"Our mission is to connect Hounds & Humans to make every day a play day. This is at the core of everything we do". – Leah Neuroth – Owner
The 12,000 sq. ft. facility offers daycare, boarding, grooming, a self serve dog wash, a tavern, indoor dog park as well as an additional 8,000 sq. ft. of outdoor play areas.
"We wanted to create a space where dogs and their humans can come together in a safe, clean environment that is grounded in our community." – Jeffrey Wilgus – Owner
With a focus on safety in the facility, the owners Leah Neuroth, Jeffrey Wilgus, along with their trained and experienced staff, require all dog owners to provide proof of up-to-date hound vaccinations. In addition, all hounds must be at least 4 months of age, be spayed or neutered if over 6 months of age, and be hound & human friendly.
For the ultimate pampering experience, the dog spa professional stylists will make sure each hound’s specific grooming needs and breed characteristics are taken into account. If a dog parent prefers to bathe and dry their dog themselves, the facility also has a self-wash station.
When clients bring their dogs in for daycare, the dogs will enjoy ample indoor/outdoor play time, as well as hourly relaxing breaks. All dogs start with a compatibility assessment and will be placed into groups based on age, size, and temperament.
When boarding a hound, they will be on their own vacation with soothing music and aromatherapy. The facility has spacious kennels, temperature-controlled rooms, soft lighting, a sleeping cot, and upgradable luxurious suites.
The Tavern and dog park, with a separate entrance, features TV’s, free WIFI & a fully stocked bar with local crafted beers in cans and on tap, as well as wine and cocktails. The indoor and outdoor secure off-leash park is the perfect place for hounds to play while their humans enjoy a drink, regardless of the weather or the time of year. If guests are hungry, the facility offers a variety of local food trucks.
The Hounds & Tap caters to dogs and dog lovers, but all humans are welcome, whether they own a dog or not!
