About Us

My name is Jim Bogle and I am the owner/operator of Happy on a Leash. I spent more than 20 years in retail management working 60-70 hours a week. I knew that between those long days at work and trying to keep up with my three daughters' activities, my pets, especially my dogs, were not receiving the attention and exercise they needed and deserved. As a life-long animal lover and pet owner, I often thought of starting my own pet care business. Finally, I decided it was time to stop thinking and start doing and opened Happy on a Leash.

The goal of Happy on a Leash is to provide high quality services that improve the lives of your pets. Whether you hire me to provide dog training, daily walks, potty breaks, playtime, or vacation care for your dogs, cats, birds, fish, or pocket pets, I am committed to making sure each animal is cared for in a professional, competent manner.

Because of this attitude, most of Happy on a Leash's business is from repeat customers and referrals; I am happy to provide references. For your peace of mind, I am bonded and insured and have successfully completed Pet Tech's Pet-Saver training course and I am certified in Pet CPR and Pet First Aid.

Happy on a Leash is based just outside of Garner in the Rand Rd./Highway 50 area; most of the clients I provide services to are in the Garner and Cleveland (40/42) areas. A few of the neighborhoods I currently serve are Trebor Meadows, Cleveland Springs, Tavernier, Heather Hills, Robinfield, Crest of Carolina, Dunhaven, Breezeway,  Everwood, Rand Meadows, Nottingham Forest, Highland Trails, Broadmoor, and Stoney Creek. If you aren't sure I provide services in your area, just contact me for more information.
