Our aim at Happy Hounds is for your pet to feel comfortable, safe and relaxed in their new temporary surroundings. Our kennels are kept clean and sanitary. Runs are covered, and we have block walls between kennels to make your pet feel safe and secure. A 6 ft fence surrounds the property and the owner lives on site. We have raised beds inside and out and encourage you to bring your pets favorite bed or blanket. Our kennels are warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Runs range from 4ft, 5ft, and 6ft wide, all runs are 6ft long inside and 10ft outside, plenty of room for multiple pet families. Two large family dogs fit comfortably in my 5ft wide kennels. It is a good idea for owners to bring the food and treats their dog is used to eating to avoid an upset tummy.

Vaccinations required are: Rabies, DHLP & Parvo, Bordatella (kennel cough). Pets will be checked on arrival for fleas and ticks and will be treated accordingly. Medicine can be administered if necessary. Physical exercise and mental stimulation is very important to your pets state of mind. Pets have a good run and play several times a day in our grassy paddocks. Social animals, with your permission, may play with friends of similar size and temperament.

All playtimes are strictly supervised. Dogs who would rather not play with others will enjoy some one on one time with their human friend.

There is no place like home but we hope your pets stay with us will be enjoyable and you will feel at ease leaving your family friend with us at Happy Hounds. Photos of your pet having fun can be sent throughout their visit, so you can relax and enjoy your vacation knowing they are having a good time.
