Owner, Happy K9 Self-Serve Dog Wash & Grooming
Originally a financial planner with a securities license, Tammy Denison switched careers when she made the move from Plano to Fort Worth to be with her husband, Tim, and opened Happy K9 in 2012. “I’d rather deal with people’s dogs than their money,” jokes Tammy. “I’m so grateful for the opportunity I have to serve dogs and dog owners. This is the best job!” In addition to her furbabies, Tammy has three human children who keep her busy with sports and activities. Tammy is active with charitable causes, and serves on the Board of the White Settlement Chamber of Commerce.

Says Kyndal, “It feels good being part of a business that is so involved in the community; it definitely gives me a sense of accomplishment. I am proud to work for Happy K9!”
