Watch your dog play!

Here at Happy Trails Pet Spa, you can watch your dog have fun and play no matter where you may be.





Who's taking care of your pet?


Jim Bush




I am a former US Marine and a retired Engineer. My love for animals and desire to provide the best facility in the Rocky Mountain West has resulted in the construction of Happy Trails Pet Spa. I have loved, bred, shown, and trained dogs since my youth in central Iowa.


This facility is my dream. I want to provide the most comfortable, cleanest, safest, and most home like location for your pets boarding and grooming in Colorado.



Nealy Piazza




I am a kennel manager as well as the massage and acupressure therapist at Happy Tails. I am certified through the Rocky Mountain School of Animal Acupressure and Massage in both canine and equine Techniques, as well as Reiki.

I have been actively involved with horses and natural horsemanship for over 30 years and I was involved with the family dog kennel, Coblr Corgis, throughout grade school and high school.


My interest in animal wellness grew out of these experiences, and much of my college education revolved around animals physiology and nutrition.


Scott & Netessa Calahan





I have been working in pet kennels (not just for dogs), as well as washing and drying animals, from dogs and ferrets, since 2004. I have been a member of Happy Trails since 2009. I have a cardigan welsh corgi named Brock. I have a Bachelors in Psychology from the University of Northern Colorado.

Hi! I’m Kaylynn. I’m a native to this beautiful state. I like camping, hiking, and adventuring in my free time. I hope to move to the mountains someday. I have such a strong love for dogs and Happy Trails is the perfect place for me. I try to treat the dogs as if they were my own.

My name is Andy. I have worked at Happy Trails since 2014, so you could say I’m pretty familiar with all the regular dogs here. I have a beautiful lab mix named Cassiopeia, along with 3 other large dogs in the household.

Hi, my name is Kendra. I was born in Oklahoma but moved here in 2010. I am studying psychology at Colorado State University. My favorite type of dog is a Bernese Mountain Dog but in all reality I love all dogs.


Happy Trails is a perfect part-time job for me, it’s a big stress reliever after being at school all day.

Kennel Attendant


I am a retired veterinarian from North Carolina. I practiced small animal medicine for over 40 years then moved to Colorado to be with family.


I missed the interactions I had with the dogs and cats, so I came to Happy Trails to get my daily ‘doggie fix’.








Kennel Attendant


I was born in Colorado. I love sports and music. I want to go to college to become a Veterinarian. My favorite dog is an Italian Mastiff.








Receptionist and Kennel Attendant


I’m a Colorado native and have had a love for animals my entire life. I’m currently getting my business degree at Front Range and plan on getting certified in veterinary care and canine massage therapy. I have two dogs at home, Aries (Doberman Pinscher) and Bonnie (Hound Mix). Our favorite past time is spending the day outside and getting treats!








Kennel Attendant


I am studying biochemistry at Colorado State University. I plan to pursue a career in veterinary medicine in the future, so you could say I love animals. I have two Westies at home that I love whole heartedly. Being able to spend so much time around animals both at home and at Happy Trails is truly amazing. I am so happy to be here!








Kennel Attendant


I am pursuing a degree in business management and animal science. After high school I traveled to 10 different countries, yet my favorite thing in the world is still dogs. I hope to work with animals for the rest of my life!
