey had picked Buddy up and also dropped him off. She also provided picture and video updates once finished which was greatly appreciated. Will definitely be using this service again. Thank you both!

This is the second time I have used Happy Hounds and wouldn't go anywhere else ever again. Plenty of updates, you can tell the girls really love animals and Bea looked to be having a great time. House was spotless on our return, they even left a really thoughtful little gift for Bea who loves a treat! Happy Hounds are a professional company and worth every dollar. I recommend them highly enough.

I have used Happy Hounds 3 times now and every time I have been so impressed. All the girls have been lovely and taken great care of my 2 boys. I’ve always come home to happy relaxed dogs. I get videos, photos and updates and it makes such a difference going away knowing you don’t have to worry about your pets. Highly recommend!!!

Ellie from happy hounds was amazing at looking after my boy Francois. Ellie stayed overnight and sat with him.

Francois is special needs and requires a little extra care, Ellie was so accommodating and we would certainly recommend Ellie and happy hounds.

I can’t recommend Happy Hounds enough. They have been working with my furbaby who has fear-aggression issues but they are so calm and patient and I feel so lucky to have people who love my dog nearly as much as I do! Thank you from the bottom of my heart and I hope Basil will trust you soon and have another hooman friend in his life 🥰🥰🥰

Couldn’t recommend Happy Hounds enough! We had Carissa come and do a meet and greet the week before the overnight stays and I felt comfortable straight away. Our dogs got up to some mischief and Carissa was great with just dealing with it! We got lots of updates throughout the stay and the house was left clean and tidy. Thank you again!

We booked Happy Hounds to look after our animals over a 8 day period. Ellie was awesome! She sent lots of photos and videos, which we loved! We felt very confident and reassured that our pets were well cared for, our dog Magnus loved the park trips, swimming in the lake. We definitely will book through Happy Hounds again! Very happy and our pets were too 😊🌸

For our latest trip we organized Happy Hounds to look after our cat. Georgia was amazing and she took very good care of him and knowing he was in Georgia’s capable hands made it a little easier to leave him for a family break. We will without a doubt be using happy hounds again!

We have recently used Happy Hounds for the first time. The process was so easy and we had Abbey look after our pets. We had to make changes due to flights being cancelled, but the Happy Hounds team were very accommodating. Abbey was lovely and we received daily messages about our pets. I would definitely recommend!

Not knowing anyone personally that has used Happy Hounds we decided to engage them anyway for daily visits for our 2 inside dogs. Stacey was amazing! and from the first meet and greet I knew they were in good hands. The best thing is we can now go away more often knowing there is someone reliable to take care of our pets 🙂

just wanted to say what an amazing job Heather did looking after our 2 indoor cats last week. Heather visited twice a day and ensured all of our requests were done. She took her time to engage with our shy babies. Daily updates and photos were sent through so we knew how well they were doing. i would highly recommend Happy Hounds and Heather to take care of your fur babies.

We left Harlow for the first time with someone who wasn’t family or friend and we could not have made a better decision than Happy Hounds. Nat came and looked after our home and fur baby while we were away. We received updates and came home to a very content and happy pup. Definitely will not hesitate to book them again.

Zoe and Ellie looked after my two miniature schnauzers bliss and chip. Chip is a puppy and hasn’t had all his vacs. Bliss is a gentle elder 11 years old who has minor separation issues with me since we returned to Australia about 5 months ago. And chip had only been home with us for 10 days. The process of booking and notifications was a great combination of the automated and personal touch. Zoe and Ellie shared the 24/7 care I required and juggled all the different needs of these two. I got spontaneous updates every day which I loved. I watched via video they sent my two most important fur friends bond with each other while I was dealing with a family matter. Highly recommend Happy Hounds. Zoe and Ellie, thanks so much for looking after Bliss and Chip. 🐶🌟🌟

I honestly could not recommend Happy Hounds high enough! They were amazing, I received daily photos and messages of our shepherd which put me at ease as I’ve never let anyone else walk him but us. Raphy loved Zoe to the point now at 7am every morning he waits at the door for her to arrive and take him for a walk! Thanks so much and would definitely be using Happy Hounds again

We had our second booking with Happy Hounds over the weekend and again we are so impressed with the highly professional service they offer. Stacey took care of our home and four pets for 3 nights, she was so lovely when we met up for the meet and greet and was so natural
around both our dogs and cats. It's wonderful peace of mind to be able to go away knowing your pets and home are in safe hands. I received lots of updates and photos, and when we arrived home the fur kids were relaxed and happy. I would highly recommend Happy Hounds and their amazing team to anyone looking for pet sitting services and dog walking 🐕🐈🐕🐈❤❤❤❤

Thanks so much Natalie and Zoe for such amazing service! We left our two cocker spaniels with Zoe for the weekend, while we enjoyed a worry free holiday. I have never felt more comfortable about leaving my dogs with someone - Zoe is so lovely and showed Angus and Maggie genuine love and care while we were away. We received heaps of photos and videos too! Highly recommend Happy Hounds - thanks so much again guys!

