Happy Dog Care

Ellicott City, MD

Happy Dog Care is the original crate-free doggy daycare in Howard County, MD!

Our company was founded over 13 years ago by Julie Sampogna as the first cage free dog daycare and boarding facility in Ellicott City, Maryland. Founded on the belief that dogs should be allowed to follow their natural instincts as part of a pack, Happy Dog provides 100% crate-free play-- 100% of the time.

Dogs just want to be dogs, and here at Happy Dog Care, they can be. Thanks to our attentive and well-trained staff, they are free to play, swim, and cuddle with other four legged friends. In short, our thorough understanding of your pup's needs means that we can keep them safe, healthy, and well-behaved while you're away!
