Healthy Hound Playground
45910 Transamerica Plaza, Suite 109, Sterling; 703-464-0056

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 their 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.
