Whether you have a worldly Manhattan dog-park dog or a sophisticated well-clad lap dog, we would love to have you as our guests on our 30 private acres of the Gettysburg Battlefield.
We love dogs and we love dog owners. We know that you don't want to leave your dog at home. And you shouldn't have to. You and your dog are welcome here.
You can hike over 6000 acres of national park land with your dog on a leash. Your dog will not be allowed inside the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum. Several Gettysburg restaurants have outdoor dining areas where dogs are allowed.
Dog shows are hosted in Gettysburg several times a year. We have enjoyed the company of 11 Bernese Mountain Dogs and 6 greyhounds during shows last year. We understand that you may sometimes have multiple dogs to show.
We also know that show dogs are excellent guests. We are less than a mile from the show site. Your dog will have room to exercize and you will have a special place to stay during the show.
Not sure if your dog will fit in at a bed and breakfast? Try taking your dog to a friends house and see what your dog does in a new environment. If you are thinking about leaving your dog in the room while you go out to dinner, try leaving your dog alone at your friends house first. Some dogs adapt well to new environments. Some dogs miss you too much to be left alone. If your dog whines and scratches at the door, she may not be ready to be by herself at a bed and breakfast. If you want to bring a crate, that may help.
If you are prepared for the outdoors and considerate of other guests, you and your dog will love it here! Come have a great time with your WHOLE family! Bring your dog!
