Our property was part of a 400+ acre farm. The house was a red oak log cabin it had 2 rooms and was 2 stories, built in the 1840s. A 60' x 40' banked hay barn was added in the 1890s. The farm had cattle, sheep, horses, chickens and pigs. In the early 1950s, a small and large animal veterinarian bought the property and lived in the house and built his office, operating room and recovery center. The veterinarian sold the property to a family that managed a dog kennel in Sewickley. They expanded the business and added buildings and wildlife. Peacocks and guinea hens were added residents.
In the early 1960s, Interstate 79 was built and divided the farm. Red Mud Hollow Road was moved.
We bought the 21 acre package in 1990 and renamed it “The Kennel
” at Red Mud Hollow Farm.
Prior to purchasing the property and business, we owned and operated a horse boarding, training, and riding facility in Bucks County, Pa. "The Olde Crossing Farm." We learned the importance of providing quality services to our customers and guests. Our reputation for providing boarding, grooming exercise, and day care service with individual attention
is part of our foundation. Our solid reputation for catering to the needs of individual guests
is in our DNA. We are small enough to know your pet's name and please forgive us if we forget yours … until you mention theirs!
