$50/hour | charged round-trip
We simplified our travel/transportation costs and made travel up to 30 mins for boarding and training free earlier this year; this remains the same. Due to increased costs of insurance, staffing, and additional crash tested car crates, we have needed to adjust our travel costs again to ensure that boarding dogs are sufficiently covered especially in peak seasons when we are out traveling for pick ups, drop offs, and training. Further, due to weather most of the year and the behavior status of most of the dogs we service, we typically must travel directly to and from our operating location, meaning that transports are specifically dedicated and no other tasks can be completed during the round trip of travel. Our new transportation/travel costs are now for round trip (i.e. if you are one hour from Newton NJ, your rate is based on 2 hours of travel).
Travel for training remains mostly the same and will remained charged only one way up to one hour. After one hour, the remaining travel will be charged both ways.
Travel for training: under 30mins free | 30-59mins $15 | under 2hrs $30 | 2hrs+ $60+
All tolls both ways, sales tax additional. Daycare transportation offered on a case by case basis only.

At Beyond the Walk we are redefining dog care and reimagining daycare and boarding. Dogs will enjoy a unique boarding experience that prioritizes exercise, rest, and enrichment for your unique dog. Our professionally trained team is educated and experienced in caring for dogs of a variety of personalities and behavioral and medical needs. At Beyond, biologically appropriate outlets are our focus; enabling dogs to just be a dog through sniffing, digging, toys, and free movement on activity rotations. We have a variety of meal enrichment items and specialized equipment especially for high energy and power individuals including a slat mill for cardio, a high tension tug mutt toy, and flirt poles for chasing.
Our care goes beyond daycare, boarding, and training.
daycare $50 up to 12 hours, $25 up to 6 hours
boarding $70/night, $65/night each additional dog
transportation services under 30min round trip no cost*, $50/hr | charged round trip

We provide care around the clock for boarded dogs and are available to clients at any time during their dog's stay.
Drop off/pick up times are flexible 7 days a week 7am-7pm by appointment.
We respond promptly, but please allow at least 72 business hours.
Unfortunately, we do NOT allow tours of the area where dogs sleep. We constantly have canine guests resting in that area and strangers touring would cause undue stress especially for our guests with fear and behavioral concerns. We can supply video call tours or photos, however in person tours are strictly prohibited. This courtesy is also extended to your dog during their stay; your dog also will not be subjected to strangers walking by their resting area. Thank you for your understanding. Do not knock on the door or approach the fence. This puts humans and dogs in potential danger. Call/text us when you have arrived and remain in your vehicle after pulling into a parking spot (we are reducing cars idling in the street).
Beyond operates in a real home. Visits and services by appointment only. Please reach out to schedule.
New clients: are required to provide a new account deposit before reservations or trials will be accepted. This deposit will be applied to your first daycare, boarding, or training service within 3 months (or more at our discretion if booking for a specific event more than 3 months in the future). This deposit will only be returned to you at our discretion if we decide we are not a good fit for your dog. This deposit will be retained in full and non-transferrable if you cancel your first reservation 3 weeks or less from the time of service. This deposit is non-transferrable.
Note: Trials still are not required for daycare or boarding unless specifically required by us or desired by the owner and we have availability for such visit or trial.
