Meet Angela, Owner
Since 2010, Angela has been providing professional dog walking and pet sitting services. She founded Oh Happy Dog! in 2015, devoting herself to the well-being of San Diego’s fur kids. As a young child growing up on a ranch in Vista, CA caring for many animals including several pups, her love for animals blossomed. In her youth, Angela was involved with 4-H for nine years where she cared for animals and participated in horse shows. While attending college at San Diego State University, she volunteered with the local animal shelter and also became a foster for Pitbull Rescue. This allowed her the opportunity to spend time socializing, exercising, and providing TLC to all breeds and sizes of canines. Working with the shelter enhanced her realization that she had a deep passion to pursue a career where she was enriching the lives of animals.
Upon graduating college in May 2010, Angela established San Diego Critter Care, a professional pet care business. After an amazing year and a half of providing pet care services in San Diego, her husband was accepted to a doctoral program at Western Michigan University. This opportunity took Angela to Kalamazoo, Michigan from 2011-2015 where she established, Fido’s Choice Kalamazoo, providing her pet care services to families all over the county. While in Kalamazoo, Angela also volunteered with Animal Rescue Project where she was a member of their fundraising committee.
Because of the incredible and rewarding experience she had running both of her businesses in different parts of the country, Angela is happy to be back in her hometown of San Diego doing what she loves and does best. She truly enjoys every moment she spends caring for her sweet fur pals and building friendly, trusting relationships with their families. Angela personally manages the daily operations of the business such as initial consultations, setting up schedules, and most importantly, providing care for her furry friends.
