Happy Hounds News
April 2018

Be sure to give them ample time to eat breakfast prior to dropping your pup off in the morning. Dogs who miss the chance to eat their meal tend to get upset tummy and will throw up stomach bile. We've had quite a few coming in lately with breakfast and lunch in hand. Due to the excitement, it is very rare that any dog will eat promptly after arriving. We also want to make sure they have enough time to digest their food before getting rowdy with their buddies. This is to avoid the potential of bloat while also making sure they're able to hold down their breakfast. It's like eating a big meal and immediately going to run a marathon after. 

It's officially Spring and with that comes our Puppy Parents' favorite time of year, SALE TIME! We will be running a sale on Daycare AND Boarding passes for first dogs only from April 23rd through April 30th. As usual, feel free to stock up on passes as we will not be running another sale until Fall. Please be mindful as passes expire after one year from the purchase date. We do accept phone orders so if you'd like to purchase a pass, feel free to call, email or let us know at drop off so we can have the pass ready for you by pick up time. 

Our next class list for April - May has been announced! We'll be offering Basic Puppy, Basic Manners and Loose Leash/Impulse Control. Since every dog benefits from training, we'll also be offering a $50 off coupon to all pups who sign up for a class at Happy Hounds. Not only will this give you and your pooch something to bond over, but it will also help behaviors at daycare. Some pups just get so excited here and training them in their favorite place will help roll over commands as well as calming behaviors into this setting. For more details, keep scrolling!

Happy Hou nds' Dog of the Month
Meet Kodi

Kodi joined the Happy Hounds family in June 2015 at the age of 6 months. This girl is the most beautiful color a brunette can be. If only Clairol sold her tint in boxed dyes. 

Much like a typical lab, Kodi is full of personality! She wears her emotions on her sleeve, and they're always extreme versions. When she's happy, she's ecstatic. When she's sad, everyone feels it. When her mom moves the couch to a separate corner of the living room, her world comes to an end. When she's hungry... who are we kidding, she's ALWAYS hungry. Kodi is our feeding room shark. Even when she's fed first, she's constantly hovering with the occasional "I'm starving to death" bark and frantic trot to the feeding room door and back to her corner spot... just anything to get a glimpse, a whiff, of one more scrumptious crumb. 

After feeding, the charge and chant down the stairs to the basement where the tennis balls rest in their basket, just waiting to be drooled on. The second you pick a ball up, her eyes widen and the tap dancing begins. Though she isn't always the one to catch the ball, her effort is A+. And don't even get us started on her showmanship. On the occasion that she does catch the ball, Kodi victory trots throughout the basement, barking and thrashing the ball back and forth making sure all of her friends watch in envy. She will play ball as long as someone is there to throw it!