Very pleased and happy to have found such a great pet sitter! Super professional and helpful, Natalie was so friendly, and I was lucky that they were also able to take my booking last minute which included a meet and greet 🙂 I’d highly recommend Amber who was our sitter and so sweet and accomodating every step of the way. Certainly would reach out to them again in the future!

I highly recommend Happy Hounds! Amber was incredible, she came and visited and loved my cat Jakey, sent daily updates and was quick to reply to messages. Jakey loved Amber, and he is very selective as to who he loves! Natalie was great to deal with, very responsive to my messages (on Christmas Eve!) and fit me in at the drop of a hat!
Cannot wait to have you over to care for Jakey again!

Nat and the team treat our two labradors like their own. They have been walking our two for a long time now and always look after them when we go away. Regular updates, tips on things to help them in their day to day care and just alot of love for them! The team has become like family to them and i couldnt recommend them more highly.

We were lucky enough to have Zoe stay in our home to take care of our two staffies, and I can not recommend her highly enough. Zoe is the perfect house guest, very accommodating, incredible with the pooches and perfectly reliable. I’ve used other types of services in the past but I must say this was the most relaxed I’ve ever felt having someone take care of our beloved dogs, and come and go from our home ☺️🏆

5 Stars!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Can’t recommend Happy Hounds highly enough! First time using Happy Hounds and I am blown away. From the first interaction when booking on line, the team were so helpful.

Our Dog sitter Amber went above and beyond! I am always so anxious when going away as I hate leaving our boy. It was just so nice to know he was in such good hands! We were sent daily photos and updates which put my mind at ease. Our pup was spoilt rotten, our bins were brought in chickens were fed and all doggy nuggets were disposed of. We came home to a very happy pup and a beautiful note and treat for our little guy.

Thank you so much Happy Hounds, we will be using you every time we go away! 🐶🐶🐶🐶🐶

We have used Happy Hounds since Natalie started the business some 7 years ago. I believe were we one of the first few clients she had. All I can say is that everything she has done from back then till now has been amazing. The care for our dogs when we were away, the regularly walks and play and the genuine love for animals that Natalie and her team that she has built is amazing. The prices are reasonable and the service is always over delivered. Thank you guys. Daniel L. Ormeau

We left it fairly late to organise someone to sit our two large older dogs, and although they were mostly booked, they did all they could to accomadate us. We were very lucky to get to know Mya who sat our boys. She took the time to come out and meet them and us a couple of days before she needed to sit them.
The boys got on very well with her and Mya has such a lovely happy manner with her. Nothing was too much trouble I would highly recommend Happy Hounds anytime. And a huge thanks to Mya who without her sitting for us we would not have been able to enjoy our wonderful night away.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Happy Hounds and will happily re-book again in the future. We were away for a week and both Amber’s looked after our 4 year old French bulldog Nala. They took amazing care of her and gave daily updates and photos so we felt reassured at all times. Thanks for taking such great care of our Nala! 😊

Maddi did a great job checking in and walking our 2 dogs while we were away over Christmas. We had daily updates and the dogs always looked so happy in the photos Maddi sent through! So much easier and less stressful to know the dogs are happy at home instead of a kennel. Will definitely use Happy Hounds in the future!

I would happily recommend Happy Hounds Pet Services and will be using them for all our future holidays.
Communication both before and during our holiday were fantastic and we received lots of wonderful photos of our babies whilst we were away which provided much needed reassurance that they were settled.
One of our pups is a rescue and a little nervous around new people but he took to Georgia instantly. We can't thank them enough

Thank you to Emily who looked after our 8 month old English Bulldog Winston last night so we could go to a family function. It was the first time we have left him with someone non-family, and after looking at all the options of getting some help we decided to engage Happy Hounds as we had everything set up at home that he needs and not be anxious. Emily did a fabulous job and Natalie made the process so easy that we have booked again. Thank you so much, we’re so grateful for this fabulous service 🙏
