Hello! First, congratulations! If you are reading this, it means you're about to marry the love of your life.
My name is Dina. I founded Humble Hounds in February of 2022. To be honest, I had no idea what I was doing and was terrified. When I announced on Facebook that this was a new venture I was embarking on, the response was overwhelming. Everyone wanted me to walk their dog, come play with their dog, or board their dog. Needless to say, Humble Hounds Adventures was off to a great start.
In May of 2022, I met Emily. She has a little baking business and makes delicious homemade dog treats. She made my vision of the Humble Hounds dog bone treats come to life. One day while picking up treats, Emily said, "Hey, I saw your ad that you're hiring and I'm very interested. I always dreamed of a job where I could pet and love dogs all day." So, we sat down, talked for a long time and a new friendship was born. Humble Hounds had gained an employee. Emily is now one of our in home dog boarders and Wedding Pet Attendants.
We were growing by leaps and bounds!
Then, one day we got a call. A bride! She was getting married in October of 2022. She wanted her dog to walk down the aisle and have pictures taken with them after their ceremony. She also wanted boarding for her dog the night before and the wedding night. Boarding was already something we did, but taking a dog to a wedding? Did this exist? I had NO idea it existed; never mind how great the need was! So after doing some research, I decided - Let's do it! Prior to the wedding, I would visit this pup, Ember, and we would practice walking down the "aisle". One day, I even had her mom and dad stand at the end of the street and we practiced walking to them. It was flawless; mom and I were crying. We were so proud of Ember and we knew the wedding day would go off without a hitch. After walking Ember down the aisle and being her plus one at her pawrents' wedding, I was HOOKED! Being at a wedding was like being in Disney! I felt like a little girl. Pure JOY!
In January of 2023, I met Tracy. Emily was having a baby and we needed another in home boarder. It was love at first sight. I knew Tracy was the one to join Humble Hounds. She was pawfect!
Once we did our first wedding there was no stopping us. The smiles on the faces of not only the bride and groom, but also the grandparents, the wedding party, and the guests - are priceless! To say we love what we do, is an understatment.
If you choose us to be your dog's plus one at your wedding, we promise the best care and service you can dream of. We think of every detail so you don't have to! Most importantly, we care for your pup like they are our own.
