Our Background

Wintergreen Kennels was established in 1974 by Jean & Lew Miller in response to the need for a quality boarding and grooming facility for pets in Western Massachusetts. The Millers had been raising dogs here on the farm since the mid 1950’s, and started a boarding and grooming business was a natural extension of their lifetime interest in dogs. Their daughter Judith took over the reins of the kennel in 1981, and was soon joined by her husband Michael P. Conlin. Both of the Conlin children worked at the kennel as youngsters and young adults. The Conlin’s daughter, Flannery Jean Conlin Wiemer, is now the manager and a part owner of the kennel. Together Flannery and Judith co-own and run the kennel.

Our Services


Each dog has an individual indoor/outdoor run, and for your pup’s comfort all floors are radiantly heated in the winter. In the warmer months, fans continually circulate air to keep your pet comfy. Cats enjoy a “kitty condo” divided into four sections with room for eating, privacy, resting, and stretching. We keep detailed on each pet and keep owners updated with nightly report cards!


At Camp Wintergreen, we practice active, hands on daycare. We provide a safe place for your dog to socialize with others. Camp Wintergreen is a place to relax, to have fun, and to just plain be a dog!


We offer expert grooming of all dog breeds. From poodle feet to puppy cuts, from Mastiffs to Chihuahuas, our groomers have seen it all!
