Howling Hill Dog Boarding Welcomes Springtime

Howling Hill Dog Boarding is excited for the lovely winter months ahead!  Lots of reservations are coming in- all over the calendar even all of the way into June 2018!!  There are lots of holidays and vacations coming up so get your pup's reservation in as soon as you have the dates sorted out.  

Important notice:  Due to a large number of loyal customers Howling Hill is not accepting New Doggie Clients at this time.  While your interest is very appreciated- I am no longer booking to capacity as I don't have the extra hands I once had, and in an effort to not turn away the customers that have been coming for years, I've decided to reserve the limited space for those frequent visitors.  If this changes in the future- you'll read it here!  Thank you for understanding.   

Please take note that every visit to Howling Hill is considered an appointment.  If you need to drop off your pup or pick them up please let me know when you will be here.  When I do not have any appointments scheduled I just go about my dog chore routine, I do not open up the office and Howling Hill is considered closed.  The drop off and pick up hours are:  
Monday thru Friday  7:30-10 AM and 5-6:30 PM
Saturday  7:30-10 AM only
Sunday   5-6:30 PM only
Please call 207-272-7917 to make an appointment.  

Please remember that when visiting Howling Hill you are also visiting my family's home.  We deserve a certain level of privacy, as do the dogs that are visiting.
Please do not arrive unannounced. 
Please call, text or email when your plans change.
Please do not walk around our yard.
Please do not walk around and behind the fenced dog yards, and do not peek over the fencing or between spaces in the privacy screens.
Please do not peek into the kennel building window.
Do not ever let yourself into any play yard or my kennel building.
Please keep your children with you.
Please keep your dog on a leash or in your car until I am ready for them.  I will be right with you as soon as I can.
If you are waiting at the office and I am not visible, please do not look for me in the kennel or the play yards.  Do not come to my home and look for me.  If you have an appointment, I should be right along.  Please call me on the phone if you need me 
207-272-7917.  Honking your horn to get my attention is also fine by me!  
When office hours are over, Howling Hill is promptly CLOSED.  If you need to arrange an off hours drop off or pick up, it is to be scheduled and there is a fee of $35.

Most of this information and more can be found on these web pages.  Always feel free to call with any questions.  And, always feel free to call and check on your dogs while they are boarding at Howling Hill.  Please enjoy the photos on my Howling Hill Dog Boarding Facebook page.

This is a Lifestyle! And that is what makes Howling Hill Dog Boarding different.


Howling Hill Dog Boarding is a small capacity kennel that is family owned and operated right here in our yard.  Because of this, when you bring your dogs to stay at Howling Hill you know that they are going to become familiar with their caretaker and develop a relationship of trust with us.  Our visitors become familiar with the dog friendly surroundings and the routine, and are able to settle in pretty quickly upon arrival.  We live right here on the premises, so we are able to keep an ear and eye on them through the night.

Howling Hill is tucked away privately in the woods. Up on our hill, surrounded by pine trees and a brook, a quiet, peaceful, perfect Maine setting.  Howling Hill is different from other boarding programs in that we provide dog boarding with a full day of play and activities for your dog.  At Howling Hill the environment is designed to let a dog be a dog!  That means the pups are allowed to run, jump, play, dig, get dirty and wet, play with lots of toys and fun dog playground equipment...they really just get to let loose while you are away.  If you sign your dog up for leashed walks, they will be happy to explore the many trails through the woods, swim in the clean, cold brook, or even discover the thousands of jumping fish at our beautiful Fish Hatchery down the road.  We are lucky to live and run our kennel in a true doggie paradise!

Many people have asked- do you ever have a day off?  When do you get a vacation?  Well, we manage to squeeze in a lot during our down days.  And when we got our first couple of sled dogs 14 yrs ago, we were happy to commit everyday to living, thinking, and loving dogs!  This is truly Lifestyle choice, and we wouldn't have it any other way!

Hope to see you and your fuzzy buddy soon.  Love, Jessica
