Spacious & Comfortable Accommodations
Traditional dog boarding can often feel confined and overwhelming. At Puppy University ®, we believe in providing a different kind of experience. We've completely reimagined dog boarding to prioritize the ultimate comfort, relaxation, and freedom of your furry friend.
Instead of confining them to conventional kennels, our boarding guests enjoy a spacious and open environment. They can stretch out on comfy cots to unwind after a day filled with fun and adventure. We want every dog to feel at ease and truly enjoy their stay with us, creating memories of comfort and joy.
24/7 Supervision & Individual Attention
Each pup receives 24/7 supervision and personalized attention from our dedicated staff, ensuring their wellbeing and providing a sense of security. Our team of trained professionals are passionate about making sure every dog feels safe, comfortable, and loved throughout their stay.
Our goal is to make their time with us a memorable and happy experience, filled with boundless love and attention.

I’ve been bringing my beagle, George, to Puppy University since May 2020. I work in New Jersey and live in New York, but even on my days off I will travel to NJ to bring George to Puppy University. I have tried daycares near where I live for days that I’m not in NJ and they were awful. This place cares about all the dogs and treats them like their own. George is always so happy when he gets to daycare and is nice and tired when I pick him up. The best part of this place is that they don’t just like put the dogs in a pen and leave them. The staff members engage with them all day! We love Puppy University so much! Also a note on the training: George had his training sessions here as a puppy. When anyone heard I was getting a beagle, they told me how terrible beagles are and that they are so difficult to train. George is so obedient and listens to all of his commands thanks to the trainers at Puppy University.Read More Reviews »
My little pup, Mango, has been going to Puppy U since November 2021 and I have to say that this place is literally the best doggy day care in all of Hudson County. The facility itself is clean, bright, and welcoming, the owners and all staff members are friendly, professional and super sweet to my little Mango. They have great seasonal activities for the pups, excellent grooming services, and some of the staff members offer boarding /dogsitting. Most importantly, I know my pup is in good hands and that he always comes home happy and tired. Thank you Puppy University for everything that you do. Mango and I love you guys! ❤🐶🤗Read More Reviews »

I love seeing my dog Kyro happy and excited coming to this place. Every time I would take him, he knows where to go. Run to the front door and wait to go in. I feel secure leaving him for half of the day knowing that he's being taken care of nice people. All of them are so very nice, friendly and professional!! Keep it up!!!Read More Reviews »
Puppy University has been so helpful in training my puppy. As a first time pet owner, they take the time to teach you and go step by step on what is needed to help your pooch be trained. Day care services are awesome, my puppy comes home tired and knocked out. 🐕🐶🐾Read More Reviews »
At our facility, we require male dogs over 6 months be neutered. Female dogs do not have to be spayed, but they can not be present in the facility if they are experiencing their heat cycle.
We aim to provide a secure environment for all our furry guests. This helps maintain safety and minimize conflicts.
Your dog does not have to be a current member of our daycare. However, all dogs must pass a Meet & Greet to determine eligibility prior to their boarding stay. We also recommend your dog visit our daycare 1-3 times before boarding in order to ease the transition, become comfortable in our facility and ensure a more enjoyable and stress-free experience.
All boarding dogs will participate in our dog daycare during the day.
Yes, our caring staff are on-site 24/7 to monitor, care for, and play with the dogs overnight during their boarding stay. Dogs are never left unattended.
Boarding costs vary by facility, amenities offered, location, and other factors like peak seasons.
Our daily boarding rate is $85 per night. We offer a 10% discount for stays longer than 10 nights.
Peak dates have an additional $15 dollars added per night.
Because we offer an open-concept overnight boarding service, all dogs have to be friendly and pass our Meet & Greet in order to be considered for boarding.
