There are many pressures on small businesses these days, particularly one with virtually no profit margin.  Unfortunately a rate increase will be necessary effective June 1st. We want you to know that, as clients, you are paying directly for staff, our facility, the rent, and maintenance.  Those basic costs, unfortunately, have gone up.


As you are likely aware, the City and the State are moving towards a higher minimum wage and recently implemented paid protected sick leave.  Of course, DGH supports a livable wage for everyone, however because finances at DGH leave no margin, these increasing costs must be passed on to you.

The following rate changes be effective on June 1st, 2017:

Single full day: $39

5-visit  punchcard : $175

10-visit punchcard: $340

20-visit punchcard $640

Hello Dog Gone Happy family! The brand new buzz is our brand new website!  I sincerely hope all of our regulars enjoy the new look and any newcomers appreciate the layout and easy navigation. If you have any concerns about the website, ideas to improve it, or any questions at all, feel free to contact me directly here.

Everything should be in fine working order but if anything is a little "ruff" around the edges I hope you will be patient with us and know that we are working to give you a better web-experience!

I am very happy to help improve the Dog Gone Happy experience and I hope everyone enjoys the update.
