October 2018


Quite arguably the best month of the year. We're super excited to announce the upcoming Happy Hounds events for this month - it's going to be a busy one for us!

First and foremost, the Happy Hounds October Birthday Party will be held on October 15th. All pups are welcome to attend the party but if your pooch has an October birthday, they will be our honorary guests for the day! Of course every party consists of cake and photos. You bring the pooch, we'll bring the paw-taaaay.

Beginning on Monday, October 22nd, our day and night passes will be on sale. This sale will only last from Monday, October 22nd through Friday, October 26th. Don't forget to mark your calendars, set your alarms and stock up on pooch passes! As with any sale, we will be accepting phone orders. 

Second fun event will be our very own Costume Contest and Party held in the Happy Hounds parking lot. Bring the whole family from 12pm to 3pm on October 27th to celebrate with us! We will be passing out prizes for best costume as well as tasty food, some for the humans(catered by  Thomas' Catering) and the pups(catered by  Three Dog Bakery). If you plan on packing up the pups and kids to join us for this fun event, please RSVP so we can better estimate the amount of people who are attending.

Lastly, our annual Howl-o-ween party for the pups will be held on two separate days. Schedule your pooch for daycare on either Tuesday, October 30th or Wednesday, October 31st. All pups will be dressed up(in your costume or ours), pose for photos, chow down on some cake and bob for healthy snacks in kiddie pools. SPACES WILL BE LIMITED.

Meet Scout

Scout, a lab mix, joined the Happy Hounds family in November 2013 at the age of two.

Her mornings are scheduled down to the second. Even her slow putz into the stairwell is timed and deliberate..ly slow. Once in, she's often faced with the same daunting question, "do you wanna go ou'side?", to which she normally responds with a huff and shake of her head while shoving her face into the door jam to playroom one. In fact, on days which are too hot or too cold for outside access, Scout is often the one dog who is finally casually strolling to the outside door as we're vigorously working to herd the pups inside. She's always late to the party. So late that I'm not really sure you can consider it fashionable. 

Though it's no secret one of Scout's favorite pass-times is lounging in comfort or basking in the warm sun, she does have a few sure-fire ways to get her in the mood for play. She absolutely LOVES small dogs. The smaller the better. Nothing gets her into a playful mood quite like a little dog happily prancing over to play. It never gets old watching her rear up and dramatically puppy bounce at the feet of one of her little buddies. When all else fails, we bust out the toys. Scout, howvere, doesn't want those generic tennis balls or kongs. No, Scout wants an empty bottle to pounce, thrash and trot around with.

Once pick up rolls around, we have to peel Scout off her throne and cheer her on every step of the way to the red gate, in order to leash her up. Her parents are always curious as to how she spent her day and how refreshing her expensive nap really was.

All party guests must arrive to daycare prior to 10am.

All pups attending daycare/boarding for the day will have plenty of snacks to munch so leave lunch at home unless necessary. We will be serving cake as well as bobbing for carrots and Cheerios. If your pooch has a costume, bring it in! Every pup will have a chance to dress up, in their costumer or ours. 

If your pooch has a standing reservation for Tuesday or Wednesdays, you do NOT need to reserve a spot as your pup is already on the roster for that day.

Please do not book for both Tuesday, 30th and Wednesday, the 31st daycare unless your pup really needs daycare for both days. The reason we are doing two dogs is to assure we have enough room for all the pups who want to party hardy with their buddies,
