Houndstown Hillsdale

Happy "Howl"-idays!

Houndstown is unleashing all kinds of joy this holiday season. The dog boarding and daycare facility is busy planning a “furry” little Christmas "Pawty" on Wednesday, December 20 to spread love and joy to shelter pups waiting for their forever home.

“We are partnering with Ramapo Bergen Animal Refuge in Oakland,” says Perrin DeFreitas, "and hoping that our party pups will help by donating much-needed items for the shelter—things like food, treats, blankets, and bedding.”

Houndstown provides top-notch care and lots of interactive play for dogs of all breeds and sizes. Along with boarding and doggie daycare, once enrolled, you can even drop off your pooch for a playdate when he needs to expend a little energy (a "pawfect" strategy prior to holiday entertaining at home)!

“All dogs are grouped by their size and temperament, and they get to play all day in one of our five indoor temperature-controlled playrooms or our outdoor playroom,” says Perrin. “New dogs make an appointment for a free evaluation to make sure the facility is a good fit. Then, they receive a complimentary visit to try it out and get acclimated to the environment.”

If you plan on using Houndstown’s boarding facilities for vacation or holiday travel, the first complimentary visit would be used prior to your pet’s first boarding reservation. “We always want to ensure the dogs are happy and comfortable,” says Perrin.

Since opening three years ago, Houndstown has added some new services, including bathing, ear cleaning, tooth brushing, and nail clipping. There’s even a blueberry facial scrub on the list of services!

If your fur baby has yet to visit Houndstown, be sure you make an evaluation appointment in order to attend this “yappy holiday” celebration. Pictures with Santa “Paws,” festive play, and celebratory holiday wear are all in order!
