OUR BACKGROUND

How We Got Started

The Howliday Inn was established in 1997 by Daniel Eells and Pamela Webb. After providing the highest quality of care and love to Portland's furriest companions, they made the difficult decision to retire in 2021 and the facility began new ownership by Dylan Lawrence.

From Dylan himself:

"Although I know it was not an easy decision for Dan and Pam to make, I am truly honored they have graciously chosen me to carry on their legacy at Howliday Inn.

 

From a very young age I’ve always had a love and special bond with dogs. This passion to be every canine’s best friend has led me to pursue a career in the pet care industry. Since 2010, I’ve helped manage several doggie daycares, grooming facilities, and training centers.

 

As the newest member of the pack, my goal is to never change all the incredible qualities and services that have made the Howl truly a special place, but to further build upon its success and continue to make your pet's experience with us even more positive and enriching.

 

It has always been a dream of mine to operate my own doggie daycare and hotel so I’m beyond excited to be on this journey with every human and dog that walks through our door. Woof!"
