Children age 12 and under are welcomed with an attentive parent, and will have the chance to join our staff and some puppies for a “Puppy Party” as an alternative to the second half of our presentation.

What to wear:

This tour operates rain or shine. The first part of the presentation is outside, and there are benches under a covered awning that protects guests from the weather.  The second half of the presentation is inside a theater building with seating for everyone.

What to bring:

You will want to bring your camera or cell phone for photos!  Bug spray is a good idea, too, as mosquitoes are prevalent during the summer months.  There is a small gift shop if you’re looking to pick-up a souvenir after your tour.

Cancellations must be made no less than 4 hours prior to the tour to receive a full refund. With less notice, a full refund will only be made if the space is rebooked. Group reservations (of 10 or more) booked in advance require 72 hour notice of cancellation.
