Happy first full month of Fall!! 

We've recently received quite a few calls regarding whether or not pups are required to remain current on the Canine Influenza vaccine. The answer, in short, is yes. As our long term clients are aware, we began requiring the vaccine October 1st of 2018. Due to the consistent cases in and around our area, we'd rather air on the side of caution. Though the vaccine itself is much like the human flu shot, making any dog still susceptible of contracting the canine flu, it does help to not only limit exposure but also symptoms. 

On a more exciting note, mark your calendars! Aside from our monthly birthday party, held on Monday, October 21st, we'll also be celebrating Howl-o-ween with a two day binger-bash! Reserve your pup for daycare on Wednesday, October 30th or Thursday, October 31st. Not only will the pups spend the day romping with their favorite pooch pals, but all pups will be dressed up for a fun Howl-o-ween inspired photo shoot! If you pooch has a costume feel free to bring it along! We do have quite a few costumes for the pups who forgot theirs at home. Please do not book for both days unless your pooch absolutely requires daycare for both. We want to assure we can get in as many pups as possible to this fun event. We will have plenty of space available Monday, Tuesday and Friday of that week. 

Even more exciting... You've all been asking and it's time we deliver, our Fall Sale will run Monday, October 28th through Friday, November 1st, We will only be running sales on first dog daycare and boarding passes. Feel free to give us a call to order over the phone or even shoot us an email so we can have passes ready for payment when you pick up your pooch from daycare. As always, passes last for 1 year from date of purchase. We will be sending a reminder email a few days before the sale begins.

Dog of the Month
Meet Pearl

Pearl, an Aussie mix, joined the Happy Hounds family in November 2016 at the age of 7 months.

Though she can be extremely sweet, sensitive and somewhat shy, when the toys come out, it's game on! The only thing this little eye patched ninja will steal besides your heart is a ball. 

Arguably, her favorite way to play fetch is the high toss for her to show off her aerial moves. Pearl is quite the acrobat! She can jump 5 feet in the air at a standstill while also completing a perfect somersault in the air and STILL managing the catch the ball.
The rufferees have spoken; 10/10 for technique, form and flare. We can't wait to root for her at the upcoming Summer Olympics in 2020.
