The Good Hound will determine when it is necessary to close due to severe weather conditions or emergency situations. When Newton Public Schools are closed due to severe weather, all services will be canceled.
In the event of heavy rain, snow or dangerous road conditions, services may be delayed or canceled. The Good Hound will try to notify you at least 24 hours prior via e-mail if services are delayed or cancelled due to severe weather. During inclement weather, before canceling, we will always try to let your dog out for a quick pee especially for those who are at work and are unable to come back to the house to let your dog out.
The Good Hound still runs all services in the rain or snow. All of our outings are an hour long. If there is heavy rain, snow, thunderstorms or extreme cold or hot temperatures during our outings, we may shorten services to 45 minutes or 30 minutes depending on the severity. Therefore, you could expect your dog to be dropped off earlier than usual.
