Our Story Background


We believe that every dog deserves a life filled with love and fun.
In 1989, it all began in the South Bay when we started helping
friends (and soon friends of friends) with pet sitting & dog walking.
Then in the early 1990’s while juggling corporate jobs and undergrad
courses we dreamed of a park-like setting where dogs could play their hearts
out and be loved all day long. Howie’s Doggie Daycare was a graduate school project –
the idea was formalized and came to life in late 1999. Oh yes – we passed the course
and graduated with honors. Howie’s was named after one of our own beloved dogs.
