Martha Clara Vineyards is beginning its third year of Vines and Canines, a dog friendly day where guests can bring their canine along as they explore the vineyard on an informative tour. The vineyard hosts the walk roughly twice a month and it lasts about 45 minutes, giving pets an opportunity to play with other dogs, said Kelly Tuthill, tour guide and event assistant for Martha Clara.
The Riverhead vineyard asks that participants bring a dog food item to donate to local shelters in need. After superstorm Sandy, all donations were given to a shelter in New Jersey.
“We try to do them as often as we can,” Ms. Tuthill said. “It is always great to help.”
