You may want to schedule a possible play session (daycare) to better acquaint your pet to Purr’n Pooch in advance of his/her initial stay. Tips for your pet’s enjoyable and stress-free visit to Purr’n Pooch Pet Resorts.
The Big Day
The day of arrival
please try to check-in by 3pm so we may have the opportunity to evaluate and give personal time with your pet prior to closing hours. Allow yourself ample time to fill out the proper paperwork.
Make the check-in time a happy time. Pets can often sense our anxieties and will equate check-in as a negative action rather than a positive fun time.
We supply pets with our house cuisine, you may choose to provide your own food (at no additional charge)
as long as each meals serving size is prepared in a separate baggie with your pets name on it for the entire length of the stay. Try not to feed your pet a meal prior to check-in. Pack the treats and allow us to give them to your pet when your pet is settled and comfortable.
Your Pet’S Return Home
After picking up your pet, please, DO NOT offer food or water right away.
Most pets are very excited to return home and will gulp water or engulf food. This could trigger a digestive upset…diarrhea or vomiting. If the pet appears thirsty, offer a few ice cubes in a bowl.
Contact us with any questions about your pet’s stay, we will be happy to let you know in detail how the pet adjusted.
We are here to provide the most enjoyable stay for one of the most important living beings in your life…your pet.
We look forward to his/her visit with us.
Pets leaving after 11 a.m. will be charged an additional one (1) night’s boarding stay unless scheduled for grooming (hair cut) the day of check-out.

Although doggie daycare didn’t gain popularity across the country until the 1990s
it was during the 1970s when Purr’n Pooch’s President Dick Palazzo invested his time and love into his first boarding resort in Wall, NJ. To the astonishment of his clients and colleagues, Palazzo would open the kennel doors to allow his boarding dogs to enjoy leash-free, group play in the halls and yards of the facility.
Dick Palazzo, President, Purr’n Pooch Pet Resorts
“Animal behavior was a young science in the 1970s and many colleagues questioned why I would take such huge risks with the dogs, allowing them to play together while boarding at the Purr’n Pooch. Fifty years later, I am proud to see that doggie daycare has become a service accessible to pet owners across the country.”

Groomer Suzie Woodley is celebrating her 26th year with Purr’n Pooch!
A seasoned groomer of 36 years, Suzie is especially passionate about grooming cats and enjoys the challenge of even the most finicky personality.
“Cats require different handling than dogs and should be groomed in a quiet, calm surrounding.”
Suzie’s standard services for cats include trimming of the undercoat, shaving rear areas of fur, trimming nails and pad hair, baths and ear cleaning.
She’s also very excited her feline friends will enjoy the new Wall Cattery/Jungle Room and the adjacent, state-of-the-art grooming room just for cats.
Suzie’s Tip: “It’s very important to get your cat accustomed early to grooming if it’s of a long haired breed.”
Tips for Grooming Your Cat at Home
Cats are very sensitive to sound, touch and texture so here at the Purr’n Pooch we go to great lengths to make sure your cat is comfortable when being groomed. Here are some tips for grooming your cat at home that, with patience and time, are as easy as 1-2-3:
Create a tranquil area to bathe your cat, free of loud sound and activity.
The sound of running water is very soothing, which is why Dick Palazzo designed and installed a 22-foot indoor waterfall and rock wall for our feline guests to enjoy in Purr’n Pooch’s custom-designed cattery.
Cats need to firmly grip a surface with their paws and claws to feel secure when bathing so make sure to place your cat on a towel
carpet or yoga mat. Tubs and stainless steel surfaces are slippery and create a sense of insecurity for cats causing them to tense up during bathing.
In order to create a peaceful environment to bathe your cat
Purr’n Pooch recommends giving him/her a sponge bath by using a feline-friendly shampoo. Massage the shampoo into his/her coat and then gently towel dry the fur. Make sure to hold and rub your cat through the process to ensure a relaxing experience.
Looking to pamper your best friend? If you enjoy a massage, wait until you see how much your pooch will, too! Our dog massages are performed by a certified therapist in a tranquil spa room. The benefits of dog massage include:
Decrease stress and anxiety.
Contribute to a healthy coat and skin.
Ease muscle tension and soreness.
Increase circulation and relieve muscle spasms.
A dog massage is the perfect way to pamper your favorite pooch.
Our team is excited to educate the next generation of professional grooming and spa specialists. One cannot succeed in this profession without a genuine dedication to the loving care and treatment of animals. We look forward to instilling this passion for pets in our students.
