Holiday Hours 2022By glencadia2
This blog post contains our hours and holiday schedule, which should correspond to what you might see on Google Maps or generally in Google.
Our hours have not changed. These are the times when you can pick up or drop off your dog at the gate. If you want a tour of the facility, we now need to schedule those individually.
Monday 9:00 AM–12:00 PM
Tuesday 9:00 AM–3:00 PM
Wednesday 9:00 AM–3:00 PM
Thursday 9:00 AM–12:00 PM
Friday 9:00 AM–3:00 PM
Saturday 9:00 AM–12:00 PM
Here are the days when we will not be accommodating any visitors – not for tours, not to pick up or drop off dogs. The gate is closed on these days and we’re not open for business:
11/11/22 Closed Veterans Day
11/24/22 Closed Thanksgiving
11/25/22 Closed Black Friday
12/24/22 Closed Christmas Eve
12/25/22 Closed Christmas

1/1/23 Closed New Years Day
1/2/23 Closed New Years Day (observed)
I know that our limited access may be frustrating to some people out there. It is also kind of not too natural to me either (Will, owner here). I would love to invite everyone in and look around at all times. However, people in the kennel working stop to say hello, or show people around, and sometimes necessary work gets backed up. When we’re busy, we really do need to limit the people coming and out of here and appreciate your understanding. We love to show people our lovely facility and allow customers to meet our terrific team of dog care specialists in person. However, we just can’t have that many hours open to the public and get our work done.
Furthermore, my family lives here (Will, owner). We moved from Brooklyn in 2005 to a lovely quiet place out of the way… and there are times when it is nice not to have to worry about running into people, which might have kind of been part of the point of the whole operation.
Lastly, while you, dear reader, may be considerate of the time necessary to care for a lot of dogs in a busy farm setting, exceptionally agile in avoiding collisions with animals, expert in your control of your own dog in a new farm environment, and otherwise absolutely no trouble what so ever, some other person out there is going to show up, trip on a hole, let their dog run away and eat a chicken, watch their dog bark at a horse such that he might get kicked, sit down on a bench and want to pet every cute dog in the place, ask to see the upstairs and fall, drive their car into a ditch, honk the horn and set off the whole pack howling and barking, make brilliant observations like “up here in the country is must be nice to have so much free time and so little stress” or otherwise cause some kind of physical, mental or “livestockish” disruption.
Thank you everyone for your understanding.
