Why HP

Happy Paws is the number one name in dog care for all of the greater Washington DC area. Our goal is to provide an exceptional experience for you and your dog through highly personalized visits, an ever growing knowledge of pet care, and commitment to treating each and every dog that walks through our door as if they were our own.

We are extremely passionate about providing each and every one of our canine guests with a visit that has been personalized just for them. The low dog to people ratio that Happy Paws prides itself on allows us to design our services to address each and every client’s individual needs. The highly skilled Happy Paws team takes great pride in our attention to detail and will indulge and pamper your pet each time they walk through our front door. We understand that dogs, like people, are all different and we build each Happy Paws visit around that philosophy.

We have created an environment where you can relax knowing that your dog is having fun as well as receiving the highest quality care available. We are truly an Urban Canine Country Club.


We are committed to bringing you the best in dog care through our continued education in this constantly growing field. Our weekly staff meetings and informational handouts allow us to keep up to date with all things dog related. We are devoted to comparing the most cutting edge research and techniques to the older ways of thinking that served as a foundation for the pet care industry.

The staff at Happy Paws is more than willing to go above and beyond to ensure that every stay is a safe, happy, and healthy one. The satisfaction we find in our work has enabled us to develop a relationship built on trust with our customers, human and canine alike. At Happy Paws we truly care for each and every dog we meet, and even the ones we have not met yet. You can see the evidence of this yourself when your dog is dragging you from a block away to get to our front door.
