Happy Tails is open 24/7/365 for drop off and pick up. Yes, we truly never close!

We want your dog to feel like Happy Tails is a home away from home with aproximately 12 hours of play a day in 8,000 sq feet of inside fun and 21,000 sq feet of outside fun on Prostyle Astroturf. All this and more is what your dog gets while boarding at Happy Tails along with personalized feeding with your own food and any needed medication administration. The dogs eat and sleep in their crate to receive a good night’s rest after a full day of play.

In addition to lots of love and attention throughout the day, your dog will be checked over from the tip of their nose to the last hair on their tail twice a day to ensure a safe, comfortable stay.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Newf, the Newfoundland, began his ventures at Happy Tails 11 years ago when Steve and Debee kept dogs in their home. So, when the big facility opened, Newf was one of the first to set foot inside. He boards on many occasions and I never worry that his every need is not being met. The staff is loving and caring. He is, in fact, one lucky dog to have experienced Happy Tails.

My name is Calle and Happy Tails is THE BEST! I have been coming here everyday since I was born, and my brother Forbes was the very first dog at Happy Tails when it opened! I am very particular and everyone has always taken perfect care of me!

Happy Tails is the BEST home away from home for Posh & Dakota! Whether they are at Happy Tails for daycare or boarding we never worry, as we know they are receiving all the love, care and affection that they receive at home.
Dan & Sandy Johnson, HTI guest since 2003
Nellie has attended Happy Tails since its opening. This is the best daycare facility in the Greater St. Louis area. All dogs are always under the watchful eyes of human caretakers who know and understand dogs and look out for their well-being. I highly recommend Happy Tails to all who ask where I got such a sweet dog.

Hershey has been coming to Happy Tails for almost 9 years and is well know to the staff. He comes in the door tail wagging and leaves the same way, content and tired! The facility is always clean and kept up to a high standard.
