Easy to get to from Rte 390S and the NYS thruway (about 8 minutes from both). We are located just 1/4 mile south of Erie Station Road, just past Riverton.
You will have access to a fenced play area and nature path for your enjoyment....and your dogs! The path is open late May to September.
Therefore, prong collars, choke chains, martingale collars or any collar that tightens about the neck are not allowed. Flat collars are allowed if your dog does not pull (nor choke or cough).
That is right folks! You do not need to hurt or make your dog feel uncomfortable to get behavior. We don't put hands on them to put them in position nor do we use the collar to push or pull them........
