"Creating a space where owners feel comfortable bringing their dogs to my facility is a dream come true."

- Happy Hounds Owner, Rebecca Vernon

Meet the Owner

Rebecca, the owner of Happy Hounds, is a Certified Canine Training Specialist. She is a graduate from Starmark Academy School for Dog Trainers, a well-recognized and respected school teaching and certifying dog trainers in Austin, TX. Along with a Finance degree from Auburn University, a grooming license from Academy of Dog Grooming Arts, and years of dog experience with a passion for dog agility and bird hunting with her personal dogs. 


“Creating a space where owners feel comfortable bringing their dogs to my facility is a dream come true. When I first had the idea to open a Dog Daycare and Boarding facility many years ago, I felt there was a void in the Oklahoma City Metro for a true top of the line facility. So I set out to create one myself. Happy Hounds is the culmination of 4 years of hard work creating the perfect space for dogs to play, sleep, and socialize. As a dog trainer myself, I know the need to have dog daycare set up for proper play to ensure safety. As a dog owner, I know how hard it can be to trust a business to care for my dogs. Happy Hounds is a perfect blend of a trainer’s approach to off-leash play. We are proud of what we have created!” 

About Our Facility

Happy Hounds is a trained and certified facility that offers dog daycare and dog overnight boarding services. We are a family-owned business and our philosophy is building trust through transparency. Happy Hounds is a luxury boutique pet service for one reason: the level of service and care for each dog and their owner. We use a dog-trainer-approved approach to group play that helps each dog be the best version of themselves while they are with us. We keep owners informed with exactly how each dog is handling boarding or daycare. Some dogs need to warm up to group play, while others are so excited that they need to learn to calm down a bit to earn friends in group play.


Dog socialization happens when each individual dog goes through that learning process. They learn they are safe! That daycare is fun! And that Happy Hounds is a place they love!


Starmark Academy for Professional Dog Trainers is a state-approved trade school that offers certification in the science of dog training
