              It is no secret that we are a city that loves our pets. As a dog owner, there are days when I suffer so much guilt knowing Brady is stuck at home. I have found that doggy daycare is a way to help make me feel better about being away.

              Happy Mailman is taking doggie daycare to a whole new level, providing an all day play experience for your dog. They differentiate themselves with large outdoor and indoor play areas, with an “open play” philosophy which allows dogs to socialize with one another while playing and tiring themselves out. Brady is one of those dogs that I thought could never tire out, but after a day spent at Happy Mailman, he was so tuckered out and exhausted!

              With summer coming, I am sure many of you are busy planning your vacations, so keep in mind that they also offer overnight boarding. I would definitely recommend Happy Mailman Dog Daycare and Dog Boarding to Austin dog owners!

              Like them on Facebook, to keep up to date on their latest specials and to check for pictures of your dog at Happy Mailman. Currently they are offering a FREE day of daycare, a free night of boarding and a free wash package for all new dogs that is sure to leave your dog exhausted and clean!

              Like, comment, or share this post for a chance to win one of three $100 gift cards to Happy Mailman that is good for any overnight, daycare, or grooming services. Winners will be chosen June 1 at noon.
