MEET THE TEAM

Bethany

Assistant Manager

Serving: Eagan, Burnsville, Apple Valley, Lakeville, Farmington, Rosemount, Savage, Prior Lake, Inver Grove Heights, Elko, Saint Paul, Minneapolis, and other South Suburbs.

Hi! I’m Bethany! I’m fur mama to Leia (2 year old chihuahua) & Cocoa (brown 17 pound kitty). My husband Travis and I love going to the dog park, breweries that have cider on tap, and playing board games — our fav is Smash Up! I’m an advocate for holistic health, essential oils, natural living, and currently going back to school to be a Nutrition Coach. My drinks of choice: decaf coffee, kombucha, ginger lemon tea. I’ve worked a LOT of other jobs, including: cheese curd fryer, a photographer, barista, Corn Roast server at the MN State Fair, chiropractic assistant, customer service rep, youth director at a church & chess teacher! My superpower is encouraging others and holding space for them to fully exist in the life they choose.

I’m so excited to be the Assistant Manager of Happy Tailz, and even more excited to get to know your pups through each of our walkers! I’d love to know what you love best about your pup!

Kasey

Animal Sitter

Serving: Saint Paul, Inver Grove Heights, Cottage Grove, South Saint Paul, Hastings and Other South Eastern Cities.

Hi I am Kasey! I’ve always been a dog lover at heart. I’ve adopted dogs all throughout my life and I couldn’t imagine living in a world without them! I’ll forever enjoy a dogs company, but I also specialize in doing nails! I received my nail technician license in 2019 and have been loving it ever since! I’m looking forward to spreading my love to animals other than mine. I can’t wait to meet all of them!

Mystique

Animal Sitter

Hi, my name is Mystique. I am currently a student, and when I am not studying, you can find me at the animal shelter volunteering or fostering! I also have a British Lab named Honey, and a gecko named Spyro. I am so excited to be working with Happy Tailz as I love spending time with animals, and I am using this opportunity to gain more experience and insight into working with animals in the future. As your pet sitter, I will ensure that your fur babies are given the most love and care. I look forward to having an amazing time with your fur baby!

Sage

Animal Sitter

Animal Sitter

Hello! My name is Sage! While I spend most of my time dancing, writing and working part-time, I absolutely love to be with pets. From small to large, furry friends to reptiles, I’m eager to assist. I’m absolutely ecstatic to be working with Happy Tailz and lending help to pet owners in need. Positivity is my specialty and I will always give each and every pet the utmost love and care.

Linda

Dog Walker

Serving: All of the Twin Cities

My name is Linda Mao, I’m 22 years old! I’m a college student at Normandale and I’m going to school to get my associate art degrees. I love trying new things out and exploring opportunities in life! The one thing I am honestly excited about this job is that I get to be around fur animals! I love dogs so much because they bring happiness to my life especially looking at their cute little puppy face!

Jake

Dog Walker

Serving Saint Paul and Minneapolis

Hello my name is Jake and I LOVE dogs! I myself have three dogs, a cattle dog, shih tzu mix and a shar pei. As long as I can remember I have always had a passion for animals and always knew my career path would lead to something involving animals. My first job was at a doggie day care and I knew at that very moment that this was indeed my passion. While the daycare is my start, my end goal is to become a veterinarian. Currently just starting my undergrad studies I am at least 7 years away from that goal and wish to spend that time working in a field that will surround myself with dogs and various other animals. Along those lines I am currently in the process of becoming a certified dog trainer. Currently I am shadowing multiple trainers to learn a variety of training techniques.
