Choosing a new kennel facility for your pet is an important decision. We at Hound Hollow understand your concerns when leaving your pet. At Hound Hollow your pet can enjoy a vacation for a day, week, or longer. They will receive a spacious indoor/outdoor kennel run, proper diet, healthy exercise, geared to their level in our fenced play yard, but most importantly, love from caring people, all in a secure surrounding.

All dogs must have current licenses. All vaccines must be given at least two weeks prior to boarding with us. We require current distemper combination vaccine as well as current rabies, bordatella and caninine influenza vaccines.

Office manager Cinch, is ready to make your holiday reservations. He recommends booking early.
New K9 Granola cookies have arrived…Chunky Cherry and Cranberry Bread. Get them here, they won’t last long.
I’m off… for my walk in the leaves.
Friday’s here, yes! Jellybean, has become the focal point in my house. I so enjoy having him board with us. It brings back some sweet memories on our little Izz Bizz. I do miss that lil pig.
The Poodle brigade are here… Amy, Libby and Gia(from left to right) and Roxie the Golden Retriever and Percy the Pembroke Welsh Corgi. I’m off to start getting dogs out. Have a great day, enjoy the sunshine!
For all of those who have prepared for Yom Kippur, have a easy fast today and tomorrow.
Fall is in full swing… I can tell by the amount of black walnuts that fall in the play yard. The old trees are over 70 feet tall and when those nuts fall and hit you, they hurt. I picked up 2 full five gallon buckets worth again this morning. It’s dangerous out there to be quite honest. A whisper of wind causes a major downpour of nuts. I have used my best judgement on letting dogs out. I certainly don’t want any dog or myself being hit in the head by a fly by nut. I’ll see how it looks later today.
Please, enjoy the wonderful day we’ve been given. Until next time…..
The rains are gone and it feels good to go outside and see some blue skies. It was getting pretty gloomy seeing all the rain. I know Becky’s horses certainly are enjoying today’s weather a lot better. Just take a look at Oliver…mud was just everywhere. Buddy, the chestnut pony is the only one who looks clean. Little Rocco aka as Cupcake, the miniature horse was water soaked.
Tomorrow, we welcome back my two favorite Ridgeback kids… Miss Shumba and Tamba. They will be spending the day with us.
If anyone needs any special dog food or treats, please let me know before Wednesday at noon time.
Seasonal treats are in…Pumpkin Pie, Sweet Potato, Apple & Cranberry, Grain free Wafers baked with Pumpkin or Apples & Oats.
It looks like fall has come in with a real bang. For a few days it was beautiful, typical fall weather. Now, nothing but cold, damp and rainy days. This is day 2 of the rain and as dry as things have been I am eager for the rains to go.
Columbus day weekend is fast approaching. Have you made you pet’s reservations for that getaway weekend? On the subject of making your pet’s reservations… have you given thought to Thanksgiving and Christmas? We are filling those dates. Please, remember all dogs must be current on their vaccinations.
We have added to our Fromm Dog Foods inventory the most popular Four Star Nutritionals line. Check it out. Remember, we can try and special order any food you might need.
On that note, I wish you all a great day. stay dry! Until next time…..
The temps have been extremely hot the past couple of days. We had several dogs leave and now I can concentrate on the ones still here. Spending time with each one, inside where it is cool, and with cookies seems to be working best. The bees also seem really bad right now. I’ve been extremely careful with the dogs when walking them.
On a different note… I got a newsletter from my food distributor. Fromm, prices will go up August 1, 2016. I have tried getting the increase prices, but they will not relinquish them until August 1st. I will post the increase as soon as I am given them.
That’s it from here. Stay cool!
OK, here we go again.. three people already this morning called to board their dogs and their dogs are not vaccinated for Bordetella and Canine Influenza. I personally WILL NOT take any dogs without the proper vaccinations. I don’t give a hoot what other kennels do. Don’t preach to me. Dogs here are the priority and being irresponsible isn’t my thing. Being proactive, rather then reactive is the right thing. So do YOUR PART AND VACCINATE YOUR DOGS. Our required vaccines are Distemper combination, Rabies, Bordetella and Canine Influenza. If you don’t have these on your pet, call a kennel that doesn’t give a hoot! Off my soap box now.
Morning all. It’s a rainy Saturday so the dogs will all have special in my office time.
This morning we welcomed back Nugget, the poodle mix. What a cutie he is. This photo was taken by his owner at his home. He was all packed, ready for camp.
