What Makes Happy Hounds Different?
Luxury Boarding Option
In addition to our 19 standard boarding lodges, we offer 13 luxury suites. Providing a roomy, comfortable interior (not stainless steel and concrete or chain link fencing), flat-panel televisions and platform beds help your dog feel more ‘at home’ while you are away. Limiting the number of lodges and suites we offer allows us to take better care of each guest. We are happy to accommodate special diets and medications your dog might need. And as always, daycare and a nighttime potty break are included with every boarding! Facilities are monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Our daycare is designed with the health and safety of your dogs in mind. Rubber flooring (inside) and synthetic grass (outside) in our play areas is easier on joints and paws. Outside fencing that is not climbable (unlike chain link). Inside and outside fencing with solid bottom rails, so dogs cannot cut themselves playing or trying to squeeze under (unlike chain link). Every dog in daycare is temperament tested to ensure the safety of all our canine customers!
Building trust is the first step in any relationship with a dog and is especially important when it comes to grooming. Our grooming staff is taught to remain aware of your dog’s mental state throughout the grooming experience as an essential step in keeping them safe and comfortable. We have washtubs made of non-slip plastic to prevent slipping and unnecessary loud noises, stock all-natural grooming products, use low noise professional dryers and regularly replace our grooming tools.
Vapor Steam Cleaning
We use two commercial vapor steam machines in the daily cleaning of our facility. Having these machines significantly reduces the use of chemicals, minimizing exposure of your dogs and our employees to these substances. Though a substantial investment, these machines provide an effective, “green” alternative.
We have several air purification devices installed throughout the facility. Managing air quality helps keep respiratory diseases to a minimum. It would be impossible to eliminate the risk of disease entirely, but use of air purifications systems help keep the spread of infection to a minimum.
