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.

We're Moving...and We Hope You'll Come Too!

Dear Pause Family & Friends,

We've had a great run in Rhinebeck over the past seven years! Don't worry...we aren't closing, but we are moving! We hope you will follow our trail to our new location in Red Hook at 10 Market Street (across from Williams and next to Get Juiced).

We've had so much fun with you...

   ∙Getting to know you and your dogs better and better with each of your visits
   ∙Selling quality products that we believe in because they are made in the USA, benefit not-for-profits or give back in some other way
   ∙Planning special events that have brought together members of the dog community from all over the region
   ∙Donating thousands of dollars to local and national animal rescue and advocacy efforts
   ∙Organizing a Dog Scout troop that provides educational and social activities for people of all ages throughout the Hudson Valley
   ∙Achieving our goal of winning Best of the Hudson Valley in 2014

Our focus will remain on serving the community in the best ways we know how. Our new location will still have the products and services you've come to know and love. Watch for:

   ∙The reintroduction of select brands of dog and cat food that we would confidently feed our own pets
   ∙A new "Top Dog" customer loyalty program
   ∙A brand new special event that will allow us to collaborate with some of our new friends in Red Hook
   ∙Training classes by Sirius Play Dog Training - these will start before we even open in our new location

Details on our moving dates, special events and more surprises coming soon!

We hope to see you soon!
