My dog Tennessee loves going to Happy Dogs. She goes for both daycare and boarding. I love getting to check in on her on the live cam throughout the day and when she is being boarded I get daily emails with a photo of her and status of her meals. The team is super responsive and friendly when I email them and I trust that Tennessee is in good hands.

Happy Dogs is the best dog day care/ boarding experience! I have a very anxious pup and he loves everyone there and is always so excited to go to day care! He comes back totally pooped every time and I feel assured he’s well taken care of. Couldn’t recommend more highly!!

My dog Apollo absolutely loves Happy Dogs! I’ve dropped him off at the McCarren Park, Southside, and Manhattan locations and he has enjoyed all 3. You can tell the staff truly cares about making sure all the dogs have a fun and safe experience while they’re in their care. Apollo gets to socialize in a safe environment and play all day with all types of dogs. He gets excited as soon as we’re anywhere near their locations. The webcams they have set up are so fun to watch too. I highly recommend Happy Dogs to all dog parents looking for quality care.

My dog absolutely loves Happy Dogs and I never worry about her when she is in their care. I appreciate the video feed which makes it easy to check on her as well as the quick and reliable booking method. Thanks happy dogs!

Our puppy loves Happy Dogs! She literally drags us through the door she is so excited to play with her friends. The staff is very friendly, and clearly are great with dogs of all shapes, sizes and energy levels. Our puppy is about 1 year old, 50 lbs and super energetic. We watch her on the cam and she is having a great time. The interface is also really easy to use, making check-in and out a breeze. Definitely recommend!

Frankie loves Happy Dogs and so do we! The staff are very professional, quick to respond to questions/emails, it's a clean space and I love being able to check in on her via their webcam. Frankie comes here 1-2 times a week, and has been boarded here once as well with no issues. Would recommend to other pup parents!

Perfect for my puppy, he's always so tired when he's home

Definitely one of the most affordable daycares I've brought my dog to. He L O V E S Happy Dogs—so much so that I usually have to drag him home afterwards because he's sad to leave! The webcam is a great feature to check up on your pup and their hours are generous. Their little outdoor patio is also great, he can get some fresh air throughout the day (hard to come by in city day cares). Would recommend to any tired dog owner who wants a day off :)

We started bringing our puppy to Happy Dogs in April for once a week and we have nothing but good things to say about our experiences with them so far. They have been extremely accommodating to our few scheduling conflicts and our puppy absolutely loves it there. Also it's great being able to watch him on the live stream, it's always the highlight of my day. I highly recommend HD.

I cannot recommend Happy Dogs enough. Our dog is a three legged pit mix who is fearful of bigger dogs and strangers, so we were a bit concerned leaving him anywhere new for the weekend. However, the staff at Happy Dogs has been phenomenal. They kept him happy, engaged, and interactive with all the other dogs of all sizes, which has helped his anxiety about bigger dogs and other people. They also live stream everything during the day, which made us very comfortable whenever we wanted to check in on our dog. Happy Dogs has been a lifesaver for us, and I recommend anyone who needs a boarding site for their dog to go to Happy Dogs first. Thank you Happy Dogs!

Our pup Mosley started going to Happy Dogs in April when he was about 6 months old and we couldn't be more thankful to have Happy Dogs in our neighborhood. We live only a couple blocks away and HD has been a god send during this WFH period. Mosley gets so excited on HD days and comes home appropriately exhausted, which is very helpful to us. HD staff are extremely responsible, professional, and responsive. They are accommodating when possible but generally very strict with their policies, which we appreciate because we know that the policies are put in place to protect Mosley and the other pups. One piece of advice I would give to new pup owners bringing their dogs to HD for the first time is to give them a few visits to warm up to the experience. I think it took Mosley 3 or 4 visits before he felt at home there, he was a bit shy and hesitant at first. I would watch him on the video camera running away from other dogs and he would be hesitant on drop off days, which made me very worried at first because I really needed to be able to bring him to daycare. However, after the first few visits he would be ecstatic when he knew we were headed to HD and I would watch him on the camera running around to greet every dog like he was the mayor of the playroom.

