Our Background

How it All Began

Start with a horse farm in Middletown, NJ, then add a local school teacher searching for a way to stay at home with her beloved dogs, cats, and horses, and you have all the ingredients for the beginning of Dogs On The Farm & Cats, Too. Karen Leipzig, the founder of Dogs On The Farm, was a special education teacher in Middletown for almost twenty years. Although teaching was fulfilling, her animals were her passion and it was hard to leave them behind every day. Determined to live her passion, Karen Leipzig opened Dogs On The Farm & Cats Too in the Fall of 2002. Now, Dogs on the Farm & Cats Too is a full service pet resort offering boarding, daycare, grooming, training, and pet sitting. Karen’s sons, daughter-in-law, and baby granddaughter have come on board to make it truly a family business.

Location! Location! Location!

Located on an historic country estate and horse farm in the beautiful Chapel Hill section of Middletown, New Jersey, Dogs on the Farm is a full-service facility that keeps your pets happy and healthy while you’re away. Magnificent Black Friesians and miniature horses graze peacefully next to the play areas in the farm’s paddocks. Set atop a hill that at night overlooks the Sandy Hook Bay and the New York Skyline, Dogs on the Farm & Cats, Too is a convenient option for commuters, ideally located between the Middletown Train Station and the New York Ferries of Atlantic Highlands, the Highlands, and Belford.