Right now all the dogs are happy as they have fresh marrow bones. All are being enjoyed. It’s a great way to keep them happy on a rainy day.
Until next time, be well.
Happy Friday all.
Today we welcomed back Cooper the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Molly the Corgi mix and one of our older gals Bailey the Siberian Husky. Tomorrow, little Nugget arrives.
The sun was really hot today and the dogs didn’t really want to play outside. The pool was utilized by the ACD gang as they love the water. Please, remember to keep your dogs safe during these above temperture days. Heat stroke happens quickly in dogs.
I hope you all have a great day.
Until next time…….
The holiday weekend is here and I urge you all the please keep your pet’s safe.
We welcomed back some regulars…. Daisy, Percy, Abbey, Gonzo and Oliver and we are glad to have some newcomers as well… Lexie, Miles and Bella. Look for these kids on cam and photos in the days to come.
Please keep safe this weekend. Until next time….
What a busy day, we had here at the kennel yesterday. First we celebrated Cooper’s birthday party. All the dogs had Gingerbread men supplied by Cooper’s owners. I’d say all the dogs totally enjoyed the special treats.
Next we headed to the play yard for some pool time. I think the Cattle Dogs really had fun. They were in and out of the pool for hours.
Summer, is now in full swing. Anyone that needs those last minute reservations, please let me know. Remember dogs must be vaccinated fully to stay with us. Our vaccinated protocol is posted on the side bar.
Stay cool… until next time.
Morning all, sadly it’s currently drizzling, so dogs will be inside unless it stops.
I wanted to remind everyone that if you are planning a summer vacation it’s smart to book your pet’s reservation now. My large and extra large runs seem to book very quickly. If you have a Labrador Retriever, Great Dane or other large breeds call early to ensure a large run for your pet.
Again, I need to stress the importance of properly vaccinating your pet in advance for his or her vacation with us. We, as most other facilities in our area require the Distemper combination vaccine, Rabies which is PA State Law, Bordetella(Kennel Cough) and the Canine Influenza(K9 Flu) vaccines. The Flu vaccine does require a booster if given for the first time. You will need to allow time in between the vaccine and then the incubation period. Please, we want to be proactive, not reactive.
Dogs must have a PA State dog license according to the Dept. of Ag, Dog Law Enforcement. Please, make sure your pet is properly licensed.
I wish everyone a great weekend. Look for all our canine guests on our cams.
Going to rant….
As a kennel owner, I try and be responsible and reasonable. The past few days I have turned down several new potential clients due to the lack of vaccines our facility requires. I am not going to change my policy, so please do not ask me to. If another facility is willing to take your dog without vaccinations, then please use them. If your veterinarian says the vaccines are not valid that’s their opinion. It is the opinion of my personal veterinarian and others, that these vaccinations are necessary.
If you would like to board with us, your pet will need the following vaccinations.
Distemper combination , Rabies, Bordetella and Canine Influenza.
Cams are currently down. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
It’s the official kick off to summer. The temperatures are well above normal, into the 90’s. Please, remember to keep all your pets safe in this heat. Also, remember there probably will be fireworks in the evening so again, keep your pets inside and safe.
This weekend we welcomed back, Percy, Gonzo, Oliver, Tank and Khloe. New campers.. JC, Reds and Misty.
I hope you all have a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend.
It’s a very wet Friday. Dogs are in and will get time with me in the office.
We are welcoming back Nittany & Luna today. Hopefully, the weather will improve and all the dogs can get out this weekend.
Be well everyone.
Just a reminder, it is not our responsibility to acquire your pet’s vaccinations records from your veterinarian. It is also not our responsibility to make sure your pet is fully vaccinated for the vaccinations we require for boarding with us. As a pet owner, you must do your part. We do our part in making sure ALL pet’s entering our facility are vaccinated according to our protocol.
We also ask all pet’s be on a parasite control program for both internal and external parasites.
When boarding with us we ask you to provide emergency telephone numbers of people that actually can make decisions on your behalf, for your pet’s best interest. If you leave us a name and number and the person has no idea, that is not good. We need home numbers, cell numbers and names of all responsible parties.
Keep in mind, this is because we care about YOUR pet as if it was our own.
On a more pleasant note, we welcome back canine guests Isabella, Luna, Nittany and Chloe.
It is with great sadness we tell you Gracie, the Beagle crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. We send our deepest condolences to the entire Steward Family. Run free, Gracie.
