Outstanding New Jersey Vacation Boarding Program for Dogs

Dive Into a World of Adventure and Experiences with the Vacation Immersion Program (VIP) for Dogs

Are you tired of leaving your furry friend behind every time you go on vacation? Do you want your dog to have a VIP lifestyle experience while you’re away? Are you looking for an alternative to traditional kennel boarding? Look no further than the Vacation Immersion Program (VIP) at Happy Dogs Boarding and Training.

The VIP program is a unique alternative to traditional boarding that provides dogs with a luxurious and experiential learning experience. Unlike typical kennels, the VIP program is designed to integrate seamlessly into the lifestyles of people with active lives. If you don’t already have your dog integrated into your active lifestyle, this is a great opportunity to get started.

At HDBT, we understand that your pet is an important part of your family. That’s why we’ve created a program that allows them to enjoy a vacation of their own while you’re away. Our team of experienced trainers and handlers will provide your dog with personalized attention, exercise, and socialization opportunities to ensure they are happy, healthy, and safe throughout their stay. We take them to fun places, so you can take them to fun places in a fully integrated manner.

Vacation boarding program for dogs. We are located in New Jersey.

The VIP program offers a wide range of activities, amenities, and experiences for dogs. From swimming to hiking on our nature trails, your pet will have access to all the fun and exciting things our facility and vicinity has to offer. Dogs can also participate in add-ons such as obedience training, stay & train courses, and educational opportunities to learn new skills and proper behaviors.

But what truly sets the VIP program apart is the integration into the lifestyle of people. Dogs are allowed to accompany our staff members on outings such as coffee shop visits and picnics in the park. This hands-on approach provides your pet with real-life experiences and reinforces positive behavior. We also send you photos and videos of your pup during their stay with us.

Safety is our top priority at Happy Dogs Boarding and Training. That’s why we’ve implemented strict protocols to ensure the health and well-being of each dog in our care. Our facility features state-of-the-art security systems, and all staff members are trained in canine first aid. Unlike many training programs, dog walkers, and even kennels, we are fully licensed and insured in the state of New Jersey with an excellent track record with animals.

Don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what some of our VIP program participants have to say:

“My dog loves going to Happy Dogs! She always comes back exhausted from all the fun activities she gets to do.” – Jessica Ma, VIP Program Member

“I was hesitant to leave my dog with anyone else, but the VIP program at Happy Dogs put my mind at ease. I could tell that they genuinely cared about my pet’s well-being.” – Paul D’Auria, VIP Program Member

I want to thank John Soares and his staff, for their remarkable training with our 5 year old German Shepherd, Duke. Prior to training with John Soares, my wife found Duke to be unmanageable when walking Duke outside. Duke became Dog Aggressive. Duke's tugging and barking had to be addressed.Having trained with John Soares years ago with success, I had total confidence, John and his excellent experienced staff would correct Dukes behavior. After John evaluated Dukes behavior, John explained to my wife and I in great detail, why Duke behaved in this manner. John designed a custom training plan to aid in Dukes training. Understand, No two dogs are alike.With Johns advice, my wife and I scheduled Duke for a Board and Stay Training. On a frequent basis during Dukes stay, John sent use training videos of Dukes improvement. John always maintain open lines of communication.After completing Dukes stay, John did a series of one on one training sessions with Duke, both my wife and I. The results were positive and enlightening.Both my wife and I applaud John Soares and his excellent and experience training staff with working with Duke. Having worked as a volunteer in a local kennel, I seen to many dogs surrendered for this type of behavior. I knew if anyone could correct this behavior, John Soares could.There are dog trainers and then there is John Soares. The teacher of trainers. Johns knowledge and experience with canines must be recognized as Outstanding. John has a God given Gift with training and communicating with Mans Best Friend.Both my wife and I highly recommend John Soares and no other.John with out doubt is a FIVE STAR TRAINER an a Great Guy!!!

Our 1 year old GSD just finished his board and train. We cannot say enough great things about John and his training. I mean just look at his history! You can immediately tell his passion for this is genuine. We cannot recommend him enough. Our Echo had a tough life before us. We all believe he was not dumped, but he was an escape artist and they forgot to microchip him on time. With that, he did not know proper manners. After the shelter found him as a stray, he was adopted and then surrendered THREE times by THREE different families. All because he lacked obedience, which was never his fault. John has not only trained Echo, but also trains us so that we are setting him up for continued success. We will definitely be continuing training with him. Thank you John and your team for taking great care of our boy.

Highly recommend!!! John is amazing at training. He and the entire staff have gone above and beyond to ensure our dog was properly trained. He provided clear instructions and responded promptly to any of our questions. We are forever grateful to John and his team. Our dog is so much better at walking— no more pulling me or dragging me across neighbors lawns or chasing squirrels!!! . Again I highly recommend this place for any dog training needs. You will not be disappointed! Thank you John!

We highly recommend John as a trainer! After interviewing many trainers in for our 18-month old Rottweiler, and after he evaluated our dog, we though that John was the best at setting our expectations for her training, putting in practical terms what goals we could achieve and how we would get there. Our dog spent 5 weeks with John and we are really happy with her training. John not only trained our dog but the 4 post-board training sessions with us and our dog, trained us how to handle her as well. We found John to be really observant correcting our body language and verbal cues, explaining to us what our dog’s perspective is. This helped us to adjust our routines with her at home and proof his training. We look forward to her next training session with him as we make progress together!
