|Glencadia Dog Farm: Providing an Active Boarding Stay
Glencadia Dog Camp
When pet parents must travel, they want to ensure that their four-legged friend is able to have fun, be healthy, and come home sane and happy. That’s what Glencadia Dog Camp offers to traveling dog owners in New York City.
Unlike kennels, where dogs remained caged in cramped quarters, Glencadia provides pets with the opportunity to roam and frolic with other animals on 15 acres of land. The property is set back a half mile from a country road, far from traffic and other urban disturbances.
The dog camp’s slogan is “When you go on vacation, so can your dog” and owner Will aims to make every animal’s stay at Glencadia an ideal getaway. The facility is a dog’s dream; it’s built on a farm and features a large barn and plenty of room to run freely, while remaining safe thanks to several fenced in yards. Depending on the dog’s temperament, Glencadia provides several ideal play options. Pets can enjoy mixing and mingling with other animals in a large yard. Smaller yards are also available for times when a different group of dogs is on the larger area but they can almost always get outside when they want to. And for more retiring dogs, there is always a bed or a room upstairs to sneak off to.
Glencadia Dog Camp puts safety first. Dogs are supervised whenever they are roaming the grounds and enjoying each other’s company. The sleeping accommodations are comfortable and safe, much different from small, cold cages at your local kennel. Animals can select a cage or a bed in a barn, depending on their normal sleeping habits. The building is heated, and also provides air conditioning so as to keep older animals comfortable.
About the business
Glencadia Dog Campwas created eight years ago, and operates in Columbia County, New York, which is roughly two hours north of New York City. To accommodate busy pet parents in New York City and Brooklyn, the team at Glencadia provides pick up and drop off services twice weekly. At any one time, the camp usually hosts roughly 20 dogs. In order to properly manage the needs and desires of these animals, the Glencadia staff includes a trained veterinary technician, as well as a professional dog groomer.
Protective pet owners enjoy the team at Glencadia’s interest in providing pet parents with updates about how their dog is doing during his or her time at the camp. The company’s blog is regularly updated with photos and videos featuring the dogs that are enjoying the facilities at that time. Pet parents can get a sense of what their dogs are doing while they are away, and take comfort in knowing that their beloved pooches are having a safe and enjoyable experience that’s full of plenty of exercise.

Another user states, “Yes, Glencadia does at-home pickup and drop off. I thought they were great.”
One satisfied client notes, “I have sent my dog to Glencadia a number of times and I love it. I even look at the blog when my dog is not there, just watching the seasons pass in the country from time to time, looking in on Will’s kids playing with dogs, seeing what’s new up in the boonies. My dog leaps into the van and we’re all set. Great thing. Thanks.”

Animals are supervised during their stay, and fights are prevented thanks to the employees’ exceptional abilities to observe and understand a dog, thus anticipating any problems before they actually happen.
Will I get hit with a cancellation fee if I must cancel the reservation a few days prior to the boarding date?
