Meet The Staff

Family and Locally Owned Since 2011

Page Dowdy - Owner

Page has been working with animals since 2004 but has been an extreme animal lover since childhood. She is married to Will Dowdy and has two beautiful daughters who all share her love and passion for animals. They live on a 10-acre farm along with their 9 dogs, 3 cats, Appaloosa horse, 3 goats, 2 sheep, 4 donkeys, 2 pigs, 2 ducks, free range chickens, and 15-year-old tortoise.
After working as a groomer in Cullman and Birmingham for 7 years, Page definitely knew she had found her dream job!
In 2011 she opened the doors to her very own grooming shop, Happy Tails Pet Grooming. The business grew quick and it wasn't long before she needed more space. So in 2015 she opened up her home to her grooming clients and started Cullman's very first in-home boarding service. After three years it was time to start looking for something more permanent.
So here we are today with the two businesses combined. With lots of hard work, Happy Tails Groom & Board opened its doors in the fall of 2018. Page and her staff offer a combined total of over 105 years of experience in the pet industry! They are there 7 days a week to make sure your pets are getting the best possible care and comfort around!

Tracey Butts

Office Manager

Tracey has been in the animal care business since 1987.
What does she love about her job?
I love working with the fur babies and seeing their sweet faces as they come through the door. I enjoy watching them grow from beautiful puppies to happy dogs. It makes my outlook on life better. I have 11 babies of my own, 9 dogs and 2 cats. They make my life complete.

Stephanie Spears

Professional Groomer

Stephanie has worked for Happy Tails since March 2017 and has worked in the veterinary field since 2004. Loving and caring for animals has always been a part of her life. She lives in Fairview with her family and currently owns 5 dogs, 4 horses, and a cat.
"The relationship that I develop with the fur babies that I groom, new and old alike, is my favorite part of my job. I also love learning to do new or different types of haircuts and am usually up for a challenge."
