   New to the area and just in time for the holidays is Big Hill Dog Boarding LLC. This fledgling business is licensed  and owned by Greg and Christina Gaub. It is operated by the entire family which includes Kaytlynn – nine years old, and Austin – eight years old.

   The Gaubs are animal lovers. They own a wide array of pets. The extensive list includes: two dogs, six horses, five cows, three sheep, five cats, six chickens, and one rabbit. Gaubs’ family friends joke with them calling their home place the “Funny Farm”, with a little of everything and not a lot of anything. “We came up with the idea about two years ago when we didn’t have a place to leave our animals,” said Christina.

   Besides offering clean, warm kennels with individual adjoining outside dog runs, the facility offers special programs including: one-on-one playtime, 24/7 background music to relieve stress, socialization time with other dogs and off leash adventures, as appropriate. The Gaubs also offer in-town pick-up services. They will be constructing a larger building in the spring of 2016 which will offer kitty condos and separate areas for other small pets.

   For more information, you may contact them on Facebook, email the kennel at:, or call 406-891-1DOG (1364).
