What areas in San Diego do you currently provide services in?
We provide services in specific areas throughout the City of San Diego. These areas include:
Downtown San Diego, Little Italy, Banker's Hill, Hillcrest, Mission Hills, Old Town, University Heights, North Park, College Area, Del Cerro, Mission Valley, Fashion Valley, Clairemont, and possible other locations near these areas.
Do you have any pets of your own?
Yes! Angela owns two Maltipoos named Panda and Bubbles. Her furry babies are nine year old sisters and they have been a part of her family since they were eight weeks old. She loves her girls and treats all of her fur friends with the same care and compassion she shows her own.
What payment methods do you accept?
We currently accept personal checks made out to Oh Happy Dog! as well as cash.
When is payment due?
For regularly scheduled dog walks, payment is monthly and due at the beginning of each month (unless a different payment plan is agreed upon). This reserves your space in the regular, weekly schedule and gives you priority for your chosen days and times. For one-time or occasional visits as well as pet sittings, payment is due at the time of service.
What is your policy for cancelling a dog walk?
To be fair to other clients, we appreciate cancellations as soon as you know you won’t need our services. At the latest, walks can be canceled by 7:00pm the evening before the day of the visit for the walk to be fully credited to your next statement. If cancelled after 7:00pm the evening before the visit, there will be a $10 charge as we have blocked out that time for your pup/s and may have missed out on other pet visits.
What if my dog walker is sick or needs to go on vacation?
Typically, you will meet two-three dog walkers in your initial consultation (two may be your usual dog walkers with one being a back-up assistant or they may all three equally provide the regularly scheduled dog walks for your pup/s). Between the two-three walkers, there will always be someone available for your fur kids. In the very rare case we are not available, we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know.
Can I book dog walks and/or pet sittings with any dog walker/pet sitter?
What are the advantages of a dog walker versus daycare or a kennel?
For some dogs, doggie daycare may cause anxiety and stress from a new and ever-changing environment. Also, common dog illnesses can be contracted in this setting as well as the kennel environment. A dog walker and/or in-home pet sitter allows your dog to maintain their regular schedule in their comfortable, familiar environment, while providing them exceptional attention and care.
Do you have references?
Yes, we would be happy to provide you with references upon request!
Can you walk my dog at the exact same time every day?
We do our best to arrive to your fur kid at your preferred time but we do schedule visits within a two-hour timeframe. Because peak hours for mid-day dog walks are between 10:00am-2:00pm, we must schedule a two hour window for our arrival time with each client.
Do you offer discounts or have a referral program?
Yes! For each new client you send our way that sets up ongoing, regularly scheduled dog walks with us, we provide you with a $15 credit towards your next scheduled payment or service! If you refer someone that needs a one-time or occasional dog walk or pet sitting, we will provide you with a $5 credit!
