The Dog House Farm
My name is Scarlett Bowman and I am the proud owner of The Dog House, a dog boarding facility. As a fellow animal lover and owner of 4 dogs, I understand the anxiety an owner goes through when they must leave their beloved pets in a kennel. You wish you could find a place like home. This is why I have tried very hard to make The Dog House’s accommodations as roomie & homelike as possible. To keep a more loving environment where your dog gets the individual love and attention that they deserve, I have kept my facility small. Boarding your dog should be simple and budget-friendly. That is why The Dog House is an "all-inclusive" vacation for your pet. Walks and playtime in a yard should be the standard level of care, not options you have to pay for. At The Dog House, you will NEVER be charged a penny more than our nightly rate...I GUARANTEE it. So next time you need to go away, give your best friend a vacation from the harsh kennel atmosphere, and let me prove to you that there is a better way.
What's home away from home like? The kennel was originally built over 15 years ago for fostering of dogs but over the past 10 years has evolved into the business it is today.
It starts with a 1/2 mile long gravel driveway that takes you for a drive in between beautiful turf fields and past one of the last remaining Tobacco Barns in Howard County. When pulling into The Dog House you will see the owners farmhouse to your left, complete with the wrap-around porch and white picket fence. You will notice the chickens walking around and you can pop over to take a look at The Dog House's infamous potbellied pigs Tinker and Belle. The Dog House is a small private facility that only has 16 kennels.
We reserve several of those kennels for fostering dogs who are in search of a new "forever" home. The building that is now The Dog House used to be the chicken house "back in the day" when Belmont Farm was a working dairy farm. The kennel was originally built 15 years ago for rescue work but has over the past 10 years branched into what it is today. The building is heated and air-conditioned so your furry friend is sure to be cool in the summer and cuddly warm in the winter.
There are 2 fenced-in yards attached to the building where your dogs can enjoy their time playing with others or outside relaxing by themselves. Each dog has its individual room, the smallest being 5x5 and the largest being 9x6 to better accommodate our very large breed lovers.
