Where every dog has his day. can be a dog. feels at home. can socialize. is unleashed. makes friends. joins a pack.

New Jersey's premiere cage-free dog daycare facility open 7 days a week and 365 days a year...and grooming too!


Who we are.


Since 2005 Dog Days Daycare Center has provided a well organized and lovingly supervised cage-free environment to ensure that friendly dogs socialize, interact, and get adequate exercise throughout the day. Our mission is to create an environment just like home with plenty of indoor and outdoor room to play or relax. They have the run of the entire facility, inside and out, to come and go as they please all day long with access to fenced outdoor play areas available at all times. 

Oh! Did we mention that unless you ask for one, there are no cages or kennels here at Dog Days? That's right...not a single solitary one. Zero. Nada. Zilch. 



The canine social network.

Because a social dog is a happy dog.


What we do.


We provide a safe and comfy atmosphere for your pet to play and socialize with lots of new canine friends every day. We're Disney for dogs!


Going out of town? Have a vacation planned soon? We offer a homelike and cage-less atmosphere (unlike a traditional kennel) with TLC by the boat load.


Our Barker Shop offers full service grooming 5 days a week to keep your best friend looking and feeling his best. See what everyone is barking about!
