Spotlight on: Meet Dylan!

photoMeet Dylan, a handsome and youthful  black and white Springer Spaniel! He comes for a visit to The Dog House Kennel twice weekly as part of the S&E Program to brush up on his on-lead walking and socialization skills. Since Dylan is newer to his household, and his elder canine pals aren’t used to his exuberant energy, it’s helpful that he has a place to burn off some extra enthusiasm outside of the home! Angus loves to have the extra companionship on these hourly get-togethers!

In the picture to the left, Dylan is enjoying the cool, running water of a stream located in the back of our property. Don’t worry, we washed his paws off before he left for home… No dirty paws on our watch!

Dylan has a wonderful home in Oldwick, NJ and John and Phyllis are lucky to have this jovial pup in their lives. We’ll see you again soon, Dylan!

About Our “Take a Hike!” with Angus Program

At The Dog House Kennel, we believe in giving back to our community while enjoying the beauty and benefits! Let’s get outside and back to nature! When you participate in “Take a Hike! with Angus,” we will take your canine pal with us to one of many well kept, preserved lands, and spacious parks that New Jersey provides to the public and its pooches. Your best companion will be treated to the thrill of open fields, winding paths, hiking through valleys and rolling hills, and indulge in nature’s best remedy: invirorating fresh air and sunshine. The best part? At the end of the outdoor season, The Dog House Kennel will donate all proceeds to a special NJ  park, preserved space or local land that welcomes our furry four-pawed friends.

An excerpt from the book:

“Are you eager to embrace the outdoors and what Mother Nature has to offer, get your family involved or perhaps learn some local history? You can find what you need in Hunterdon and the surrounding Counties. Check out Taylor Steelworkers Historic Greenway in High Bridge, a wonderful source of history dating to the Revolutionary War. For an environmental lesson, try Merrill Creek Reservoir in Washington Township, Warren County. Enjoy a family picnic in the shade along the Black River at Hacklebarney State Park, Chester Township, Morris County. Beauty and serenity are available right here in New Jersey, the most densely populated state in the United States. “
