Aloha!  I'm Kristy and the owner of Happy Houlas.  I'm a dental hygienist who decided to step away from the dental office to follow my passion of caring for others' furry family members. I've never known a day in my 35 years without dogs (ranging in size from Pomeranians to Rottweilers), so I'll be completely comfortable with your pet of any size or breed. Our family has also had fish, hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits, and a kitty over the years and even raised Monarch butterflies during our time in Hawai'i (which we'll continue here in Virginia once the return from migration). We love them all and look forward to caring for yours as we do our own.  

I'm also a military spouse and a mom to a 5 year old sassy little girl and 3 rescue doggies.  We have a Great Pyrenees mix, who is the matriarch of our pack, and a pair of Catahoula Leopard Dog mix siblings (hence the Happy Houlas name).


Our family loves animals, adventure and travel, so if I'm not taking care of your pets, you can typically find us on local trails with our little pack. 

Happy Houlas Dog Walking & Pet Sitting is our family's first step toward our long term goal of a larger scale pet care facility in our post military lives.  It's our family's dream that we take very seriously.  You can be 100% certain we will care for your pet as we do our own, and we are fully insured for your peace of mind.
