Holistic Home

At Doggie Adventure every effort has been made to keep the environment as non-toxic as possible. In the exterior, no lawn chemicals of any kind are used on the premises. Although there are a fair number of weeds in the lawn, their appearance is kept presentable by keeping the grass cut short. The deck (where we have 'Doggie Luncheons and B-B-Q's' in the summer time) is made of cedar, not arsenic-laced pressure-treated wood. The well water has tested negative for contaminants, and is free of the chemical additives used in public drinking water. The poop is picked up multiple times daily.

The interior was also constructed with an eye toward environmental friendliness. The sheetrock was sprayed with Safe Seal – a vapor barrier designed to keep out-gassing of toxic contaminants to a minimum. The paint is 'Zero VOC' (volatile organic compounds) for the same reason. The carpeting is New Zealand wool to minimize the presence of formaldehyde & other noxious materials used in standard carpeting.

Our doggie residents and guests eat organic dog biscuits which are shipped in from an organic dog biscuit bakery in North Carolina. Daniel is the baker at the S'PETacular Dog Biscuit Bakery who makes several flavors of Doggie Divines (organic peanut butter & carob; organic chicken-carrot), as well as his own line of exquisite organic treats. His organic liver-bacon treats are made with organic chicken livers and organic bacon (nitrate- and nitrite-free). These treats are extremely popular with our residents & guests alike.

We also understand the growing concern that dog parents feel about the issue of over-vaccination. Because we use titer-testing rather than routine vaccination on a predetermined schedule, we also accept dogs that can show proof of immunity through titer tests for Parvo and Distemper. Although the rabies vaccine is required every 3 years by New York State law, animals who are not candidates for the vaccine can submit proof of immunity through a Rabies titer test and note from their veterinarian.
