“We can’t say enough great things about Nora and Hayes Happy Dog! After trying other dog daycare facilities in the area, we chose to stick with Nora because she provides more personal and attentive services that suit both us and our dog. Our dog Luna (a 1 1/2 year old Australian cattle dog mix) goes to daycare two days a week and she absolutely loves it. Not only does Luna get a lot of exercise and play-time, but she has also gained important social skills and greatly improved her pack mentality. It is evident that Nora is extremely invested in all of the dogs that she cares for. In addition to daycare services, we have relied on Nora for boarding services and training classes. Nora has a personalized approach to training–she gets to know/understand both you and your dog and tailors her training to meet the needs and learning style of both you and your dog. Luna is a much more obedient and well-behaved dog due to Nora’s help. We couldn’t recommend Nora more!”

“Nora knows dogs. She is a breeder of beautiful retrievers and will put her wealth of knowledge to work in caring for your pet. She quickly sizes up each boarder’s temperament and bases the dog’s routine during its stay on her assessment We board our older, eccentric miniature poodle with her –he does not always do well with boarding, He was a little balky initially; Nora was attentive to his particular quirks and communicative with us until he settled in. Your pet will be in a safe, clean, thoughtfully organized environment during his/her stay. I recommend this business without hesitation.”

“Nora was vey helpful as we had just adopted our first dog. We sent our dog to day care twice a week with her and saw a huge improvement with him.”

“I have known the owner, Nora Hayes, for many years! She not only boards dogs, but also offers day care for our 4 legged loved ones! She has 20+ years in the canine business- training, breeding and boarding and I trust her implicitly to take care of my 2 pups. Her knowledge goes well beyond canine care! If you are in need of care for your pups, please call Nora and book the reservation!”

“I have brought my dog to Nora for training, day care and overnight boarding for more than four years. She has a sound, common – sense approach to training that helped me help my very anxious dog move past his fears to enjoy life. I am always comfortable leaving him for a day or a week, knowing that he will be safe and well cared for with Nora.”

“My dog has been going to Nora for training, daycare and boarding for 7 years – she is wonderful with dogs and really helped my rescue dog become a family dog!”
