The Carroll County Board of Zoning Appeals has denied a request from a Detour woman to house 10 or more dogs at her kennel in the 8200 block of Sixes Bridge Road.In 1990, the board gave Elizabeth B. Ferro permission to operate a kennel with a maximum of 10 dogs. After someone complained in October that she had more than 10, she asked to enlarge the kennel, according to the board's written decision.Ms. Ferro, her sister and her mother have 17 dogs and 48 cats on the property, and the dogs often run loose in the neighborhood, the board said, contending that "Ms. Ferro has demonstrated little regard for her neighbors."

A Uniontown dog kennel still has a few more hoops to jump through before getting approval to expand its business to handle up to 200 canines. Earlier this month, the Carroll County Planning and Zoning Commission raised questions about Camp Yuppie Puppy's request to construct a kennel in the 3400 block of Uniontown Road, where the dog boarding and grooming business has operated since 1994. County officials told kennel co-owner William Quinn that he would need to provide more details about the project and account for discrepancies between plans he supplied to the commission recently and those presented in 2004 to the county Board of Zoning Appeals.

In the dog days of August, when the people go away, a holiday for dogs begins on a narrow road of cornfields, split-rail fences and a red barn. The sound of car tires crunching over gravel signals arrival at Reisterstown Boarding Kennel's "Pet Resort & Spa." A small white husky with a blue kerchief around her neck enters the lobby. She looks from her owner to the kennel door and back to her owner again before making a mad dash into the kennel. According to advertisements, spa services here rival those offered by the best hotel chains.

The foxhounds at Carrollton Hounds Kennels know who Dr. Ann Schneider and her assistant Tristin Buckstad are and what they're there for. Still, the hounds' baying at the visitors can be heard some distance away until Bob Shirley, a hunt master, arrives and quiets them. Once quiet, 11 hounds are chosen, one by one, to donate blood to Schneider's Eastern Veterinary Blood Bank for canines. Schneider, a veterinarian who operates the canine blood bank in Annapolis, spent a day three weeks ago making her monthly trip to the Carrollton Hounds Kennels outside Hampstead to draw blood from a group of the club's 39 hounds.

A mother and daughter hoping to build a kennel in a Green Spring Valley residential area dropped their challenge yesterday to a Baltimore County ruling that would have blocked one of two plans they have put forward. But Gretel White and her daughter, Erika Lanasa, who want to build a kennel for 50 dogs and 50 cats on their 6-acre property in the 7800 block of Greenspring Ave., said they will pursue another option, despite neighborhood opposition. Last summer, Deputy Zoning Administrator Timothy M. Kotroco ruled against giving White and Lanasa permission to build a kennel within 200 feet of their property line, abutting the Baltimore Beltway.

Winick after the Winicks and neighbors announced they had added two conditions to the original proposal to pacify residents' concerns.

Driving along Greenspring Avenue, just north of the Baltimore Beltway, can be visually jarring these days. Two bright yellow signs blare a terse message to motorists passing through the neighborhood of $300,000 houses nestled on heavily wooded lots at the entrance to Green Spring Valley. "Stop the kennel," says one. "Protect our environment and property values," reads the other. The signs were erected by residents who oppose a plan by Greta White and her daughter Erika Lanasa to build a kennel for 50 dogs and 50 cats on their property in the 7800 block of Greenspring Ave. "Once a commercial establishment comes in, you have an epidemic," said Phyllis Karpe, who lives up the road from the proposed kennel.
