How it Works
REQUIRED CANINE ASSESSMENT
Each new customer must fill out a Client Info form, which provides us with information on your dog's health and any special needs. It also begins to give us a sense of your dog's temperament and any behavior issues we need to know about. We pride ourselves on accepting only friendly, non-aggressive dogs to ensure the safety and happiness of all!
To receive your form, please contact us:
All dogs must have:
Up to date vaccinations, including proof of rabies and DHPP
Current ID tag and license
Heartworm preventative treatment
Flea/tick preventative treatment
Lyme disease vaccination strongly recommended
Proof of spay or neuter (limited exceptions; please call us)
Hike Hounds Canine Adventures, LLC reserves the right to prohibit from participation any dog whose behavior or medical condition would cause a risk to himself or any members of the pack. Safety is our number one priority!
We love showing off our Puppy Paradise!
After you send back your forms, we will arrange a meet & greet on either weekdays or on weekends. We will take you and your dog on a tour of our Hackettstown area farm and trails, while the puppies get to know each other. Dogs will be off leash, and the entire property is fenced. Then we go inside to review the assessment forms and show you just how many comfy pillows you can fit into one house, as well as answer any questions. If all goes well, we sign you up!
Visits are made by appointment only to make sure we're not out on a hike!
Located minutes from Routes 80, 78, 46, 206, 57 and 31, we are convenient to the entire Northern Jersey area. Customers provide transportation for Boarding and Daycare
Hours: 9am - 4pm (flexible)
No contract necessary; you can sign up for once or twice or seven times per week, or on an as-needed, flexible schedule (including weekends). Last minute reservations are accepted, but we fill up fast so it's always better to plan ahead if you can.
