Dog Skool

what a terrific host! we enjoyed an invitation to a dog obedience class the evening we stayed. Both the host and another boondocker stayed after class (I'm used to it) and had a wonderful time sharing traveling tips and places of interest. If you love dogs you'll love this stop.

Quiet and pretty

We enjoyed our time staying with puppy raiser. We found a level spot in the shade of some trees. The kids really enjoyed meeting all the dogs that came for training. Would stay again for sure.

Absolutely beautiful property and helpful host!

We didn’t get to meet the host, but she was very helpful over the phone. She provided some suggestions of things for us to do which was nice. Her property is absolutely beautiful and well manicured. There’s a nice fenced off dog run that our dog enjoyed. Our baby enjoyed watching a family of deer eating next door.
We have a 40 foot Class A motorhome towing a 20 foot trailer with a Jeep on it; it fit, but took some slight maneuvering. :) All in all, it was a lovely stay and we enjoyed ourselves.

Peaceful Location, Helpful Host

Beautiful location with plenty of parking options even for our 41’Class A with tow vehicle. Host was very gracious and helpful with driving directions so that we didn’t take unnecessary roundabouts through town. She arrived home late but let us come into the training center area with our pup, Gypsy, and visit, giving us some great training things to work on with Gypsy. Host also directed us to a great restaurant for breakfast and gave us the best route out for the direction we were traveling. She is very knowledgeable, friendly and kind.

In the evening we saw plenty of deer enjoying the small meadow area and watched the beautiful fog set in. This area of NY is gorgeous!

Charming

The location was beautiful, the host was gracious & offered not only a great list of things to do, but had a delightful campfire with us. Don’t miss a meal or two at Sprague’s.

Awesomeness in NY

Wonderfully gracious host! Beautiful scenery and peaceful spot to hangout off the road. We were welcomed upon arrival and had the place to ourselves this stay. We were given all kinds of local info and she even provided brochures for surrounding attractions. I wish we could have stayed in area longer but it definitely warrants a trip back! We are so grateful for our host sharing her time and land with us!

An awesome stay!

A lovely place to stay. The town is cute and they have a little park not far that has a trail and playground and bball court. There is also rock city not far from there, it's definitely a must see! The host was friendly, the property was nice and well maintained. The dog run area was clean and my dog LOVED it! Try to follow the directions closely, because our Google maps definitely took us to the wrong location the first time. Highly recommend, thanks for everything!

Puppy heaven on the road

Our stay was amazing. You don’t find anywhere more dog friendly than this BW. We will definitely be trying to stop back in again! Thank you for everything :)

Super lady, great place to camp.

Puppyraiser is a generous and knowledgeable host, whom I would recommend to anyone wanting to dry camp in the Olean, NY area. Genie and I greatly enjoyed the camping and the time spent around the fire. Hope to see you again, Puppyraiser!

Above and beyond

Puppyraiser was an amazing host. Plenty of parking spots in a quiet area. She greeted us upon arrival and gave great recommendations for places around near by. We shared a fire and stories, toured her awesome dog facilities, and certainly feel like we made a new friend. When we were leaving we noticed some odd things happening with our rig. Not only did she have repair shop referrals but she also offered to let us stay on her property while it was being fixed. We will definitely stay here again.

Beautiful views, plenty of room

This was our second BW stay, and our experience here has confirmed that this is an amazing way to travel with our camper! Host was very friendly and welcoming, the camping area was lovely. We chose a spot on a grassy area with access to the 15amp hookup (we didn’t need 30 amp on this trip.) The grass was on firm ground and there was no problem setting up or pulling out.

We enjoyed a great visit and tour of the dog training facility. Most helpful was the tips we received on things to do in the area—including having breakfast on departure day at the Sprague’s Maple Farms. Highly recommend it!!

We will definitely come here again. Thank you, MOE-Z INN for your stellar hospitality!

Chilling at the campfire

We really enjoyed D’s hospitality! We had a lot of fun chatting around the campfire. We also met another couple who gave us more tips in addition to what our hostess gave us. The spot we stayed in was beautiful! There was a dog run that our puppies could enjoy. D had some natural repellent for the dogs and ourselves to keep the mosquitoes & ticks away. We would definitely recommend staying at this site!

Good times!

We had a great time staying here! Denise was the perfect host! She helped us with brochures of the area which made our stay more enjoyable. She helped us out with information as we are "newbies" to the experience. We hope to make our way back again.

Wealth of Knowledge and So Welcoming!

Our visit with Puppy Raiser was wonderful!

We felt totally at home and very welcome. Her property is gorgeous and there is lots of room to park and turn around. It was also super quiet - wonderful sleep!

She told us where to visit in the area, but also in the surrounding areas. A wealth of knowledge!

We had a fabulous time and hope to return in the future! 😊

Quaint & Wonderful

Exquisite property located just outside Allegheny National Forest and very close to the Allegheny River. Very picturesque and quiet - except for the periodic loud motor vehicle on the road nearby (apparently a weekend river rafting traffic/shuttle thing mainly). D is super sweet and mellow and will definitely hold a conversation with you. There are a few parking options and genuine 30amp (maybe 50 too?) hookup available. My only complaint is that the area is so forested it swallowed my brand new RC airplane on its maiden flight :( 😬

Quiet and comfortable!

