Goldwood Kennels

Goldwood Kennels was completely closed from March 27 to May 4. “We have a family business that started in 1936, and this was the first time in the history of Goldwood Kennels that we have ever been completely closed,” said Erin Hilton, one of the three owners. “It was very difficult for our staff — who we care about very much — our customers and for us as a family to have to close our doors. The kennel was very quiet. That is a very strange sensation to walk through an empty kennel when you are used to being greeted by barks and tails wagging.”
