🌎 Welcome to the world little ones! Last night eight bundles of joys entered the world, and we couldn’t be happier to see our OPH family grow. We’re so glad these puppies had the chance to be born in a loving foster home and not in a crowded shelter. Expect more adorable pics soon!

"She'll never find me!"
Winston has managed two great feats on his first day of daycare: became the #1 unopposed hide and seek champion, AND found the perfect snoozle spot to recharge his batteries from a morning of play.

Our Story

Healthy Hound Playground was conceived by Brandon Power in the summer of 2012. After spending 18 years in the management consulting industry, he decided it was time for a big change. Brandon grew up with a passion for dogs and always had a keen interest in these special creatures and enjoyed training his own rescue dogs. It was time to turn his passion into his career.

Brandon wanted to build a facility where he and his wife, Shayda, would feel comfortable leaving their own dogs. It was their belief that dogs are entitled to some core services, whether socializing in day care or boarding overnight.

After investigating the pet boarding service industry in our area, he felt he could offer the market something new and innovative by combining some key features that were not currently being provided in tandem, along with a high level of creature comfort and a superior customer experience. Such features included regular outdoor potty breaks along with 12 hours of continuous cage-free dog day care, spacious kennels, and 24/7 onsite attendants. His goal was to provide these services and keep the cost to customers at a competitive price point.

Since opening their doors in March 2013, Healthy Hound Playground has maintained a nearly 5 star rating on Google, Yelp, and Facebook. It has received recognition from both Washingtonian Magazine and Northern Virginia Magazine as the Best Dog Day Care and Boarding Kennel in the area. It has also received the Angie’s List Super Service Award for maintaining a perfect “A Rating”.

Due to the large number of customer requests, in 2018 Healthy Hound Playground has expanded their service offering to include a full spectrum Grooming Salon & Spa. Customers of their grooming spa now include both day care and boarding clients as well as those who come solely for their groomers’ expertise.

The combination of an expansive facility, highly trained staff, continual supervision, and a common love for all dogs makes Healthy Hound Playground a truly unique business in our industry.

Molly's daycamp hangover started the minute we got home!
Mary (one year old this week!) LOVES Healthy Hound Playground! We made the mistake of opening the car door when she was around and she jumped straight in, ready to go to doggie daycare! Grateful that you guys can accept last minute reservations because she obviously NEEDS a good play day today! The barking didn’t stop until I handed over her leash at the front desk! I was not moving fast enough for her taste this morning! Looking forward to our quiet evening of daycare hangover! 😉
Never in a million years would we have imagined that Fiona would let anyone besides us groom, bathe, or cut her nails. But today our beast of a girl had her first “spa day” and she was so proud of herself when we picked her up! Thank you Healthy Hound for your continued care of our girl. 🐶
Ferb (now Finn) wants to say hi! #formerfoster
Grover is done. It was a good day of play. #daycarehangover. #justgroverthings
Thanks to Erik D for giving Buddy his best haircut ever! You always make our handsome baby-dog look his best!
Clark is missing his daycare but enjoying the snow!!😍😍
The boys send their best holiday wishes! Thanks for being the best foster parents we could ever have while we waited to find our forever home.

Is it true there will be an Arlington location coming soon.
