About Ron and Cathy

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
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.

Dog Boarding:
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. I'm sorry but we cannot accept dogs who are not potty trained and/or under the age of 2 years old. We cannot accommodate puppies.

Large Dogs: We are only able to board one large dog at a time. We cannot accept large dogs that are hyper and don't know basic commands. Older, well-mannered dogs do best in our home.

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.

Doggie Daycare:
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.

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)

Medical Requirements:
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!

This was the first time I had to leave my chihuahua with someone and I was pretty nervous. Ron and Kathy made me feel very comfortable and I loved the daily updates and photos. My little Chloe came home very happy and tired! She slept almost the the daily updates and photos. My little Chloe came home very happy and tired! She slept almost the whole day. I will definitely be using them again!!
