The concept for Pause is simple: provide unique quality products for discerning dog lovers and the dogs who love them, in a friendly, fun atmosphere geared toward community involvement.

COME: We've got the biggest selection of dog collars in the Hudson Valley; the best toys, beds and apparel on the market; organic treats and chews; a select line of quality dog and cat foods; all natural health and wellness products; unique gift items; fun accessories; eco-friendly products - and more!

STAY: We're community minded. One of our favorite things to do is to bring people together – with and without their dogs. Throughout the year we plan a host of educational and social events that all are welcome to attend.

SHOP: Most of our products give back in some way, because we like to work with companies who create items that are eco-friendly, support not-for-profits and that are made in the U.S.A. We also like to think that we're friendly and helpful and pride ourselves on getting you exactly what you need.