The staff at Happy Dogs was incredibly kind - this review has nothing to do with the way my dog was treated - I’d give that 5 stars. When my brother and I both left our dogs at Happy Dogs while we were away, we were SHOCKED when we opened the web cam and saw how many dogs they squeezed into their tiny little boarding/day care area. It was smaller than my 1 bedroom greenpoint apartment and they had 20+ dogs romping around at a time. There was barely room for dogs to lie down without being trampled by the mob of dogs looking (unsuccessfully) for places to play. Mostly our pups just walked back and forth in the tiny room like humans pacing in a mental institution in the movies. For almost $100/night I was extremely disappointed in the accommodations and will not be bringing my dog back. He also came home with Kennel Cough (even though he is vaccinated against it) and took a few days to start acting like his old self. I’d look elsewhere and exhaust all other options before using Happy Dogs again.

This really is a happy place for dogs- mine pulls me towards their door even when I’m not planning on taking him in. It’s clean, I trust them to keep him happy, safe and calm and I love checking in on him throughout the day via the live stream web cam. So grateful Happy Dogs exists. Highly recommend.

This place is amazing my puppy was out of control I’ve even hired 2 trainers to help and nothing until I found this place Happy Dogs. Sophia loves this place she gets excited when I mention it and I see such a big difference in her. She’s more calmer and better at home. I love this place and the workers here are so nice they really take care of the dogs and any questions they respond really fast in which I love. Thanks again Happy Dog you guys are a life saver :)

I have been bringing my pup here for the past 4 months and have had the best experience. The employees know her personally and I know she's in good hands when she's there. Their member site makes it super easy to keep track of everything and I love snooping on my pup on the live feed.

The staff is amazing. They respond to all of my emails and are very flexible whenever I have a request or concern. Pick up and drop off is hassle free and everything is digital. My pup seems to be very happy there and I feel he is very well cared for!

My pup, Elvis, loves to be around all the dogs. He gets so excited to go to daycare once a week. I feel a lot more comfortable knowing that Elvis isn’t all alone during my long day at work. I really like the options they provide and you can pick what works for you and your pup in terms of daycare. The people there are always super helpful and responsive via email. I would recommend Happy Dogs Daycare to any dog parent.

Extensive registration form, make sure all the dogs are up to date on their vaccinations, and they set up a free day to take your dog to make sure they feel safe in the environment. My dog has so much energy and she’s always tired after daycare. They even have live cams set up if you want to keep tabs of your dog.

Happy Dogs lives up to it's name! If we get anywhere near this place, our dog gets excited. The staff is responsive both on email and phone, and their web site makes it easy to manage check in and check out.

We have two large dogs (50lbs and 60lbs) and they both love going to Happy Dogs. How do we know? They walk right up to the door, tails wagging. Happy dogs has been great to us as well. They have helped in a pinch when we needed a last minute board or day care. We get to check in on our pups throughout the day on their web cams and the team is hyper responsive if we have questions.

Great day care for my dog!! They are very responsive with emails and have safe protocols with COVID. Also, it's a very secure check in and check out process to ensure your dog is returned to YOU! :) Love the doggy cam as I can check get out during the day - she's always having a great time and staff treat the dogs well. Highly recommend :)

We have been taking our dog to Happy Dogs for a few months now and could not be happier. Our dog loves to go, and she gets to play all day -- she gets a lot of exercise in, which is especially nice now given how much time we spend at home with her. Happy Dogs is also very responsive when we need to communicate with them, and they are on top of food needs and the like. We also feel very secure about their safety procedures, the check-in/check-out process, and how they treat the dogs. Their live webcam is also a great touch for watching our dog while she is gone.
