Kennel Free Dog Boarding and Play Days

Taking your dog with you on a trip is not always possible. Or perhaps you just need your dog out of the house overnight LIPTPS of Massapequa can be your pup’s home away from home, whether you’re just looking to leave your dog overnight or for an extended period.

Unlike traditional kennels, our guests are never put in cages, kennels or crates. Our kennel free boarding offers your dog beds, couches, rugs, chairs, pillows and even a lap for your dog to relax on. We do not charge extra for individual attention; your dog will always have human company. No longer is it the dreaded trip to the boarding kennel but something you dog looks forward to – a trip to LIPTPS!

To allow your pet(s) adequate time to relax and get acclimated guests we ask that you arrive with your dog before 6 p.m. on the day they are to begin boarding unless otherwise scheduled. Dogs may be dropped off as early as 7 am. Please allow extra time upon check-in to verify feeding, medications and any special needs that your pet may have.

  • All feedings

  • Up to 5 private walks

Preparing your dog for boarding 

  • We encourage you to bring your pup to our location for daycare prior to an overnight or extended stay. We recommend at least one day of daycare prior to your dog’s overnight stay. 

  • Three days of daycare is ideal to allow your pup to get used to the surroundings and property and have a better overall experience. 

  • Your dog will become comfortable and learn that you will be coming back to bring them home. It will also allow us an opportunity to learn your pup’s personality and play preferences. 

Your dog’s boarding stay

  • We care about your dog’s safety and comfort.

  • We encourage you to bring your pup’s own food to maintain their regular diet and avoid any digestion issues. 

  • You may consider bringing a little extra food for boarding as they burn a lot more calories in play than they typically do at home! 

  • You are encouraged to bring any bedding that will make your dog feel “at home” and we will provide it only to them. (Please remember we cannot guarantee bedding will be returned in the same condition.) 

During their boarding stay, your dog will be fed at approximately 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., with a treat or snack at nap time if approved by you. Food will be served and prepared exactly as requested by you. We’ll accommodate any special dietary needs your pup may have, and don’t charge extra for feeding or administering medication.
As your dog will play in an open area with other dogs, we do not accept toys from home. Your dog may feel possessive of their own toys and many are not suitable for the playroom as they are too easily torn or ripped.
