Dog Boarding

Luxury Dog Boarding

Boarding your furry family member can be a nerve-wracking experience for pet parents, so we’ve made it our goal to ensure that your pet has tons of fun at our dog boarding facilities in Livingston and Montclair. Our overnight guests enjoy the following benefits:

  • Cage-free Experience – No 12-hour days hanging solo in a kennel here. Pups@Play offers a large, climate-controlled, safe and clean play area, with TV, piped-in music and non-stop company for all pups who pass a sociability test.
  • Suites for more Reserved Pups – Is your pet selectively social? Does he/she enjoy alone time? No problem! Our Montclair location offers a variety of suite sizes for dogs who prefer to chill on their own or with a sibling.
  • Daycare Privileges – All dogs boarding with us are welcome to join the pack for daycare at no additional cost.
  • Slumber Parties – We are the only facility in New Jersey where your pet can play with friends all day and sleep with them at night. With doggie beds, futons, lots of cozy blankets and floor mats available, your pup is free to rest where and with whom they wish.
  • In Person Supervision – Who needs monitors? We sure don’t. That’s because a human companion stays all night to oversee the crowd, give pats and cuddles, and make sure everyone goes to bed at a reasonable hour!
  • Social Media Updates – Pics and videos are posted on our Facebook page daily to highlight some of the day’s activities and feature some of the furry participants.

Don't spend your 4th of July worrying about your dog’s safety - bring them to board with us instead! We'll make sure they are safe, relaxed, and having a good time, so you can relax and enjoy fireworks & other festivities with friends and family. Space is limited and we expect to fill up, so give us a call to reserve your pet's spot today!
