About Boarding

Happy Dog Day Care & Boarding is an alternative style boarding and day care facility. Owners Cathy and Diane wanted to create a place where they would feel comfortable leaving their own dogs. From their dreams came Happy Dog.

This alternative style of kenneling has proven very successful. The dogs play together in various outdoor play areas with other dogs that compliment them in terms of size, temperament, energy level and age.  As a result, dogs become socialized with other dogs and people. Because the dogs spend their day exercising outside, they eat and sleep better in their airy extra large kennels with heated floors.  Happy Dog has a state of the art security system with night time observation.

We will provide bedding for your dog's use while boarding with us, but do encourage a bed or blanket from home, along with a toy or two, for your dogs sense of security.  Special diets and medications are welcome.  Please make sure to bring enough for the entire stay.  If your dog requires canned dog food please bring it, since Happy Dog does not provide it.
