History

 old photo of original ownersIn 1970 two women broke ground and started the original building of Robinhood Kennels. Lyn Griffin who later became Lyn Grant and Barbara Forehand who later became Barbara Genthner met as neighbors while living on Robinhood Road in the 1960’s. They began training Labrador Retrievers and participating in retriever field trials together. They named their personal dogs after the street upon which they lived hence the Robinhood name was born. Soon others began soliciting their training expertise so they decided to sell their homes and search for property on which to start a dog training business. They found an ideal fifty acre parcel off Old Bainbridge Road and soon moved out with five young boys and one husband in tow. They quickly erected the first kennel building which contained sixteen half covered outside dog runs with a small office and feeding station. The women operated on a shoe string budget at first reinvesting all their earnings into the business. They soon added attached wings to the original building bringing the total number of runs to thirty six. Expansion was necessary to keep up with the demand for training dogs and to accommodate a growing number of boarding requests.

A few years and two new marriages later Lyn and Barbara decided to split the business and the property with Barbara taking the training side of the business and Lyn taking the boarding side. Eventually Lyn bought out Barbara’s share and became sole owner of Robinhood Kennels. She soon designed a new type of building with completely enclosed heated/air conditioned runs and guillotine doors leading to large outside exercise yards intended solely for small dogs. It was such a success clients with large dogs were pleading for similar boarding facilities for their pets. So Lyn drew up and commissioned her first indoor heated-a/c runs for large dogs. She also decided to erect a small separate building just for cats with their own completely fenced in exercise area.

Over the next twenty years all of the original buildings were either torn down or modified to house enclosed climate controlled runs. Only one outdoor covered wing remains and it has been improved as well. After more than thirty years of being the driving force behind Robinhood Kennels, Lyn turned much of the running of the business over to her son Jay. She went on to pursue her other loves of horseback riding and traveling. Jay who has worked in every facet of the kennel since he was fourteen now is in charge of most of the daily operations. This small business has thrived for over four and a half decades by following the simple guidelines established by its original owner/founder. At Robinhood Kennels we strive to offer our pet guests a pleasant boarding experience in a clean healthy environment at a reasonable price.
