Happy pup manor is our go to spot for boarding our dog. Gabby and her crew are fabulous with him! We feel very comfortable leaving him in their care when we go away. He is always excited to see them, knowing he will get lots of love and playtime at their wonderful property. For a great (and safe) experience, you can count on happy pup Manor boarding.

We love Happy Pup Manor and Gabby. We always choose them for boarding our pup Franco. They have the best attention and I can rest assured that Franco is in the best possible hands. A huge perk is the valet service for pick up and drop off. I love that he has tons of supervised playtime and he’s always sad to leave the manor when his boarding is over.

Happy Pup Manor is a home away from home for our pup, Duke. After we adopted him we needed to find a place to have him trained. My son, Patrick researched several options and after talking to Gabby at Happy Pup Manor he was convinced.
Duke went for the 10 day training and came home a happy well trained pup. He is still a handful but what puppy isn’t. He is calmer and listens better than ever before. Gabby and her team of trainers treat your dog as their own. He has boarded there as well. He looks forward to his time boarding at Happy Pup Manor. He has plenty of supervised playtime, and minimal time in a crate. Gabby gives your dog the love she gives her own. He gets many nice extras i.e. bath & nails and you get videos for your peace of mind. He gets picked up and dropped off by professionals. What more could you ask for. I highly recommend Happy Pup Manor. They’re the best!

Our dog Buck is a very high energy 8 month old puppy. My husband was very skeptical that he could be trained. Gabby had him for two weeks and he came back a well-behaved puppy! He is still is energetic self, but she showed us he does have impulse control. He does not pull us along on walks, he sits and stays and he will stay on his “bed” until we tell him to come. It’s amazing. This was the best thing we have ever done with any of our dogs!

Gabby and her team at Happy Pup Manor did a fantastic job with Wrigley. As a 11 week pup is, he is always chewing and not wanting to listen. They worked with him on being more attentive, listening to commands better, only chewing on toys and less of fingers, the socialization with other dogs, and having productive walks. After Wrigley’s two week stay he came back a better pup. Would highly recommend them and I know Wrigley can’t wait to go back!

Our puppy went straight from our breeder to training at Happy Pup Manor and we couldn’t be happier! Gabby was always quick to respond to questions and available to talk if needed. Happy Pup Manor picked up our precious puppy from the breeder and cared for him for 10 days of training. We knew our puppy was getting love and attention from Gabby. She sent us videos and pictures daily of our puppy. The training was done well! Our puppy’s transition to our home went with GREAT ease! He was crate trained and he loves his crate (never whines or cries). He was potty trained and yet to have an accident in the house. Gabby also trained him to know his name, come, sit, stay, down, and play dead 😊. Our puppy was always around other dogs at HPM and it helped him to be socialized. He is always calm and confident around other dogs. We would definitely use Happy Pup Manor again and also for boarding for vacations. It was money well spent.

My clients that have used their services, have been more than happy.

Gabby and her team are amazing! They truly love what they do and it shows! We sent our 11 week old Sheepadoodle, Luna, to Gabby for a 10 day training. Luna is super sweet but was very much a biter and herder. I would have been so happy if Luna came back not biting as much but the work Gabby did with Luna was more than we could have ever hoped for! Luna follows many commands and listens to what we tell her (for the most part)! She still is a puppy after all. Her biting is all but gone aside from chew toys. She sends updates about her progress and reassurance that she is having fun and learning. She truly puts you at ease. When it’s time for your pup to come home, she spends quite a long time showing you how to continue the training she’s worked with your pup on in your home. She also picks up and drops off your puppy. It’s a huge bonus!

Gabby is super flexible with schedules too. We had to adjust our days and she was very accommodating.

Most of all, our puppy was cared for at Gabby’s as though she was here at our house.

If you are debating doing puppy training, I thoroughly recommend Gabby and Happy Pup Manor. We plan to use Gabby for all our boarding needs!! She is a gem and it shows how much pride she has in what she does!!