Puppy Raiser's host location is wonderful, easy in/out place to stay, and Olean is a great little city with so much to do!
Our host met us with a warm smile and umbrella in hand in the rain to assist us into our parking location. Our trip had been a rainy and frosty 6 day adventure prior to our arrival, unseasonably cold and rainy.
There are multiple location to park and we were able to park the Rv where it wouldn't damage the beautiful lawn as the ground was quite saturated due to the weather.
The host is so easy going, funny and accommodating. Grateful our paths have crossed. We hope to return someday, or if she can get away to host her in NH.

Wonderful stay

We loved our stay. Our host was so welcoming, patient and helpful. She taught us a few tricks of the trade, invited us to join her for a fire at her fire pit and helped with training our little dog. I was so blessed to be able to do some yoga with her the day before we left. The property is beautiful and we saw sooo many deer! We will be back to visit next season for sure!

Had so much fun!

My hostess was sooo nice! She made sure I was all set and that my dogs were happy. She is a dog trainer and was kind enough to show me some tricks on how to get my dogs to behave! The weather didn't cooperate so we didn't get to visit around the fire ring. We had a very nice visit at the dog training facility. Great time!

Great first experience

Last night’s stay was our debut with Boondockers. So glad we chose PuppyRaiser! She was a delightful host and our spot was picturesque and quiet. She treated us to a campfire too. Very memorable - highly recommend!

Great stay!

We enjoyed our hostess and her information and history of the area. The site was level and easy to get into with our big rig. Good cell signal. We enjoyed sharing stories, exploring the area and will definitely keep in touch!
Hope to meet up out on the road! Thanks!

Enjoyed my time. Denise was very knowledgeable about RVING and places to travel to. Denise shared her firewood for a joyful fire under the stars. Olean is such a cute little town. Plan on going back in the fall.

The best of the best!

Wow!
Amazing host!
Puppyraiser sets the bar high. The host is so skilled at her profession and we received so much more than a place to park.
I’ve learned a wealth of knowledge about building a healthy relationship with my puppies.
She is holistic and extremely intelligent about the health of her animals. She’s actually full of information about many useful things. She guided us to great locations for day trips with the kiddos and blessed the little boys everyday with something she lended or treated them.
We can’t thank her enough and will for sure make a return in the future. More because we choose to friend her and want to see her again.
The views are stunning and her land is well cared for.
My boys enjoyed the freedom to run while I supervised.
Thank you so much puppyraiser!
New friend🥰

What a beautiful location on the edge of the Allegheny National Forest. We had a campfire keeping 6 feet distancing and celebrated her mother's 80th birthday with song and wonderful conversation! I hope to return in the future!

Praise Puppyraiser!!

She was incredible! She was so welcoming and gave us great recommendations of local places to visit. We had truck trouble as soon as we arrived and she graciously allowed us to extend our stay while our truck was getting repaired, even though she had to go out of town. She also invited us to observe the doggie agility courses that were running at her business while we were there. My 6 year old son absolutely LOVED that! 2 of the clients even offered him to run the course with their dogs! We would have never been exposed to that experience without having this stay and using Boondockers Welcome. We will certainly use it again and we HIGHLY recommend Puppyraiser!!! Thank you Denise!!! We will be leaving tomorrow. If we don't see you again, have a safe drive back !

Perfect location

Unfortunately we didnt meet our host, but this is a wonderful location to explore Allegany state park, rock city park and Kinzu State park. Beautiful views from the rig. Dont be like us, follow the directions that Moe Z Inn provides.

A Wonderful Respite

Puppyraiser is a great host, who provides not only a quiet, pleasant place to stay, but also is a wealth of knowledge for what to do in the area. I was able to fit the list of suggested places to eat or visit in with my housekeeping tasks that I was in need of completing. I enjoyed the quiet, scenic setting along with the conversations and sharing of stories with Puppyraiser. This is a stop that I would both recommend and revisit.

Great overnight stop!

We stayed at this location for one night, but the beautiful view of the trees and land from our window made it so tempting to stay longer. The host was very friendly and accommodating, and we had a great time conversing with her. She has a neat house and business and we enjoyed hearing about it and meeting her pups. Will definitely stop by again if we are in the area.

Wonderful Host, Wonderfull Stay

Puppyraiser is a genuinely nice and welcoming Boondocker host! The property is mostly flat and well-kept. We had 15 amp hook up and water. White-tail deer in our view morning and evening. Only two miles from Olean. She made a bathroom and shower accessible to us from an outside entry door. We enjoyed our time there and getting to know Our host. We highly recommend staying, if you are in the Olean, NY area.

Excellent Host!

MOE-Z Inn is an amazing place. Thick green vegetation with trees and mountains in the background provides the perfect backdrop to view out your camper window. Heavenly.

It is very quiet here with very little road activity.

Our host gave us multiple choices on where to park. We chose the one next to her house so that our door opens up to this knock dead glorious backdrop.

You could not ask for a kinder host. She went out of her way to make sure we were all tucked in. And, she gave us a lot of information on things to see and do in the area. Thankfully we took full advantage of her suggestion. Lots to see and do around here.

We would recommend anyone traveling through this area to stop by and say hello to ‘Puppyraiser’. This was a great stop over.
