Exclusive Dog Boarding Services

For NYC Doggies Dogs

Our dog boarding service is limited to dogs that we already know very well through our other services, or to dogs in training.

Boarding no more than three dogs at any one time, we ensure that everyone gets a lot of attention and that we are able to take care of all their specific needs. Unfortunately, that also means that availability can be limited during some periods of the year.

What to expect

A Loving Home

While in boarding with us, dogs become honorary members of our family. We provide a safe and nurturing home environment, and a daily schedule full of physical activities, mental stimulation, and lots of cuddles.

What’s on the menu

Fun-Filled Days

Dogs boarding with us enjoy the freedom of being outdoors and leash-free for most of the day. Whether it’s engaging in play with each other or with us humans, fetching balls, or accompanying us on outdoor adventures, they’re constantly active. For downtime, they can unwind on our shaded deck or lounge on a sofa indoors. You won’t find any crates or kennels in our home.

Frequently Asked Questions

What requirement must my dog meet in order to be able to board with you?Ovidiu Stoica2023-09-09T17:57:34-04:00

All the dogs that come to stay with us must be very friendly with all dogs and people (especially with little kids), show no signs of anxiety, be up to date on their vaccinations, and not suffer from any serious medical conditions. That’s it!

For more details, contact us and we will get back to you shortly.

Where will my dog stay while boarding with you?NYC Doggies2023-09-09T00:44:29-04:00

We offer boarding and training at Ovidiu’s suburban home in Fairfield County, Connecticut.

The home environment allows us to build a loving and attuned relationship with dogs who join us in our daily activities and adventures.

For more details, contact us and we will get back to you shortly.

Will my dog be crated while boarding with you?NYC Doggies2024-02-07T11:19:37-05:00

We do not crate the dogs that stay with us. While crates serve specific useful purposes for travel, healthcare, and managing the environment of dogs with severe behavioral issues, in everyday use,  the harmful side effects from crating puppies/dogs far outweigh any perceived benefits.

Dogs boarding and training with us have almost unrestricted access to our house, and can sleep wherever they feel most comfortable: a sofa, a dog bed, or the cool floor.

We’d recommend reading our Substack article “Every Puppy Needs a Crate? Think Again.

For more details, contact us and we will get back to you shortly.

Will I get any updates while my dog is boarding with you?NYC Doggies2023-09-09T00:40:00-04:00

All dogs that stay with us in boarding and training will have their own private online album where we regularly post photos and videos of their adventures with us.

We are also always available to respond to questions and concerns via email or phone.

For more details, contact us and we will get back to you shortly.

How far in advance can I book my dog’s stay with you?Ovidiu Stoica2023-09-09T15:51:53-04:00

Customers are welcome, and encouraged, to request our boarding services as early as possible, with priority going to those who asked first. However, we only solidify bookings up to two months in advance.

Life’s uncertainties are ever-present, but we strive to honor all our obligations. By capping the advance booking window at two months, we reduce the likelihood of having to break a commitment.

For more details, contact us and we will get back to you shortly.
