Happy Hounds is a unique family owned and operated dog care establishment serving Northern Virginia, DC and Maryland. Located on 17 gorgeous rolling acres in rural Round Hill, Virginia, guests share our farmhouse and become our family members during their stay.

All of our guests sleep inside our home because we are a fun, warm, and loving kennel-free "home away from home" for your dog. The goal of Happy Hounds Lodge is to keep your dog happy and safe. We maintain 24 hour professional care and careful supervision for every guest.

Happy Hounds Lodge provides unlimited opportunities to play outside with our well-socialized pack, also known as “the social directors.” Two playful Beagles (Lacey and Ferris), two young gregarious chocolate Labradors (Harley and Charley) a Rat Terrier (Billy) and Dixie, a Tibetan Terrier, all love to meet and greet newcomers and delight in catching up with old friends

At the Lodge, younger and more active dogs, love to spend lots of time running freely in our large secure areas with our enthusiastic pack. They also love to chase the ever-elusive squirrels, splash in the doggy pools and dig or roll in the sand pile.


Our senior guests are closely monitored to be sure they are happy and comfortable and not disturbed by the more active guests. They enjoy short walks in the yard and can lovingly be carried outside for a little fresh air.

Reservations are required as we are only able to accommodate a limited number of guests. All of our guests must be current on their immunizations and we strongly recommend tick and flea protection.

Most of our guests are with us for extended stays. We will ensure your dog is able to keep any veterinary or grooming appointments.

We would love to have you visit the Happy Hounds Lodge. Please give us a little notice, at least 10 minutes, so we can relocate the dogs that love to answer the door when you knock or ring the doorbell.

Happy Hounds Lodge is open seven days a week. We provide safe, kennel-free personalized overnight boarding. We also offer a pick-up and delivery service for a minimal fee.

Happy Hounds Lodge will ensure your dog has a vacation that lets a dog be a dog! He will go home with a smile on his face and his tail wagging and will surely be very excited to visit us again! Use our online reservation request form to setup your "meet and greet" today.
