Happy Tails Pet Services in Austin is a small business owned and operated by Sean Showalter. Currently we offer dog walking, dog boarding and doggie day trips with hopes of adding more services such as training, sitting and a pet taxi in the future.
Sean got his start dog walking in Austin in early December 2017 working for another dog walking company. He quickly discovered that he had a real knack and love for dogs and decided he would start his own business. A few months later, Sean began branching out on his own. His current goals are to become a certified dog trainer and is actively pursuing his education.
Sean has a German Shepherd named Star who is awesome and often tags along on dog walks. She's super friendly and get's along with all dogs and people.
Sean is a volunteer at the Austin Animal Center and has volunteered at Austin Wildlife Rescue in the past.
When not walking dogs, you can find Sean, a singer/songwriter, gigging around town. Check out his site at www.seanshowalter.com.

We plan on adding more services in the future, like pet sitting and dog training.

Technology today has made booking pet services much quicker and easier. Utilizing your mobile device, you can now book a walk in seconds. So why choose a small company where you may have to spend a little more time to set up an appointment?
Something to consider is that you are giving a stranger access to your home. You are also trusting someone whom you've never met with your dog, which may cause your dog some stress. If it were me, I would want to know my dog walker and see some testimonials validating them. Trust is earned, not given.
