I leave my dog here for trips I cannot bring him and when I get back I find my dog well taken care of. Staff were friendly and prices were okay. A great place that may need improvement in the facilities but overall a very satisfied customer. More...

I have been a Happy Hound client for several years. I appreciate the convenience and I love that I can relax on vacation knowing my pooch is safe and happy. HH's customer service is great too and the staffers love the dogs. More...

What a wonderful experience my dog and I have had at Happy Hound! I used to own a yappy, nip at your heels, anti-social Chihuahua but after 2 weeks at the Happy Hound Board and Train school - I now own a calm, cooperative, walks by my side Chihuahua. Buster was absolutely transformed. I love Happy Hound because it's Busters home away from home. He plays with other doggies in a supervised and controlled environment and always gets plenty of love from the staff. When I pick him up from daycare he goes right to sleep on my lap with a smile on his face. And he is always eager to get back to Happy Hound to see all of his canine and human friends. If you are looking for the best doggy daycare, overnight boarding or dog training facility - you will find all of that and more at Happy Hound Play & Daycare! More...

I'm rather stunned by the recent harsh negative reviews. I started taking my big, high-spirited pup there a couple of months ago, and it has been great for him. I put him in day-care so that he can get a full day of exercise a couple of days per week. The whole point is for him to get worn out, and to get him more used to playing with other dogs. We also went through the long interview process, however it was a breeze, and I actually got a lot of advice on raising and training the boy. I felt secure knowing that the other dogs went through the same process, and that problem dogs would be weeded out. My dog had been falsely accused of being aggressive, and they recognized high-energy and high-spirits as not being equivalent to aggressiveness. I also like the fact that they are so confident of how they treat the dogs that they have a web-cam so you can check in anytime you want. They keep at least one person in each play area (as opposed to some of the places I visited which had only one staff person there when I arrived, and nobody with the dogs.) The first day we showed up at daycare, the staff all knew we were coming and knew my dog's name. I was left with the impression that they all care about the dogs in their care. Many of the daycare places keep dogs in pens, and let them out only for occasional play periods. Here they can play all day. He comes home tired and happy. He knows the schedule, and when I take him out of the house in the AM and head for the car rather than the park, he gets incredibly excited. For us, it has been great and I recommend Happy Hound.

I can't say enough to explain how both me and my dogs feel about Happy Hound. The service is great, the enviroment is great, the staff is above great! I come from a small town and to move to the bay area with my pooches it was a relief to find such a great home away from home. They love it and I wouldnt take them anywhere else. It may be a wi-bit pricey but its totally worth it. Most of all its organized, safe, and clean. LOVE IT! More...

Dogs run free in supervised, enclosed areas, designated by size; small, med and large dogs. Handlers rotate between the enclosures, getting to know all of their charges, while ensuring everyone is playing nice and not making a ruckus. Staff are all clearly dog-lovers, and friendly to the owners as well. They do accommodate for nervous dogs or those who need a gentle introduction to the stressors of playing in a pack. My nervous ninny comes home more confident from her days at H.H., while my big solid bully dog comes home exhausted from a day with the Big Dogs. This place is tops; the only -- and I mean it -- kennel/day care situation I would recommend to anyone. It is a bit on the pricy side, but what you pay for is the well-being of your dog -- not something I've had good experience with in any other kenneling situation. More...

I am so afraid to refer people to kennels in the local area. I have been thrilled to find such a great new facility that I can refer with confidence, especially with so many of us who work late and would like to bring our dogs to work! This is an amazing option to bring your dog in so that you can take off right after work! More...

I was traveling to the Oakland area with my pooch, but needed a place to board her for a few days. The staff at Happy Hound is GREAT! They are friendly, knowledgable & very loving toward the dogs who board there. I think my dog had a great vacation at Happy Hound & would highly recommend this facility & group of folks. More...
