Welcome to Happy Tails Resort.

Welcome to Happy Tails Resort, Norfolk's newest upscale dog boarding, dog daycare and dog grooming facility!  Our facility is now 18,000 square feet and has a large indoor dog pool. Forget the days of cages, Happy Tails Resort and Aquatic Center offers many of the comforts of home. Our facilitiy offers suite boarding, complete with custom made beds, doors with windows, recessed lighting and piped in music. Our dog daycare play areas consist of three large indoor play areas for the large dogs and small dogs, two large outdoor yards and an indoor pool (which allows us to allow swimming year round). The small dogs now have their very own building and outdoor playground! Happy Tails provides owners a safe environment for your dogs to exercise and to socialize with other dogs.

About me (The chick in the photo). After growing up and living in Texas for 40 years, I ventured out east working with a major software company. I traveled extensively for the past 20 years with jobs and never felt at ease in boarding my dogs. It was mainly because I felt guilty staying in beautiful hotels, knowing my dogs (if in a kennel) would be behind a wire cage on a cold floor. I always relied on a pet sitter, but it's tough finding someone that you can trust or find someone willing to stay at your house.

Six years ago, I left corporate America, and started Happy Tails Resort.  My dream was to create a home like atmosphere and an unique experience for my clients (humans and dogs). It has been an amazing journey!
