Ridgewood Canine Camp offers overnight boarding, but not like most kennels. Your dog will spend the day in a playgroup with the regularly scheduled daycare dogs. At night, we offer clean private kennels for your dog to sleep. Also, for your peace of mind, staff member, Jessie lives on site!

Please send your dog’s food along so we can keep his/her diet consistent. You are also welcome to send any bedding, blankets, or toys. These items will only be in your dog’s personal kennel, but Ridgewood Canine Camp will not be held responsible for any chewed or damaged items. Please do NOT send bowls. We wash bowls after every meal and trying to determine which bowls go with which dog would be a real challenge!

Prior to a boarding reservation, we prefer your dog to attend a few days of daycare. This allows your dog to become familiar with our staff and familiar with this active daycare environment.
