Often referred to simply as the Distemper shot, this shot contains vaccinations against Distemper, Parvovirus, and Parainfluenza. This booster must be administered according to your veterinarian’s recommendation. This is usually annually or every two/three years.
Bordatella vaccines must be administered either annually or bi-annually, according to your veterinarian’s recommendation. While we recommend the bi-annual vaccination, we gladly accept annual bordatella vaccinations.

Boarding is available 365 days a year. There are no Check-Ins or Check-Outs on major holidays (we're open for the pooches but closed to the public). Reservations are highly recommended.
|Mon-Sun:||7:00am - 7:00pm|
|Major Holidays:||Open for the pooches, Closed to the public.|
All boarding dogs must check-in prior to 12:00 pm. We understand that "life happens" and this is not always possible. If an exception is needed, kindly contact us to make arrangements.
Dogs can check-out anytime during our regular business hours. On the day of Check-Out, our boarding guests play for FREE until 12:00pm. All dogs who check-out after 12:00pm will be charged an additional $18 extended daycare fee. Please be prompt when picking up your pooch as all dogs not picked up by closing will be boarded overnight for an additional night's boarding fee.
It is always best to avoid changing your pet's normal feeding routine. We therefore request that you bring food and any medications your pet takes at mealtimes. Customers are responsible for supplying enough of both for their dog's entire stay. Please do not bring oversized bags or tubs of food for your dog. Instead, we kindly ask that you bag your dog's food by individual meal (not by day). When measuring enough food for your dog's stay, please make sure to include a little extra. Due to our guests being quite active during their stay, they have a tendency to develop larger appetites than normal. If you choose, The Barker Lounge will gladly supply food for your dog at a cost of $2.00 per-meal. Please make sure your dog's name is on all food, medication and any other belongings.
We encourage a blanket, unlaundered t-shirt, and a favorite toy for your dog's comfort. All extras will be kept in your dog's doggy suite and he/she will have access to them only during the night time hours. Please do not bring any irreplaceable items as we cannot guarantee their return.
Please do NOT bring food bowls. We provide clean, stainless steel bowls for all of our guests. Please do NOT bring any type of rawhide chews.
We understand that plans change! If you need to cancel a dog boarding reservation, we kindly ask that you do so at least TWO DAYS prior to the day of the reservation. THIS MEANS BY NO LATER THAN 12pm, TWO DAYS PRIOR TO THE RESERVATION. Boarders at our facility in Livingston, NJ who don't show up for their reservation or fail to give us the required TWO DAY notice, will be charged the greater of 1 night boarding or 50% of the original reservation.
Please note that, at times, a NON-REFUNDABLE deposit may be required in order to make your boarding reservation.
