Happy Hounds News
September 2016

As Summer comes to a close, the season of change begins. While you're packing your kids up and sending them off to begin their new school year, don't forget about the furkids! If you'd like to revise or schedule a standing reservation so Fido has set weekly appointments, let us know. We'd be happy to have that scheduled for you. We will also be running our Back to School sale  September 5th through September 19th and will be for daycare passes only. As always, be sure to stock up on daycare days, your pooch will thank you. 

While you and your family adjust to the fall scheduling change, here at Happy Hounds, we're making our own changes! Beginning September 1st, we will be open 7am to 7pm 7 days a week! That's right, we're extending our weekend hours to better accommodate you and your furry children's busy weekend schedules. Because of the longer weekend hours, we will no longer be offering weekend passes. You certainly may use up any weekend passes you have left.

Another exciting announcement for September 1st, MC Pet Concierge will be opening their doors to their new location conveniently at  1013 S Main St (Colonial Vets previous location), only a few doors down from Happy Hounds. For the whole month of September, they will be offering all dogs attending daycare or boarding 20% off grooms!

Effective December 1st, we will be requiring 6 month bordetella as opposed to 12 month bordetella. We will also be requiring clear fecals every 6 months to assure everyone is healthy. Here at Happy Hounds we strive to keep a happy and clean environment for all pups. Though the bordetella(kennel cough) vaccine is not 100% effective, we want to be sure we're doing as much as we can to assure everyone goes home happy, healthy, tired and not-too-dirty. =P

In completely unrelated news, Happy Hounds' snapchat is a HIT among the clients and fellow dog lovers. If you haven't already, be sure to add us to Snapchat and watch our daily stories.

Happy Hounds' Dog of the Month
Meet Louie

Louie, a Pug, joined the Happy Hounds family in May 2015 at the age of 4 months. Don't let his tiny size and cute squishy features fool you, Louie means business. He takes everything very seriously. Whether he's eating, romping with friends or playing body guard to his best friend and neighbor, Charlie, a black lab. Louie spends his days packed with tasks. His first chore of the day is to greet his BFF, Charlie, after a bunch of face kisses and wiggles are had, it's time to crack down and get to work. Louie doesn't let his guard down when it comes to protecting his buddy. He often squishes into Charlie's tummy or neck and plops, scanning the room to assure no one steps too close to Charlie. If someone dare comes close, they better prepare to be scolded with incessant little roos of displeasure. Charlie, on the other hand, barely notices Louie and all his hard work. He often naps through the excitement. One might argue that Louie is just THAT good at his job. After his first initial guard duty is up, it's time to let loose and play! Louie loves playing tug with all the dogs, big and small. He also enjoys a friendly game of fetch. Louie often finds himself last to be picked for the fetch team and rarely ever has the opportunity to hold the game ball but that doesn't mean he's not a valued player. Once break time is over, it's time to clock back into his guard duty job. Occasionally we catch him snoozing on the job after having too much fun with his buddies but we would never tell his boss, after all, all work and no play makes Louie a dull boy.

Adoptable Dog of the Month
Meet Cap'n Crunch!

This handsome 5 1/2 year old shephard/hound mix is looking for the perfect home to call his own. Cap'n Crunch has got it all. He's up to date on shots, neutered and microchipped. This guy is the all-around perfect catch for the woodsy explorer in all of us. Cap'n Crunch would love to join you and the family on a nature hike during the day and a good Netflix binge and cuddle at night. During his time spent waiting for his perfect home, he's been living at a boarding facility in Ann Arbor and has presented some separation anxiety. With a little home-life consistency and perhaps daycare, his anxieties can be eased in time. Cap'n Crunch is great with dogs, cats and kids. Whether you're interested in getting Fido a new brother or perhaps you know the perfect human companion for this young lad,  visit his biography page on LastDayDogRescue.org
