We are Jonathan & Beth Hallett, the owners of Stone Meadow Kennels, and we make a commitment to excellence in providing you the finest quality pet care.
We understand that finding a loving and totally committed caregiver for your pets when you have to travel is a long process, and we want to fill that role for you.
As proud guardians to four dogs and two birds and our vast experience, we feel uniquely qualified to be your pet caregiver of choice. Our pets are VIP members of our family, as your pets are in your family.
Jon is a degreed business major and formerly a manufacturing manager from Digital (DEC), Silicon Valley Group and other semiconductor companies. He is also a trained Obedience and Behavioral Problem Consultant. He is certified by the Connecticut K9 Education Center in Newington, CT, under the auspices of the CT Department of Education and the CT Department of Agriculture. This background gives him keen insight into the care and well-being of our boarders, and the credentials for his dog care expertise.
Beth is a degreed chemist and manufacturing engineer and manager, who worked in the semiconductor manufacturing field at companies such as Advanced Micro Devices and Silicon Valley Group. She also worked in Zurich, Switzerland for 10 years for a Raytheon company as Director of Quality Control, and is fluent in German. She later turned her talents to pursuing a Master’s degree in Computer Science at Pace University. Now she applies her know-how and experience to implementing and maintaining best practices and top quality control concepts to make Stone Meadow Kennels your best boarding choice.
We spend our free time training and competing in dog agility competitions, playing with our boarders, tending our perennial and vegetable gardens or hiking the beautiful local trails. There isn’t a moment when we are not thinking up improvements and better ways to make our boarders’ experience be the best. With a combined total of thirty-five years of pet care experience with business & quality control know-how, we have focused our energies on making Stone Meadow the best kennel for you.

Jon poses for the camera with his Pembroke Welsh Corgi Reinwood’s Lady Jane AXP AJP NFP CL2 “Jane”, who loves agility **almost** as much as her treats.
Dog agility is a demanding sport, and we need to stay in shape to keep up with our speedy dogs!