I sent my 6-month-old Australian labradoodle puppy to HPM’s board and train program. I am absolutely thrilled with the results! Gabby worked on all the basics plus she focused on issues that were specific to my dog. I was out walking her today and we actually received compliments on how well behaved my dog was! That was a first, for sure. Thanks Gabby!

Hands down the BEST experience for us and our 6 month old mini Goldendoodle puppy!!!
I had countless friends recommend Gabby and based of all the positive reviews, I decided to contact her. Being first time puppy owners, we knew it was going to be a lot of work but had no idea how to manage it and where to even start with age-appropriate training. Bailey had all the typical puppy behaviors: nipping, biting, over-excitement, jumping on people, and the one that impacted our family the most, chasing and jumping on our kids, who were becoming terrified of her!! She displayed some resource guarding with her bully sticks and toys where she would growl at us when we went near her. She also was very scared of other dogs due to minimal socialization and an incident where another dog attacked her at 4 months :(. Needless to say, we were skeptical how Gabby would handle all of these challenges with Bailey.

After the 10-day board and train, Gabby met with our family and brought home our sweet transformed pup. And when I say transformed, I mean completely, amazingly, transformed!! Gabby showed us all of the basic manner commands Bailey was taught, but more impressive to us was how well-adjusted, HAPPY and well-mannered she came back!

Bailey’s been back now for 2 weeks and I purposely waited a couple of weeks to write this review just in case it was temporary and the “magic” would wear off and she would revert back to her old puppy ways. I’m so happy to report that she is still amazing and perfect!! We have been consistent with what Gabby taught us and our sweet Bailey is so well-mannered and has NO resource guarding (bully sticks, food, treats, toys) AT all!! We can literally tell her to drop anything and she does!! She is now friendly with other dogs and walks so nicely on the leash (no pulling!!)

We don’t know how Gabby and her team does it but they are simply the BEST!! They truly have a gift and it was worth every penny!! Even Bailey loves Gabby so much that she cried and whimpered when she left. Thank you Gabby and Happy Pup!! We would give you a 10-star rating if we could!!!

Happy Pup Manor is a home away from home for my doodle. Gabby understands what it means to provide a ‘home-like’ environment for dogs. They know the dogs not just by name but understand their personalities and their requirements thoroughly. They pay attention to detail and all special requests ( my dog had an ear infection and I didn’t want him to swim or get his face and ears vet) are catered to. The regular photo and video updates are the highlight of the day ☺️ I am absolutely stress free when I am traveling because of HPM- The best place for your pooch.

A home away from home for my doodle. The reason why I can travel stress free is because HPM looks after my pet the same way as I do. They cater to special requests and make it a point to understand each dog and their requirements. Couldn’t have found a better place for my dog.

Alexandra Lippert

We sent our puppy here a week after we brought her home, knowing we were in a season where us training her would be very difficult. Gabby and the entire HPM staff does AMAZING work. Maudie came home to us so well-trained and the foundation Gabby laid for us to work with was truly incredible. SO worth it – highly recommend Happy Pup Manor!!

Our golden doodle Cosmo was trained by Gabby at Happy Pup Manor in 2018 and has been back to board twice while we were on vacation. We absolutely trust the care, love, and attention given to Cosmo by the staff at Happy Pup Manor. We love the door-to-door service, the picture and video updates, and the bath Cosmo gets before he returns home. We have recommended Happy Pup Manor to several friends who have also brought their puppies for boarding and training. We can’t say enough about the great service we have experienced.

Our two 66 pound goldendoodles were getting unmanageable to take walks. They both attended the 10 day board and train and Gabby taught them to walk nicely. She even curbed their excessive barking and jumping. After 10 days she brought them home and then spent time training us! Her facility is absolutely gorgeous! Not a kennel at all, it’s a home with huge yards for them to play in. My Cooper and Sawyer will stay at the Happy Pup Manor when they need boarding again. Thank you Gabby and your team.

Danni Webber

My pup and I love Happy Pup! She’s done the 10 day training program as a puppy, as well as boarding several times when I’m out of town. Very happy with both. She always comes home exhausted from playing with all her new friends!

