K9dergarten – Doomed

K9dergarten abandons Hoboken – focuses on Jersey City

The doggy day-care shop K9dergarten (which just opened this year up on 14th Street) didn’t make it to the end of 2014 successfully. They abruptly closed shop.

The place recently underwent change of ownership, and they decided it was best to eliminate the Hoboken location, and focus on building their “HQ” up in Jersey City. This location was primarily a pickup / dropoff “satellite,” which was probably a pain in the neck with all the potholes in Hoboken – which must have cost them thousands in suspension repairs for their vehicles. Smart move.

Good Luck in neighboring JC, K9!

K9dergarten open (part time) in Hoboken

February 2014 Update:

Took long enough, but K9dergarten, the doggie day care drop off location on 14th Street uptown finally open, I noticed.

They have split hours for now: Monday through Friday from 7am-10am and 5pm-8pm. And weekends from 12pm-5pm.

I still believe dogs shouldn’t live in apartments unless they have a full-time owner to take care of them. Just not right.

“I still believe dogs shouldn’t live in apartments unless they have a full-time owner to take care of them. Just not right.”

Is it better for a pet to sit in a cage at a shelter (or worse, if not adopted)? I think that dog would much rather live in a small apt with a loving owner.

And some Apts are as big or bigger than houses. Ours is over 1600 sq ft and our dog goes to daycare and plays with his friends 5 days per week.

Following your logic, should people not have kids if both parents work and the kid has to go to daycare 5 days a week?

This isn’t the 1950s anymore 411 – most people need to work to afford the cost of living, esp in this area. It doesn’t mean they can’t be good and loving parents, to dogs or kids.

My abandoned and then adopted by me Shiba Inu is enjoying napping on my couch right now. I sometimes joke and am saddened by the idea that my dog has a better life than a lot of kids in this world – from healthcare to daycare…[quote comment=”224219″]“I still believe dogs shouldn’t live in apartments unless they have a full-time owner to take care of them.

Re ” dogs shouldn’t live in apartments unless they have a full-time owner to take care of them” – explain . . . what’s the difference between an apartment and a house, even a suburban house? A long long time ago I used to leave my dog in my fenced yard in the suburbs, but then people just stopped paying attention to the notion of private property and meter readers or trash haulers or whoever would randomly open the gate and leave it open, and my dog would do what comes naturally – wander. If you are suggesting that only people who can stay with their dogs 24/7 should possess them, well, that’s a pretty small group of people. Otherwise, at this point you have the folks who have the electric collars (is THAT “right”?) and you have the rest of the world that keeps their pets contained when they are away. All that said, I guess I just don’t see the difference between leaving your pooch in your 7000 square foot house versus your 800 sq ft apartment.

Drex, it depends on the breed. Some small dogs like rat terriers do not tolerate being inactive for long in a smaller space. Also, two of the fastest dogs, greyhounds and huskies – are Type A at play but couch potatoes at home if they are well exercised. That said, given two locations of the same business, my $$ go outside of Hoboken due to the more relaxed vibe in surrounding neighborhoods.
