Most of the time, you'll find him snoozing away, but when he's awake, he's a well-behaved and playful companion. He's great with other dogs and enjoys their company, but he also cherishes his alone time, especially on the bed. Hachi can be a tad stubborn at times, but he's always quick to listen to commands when it counts. We're lucky to have such a lovable and loyal member of our family!

  Breed: Basset Hound

  Weight: 50 lbs

  Age: 3 years old

  Gender: Female

I work in education so during my breaks, I often try to take Yuna out on multiple adventures and outings (hence her instagram handle @yunaventures). Yuna is the type to sleep a majority of the day, however she would never deny an outing. She’s always up for a good walk, and can get a little whiny if she misses her one hour evening walk. She’s typically shy with people but warms up pretty quick. My family says I’m strict with her training and schedule, but I think Yuna thrives with the structure and expectations. Yuna is fairly good with similar sized dogs and we often hang out with other local basset hounds.

It's natural to wonder if dog boarding is the right choice for your furry companion. The answer is a resounding YES! Dogs are social animals and thrive in the company of humans and other dogs. Here's why they are happier staying with a family in a dog boarding community:

  • Personal Attention: In a dog community, your dog will receive personalized care and attention from caring individuals who genuinely love dogs.

How Many Dogs Can You Own in Santa Clara County?

In Santa Clara County, the number of dogs you can own is regulated by local ordinances. As of our last update in September 2021, the specific regulations for the number of dogs allowed per household vary depending on the city or town within the county. Here are some general guidelines:

Santa Clara City:

  • The city of Santa Clara typically allows residents to own up to three dogs per household.

San Jose:

  • In San Jose, residents are usually allowed to have up to three dogs per household.

Sunnyvale:

  • Sunnyvale often permits residents to have up to four dogs per household.

It's essential to check with your local government or animal control to verify the most up-to-date regulations for the area where you reside.

Do I Need a License for My Dog in Santa Clara County?

Yes, in Santa Clara County, all dogs are required to be licensed. Dog licenses are essential for the safety and well-being of pets and the community. Here's what you need to know about dog licenses:

  • Licensing Process: To obtain a dog license, you will need to provide proof of your dog's current rabies vaccination and, in some cases, proof of spaying or neutering.
  • Annual Renewal: Dog licenses are typically renewed annually, and the fees may vary depending on factors such as whether your dog is spayed/neutered and whether you are a senior citizen.
  • Identification Tag: Once licensed, your dog will receive an identification tag that should be securely attached to its collar. This tag helps identify your dog and provides contact information if it gets lost.

Remember, keeping your dog licensed not only ensures compliance with the law but also helps authorities reunite you with your pet if it ever goes missing.

Can I Keep a Dog I Found in California?

If you find a lost dog in California, you are required to take certain steps to ensure the well-being of the animal and comply with the law:

  • Check for Identification: First, check the dog for any identification, such as a collar with tags or a microchip. If there are identification details, try to contact the owner immediately.
  • Contact Animal Control: If you cannot locate the owner, contact your local animal control or animal shelter and report that you have found a lost dog. They will guide you on the appropriate next steps.
  • Temporary Care: While waiting for animal control to arrive or during the owner-search process, provide the dog with temporary care, including food, water, and shelter.
  • Hold Period: In California, there is usually a mandatory "hold period" during which the animal shelter or animal control will keep the found dog to allow the owner time to claim it.
  • Adoption or Rescue: If the owner does not claim the dog within the hold period, it may be eligible for adoption or transfer to a rescue organization.

Remember, taking in a found dog without following the proper procedures could result in legal consequences. Always report the found dog to the appropriate authorities.

Why Are California Pet Laws So Strict?

California has implemented strict pet laws to ensure the welfare and safety of animals and the community. Several factors contribute to the state's emphasis on responsible pet ownership:

  • Animal Welfare: Strict laws help prevent animal neglect, abuse, and abandonment, promoting better care for pets.
  • Public Safety: Responsible pet ownership, including leash laws and licensing, reduces the likelihood of dog-related incidents in public spaces.
  • Overpopulation: By regulating pet ownership and promoting spaying and neutering, the state aims to control pet overpopulation and reduce the number of homeless animals.
  • Ecological Balance: Strict laws also address concerns regarding the impact of pets on local wildlife and ecosystems.
