Our story

The Stoddards and the Red Hydrant

Our Time at Red Hydrant

Red Hydrant Inn opened in March 2018 and has grown into the business it is today. Clay and Rachel Stoddard took over in March 2020 to fulfill their dreams of owning a business that revolves around dogs and bettering their lives - whether that is grooming, training, daycare or boarding. At the Red Hydrant Inn, your dog isn't simply a pet; they're family. That's why we provide a healthy and safe recreational environment for your dog that meets both their physical and emotional needs.

DogSense Dog Training

Clay and Rachel have been training dogs for years through their business, DogSense. Through the communities of training and connecting beyond through to pet therapy, their history of care are hard to miss.

"I could not recommend Red Hydrant more! We have a 1-year-old high-energy Goldendoodle who loves all of the staff. We have used grooming, boarding, training, and daycare and have been more than pleased with all of it. We have seen significant improvements after wonderful training guidance from Clay. Clay, Rachel, and all of the staff make us feel comfortable and safe leaving our dog in their hands. The facility is always clean and taken care of. I would highly recommend them for any and all dog needs."
