Merry Pets was a game changer for my wife and I! Our 4-year-old boxer was clearly spending his days wandering around the house and chewing up everything in sight! When we took him on hikes, it was humiliating to have to apologize to every other person on the trail after Charlie Brown barked ferociously, even though he’s always been harmless! It only took Merry a few months to properly socialize Charlie Brown and now he’s a delight on the trails and makes friends regularly, not to mention he’s quite as a cucumber when we get home from work and hasn’t chewed up anything but his toys in a long time! Highly recommend Merry Pets to anyone in the Greater SLC area!

Merry Pets is the most dog friendly, convenient and best dog hiking company in Salt Lake City. My dog comes home exhausted and happy every time. Merry is so loving and good with my dog, I know he is safe with her. My dog is so excited to see Merry when she comes that I am starting to worry my dog likes Merry more than me. 😉

We could not be more pleased with the services from Merry Pets. For over a year now, Merry has walked our Boxer individually or on group hikes. She is more than accommodating to our schedules, and often we are set up for a month at a time. Our Boxer, Chewbacca, loves Merry and her team so much that when the car pulls up, his tail starts to wag. We trust her with our four-legged child. Grade = A+++

I have been using Merry Pets for almost a year now, and I have been beyond happy with the service. I am a bit of a control freak, especially where my dogs are concerned, so it takes a lot to earn my trust. Speedie and her crew take care of all the dogs as if they were their own—I always know my dogs are in great hands when I am away!
