Happy Feet

Kathrin Simon

Even as a little girl animals were my hobby. Whether dogs, cats or rabbits.

I realized very early that I would like to work with animals professionally. Therefore I started my training as a veterinary assistant in 2002, which I successfully completed in 2005.

In 2007, I completed my training as a veterinary practitioner, among other things, to complement my specialist knowledge.

Since 2002 I have been caring for the most different animals.
In May 2015 I made my dream come true and opened my Animal Boarding House Happy Feet in Sandhausen.

In order to be constantly up to date and to improve my specialist knowledge, I regularly attend further training courses in the field of animal health and animal husbandry.




  • Acupuncture for dogs locomotor system
  • Acupressure/massage/reflexology therapy for animals and insight into Tellington Touch

  • Handling pets
  • Inhalation anaesthesia
  • Practice management and dietetics


Brix is the new addition to the family at the animal boarding house since 15.06.2020. He is a Bernard-Dog mix (Broholmer, Ridgeback) and will weigh approx. 46-56 kg when full grown. Brix is extremely loving, well behaved, eats well and is well behaved. We attend dog school twice a week. Of course, Brix is regularly presented to the vet and has all the necessary vaccinations and worming. In the future, Brix will be trained and work as a therapy dog, among other things. The prerequisite for for taking in your dog is that it is 100% compatible with both male and female dogs, as I can NO longer offer single dog care!



drop-off and pick-up times

There is no rest day in an animal boarding house, because all animals must always be well looked after.
But I treat myself to a "human time-out" on Sundays and holidays.
Pension guests can be brought and picked up from Monday to Saturday by appointment. Keeping appointments and respecting privacy is important to me in order to achieve the optimal posture with all the tasks that come up.

  • Monday through Friday: 08:00 to 19:30
  • Saturday: 09:00 to 13:00
  • Sundays and holidays: closed

In urgent or exceptional cases I also arrange special appointments outside the opening hours by arrangement.
