    "Big or small… we love and care for them all!"

Pet Daycare and Boarding in South Jersey

We believe that our pets are not only our very loyal friends, they are also family members. We understand how stressful the boarding experience can be to a pet, with a new environment and people, unfamiliar noises and scents. We treat our boarders with the special love and attention that they deserve. Here at Clif Wyck Farms Kennels, we make every effort to ensure that your pets’ stay with us is extra special. We treat each one as if they were our own, and provide them with the best care and surroundings. Come in for a visit! No need to call in advance. See for yourself that Clif Wyck Farms Kennels is the next best thing to your own home.

Welcome Dr. Melissa Shaw!

From now until December 31st, anyone who schedules an initial chiropractic appointment will receive a 50% discount (normally $135)!
In keeping with our philosophy of treating all dogs and “the whole dog” as if they were our own, K9 Basics is excited & proud to announce our new partnership with Dr. Melissa Shaw of Holmdel, NJ! Dr. Shaw has been a human chiropractor for the last 14 years. Knowing the benefits humans receive from chiropractic care, Dr. Shaw combined her love of animals with her desire to help them receive the same relief from discomfort and loss of mobility to enter an intensive postgraduate course to become a Certified Animal Chiropractor through the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association. A very unique and special field of expertise, Dr. Shaw provides care that focuses on abnormal movements of the spine, the effects these restrictions have on the nervous system and the entire body of the animal. The goal of chiropractic treatment is to maximize mobility and optimize nervous system function to allow unrestricted exchange of information between the brain and the rest of the body. Dr. Shaw is one of only a handful of Certified Animal Chiropractors in the State of NJ and has been treating dogs and cats successfully, providing relief, comfort and improving their lives. Brian and I can personally attest to her skills due to the marked results we have seen with our five dogs as a result of her care.

Dr. Shaw is available every 2 weeks on Tuesdays for chiropractic appointments, onsite at K9 Basics Dog Training, from 9 AM to 5 PM. Additional appointments will be available for scheduling and posted on the K9 Basics website calendar. Clients who are interested in scheduling their dog(s) for chiropractic services are required to download and complete a referral form which can be found by going to Dr. Shaw’s website, www.animalchiropractornj.com and providing it to her at the time of the appointment. Initial appointments typically take one (1) hour and include a detailed medical history, gait analysis and subsequent adjustment based on Dr. Shaw’s assessment. To schedule an appointment, please call the K9 Basics main office @ 866-592-2742 option 0, or you can contact Dr. Shaw directly at 732-670-4271.

Kennel and Daycare Adjustments Starting October 1st

Over the past 14 ½ years, Clif Wyck Farms Kennels has established itself as a respected dog and cat boarding facility for almost every need, providing every pet the love, care, and attention they deserve as if they were our own. We are greatly appreciative of our clients and the trust they have put in us, but after long and hard consideration, we have decided to enact some changes for the betterment of our staff and ourselves.

Effective October 1st, Clif Wyck Farms Kennels will be downsizing our kennel operation, which will reduce the number of boarding clients at any one time (not including dogs attending our Board & Train program). We advise all clients that are considering boarding at Clif Wyck in the near future to contact our office to confirm availability and book their stays.


The kennel office will have adjusted business hours and will now be open Monday through Friday from 9:30 AM to 11:45 AM and 1:30 PM to 6 PM for admissions, discharges, Doggy Daycare, and food order purchases. We will be open on Saturday from 9 AM to 5 PM for admissions, discharges, and food order purchases. VDN purchases can also be completed with our K9 Basics trainers on Saturday from 8 AM to 12 PM. Doggy Daycare will continue its standard operating hours of 7 AM-10 AM for drop-off and pick-up no later than 6:25 PM. The kennel office will be closed on Sundays after October 1st, hence there will be no admitted or discharges on that day.


We never have and never will warehouse dogs for boarding or Doggy Daycare. For the safety and well-being of dogs and staff, the number of dogs we bring in at any one time is based on the number of staff available and working daily. In today’s environment, employee staffing has become nearly impossible to maintain for larger counts of dogs. We hope to reduce/eliminate the current waitlist that we understand has caused some frustration for clients, old and new, who have been looking to bring their dogs in more frequently. We appreciate the patience and understanding that we have received from our valued clients thus far.


Effective October 1st, the following pricing increases will be in effect. These increases are due to a variety of reasons, such as the continuing cost of COVID (paying for sick time and overtime), increased cost of supplies, labor costs, and inflation.
