I honestly didn’t realize how good my Lola (3 year old Beagle/Bassett mix) had it at HOH until we moved. I now live in Pittsburgh, a much bigger area, and have been shopping doggie daycares/boarding facilities. I have found nothing to even closely compare to the stimulating, but still relaxed and home like atmosphere of HOH. Most daycare/boarding facilities are warehouse glorified kennels with an inside cement floor and outside yard for dogs. VERY BASIC, and a kind of stressful feeling environment. HOH is an actual home inside with beds and couches for the dogs and outside actual play areas with pools/play house/jungle gym type features. It’s like mini-Disneyland for dogs, but has again a very chill/homelike feel. Lola can be a skittish dog, but she took to HOH easily, and would get so excited every time I dropped her off. Brannon, Kendra, and the staff were wonderful to me and Lola. Top notch facility all the way. Please take advantage if you’re a pet owner in the area…I wish I still could.