Gabby and her team are my #1 go to for training and boarding. Gabby helped us pick out Cody and took him at 10 weeks for training. Cody stayed in her care for 28 days. We received daily pictures and/or videos. After 28 days she delivered Cody back to us and stayed as long as needed to teach my daughter and I all the commands that Cody learned. We even received a custom graduation video! My husband comments all the time on what a great walker he is. He walks right at our side and never pulls. He never jumps on guests at the door. Training early on is such a key to a well behaved dog and Gabby helped us with that. Happy Pup now is my go to for boarding Cody. I love that they come and pick him up and drop him off as we are a busy family. That service is priceless. He knows as soon as the black minivan pulls into the driveway he is going to see Gabby and her team. I honestly do not worry when we are away when he is at Happy Pup Manor. We never had a dog before Cody and honestly I was concerned how we would know what to do. Gabby is a solution for training, boarding and general advice. We would 100% recommend Gabby and the Happy Pup Manor Team!

Happy Pup Manor is #1 with our family of 2 mini Goldendoodles, Cooper and Barney. Copper participated in the 10 day training and Barney will soon have his 10 day training program. We are grateful to Gabby and her team in teaching Cooper his manners! We have also boarded both pups together. We are stress free when they stay at Happy Pup Manor. We know they have plenty of room to roam and they are active, not just sitting in a kennel all day. We love Happy Pup so much we drive 4 hours to board them when we travel for extended periods of time!❤

We were looking for somewhere to board our Yorkie for an extended vacation, and some friends recommended Happy Pup Manor. Our Yorkie is pretty strong willed and had some behaviors we didn’t love, so we decided to have Gabby do some training with her in addition to the boarding. Some of our issues were pulling during walks, not being able to “stay” so she would get out of our door when we opened it, and not coming when we called her. When we got home, Gabby brought our dog back home and spent over an hour with us going over her new training. We were blown away at what she had accomplished in just under two weeks! It’s now over a year later and our dog is still so well trained! I never thought I’d be able to walk her and enjoy it, but she will walk next to me at “heel.” She stays in her bed now when we give her the command, and she comes right away when we call and give her a treat! I highly recommend Gabby for training and boarding!

Our 5 and a half month old labradoodle, Daisy, went to Gabby to be trained for 10 days when she was 10 weeks old. On Daisy’s return, Gabby spent over an hour with us in our own home teaching us how to continue with the training at home and how to be consistent in our commands. Gabby definitely laid down a great base for us to build upon. Daisy was also very skittish of other dogs and people when we first got her, but she returned a self confident puppy who loves playing with other dogs and humans! We have since used Happy Pup Manor for boarding on separate occasions and Daisy is always happy to go and we love the photos and videos that we receive while we are on vacation. We know Daisy is having a good time. Included with her stay is free pick up and return as well as a bath on the day she comes home. Those perks definitely add to the value of Daisy’s stay. Overall, we would highly recommend using Happy Pup Manor for training or boarding your dog.

Gabby and her team far exceeded our expectations. We have a whole new dog. I don’t know how 10 days of training can change a puppy this much! Most valuable though, was the hour of time my family spent with Gabby learning how to continue training our golden doodle puppy on her own. Seriously this is the best money I’ve ever spent.

Photo 1: Gabby texted us photos of our dog throughout the weeks and kept us updated on how training was going.

Photo 2: we attended the hour long consultation and training with a 10-year-old and Four-year-old. Gabby was fantastic in helping her understand how to train the dog and also setting some reasonable expectations.

We loved working with Gabby, but more important…our puppy LOVES her! We sent Kallee to HPM to help with leash work, biting and the other basics. She came home, so sweet, way less nippy (she’s still a pup after all) and so good on the leash. After her stay, Gabby personally drove her home and spent well over an hour training us to keep up with her work. We feel so lucky to have found such a great place for Kallee and for us. Gabby is just so great with dogs!
