As of April 1, 2007, new owners have taken over the previous Graceland Doggie Day Care and will be running under the name “Hoboken Unleashed”.
I had a chance to visit the other day to check out the operation. It seemed like a well-run facility with ample staff to care for the dogs. During “play time”, the pups were allowed to run around in various walled-off areas. They have provisions for larger or smaller dogs, and canines that don’t get along with others. All the dogs I saw were having a grand ‘ole time frolicking in the main play area. Each section was well maintained with someone supervising the whole day, as well as frequent clean-ups.
Hoboken Unleashed also plans some site improvements over the upcoming weeks. One is an industrial strength de-humidification system which will help reduce ambient humidity and result in a cooler atmosphere. Upgraded Plexiglas doors to replace the chain-link fences and even expanding the grooming options once they get the trained staff in place.
