Your Vacation = Pups Staycation
 Your Paws…Our Passion

We offer a one of a kind boarding experience that you won’t find anywhere else. We are the only facility in New Jersey that offers a “slumber party experience” where your pup will spend the ENTIRE NIGHT with their furry friends and a human companion. At Pups@Play, a day of doggie socializing in a familiar setting effortlessly transitions into a relaxing evening and good night’s sleep. We call this the Pup STAYcation!

 It’s a slumber party where the fun never stops! With doggie beds, futons, lots of cozy blankets and floor mats available, your pup is free to sleep where and with whom they wish in a large space shared with the same-sized pals who have been temperament tested.
 A human to snuggle with all night! Your dog is never without a human companion as a human sleeps in the playroom every night so your pup has someone to cuddle up to if they so choose.
 Regular facebook updates for peace of mind. On pups@plays Facebook page, pics and videos are posted daily to show some of the day’s activities so make sure to check in and see if your pooch is famous.
 In person supervision. We “just say no to monitors” and never leave your pooch alone. All slumber parties are accompanied by a pup counselor at all times.

Pups@Play’s unique cage-free boarding and Staycations mean that your pup has non-stop company.  Before you can board with us, your pet must have a temperament test to be sure that everyone stays safe and happy during their stay.  Your pup must successfully complete a two-hour temperament test before he/she can enjoy our renowned open boarding.  So don’t disappoint your pup! 

What People Are Saying

We kept our 2 German shepherds here for 4 days while we were moving into our new house. The facility was very clean and our pups smelled great when we picked them up. Our pups were exhausted but really happy when we brought them back home. Will definitely use this place again!
