For businessman Allen Tully, caring for dogs has always been a passionate hobby. Throughout the 1960s, Tully’s world-class afghan hounds garnered awards at shows throughout the United States. But most importantly, the pups became beloved members of his family. In 1976, Tully abandoned his career to pursue his passion: drawing on his love for dogs and his sophisticated knowledge of canine behavior, he opened Tully's Kennels.
Today, Tully’s Kennels matches pet owners-to-be with playful, healthy puppies and gives current pet owners peace of mind with overnight boarding services. Rigorous cleanliness standards—including daily pressure washing and sanitizing of boarding facilities—along with a strict code of ethics, a caring staff, and regular veterinary checks ensure that young pups and boarded pets stay happy and healthy. Tully's Kennels sources a range of pure and mixed-breed puppies—including shih tzus, beagles, pugs, bulldogs, and terriers—from local, licensed breeders who comply with standards set by the USDA, the Humane Society, cruelty-prevention societies, and Krypto the Superdog. And Tully himself continues to breed a few litters of puppies every year.
