Professional & Caring

Happy Tails

My name is Lisa Olivo. I have been living here in our beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains for over 40 years. Many of those years, I spent commuting to my job with AT&T. The company decided to eliminate my job title and to contract out the services that I provided. I was tired of the rat race and decided it was time for me to enjoy the beauty of our surroundings.

Even after my worst commute day, I always felt it was worth it when I finally arrived home. Fortunately, I had thirty years under my belt and was able to retire, so it was goodbye to the commute wars, hello freedom to explore a career in a field that has always been nearest and dearest to my heart. Our business has grown and flourished over the last 20 years.

Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am an avid animal lover, constantly filling my home with many different furry friends. I decided to attend A Pet’s World Academy, in Loomis, CA.

We learned the proven methods of pet sitting, being professional, reliable, and trustworthy are the goals of an aspiring pet sitter. I was trained to pet sit many different types of animals, such as llamas, goats, horses, cows, iguanas, birds, bunnies, hamsters, snakes, turtles, tropical and pond fish, along with many different kinds of dogs and cats. It was a lot of fun and extremely informative. Our business has grown and flourished over the last 20 years. During this journey, I have found other avid pet lovers and assembled a wonderful group of caring individuals that can be trusted to care for your “Pet Family”.

The journey continues; however, we are going to focus mainly on our Dog Daycare, Grooming, and Lodging services. We will continue to serve our current pet sitting clients, but will not be taking new clients for Pet Sitting in your homes. I will continue to steer and guide the business and am still fully engaged in the quality of our Camp, Lodge, and Grooming services that we provide.

I am very excited and overjoyed to have someone that I have full confidence in and who shares my passion and commitment to excellent customer service to run the day-to-day operations of our Camp. She will be your friendly voice on the phone and dedicated team leader here. She is full of energy and positive hospitality. Please help me welcome Haley Crowder!

My name is Haley Crowder, manager here at Camp Happy Tails. I began work here in June of 2021 and have fallen in love with this incredible place. I have two degrees from University of California Santa Cruz and ten years of customer service experience. I have always had a deep love and passion for animals and am so excited to facilitate this wonderful space for these pups and to be a part of this team.  I am fortunate enough to drive our local Felton/Scotts Valley taxi in the mornings and get to spend quality time with all of our sweet dogs down in camp in addition to management. I will be your point of contact in all things scheduling and am happy to help meet the needs of your precious furry friends. I know they will love it here just as much as I do!
