Royal Treatment Dog Boarding

Hurd's Hound Haven is a Royal Treatment Dog Boarding Resort and Grooming Spa in Central Iowa. The Haven has been a local hangout for the dogs of Ames and surrounding communities since 1999. Our entire family has enjoyed caring for your wonderful canine friends. In February of 2006, after a fire destroyed our original kennel, we built a "perfect" new kennel. We are now proud to offer your "Hounds" luxury accommodations with a home like atmosphere . We are the "Ritz for Roover" :)

Play Area and Swimming

We now offer extended play time for dogs who need more special attention and care. Play times are with some of the many kids in the family or one of our other young energetic canine specialists. Or if you dog is older they can be brought for a nice long walk about the farm to see all the fun animals and smells of a farm. Also now during the warm months we offer swimming in our spring fed pond for the hunting and water dogs who love to splash in to a lot of fun. But they might have to share will the locals some of the farm ducks and geese.
