Good news for dog lovers - thanks to our winters, the woods and meadows are basically tick free! You and your dog can enjoy miles of trails in the woods without worrying about those troublesome ticks. Campers travel here from all over the northeast to experience the great outdoors with their dogs!
Early September in upstate New York can be delightful with temps in a range from 70-80 degrees. Evenings are cool averaging 55 degrees. On some nights temps can dip into the 40s, so come prepared!
Please be aware that strong thunderstorms do pass through the area. If you know your dog(s) are sensitive to thunder you should come prepared with the items you usually need to calm your dogs to help them through the storms. Some suggestions would be melatonin (available in any health food store), ThunderShirts, and crates with covers.
If we do have a rainy day, then activities will be taken indoors and/or suspended, as need be. We obviously cannot provide refunds for inclement weather... but we'll do everything possible to make your vacation a relaxing and enjoyable one!
Morris, NY is in a rural area so we are a bit remote from hospitals and vets... at least a half hour drive... so please let us know if you have any medical conditions or if your dog has a medical condition which we should know about. We do have a nurse practitioner and emergency unit less than 5 minutes away so we have no worries but it's better to be prepared with information, especially with the dogs, too. The vet is quite a drive for an emergency situation.
