Boarding your pets can be defined simply as an overnight stay with provided meals and attendant care. What makes Highland Kennel one of the most respected kennels for dog boarding in New Jersey since 1978?

Reasons Highland Kennel offers superior New Jersey dog boarding services Include:

  • Runs are private, with indoor and outdoor pet areas.
  • Full roof protection in each run means your pet is never exposed to the harsh elements.
  • A window lets in natural sunlight in every run so your pet is bathed in as much fresh air as the season allows.
  • Providing superior cleanliness, runs have a small wall in between each other so dogs cannot lift their legs into someone else’s room (boys will be boys after all).
  • Offering safety and security, runs are enclosed with 1” chain link. This means that the holes are only 25% as large as a standard chain link fence so paws and toys stay where they belong.
  • We feed the highest quality food to dogs and cats not on special diets.
  • Dogs not on a special diet are given biscuits throughout the day and at bedtime.
  • Animals are fed from stainless steel bowls twice a day.
  • Special diets and needs are accommodated for those requiring three or more meals and Insulin is administered to our Diabetic friends at meal time.
  • Animals drink fresh water from stainless steel buckets (or dishes for the low to the ground kids).
  • Oversized runs are available for giant breeds or owners with multiple dogs. Inquire for rates.
  • Play time is available for high energy pooches at a nominal cost.

30 Years of Professional Animal Experience and Concern
After 35 years, the science of providing safe and hygienic care for pets is ingrained in everything we do. The art and science of keeping our four-legged friends happy in an environment different from home is something about which we feel passionately. Our dedicated clients and our four-legged friends keep us honest about this on a daily basis. Open 7 days a week, the hours are substantial — but a love of animals drives us to serve the community.

It can be easy to look good when your facility is new and shiny; the true measure is how you look after the newness wears off. And we've been told we're going strong!
