Things blew up after TikTok user Tilly Washer recommended people visit the center after going there with her partner to celebrate their anniversary.
Her video, featuring dozens of retrievers frolicking in the grass, has gone viral and has received more than 4 million views on the video-based social media platform.
The video, which Tilly called ‘the best day ever’, shows the dogs running and playing in the field. They seem very receptive to hugs and petting.
Envious dog lovers said they would never leave the field if they got there, and the company has said on their website that they are now facing “ an exceptional amount of questions ” since reopening to the public on April 12.
