I think the OP is making a pretty broad generalization about private home-boarding. Just as in any profession there are good apples and bad apples. OP, sounds like you have the misfortune of living near a bad apple. Leaving a dog unattended for hours on end is unacceptable whether it's your dog or someone else's. It's unfair to the dog as well as to the neighbors. That being said, most of the downtown JC dog-walkers I know offer boarding as an option to their clients and more often than not the clients are thrilled to take them up on it. There are many benefits if the dog-walker/boarder is responsible and genuinly compassionate towards animals. The dog gets to stay in a comfortable home environment as opposed to a cage in a strange place, more often than not the dog has the company of the dog-walker's own dog(s), the dog is with a person who is not only familiar but probably one of their favorite people, and in many cases the dog-walker will take the boarding dog with them on their "rounds" during the day so the dog gets loads of exercise. As I said, I can only speak for myself and the dog-walkers that I know and associate with in JC. Anyone who wants a recommendation, feel free to PM me. No one should be boarding multiple dogs at a time just to make money and it goes without saying that no one who works with animals and presumably loves them should be neglecting them or mis-treating them in any way. My advice: Let your dog be your guide. Wherever you board your dog, private home or big boarding facility, pay close attention to their mannerisms when you pick them up. If they are panicked and desperate to leave the place, chances are they had a negative experience. But if they are still thrilled to see their dog-walker or happy to return to the boarding facility the next time, then it's a safe bet they were well cared for and felt secure.

Also, just as an aside, many dog-walkers (myself included) offer in-home pet-sitting in which the pet-sitter will come to your home and essentially live there, sleep there, etc while you are away so your dog never has to stay in an unfamiliar place.

I am surprised you think a boarding facility is some wonderful alternative. Do you think your dog won't miss you while it's sitting in a cage all night all alone? My dog only stays with relatives.

r_pinkowitz: *thank you*

And to reiterate: All of us as dog owners have choices about where we leave our canine friends when we travel. Please choose a proper dog-boarding facility, like Boca's (again, other recommendations? my gf and I would love a backup).

When you board a dog in a legal establishment, chances are they're going to get proper care and exercise, in a place that's insured, legally zoned as a kennel, and in a place where they're allowed to bark.

Thanks for proving my point.

Animal Control can take your dog. Animal Control won't be writing you any tickets for that noise, though. (third time I'm typing it).


If you want specifics on NJCACOA, here's the website: http://www.njcacoa.org/aco_authority.htm

For the third time: Animal Control will not issue noise complaint citations, summons, tickets or fines because Animal Control Officers are not trained in domestic disputes, which is exactly what noise complaints are, whether it be a party, a stereo, a dog, etc.



jmiz, Your information is not correct.

Wrong. A noise violation is handled by the local police.

Animal Control does not enforce local ordinances unless it pertains to unlicensed animals (which is something the original poster mentioned that has absolutely nothing to do with his noise problem).

A rabid animal is handled by animal control. A barking dog is handled by the police.

A loose zebra is handled by animal control. A loud stereo is handled by the police.

A dog that bites is handled by animal control. A party in your neighbor's backyard at 3am is handled by the police.

Get the pattern here?

A police officer will often escort an animal control officer on a call, but an animal control officer does not have to respond to a a noise complaint -- even if that noise is generated by an animal.


Sorry, but your statement is not accurate for Jersey City.

Animal Control should be called regarding all nuisance animal complaints. 201-547-4888, Animal Control is on duty for all types of complaints Monday thru Friday. (except when the City is closed for Holidays). Anything outside of those hours is considered "After-hours" and is AC will only respond to animal related emergencies.

JCPD will handle any complaint they feel warrants a patrol car during after hours.

NJ State Law

4:19-15.8 Licensing of kennel, pet shop, shelter, pound.

Any person who keeps or operates or proposes to establish a kennel, a pet shop, a shelter or a pound shall apply to the clerk or other official designated to license dogs in the municipality where such establishment is located, for a license entitling him to keep or operate such establishment.

This also includes "doggie day care and boarding"

4:19-15.2 Dogs; license and metal registration tag required; placing tag on dog

Any person who shall own, keep or harbor a dog of licensing age shall annually or every third year, in accordance with a 3-year dog license or renewal thereof issued under subsection b. of section 12 of this act (C. 4:19-15.12b), apply for and procure from the clerk of the municipality or other official designated by the governing body thereof to license dogs in the municipality in which he resides, a license and official metal registration tag for each such dog so owned, kept or harbored, and shall place upon each such dog a collar or harness with the registration tag securely fastened thereto.

This also means that the person who owns the property that an unlicensed dog is residing at can receive a summons.


You can also see our municipal laws HERE and to the left you will see Chapter 90 Animals. Click on that and go to: ARTICLE III - Dogs.

If Animal Control comes to investigate a barking complaint and your dog isn't licensed, I do think your dog can be seized



Are you complaining about a barking dog or an unlicensed dog? A dog with a licence doesn't bark less than an unlicensed dog. What is the relation between the two that you're trying to point out? I'm confused.

A noise complaint is handled by the police. A malnourished animal is handled by Animal Control. Neither are likely to bust down your neighbor's door while they're on vacation because the dog is barking.


Animal Control can cite dog owners for noise violations and unlicensed pets.

The info about licensing is just an FYI.
Apologies for any lack of clarity.

Neighbors...

When you go out of town, please use licensed facilities like Boca's to board your canine friends. (My girlfriend and I use Boca's and like them a ton ? does anyone have other recommendations for good local kennels?)

If you leave your dog with a "dog sitter" in a private home, you're most likely creating a nuisance for that dog sitter's neighbors. Your dog is going to miss you, and it's going to bark, particularly if your dog sitter stashes your dog in a spare room all day. (Which is happening, or I wouldn't be posting this. PM me if you want details.)

If Animal Control comes to investigate a barking complaint at your dog sitter's house and your dog isn't licensed, I do think your dog can be seized ? I'm sure the forum will correct me if I'm wrong on that point.

FYI: It's NJ state law that our dogs be licensed after 7 months. A lot of people I've met in the VV and HP dog runs don't know this.
