Is There a Timeframe for Your Boarding Service?

Whether it’s a three-day business trip or a two-week family vacation, it’s always difficult leaving your pet behind while you are out of town. That is why when selecting a boarding service, you need to ensure that you choose the best. By picking Happy Tales Family Pets, Inc., you are guaranteeing that this is the case. We cut no corners in the delivery of pet care excellence and you shouldn’t either. Our service can be as long or as short as you require. In general, most pets stay with us between ten to fourteen days.

Why Is it Important to Treat Your Pets to Regular Nail Care Treatments?

Failing to have the nails of your pet clipped and maintained correctly could prove extremely costly for your home. Wooden floors, freshly painted walls or wooden chair and table legs could all become a playground for a cat, dog or even rabbit with excessively long nails. So, to ensure the upkeep of your home, you need to treat your pet to regular nail care treatments from us.

That being said, as bad as long nails are for your home, they are a lot worse for your pet. Failing to cut, your pet’s nails can result in injuries ranging from torn nails to arthritis. This is particularly true for dogs’ nails as they are curved, so if they grow too long they can dig into their paw pads and cause extreme pain. To avoid inflicting this level of pain on your pet, make sure that their nails are treated regularly.

As a family we are making a decision, a decision, that was a difficult one to make. We have decided to close down for boarding & grooming, this will be effective on September 28th.

We want to say Thank You to all of our amazing pet families. It has been an honor to be entrusted with the care of your pets. We have been incredibly blessed within this community of pet families!

This past year has presented a couple of health challenges within our family,that are not resolved as of yet. We are at a crossroads, and simply need to make some transitional changes.

Thank you again, for a wonderful 3 years of serving you and your pets. We will miss you and your furry pets.

Hi everyone… “It’s Nina, your groomer at Happy Tales. I’m so sad to see the doors closing as I have been here a long time. I wish the Nisley family so much happiness. They are a wonderful family and it has been a joy working with them. To all my clients, I also groom in portage so if you’re interested in remaining with me we can get you that info. To all my clients who don’t want to drive that far( I totally get it) I have a recommendation for you with another groomer in Constantine so again let us know. It’s been a pleasure to be your groomer.”
