Major foot surgery + 10 month-old puppy = dilemma. How can this little Pom get the exercise and socialization she needs when mama can’t even walk? The answer – Hillary’s Hound House, where little feisty fur ball spent 5 days a week for my months of recovery. A beautiful, well-kept environment for dogs to play but – it gets better. Most days, the doggies are piled into a van or two and driven out to a ranch in Novato, where they get to run in fresh air (and training too, if that’s your need). A quality place, full of positive and knowledgeable employees, run by an owner who is a class act. Whatever your dog needs, there isn’t a better place.
