What motivated you to start Happy Tails ?

Animals have always been a passion of mine, I’ve worked with wild animals from as early as 1998. I’ve worked with the Pune Snake Park too. I’ve worked with animals like leopards,snakes,birds,etc and have pets of my own as well, 3 dogs and 3 cats.

 

What challenges have you faced ?

The biggest challenge is to convince people about the importance of professional pet training. They follow facebook forums, watch videos on youtube and think they know how to train a pet. What they don’t realize it all breeds are different and that the training video they’ve watched, might not work with their pet. We get called in only when there’s an issue and not in the early stages when it’s the most crucial.

 

Have you noticed any change in the mentality of pet parents ?

Certainly. More and more people are open and willing to call in professional trainers like us. The scenario is definitely changing.

 

Do you have any advice for new/aspiring pet parents ?

Think 100 times before you jump in the well. Getting a pet is a lifetime commitment!
