Welcome to Happy Hound Haven where your pet will receive 24 hour supervision and lots of play time! Is your canine companion ready for a vacation? We are here for you! My husband, Ron and I volunteer with Animal Rescue of Tracy since 2011. Between the two of us we have over 20 years experience in handling and caring for dogs. Both of us are retired and can devote our time to your pup! Our flexibility and ability to take last minute reservations (in most cases) add a level of assurance that we are here for you!
We have fostered dogs for 5 years and have provided boarding services since 2014 so our own dogs are socialized and are used to other dogs coming over for visits. We have a nice sized, clean, smoke-free home where the dogs have free access to the family room and kitchen plus a doggie door that leads to the backyard. There is a covered patio and trees in the backyard where the dogs can stay out of the elements if they choose. All outdoor play is supervised and includes ball chasing, running around, and going into the wading pool during warmer weather if they like.
To provide peace of mind while you are away we will text you an update and pictures at least every other day. Your 4-legged friend will receive the same loving care as our own dogs which includes walks, treats, meals and supervised outdoor play. We are only able to board one large dog at a time. Rate of $33 is for 24 hour time period. Beyond 24 hours will be charged $3.00/hour per dog or $23 for 8 hour day. Discount offered on 2nd dog. I'm sorry, we are unable to accommodate puppies.
If Mobile Vet Tech services are needed (for injections) we can make those arrangements; those fees are extra. Please request Custom Quote.
Taking a day trip and can't take your furry companion? Or maybe your dog is an "only" dog and would enjoy socialization for a few hours. Discount offered on 2nd dog. $20 is for an 8-hour day. Beyond 8 hours will be charged at $2.00/hour per dog.
Drop In Visits:
We provide drop-in visits (15 min. or 30 min.) at your home to feed your animals (farm, dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, etc.), provide potty breaks and clean up services, play time, administer oral and topical medication (no injections), and provide companionship while you are away. We can check mail, place garbage cans to/from curb, bring in paper/packages, water plants, etc.
Sometimes dogs get bored if you're gone all day and all they need is a walk. We can help you with that! We will come to your home and take your canine companion for 30 minute walks, normally long enough to keep your furbaby happy!
Transport: We can pick up your dog and/or drop off your dog for grooming, vet visits, or if you are boarding at a daycare facility and are running late call us and we can pick up! Basic rate of $10 one way plus mileage will apply @ .54 cents per mile (within Tracy, CA)
Proof of rabies is required. Please be up-to-date on vaccines. Flea Prevention Medication is highly recommended. We can administer oral medications and topical medications if necessary. No injections.
Feel free to propose a meet 'n' greet - we'd love for you to check us out first before you place your reservation!
