We live in New Jersey and have been bringing our 2 dogs to the Happy Run Kennel for about the last 5 years. We drop them off every Friday and pick them up on Sunday, from April to November. They also stayed there during our 2 week vacation during the summers. Both the Cocker Spaniel and the English Setter could not wait to get there. They would jump out of the car and run to Lois or Steve. They truly loved our dogs. Even though the dogs have passed away, we still exchange Christmas cards. Lois and Steve are 2 of the most loving people I have ever met. If anyone wants a personal reference, please call me at 973–239-6114.

Sincerely, Barbara Sandberg

A very big Thank You! to the wonderful people at Happy Run kennel! I left my Chesapeake Bay retriever, Fieona, there for 10 days and she obviously had a great time. Fieona is not the easiest dog to handle nor does she warm up to people well but much to my surprise, that wasn't the case. Fieona adores them! She was happy and friendly and full of her normal energy. I had been at the kennel several times before I left her there and was very impressed with the high standards in which it was run and maintained. I would give them 10 stars if it was possible. Thank you everyone at Happy Run for a perfect experience! We will definitely be coming back!
