"Care Built for Dogs" is a networking page for dog daycare and boarding service providers that meet exceptional standards relating to the care they provide to their canine guests and clients. "Built for Dogs" serves both service providers and dog owners seeking care.
We are working diligently in our state of New Jersey to create a new description for enriched boarding to set us and others like us apart from traditional kennels. Due to antiquated laws that have not kept up with the ways in which the daycare and boarding industry has changed over the last decade, many excellent care providers face obstacles with their municipalities at some point in their operations relating to zoning and licensing or are halted from beginning operations to serve you with a unique service. We will continue this work to spread change throughout the country to increase the ability of existing enriched care providers to continue and new enriched care providers to begin their services to elevate the standard of care in the industry.
To join us in this movement, please consider signing our petition urging lawmakers to create a distinction between traditional kennels and enriched boarding and work cooperatively with care providers to develop relevant guidelines. Click here for the petition
For Dog Owners
**We JUST launched this program! We are very excited to help you connect with an enriched boarding provider as soon as possible! It will take some time for us to add partners to our listings! Please check back soon for listings.**
Service providers are listed first by state alphabetically, then by city alphabetically. To find your state and/or city, scroll to your state, then browse by city or use ctrl F to search for a specific city within the list. We will look into adding a locator search tool in the future. To inquire with or book with a service provider listed, go to their website by clicking their link or reach out using their listed contact information.
Why are some approved partners not listed? How can you connect with them?
For the above reason, many of our partners are listed with us internally and we are happy to connect you with them, however we have agreed to keep them off our public listings page to protect their privacy so they do not run the risk of losing their ability to serve you and their livelihood to overly generalized and constricting laws. Should you not find a suitable provider in your area on the public list, you may request via email to have your contact information shared with unlisted providers in your area. The provider may reach out you to connect. Note: They may reach out to you via a private number or general email address to screen you as a prospective client first.
Although we review service providers listed here to the best of our ability, we make no representations or guarantees. By using "Care Built for Dogs", you are agreeing to hold BFD, its operators, and associates harmless for any and all damages. You may view our application via the button below to see the vigorous screening process we require of our partners.
For Service Providers

Providers that wish to remain unlisted, how does it work?
We understand the position you are in. We can include you on our private, internal list after approval. If we are contacted by an owner seeking service, we will supply you with the client's contact information, with permission, for you to choose to reach out to via email or phone. We will not share your business information if you do not want us to.
Thank you to all the dog owners seeking enriched care options and providers working hard to offer Care Built for Dogs.
