About The Metro Pooch

Welcome to The Metro Pooch ~
A Luxury Hotel, Day Camp  & Spa for Dogs

The Metro Pooch, located in North Branford, Connecticut, features an off-leash, fully supervised Dog Day Camp (day care for dogs), overnight Dog Boarding in luxury hotel-like suites and a full-service Dog Grooming spa.  The Metro Pooch was created for those of you who “pamper your pup” and want only the best for your four-legged best friend!  We invite you to explore what makes us different and how we are trying to make the word “kennel” a word of the past.  So, from all of us here at The Metro Pooch (including those with 2 legs or 4!), we welcome you to our site – please take some time to explore!


Our mission at The Metro Pooch is to provide an exciting social experience for dogs and dog owners; to create a new standard for dog care, one that includes unbeatable measures to ensure the health and safety of its four legged companions. As a Pet Care Services Association (formerly known as the ABKA or American Boarding Kennel Association) member, we stay committed to their standard of excellence.

The Metro Pooch staff is dedicated to giving the pets in their care a fun-filled day, of emotional and mental stimulation, and providing the owners with the peace of mind that their pampered pooch is receiving the utmost in personal care and attention while they are participating in activities at our facility.

The Metro Pooch is open 7 days a week, 365 days a year where your dogs will be under the watchful loving and protective eyes of our professionally trained staff of Certified Pet Care Technicians. Rest assured knowing that the team working with your pampered pooches during their time in our Dog Grooming Spa, our Doggie Day Care program or overnight boarding, are not only dog lovers, but the best care givers around!

All Pet Guests must pass an initial evaluation where temperament and socialization skills are evaluated to ensure the safety of all Pet Guests. Guests must be at least 6 months of age, spayed or neutered and have been vaccinated (Distemper, Rabies, Bordetella) prior to enrollment.
