We were looking forward to this and it did not disappoint! The tour starts at the office where you are driven in a van to the kennels nearby. We learned about the breeds of the dogs and the operations of the facility (feeding and care of the dogs). Our guide Steve was very knowledgeable and obviously loves all the dogs.
Oh, the dogs! I was not exactly sure what to expect, but you can pet ( and get hugged and kissed) by as many dogs as you can stand :). They are all happy and love to interact. A few dogs, who are less social, are on the outer edge so that you are guided away from them. At the end you can also play with the puppies - a highlight for all. If you are visiting the area in the summer, this is something very unique and fun to do.
Do wear pants and shoes (not sandals) - makes dog 'hugs' less painful.
