To all my dog lovers, my name is Shawn Davis. I'm the owner and the one who started Happy Paws! I started Happy Paws because probably like you, I LOVE dogs. I wanted to open a daycare/kennel where not only the dogs felt welcome, but where their owners felt welcome, too. When I opened Happy Paws, I owned a chocolate lab with special needs. Beau was not only blind, but was also a dwarf. Beau was my inspiration to make Happy Paws where I would want to be a customer myself. He passed away the summer of 2016 at the age of 4 (cancer sucks!). Despite losing him so early in his life, Beau is still with us at Happy Paws; he is not only the logo, but also the reason why I do what I do daily. In my free time I enjoy building rustic furniture and tinkering around with anything I can get my hands on. I also now own another chocolate lab, Kali, that always needs to be licking something! Kali also has a tripod sister, Gem, who has three legs and the two of them are the lights of my life. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read about my journey and I hope to meet you and the lights in your life in the near future!
My name is Clare and I’ve been a part of the Happy Paws team since the summer of 2016. Nothing makes me happier than working with your pups day in and day out. Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to take care of them every day! I adopted my own dog in April of 2017. He is a one and a half year old Australian Cattle dog mix named Kyle. He is as smart and sweet as can be and enjoys coming to work with me almost every day! In my down time I enjoy hanging out with my nieces and nephew, cooking, and spending as much time outdoors as possible. I hope you love Happy Paws as much as Kyle and I do!
Kayla has been working with dogs professionally since 2015 and has been a part of the Happy Paws family since May 2016. She owns her adorable, 3 year old pit bull named Rupert who loves playing fetch and going for walks. In her free time Kayla likes to work out at CrossFit, watch The Office, and go for walks with Rupert. She is currently going to school to become a secondary teacher specializing in business and marketing. She hopes to always continue to work with dogs on the side.
