Dogs of the Month




This happy pup is Smokey, a yellow lab. Smokey and his brother, Teddy, joined the Happy Hounds family in January 2005 at the age of 7 months. He's the goofy, needy one of the two. Smokey wants all of the attention and he wants it now! If another dog is being pet within view of him, Smokey will often voice his disapproval and/or nudge your hand away from the other dog and onto him. Good thing we have two hands!



This sweet boy is Teddy, a yellow lab. Teddy and his brother, Smokey, joined the Happy Hounds family in January 2005 at the age of 7 months. He is the biggest lover you'll ever meet. Teddy doesn't have one remotely grumpy bone in his body. He is typically found lounging in the sun, waiting for someone to talk to him and give him love. If he's not quite done with the attention, Teddy will gently paw at your leg, politely asking for more.



This pretty lady is Sashia, a Springer Spaniel. Sashia joined the Happy Hounds family in March of 2007 at the age of two. When she isn't patrolling the yard for squirrels, she's often found sprawled out on her back in an awkward position. Sashia is ALWAYS the first to charge to the boarding house to snatch up the most desired spot on the couch.



This handsome devil is Charlie, a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Dog. Charlie joined the Happy Hounds family in December of 2009 at the age of one.  He has a very serious job which includes but is not limited to; keeping nuisance critters away from the yard, alerting the pack of an approaching human, and patrolling dogs at play. Charlie takes his job very seriously. He never lets his guard down not even for a quick snooze in the sun. Thanks for all the hard work, Charlie!

Friendly Reminders

When boarding your dog with us, we MUST have your dogs updated vaccination records 48 hours BEFORE he/she begin boarding.  If you are traveling abroad, we also will need a local contact in case of emergency.

Your dog MUST have a snap "quick release" collar for day care and boarding, with no tags attached. You can keep the snap collar in your Happy Hounds backpack.  If this is not his/her daily collar we will change it out when your dogs arrive at Happy Hounds.  This is important for your dogs safety.
